Dietician At Our Celiac Sprue Association Mtg Today

Recommended Posts

Today we had our Celiac Sprue Association meeting in Colorado Springs and had a dietician speak. The ideas she had were endless for packing lunch ideas. I have gotten in such a rut and she opened up my mind to so many other things that I have had and loved but forgotten. Lots of new things too. I had to stop at King Soopers on the way home and get some of the stuff. For a BBQ tonight I made stuffed grape leaves that everyone fought over and a gluten-free pasta salad with kidney beans. For lunch I made a lettuce wrap with homemade hummus, turkey, onion, roasted peppers, shreded cabbage, toasted sesame seeds and tomatoes it was sooooooo good. Then for a snack tomight I had a rice cake broke in 3 and had cashew butter, fire roasted chilie jam and some laughing cow cheese. One of the things I thought was interesting was when she talked about certain foods being inflammitory foods and the non inflammitory foods. I will have to look at that some more.

One of the yummy things I learned about was Tampenade=crushed olives and very flavorful. I put in everything today.

Tomorrow I am looking forward to grilling some leeks, peppers, and squash. I can't wait to play again.

Now I will probably dream about things to make for tommorrow. Like what to do with the eggplant I bought. Baba Ganoush was what she was talking about.

I am curious as what are considered inflammatory foods and what are non-inflammatory foods?


carbs without protien



non inflamm

Plant based protiens like


split peas


some nuts and seeds

I am going to have to research to get more. I may even try to get a copy of the speakers notes. I bet once I do a searchon the internet lots more will come up.

Have a great week.
