Empowered Kids Making a Difference

In our newspaper this morning, there was a story about a young man who created his own website. This young man, only 18 years old, decided to create this website because he has celiac disease. This made it necessary for him to cut from his diet anything with wheat, barley and malt products. Since he's also vegetarian, this presented unique challenges. So he thought that a site that catered to vegetarians and vegans with celiac disease was something that was needed. He recognized a need, then identified a way to address that need - and for this, he is to be commended.

The site,, serves as a spot for people to share recipes and discuss other issues involved in living with celiac disease. It's a very professional looking site of which this young man should be very proud. Check it out and see for yourself.
