    Whether served with rice, coleslaw, corn on the cob, or your favorite beans, pulled pork is a tasty treat. As always, double-check your spices to make sure they're gluten-free. Use cider vinegar in place of white vinegar, when in doubt.

    • 1 Pork Butt (shoulder)
    • 2 (20 ounce) bottles gluten-free barbecue sauce (or optional mustard sauce noted below)
    • 3 tablespoons smoked paprika
    • 3 tablespoons sea salt
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
    • 1 tablespoon dry mustard
    • 2 teaspoons black pepper
    • 2 teaspoons chili powder
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne
    • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 teaspoon dried cumin

    Directions:
    Mix together all dry ingredients and rub pork shoulder until well-coated.

    Marinate in a bag overnight.

    Place shoulder in a roasting pan and roast for 5-6 hours, until pork is tender and shreds easily with 2 forks.

    Shred the pork and place into a large pot over medium heat. Mix the meat with the barbecue sauce. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until the flavors have blended, about 30 minutes.

    Option: Carolina Mustard Barbecue Sauce

    This option omits barbecue sauce and skips the last cooking step in favor of topping the pork directly with Carolina mustard barbecue sauce.

    Ingredients:

    • 1½ cups prepared yellow mustard
    • 1 cup honey
    • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
    • ¼ cup ketchup
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 2 teaspoons hot sauce

    Directions:
    In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix well. For best flavor, make at least a day ahead of usage.

    Serve with pulled pork or barbecued brisket.

    This recipe comes to us from Janet Wolkenstein
    Perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas). Note this recipe has 2 parts: cornbread croutons, and the stuffing ingredients after the croutons
    are made.

    Cornbread croutons:
    2 cups yellow corn meal
    1 tablespoon sugar
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1 cup skim milk
    ¼ cup vegetable oil
    1 egg, beaten
    Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and stir together until evenly mixed. Stir in milk, oil, and egg, and mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into a greased large cookie sheet to form a thin (¼ inch, approx.) layer. Bake at 400 for 10-15 minutes until done, (be careful not to overcook the bottom). (If the top is still very light when the underside is done, you can put the pan under the broiler for a few seconds to lightly brown it, if necessary.) When cooked, remove from oven and, using a pizza cutter, score the sheet of cornbread in a grid pattern with each cut being about ½ inch wide. Let cool and break apart to form ½ sized croutons.
    Stuffing Recipe:
    1 batch cornbread croutons as above.
    1 - 12 oz roll of Jones Original breakfast sausage (can use another brand if you like, but Jones tastes good and has no artificial ingredients or gluten).
    2 stalks chopped celery (optional)
    ¼ cup lightly chopped walnuts (optional)
    salt
    pepper
    marjoram
    sage
    thyme
    garlic powder
    Crumble sausage into small pieces and cook in pan, draining well when done. Mix cooked sausage with croutons in large plastic or Ziploc bag, making sure they are evenly intermixed. Add chopped celery and walnuts if desired (can use more or less walnuts or celery if you are particularly partial (or not) to one or the other). Mix evenly. Add pepper, sage, thyme, marjoram, and garlic powder to taste. ( I use a few shakes of each from the spice containers, mix, taste, and adjust as necessary.) Save the salt for last; you may not need to add any since the sausage is moderately salty already.
    Also, if you use a large Ziploc type bag to assemble the ingredients, you can just shake it well when you add each one, and it gets things blended easily. Just make sure its sealed properly or else you will have stuffing EVERYWHERE!
    This will make enough stuffing for one large bird, or one small bird plus an extra small pan that you can bake on the side.

