Hello There,

I am so glad that you are here and I am so glad that I am here! Welcome to the Gluten Free You and Me Podcast! Where we learn to navigate and simplify our lives in this gluten filled world.

My name is Coral Ward and I am the founder of Gluten Free With Coral. I started our Gluten Free/Celiac Journey about 7 years ago when my 2 year old daughter Chanelle was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease. Since her diagnosis my youngest daughter Sadie and I have both been diagnosed. That means 3 out of 5 of our family members have Celiac Disease.

I live a 100% gluten free lifestyle and I have to tell you that I have come to I love it! I have come to realize that I am happier and healthier than I have ever been. After years of suffering, I now have learned to listen to my body, be strong in my will power and not let gluten free living control my life or more importantly my mind.

It hasn’t always been easy, I remember the first time I walked into the grocery store and after 3 1/2 hours I left the store with only 2 things in my cart. Crying the entire way home… I quickly realized that I just needed to find my gluten free groove and fast. In this podcast I will be sharing exactly HOW I came to find my groove and in the process created an educational gaming app, a cookbook, the Celiac Coach eCourse, countless webinars and a strong presence on social media.

For the past year I’ve been having this crazy feeling that I just can’t seem to shake, the feeling that I needed to share my voice, share my stories and share my hope with all of you In a deeper and more intimate way. And that is what has inspired me to start this podcast. And I am more pumped than ever to share my greatest gems with all of you!

I will be featuring and interviewing incredible people, organizations and brands that are making our gluten free world just that much better. We will be talking about things that really matter. The day to day living and situations that we can learn and overcome together.

Wether YOU have celiac disease, someone you love does or you eat gluten free for any reason, this is the podcast that will motivate, inspire and teach you the ways without losing your mind!

My hope here with the Gluten Free You and Me Podcast, is that every time you finish an episode- you will leave feeling more informed, positive, uplifted, and inspired to overcome any obstacles you are facing and know that you are not alone in this journey.

I am so pumped to share with you who I chose to interview as my very first guest for
One of the key elements to finding your groove as a celiac is finding safe foods to eat. I mean really,
Who can you trust?
What restaurants can you go to?
What foods can you buy in the store?
In a perfect world we would all eat whole foods and shop the ‘outside isles of the stores’. But my reality is I have 4 kids and a husband to feed all while working part time out of the house and working 3 businesses from my home. So, no I can not make everything from scratch. I truly believe we need balance in life. Even balance in our food. And I try my best to do just that.
So back to my questions… really what foods can we trust? This is what I wanted to get to the bottom of. So many companies label their food as Gluten Free, but truly they are not safe for a celiac. The FDA states:
'How is “gluten-free” defined in the rule? In general, foods may be labeled “gluten-free” if they meet the definition and otherwise comply with the final rule’s requirements. More specifically, the final rule defines "gluten-free" as meaning that the food either is inherently gluten free; or does not contain an ingredient that is: 1) a gluten-containing grain (e.g., spelt wheat); 2) derived from a gluten-containing grain that has not been processed to remove gluten (e.g., wheat flour); or 3) derived from a gluten-containing grain that has been processed to remove gluten (e.g., wheat starch), if the use of that ingredient results in the presence of 20 parts per million (ppm) or more gluten in the food. Also, any unavoidable presence of gluten in the food must be less than 20 ppm.
But then I asked myself… okay that’s great, but who is regulating these standards and how can I truly test the honesty and integrity of a brand? For years, I have been searching for answers... and I finally have found answers as I have gone straight to a reputable source. After you listen to this podcast with Chris Rich, who is the VP of Marketing & Development at the Gluten Intolerance Group, I believe you will find the same peace and assurance that I have.
I can now, confidently say that I trust the Certified Gluten Free Label from the Gluten Intolerance Group!
This label means it has 10 PPM or less of gluten.
This is the label from the Gluten Intolerance Group
With thousands of products and all items less than 10 ppm, I truly trust in the organization GIG/ GFCO. Click here to see their most up to date list of certified gluten free items and brands.
One of my favorite things that I learned in this interview is that the majority of the staff either have celiac disease themselves or have first degree relatives. They are not looking for more transactions, they are looking to certify more brands that they themselves can trust to eat as well. Doesn’t that make a difference to you? It sure does to me.
