For those dealing with coeliac disease or medically diagnosed gluten sensitivity, a gluten-free diet is no joke and certainly not a fad diet – it’s a serious health matter. Some might forget that, but not us. Gluten-free isn’t a passing trend for us; it’s a way of life.

Cara Boatswain founded Australian Gluten-Free Life magazine after watching her partner endure a lengthy and traumatic (hello stomach removal) path to diagnosis with coeliac disease. A partial gastrectomy, a few fractured ribs and a diagnosis of osteoporosis finally led to testing for coeliac disease.

As an experienced journalist and magazine publisher, Cara turned to her local newsagent for advice and ideas on how to manage their new gluten-free life. It felt like there were magazines for everything but the gluten-free diet and coeliac disease. The idea for a dedicated gluten-free magazine was born in the aisle of a newsagency in the Sydney suburb of Crow’s Nest in 2012.

In 2023 we launched a digital subscription to enable people following a gluten-free diet to be able to read the magazine and access our gluten-free recipes, tips and research-backed articles from anywhere in the world. If you’d like to become a VIP Member too, you can join us here.

For almost ten years, Australian Gluten-Free Life has inspired and informed those at various stages of their gluten-free journey. At Australian Gluten-Free Life, we’re not just about living gluten-free; we’re about thriving gluten-free. Join us on this incredible journey, and let’s make your gluten-free life the best it can be!
