Vietnamese Happy Crepes (Gluten-Free)


Photo: CC/stu_spivack

This gluten-free, mung bean crepe recipe is time consuming, but if you love crepes as much as I do, you will not care. These mung bean crepes are so versatile, they can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are naturally gluten-free and dairy-free, but they can be made corn-free, and meat free also.

Call your doctor's office and ask them to relay your request to the doctor to amend the test request, they should be able to sort it without an additional meeting and delay. Worth a try anyway I think the Biocard tests TTG IGA and it may give you an indication. Do post your results here as I'm sure others will be interested in its effectiveness. If it's negative however remember that there are several celiac tests for a reason. Some test on one, some on another etc... However my guess is your doctor will dismiss them and want their own testing. That's the usual experience.

Waiting for the EMA, I bet. Keep advocating! this is interesting. If celiac disease is excluded, she might still have a gluten sensitivity. There just is not specific test for that. http://theglutensummittranscripts.s3.amazonaws.com/Dr_Umberto_Volta.pdf

I think all the flavors are all gluten free. I buy them at my local grocery store which is a Kroger store. Amazon has them too. Jenny at "The Patient Celiac" uses them too (she is a preemie doctor who has celiac disease).

Thanks Frieze, I'm planning on filing a complaint in the next few days.

Cyclinglady, where do you get the nuun tablets? Does it matter the flavor is the brand gluten free for all?
