My celiac disease story

It took a long time to figure out what was wrong with my health. Year after year, I felt progressively worse, culminating in 2023, which was a particularly challenging year for me; the symptoms knocked me out for over half the year. Finally, doctors diagnosed me with celiac disease. Learning about my celiac disease was just the beginning of my journey back to health. Getting back to normal wasn’t a walk in the park. I went all-in on a gluten-free diet but didn’t see much change for months. The most surprising discovery? The ‘gluten-free’ oats I had been consuming every morning were actually triggering my symptoms, like traditional gluten-containing products. Once I cut out the oats, the change was insane. It was like night and day. I started feeling so much better in just a few days.

Now, why am I sharing this? Well, for two main reasons:

  • Reason 1: Not every doctor or nutritionist out there will tell you that some of us with celiac can’t stomach even gluten-free oats. Trust me, I learned that the hard way. If you feel like those oats might be messing with you, too, have a word with your doctor. For me, getting rid of those oats? Game changer.
  • Reason 2: I want you to know that every recipe on Steak Revolution is gluten-free. I know that it is super important, especially for the steak sides.
