My name is Jessica, and I’m a NYC foodie who is in love with her very small kitchen. After being diagnosed with celiac disease in 2011, I was determined to make a positive change in my life and soon began whipping up delicious batches of gluten free cookies, breads, and cupcakes. Throughout my diagnosis, I found a great deal of support in the online gluten free community. Wanting to help make a difference, I became a celiac disease advocate and started my blog, Tasty Meditation: Tales from a Gluten Free Kitchen.

Here you’ll find discussions about hot topics in the celiac/gluten free world, small business shout-outs, recipes, NYC restaurant recommendations, interviews with chefs and restaurant owners, product reviews, giveaways, and general musings about living gluten free – I do it all with (hopefully) a little grace and humor. I’m a firm believer in science and celebrating small businesses that do gluten free the right way.

Over the years I’ve been very open about my autoimmune journey and have also become a Graves’ Disease advocate. I am currently working on a book about my (eventful? stressful? flat out crappy?) dive into my second autoimmune condition.

I am also an Organizer of the NYC Celiac Disease Meetup Group, the largest gluten free Meetup group in the world with over 2,700 members. We welcome all gluten free individuals, so feel free to stop by and learn about our next exciting event! www.meetup.com/Celiac/
