Living Gluten-free: Sarah's Story

Hi! I’m Sarah. I met Pooja when we were classmates at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris in 2008.
In Paris, I lived on bread. As a poor student there were times when I was barely able to pay my rent, let alone buy groceries, so I lived on baguettes, which sell in Paris’ patisseries for 1 euro a piece.
Two years later, I said goodbye to bread and have never looked back.
In October 2010, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, an auto-immune disorder of the small intestine. People with Celiac Disease cannot process gluten, the protein in wheat, rye and barley, and must adhere to a strict gluten-free diet. Before my diagnosis, I steadily became sicker and sicker while doctors searched for a diagnosis.
I’m among more than 2 million Americans (and many more around the world) who have Celiac Disease. My diagnosis changed my life. 
At first, it felt devastating – what was I going to eat? I can’t eat things like pizza, pasta, and pastries, but I also have to avoid less obvious sources of gluten, like soy sauce, salsa and even some kinds of toothpaste! I started reading labels, querying waiters about a dish’s preparation and began making old recipes with new substitutions. Eating gluten-free can be frustrating and at times, inconvenient. But for everything I’ve had to given up, I’ve discovered new favorites. I also appreciate that I really know what I’m eating – down to every last ingredient! Eating gluten-free, I’m healthier and happier than I’ve ever been.
I was so thrilled when I visited Le 15 this spring and discovered that Pooja’s macaroons (among other treats!) are gluten-free! Going gluten-free, you have to give up a lot, but thank goodness you don’t have to give up macaroons!
