Weekend Gluten Free, Celiac and Nutrition Roundup-The eclectic edition

Happy Fall everyone!

It sure doesn’t feel like it here in SoFL, we’re still hot and humid.  Well, it is still hurricane season.

Onto the linkage!

National Foundation for Celiac Awareness

  • High Fructose Corn Syrup: Tasty Toxin or Slandered Sweetener?-Science Based Medicine-A logical look at HFCS and other sweeteners.  Bottom line, people-use less of all of it.  Our tastebuds have become accustomed to stupidly high levels of sweetness and artificially enhanced flavor.  Back away from the agave…slowly…slowly…keep your hands where I can see them.
  • I recently came across Diane @ Balanced Bites.  She has a great blog, addresses food allergies and intolerances, and does it with a maximal nutritive value in mind.  I really liked this post “We’ve Been Fed a Pyramid Built of Processed Food Bricks” Great read.  Do it.  Cliffs notes-eat food that requires the most minimal processing in order to eat it.
  • And lastly for this week, a rant.  Because we all deserve, no, we all NEED a good rant every now and again.  This one really resonated with me because I am 36 years old.  I have ovarian insufficiency likely as a secondary effect of celiac disease.  I am going through perimenopause, and it sucks.  And I cannot believe I have potentially 10 more years of this.  So when Mistress Krista over at the Stumpblog posted “I’m Not Old, I’m 37″ it spoke to me.  I laughed, and I practiced my Kegels.  Ladies, I think you will all get a kick out of it.  Guys, Krista could kick your butt, so you better read it.  There is a ton of awesome content over on the Stumpblog, so settle in and read for a bit.

Everyone have an awesome week!

  1. Erin, once again another great collection of information here! Thanks for putting this all together! I especially appreciated your link to “I’m Not Old, I’m 37″. I am 37 and although I do not have ovarian insufficiency, I know my body was really screwed up for a while before I went gluten free and started eating the way I do now. I had one miscarriage before my first son and the 3 more miscarriages before my second. Now I know I am in a much better place, but that post had me cracking up and I wondering if I am in perimenopause as well.
    Great post, my friend!

    I know, I was sitting here laughing, almost crying because I could SO relate. So sorry to hear about your miscarriages, I can only imagine how difficult that must have been. I hesitated a bit to mention my own issues, everyone has their own challenges and I certainly didn’t want it to be “TMI” but I think there are many others out there who can relate and appreciate that they are far from alone.
    Welcome to the club, sista! :)

  3. Hey Erin,

    Sorry I missed your NFCA webinar. I unfortunately had a schedule conflict. But I read through the PDF of the slides, and it looked great! Thanks for helping to spread and share your knowledge for athletes! The big race is tomorrow morning…I’m so ready to race! Enough preparation, let the games begin!

    Cheers, Pete
