Hi! I’m Tracey.

Welcome to noglutens! It’s great to have you here.

I’ve always had issues with food for as long as I can remember, however, my Coeliac Disease diagnosis did not come until after I had children.

I took a very long road to my diagnosis via the allergy and food intolerant avenue.

I got to a stage that I was required to take ventolin as I was having difficulties breathing after eating; daily use of topical hydrocortisone, Synacort, for my dermatitis; daily nose sprays of Rhinocort for hayfever like symptoms; anti-inflammatory tablets for aches and pains; migraine medication; blockers to prevent migraines, and way too much panadol and nurofen for someone with no apparent condition.

At my worst I spent 9 weeks in bed (in and out of hospital) which included a severe allergic reaction to pain medication.  Since this episode, I have been dairy and corn free.  I can only tolerate a very small amount starchy vegetables like white potatoes and peas and likewise only a little gluten free grains e.g. rice, sorghum, buckwheat, etc.  Hopefully, this will change in the future and I will be able to eat more gluten free grains (with the help of my gastroenterologist, dietitian and the support from my essential oils).

This blog is all about my lifestyle.  Living gluten free.  My posts are around food.  Some of my recipes do include dairy as I cater for my family who are not dairy or corn free.  Many recipes are converted recipes from my mum and grandmother.  My husband is also gluten free and our oldest daughter, Bella, is also on a strict gluten free diet.  Our youngest daughter, Char, is not gluten free but has allergies to artificial colours and food enhancers, so my recipes also only include naturally coloured products.

I also post about doTERRA essential oils, as they play a big part in my holistic side of my life along with my vitamins.  I am an independent wellness advocate for doTERRA essential oils (aka I sell them via a web selling page).  All products are sold via a web selling page using a credit card and sent directly to you, so no matter where you are in the world or what time it is, you can order doTERRA products through my web selling page.  If you would like to sell doTERRA products like me, then please join my NOGLUTENS Oily Team.  If you have any questions, email me.  You don’t have to be gluten free to be part of my oil team!
