  • About Me

    I diagnosed myself for gluten intolerance after a lifetime of bizarre, seemingly unrelated afflictions. If my doctors had their way, I would have already undergone neck surgery, still be on 3 different inhalers for asthma, be vomiting daily and having chronic panic attacks. However, since eliminating gluten from my diet in May 2009, I no longer suffer from any of those things. Even with the proof in the pudding (or gluten) my doctors now want me to ingest gluten to test for celiac-no can do.

    In a smaller bowl, stir together the liquid ingredients until combined. Slowly add liquid mixture to the dry ingredient bowl, mix with the paddle attachment and pour in the yeast, stirring until the lumps are removed from the dough. Beat an additional 2 minutes thereafter.
    Dust a clean counter or pastry mat and your hands with Jules Gluten Free All Purpose
    Flour. Grab small fist-fulls of the wet dough, patting into a 5 inch square by liberally dusting the dough and your hands with Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour . Lay the squares onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush off excess flour.
    Makes approximately 7 danish squares.

    Cinnamon Apple Filling
    Ingredients:
     3 tart apples, peeled and coarsely chopped  ¼ cup light brown sugar  2 Tbs. butter or non-dairy alternative (e.g. Earth Balance Buttery Sticks)  1 Tbs. cinnamon
    Directions:Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and cinnamon, stirring to combine. Add the apples and stir to coat with the sugar-butter mixture. Stir periodically to coat and keep cooking all the apples. Cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the sugar-butter mixture is thin and the apples are tender. Set aside to cool.

    Cream Cheese Filling
    Ingredients:
    1 recipe danish dough 12 oz. cream cheese (dairy or soy) ¾ cup granulated cane sugar 1 egg yolk 1 tsp. gluten-free vanilla extract
    Directions:Whisk together cream cheese, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla. Place in a sealed container and refrigerate or freeze until thick.

    Gluten-Free Pastries
    Pinwheels:  Using a pizza cutter or pastry wheel, cut a slit from each of the 4 corners almost to the center, but not intersecting or cutting through the center. Place a dollop of cheese or cinnamon apples in the center and brush the remaining exposed pastry with egg wash. Fold every other tip into the center, and dab each corner with milk or water to help them to adhere to one another. Gently lift to the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover the baking sheet with oiled wax paper and place in a warming drawer or oven preheated to 200 F then turned off for 30 minutes to proof.Preheat oven to 350 F (static) or 325 F (convection).  Remove the wax paper and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until lightly browned and resistant to a light touch (i.e. when pressed with a gentle fingertip, it rebounds rather than leaving a divot).
    Envelopes: Place a dollop of cheese or cinnamon apples in the center and brush the remaining exposed pastry with egg wash. Fold each opposite corner into the center, and dab each corner with milk or water to help them to adhere to one another. Gently lift to the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover the baking sheet with oiled wax paper and place in a warming drawer or oven preheated to 200 F then turned off for 30 minutes to proof.
    Preheat oven to 350 F (static) or 325 F (convection).  Remove the wax paper and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until lightly browned and resistant to a light touch (i.e. when pressed with a gentle fingertip, it rebounds rather than leaving a divot).
    Blanket: Turn the square so that it is a triangle with a tip at the top and bottom.  Place an elongated dollop of cheese or cinnamon apples in the center and extend to the top and bottom corners, leaving the right and left corners without filling, and brush the remaining exposed pastry with egg wash. Fold the right and left corners into the center, and dab each corner with milk or water to help them to adhere to one another. Gently lift to the baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  OCover the baking sheet with oiled wax paper and place in a warming drawer or oven preheated to 200 F then turned off for 30 minutes to proof.

    Press-in Crust recipe
    Ingredients:
    1 1/2 cups cup Jules Gluten FreeTM All Purpose Flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp gluten-free vanilla extract
    1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    3 Tbs milk, dairy or non-dairy (vanilla coconut, soy, almond or rice milk)
    Directions:
    Whisk together the flour and salt. Make a well in the middle of the mixture, and pour in the vanilla, oil and milk. Using a fork, stir the liquids into the dry ingredients, forming a crumbly mixture that is wet enough to stick together if you squeeze in your hand. If the mixture is too dry, add milk one teaspoon at a time.
    Pour crust mixture into a 9-inch pie pan and press evenly across the bottom and up the sides of the pie pan, working from the center out.
    Pie Filling recipe
    Ingredients:
    3 eggs
    ¼ cup Jules Gluten FreeTM All Purpose Flour
    ¼ tsp sea salt
    1 cup corn syrup (dark is pictured here, but may use light) or brown rice syrup
    ¼ cup pure maple syrup
    ½ cup brown sugar
    1/3 cup melted butter or Earth Balance® Buttery Sticks (non-dairy)
    1 ¼ cup pecan halves
    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 400F.
    If using a traditional pie crust or the press-in crust, prepare in the pie pan and begin making the filling as follows.  If not using a pie crust, oil the pie plate well and continue with filling instructions below.
    Beat the eggs, syrups and melted butter until well-mixed.  Add in the flour and salt, mixing until thoroughly incorporated and quite thick.
    Lay the pecan halves on the bottom of the pie plate (on top of crust, if using) so that they cover the entire bottom of the plate.  Gently pour the syrup mixture on top, which causes the pecans to rise through the syrup and be spread throughout the pie.
    Bake at 400F for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 325 F and bake a further 35 minutes.  The pie should be set and not very jiggly at this point.  Remove to cool before cutting and serving.
    Serve with ice cream or non-dairy topping, or plain.
    Serves 8.

