Great, Patti! I haven't seen her new show and don't know much about it. You'll have to let me know!

I caught the tail end of her show today and she was talking about tomorrow's show. She said she was cooking for a kid who had allergies to peanuts, and a few other things, but she didn't say anything about wheat or gluten. Still, maybe the topic will come up - we'll keep our fingers crossed!

I've had it on in the backgound :D

Rachel said that they've gotten tons of letters, emails and phone calls about cooking for people with food allergies.

They had a cute little 6 year old boy on named Matthew--who is allergic to soy, dairy and peanuts. Rachel talked to him and his mom about going out to eat (they were a lot like us--she asked for a clean grill, looked at the package of the rolls he wanted, etc), everyday meals at home and things like birthday parties and school.

She and the mom made a recipe--Pizza Burgers--that would be safe for him with his allergies.

She also said that there will be a recipe swap on their website. People can go on to find recipes and post their favorites for special diets.

Got a child who suffers from food allergies? Rachael shows you how to create a meal that anyone can eat and enjoy! Plus, former "bad foods" that are actually good for you.

Sorry for the late notice on this. Just heard about this!

Gluten was not discussed (I think the kid was allergic to everything BUT gluten), but Rachael said that if you had allergy-free recipes of any kind, go on her website and submit them. She will post some of them. So maybe those of you who are good cooks can submit some yummy gluten-free recipes and we'll at least get some net coverage! :)

This is such a coincidence - last Friday I typed a four page letter to Rachael Ray about living with Celiac Disease. There is no way that this could have anything to do with the show today, but isn't it a funny coincidence? Isn't it great to hear public figures talking about food allergies and intolerances?

Thanks for posting this - I would have missed it.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
