Wheat Free Mom

Carrie Adair

Carrie grew up with food allergies on a farm in rural Alberta with a family that baked fast and loose with butter and cream. Her family served dessert at every meal – literally. She first began mucking around with recipes in the kitchen to accommodate her children’s various allergies, as well as manage her husband’s diabetes. Her own diagnosis of Celiacs disease launched her into the world of blogging with a passion to help others navigate living gluten-free without having to give up the foods they loved. She looks forward to continuing to share her love of good food and family.
