From Celiac diagnosis to hosting Gluten Free Community Food Events, with Sara Hignell

Food intolerances are on the rise, with celiac disease and autoimmune diseases becoming a topic of discussion at many dinner tables. Sara Hignell sat down with me to talk about her now 20 years of experience with celiac, and how she is helping other gluten-free people enjoy the foods they love in a way that leaves them feeling good. 

Have a listen as Sara shares some of what she went through to be diagnosed, and how she began, and continues, to lead others to finding great gluten free alternatives to enjoy in and around the Waterloo Region. 

Sara and her partner Liz of the Gluten Free Collective are hosting the Gluten Free Fest on Sunday, Sept 17 at Bingemans. 

You can find out more about the event by visiting the, and learn more about Sara's mission to help as many gluten-free people find great local gluten free food by following along on Instagram and Facebook at the @theglutenfreecollective 

Sara mentions in the interview that blood testing for celiac is now covered by OHIP, so if you believe you may be celiac, the test is available for no cost to you in Ontario through your doctor. Other helpful food intolerance resources include naturopaths and nutritionists who can not only help you with diagnosing your food conditions, but help you manage them with consumption suggestions and supportive nutrition and other alternative modalities.
