Being gluten free is not always easy, but the health benefits from a diet that restricts gluten often outweigh the hardships that come along with the GF label. Two years ago, I found out that I had an allergy to gluten. I do not have Celiac’s disease, but the doctors informed me that gluten and I had to break up. In the beginning, the end of our long-lived relationship felt sad and difficult. I would look enviously upon people who delicately held a croissant in their hands or munched on a glorious piece of pizza. It seemed like everyone was taunting me with bagels, donuts, and my beloved Pop Tarts. At first I wanted to deny my divorce from gluten.

After exploring their story, I was immediately sold on WEDO and knew that I wanted to be a part of it. I’m really lucky that my college allowed me to take the month of January to intern for WEDO.
I first used WEDO Gluten Free Flour to make my mom’s famous mac and cheese. Her recipe is such a crowd pleaser, and I was definitely curious to see if the Banana Flour would make the mac and cheese taste a little banana-ish. However, I was incredibly happy to discover that it had no banana flavor and truly is an excellent flour substitute. It tasted just like the “gluten-ous
