  • 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.

    3 cups gluten-free flour mix(see below)
    ¼ cup sugar
    3 ½ teaspoons xanthan gum
    2/3 cup dry powder milk
    1 ½ teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons sugar
    ½ cup lukewarm water
    1 ½ tablespoons yeast granules
    ¼ cup shortening
    1 ¼ cups water
    1 teaspoon vinegar
    3 eggs
    Combine flour, sugar, xanthan gum, milk powder, and salt in bowl of heavy duty mixer. Use strongest beaters. Dissolve the 2 teaspoons of sugar in the ½ cup of lukewarm water and mix in the yeast Set aside while you combine the shortening and 1 ¼ cups water in saucepan and heat until shortening melts. Turn mixer on low. Blend dry ingredients and slowly add shortening and water mixture and the vinegar. Blend, then add eggs. This mixture should feel slightly warm.
    Pour the yeast mixture into the ingredients in the bowl and beat at highest speed for 2 minutes. Place mixing bowl in a warm place, cover with plastic wrap and a towel, and let the dough rise approximately 1 to 1 ½ hours or until doubled. Return to the mixer and beat on high for 3 minutes.
    Spoon the dough into 3 small (2 ½ by 5) greased loaf pans or 1 large one. Use muffin tins and bake any remainder as small rolls.

    ½ cup amaranth flour
    ½ cup tapioca flour
    2 teaspoon arrowroot powder
    2 teaspoon light, cold-pressed oil
    ½ cup water
    1/3-2/3 cup extra flour for kneading
    Sift the flours with the arrowroot powder. In a separate bowl, mix the oil and water, then add to the flour mixture. Work the dough with a fork and then your hands. Knead briefly and roll into a ball. Divide the ball into 8 parts. Roll each part into a ball and pat flat. Sprinkle each bread with flour and roll between 2 sheets of waxed paper with a rolling pin. Turn frequently while rolling, and lift the waxed paper occasionally to add flour so the dough does not stick. The bread should be rounded and about 1/8 inch thick.
    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly oil a frying pan and heat to medium-high. Put one flatbread in the pan and heat 15-20 seconds on each side. Immediately put bread in oven and heat 3 minutes. Turn over and heat 1 ½ - 2 more minutes. The bread will puff up a bit in the oven, but not as much as traditional pita because it has no yeast. Re-oil the pan with a paper towel dipped in oil, and repeat procedure for each flatbread. Cool breads before storing in plastic bags. Makes 8 breads.

    Evening primrose oil and omega 3 fatty acids (fish oil) will help both rheumatoid arthritis and reynaud's.   Getting one's vitamin D level up to 70 ng/mol or above will help reynaud's, as will supplementing magnesium, niacin and B6.   I have Reynaud's since childhood and these things have helped me.  
    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.
