  • About Me

    In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I founded The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.

    Today I tried a product that many celiacs should appreciate—a delicious Raspberry Attune Gluten-Free Probiotic Chocolate Bar.  The amazing thing about these bars (they make several flavors, including Raspberry, Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Crisp) is that they contain five times the live cultures as yogurt, so they would be an especially important addition to anyone’s diet who has celiac disease. 
    The gluten-free bar was excellent, and it tasted like a very high-quality chocolate bar with small pieces of raspberry—an excellent combination of flavors.  Since it is made with 68% cacao it is likely packed with natural antioxidants as well as the added probiotics (in the form of Bifidobacterium Lactis HN019, Lactobacillius Acidophilus NCFM and Lactobacillius Casei LC-11).
    I would recommend these bars to anyone who wants to add a healthy snack or dessert to their diet that also packs antioxidants and probiotics in a single, small 0.7 oz. gluten-free chocolate bar (it is only 90 calories).  These bars will also fool my kids—they will be eating something they love, chocolate, but also something that is healthy—so if you have children this is the kind of treat you should be looking for!

    I had a gluten-free bread that "worked", until I recently tried the gluten-free certified Rudi's Multigrain Bread. I'm always a bit of a skeptic when trying new gluten-free products especially gluten-free bread! However, I couldn't ignore the buzz about Rudi's gluten-free bread and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to give it a try. I took out a slice of their Multigrain Bread to try and was pleasantly surprised. Rudi's bread was literally like a slice of heaven. Their Multigrain Bread had such an amazing taste and texture, even though I'm usually not a fan of mulitgrain breads. However, I still had to put it to the ultimate test and make a deli-style sandwich with all the fixings. I have yet to find a gluten-free bread that doesn't fall apart after the first bite when I add moist items like pickles, tomatoes and avocado. I was so happy when the sandwich actually held together after each bite...down to the very last! Needless to say I've been getting my fill of gluten-free sandwiches lately, and felt it was important to share my excitement with everyone.

    With three children, it feels like I am always on the go, so I am always on the lookout for nutritious gluten-free snacks that I can keep in my car or grab on my way out the door.  However, recently I've grown tired of the typical flavor profile found with most gluten-free nutrition bars, but I really did want to find one that would excite my taste buds. 
    I was particularly happy when I came across SOYJOY's pineapple flavored gluten-free bars.  At first, I was a little worried that the pineapple flavor would taste artificial, or that it would have an overpowering pineapple taste.  Thankfully, that wasn't the case!  They use real dried pineapple and juice (what a concept), and that is only a small part of what this makes this bar a tropical treat.  SOYJOY's gluten free pineapple bars have a nice texture that is moist with bits of dried pineapple, raisins and coconut, which gives it a pleasant chewy texture.  It reminds me of a tropical cookie more than it does a nutrition bar. 
    Unlike other gluten free bars, SOYJOY kept the ingredient list pure and simple so you know exactly what you are eating.  They use ground whole soy, which is high in nutrients like protein, fiber and iron, and the bar is also rich in antioxidants and minerals.  Although this bar was smaller than I had expected, it was just enough to keep me satisfied between meals.  With only 140 calories per bar, 4 grams of protein, and 3 grams of fiber, this bar is certainly a little treasure that I will be sure to stock up on.  They also are perfect to keep in the car or handy for travel since they hold up well in the heat. 
    If you’re looking to be pleasantly surprised like I was, then I would recommend giving them a try.

    Ramen are traditional Japanese-style noodle cakes which unfold while you cook them.  
    King Soba's Organic Buckwheat Ramen are the healthiest and the best tasting ramen you can buy.
    It is made with only two ingredients, organic buckwheat flour and water, these ramen noodles can be used in a variety of ways – as a snack, in stir-fry dishes or mixed in with broth to provide taste and texture.  
    Buckwheat comes from a plant that is in the rhubarb family (who would have known?) and it has a unique nutty flavor.  You'll never eat the other kind of ramen again after you've tried these noodles from King Soba.

    TDZ, that is interesting that you mention weed-eating as coinciding with the start of your husband's rash, as about 12 years ago I had a possibly similar experience.  It was in the spring (meaning late May here in SC Alaska), and I was cutting the lawn.  Rather than bagging up all the lawn clippings, I would just take the filled bag off the mower, walk into the woods behind the house, and pull out the clippings with my hand and then scatter them around (so that they didn't just all rot and feste
    Not a clue, other than normal eating. He ate a fair amount of bread, and pasta and pizza and such. Right before the massive outbreak in November, there was a peppermint/chocolate-drizzled popcorn that I got at Walmart, and it gave both of us horrible diarrhea, and within a few days he was covered with more rash than ever before. Might have been unrelated, but it's the only unusual thing that times out right for any causality. Otherwise, he wasn't eating anything different. The first thing t
    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
