    Before I was diagnosed with celiac disease my favorite dish to orderin a seafood restaurant wasFried Filet of Sole. I've tried numerous times to come up with a gluten-free version. Invariably the coating would always come off. I think I've finally come up the solution so the coating sticks.

    Ingredients:
    1 cup orange juice
    2 cups Gluten Free Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal by Bob's Red Mill
    2 tablespoons earth balance natural buttery spread
    1 small Vidalia onion cut into small pieces
    2 teapoons Mrs. Dash Tableblend

    Directions:
    Pourthe cup of orange juice into a gallon baggie then add all the fish,close the top of bag and set aside into your sink for about 8 minutesso the fish absorbs the orange juice so the coating sticks. Then takethe two tablespoons of spread and put on piece of paper towel and coatthe inside of the largest frying pan you have then put on the counter. 

    By this time the fish has absorbed the orange juice.  Pour the twocups of cereal into a gallon baggie, add the onion and the Mrs. Dash,close the top of the baggie and lightly shake for a few seconds so thecereal, onion and Mrs. Dash are thoroughly mixed.  Then take out eachpiece of fish out of the baggie with orange an put into the one withcereal and make sure that each piece is completely covered and then putinto the pan. When all the fish is in the pan put on the stove over alow flame, each side takes about 9 minutes to become a golden brown and crisp.

    When finished serve with several pieces of lemon on the side with a baked potato and salad. 

    Enjoy!

    July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day. As such I am sharing this gluten-free fried chicken recipe. Gluten-free fried chicken is not much different than wheat battered fried chicken, it is simply made with gluten-free flour instead of wheat. The nice thing about this particular recipe, is that it can be egg free or dairy free by using eggs instead of buttermilk and vice versa. However, it is not  recommended to be both dairy and egg free.
    For best results use pieces of dark meat. This will make it easier to bake and fry your chicken. Although, if you prefer white meat, it works fine with this recipe too. Although you will need to bake large chicken breasts for an extra five to 10 minutes. Brining the chicken is optional but will yield unbelievably tender meat. Cooking time, when right, requires no *brining.

    Fried Chicken (Gluten-Free)
    Serves: 4-6
    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Cook Time: 45 minutes
    Ingredients:

    2 lb. chicken thighs or drumsticks, bone-in ½ cup kosher salt or ¼ cup table salt (for soaking chicken-optional) 2 cups  rice flour or  millet flour, divided 1 ½ cups buttermilk or 3 eggs, beaten dash paprika dash cayenne pepper salt and pepper, to taste oil for frying (approx. 4 cups) Preparation:
    *(Optional): Place chicken in a large bowl. Add 2 qt. water and ½ cup kosher salt or ¼ cup table salt. Allow mixture to sit in refrigerator for two to three hours, then drain and pat dry. This process, called brining, will force salt and water into the chicken and make it more tender when cooked. Preheat oven to 325 F. Grease a baking dish large enough to hold all the chicken in one layer with your choice of butter, oil, or allergy-safe cooking spray. You may also use a nonstick baking dish. If you don't have a large enough dish to hold all the chicken, prepare two dishes. Set out three large, shallow bowls. Fill the left-hand bowl with 1 cup flour, the middle bowl with the buttermilk or beaten eggs, and the right-hand bowl with the remainder of the flour, salt and pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper. Stir the right hand bowl to combine the spices. Set the prepared baking dish or dishes beside the dredging area. Dredge the chicken by dipping each piece into the left-hand bowl, coating on all sides, then shaking gently to remove excess flour. Dip flour-covered chicken into buttermilk or egg until covered on all sides, then allow excess liquid to drip off. Finally, dip chicken into the seasoned flour and shake off. Place dredged chicken into the baking dish. Repeat until all chicken is dredged. Bake dredged chicken for 20 minutes, or until coating starts to turn light brown. Remove from oven. In a large skillet or wok, heat enough oil to submerge chicken halfway over medium-high heat. Fry all pieces, turning once, until thoroughly cooked, about six minutes per side. (If you have an instant-read thermometer, it should read 175 F at the thickest point of your dark meat, or 165 F if you choose to cook white meat using this recipe). Note: Take care to cook your chicken thoroughly and at the correct temperature. Otherwise you may end up with raw meat in the center.

