Hi, I’m Jenny Finke. I’ve been gluten-free since April 2012 when I was diagnosed with celiac disease (read about my celiac disease story here). While it was a relief to know my painful bloating would soon come to an end, I was overwhelmed by the process of going gluten-free and how difficult that first year would be physically and emotionally.
Over the years, I’ve grown into my role as a gluten-free “expert” of sorts. I’ve spent a lot of time focused on healing from celiac disease, something that is grossly overlooked by most celiacs. (I’m proud to say that I have healed from celiac disease and put my celiac disease symptoms into remission!) I’ve learned to be a better, more confident home cook, and I now know what gluten-free products I like and which ones I most definitely will avoid. I know how to eat in a way that keeps me healthy, and I have a better overall relationship with food.
I wanted to share my story and help others – hence the birth of a gluten-free food blog and journey known as Good For You Gluten Free!
Good For You Gluten Free is more than just another gluten-free blog; rather it’s a place where you can feel good about being gluten-free and find inspiration and support whether you’re starting your gluten-free journey, or whether you’re simply stopping by along the way.
Please note that everything I share with you is gluten-free and safe for celiacs. I only partner with brands I believe in and ones that offer clean, organic and healthy ingredient labels. I work hard to create recipes using clean, organic and healthy ingredients and try to bring back the joy of food in a celiac’s life. I also like to eat out, on occasion, and help guide restaurants in their understandings of what it means to provide a safe, gluten-free meal. I even wrote an ebook on the topic called Eating Out Gluten-Free. Overall, I enjoy promoting the good for you lifestyle where food can aid in helping us feel our best inside and out.
I’m a certified holistic nutrition and wellness coach (certified by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition). Not only do I have the experience and passion for the gluten-free lifestyle, but also I have the nutritional qualifications to confidently help others on their journey to live a healthier lifestyle too.

While helping people feel their best is my first love, my second love is writing. I majored in Journalism at the University of Missouri-Columbia. I use the power of the pen to help spread the word about healthy, gluten-free living. I’m also a 15+ year marketing professional and the founder of the Denver Blogger’s Club, a group of 200+ food, family, lifestyle and local interest bloggers living and working in the Denver metro area.

What My Readers Say
“I am so impressed with the level of detail and the amount of educational resources you offer on your website. You are truly a godsend to the celiac community. I wish I would have known about your site when I was diagnosed three years ago, as it would have helped me tremendously. I often get asked about a good starting place for those going gluten-free and I direct them to a variety of sources because I’ve never found a site as thorough as yours. Even though I’m fairly good at navigating the GF world and I know a lot, I’ve found myself reading article after article on your blog.” -Valerie C. (Houston, TX)“I want to thank you for all the great information and recipes I have gotten from your site.” -Debbie“Thank you so so so much. I am celiac for nine days now and I think I’m still making mistakes (so much to learn). Tomorrow is my first time eating out and I’m totally nervous. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your care and information. I know we don’t know each other but you are impacting my life.” –Pam
