Hello - I'm Erica from Celiac and the Beast! I named this blog Celiac and the Beast because I’ve always loved Disney movies – and Belle was my favorite (don’t tell Ariel that). She was smart, kind, and looked past people’s appearances to what really mattered. Like Belle – I’ve learned to live with the Beast (the disease/wheat, etc.), but unlike Belle I will probably never learn to love it (hello Stockholm Syndrome much?). I love being an advocate for celiac disease and other gluten-related disorders - I even wrote a book about it!
I’m a Patient Leader
