The food you eat can be your best medicine.

When it comes to chronic illnesses like Celiac, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, the key to feeling well lies in the very food we eat. It doesn’t take a pill or a special treatment — we can get some or all of the symptoms under control by watching what we eat. And with food sensitivities like wheat, dairy or other food allergies, having a meal can seem like Russian Roulette. However, just because you have a limited diet does not mean you cannot eat well and savor the colors, flavors and textures of delicious food. It’s one of the reasons this very site exists, because we do not believe in limitations.

Life — and food — are meant to be enjoyed. Here’s what we’re savoring.

With one recipe and a little imagination, you can easily make a month’s worth of simple dinners.”
