If you're reading this, I want to start off by first just saying thank you. Thank you for giving me a platform to share my health journey and to help others find their own path to wellness. Thank you for every recipe of mine that you make and every question that you ask. Thank you for giving this girl with Crohn's and a love for food the opportunity to share her story, and, maybe, if i'm lucky, make a difference in at least one person's life.
I was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease in High School. If you would have told me then that I'd be where I am today, I wouldn't have believed it for a second. I spent most of my 4 years of High School in and out of doctors offices and hospitals. Living with a chronic illness is the hardest thing that I'll ever have to do, but it's also made me into the person I am today. Yeah, yeah. Cheesy, I know. But, it's true.
Today, I'm a girl who's finishing her last year of college. I'm a girl who loves to go to the gym, watch cheesy Hallmark movies, and make a mean banana bread. I'm a girl who's not done learning, but I'm a girl who has a passion to share what she has learned so far.
So, this is me - sharing my health journey with all of you, one gluten-free meal at a time.
