Resources for Teens
Casey Cromwell is the creator of Casey the College Celiac, a blog that explores life in college (and now grad school) with celiac disease. She began her blog at age 16 after she was diagnosed with celiac disease and couldn't find a lot of information about eating gluten free in college. Since then, her blog has expanded from practical tips about going to college on a gluten free diet to also including gluten free, vegan and paleo recipes, restaurant and product reviews, and topics related to general health and wellness. Her goal is to put a positive spin on living with chronic illness, whether it's by writing a humorous blog post about "eight hilariously accurate reasons to date someone with celiac disease" to sharing how going gluten free has changed her life for the better. Besides her website, you can find Casey on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter!
