Connecting with Your Gluten Free Community

Ever feel like you can’t identify, connect, or find other people that are gluten free? (I don’t feel like this as so many people are gluten free these days, but maybe in your area there are not as many people that are gluten free.)  Then you should join Gluten-Free Faces.  Gluten-Free faces is a global gluten free social media site.  There are a wide variety of opportunities available to the gluten free community on this site.

 

To start, make yourself a member.  Create your own account and page.  Next, it is important to join discussion pages.  The site even recommends that you introduce yourself to the online community.  These are the tips that they give.

 

  • When were you diagnosed with Celiac / How long have you been gluten-free?
  • How has the transition been for you?
  • What’s your favorite gluten-free food?
  • How did your friends and family react to hearing about your gluten intolerance?
  • How are you feeling today?
  • Anything else you can think of!

 

After that, it is time to explore the site.  You can check out the featured members as well as the thousands of other members that already have accounts on this social network.  You can even see a global map of the areas that gluten free members are located in.  You can click on your state and find other members that have created profiles from your state.  To add to this map, there is also a map on the site that allows you to find restaurants, hotels/resorts, cruise ships, and grocery stores around your area that accommodate gluten-free diets.

 

There is a forum to discuss the latest gluten free news, and blogs just to share your feelings or the newest products that you may have enjoyed or not have enjoyed.  Additionally, there is an extensive database of popular gluten free recipes.  Be sure to test some of these out when you get a chance.  This provides a great opportunity to try recipes that other people claim are good.  You can also chat directly with members on this site once you are a member.

 

Whether you are a new or old member to the gluten free community, this website offers a variety of opportunities for people to connect and to learn new things about the gluten free options and people around them.  I would certainly recommend checking out http://www.glutenfreefaces.com.

  1. Wow thats really cool, I didn’t realize there was a site dedicated to gluten-free people! It’s a nice way to connect with people to share your personal stories and if you’re newly gluten free its a nice way to see what foods are best!