    Celiac.com 07/17/2018 - What can fat soluble vitamin levels in newly diagnosed children tell us about celiac disease? A team of researchers recently assessed fat soluble vitamin levels in children diagnosed with newly celiac disease to determine whether vitamin levels needed to be assessed routinely in these patients during diagnosis.
    The researchers evaluated the symptoms of celiac patients in a newly diagnosed pediatric group and evaluated their fat soluble vitamin levels and intestinal biopsies, and then compared their vitamin levels with those of a healthy control group.
    The research team included Yavuz Tokgöz, Semiha Terlemez and Aslıhan Karul. They are variously affiliated with the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, the Department of Pediatrics, and the Department of Biochemistry at Adnan Menderes University Medical Faculty in Aydın, Turkey.
    The team evaluated 27 female, 25 male celiac patients, and an evenly divided group of 50 healthy control subjects. Patients averaged 9 years, and weighed 16.2 kg. The most common symptom in celiac patients was growth retardation, which was seen in 61.5%, with  abdominal pain next at 51.9%, and diarrhea, seen in 11.5%. Histological examination showed nearly half of the patients at grade Marsh 3B. 
    Vitamin A and vitamin D levels for celiac patients were significantly lower than the control group. Vitamin A and vitamin D deficiencies were significantly more common compared to healthy subjects. Nearly all of the celiac patients showed vitamin D insufficiency, while nearly 62% showed vitamin D deficiency. Nearly 33% of celiac patients showed vitamin A deficiency. 
    The team saw no deficiencies in vitamin E or vitamin K1 among celiac patients. In the healthy control group, vitamin D deficiency was seen in 2 (4%) patients, vitamin D insufficiency was determined in 9 (18%) patients. The team found normal levels of all other vitamins in the healthy group.
    Children with newly diagnosed celiac disease showed significantly reduced levels of vitamin D and A. The team recommends screening of vitamin A and D levels during diagnosis of these patients.

    Celiac.com 07/16/2018 - Did weak public oversight leave Arizonans ripe for Theranos’ faulty blood tests scam? Scandal-plagued blood-testing company Theranos deceived Arizona officials and patients by selling unproven, unreliable products that produced faulty medical results, according to a new book by Wall Street Journal reporter, whose in-depth, comprehensive investigation of the company uncovered deceit, abuse, and potential fraud.
    Moreover, Arizona government officials facilitated the deception by providing weak regulatory oversight that essentially left patients as guinea pigs, said the book’s author, investigative reporter John Carreyrou. 
    In the newly released "Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup," Carreyrou documents how Theranos and its upstart founder, Elizabeth Holmes, used overblown marketing claims and questionable sales tactics to push faulty products that resulted in consistently faulty blood tests results. Flawed results included tests for celiac disease and numerous other serious, and potentially life-threatening, conditions.
    According to Carreyrou, Theranos’ lies and deceit made Arizonans into guinea pigs in what amounted to a "big, unauthorized medical experiment.” Even though founder Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos duped numerous people, including seemingly savvy investors, Carreyrou points out that there were public facts available to elected officials back then, like a complete lack of clinical data on the company's testing and no approvals from the Food and Drug Administration for any of its tests.
    SEC recently charged the now disgraced Holmes with what it called a 'years-long fraud.’ The company’s value has plummeted, and it is now nearly worthless, and facing dozens, and possibly hundreds of lawsuits from angry investors. Meantime, Theranos will pay Arizona consumers $4.65 million under a consumer-fraud settlement Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich negotiated with the embattled blood-testing company.
    Both investors and Arizona officials, “could have picked up on those things or asked more questions or kicked the tires more," Carreyrou said. Unlike other states, such as New York, Arizona lacks robust laboratory oversight that would likely have prevented Theranos from operating in those places, he added.
    Stay tuned for more new on how the Theranos fraud story plays out.

