Celiac Disease: The Gluten-Free Diet
How does a former psychotherapist find absolute happiness cooking up jillions of gluten free vegan cookies in response to her own Celiac Disease, while using only organic, non-GMO ingredients?

Mary Waldner's success story is a classic.

Starting in her home kitchen, she produced gluten-free crackers as a way to remedy her Celiac Disease.

Friends and family went crazy for the crackers and suddenly she found herself in the baking business, big time.

Colleagues thought she was nuts to give up her psychotherapy practice, saying 'Mary's gone crackers' ...which became the name for the company.