    Fall means apples. Go into the stores now, and you will find a good variety of delicious apples to choose from. Baked apples are one of the easiest, tastiest, gluten-free treats to make during the holidays. I prefer Granny Smiths or Pippins, as their tartness combines well with the sweetness of the filling, and they hold their shape well. But, I've had success with Golden Delicious and Jonathans. I recommend serving these delicious treats with a big helping of vanilla ice cream. Make as many apples as you have people to serve. Scale stuffing accordingly.
    Ingredients:
    4 large tart baking apples, such as Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, Pippin, Jonathan, Jona-Gold, or Rome Beauty
    ¼ cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    ¼ cup chopped pecans, and/or almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, pumpkin seeds, etc.
    ¼ cup currants or chopped raisins
    1 tablespoon butter
    1 tablespoon vanilla
    1 lemon, cut into four wedges
    ¾ cup boiling water
    Preparation:
    Preheat oven to 375°F.
    Wash apples. Remove cores to ½ inch of the bottom of the apples. It helps if you have an apple corer, but if not, you can use a paring knife to first cut out the stem area, and then the core. Use a spoon to dig out the seeds. Make the holes about ¾-inch to an inch wide.
    In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon, currants/raisins, and pecans. Place apples in a 8-inch-by-8-inch square baking pan. Stuff each apple with this mixture.
    As evenly as possible, drizzle vanilla in equal parts onto the stuffing mixture. Squeeze juice from one lemon wedge over the mixture, and top off with ¼ tablespoon of butter.
    Add boiling water to the baking pan. Bake 30-40 minutes, until tender, but firm. Do not overcook, as this will yield mushy apples. Remove from the oven and baste the apples several times with the pan juices.
    Serve warm with vanilla ice cream on the side.

    I love fruit smoothies! I love them for breakfast, I love them for lunch, I love them for a snack, and I even love them for dessert.
    This smoothie is one of the easiest, moist satisfying smoothies I know how to make. It's also quite flexible. You can use so many different kinds of fruits or berries, according to your tastes or what's available.
    For each smoothie take:
    1 banana
    1/2 cup yogurt
    1 cup of whole raw milk, or whole, non-homogenized organic milk
    1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla
    1 tablespoon honey, dissolved in 1 tablespoon wam water
    1/2 cup strawberries
    1/2 cup blueberries
    1/2 cup blackberries
    1/2 cup peach
    1 pinch of sea salt
    Mix ingredients in blender until smooth. Serve immediately.

