G-free love! My goal is to bring humor and positivity to our lifestyle. I am not the amazing chef with beautiful pictures of food, but I’m the down-to-earth 20 something that’s just trying to spread g-free love to all!
Laura Hanley with Gluten Free Laura
I have been stocking this gluten free blogger since I discovered her a year ago and my dream came true when I met her at the GFAF Expo in Chicago. We immediately clicked and at a casual ‘meet and greet’ the first night of the Expo, we were in tears laughing so hard from her hilarious sense of humor! She knows so much about gluten free products and living and makes being gluten free not a handicap, but a blessing! She’s tagged the term gfreelove and I get why. She spreads her love through laughter!

Where are you based out of? Toledo, Ohio
Are you personally gluten free? Celiac? Any other Allergies?
I am gluten free, but not a diagnosed Celiac. I am positive for the alleles of the genetic markers DQ2 and DQ8. My mom was diagnosed with Celiac in 2008.
What drew you to the internet and inspired you to blogging world? (AKA, your story)
I started blogging because I am a marketing nerd and was inspired to create a personal brand. I figured it would help me build the skills I needed for my industry, but now gluten-free blogging has turned into my passion and I am so happy with where my blog is today.
What is your favorite thing to blog about?
My fav thing to blog about is ridiculous stories. I enjoy making people laugh, so I try to relate the gluten-free diet to fun things that will put a smile on someone’s face. For example, did you know that Britney Spears sang about the gluten-free diet, or that our lifestyle is similar to that of a zombie apocalypse? (Stop it! My side hurts!)
What is your “message”?
My message is g-free love! My goal is to bring humor and positivity to our lifestyle. I am not the amazing chef with beautiful pictures of food, but I’m the down-to-earth 20 something that’s just trying to spread g-free love to all!
What is your favorite gluten free indulgence? (Greenbean wanted to know)
My favorite gluten-free indulgence is nachos. Like seriously, I’m addicted. It’s semi-ridiculous.
Would you like to contribute a recipe?
Homemade Corn Salsa
This is one of my favorite recipes because it’s super easy AND delicious.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself at age 29. Hopefully I’ll have a gluten-free dating series to share with you all, but first I have to go on some dates to do that (yes fellas, I’m single). I also hope to build my blog and following to reach and inspire more people, but I never want to see G-Free Laura as “work” but always as a fun activity that I have a passion for.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I also want to add how much I love our community, including you, Claudine. I don’t know any other type of community that is so welcoming and inspiring as we are!
What is something interesting about you that may or may not be related to blogging?
I love cats.
Laura, you are one of a kind. Keep spreading that gluten free love through your laughter and know how in celiac awareness and living. It is a gift to know you professionally and personally.
