Today I was kinda watching the Food Network ( I watch it all day ) its always on in the backround. I kinda keep one ear on whats on the tv and whats going on in my house.

Rachel was on tv today at her usual time here 230 pm. She was making one of her famous stoups. I dont even know which one it was.

She always talks about the broth that you can buy in the stores already made for a great time saver.

Today, however, she was talking about her beef broth and she mentioned that the broth was gluten free!

I have never heard her or anyone else on the Food Network do that. I was so impressed!! It seems we are making a difference with our letters and such.

I just had to share this!! :)

Thats great! I am hoping as the years pass that celiac will be more recognized. So far this group is about the only thing thats making me feel normal lately, (recently diagnosed). Although I was in wendy's the other day, while waiting at the counter for my food a woman came in and started ordering the bunless burger, saying she had allergies, so on and so on. It was nice to see that I'm not the only person making some poor teenager behind the counter at wendy's life hell. :blink: I'm hoping as someone mentioned before here that rachael ray or someone would do a gluten free segment on their show, that would be wonderful!

I watch Rachel Ray all the time and yes, she does mention when certain ingredients are gluten free, and it usually the chicken and beef broths that she uses. Occasionally she'll mention that a veggie dish is gluten free or something like that. I like her show.

I normally can't stand her, especially on her show $40 a day; I mean c'mon, you can't have an orgasm over every morsel you put in your mouth. But I may have to change my mind on her. <_<

OMG jillian! I feel the same way about that show. She absolutely loves everything she eats. My b/f said what would she do if the dish was gross? spit it out? she does that on her regular show too.. 30 minute meals.

yeah, Rachel Ray eats on $1200 a month. I despise shows about eating out. Anthony Bourdain in particular - chef, food critic, and ugly American. I guess he maintains that refined palate by smoking 3 packs a day.

I watched her show yesterday I think it was with oprah on it. She is annoying isn't she? She was a nervous wreck though, and trying way too hard, I had to change the channel I couldn't stand to watch someone crack so badly!

I watched her new talk show for the first time today and she definitely seemed way nervous, but she seemed to do better as the show went on. By the end of the show, I was enjoying it. I like the format. I like that she still does a lot of food stuff, but isn't boxed into something like the 30 minutes or the $40 and I like that she does other fun things. I thought the CSI set visit was hilarious. I've always been lukewarm on her cooking shows, but I think I'll watch it.

Remember what a mess Dr. Phil was the first couple weeks on his show? I didn't think he would make it past the first season.

Has anyone ever noticed that on $40 a day she totally shortchanges the tip ALL THE TIME? She bugs me...so I have to find fault with her. Also, I find it odd that she mentions her broths are gluten-free as all of her products are "made up". I saw on "FOOD NETWORK UNWRAPPED" (I watch too much tv, okay) that she doesn't advertise the products she actually uses so there is someone who is employed to create and design the wrapping and packaging for all her products (to cover the real product). So...is she implying all broths are gluten-free? I think its actually not as great as it may seem!

lol, ya me too...You know the episode I watched she really was just spazing out at first with her nervousness, it was just sad to watch! I did start to enjoy it after oprah and her sat down to chat and eat the food they made. If you think about it though, she had her first week on her new talkshow, and the big O was her guest that day, I would have been nervous too.

I too saw a show where she mentioned the broth is gluten free and I was puzzled because she didn't show the brand & that's important to me, of course. It gave me impression too that had I not known, I would have thought that all broths are gluten-free.

I think FN should run a nice half hour show maybe once or twice a week about cooking gluten-free. Basic 101 gluten-free receipes and tips, hints and info like how to avoid cross contamination, etc.

I can't stand her. I don't get her appeal at all! My friends love her and will force me to watch her - she doesn't even make anything all that impressive and her cook books stink! :blink:

I like her show, "30 Minute Meals", and even her other shows on the FN, although those I haven't seen very often.