    Celiac.com 06/15/2018 - There seems to be widespread agreement in the published medical research reports that stuttering is driven by abnormalities in the brain. Sometimes these are the result of brain injuries resulting from a stroke. Other types of brain injuries can also result in stuttering. Patients with Parkinson’s disease who were treated with stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus, an area of the brain that regulates some motor functions, experienced a return or worsening of stuttering that improved when the stimulation was turned off (1). Similarly, stroke has also been reported in association with acquired stuttering (2). While there are some reports of psychological mechanisms underlying stuttering, a majority of reports seem to favor altered brain morphology and/or function as the root of stuttering (3). Reports of structural differences between the brain hemispheres that are absent in those who do not stutter are also common (4). About 5% of children stutter, beginning sometime around age 3, during the phase of speech acquisition. However, about 75% of these cases resolve without intervention, before reaching their teens (5). Some cases of aphasia, a loss of speech production or understanding, have been reported in association with damage or changes to one or more of the language centers of the brain (6). Stuttering may sometimes arise from changes or damage to these same language centers (7). Thus, many stutterers have abnormalities in the same regions of the brain similar to those seen in aphasia.
    So how, you may ask, is all this related to gluten? As a starting point, one report from the medical literature identifies a patient who developed aphasia after admission for severe diarrhea. By the time celiac disease was diagnosed, he had completely lost his faculty of speech. However, his speech and normal bowel function gradually returned after beginning a gluten free diet (8). This finding was so controversial at the time of publication (1988) that the authors chose to remain anonymous. Nonetheless, it is a valuable clue that suggests gluten as a factor in compromised speech production. At about the same time (late 1980’s) reports of connections between untreated celiac disease and seizures/epilepsy were emerging in the medical literature (9).
    With the advent of the Internet a whole new field of anecdotal information was emerging, connecting a variety of neurological symptoms to celiac disease. While many medical practitioners and researchers were casting aspersions on these assertions, a select few chose to explore such claims using scientific research designs and methods. While connections between stuttering and gluten consumption seem to have been overlooked by the medical research community, there is a rich literature on the Internet that cries out for more structured investigation of this connection. Conversely, perhaps a publication bias of the peer review process excludes work that explores this connection.
    Whatever the reason that stuttering has not been reported in the medical literature in association with gluten ingestion, a number of personal disclosures and comments suggesting a connection between gluten and stuttering can be found on the Internet. Abid Hussain, in an article about food allergy and stuttering said: “The most common food allergy prevalent in stutterers is that of gluten which has been found to aggravate the stutter” (10). Similarly, Craig Forsythe posted an article that includes five cases of self-reporting individuals who believe that their stuttering is or was connected to gluten, one of whom also experiences stuttering from foods containing yeast (11). The same site contains one report of a stutterer who has had no relief despite following a gluten free diet for 20 years (11). Another stutterer, Jay88, reports the complete disappearance of her/his stammer on a gluten free diet (12). Doubtless there are many more such anecdotes to be found on the Internet* but we have to question them, exercising more skepticism than we might when reading similar claims in a peer reviewed scientific or medical journal.
    There are many reports in such journals connecting brain and neurological ailments with gluten, so it is not much of a stretch, on that basis alone, to suspect that stuttering may be a symptom of the gluten syndrome. Rodney Ford has even characterized celiac disease as an ailment that may begin through gluten-induced neurological damage (13) and Marios Hadjivassiliou and his group of neurologists and neurological investigators have devoted considerable time and effort to research that reveals gluten as an important factor in a majority of neurological diseases of unknown origin (14) which, as I have pointed out previously, includes most neurological ailments.
    My own experience with stuttering is limited. I stuttered as a child when I became nervous, upset, or self-conscious. Although I have been gluten free for many years, I haven’t noticed any impact on my inclination to stutter when upset. I don’t know if they are related, but I have also had challenges with speaking when distressed and I have noticed a substantial improvement in this area since removing gluten from my diet. Nonetheless, I have long wondered if there is a connection between gluten consumption and stuttering. Having done the research for this article, I would now encourage stutterers to try a gluten free diet for six months to see if it will reduce or eliminate their stutter. Meanwhile, I hope that some investigator out there will research this matter, publish her findings, and start the ball rolling toward getting some definitive answers to this question.

    Celiac.com 06/14/2018 - Refractory celiac disease type II (RCDII) is a rare complication of celiac disease that has high death rates. To diagnose RCDII, doctors identify a clonal population of phenotypically aberrant intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs). 
    However, researchers really don’t have much data regarding the frequency and significance of clonal T cell receptor (TCR) gene rearrangements (TCR-GRs) in small bowel (SB) biopsies of patients without RCDII. Such data could provide useful comparison information for patients with RCDII, among other things.
    To that end, a research team recently set out to try to get some information about the frequency and importance of clonal T cell receptor (TCR) gene rearrangements (TCR-GRs) in small bowel (SB) biopsies of patients without RCDII. The research team included Shafinaz Hussein, Tatyana Gindin, Stephen M Lagana, Carolina Arguelles-Grande, Suneeta Krishnareddy, Bachir Alobeid, Suzanne K Lewis, Mahesh M Mansukhani, Peter H R Green, and Govind Bhagat.
    They are variously affiliated with the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, and the Department of Medicine at the Celiac Disease Center, New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, New York, USA. Their team analyzed results of TCR-GR analyses performed on SB biopsies at our institution over a 3-year period, which were obtained from eight active celiac disease, 172 celiac disease on gluten-free diet, 33 RCDI, and three RCDII patients and 14 patients without celiac disease. 
    Clonal TCR-GRs are not infrequent in cases lacking features of RCDII, while PCPs are frequent in all disease phases. TCR-GR results should be assessed in conjunction with immunophenotypic, histological and clinical findings for appropriate diagnosis and classification of RCD.
    The team divided the TCR-GR patterns into clonal, polyclonal and prominent clonal peaks (PCPs), and correlated these patterns with clinical and pathological features. In all, they detected clonal TCR-GR products in biopsies from 67% of patients with RCDII, 17% of patients with RCDI and 6% of patients with gluten-free diet. They found PCPs in all disease phases, but saw no significant difference in the TCR-GR patterns between the non-RCDII disease categories (p=0.39). 
    They also noted a higher frequency of surface CD3(−) IELs in cases with clonal TCR-GR, but the PCP pattern showed no associations with any clinical or pathological feature. 
    Repeat biopsy showed that the clonal or PCP pattern persisted for up to 2 years with no evidence of RCDII. The study indicates that better understanding of clonal T cell receptor gene rearrangements may help researchers improve refractory celiac diagnosis.

