Welcome to Gluten Free Necessity!
I’m Jordan, the creator of Gluten Free Necessity. I was diagnosed with celiac disease in October of 2016 while in college (that was a fun time to be diagnosed) and have been living a gluten-free and mostly lactose-free diet out of necessity ever since.
I created this website to help others navigate the challenging gluten-free, dairy-free/lactose-free lifestyle.
My wife Sydney and I have learned a lot about being gluten-free from many people who were willing to teach us, and Gluten Free Necessity was born
I’m been very involved in the gluten-free community in other ways as well.
- Sydney and I volunteer gluten-free support group leaders with the Gluten Intolerance Group of North America, which gives us the opportunity to meet with and help our local gluten-free community.
- I’ve participated in one of the Gluten Intolerance Group’s virtual panel discussions about Navigating the Money Challenges of Eating Gluten-Free
- I was interviewed on the Celiac Project Podcast (episode 335) about my experience as a support group leader with the Gluten intolerance Group.
- I participated in a clinical trial for Celiac Disease, and got glutened!
