Gluten Free Awareness On Food Netwok
0

14 posts in this topic

I was flipping passed the food network and it had a woman with celiac who was cooking wonderful looking gluten-free food to let people not only know about celiac but let them in on some wonderful recipes. Anyone else see this??? It said to go to the food network website for more info, but I can't find anything....

That's awesome!!! I have been thinking that it can't be too long before someone over there is either diagnosed or has a friend or relative who is diagnosed.

What did the lady look like? If it's a regular host, I might be able to figure out who it is.

FANTASTIC!! I was just thinking we should all write letters to the Food Network, and maybe they'd start a gluten-free cooking show, but it lookslike they're ahead of me! I haven't looked up their website yet. What time was this (and in what time zone)? Was this a cooking show or a commercial?

I watch the Food Network frequently, as well as visit the website for recipes, and I haven't seen anything about cooking gluten-free. I will keep my eye out for it.

That would be great to have a show featuring gluten-free cooking!

Yea, I'm a Food Network junkie too. :lol:

I was thinking about writing them too to suggest either a program or a special. I was thinking about a program for food allergies and health issues in general, addressing a different one each week maybe. Or successive, in-depth, one hour specials on health issues that diet plays a part of; celiac, casein, diabetes, heart disease, cancer.

I'm so excited that even the word celiac was said on the food network. That they said celiac and recipes in the same sentence is like a dream.

It could also have been a commercial for a show or special coming up in the fall? Hopefully someone will see it again. As much as I watch the food network, I only saw a commercial for Guy Fieri's new show twice I think.

I tried to find an email address for food network, but they say that they get so much mail that they ask you to email the individual show.

this has been talked about on the SillyYaks message board - here is the link to the lady's blog. From what I can tell, what yiou saw was a commercial for a new show that is called "the power of food" and she will be on the show for just one time I think (her name is Shauna James or King - not sure which). No one has been able to find out when it will be on though :(

If I find out I'll post. Hopefully someone will see it advertised with a date and time soon :)

Read this from her page:

Yes to being on the Food Network, unexpectedly. For all those of you have asked, yes that was me on TV the past few days. The Food Network segment has already started airing, and judging by the numbers of emails that have been coming in the last couple of days, they seem to be airing it several times a day now. It's supposed to be part of a larger program called The Power of Food, which profiles people whose lives have been changed by food. However, they seem to be running a 30-second version of my segment as a stand-alone promo. Many people who have written to me seem to think it is a commercial for my website or for a cooking show I'm going to be doing. Judging by the emotional responses people have been having, it's clear there's a need for a gluten-free cooking show. But as of now, the segment is simply running on the Food Network as a little commercial for Gluten-Free Girl. Goodness. Yes.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
