Welcome to My Gluten Free Miami, a site formed to help you navigate through all things Gluten Free in South Florida. While there are many things on this website that will interest anyone who is gluten-free, being gluten-free in Miami has been a bit more difficult than in many other cities I have traveled to. Our culture is very different. The reaction when you tell your Peruvian in-laws you cannot eat bread is priceless. In compiling My Gluten Free Miami I hope to help navigate the gluten-free lifestyle in a heavily Hispanic Culture. Offering recipes, tip, and tricks for living Gluten Free in Miami.

My journey with the gluten-free lifestyle began almost two years ago. I will never forget that phone call. I had heard of Celiac Disease once or twice, but did not know much about it. My initial trip to the doctor had been a pain under the right side of my rib cage, the thought of Celiac had never crossed my mind. The initial diagnoses from the doctor had been gall bladder issues, I didn’t know how we had gone from getting my gall bladder removed, to a life-long auto-immune disease.

Transitioning to a gluten-free lifestyle has been challenging, but it has been worth it. Headaches that I had for ages have lessened, a skin rash that had plagued me since high-school is gone. It is not easy, I still get a little jealous of people who can just order a pizza for dinner, but it has been worth it. I hope through following this website you discover ways to make living a gluten free lifestyle simple, and delicious!

  3. Hi Amanda,
    Great blog! I run the gluten free support group for Miami, check us out on Facebook under Gluten Free South Florida. We also have a list serv through yahoo groups https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/GlutenFreeSouthFlorida/info where we post local and national information on celiac disease and gluten free products.
    Both sites are free to join and open to the community looking for resources on how to live a gluten free lifestyle in South Florida.
    I was wondering if you would be interested in being a guest speaker at one of our upcoming meetings? Your blog post are great. We meet the first Monday of every month at 7pm at Baptist Hospital. I’m sorry to hear your doctor didn’t refer you to the group when you were first diagnosed. We would love to have you attend a meeting. Hope to hear from you.
    Kind regards,
