Ah, May. The trees are beginning to bloom, the tulips and daffodils begin to pop, and warm(er) weather hints that the worst of winter is now but a fading memory. It is also apropos that May just happens to be National Celiac Awareness month – since so many celiacs tend to view their diagnoses as a renewal or new beginning.
As many of you know May is National Celiac Awareness Month. While many of us champion awareness throughout the year, it is nice to have a designated month to help draw increased attention to our cause. This year I was once again invited to be part of the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) annual campaign of guest bloggers to get the word out over on the NFCA’s blog. This year’s theme is KISS – Keep it Simple and Safe and feature 16 bloggers talking about four main themes (one per week) with each day within those weeks having a specific focus.
