Why we’re fans: If you’re at a loss for what to make this Memorial Day, Jules probably has some suggestions for you. Her blog lists recipe after recipe, from appetizers to desserts, while her popular holiday e-book proved that she has more than a few entertaining tips up her sleeves. Jules will even give you something to talk about: As co-founder of 1in133.org, she’s determined to make gluten-free food labeling part of everyday discussion.
Jules’ Story: I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1999 after being sick for 10 years, and being misdiagnosed with IBS.
According to Jules: The most unexpected part of going gluten-free was that I ended up leaving my job as a prosecuting attorney, and began writing books on living and baking gluten-free, traveling the country lecturing and teaching gluten-free baking classes, regularly appearing on TV and radio as a “guest chef,” and working as a blogger, consumer/gluten-free advocate, industry consultant and gluten-free food manufacturer! No way would I ever have expected my life would take those twists and turns! The best part though, is that I’ve met so many amazing people in my travels and my work as an author and gluten-free baking expert. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help them in some way. Our 1in133 event was another wonderful way of helping in our community – I look forward to continuing that work and to my next gluten-free adventure!
