It's May, and you know what that means. It's Celiac Awareness Month.
This is my third awareness month since being diagnosed with celiac disease, and I think a lot of progress has been made in educating food preparers about the disease and the need for the gluten-free diet.
The National Foundation for Celiac Awareness is starting a campaign this month called "Fuel the Family." Celiac disease is a genetic disorder so if you have it, there's a good chance that other members of your family have it (although it's not a guarantee).
The NFCA's program is encouraging family members of celiacs to get tested to see if they may have it also.
