    Hearty Harvest Oatmeal (Gluten-Free)

    If you're like me, the recent cold weather has you longing for the heat waves of the past summer.  While grabbing a piece of fruit or even a refreshing smoothie on your way to work might fly during the summer, chilly winter mornings call for something much warmer before leaving the house.  This is a recipe for an easy-to-prepare oatmeal dish that mixes plain oatmeal, Konsyl Original Fiber supplement, pecans, syrup and whatever else you enjoy to give it an extra savory kick.

    Gluten Free Oatmeal Photo - CC-MuffetHarvest Oatmeal is also a great meal because it can accommodate many allergies.  If you're lactose-intolerant like me, changing the type of milk used in the recipe to coconut, almond, lactose-free or another version won't affect the final taste.  And if you're allergic to pecans or other nuts, they can be left out without subtracting from the deliciousness of the recipe.  Feel free to substitute or add any other garnishes of your choice - the maple syrup in this recipe is a personal favorite. I actually prefer the taste of sugar-free syrup, so if sugar is a concern for you, that’s one easy way to modify your diet.

    Your mom always told you that oatmeal was a great meal, and she's right.  Plus, making your own oatmeal feels great because the end result is delicious AND you can mold it to your own specifications (shh, don't tell anyone how easy it is!).  The oats warm you up right away, the Konsyl helps you feel full and aids your digestion, and the maple syrup and other delicious toppings mean that breakfast feels more like a treat rather than a chore.  And, because there’s no real cooking involved, just heating, this is a great meal for those on the go.  Hope you enjoy!

    Ingredients:
    1 cup cooked, old fashioned gluten-free oatmeal
    1/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
    1 tbsp milk (coconut, almond or otherwise)
    1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
    1 tsp real vanilla extract
    1 rounded tsp Konsyl Original psyllium fiber
    Maple syrup, pecans, dried cranberries or raisins for toppings, if desired

    Directions:
    Heat cooked oatmeal in pan on stove top or in microwave until just warm.

    Add the milk, pumpkin, spices, vanilla and Konsyl Original.

    Mix well and reheat.

    If it is too thick, add 1 tbsp hot water at a time and stir until desired consistency is reached.

    Top with syrup, nuts and dried fruit to your liking. Makes two servings.

    It looks like it would taste better than any other oatmeal as it is fully loaded with nuts, fruit, brown sugar anything goes! I would give this a try on a cold blustery morning......Brrrrr!

    I have heard that even though oats may possibly be safe for celiacs, they are very often contaminated with other cereals, and often even in the field, in transport, milling, etc. Therefore oats should be treated with caution: from what I have read, only oatmeal and oat products fully certified gluten free and labeled safe for people suffering celiac disease should be eaten.

Stir in buffalo (do not over mix) and form mixture into a 10 inch x 4 inch oval loaf and place in a shallow metal baking pan. Toss onions and cut vegetables with remaining oil, salt and pepper to taste, and then scatter around meat loaf. Bake in the middle of the preheated oven for 1 hour 10 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted 2 inches into the center registers 160F.
    Transfer meat loaf and vegetables to a platter and let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
    While meatloaf is standing, make sauce by deglazing the baking pan with water over moderate heat, scraping up brown bits. Strain sauce through a fine sieve before serving.
    Serve meat loaf with vegetables and sauce.
    Serves 4-6

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