    It's just not a holiday meal without gravy. Gravy is the thing that unites the holiday meal. Gravy pulls the meat and the stuffing and the potatoes together. Gravy makes it all good. This recipe makes a rich, savory gravy that will have all your holiday guests smiling! Makes enough gravy to serve about eight to ten people.
    Ingredients:
    1 pound turkey giblets and neck
    1½ quarts gluten-free chicken stock (low sodium is fine)
    2 carrots, chopped
    1 stalk celery, chopped
    2 cups water
    1½ cups pan drippings from roasted turkey
    4 tablespoons of corn starch (approximate)
    Note: One tablespoon corn starch (1/4 ounce) thickens one cup of liquid
    2 tablespoons tomato paste
    2 tablespoons cranberry sauce
    Salt and ground black pepper to taste
    Preparation:
    While the turkey is roasting, place the turkey giblets and neck into a large saucepan with the carrots, celery, water, and chicken stock.
    Bring to a boil over medium heat, skim off any foam that rises to the top, reduce heat to low, and simmer the stock for 3 hours.
    Skim off the fat, strain the stock, and set aside. There should be about 4 cups of stock.
    Take carrots and celery and press through a strainer. Spoon strained carrots and celery into the stock and stir.
    Skim off and discard all but ¼ cup of the fat from the drippings in the roasting pan, and place the roasting pan over medium heat.
    Whisk in the corn starch, then heat and stir the corn starch mixture until it becomes pale golden brown, about 5 minutes. To avoid lumps, mix the starch with an equal amount of cold liquid until it forms a paste, then whisk it into the liquid you're trying to thicken.  Once the thickener is added, cook it briefly to remove any starchy flavor.  Don't overcook.
    Whisk in the stock and tomato paste; bring to a boil, simmer for 5 minutes, then whisk in the cranberry sauce. Simmer for 10 more minutes. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.

    Simply put, this dish is yummy! It’s also an easy way of breaking the ice with okra for anyone who’s yet to try. I love this recipe because it’s such a great base. It’s delicious over rice or with sausage, shrimp, or pork chops. Okra has great texture, absolutely perfect with the soft tomatoes and peppers.
    Ingredients:
    3 cups okra, chopped into ½-inch pieces
    2 cups tomatoes, peeled and chopped
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    4 slices bacon, chopped
    1 yellow onion, diced
    3 cloves garlic, chopped
    A pinch of red pepper flakes
    Salt and pepper, about a teaspoon each
    Directions:
    Add bacon to a large, heated skillet and cook until crisp. Transfer to a towel and add onions to skillet. Sauté until translucent. Add garlic and cook for another minute longer.
    Add okra, tomatoes, and peppers and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Finish with bacon and pepper flakes and serve.

    Celiac.com 07/20/2018 - During my Vipassana retreat, I wasn’t left with much to eat during breakfast, at least in terms of gluten free options. Even with gluten free bread, the toasters weren’t separated to prevent cross contamination. All of my other options were full of sugar (cereals, fruits), which I try to avoid, especially for breakfast. I had to come up with something that did not have sugar, was tasty, salty, and gave me some form of protein. After about four days of mixing and matching, I was finally able to come up with the strangest concoction, that may not look the prettiest, but sure tastes delicious. Actually, if you squint your eyes just enough, it tastes like buttery popcorn. I now can’t stop eating it as a snack at home, and would like to share it with others who are looking for a yummy nutritious snack. 
    Ingredients:
    4 Rice cakes ⅓ cup of Olive oil  Mineral salt ½ cup Nutritional Yeast ⅓ cup of Sunflower Seeds  Intriguing list, right?...
    Directions (1.5 Servings):
    Crunch up the rice into small bite size pieces.  Throw a liberal amount of nutritional yeast onto the pieces, until you see more yellow than white.  Add salt to taste. For my POTS brothers and sisters, throw it on (we need an excess amount of salt to maintain a healthy BP).  Add olive oil  Liberally sprinkle sunflower seeds. This is what adds the protein and crunch, so the more, the tastier.  Buen Provecho, y Buen Camino!

