National Celiac Disease Awareness Day is Today (September 13th)!


Portrait of Samuel Gee. Artist: Charles Vigor - circa 1900

Celiac.com 09/13/2010 - Happy National Celiac Disease Awareness Day! Here at Celiac.com we sometimes forget this special day because to us every day is Celiac Awareness Day!

For those who don't know, each September 13th is the official "National Celiac Disease Awareness Day" due to United States Senate Resolution (S.Res. 563), which was adopted in 2006.

September 13th was chosen for this important day because it is Dr. Samuel Gee’s birthday—who was the first medical doctor to discover a link between celiac disease and a person's diet, way back in the late 1800's. He once said "if the patient can be cured at all, it must be by means of diet."

Celiac.com hereby proclaims that forthwith on this day EVERYONE should eat gluten-free—and everyone should also be sure to hug a celiac! Oh, and don't forget to give thanks to Dr. Gee before eating that gluten-free food—after all, if it weren't for him we would probably all be pretty miserable right now!

I also post recipes of things I have created or altered on the forum blog. I often recreate recipes from my past Working on a low carb grain free cinnamon...

Oh hey, Just wanted to say thanks a million for the tip on adding Almond flour, the flatbread this time around turnout great! First time we tried it came out a little too grainy so this time we added only a little to the Red Mills gluten free flour and it came out just right, appreciate it.

Hi I was just wondering if someone could suggest a good cookbook simple and gluten free... maybe even some tips!