    Celiac.com 07/13/2018 - I went to a friend’s home for dinner.  A few days before, she called and asked me what I could eat.  I asked her what she was planning to make, and she said she was grilling meats with side dishes.  I said, “Great.  Please just grill a piece of chicken for me with salt and pepper, and I’ll be happy to bring a side.” She said, “No need to bring a side.  I’ve got this.” When I arrived, she greeted me and said, “I spent all day cooking tonight’s dinner so you can eat it. Hey would you just check this salad dressing to see if it is OK for you?” I looked at the ingredients and it contained gluten and dairy, both of which I cannot eat.  Then I glanced around the kitchen and saw evidence of wheat cross-contamination, including buns being toasted on the grill, and gluten-containing barbeque sauce spilling on the grill where my “clean” chicken was cooking. She had other guests to tend to, and I couldn’t offer instruction or read the ingredients of everything she used in the meal. 
    At social gatherings, I’ve been challenged too by those who ask if I am really “allergic,” or just eating gluten free as a “fad.” I’ve been told many times by hosts and hostesses that, “a little won’t hurt you,” or “everything in moderation,” or “if it is made with loving hands, it is good for you to eat.”  Of course, all of this is bunk for those with food allergies or celiac disease.  A little bit may kill us, and whether made with loving hands or not, it will certainly make us sick. 
    Those of us with food allergies and/or celiac disease walk a tightrope with friends and relatives. The old rules of etiquette just don’t work anymore.  We don’t want to insult anybody, we don’t want to be isolated, and we also don’t want to risk our health by eating foods that may contain ingredients we cannot tolerate.  So what do we do? 
    Etiquette books advise us to eat what is put in front of us when we are guests in someone’s home. They caution us at all costs not to insult our hostess. Rather, we are instructed to compliment the hostess on her good cooking, flavor combinations, and food choices.  But when foods are prepared in a cross-contaminated environment with ingredients we are allergic to, we cannot follow the old social constructs that do not serve us.  We need to work together to rewrite the rules, so that we can be included in social gatherings without fear of cross-contamination, and without offending anyone.
    Let’s figure out how to surmount these social situations together.  
    Each edition of this column will present a scenario, and together, we’ll determine appropriate, polite, and most importantly, safe ways to navigate this tricky gluten-free/food allergies lifestyle in a graceful way.  If someone disagrees with our new behavior patterns, we can refer them to this column and say, “Here are the new rules for those of us with food allergies or celiac disease.”  When we are guests in someone’s home, we can give them links to this column so they understand the plight we are faced with, bite after bite. Perhaps this will help those of us living with us to understand, be more compassionate, and accepting of our adaptations to keep ourselves safe. 
    This column will present a scenario such as the one above, and ask that you comment on how you would navigate it. Let’s talk about it. Let’s share ideas.  Using the example above, here’s the scenario for this issue:
    What would you do?
    Your kind-hearted friend invites you to dinner and insists on cooking for you.  You arrive and the first thing she says is, “I’ve spent all day making this for you. Oh, I bought this salad dressing for you, but you might want to read the ingredients first.”  You do, and it contains malt vinegar.  You look around the kitchen and notice evidence of cross-contamination in the rest of the meal.  What do you do? 
    Please comment below and feel free to share the tricky scenarios that you’ve encountered too.  Let’s discuss how to surmount these social situations.  What would you do?

    Celiac.com 07/12/2018 - Previous research has shown that the oral administration of Bifidobacterium infantis Natren Life Start super strain (NLS-SS) reduces of gastro-intestinal symptoms in untreated celiac disease patients. The reduction of symptoms was not connected with changes in intestinal permeability or serum levels of cytokines, chemokines, or growth factors. Therefore, researchers suspected that the reduction of symptoms might be related to the modulation of innate immunity.
    To test that hypothesis, a team of researchers set out to assess the potential mechanisms of a probiotic B.infantis Natren Life Start super strain on the mucosal expression of innate immune markers in adult patients with active untreated celiac disease compared with those treated with B. infantis 6 weeks and after 1 year of gluten-free diet.
    The research team included Maria I. Pinto-Sanchez, MD, Edgardo C. Smecuol, MD, Maria P. Temprano,RD, Emilia Sugai, BSBC, Andrea Gonzalez, RD, PhD, Maria L. Moreno,MD, Xianxi Huang, MD, PhD, Premysl Bercik, MD, Ana Cabanne, MD, Horacio Vazquez, MD, Sonia Niveloni, MD, Roberto Mazure, MD, Eduardo Mauriño, MD, Elena F. Verdú, MD, PhD, and Julio C. Bai, MD. They are affiliated with the Medicine Department, Farcombe Family Digestive Health Research Institute, McMaster University, Hamilton, ON, Canada; the Small Intestinal Section, Department of Medicine and the Department of Alimentation at Dr. C. Bonorino Udaondo, Gastroenterology Hospital and Research Institute at the Universidad del Salvador in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
    The team determined the numbers of macrophages and Paneth cells, along with the expression of a-defensin-5 expression via immunohistochemistry in duodenal biopsies.
    Their results showed that a gluten-free diet lowers duodenal macrophage counts in celiac disease patients more effectively than B. infantis, while B. infantis lowers Paneth cell counts and reduces expression of a-defensin-5.
    This study documents the differential innate immune effects of treatment with B. infantis compared with 1 year of gluten-free diet. The team calls for further study to better understand the synergistic effects of gluten-free diet and B. infantis supplementation in celiac disease.