    Celiac.com 07/19/2018 - Maintaining a gluten-free diet can be an on-going challenge, especially when you factor in all the hidden or obscure gluten that can trip you up. In many cases, foods that are naturally gluten-free end up contain added gluten. Sometimes this can slip by us, and that when the suffering begins. To avoid suffering needlessly, be sure to keep a sharp eye on labels, and beware of added or hidden gluten, even in food labeled gluten-free.  Use Celiac.com's SAFE Gluten-Free Food List and UNSAFE Gluten-free Food List as a guide.
    Also, beware of these common mistakes that can ruin your gluten-free diet. Watch out for:
    Watch out for naturally gluten-free foods like rice and soy, that use gluten-based ingredients in processing. For example, many rice and soy beverages are made using barley enzymes, which can cause immune reactions in people with celiac disease. Be careful of bad advice from food store employees, who may be misinformed themselves. For example, many folks mistakenly believe that wheat-based grains like spelt or kamut are safe for celiacs. Be careful when taking advice. Beware of cross-contamination between food store bins selling raw flours and grains, often via the food scoops. Be careful to avoid wheat-bread crumbs in butter, jams, toaster, counter surface, etc. Watch out for hidden gluten in prescription drugs. Ask your pharmacist for help about anything you’re not sure about, or suspect might contain unwanted gluten. Watch out for hidden gluten in lotions, conditioners, shampoos, deodorants, creams and cosmetics, (primarily for those with dermatitis herpetaformis). Be mindful of stamps, envelopes or other gummed labels, as these can often contain wheat paste. Use a sponge to moisten such surfaces. Be careful about hidden gluten in toothpaste and mouthwash. Be careful about common cereal ingredients, such as malt flavoring, or other non-gluten-free ingredient. Be extra careful when considering packaged mixes and sauces, including soy sauce, fish sauce, catsup, mustard, mayonnaise, etc., as many of these can contain wheat or wheat by-product in their manufacture. Be especially careful about gravy mixes, packets & canned soups. Even some brands of rice paper can contain gluten, so be careful. Lastly, watch out for foods like ice cream and yogurt, which are often gluten-free, but can also often contain added ingredients that can make them unsuitable for anyone on a gluten-free diet. Eating Out? If you eat out, consider that many restaurants use a shared grill or shared cooking oil for regular and gluten-free foods, so be careful. Also, watch for flour in otherwise gluten-free spices, as per above. Ask questions, and stay vigilant.

    Celiac.com 07/18/2018 - Despite many studies on immune development in children, there still isn’t much good data on how a mother’s diet during pregnancy and infancy influences a child’s immune development.  A team of researchers recently set out to assess whether changes in maternal or infant diet might influence the risk of allergies or autoimmune disease.
    The team included Vanessa Garcia-Larsen, Despo Ierodiakonou, Katharine Jarrold, Sergio Cunha,  Jennifer Chivinge, Zoe Robinson, Natalie Geoghegan, Alisha Ruparelia, Pooja Devani, Marialena Trivella, Jo Leonardi-Bee, and Robert J. Boyle.
    They are variously associated with the Department of Undiagnosed Celiac Disease More Common in Women and Girls International Health, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America; the Respiratory Epidemiology, Occupational Medicine and Public Health, National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom; the Section of Paediatrics, Department of Medicine, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom; the Centre for Statistics in Medicine, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom; the Division of Epidemiology and Public Health, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom; the Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom; and Stanford University in the USA.
    Team members searched MEDLINE, Excerpta Medica dataBASE (EMBASE), Web of Science, Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), and Literatura Latino Americana em Ciências da Saúde (LILACS) for observational studies conducted between January 1946 and July 2013, and interventional studies conducted through December 2017, that evaluated the relationship between diet during pregnancy, lactation, or the first year of life, and future risk of allergic or autoimmune disease. 
    They then selected studies, extracted data, and assessed bias risk. They evaluated data using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE). They found 260 original studies, covering 964,143 participants, of milk feeding, including 1 intervention trial of breastfeeding promotion, and 173 original studies, covering 542,672 participants, of other maternal or infant dietary exposures, including 80 trials of 26 maternal, 32 infant, or 22 combined interventions. 
    They found a high bias risk in nearly half of the more than 250 milk feeding studies and in about one-quarter of studies of other dietary exposures. Evidence from 19 intervention trials suggests that oral supplementation with probiotics during late pregnancy and lactation may reduce risk of eczema. 44 cases per 1,000; 95% CI 20–64), and 6 trials, suggest that fish oil supplementation during pregnancy and lactation may reduce risk of allergic sensitization to egg. GRADE certainty of these findings was moderate. 
    The team found less evidence, and low GRADE certainty, for claims that breastfeeding reduces eczema risk during infancy, that longer exclusive breastfeeding is associated with reduced type 1 diabetes mellitus, and that probiotics reduce risk of infants developing allergies to cow’s milk. 
    They found no evidence that dietary exposure to other factors, including prebiotic supplements, maternal allergenic food avoidance, and vitamin, mineral, fruit, and vegetable intake, influence risk of allergic or autoimmune disease. 
    Overall, the team’s findings support a connection between the mother’s diet and risk of immune-mediated diseases in the child. Maternal probiotic and fish oil supplementation may reduce risk of eczema and allergic sensitization to food, respectively.
    Stay tuned for more on diet during pregnancy and its role in celiac disease.

    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.
