This recipe for happiness is perfect year round but I share it during the holiday season to remind myself to be happy and to share that happiness.

The holiday season is filled with land mines for people living on a restricted diet. It takes effort, resilience, patience and resolve but celiacs are doing it with joy and happiness.

I know many people who have figured out how to navigate the holiday season in their own way. They eat well, plan ahead, socialize and make smart choices all along the way.

The holiday season can be crazy busy. We accept too many invitations and take on too many tasks just so we don’t miss out. I hope you’ll take a moment to pause and think about what truly makes you happy.

Making cookies makes me happy, taking pictures of them makes Jim happy.
