About me

Occupation Software Engineer
Location Minnesota, United States
Introduction I am retired AND I am severely gluten-sensitive. I retired July 31, 2009 after almost 30 years in Information Technology. - After discovering that I cannot eat anything containing wheat-gluten in 2006, I am learning new ways to make meals. Whole grains are now a part of my food list more than ever before. - - - - - - - Baking has always been enjoyable to me. I am really enjoying converting or creating new gluten free goodies. Gluten free baking ingredients can be very expensive. Some cost cutting can be achieved by grinding your own nut flours as needed because they tend to be used less than others. My new goal is to compile an illustrated gluten-free cookbook. - - - - - - I hope to also show that not all gluten-intolerant people are under-weight, young or of obvious European Descent. There are many of us ‘baby boomers’ ‘senior citizens’ ‘over-weight’ or ‘old people’ who have severe reactions to gluten! .- - - - - - - Hopefully diagnosis will be made earlier so that no one suffers the related auto-immune diseases that seem to follow pattern from non-absorption of necessary nutrients.
