  • 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.

    Celiac.com 07/30/2007 - I love pizza, and being gluten-free put a pretty serious crimp in my ability to enjoy a fresh, custom-made pizza.
    Also, I've never been particularly fond of frozen pizzas of any kind, but I don't exactly have time to make my own crusts from scratch.
    Even when I could eat pizza from my favorite local pizzeria, I loved to make my own pizza from fresh pizza crust, and to add my own toppings and pull it piping hot and bubbling fresh from my own oven. Since I went on a gluten-free diet, I've pretty much given up on ever again really enjoying pizza piled high with my favorite things like pepperoni and mushrooms.
    But Dad's has come to my rescue and returned pizza to it's proper place of honor I my life. Dad's make a gluten-free pizza crust that fits the bill perfectly.
    Recently,   I rushed home from a long day at work with pizza firmly on my mind. Now, Dad's   gluten-free pizza crust come frozen and I deviated a bit fro the general   instructions by putting it in my fridge to defrost before I left for work. When   I got home, I spread the crust with my favorite pizza sauce, sprinkled on a   generous helping of mozzarella, some pepperoni, mushrooms, threw on a few sweet   red peppers, added a dash of oregano, and popped it in the oven.
    I find letting the crust defrost first makes for more even cooking, and a crisper, yet chewier crust.
    When I pulled it from the oven, I was far from disappointed, I was overjoyed.   What a delight to have tasty, crunchy, chewy, delicious pizza crust back in   my life! Dad's   gluten-free pizza is crunchy and perfectly chewy with excellent flavor,   and a great pizza aroma. Once you add some sauce and cheese and whatever toppings   you like, you're ready to bake a great tasting, hot, bubbly pizza your family   is sure to love.

    There are countless 'health' food snack bars and protein bars on the market, many of which aren't as healthy as their makers would have you think. On the other side of the spectrum, you have snack bars that are loaded with various superfoods and are really quite nutritious, but taste like cardboard. The Peanut Butter Honey GoodOnYa bar is what I would call a perfect middle ground – it is rich and flavorful, but filled with highly nutritious organic ingredients. Even better, it's not only gluten-free, but completely soy-free, dairy-free and grain-free as well.
    When I need a quick snack on the go, I usually go for fruit and a container of yogurt, which I feel is enough of an indulgence. After trying this peanut butter GoodOnYa bar though, I am seriously considering adding it to my morning routine. I adore peanut butter, and in this context, I don't have to feel bad about eating it. These are high quality organic peanuts that are tested by a third party for mold and bacteria (peanuts have gotten bad press over these issues in the past). These peanuts though, are just a rock-solid source of protein and vitamin E.
    This is a truly fillerless bar. Rather than grains, soy or corn, they've included a collection of superfood seeds: organic sprouted flax seeds and organic raw sesame and hemp seeds. These are all low GI 'slow burners;' the end result is a bar that fills you up and gives you energy without a sugar crash.
    The people at GoodOnYa have crafted a snack/protein bar with real integrity. It's deliciously peanut-buttery, and full of things that your body will eventually thank you for. Highly recommended!

    Savory Foods has really hit a home run with their frozen Gluten-Free Licious Gourmet Herb Pizza Crust.
    Many pre-made gluten-free pizza crusts tend to lack flavor, and more importantly, they lack the correct texture and "mouth feel." Savory Foods’ pizza crust offers everything you want in an outstanding pizza crust—great texture with just the right chewiness, a perfect blend of spices and seasonings, and most importantly, you can cook it just the way you want—if you like it crispy, just cook it a little longer, if you like it more chewy, just cook it for less time.
    In my case I followed directions and let it thaw for 30 minutes, then cooked it at 425F for three minutes, then removed it from the oven and added my favorite tomato sauce, cheese and pepperoni, and finished it off in the oven for another 8 minutes—yes, I like my pizza on the chewy side!
    I love being able to add my favorite toppings to my pizzas, but don't like having to prepare a mix, so this crust offers me the perfect solution for my gluten-free pizza cravings!

    Anyone with celiac disease knows how important it is to read the labels on food and beverage products. This is also very important when it comes to supplements. Celiac disease affects how the body absorbs vitamins and minerals, so choosing a supplement to replace those lost is essential. It is also wise to consider a supplement that provides other benefits such as digestive enzymes, antioxidants, and probiotics.
    If you can get one gluten-free supplement that does all this – you've hit the jackpot and I think this is the case with Gluten Free Therapeutics' new Celi-Vites Body Health capsules. In addition to being a great multivitamin, this supplement contains zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, chromium, and molybdenum in a chelated form. Mineral supplements provided as chelated are said to have dramatically improved absorption rates over mineral supplements provided as simple "mineral salts" like zinc chloride.
    Celivites also provides digestive support and antioxidants. Additionally, Celi-Vites contains a proprietary blend of phytonutrients not currently available in any other supplement. Phytonutrients are plant-derived compounds associated with positive health effects.
    I tried them and really liked them. If you want just one supplement because you don't like taking dozens of different pills a day, check out Celi-Vites: www.glutenfreetherapeutics.com.

    I guess I should have added that she already had an endoscopy and biopsy as follow up to an eosinophilic esophagitis diagnosis. The doctor ordered the bloodwork after getting the results back. She is a picky eater and I swear only eats gluten lol It is going to be a struggle if we have to go gluten free.
    If any tests for celiac disease are positive, it generally means that follow up tests, perhaps a biopsy, are needed to confirm CD. Be sure that your daughter continues to eat gluten until all testing is completed, as not eating it could skew future test results.
    Thank you for your reply. I have just edited my post to add nausea! Another big symptom.  Did your doctor send you straight for endoscopy with negative blood results? Or do those other blood tests first?
