My husband and I had two allergic daughters ages 6 and 4, who were covered in eczema, usually sneezing, rubbing their noses, and very irritable. On average, they woke up 6 times at night crying, scratching, and restless. Needless to say, our kids who fluctuated between blank stares and tantrums were not at their best. Something was seriously wrong and I was on a quest to find out what it was.

Upon the advice of a friend, I put the girls on an elimination diet to see if food might be the culprit and after four days of eliminating 11 of the most common allergens, voila; we had calm focused kids. It was a miracle. Each day, I added back one food at a time and on the day that I reintroduced wheat, their bodies were once again a mess. The girls were allergic to other foods, too (corn, dairy, artificial food coloring, BHT, and several other preservatives), but it was gluten (wheat, barley, and rye products) that irritated their systems most.

On a whim, I went on a gluten-free diet myself and was equally surprised with the positive results. My irritability and anxiety disappeared; my painful arthritis vanished, and my husband looked a lot better (if the light was just right). We all began to have a good night’s sleep. Needless to say, we’ve been eating gluten-free since 1996. It wasn’t until the spring of 2010, however, after extensive testing that our family physician diagnosed the three of us with Celiac Disease.

I got used to cooking gluten-free meals but the one item we craved was bread. The gluten-free bread products out there were typically hard, dense, dry, and crumbly. Some companies got the taste right, but no one had a wholesome loaf with a good texture, and so I began to bake bread. Each week, my family gave me helpful suggestions and the next week, I started afresh. FINALLY, after eight years of experimentation, I was thrilled with the results. What makes our buckwheat bread different than anything out there is its texture. It’s soft, flexible, tasty, and organically wholesome, perfect for sandwiches, french toast, dinner rolls, and sandwich buns.
