    These T-Shirts are Raising Money for Celiac Disease Research

    Summertime calls for BBQs, dining out, brunch with friends, and more. Summer and food seem to be intertwined, but what can be a fun experience for most can be a daunting experience for those with food allergies. Meredith started the t-shirt brand Celiac Cutie to bring about fun, laughter and empowerment to those affected by an autoimmune disease, as well as other challenges. A portion of all t-shirt sales goes back to the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University, where she personally found help after her diagnosis. The Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University Medical Center is one of a few centers in the United States that provides comprehensive medical care, including nutrition, for adult and pediatric patients…

    Serious Snack Alert @Baresnacks

    They say an apple a day keeps the Dr away and I think apples are one of the most versatile fruits out there. I asked Janice why she loves apples so much and she said there are tons of variety, textures, sweetness, tartness and they are juicy and filling.   That’s good enough for me. But my confession is that I don’t know how to BITE an apple, my teeth are not strong and my mouth is small. I have to – have to! – eat apples, sliced and cored. Yes, I know.
