Gluten Free Food Fair
0

14 posts in this topic

Just a heads up to anyone in Utah that this Saturday, the 15th is the Gluten Free Food Fair in Orem. It was a blast last year and this year is bigger and at a new venue, so should be worth a trip to Utah county even if you aren't directly from the area. We had vendors from all over the state and even some from out of state last year.

 

It is at the Hamptom Inn in Orem from 10 to 3. I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday than relaxing and trying new things and chatting with people who "get it."

 

I'm not sure how many Utahns we have here, but I hope maybe I'll "see" some of you there! :D

This isn't even our big one, this is the rinky dink little food fair thing down in Utah County. There will be a HUGE event this fall up in SLC that will probably draw national attention since Jennifer Esposito will be the keynote speaker. That is the one that I'm super stoked about.

I went to one in Rapid City a couple of years ago before the corn intolerance hit. It was fun, yummy, and educational. Wish I could close the shop for a few days and come out, but alas, it's tourist season and I have to be here.

Being self employed is not all its cracked up to be. Sure there are benefits but there are the downsides too. :(

Yeah, I keep telling my self I'm going to take a vacation but so far it's been seven years (exactly seven years yesterday as a matter of fact), with never more than one day in a row off. No, I take that back, I actually took two days off for a blizzard this past winter. It was glorious to be able to sleep in for a couple of days, but shoveling snow isn't my idea of a vacation. :ph34r:

Okay, I have to share this because I can't believe what happened. We all say we try this things that are amazing right? Well I had a donut today that was absolutely to die for. My husband said he wouldn't have known it was gluten free. OMG I thought I would die of happiness as it melted in my mouth! I brought a mix home and can't wait to make them.

 

I also got all sorts of goodies and freebies. And my husband won a drawing for a gift certificate for a local BBQ joint. Woo!!!

 

As soon as the lady who does the donuts gives me a link to her new website I'll be sure to share! I also picked up a red velvet cake mix from her and that will honestly probably get made before the donuts. I am a sucker for red velvet anything. The woman is also the force behind the new (less sucky) formula for gluten free Bisquick, so she knows her stuff. She is simply amazing.

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
