Welcome to  Gluten-Free Goddess® Recipes

@How I Got Here

After a decade of subtle symptoms that waxed and waned seemingly by whim, an acute phase in my early forties produced IBS-D induced misery- with a dash of dermatitis herpetiformis, autoimmune cataracts in my 40's, B vitamin deficiency, migraines-- and some fat malabsorption thrown in for good measure.

By December 2001, I discovered I carried one of the two classic genes linked to developing celiac disease (HLA DQ8 and HLA DQ2 are the two known 'celiac genes'). I also found out I am blessed with a copy of the gene linked to gluten sensitivity (HLA DQ1).

Faced with this double whammy of genetic luck I gave up wheat and gluten on the spot, and embraced the wheat-free gluten-free diet. Whole. Heartedly. After years of symptoms- why not?

Guess what.

Within two days I removed the Pepto Bismol bottle from my purse.

An answer.

At last.



On to healing!

Pantry clearing and sponge tossing ensued.

It took a good 'year plus' of living 100% gluten-free and wheat-free to heal the gut damage wrought by my evil nemesis (children will often heal faster- sometimes in six to nine months). And, I'm sorry to say, some ill effects from decades of exposure still linger (FODMAPs remain difficult to digest, and cause IBS symptoms alarmingly akin to ingesting gluten).

But each day gluten-free (pain-free!) is a gift.

And my body is grateful.

Living gluten-free has also inspired me to get even more creative in the kitchen.

About this blog:

Gluten-Free Goddess® Recipes is a family affair. Each week on Gluten-Free Goddess® we share our family's favorite wheat-free gluten-free recipes, developed in my own humble kitchen. From Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas to Apple Crisp we focus on fresh, seasonal, family style cooking.

The kind of food we actually cook- and crave.

Publisher, recipe developer, and author Gluten-Free Goddess® Karina discovered she was gluten intolerant in late 2001- after a decade of unseemly, classic celiac symptoms. She has been cooking and baking gluten-free ever since, serving up hundreds of original recipes on her popular food blog, launched in late fall 2005.
