Jenna Drew
Jenna Drew

Jenna Drew is a passionate advocate for Celiac Disease, the gluten free lifestyle and real food transformations, and has traveled over 10,000 miles for Celiac Awareness.

The National Foundation of Celiac Awareness named her “Celiac Awareness All-Star” after hosting the first Celiac Awareness Day with the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team. As the go-to person for Celiac and digestive issues, Jenna has been invited to speak all around the U.S. at events like the Expo East, Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly (GFAF) Wellness Events, Celebrate Celiac, Living Without’s Gluten Free Food Allergy Fest and the GFAF Expo.

Even after eating gluten free for years however, Jenna was still exhausted all the time and experienced bloating that never seemed to go away. On top of Celiac Disease, she also has asthma that stems from chronic inflammation. She was tired of relying on my inhaler and having low energy all the time – it was time to take control of my struggling health.

Through research she discovered the many ways the body works and how mindset plays a role in our health. As a Certified Mind Body Fitness Coach and Essential Oil Expert, she helps her clients “Get that Gluten Free Glow” and transform their lives through lifestyle coaching and natural solutions like essential oils and real foods.

She invites you to grab her brand new eBook Love Your Gut: 3 Essential Steps to a Healthier Gut (it’s free!) at JennaDrew.com that includes exclusive tips and recipes I only share with my gluten free community.

Tiffany HInton
Tiffany Hinton

As an adult with health issues, Tiffany learned she was gluten and lactose
intolerant. This turned her life upside down. Not knowing where to start
she found pre-made gluten free items overpriced and she still wanted to
eat family favorites. Experimenting in the kitchen began with research and
practice. Tiffany can now turn any desirable recipe into gluten and dairy
free, without sacrificing the taste. Tiffany started blogging in June of
2010, while going through treatments for infertility. Like many others;
she struggled to talk about her experience, leading to an online journal
for sharing emotions and heart. Following the birth of her first child she
began to share gluten free substitutes for her favorite family recipes on
her blog GFmomcertified.com. After three children in just three years,
gluten free cooking has become a necessity. Discovering she was not alone
in the challenge to feed a gluten free family, opened the path to writing
Gluten Free Mom Certified. She creates and shares GF recipes each week on
her blog to help GF mothers meet the challenge of GF cooking. Tiffany’s
mission persists today to re-create the foods she grew up eating, into
gluten and dairy free.
