The hardest thing about changing to a GF and DF lifestyle is rethinking all of the foods available to eat. Once many enjoyable options have been incorporated into a diet (and if symptoms begin to improve) the food sacrifices do not seem so horrible.

About This Site

We all need some help
This site was started by a woman with PCOS whose symptoms improved when removing both gluten and dairy from her diet. It wasn’t easy. She still craves pizza. She was looking for a one stop site to provide all the options she could eat and also links to research that explained her experience and symptoms.
