Meet the Critics

Meet Galen
(aka: Pengiun, due to the avatar)


Hello! My name is Galen, I’m 33 years old, and born and raised in the Boston Area (specifically the suburbs). I have been following a gluten free diet for the past 6 years since I discovered my allergy. I am an avid foodie – I love to cook, and love to eat, so the news that I had a food allergy was initially devastating. However, with all challenges, we must rise and meet the struggle we face head-on – which is what I’ve been doing since that fateful day when I joined the legion of glutards.

Meet Jen
(aka: Hennifer Lopez)


Good morning, afternoon, evening, whatever time, My name is Jen and I’m a friend of Galen’s from school. I’ll be posting here as a newbie to the Gluten-free community, at least for the next thirty days. I don’t have a gluten allergy or sensitivity. I’m doing the purely for the purpose of this blog. Having said that I’m a self-proclaimed bread addict. My main food groups are meat, potatoes, pasta and bread….oh and chocolate, always chocolate. I know, I’m a really healthy eater, which was also a factor for me embarking on this voyage. After reading my diet you’re probably wondering why I would do this to myself when I don’t actually need to restrict my diet.  Well, the short answer is, Galen. I also want to prove to myself that I can do this, but if I slip if, I’ll tell you, I’m going, to be honest.
