Celiac.com 11/17/2018 - This soup works great as a dinner starter. It also works great as a full meal when paired with a salad and some good gluten-free bread. Pair it with half a sandwich for a great lunch. The recipe works great if you happen to have leftover chicken in the fridge. If not, you can use rotisserie chicken or leftover holiday turkey.
2½ cups chopped cooked chicken
5 cups chicken broth
5 cups water
1 cup cream
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cups sliced f...
Celiac.com 11/16/2018 - The best part of being diagnosed with celiac disease is finding out what you or your child has so that you can get back in control and in a position to do something about it. This article is dedicated to “getting back to basics.” Many of you will already be familiar with these topics. Still, every now and then we need to be reminded—for our well being or the well being of our loved ones—we must not take for granted the everyday food items we grab from the shelves or the medications we must take.

Celiac.com 11/16/2018 - I recently discovered an amazing one-to-one gluten-free all purpose flour blend made by Flour Farm. There are other companies making such flour blends, however what has been absent from this space is a healthy version. Most other blends are full of starches and other ingredients that just aren't very healthy.
Flour Farm, however, is made in a 100% gluten-free facility, and it contains only the following organic ingredients: Sweet white rice flour, brown rice flour, tapioca flour, almond flour...
Celiac.com 11/15/2018 - Gluten-free products, marketed as such, were largely unknown 20 years ago, but the gluten-free industry is set to reach an estimated $2.34 billion in sales by 2019. That’s more than double figures for 2014. The growth has been exponential.
What sets gluten-free foods apart from other culinary trends or diet fads is that they address a legitimate health concern that affects millions of people around the world.

Celiac.com 11/14/2018 - You don’t have to be a researcher to figure out that, for all the improvements in gluten-free food products in the last few years, gluten-free foods are still expensive and largely inferior in terms of quality and nutrition compared to their non-gluten-free counterparts. Most of the locally available gluten-free flour products are developed by large U.S. and European companies with global distribution. This can mean high local prices. Higher prices mean that some gluten-free products can remain out o...
I think everyone goes through periods in their life where their interests change. Some are impacted by a move, the birth of a child, a new job or an illness.
Since you are just newly diagnosed, cut yourself some slack. This is the time to take care of yourself. Once healed, you may go back to your other activities or you might not. But that is okay.
Celiac disease is like a chameleon. Symptoms can change. It is one reason getting a diagnosis can be difficult.
Chances are your gut has healed. But if you continue to consume gluten you will start redamaging your small intestine and possibly develop another autoimmune disorder. Celiac disease may go into remission, but there is no cure. Maybe you were misdiagnosed? Were you biopsy confirmed?
Celiac doesn't go away. But, there are a couple of things to consider.
How were you diagnosed? Perhaps it was wrong?
Some people notice that if they are gluten-free for a long time , that a small exposure might not bother them. It could be that they are slow to get an immune response . It could be that they have an immune response but, for some reason, are not feeling the effects. It might take a larger amount of intestinal damage for these people to "fe...
