Chelsea Clinton - Gluten Allergy
0

9 posts in this topic

On July 31st, 2010, former president Bill Clinton's daughter Chelsea will be married in Rhinebeck, New York. According to the reports, she has a gluten "allergy", therefore there will be gluten free food for her at the wedding party. Well, I'd like to have a taste of the gluten-free cake, I'd guess that it's going to be the best gluten free cake in history. :rolleyes:

I suspect that she has Celiac, but they'd rather call it an allergy.

Wow! High profile for gluten-free diet!

Is that why the catering bill is going to be so high? ;)

Well, that would explain her porcelain complexion.

I doubt it would be the best gluten free cake in history, but it may be the most expensive gluten free cake in history. In fact, unless it was baked by a gluten free experienced baker, it could be sort of a not so great tasting cake- this is not something I would want to leave to a regular baker unless they were into taste testing the first batches. Imagine some of the dreadful recipes out there.

There's just something about large volume, plain white commercially made cake frosting that is all wrong, too. Ick. Didn't even like it back in the gluten eating days. I think they were using Crisco or something. Bleck. :blink:

Couldn't agree more - American wedding cake = blechh!!! No wonder the bride and groom smash it in each other's faces, gluten-free or not. :lol:

Chances are, if Chelsea Clinton has been gluten-free for any length of time, she's already had gluten-free cakes at her birthday and graduation parties, and she knows where to get the goods. Since we do not know how long it's been since her diagnosis, she may have been eating gluten free food when they lived in the White House, or possibly before that.

This wedding is going to cost up to five million dollars, and they are going to have everything done by the best of the best. She has probably already tasted samples of many gluten free wedding cakes, and chose the one she liked the best.

There are several wedding cake designers in New York and New Jersey who regularly bake gluten free cakes. There's a baker in Kingston, NY, which is not far from Rhinebeck, where the wedding is being held, called The Alternative Baker, that does gluten-free. Since Rhinebeck is only 80 miles from New York City, it wouldn't be any problem to obtain the cake from a NYC cake designer who does gluten-free cakes, such as Sylvia Weinstock Cake Ltd., on Church Street, or JACY Cakes, on West 82nd Street - and if none of those cakes are to her liking, they'll fly in a baker from anywhere in the world to make one.

With Chelsea Clinton having a "gluten allergy" there may be a lot more research done on Celiac. Hopefully a lot more people will start to think it may be the cause of why they are so sick and not getting better. I really believe it is a cause of so many illnesses that doctors are completely missing. Way too many people are suffering when they could easily be cured of their symptoms by being gluten free.

I sure hope Chelsea gets the message out about her "gluten allergy" and if she does have Celiac, she discloses that information in the near future. Having someone in the public eye with this issue can make all the difference for so many others.

Yes, Jackay, she could be a very important link in the direction of possible treatments, alternative dietary needs, and awareness regarding Celaic.

The word is out - Chelsea's gluten-free vegan weddding cake was made by La Tulipe Desserts, Mt. Kisco, Westchester County, NY.

No photos of the cake published yet.

    • I am not diagnosed with celiac. I am however struggling to get through a gluten challenge right now. My symptoms are strange and mostly tolerable compared to others on this board. My main symptoms are a blistery rash (heavily concentrated in one small area - on 4 of my knuckles), joint pain, fatigue and occasional boughts of dizziness and anxiety. All of which suck, but are tolerable in the grand scheme of life. So I have learned that I can drink a beer here and there with seemingly minor consequence. My reaction to beer is mainly just joint pain. If I eat a piece of bread though then my rash starts developing blisters which then keeps me awake at night. If I had to guess as to the reason why that is, perhaps there is less concentration of gluten in a glass of beer than a piece of bread. That's my long winded guess. 
    • You mentioned the fatty liver, so my mind went there right away.  Try your local celiac group for docs.  Or,  https://celiac.org/blog/2017/06/dr-sheila-crowe-becomes-president-american-gastroenterological-association/
    • I can not digest most meats or animal fats, animal wise I only consume egg whites, and once or twice a month have fish or crab. Quite easy, I found many meat subs, like jackfruit, beyond meat crumbles and beef, using cumin in stuff to give it a meat flavor. Making my own cheese sauces and using diary free cheeses all the time. I live on a ketogenic diet of just fats and protein unable to eat sugars or carbs due to UC and it causing flare ups. And allergic to corn, I eat a ton nuts, seeds, egg whites, and green leafy veggies. I go through lbs of almonds and coconut a week, <.< and about 3-4 cartons of egg whites, and 1-2lbs of vegan protein powders. I found a great carb free noodles and rice subs from miracle noodles that are a stable, nutiva butter flavored coconut oil gets used for cooking everything and slathered on julian bakery bread toast which is grain free nut/egg white based bread. I love and have posted my recipes for vegan cheese biscuits and garlic knots in the recipe area. My approach is quite unique since I can not have rice, corn or quinoa, or other carbs. But if you can have them you have many more options then I do.  
    • Hello everyone! I haven't been on the forum in awhile hope everyone is doing well! After about almost 3 months of being gluten free I'm finally feeling quite a bit better. I have so much more energy and just a better outlook on life. I'd say my good days are finally outweighing the bad!   So I had  question (I wasn't exactly sure which topic to classify it as though). Is anyone on here a vegan as well as being gluten free? I have been really getting into eating healthy and working out and I've been watching many documentaries on food. Almost all the ones I've watched say a plant based diet is really the best route to go. So I had been thinking about going Vegan since about March I'd say, I for the most part, am almost a vegetarian (meat is like an occasion). After watching another health/food documentary last night called "What the Health?" on netflix it really made me want to go vegan. In the doc. they explain how the WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION did research and actually classifies processed meat as a "GROUP 1 CARCINOGEN" right next to CIGARETTES!!! They also explain all the cancer, diabetes, and heart disease risks that go along with animal products and how genetics only really play a role about 5% of the time. Now believe me I go into these shows open minded but skeptical since I know there's a lot of bias information out there but this documentary really blew me away. I have a decent background in science (having a bs in animal science pre-vet studies) and everything they say makes scientific sense (to me at least).  How would one go about even being vegan if there is so many grains we cant have? Is there anyone out there thats done this?  Thanks in advance! 
    • I had high antibodies, no symptoms, and a positive biopsy.  I am glad you are getting a second opinion.  I'm glad celiac can be treated (gluten free diet) without a doctor's prescription, since so many doctors do a poor job diagnosing it.
