Celebrities who are gluten-free

I thought it would be fun to see what celebrities are out there who are also suffering from celiac disease, gluten allergies or intolerance to wheat.  Here are some of the interesting ones I found besides the obvious Elizabeth Hasselback who has chronicled her struggles with celiac disease:

  Ryan Phillippe – He has talked about having difficulty digesting wheat.

 Chelsea Clinton – She has a gluten allergy and had a  a gluten-free wedding cake at her reception.

  Zooey Deschanel – You can see her on the “New Girl” Tuesdays at 9PM EST on Fox, but   Zooey also suffers from a gluten allergy.

 Drew Brees – Who Dat?  Arguable one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL right now, Drew  Brees can tolerate taking hits on the field, but can’t tolerate gluten.

 Rachel Weisz – This British actress also has an intolerance for wheat.

 Novak Djokovic – His nutitionist discovered he had an allergy to  gluten,   but that didn’t stop him from winning 3 of 4 Grand Slams.

So you see we are not alone in our battle with gluten.  Many suffer from some sort of aversion to gluten, but the key is to have a positive attitude and the knowledge to know what to avoid to stay healthy and happy!
