Yiasas everyone and welcome to my blog! I’m Christiana, a UK blogger born to a Greek father and a mother with roots as mixed as a tequila sunrise!
I started feeling really unwell after I graduated from University in 2010. I was always really tired, suffered regular dizzy spells and lost over half a stone in weight. I went back and forth to the doctors who conducted various checks such as thyroid problems and anaemia. After what seemed liked forever, it was suggested that I should get tested for coeliac disease. I was diagnosed with coeliac disease in September 2012.
I started on a strict gluten-free diet and very slowly, I began to feel better and was finally able to gain weight. When I was first diagnosed, the gluten free options were very limited and I hated going to the teeny tiny gluten free section in the supermarket. In my local area, there weren’t that many restaurants or cafés that provided gluten free options, so I always had to choose the safest foods that were least likely to make me ill or be contaminated with other foods. Fast forward a few years, and now we can’t get enough of Free From products!
In 2015, my blog The Gluten Free Greek was born! I had always wanted to start up a blog, and really wanted to help others by sharing my experiences and recipes. I also enjoy travelling to Greece (funnily enough) and like to document my food experiences along the way. So whether you are a coeliac starting your new gluten-free life or simply want to cut down on the amount of gluten in your diet, I hope that my blog will help you.
