I attended a luncheon today that benefitted the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America, Rocky Mountain Chapter. This inspired me for the blog post today. It got me thinking about people {like me} that suffer from Inflammatory Bowel Diseases like Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s Disease, and who have to live on harsh medications and/or with a strict gluten-free diet.

I found this great website with delicious gluten free recipes. Just because some of us suffer with health issues, doesn’t mean we can’t eat delicious food with gluten free ingredients! More and more restaurants and grocery stores are catering to gluten free people – and that is a wonderful thing! I thought this recipe sounded yummy for fall. It has been 10 years since I have had mac & cheese (last time I did, I was sick for 3 days with intense pain and 103 fever – yikes!).