I don't care for her new show so far--maybe it'll grow on me, or she'll settle into it (and settle down some!) :ph34r:

    • You are a mom with a child who has an autoimmune disease that fortunately can be managed with diet.  It is your family's job to protect your son.  Most of that responsibility falls to you, your husband and your child.  It is very hard to completely understand the gluten free diet unless you are living it every single day.  But there are things that you can do. Send them some information via email about celiac disease and the diet prior to your arrival.  Hit the ground running the very first day to obtain food and the necessary tools to prevent cross contamination.  Keep those items in a storage bin located out of the kitchen.  Have a family meeting on the first day.  Tell them nicely and with love that you need to do all of these things to keep your son safe.   If they are not supportive, well, for me, it would be our last visit home.  It is that simple.   Luckily, my family has been supportive.  We go home for weeks at a time.  I have a bin, systems in place and hubby and I are kept safe.  I watch all food preparation and we hit the buffet first and only once.  We manage well at my parent's house and even at the family lake house where there are tons of gluten eaters.  We have a few others in the extended family who have allergies as well.  So everyone is careful.   Do they think I go over board?  Of course.  But I am an adult and my health and hubby's comes first.  it has taken some time, but they now feel comfortable with us just ordering a drink if they occasionally choose a restaurant that is not safe us.    After all, it is all about relationships and not food.  
    • Start taking to them now about the seriousness of him staying gluten free. You have to get them past that point of thinking you are being irrational. Send them articles talking about what it's like to be glutened. You've got to make this normal and you have the time now to do it. Be firm.  I've had too many dinners in the past with my husbands family that doesn't care or care to even understand about my issues where they actually told me things were made without flour, but I reacted. Badly. They still don't care but now I just don't believe them, lol. But with a child hopefully they do care and do want to understand. You have to make them realize he is going to SUFFER if he gets glutened. And you don't want your son to hear little snide comments either. You've done a good job normalizing it for him in your environment. Hopefully you will be able to prepare them now so you aren't walking into a war zone then.    
    • You can keep down the clutter by bringing a set of Nordicware microwave cook ware, r roll of butcher/freezer paper (makes gluten-free safe prep area on top of counters, tables, and a nice eating mat) spatula, plastic utensils, and perhaps a small griddle. I normally just do stuff that way and bring at home made muffins, cookies, etc to make myself feel good. I tend to stick to whole food omelettes and the premade stuff I bring to keep it simple and easy. PS the nordic ware has steamer dishes, rice cookers and microwave grill plates so you can cook salmon, rice, steamed veggies chicken all in a microwave.  I did a huge post a few years ago about me hosting my families thanksgiving. I even had instructions on how to make the turkey, and dressing.
    • Good to hear you tapered with your doctors assistance. Many drugs are very dangerous to stop suddenly and not just in terms of the withdrawl.  I tapered off all meds also at diagnosis and have only had to add back in my 'as needed' Alprazolam. I take that for something not celiac related though. Things can be up and down for a bit when we go gluten free. Hang in there.
    • My 13yo son was diagnosed by biopsy in August of this year.    We have not had to travel since he has been diagnosed.   I am concerned with holiday travel coming up.   My husband wants to visit his parents this year for our kids Christmas break but, I'm concerned about my son getting "glutened" while we stay at my in-laws.    I already know that they will think I'm being irrational if I insist on bringing a toaster and cookware for my son's meal prep.   They won't understand about him not being able to use the communal butter dish or serving utensils.   Fortunately, my sister-in-law says that there are gluten-free options at their small grocery store.   But, I'm worried about what to do, say and generally how to handle this.   I don't want to ruin my family's vacation.   I want to show my son that his life doesn't have to stop because he has Celiac.    I want him to still be able to travel and visit his friends and family! Any good advice out there as to how to handle this with my in-laws and how best to ensure my son doesn't get glutened without offending anyone?
