I know I'm really picky about these articles--probably unfairly, as the author might not understand celiac as well if he/she don't have it. But the little things bother me: the "are you eating wheat-free...you're not alone" thing at the beginning for a few reasons: 1) It's also rye, barley, and all forms of these ingredients (malt, spelt, triticum, etc.). 2) It makes it sound like eating gluten-free is the same as eating low-carb.....

It's good to get the word out, though, maybe someone will look up celiac disease and learn more or get a diagnosis. I'm just...very picky/stringent about the details

Oh, by the way, thank you for sharing with us :). I like to read these

Summer time is coming, and with it will be the barbecues at friends houses. I will eat my hamburger with no bun, using a knife and fork, and the ladies will ask me how I like doing the Atkins diet. I will then show them the huge mound of salad on my plate, and educate someone else on Celiac Disease. Articles like this one at the very least get the name of the disease out into the public eye!

Yes--and at least this article doesn't mention someone like that celebrity (in another post) who eats the insides of sandwiches...this gives accurate information, rather than forming an image that falsely portrays the restrictions, difficulty, and importance of contamination.

I like the fact that they mentioned that also thick people can have celiac, not only thin people. Some things are said a little stupid, but to be honest. This is the best-written celiac article (from a layman probably) I ever saw so far. We're getting more publicity. Woohoo :lol:

Hugs, Stef

    • Sounds great, one of my dreams is to open a grain free/gluten free food truck.......stone and mortar places would not do well here, but a mobile one able to cater....LOL dream I know, fundraiser has flopped and been running for a year. Hell I had the quotes up, the whole sale contracts setup, the business model and plan. I even tried to get loans, and business partners.....all flopped.
    • Just opened in Cincinnati, Oh: Ma and Pa's Gluten Free Cafe. Dedicated gluten-free restaurant. I had the pizza hoagie and onion rings last night. I forgot just how oily onion rings were. They sat in my stomach like concrete all night long but tasted great. Next time I'm getting the pizza or pulled pork with slaw and fries.  
    • Nope, had the flu and this has happened before when I ate the chili. JMG, I read the deadspin article. It's pretty funny. First, at least we're not bull testicles(Montana), and second, Skyline is the only one claiming to be gluten-free besides Hormel(sucks) and Amy's(sucks) that is Cincinnati style. There are many other local chili's but none are gluten-free. Gold Star is good but they say they're shredded cheese isn't even gluten-free. Like I said, Cincinnati style is the best. It's supposed to have roots from the Mediterranean area. Gold Star is ran by Syrian family, there is one or two others that are ran by Greeks. I kinda agree with the article when it comes to Skyline but I can walk in a store and buy it in a can. I started to thaw so meat yesterday to give it a go but am out of Cumin. No chili today
    • ....post is 12 years old, please check the dates, On a side note to this topic, I had no gluten issues with tide but it caused itching for other reasons I went with Rockin Green and Mollys Suds for a natural detergent years ago. You get like 70-90loads from a bag try, Amazon, Luckyvitamin, or Thrive for them.
    • Really interesting point Kareng.  In fact, my ttg went up this autumn (November), depressingly, and I saw a nutritionalist earlier this month and she doesn't want to retest til March.  She felt it was too soon for those figures, too.
