National Celiac Disease Awareness Month {Resources} + 31 Days of May Awareness {Printable Calendar} + Schedule of Events

May is National Celiac Disease Awareness Month and to start off I want to share some resources plus give you the 31 Days of May Awareness printable calendar. I also want to share the schedule I have planned for mindful peace om to bring awareness to Celiac Disease and Gluten Intolerance. I have been living gluten free for two years and it has been a great journey filled with learning and less trips to the bathroom! Share this post with others so that they too can learn or have a refresher not only about Celiac Disease but also Gluten Intolerance overall!

31 Days of May Awareness Printable Calendar

The calendar has activities for overall awareness as well as activities to bring yourself awareness about Gluten Intolerance. I believe that change and awareness starts with ourselves. Once we have achieved the level of awareness we desire, we are then able to extend our experience and information to others. Do this responsibly and respectfully.
