  • About Me

    After many years of unexplained medical issues, I was finally diagnosed with celiac disease in 2002.  The first couple of years were a rough road traveled, but I am feeling better than I ever have.  It is important that I share what I have learned over the years with others and to do my part to help raise awareness of celiac disease.

    I recently discovered Bold Organics gluten-free and dairy-free Meat Lovers Thin Crust Pizza.  There are very few gluten and dairy-free pizzas on the market, but I have to say that this was the best that I have tried to date.  I just put the frozen pizza on the top rack of my oven for about 20 minutes, and you could almost tell when it was done as the aroma drifted into our living room. 
    The crust was a beautiful, crisp, and thin crust, and I had no idea that non-dairy cheese could actually melt the same way as regular dairy cheese.  This pizza was prepared with plenty of pepperoni and Italian sausage to cover the entire pizza, and there was no skimping on ingredients! 
    Once I cut myself a slice I was in disbelief that this was not only a gluten-free, but was also a dairy-free pizza.  The taste, texture and the quality of the pepperoni and sausage was top notch, and not that of your typical frozen gluten-free pizza.  Even though I do not have any issues with dairy, I will definitely be purchasing this pizza again.  Thumbs up from my whole family!

    Usually, SOYJOY bars are all about the taste of fruit. The baked soy makes a great gluten-free base and complements each flavor well, but the fruit is almost always the centerpiece. The new dark chocolate cherry SOYJOY has a new centerpiece: dark chocolate.
    At first, I was taken aback by the overpowering chocolaty taste. I’m usually more of a milk chocolate kind of guy, but I can enjoy dark chocolate in certain situations. A few bites in, and I realized this was one such situation. In fact, I think the bar would have suffered if they had used milk chocolate instead, as the cherries are sweet enough that too much sweetness from the chocolate would be overkill. The bar is very rich, but it still retains the light, slightly moist texture of the other SOYJOY bars. This keeps you from feeling like you just ate a brick of sugar, but still satisfies your chocolate cravings.
    Nutrition-wise, it actually has less sugar and more protein than some other SOYJOY flavors. It is also low glycemic, low sodium and free of trans fats and overly processed ingredients like high fructose corn syrup. Oh, and it’s 100% gluten-free, of course. Each bar comes in at only 140 calories, but they’re packed with flavor so you’ll feel like you’ve eaten more than that (without the guilt).
    If you’re looking for a snack bar that’s rich with the flavor of dark chocolate but isn’t dense or overly sugary like many chocolate snack bars, the dark chocolate cherry SOYJOY is definitely worth a try.

    Schar has done it again with this delicious shortbread dessert cookie.  These cookies are made from corn flour, and are sweetened with both sugar and honey, but the sweetness is not overpowering.  They are crunchy and just the right size to satisfy any craving for the shortbread taste.  They are so good I almost forgot they were gluten-free!  
    I must confess that I did eat the whole bag in one sitting!  Schar is known for their dedicated gluten-free baking facility, so you never have to worry about cross-contamination.

    My daughter Mica (who is not gluten-free) and I recently tried an OMG...It's Gluten Free Cinnamon Crumb Muffin, and her reaction summed up the experience perfectly: "Dad, are you sure this is gluten-free...because it tastes too good? I want more!"
    To be sure, OMG...It's Gluten Free has created a perfect crossover product. It's probably the best gluten-free muffin that I've had since going gluten-free, way back in the mid 1990's.
    Both Mica and I gave this product a huge thumbs up, and she ended up eating the last one I had...before I could.

    Well, TDZ, I certainly hope that your husband is able to get some Dapsone to quickly ameliorate his DH (and that it does not have too many adverse effects on him, either).  It sounds like your husband's DH is worse than mine ever was, so I can only imagine the ongoing agony that he's been dealing with.  To call DH "just an itch" would be like calling am amputation "just a scratch", i.e., probably nobody who has not experienced it can imagine how frustrating, distracting, maddening and depre
    Yeah, I think the only reason to bother with trying to get a diagnosis is if it's needed in order to get the Dapsone, which would be a lifesaver for him in stopping or helping the itching while he gets his diet more in order. He's had continuous rash and lesions and blisters over large to larger parts of his body for a couple of years, and the itching is driving him insane.  We do have an appointment with his PCP this afternoon, to try and talk him into trying the Dapsone -- seems it would
    Alaskaguy,  Sorry to interrupt, but I wanted to put in my two cents. I prefer the Autoimmune Protocol diet because it helps heal the gut so quickly.  It's a bit more strict than the Fasano diet but the results are striking.   https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5647120/#!po=43.7500 People with Celiac and DH have a problem with leaky guts.  The AIP diet helps heal this problem. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3934051 Nightshade vegetables are not allowed
