So, I guess I should introduce myself. My name is Marley. I’m a Canadian teacher, living in Bangkok. I’ve been here for a whole year now and feel that I have a pretty good grasp on the city and southeast Asia in general.
However, I have met some challenges. Firstly, I have Celiac Disease and only found out about 14 months ago. Living in the UK at the time, doctors diagnosed me with IBS and maintained that diagnosis for 3 years! They kept telling me to eat more whole wheat!
Finally, sick and feeling completely defeated, I went to a dietitian who asked me if I had ever been tested for wheat allergies or Celiac Disease. Lo and behold, she was right! Newly diagnosed and feeling empowered, I was ready to start my gluten free adventure…. except I was moving to Bangkok in a month’s time!
Back home in Canada, my friends and family tell me that gluten free food is everywhere and plentiful. However, in Thailand, it is not so easy to come by, thus my new blog. I hope you will enjoy my suggestions, travel stories and recipes.
