There are dozens (hundreds?!) of great gluten-free bloggers, all with insightful, valuable opinions on living gluten-free. I love discovering new GF bloggers and adding them to my list of blogs to check on a regular basis. Since time is so valuable and we only have so much of it, I thought I’d help out and give you a quick list of five of my favorite gluten-free bloggers that are a little different than the traditional ones.
Here are five gluten-free bloggers that are always interesting and offer an unique view on the GF lifestyle:
1) The Gluten Dude – I first discovered the Gluten Dude when I landed on his rant on celebs going gluten-free (namely Channing Tatum) and how hard that makes things for people who have to be gluten-free due to celiac disease and gluten intolerance. It was a very honest and humorous article and I immediately bookmarked his site for future viewing. His articles are always full of emotion and cover a wide variety of topics important for gluten-free people to read and discuss. There is NO sugar coating on The Gluten Dude’s site; get ready for lots of in-your-face honesty!
2) Seamaiden from Book of Yum – “Sea” is the creator of the popular “Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger” series, where gluten free bloggers choose another blogger who they admire and then cook one of their recipes and write a post on it. I have been following the Book of Yum for some time now, but I haven’t gotten around to participating in one. Soon, I hope. In addition to the the Adopt a GF Blogger series, she also blogs about her exotic travels and posts amazingly creative gluten-free recipes like this quinoa rice vegetable sushi recipe and arugula herb gnocchi.
3) Taylor Miller from GlutenAway – Taylor is different from most gluten-free bloggers for one major reason: he is only 15 and still in high school! He frequently blogs about the difficulties of being a celiac while being in high school. I didn’t find out I was gluten intolerant until I was 24, so I can only imagine how tough it must be for kids Taylor’s age growing up in such a gluten-filled world. Taylor recently started a Paleo diet and all of his recipes of late are Paleo. Taylor enjoys being an advocate and educating parents, teens, and kids about the gluten-free lifestyle.
4) Sarah Howells from The Gluten Free Blogger – My first interaction with Sarah was in 2012 when I published a guest post on her site, and she returned the favor this year with a delicious smoky bacon and lentil soup recipe on This Gluten-Free Life. She is located in the UK and updates her blog frequently with amazing GF recipes. Don’t forget to bookmark her website!
5) Alyssa from Queen of Quinoa – Quinoa is one of the favorite grains of gluten-free eaters, since it is so versatile and many of the other grains are off limits. You really have no idea how many different recipes can possibly feature quinoa until you visit Queen of Quinoa. Alyssa has quinoa snack recipes like crispy quinoa treats and honey blueberry quinoa granola bars and main courses such as quinoa meatloaf and almond & quinoa crusted chicken. There are also quite a few GF recipes that do not use quinoa, but the majority do.
I hope everyone checked out all of these websites and bookmarked them for future use. They are all updated regularly and feature some of the best content available in the gluten-free community!
