Whether you’re a newbie to a gluten-free diet or you’re an old pro, it’s kind of funny how everyone’s journey is somewhat similar.
I’m not going to lie – when you first choose to go gluten-free, it can be insanely overwhelming. You’ve heard so much about it. You’ve seen the gluten-free foods on the shelf at the grocery store. You’ve probably heard your friends or co-workers talk about it.
