Cherie Lyden, Owner Of Wholegreen Bakery
A Gluten Free Podcast Episode 29My guest on today’s podcast is owner of Wholegreen Bakery, Cherie Lyden. We’ll talk about her nutritionist background, her daughter and herself being diagnosed with coeliac disease and how this inspired her to open a 100 % gluten free bakery and expand the business into what it is today. When Cherie Lyden and her youngest daughter were diagnosed as coeliac in 2014, she looked around and couldn’t find really great gluten-free food. It was all overly sweet, often packed with additives or just plain ‘yuk’, as her five-year-old would tell her. So Cherie decided to make her own. With a background as a nutritionist and foodie, Cherie was able to develop recipes that were not only gluten-free and delicious, but also healthy, with less sugar and zero additives, and made using fresh, seasonal produce. Since then Cherie’s passion project has evolved into an award-winning bakery and café renowned for producing food that’s first and foremost delicious, as well as being 100% gluten-free.LinksWholegreen Bakery Website Follow Wholegreen Bakery on Instagram Get in touchYou can find me on Instagram @a.gffamily or send an email to aglutenfreefamily@gmail.com You can also find me writing a regular column for The Australian Coeliac magazine under the title 'Gluten Free Dad' released quarterly for Coeliac Australia members.

Elikqitie, Host Of Travel Gluten Free Podcast
A Gluten Free PodcastEpisode 20Learn How to Travel Gluten Free with ElikqitieElikqitie is the creator of the Travel Gluten Free podcast. We'll talk about how her gluten-free story began, why she started her podcast, and how she found out that she and her daughter would need to be gluten-free. She also speaks about how she overcame the challenges of being diagnosed with Celiac disease, making all her favorite foods gluten-free, what she does to accommodate her daughter, Aliyah, who also has Celiac disease, and how she creates her personalized translation cards for gluten-free travel.Why Elikqitie Started Travel Gluten FreeWhile on a three-week gluten-free road trip after finding out that she couldn't eat gluten-free, Elikqitie realized that she could easily ruin a week of her vacation if she were to get sick while traveling alone. She looked around on the internet to find information on how to travel gluten-free and realized that no one was primarily speaking or teaching about how to travel if you have Celiac disease. So, after talking to a friend who had his own podcast, she decided to start Travel Gluten Free. Later, she added a gluten-free travel blog and wrote her book, The Guide to Traveling Gluten Free, based on her podcast.Using America's Medical System when You Have Celiac DiseaseAmerica has a privatized healthcare system, which means that residents and citizens do not have subsidized medical care. So if you can't afford the expensive health insurance, ranging from $500 to $1500 a month for a family of four, you have to pay out-of-pocket for your care. Even with good medical insurance, Elikqitie typically spends USD 5000 a year for her medical costs.How to Be Successful with Your Diet while Having Celiac DiseaseElikqitie says that one of the keys to being successful on a gluten-free diet is searching for or finding out how to make your favorite foods gluten-free. When you have what you like to eat, you are much less likely to cheat on your gluten-free diet, and you'll have a better outlook on living with Celiac disease.Tips on Traveling Gluten FreeShe gives some great tips on traveling gluten-free, such as why you shouldn't assume all chain restaurants are the same in different countries, why she tells servers at restaurants that she has a "gluten allergy" when she's eating out, and how she orders out safely eating gluten-free at restaurants.Listen in to find out which cities and countries are best to travel to when you're gluten-free, why you'll want to go on a cruise for your vacation if you're a gluten-free traveler, and why we both love podcasting about gluten-free!Podcast ResourcesVisit Travel Gluten Free Podcast on the webFollow Travel Gluten Free on InstagramJoin Our Gluten Free Family!Reach out to us via email: aglutenfreefamily@gmail.comA Gluten Free Family on InstagramShow notes for this episode have been crafted by Write For You.

IBS is a very common gut problem with symptoms including abdominal (tummy) pain, bloating, wind (farting) and changes in bowel habit (diarrhea, constipation or both).
