Celiac Disease

Cece has been diagnosed with Celiac disease which is an auto immune disease.  "Celiac disease is an autoimmune digestive disease that damages the villi of the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food. What does this mean? Essentially the body is attacking itself every time a person with celiac consumes gluten. "
 It has been tough going for her and she has had to strictly limit the types of food she eats.  At this point, even gluten free foods (ie baked  goods like bread) throw her system into an uproar!
 So, she is currently eating a plant based diet with a tiny bit of chicken here and there . If she does this, life is good.
