Tomorrow, September 13th is National Celiac Disease Awareness Day. An informal web search indicates the color for Celiac Support is green. Lance Armstrong’s tribulations have tarnished wristbands as a statement, but they’re available for Celiac Support if it’s a fashion direction one wants to pursue.
My advice: bake something special for yourself, your family, schoolmates, or co-workers. Whether you’re living with Celiac Disease, know someone who is, or you just have an interest in alternative diets and want to explore a gluten-free lifestyle, everyone will appreciate and/or be intrigued by the effort you make.
Chocolate Chip Cookies are universally popular. Mix a batch of batter tonight, get up early to bake cookies tomorrow, and prepare to be praised, perhaps even embraced by those with whom you share them.
I wanted the title of this to be “Celiacs Are People Too”, but Gus is no more a “Celiac” than he is a “Diabetic”. I refuse to define him as a disease; he’s a young man living with Celiac Disease and Diabetes. I’m going to urge him to get a dozen GF cupcakes from Kara’s to share with friends before he takes off for Australia tomorrow evening. What a way to celebrate National Celiac Disease Awareness Day!