    Celiac.com 06/13/2018 - There have been numerous reports that olmesartan, aka Benicar, seems to trigger sprue‐like enteropathy in many patients, but so far, studies have produced mixed results, and there really hasn’t been a rigorous study of the issue. A team of researchers recently set out to assess whether olmesartan is associated with a higher rate of enteropathy compared with other angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs).
    The research team included Y.‐H. Dong; Y. Jin; TN Tsacogianis; M He; PH Hsieh; and JJ Gagne. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, USA; the Faculty of Pharmacy, School of Pharmaceutical Science at National Yang‐Ming University in Taipei, Taiwan; and the Department of Hepato‐Gastroenterology, Chi Mei Medical Center in Tainan, Taiwan.
    To get solid data on the issue, the team conducted a cohort study among ARB initiators in 5 US claims databases covering numerous health insurers. They used Cox regression models to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for enteropathy‐related outcomes, including celiac disease, malabsorption, concomitant diagnoses of diarrhea and weight loss, and non‐infectious enteropathy. In all, they found nearly two million eligible patients. 
    They then assessed those patients and compared the results for olmesartan initiators to initiators of other ARBs after propensity score (PS) matching. They found unadjusted incidence rates of 0.82, 1.41, 1.66 and 29.20 per 1,000 person‐years for celiac disease, malabsorption, concomitant diagnoses of diarrhea and weight loss, and non‐infectious enteropathy respectively. 
    After PS matching comparing olmesartan to other ARBs, hazard ratios were 1.21 (95% CI, 1.05‐1.40), 1.00 (95% CI, 0.88‐1.13), 1.22 (95% CI, 1.10‐1.36) and 1.04 (95% CI, 1.01‐1.07) for each outcome. Patients aged 65 years and older showed greater hazard ratios for celiac disease, as did patients receiving treatment for more than 1 year, and patients receiving higher cumulative olmesartan doses.
    This is the first comprehensive multi‐database study to document a higher rate of enteropathy in olmesartan initiators as compared to initiators of other ARBs, though absolute rates were low for both groups.

    Celiac.com 06/12/2018 - A life-long gluten-free diet is the only proven treatment for celiac disease. However, current methods for assessing gluten-free diet compliance are lack the sensitivity to detect occasional dietary transgressions that may cause gut mucosal damage. So, basically, there’s currently no good way to tell if celiac patients are suffering gut damage from low-level gluten contamination.
    A team of researchers recently set out to develop a method to determine gluten intake and monitor gluten-free dietary compliance in patients with celiac disease, and to determine its correlation with mucosal damage. The research team included ML Moreno, Á Cebolla, A Muñoz-Suano, C Carrillo-Carrion, I Comino, Á Pizarro, F León, A Rodríguez-Herrera, and C Sousa. They are variously affiliated with Facultad de Farmacia, Departamento de Microbiología y Parasitología, Universidad de Sevilla, Sevilla, Spain; Biomedal S.L., Sevilla, Spain; Unidad Clínica de Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Universitario Virgen del Rocío, Sevilla, Spain; Celimmune, Bethesda, Maryland, USA; and the Unidad de Gastroenterología y Nutrición, Instituto Hispalense de Pediatría, Sevilla, Spain.
    For their study, the team collected urine samples from 76 healthy subjects and 58 patients with celiac disease subjected to different gluten dietary conditions. To quantify gluten immunogenic peptides in solid-phase extracted urines, the team used a lateral flow test (LFT) with the highly sensitive and specific G12 monoclonal antibody for the most dominant GIPs and an LFT reader. 
    They detected GIPs in concentrated urines from healthy individuals previously subjected to gluten-free diet as early as 4-6 h after single gluten intake, and for 1-2 days afterward. The urine test showed gluten ingestion in about 50% of patients. Biopsy analysis showed that nearly 9 out of 10 celiac patients with no villous atrophy had no detectable GIP in urine, while all patients with quantifiable GIP in urine showed signs of gut damage.
    The ability to use GIP in urine to reveal gluten consumption will likely help lead to new and non-invasive methods for monitoring gluten-free diet compliance. The test is sensitive, specific and simple enough for clinical monitoring of celiac patients, as well as for basic and clinical research applications including drug development.
