Comment policy

One of the things I love about the internet is that it provides such a great platform for discussing ideas with individuals of various backgrounds!  However, we’ve all seen those comment threads where people tear each other apart.  *Warning—mom voice ahead*  On this blog, you will be kind and encouraging.  Some of my readers are just curious about what it means to be gluten-free, others have been living like this for years, and others have recently discovered their way of life is going to change.  Have grace with one another.  I will step in and delete comments if necessary, but I hope I will not have to.


I care about my readers, and it’s my goal to provide you with quality content with the hope of generating a small profit so I can continue to provide content that you care about.
