I LOVE Jennifer Esposito. I was super sad when she left Blue Bloods, I just loved her sass. Anyways, she recently came out with a book telling her story about living with celiac disease titled Jennifer's Way: My Journey with Celiac Disease - What Doctors Don't Tell You and How You Can Learn to Live Again.
Jennifer grew up with chronic health issues and dealing with uneducated doctors who couldn't seem to help her get healthy. Once she was diagnosed with celiac disease, she decided to get educated so that she could help herself and others. What a babe. Since there is no cure for this disease, Jennifer had to change her lifestyle. She went gluten-free and has even opened a gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, peanut-free, allergy-friendly, organic bakery in NYC for her fellow man. Her book has already helped so many of the 1 in 133 American's who suffer from this disease so that they don't have to go through what Jennifer went through alone. She gives suggestions on recipes, books, and blogs that she uses. Jennifer's message of empowerment and advocating for your own needs will benefit anyone going through this struggle.
