  • 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.

    Amy's recently came out with their "Sonoma" Veggie Burger, which is not only gluten free, but soy and dairy free as well. The Sonoma veggie burger is packed with organic whole ingredients so there was a level of comfort knowing exactly what I would be putting into my body.  I am not a vegetarian, but I am trying to eat more health consciously, so I thought I would give them a try.
    I wanted to toss them on the grill, but the weather was not cooperating, so I just popped them in the oven for about 5 minutes each side and "ta-da," they were done.  The Sonoma Veggie Burger was well-seasoned and had a nice nutty quality that is usually found in veggie/grain-based patties.  The outside of the patty was firm and slightly crisp, with a semi-soft interior. 
    I piled on the fixings and was about to dig in when the smell had lured my two non-celiac, meat-eating children into the kitchen (despite the fact that they had just eaten).  I gave them each a bite and both girls said it was good.  My youngest actually requested that I make Amy's veggie burgers next time it's burger night – no lie!

    Crackers are usually thought of as crispy, baked things made out of flour (usually nutritionally-devoid refined white flour). Foods Alive's Organic Onion Garlic Flax Crackers are a whole different kind of snack, but they are way more nutritious, and also quite yummy!
    If asked to describe these crackers, I would say they’re like flat, crispy cakes of unprocessed flax seeds that have been compressed together. These are not the high glycemic rice, corn or potato flour/starch junk food crackers you’re used to – they’re 90% raw, USDA organic, and made almost entirely from a highly nutritious, unprocessed superfood that has shown some evidence of reducing heart disease, cancer, etc. etc.: flaxseed!
    All that might sound too nutritious to taste good, but these crackers are actually quite palatable. This onion and garlic variety is absolutely bursting with flavor. There's no weird consistency or anything like that going on either, as one might expect from eating, well, raw seeds (no, you don't have to be a bird to enjoy these)! Some gluten-free crackers that too closely try to emulate saltines or other 'conventional' crackers end up with a weird grainy texture that some find off-putting. There's nothing like that going on here: just seeds, and tasty stuff holding them together.

    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.

    When a company comes out with a new energy drink, I'm generally skeptical—I mean, you're talking to a serious coffee drinker here!   But after trying this great new product from IDLife, I have now made the switch. No more coffee in the afternoon—only IDLife's energy drink.
    The recommended scoop gives sustained energy from late morning to mid-afternoon and the berry flavor tastes delicious. While this energy drink does contain caffeine, the boost you get is obviously very different from a cup of coffee. Some important ingredients include Bitter Orange Extract, Quercetin and Taurine.  
    Bitter orange stimulates the digestive function by stimulating production of digestive enzymes.  Quercetin is an antioxidant that provides cardiovascular protection. Taurine is an amino acid that helps regulate the level of water and mineral salts in the blood.  
    Something else I really like is that this energy drink is sweetened with stevia, not sugar. And last, but not least, it contains red beet powder which is a rich source of protein. A jar of this magical powder lasts a long time and is much less expensive than pre-made liquid energy drinks.  It also comes in handy travel packets.

    I looked on your profile and the FB page you linked there and couldn't find a blog link…
    I have Zanier heated gloves, but my Marmot Expedition mittens work better for walking the dogs. When your core and head are cold your body sacrifices the extremities or so I've been told.
    The best thing to do is call your church office and ask.  Find out what one they use and the  procedure. Then you can check on the host they buy.  There are some that have basically no gluten.  Or you can see if you can get the blessed  wine set aside for you.
