Celebrate May with nutritious and delicious recipes and links you’ll love!

Happy May everyone! We’re starting the first week of May with 70-80 degree weather here in NY! So happy it’s finally nice out. Now if only this darn cold would go away  😕

There’s a lot to celebrate in May: National Celiac Awareness Month, Cinco de Mayo, International No Diet Day, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Osteoporosis Prevention Month, and more! We will be celebrating some of these special occasions on the blog, starting with celiac awareness.

Celebrate National Celiac Awareness Month by dining out stress free with these tips from Nicole Cogan at NOBREAD.com

In case you missed it, this past Saturday Nicole Cogan of NOBREAD.com shared a guest post with us about dining out gluten free without the stress. Personally I am very grateful that no one in my family has celiac or any food allergies/intolerances for that matter, but as more people are identifying a negative reaction to gluten, these are important tips to keep in mind.

Look for more celiac awareness tips and information in the Link Love below, where you’ll also find some Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day inspiration. And be sure to check back later this week when I’ll be sharing a special recipe in honor of osteoporosis prevention.
