A New Beginning

Welcome to GFCF in Real Life!

I'm Jenny, a mom to three fantastic kids, one of whom was diagnosed with autism at age 2 1/2. We started the GFCF diet (gluten free-casein free) 5 years ago and have seen fantastic results. My son is not cured, but I can say that everything has been worth it and he is far better off with the diet than without it.

When I started my son on the GFCF diet 5 years ago, there were not many resources, nor many cookbooks, and the diet was widely regarded as quackery. I had to get over my own misconceptions about the real importance of diet before I could really embrace this choice and dive in. I'm so glad I did!

My goal for this blog is to be a resource for those who may just be starting out with the GFCF diet. It's hard and sometimes confusing and I hope that I can be a guide who can help you on the path to success.

I will do my best to post daily with tips, tricks, recipes, and stories to help you along the way. Or you can laugh at me. That's fine, there's probably a lot to laugh at! You can feel free to let me know of anything that's on your mind or ask me anything and I'll do my best to answer. I want to be here for you and maybe we can help each other!

Glad to have you here with me!
