How to Be Gluten Free with Gluten Free Bebe


Melinda Arcara, AKA Gluten Free Bebe, is the youngest of ten children. Her father nicknamed her Bebe since she was the littlest of the bunch. The first forty years of her life were filled with unexplained symptoms, including migraines, stomach pains, anemia, infertility, anxiety, weight fluctuations, joint pain, sinus pain, bladder infections. In 2009 she was finally diagnosed with gluten intolerance, and over the last 10 years, she was told she shouldn't be tested for Celiac disease because she wasn't eating gluten. 


When she was diagnosed with gluten-intolerance, she was told to "Google" the topic and figure it out. Ten years ago, there wasn't much out there as far as gluten-free information or products, and not many restaurants prepared food safely. Last year, after six months of nutritional deficiency symptoms, she was tested for Celiac with a positive result. Having a Celiac diagnosis is a blessing, as she finally has an answer to years of unexpected illnesses and pain.


"I like to think that I am the practical side of being gluten-free. My husband is Celiac, but our two children are not. We say we are a "Gluten-Free, Gluten-Full" home."


Melinda is a Certified Health Coach that focuses on keeping balance with pre-packaged gluten-free products. Bebe encourages creating healthy food choices. She wrote her book, 3 Steps to Gluten-Free Living, to help others adhere to a medically required gluten-free diet. Her book is meant to save people time and money and help newly diagnosed Celiac patients learn what gluten is, where it's found, and how to read labels. 


Listen in as she talks about how you can live a better gluten-free life with the advice and important information in her book about how to successfully be gluten-free!
