The Paleo Diet for Celiacs?

I’ve been struggling mightily with this one. Seriously, I just deleted a couple pages I’d already written, and then decided that was very stupid. Here’s the thing.  I’ve said before that living healthfully and gluten free is a lifestyle, not a “diet.” I just hate the connotations that come along with the word diet.  There’s […]

Intuitive Eating-you Eat Therefore you Think? Getting your Mind into your Food

Intuitive Eating-you Eat Therefore you Think? Getting your Mind into your Food

What does our brain have to do with eating, anyway? Well, as it turns out, quite a bit. If you have struggled at all with eating or weight issues, you’ve no doubt heard that people eat “mindlessly” or that eating is often used to deal with emotional issues that may have nothing to do with […]

Want to See a Gluten Free Show/Chef on the Food Network?

Me too!! On Twitter the other day I caught a tweet from @GopherStudyBlue “@FoodNetwork needs a show on a quickly growing niche: gluten-free and alternative baking/cooking. #foodie #foodnetwork #glutenfree” In non-Twitter speak, this translates to “The Food Network should capitalize on the quickly growing, and becoming more popular, gluten free community that would love to […]

Cross contamination with gluten?!? WAH!

Contamination in Naturally Gluten Free Grains-but Don’t Panic

Last week I posted about the proposed FDA guidelines for labeling an item gluten free.  These guidelines would allow products with less than 20 ppm (parts per million) to be labeled gluten free.  My thoughts were that if you eat one item that contains 20 ppm of gluten, there may be no issue.  However, if […]
