Who am I?
Good question. I’m Kristina. A Behavior Analyst by day, a cooking lover, Pinterest obsessed, reality TV watching, pilates loving girl by night. Did I mention I have celiac disease? Yeah, I have celiac disease. It took me a while to be able to say those words. It’s been quite a rollercoaster ride over the past few years to say the least. I went from being sick in bed, to being in denial and still feeling sick while just going through the motions. How is it I change people’s behavior for a living, but couldn’t seem to change my own?!
Finally, one day I decided celiac disease was no longer going to have control over me and made a promise to change my diet and my life… while celebrating and embracing all that I’ve been given and start living each day to the fullest. That is how I developed MsModify.
In addition to changing my diet, I’ve had to modify every aspect of my life. Everything from my cosmetics to my vacations are different now. I’ve learned a lot by researching online, but mainly through trial and error.
In February 2016, I married my best friend Erik. Although he doesn’t have celiac, he is impacted by the illness through me. Our house is 100% gluten free and he choses to live a gluten free life in order to support me. I can’t imagine tackling life with anyone else!
You absolutely do not have to have celiac disease or be on a gluten free diet to enjoy my blog! I’m going to provide you with recipes that no one will ever know are gluten free! I would also love to share some of my favorite things and life with you!
Please stay awhile and let’s be friends!
