BeBopAlu Launches Website

Posted by Judith Alu on

BeBopAlu Website Launched in Time for Celiac Awareness Month!

It seems fitting that our BeBopAlu website http://www.bebopalu.com is launched just in time for Celiac Awareness Month.  In the seven years since my son was diagnosed, I am amazed at the increased awareness about Celiac Disease, gluten-intolerance and other autoimmune diseases.  It’s wonderful that so many more restaurants have gluten-free menus, that I can get gluten-free pizza from a half dozen places within a 5-mile span of my home, that more products are visibly labelled “gluten-free ”and that I don’t have to solve the mystery of whether “modified food starch” contains gluten quite as often as I used to. 

But we have a LONG way to go.  There is no known cure – other than a gluten-free diet.  Too many restaurants are happy to charge more for their gluten-free items but seem annoyed when you explain you have Celiac and ask them to ensure the gluten-free food is prepared correctly. 

It is my hope that more gluten-free versions of favorite foods increasingly become available.  Most of all, I hope that people without Celiac or gluten-sensitivity become more aware and therefore, more accommodating to those with who must eat gluten-free.  Maybe they’ll see it’s actually pretty easy to provide a gluten-free option similar to what everyone else is eating.  And, it’s OKAY to ask questions if you’re not sure.

With Celiac Awareness Month almost here, I hope that I can personally continue to increase awareness about Celiac.   Just because people have to eat gluten-free doesn’t mean they all like the same things to eat.  I hope that by offering many gluten-free choices for our themed BeBopAlu Boxes, gluten-free foodies get to choose exactly what they want!
