We are a culture obsessed with celebrities. Between social media platforms and shelves packed with glossy magazines, we’re overwhelmed with images of singers and actors whether we want to be or not. While some Hollywood races are acclaiming ‘gluten-free’ as a fad diet for weight loss and better skin, others actually have celiac disease.
Going gluten-free is very trendy, but some people have no choice. Maintaining a gluten-free diet is not an easy task. You constantly have to check the ingredients of food are a complete nuisance.
