About

Alexandra Martell  After a lot of careful research, I decided to try going gluten-free to see if it cures a non-life-threatening-yet-annoying autoimmune condition I have. This blog, once just a place for me to post recipes, is now  the home of my journey to my GF life, and a chronicle of what’s been happening since I made the switch.

When I’m not eating or looking for things to eat, I pass my time as the managing editor at Cosmopolitan.com. I also do a bit of freelance writing when I’m not watching an unhealthy amount of TV and movies.

Here are some other things I wrote, should you want to read them:
The Six Types of Coworkers No One Warns You About (Cosmo)
Do Curling Mascaras Actually Work? (Buzzfeed)
How to Save Money Without Leaving Your Laptop (Galtime)
A Lovely Little NYC Wedding (New York Weddings)
Last-minute Fixes for Bridal Beauty Freakouts (New York Weddings)
Top Chef recaps, musings on other TV shows, and lots of food roundups (Nymag.com)

Disclaimer time: I am not a medical professional and by no means should this blog be considered medical advice for anyone on or embarking on a gluten-free diet. I do not have a severe allergy or Celiac and am thus not too worried about cross-contamination. All writing is purely my experience and opinions. Always contact your doctor before making any major diet changes.

  1. Traveling does make being gluten-free harder but it’s still doable. I can certainly understand wanting to wait until after, however!

  2. I’m sad that I’m only now stumbling upon this blog, but I’m happy it has finally made its way into my life!!! I have been struggling with Celiac disease and other digestive conditions for about a year, which (as an avid food fanatic) has made my eating habits….interesting, to say the least. I love that you embrace the GF lifestyle and I just want to thank you for inspiring me to take charge of my condition and learn to love gluten-free!
