A Mountain Worth Climbing
This has been my first summer as a resident of Sun Valley, Idaho. My life has changed since moving from Chicago last fall. Ive traded skyscrapers for mountains. Hiking is one of the perks of living in this part of the country. After a recent challenging climb, I thought of the tough ascent those of us with food sensitivities have made over the years. When I was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1998, I felt like a pioneer trudging up a steep, uncharted trail. The same was true when I started this magazine. Although people on special diets needed the support and information Living Without provides, it was initially challenging for the publication to attract advertisers. Most of the potential clients I called on thought the food-sensitive market was too small to be of interest.
