Gluten Free Food Fair

14 posts in this topic

Just a heads up to anyone in Utah that this Saturday, the 15th is the Gluten Free Food Fair in Orem. It was a blast last year and this year is bigger and at a new venue, so should be worth a trip to Utah county even if you aren't directly from the area. We had vendors from all over the state and even some from out of state last year.

 

It is at the Hamptom Inn in Orem from 10 to 3. I can't think of a better way to spend a Saturday than relaxing and trying new things and chatting with people who "get it."

 

I'm not sure how many Utahns we have here, but I hope maybe I'll "see" some of you there! :D

This isn't even our big one, this is the rinky dink little food fair thing down in Utah County. There will be a HUGE event this fall up in SLC that will probably draw national attention since Jennifer Esposito will be the keynote speaker. That is the one that I'm super stoked about.

I went to one in Rapid City a couple of years ago before the corn intolerance hit. It was fun, yummy, and educational. Wish I could close the shop for a few days and come out, but alas, it's tourist season and I have to be here.

Being self employed is not all its cracked up to be. Sure there are benefits but there are the downsides too. :(

Yeah, I keep telling my self I'm going to take a vacation but so far it's been seven years (exactly seven years yesterday as a matter of fact), with never more than one day in a row off. No, I take that back, I actually took two days off for a blizzard this past winter. It was glorious to be able to sleep in for a couple of days, but shoveling snow isn't my idea of a vacation. :ph34r:

Okay, I have to share this because I can't believe what happened. We all say we try this things that are amazing right? Well I had a donut today that was absolutely to die for. My husband said he wouldn't have known it was gluten free. OMG I thought I would die of happiness as it melted in my mouth! I brought a mix home and can't wait to make them.

 

I also got all sorts of goodies and freebies. And my husband won a drawing for a gift certificate for a local BBQ joint. Woo!!!

 

As soon as the lady who does the donuts gives me a link to her new website I'll be sure to share! I also picked up a red velvet cake mix from her and that will honestly probably get made before the donuts. I am a sucker for red velvet anything. The woman is also the force behind the new (less sucky) formula for gluten free Bisquick, so she knows her stuff. She is simply amazing.

    • So to repeat, you will have to do a gluten challenge which is 12 weeks of eating 1 slice of bread per day for the blood tests or 2 weeks of gluten eating for an endoscopy.
    • I'm celiac for less than 3 months.   I'm starting to get concern about getting all the necessary vitamins being gluten free.   Recently my joint pain has increased, pulsating pain in my head, and sore areas in legs and neck have started recently.  Or course, anxiety too. I'm currently taking a Centrum Men's Multivitamin.  Here's what in it: Vitamin A 3,500 IU (29 % as Beta - Carotene)  70%
      Vitamin C 90mg  150%
      Vitamin D 1,000 IU  250%
      Vitamin E 45IU  150%
      Vitamin K 60mcg  75%
      Thiamin 1.2mg  80%
      Riboflavin 1.3mg  76%
      Niacin 16mg  80%
      Vitamin B6 2mg  100%
      Folic Acid 200 mcg  50%
      Vitamin B 126mcg  100%
      Biotin 40mcg  13%
      Pantothenic Acid 15mg  150%
      Calcium 210mg  21%
      Iron 8 mg  44%
      Phosphorus 20 mg  2%
      Iodine 150mcg  100%
      Magnesium 100 mg  25%
      Zinc 11mg  73%
      Selenium 100mcg  143%
      Copper 0.9mg  45%
      Manganese 2.3mg 115%
      Chromium 35mcg  29%
      Molybdenum 50mcg  67%
      Chloride 72 mg  2% Potassium 80 mg  2%   I really can't believe after being diagnoses that my doctor didn't get me a list of recommend supplements to include the vitamin deficiencies by not having gluten in my diet.   Everyone has to do it on their own. I don't really want to avoid taking a bunch of pills in the morning if I can.   But I'm concerned I'm not getting enough Magnesium and Iron.   Other too? Any recommendations of supplements to increase what I'm currently taking.   Or just on supplement that includes everything I need? Thx.            
    • As far as the grey hair goes, I understand how you feel as I started going seriously grey in my mid 20's also.  As cyclinglady stated, there is nothing you can do about that except color you hair or live with the grey hair.  I chose to color it. Grey hair is generally either a genetic thing or it can be the result of vitamin deficiencies or illness.  It also can't be reversed, which would be heavenly, I agree! You definitely need a full  thyroid panel done because you cannot diagnose Hashi's on antibodies alone.  I have Hashi's so know the drill.  No doctor should tell people to just go gluten free without some level of testing for Celiac.  Those with Hashi's can benefit greatly from going gluten free but that is because those that it helps noticeably also probably do have full blown Celiac.....without Celiac or non-Celiac gluten sensitivity, the gluten-free diet won't help. The supplement you mentioned is just that....a supplement.  If you do have true Hashi's, you'll need more than that to help keep thyroid function normal for you.  I think you need to see another doctor because your doc is missing the boat here.  You really should have a full thyroid panel done and a full Celiac panel.  It is important to diagnosis (or not) these 2 conditions early so you won't have more problems down the road.  Can you request more blood work?
    • Lotions used topically are not a concern at all unless they contain gluten and you ingest them into your mouth.  Gluten has to get into your GI tract, (which begins in your mouth) for damage to occur.  Ditto for hair care products.  As most salons have you bend your head back into a sink to wash, the odds of any shampoo or conditioner getting into your mouth are slim to none. If you shower and let the soap and water run down your face, then make your home shampoo/products gluten free.  
    • YES get the blood test and the endoscope done if you can, if your doctor will put the dia. formally on your records without these then your blessed in a way. I had a similar issues getting mine done. You have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks at least a half slice of bread a day for the antibodies to build up for the blood testing, 2 weeks for the damage etc to show up in a endoscope.
