Gluten Free Awareness On Food Netwok

Recommended Posts

I was flipping passed the food network and it had a woman with celiac who was cooking wonderful looking gluten-free food to let people not only know about celiac but let them in on some wonderful recipes. Anyone else see this??? It said to go to the food network website for more info, but I can't find anything....

That's awesome!!! I have been thinking that it can't be too long before someone over there is either diagnosed or has a friend or relative who is diagnosed.

What did the lady look like? If it's a regular host, I might be able to figure out who it is.

FANTASTIC!! I was just thinking we should all write letters to the Food Network, and maybe they'd start a gluten-free cooking show, but it lookslike they're ahead of me! I haven't looked up their website yet. What time was this (and in what time zone)? Was this a cooking show or a commercial?

I watch the Food Network frequently, as well as visit the website for recipes, and I haven't seen anything about cooking gluten-free. I will keep my eye out for it.

That would be great to have a show featuring gluten-free cooking!

Yea, I'm a Food Network junkie too. :lol:

I was thinking about writing them too to suggest either a program or a special. I was thinking about a program for food allergies and health issues in general, addressing a different one each week maybe. Or successive, in-depth, one hour specials on health issues that diet plays a part of; celiac, casein, diabetes, heart disease, cancer.

I'm so excited that even the word celiac was said on the food network. That they said celiac and recipes in the same sentence is like a dream.

It could also have been a commercial for a show or special coming up in the fall? Hopefully someone will see it again. As much as I watch the food network, I only saw a commercial for Guy Fieri's new show twice I think.

I tried to find an email address for food network, but they say that they get so much mail that they ask you to email the individual show.

this has been talked about on the SillyYaks message board - here is the link to the lady's blog. From what I can tell, what yiou saw was a commercial for a new show that is called "the power of food" and she will be on the show for just one time I think (her name is Shauna James or King - not sure which). No one has been able to find out when it will be on though :(

If I find out I'll post. Hopefully someone will see it advertised with a date and time soon :)

Yes to being on the Food Network, unexpectedly. For all those of you have asked, yes that was me on TV the past few days. The Food Network segment has already started airing, and judging by the numbers of emails that have been coming in the last couple of days, they seem to be airing it several times a day now. It's supposed to be part of a larger program called The Power of Food, which profiles people whose lives have been changed by food. However, they seem to be running a 30-second version of my segment as a stand-alone promo. Many people who have written to me seem to think it is a commercial for my website or for a cooking show I'm going to be doing. Judging by the emotional responses people have been having, it's clear there's a need for a gluten-free cooking show. But as of now, the segment is simply running on the Food Network as a little commercial for Gluten-Free Girl. Goodness. Yes.

    • There was a study where they checked 2 weeks on a gluten-free diet , and antibodies were still going up .  The study wasn't about that, so I think that is why they didn't go any further.   So... looks like 2 months gluten free?  If we think that antibodies are still being made at least two weeks gluten free.... account for the fact that most people need a few weeks to actually figure out and eat gluten-free...I would say it was a bit soon to re- test antibodies.     Edit it to add- if you were tested sept 12 and ate gluten for 6 more weeks before going gluten-free - who knows how high it got.  Shame on your doctor for doing the re- test so soon and discouraging you!  
    • Your numbers should not be going up at all. You are getting gluten somewhere. Do you eat out? Have you read the Newbie 101 at the top of the coping section? That will help you to ferret out how you may be getting glutened. Do you have a gluten free household or is it a shared household? Do you read ingredient labels?
    • Thank you so much!!!! I have a severe allergy, I can not even walk through a grocery store without getting a migraine. I have always used dreft but now I know for a fact that it is safe.
    • I’m 62 and have just now been tested for Celiac.  My Titer was negative, I have zero IGa and too much IGg (16) which is an indicator of intolerance at the very least and may indicate the need for another endoscopy. He also tested for EPI (exocrine pancreatic insufficiency) which was negative.  I just had a colonoscopy/endoscopy last year as a part of being diagnosed w/ Gastroparesis. I also have (among other things which I’m not sure are as relevant) - T2 Diabetes, Hashimotos Thyroiditis (late 30’s) Chronic Kidney Stones (since age 40), Osteoporosis (way before Menopause and not well controlled), and Gallbladder disease.(was removed) I’m discovering that all those I listed may be related in some way, and related to Celiac.  I haven’t seen the gastro doc for followup since the testing (obtained results from lab) so I’m not sure what he’s going to recommend.  Here’s where it gets scary... my daughter has many of the same things. She was just diagnosed with EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) at 32.  She was diagnosed w/Glucose intolerance at 15, had her Gallbladder removed at 20, PCOS at 22, and Gluten intolerance at 30 (no testing, just her gastro’s recommendation). She’s been diagnosed w/Gastroparesis, POTS,  MAST Cell Activation Disorder, Peripheral Neuropathy, (lost use of her bladder and has a neuro stimulator) - all in the last year.  Too much coincidence for me.  This has to be all related. I keep reading more and more studies linking all these things (like EDS and Celiac) together. My daughters  geneticist is blown away by the multiple overlapping and co-morbid conditions we have and tells us it’s not uncommon. She also says research is expanding.  Sadly, the specialist docs seem baffled and can’t even begin to address our issues, and only help to manage the symptoms - sometimes. And every “Disease/Disorder” has a “diet” or protocol, and they are all at odds with each other - very frustrating.  I guess the moral of this story is to let others know that there’s a lot more to all this than meets the eye. Don’t let anyone tell you you’re fine if you have what seem to be strange unrelated symptoms. You’re not crazy. Keep fighting for understanding and knowledge. Be an advocate for yourself, you’re loved ones,  for us all.
