Celiac and Gluten Free News and Nutrition Notables-January 2011

I’ve decided that I will be doing a roundup sort of post at least monthly.  I know many of you like having these links all in one place.  Perhaps more often if there is just too much goodness for one post.

Celiac and Gluten Free Goodies

  • Rudi’s Gluten Free Bakery and their “Spread the Bread” program to raise celiac awareness.  Rudi’s is donating $1 for each $1 off coupon downloaded to the NFCA, up to $20,000.  That’s what I call putting your money where your mouth is.  Literally.  (oh, bad pun of the day.)  Rudi’s products are certified gluten free through the GFCO.  The folks at Rudi’s very kindly sent me a loaf of their Multigrain bread to try, and it was quite tasty.  (Don’t worry, I still am a believer in going for naturally gluten free foods most of the time, and not desperately trying to substitute gluten free items for glutenous ones.  However, a slice of bread once in a while will not kill you, and you can keep the loaf in the freezer, taking out a slice or two at a time.  No need to eat the whole thing in a week. )  I had it toasted with a bit of almond butter and a sliced banana.  I cannot remember what “regular” bread tasted like, but this was darn good.  So download the coupon and help the NFCA, try the bread, and eat it in MODERATION :).

Nutrition and Health Notables

It’s the beginning of a new year, and with that generally comes decisions to eat more healthfully.  By now, many have already given up.  If you haven’t, good on you!  You’ve likely chosen a sustainable, lifestyle way of eating, rather than a “diet.” Here’s some tips and food for thought.  (Bad pun of the day #2)

  • Your Guide to the Grocery Store from the Whole 9 (remember that Paleo is always gluten free.  Paleo also eliminates all grains, legumes, and dairy.  But this is a great guide for negotiating the store and buying wholesome, healthy food, regardless of what nutritional box people like to label it as.  Good food is good food, period.)

If you’re new here, and need some help planning an overall healthy gluten free diet, read my post on the easiest Gluten Free diet.

And if you want more, Gluten Free and Fit 101 has a lot more reading on living healthy and gluten free.

Enjoy! Hopefully winter is going well for you, so after you get outside and get some activity (shoveling, anyone?) come inside, grab a cup of tea and get reading!

  1. [...] This post was mentioned on Twitter by Gluten Free Fitness, Gluten Free Fitness. Gluten Free Fitness said: @rudisglutenfree Thanks for all you do! #Celiac and #GlutenFree News and Nutrition Notables-January 2011 http://t.co/LmeHa8q [...]

  2. Wow, now I just need some dedicated time to check these all out, Erin! As always, there’s so much good stuff here! Pete always does such an excellent job on his posts and I love how Heidi has her husband giving his insight. I’m waiting for my Rudi’s bread to arrive, but I love the fact that it’s GFCO and made from healthy ingredients. I can’t see myself eating bread often, but the men in my house will enjoy using it for sandwiches. :-) Can’t wait to see the other links, especially where you’ve shared info. ;-)

    Shirley, I know I responded to this but it appears to have disappeared into the WordPress ether…
    Thanks for coming by! Totally agreed on the bread, it’s quite handy to have a loaf in the freezer. I pulled out a slice yesterday and had my almond butter and banana again!

  4. What a great round-up, Erin! I love Pete’s articles and am off to check out all of your other awesome links. And I think it is so great that Heidi is getting Mike to do some posts. I cannot imagine what would happen if I let Kurt write a few. I have a feeling my blog would go in a VERY different direction. LOL

    Hey Kim!
    Pete has been on a tear. His last few articles since this was posted have been stellar as well. Maybe his motivation mojo will rub off on us ;)
