Gluten Free Sage is a weekly lifestyle blog that promotes healthy food, healthful lifestyle, mindfulness and minimalism. I believe that one cannot achieve or maintain wellness eating food that is not healthy. I am a strong advocate for those living with celiac disease and gluten intolerance and believe there is a need for education around the gluten-free diet. I also believe that each of us longs for artful experiences and use photography, poetry, design, inspirational quotes and recipes to educate and delight. We need to be well and inspired to help us become the best, most beautiful versions of ourselves that we can be.

Reexamine All You Have Been Told

When you feel really good, you’re almost afraid to talk about it, like you’ll jinx it. It takes great effort to maintain wellness, and you cherish this place with a strong reverence. Health is sacred. There are so many souls—both with and without food-related illnesses—that don’t feel well. And if you’re young or one of… Read More

Your Vibe Attracts Your Tribe

My mom Annabelle, who is now 82 years old, was an only child who lost both of her parents at a fairly young age. She showed me what it takes to be tough, smart, kind, and to never give up. However, the biggest thing she probably taught me is that your vibe attracts your tribe.… Read More

Make Your Own 7-Minute Workout

I recently came across this New York Times article titled “Can’t Do the 7-Minute Workout? Neither Can I.” It’s a good article, but I was immediately put-off by the title. I wondered why. It bothered me because I feel it gives the message that it’s OK if you can’t do a 7-minute workout. With our… Read More

Catalyst for Happiness

Last month, I visited Washington DC. DC always intrigues me—with its incredible rich history, architectural and natural beauty, tall gorgeous trees and great hiking trails. I visited the United States Naval Academy, ate a box lunch on the Severn River, walked through exquisite buildings and Spring gardens, ate breakfast and dinner at National Harbor, and… Read More

healthy workaholic don't you know yet rumi quote design light that lights the worlds

Can You Be a Healthy Workaholic?

Can you be a healthy workaholic? Yes… but it requires grace. There’s a lot of negativity around the word “workaholic”. It’s often used inaccurately to describe someone who simply loves the work that they do and is dedicated to their big picture vision. I admit I’ve been a diligent, focused workaholic. I’m proud of it.… Read More

The Vintage Spatula

When traveling and I tell people that I’m searching for the perfect vintage spatula, they look at me a little funny. It’s a great topic. You’re only as good as your bow and arrow, right? That’s why I like a classic cast iron skillet (or wok) and a spatula that can stand the test of… Read More

Tendership

Tendership is a word I made up myself. It describes a tender friendship that brings soulful wellness. I recently read a BBC article a friend shared on Facebook about words taken from other countries that have no direct English equivalent, but represent very precise emotions that are neglected in our language. It talks about “emotion… Read More

Sweet As Tupelo Honey & Good As Gold

Light gray with a touch of yellow… that’s the color that surrounds you after a hurricane visits, then leaves. Branches down, bits of grass stuck to your windshield and car doors; everything is weathered like two years have passed and it was just 24 hours. When the sun comes out again after a big storm,… Read More
