    Celiac.com 10/06/2017 - Gluten-free doesn't have to be complicated or confusing. It can be easy and delicious without thinking twice about the processed foods in the food stores. Simply eat Clean. What's Clean, you say? It's about eating real, wholesome, naturally gluten-free foods and steering clear of processed, packaged foods.

    My Clean eating philosophy is about fresh and simple ingredients. That's right, how about starting with some avocado, roasted turkey, fresh raspberries and balsamic vinegar that you can easily whip up in a food processor for a tasty turkey pate to use throughout the week with crudités or corn tortillas? It takes five minutes to make and you can store it in the fridge for a quick dose of protein any time of the day whether it be a meal or snack.

    How about adding some to your morning omelet, spread it atop your afternoon sandwich with lettuce and tomato or added to your burritos for dinner? See how easy it can be? And guess what? It's naturally gluten-free and delicious. You don't have to think twice or worry about eating anything out of a box when you can visit your local farmers' market for fresh produce and your butcher for lean proteins such as turkey, chicken, bison and eggs.

    If you're a vegetarian or vegan, simply use tofu and you're all set. It's as easy as 1,2,3 and you've got a week's worth of eats to enjoy when your stomach starts rumbling. So, next time you are yearning for a processed food, think again and slice up some veggies to serve with your new pate recipe. Believe me I know first-hand about eating Clean as my whole approach to Clean eating started a few years ago when my body started reacting negatively to packaged foods. What helped me heal? Food. That's right. Real, Clean food; I have real food to thank. Because gluten-free is not about the gluten-free cookies and packaged, over-processed foods. It's about eating Clean. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and healthy fats. That's exactly what I eat. I love it and I know you will to!

    Bon Appetite.

    Celiac.com 12/23/2016 - Before my dog Amber's health started to fall apart, I had observed friends and family members on their gluten free journeys without ever considering this could be a solution for me. Years of periodic juice fasting, vegan and vegetarian diets, and then finally a GMO-free, semi-vegetarian lifestyle, had never led me to consider complete and total gluten free eating, until Amber.

    I would like to introduce the term "zero" when we talk about eliminating gluten. Precise language leads to precise action. Zero means none, not some.
    Yes, my recommendation is to change the gluten-language that we have been using. The meaning of the phrase 'gluten-free' has been diluted, so it almost has the connotation of 'not-much-gluten'. It suggests that 'a-little-gluten-does-not-matter' or 'you-are-free-to-give-up-gluten-if-you-want-to'.
    A much stronger expression is needed. I am changing t...

    Celiac.com 06/08/2017 - After thirty three years of a self indulgent relationship with food, my life hit rock bottom and took an unexpected turn, for what momentarily seems to be the worst. As spontaneous and adventurous as I am, I decided to challenge myself and make my already horrid situation, even worse. Or, as you will come to see, surprisingly better.
    To start, when I say self indulgent, I mean I allowed myself to have whatever delicious and comforting food I wanted, whenever I wanted. This was never anywhere close to an eating disorder, but I most certainly had a seductive sweet tooth and I definitely experienced emotional eating. A bowl of ice...

    Celiac.com 06/30/2017 - Dear attending physician: If you are reading this it is because your patient either expects you to refuse or you have refused to test them for celiac disease. You may believe, in keeping with prior training, that this patient does not display the signs or symptoms associated with celiac disease. However, the symptom complex of celiac disease has recently undergone dramatic changes, beginning with the understanding that celiac disease is a systemic, rather than an intestinal ailment. World renowned researchers have weighed in on this issue, with peer reviewed reports that repeatedly establish the protean manifestations of celiac ...
