Celiac and Hookworms?

Did you see the little brief in the Science and Technology part of the News and Observer yesterday? You can see it here, but the gist is scientists discovered that Celiacs injected with hookworms show fewer symptoms of Celiac and gluten complications. You can find a larger article on Science Daily here. In the study, […]

Where’ve We Been?

A little bit of everywhere, to answer the question!  Definitely a busy summer in our family.  We hope to get back to some regular postings, although we are seeing so many great resources out there to help as well.  From other blogs, websites, and apps, the whole gluten-free/Celiac experience is much different when we started […]

GF Quinoa

Surely you’ve all seen the commercial…the guy is tailgating, he throws a quinoa (kwee-no to him, keen-wah to us) burger on the grill.  He gets a little ridicule from his friends, but since it worked last time and his team won, he wants to try again.  Fortunately for us, Quinoa comes gluten free.  You can […]

Gluten Free Yehuda Matzo Crackers

Always interesting to think of Celiacs of certain religions and nationalities.  I always wonder about things like Irish at St. Patrick’s Day, and other things, but especially Jewish Celiacs.  While shopping at Wal*Mart recently, we found these gf matzo ‘style’ crackers.  Pretty interesting.  Of course it clearly states ‘not a replacement for matzo at the […]

Gluten Free Manischewitz Cake Mixes

With all the Spring holidays approaching, we focus on just the Celiac part of things, without thoughts to foods that may be Kosher for those celebrating Passover.  While on a recent trip to Kroger, we found a large variety of Kosher gluten free products from Manischewitz.  From gluten free cake mixes to gluten free crackers, […]

Thanksgiving Is Here!

So any of you last minute shoppers need some help with finding gluten-free items?  I ran across an interesting article in the San Francisco Gate Newspaper (click here).   The author discusses how Thanksgiving can be tough with Celiac Disease: Stuffing, rolls, pies and other tempting dishes can make Thanksgiving one of the toughest holidays […]

Happy Gluten Free Halloween!

We are now rapidly entering that time of year when you cannot go anywhere without seeing seasonally related candy, snacks, and other food.  Tonight our Celiac children will go out into the night and return with mounds and mounds (and, hey, even Mounds or Almond Joy) of candy.  Hopefully you, like us, implement the ‘no […]

Simple Truth (Kroger Brand) Waffles

Starting to see store brand gluten free products really excites me.  We all know gluten free products cost more.  Makes you think, why?  Is rice flour any more difficult to grow and product than regular flour?  Maybe, but maybe some of these gluten free products just cornered the market and did not see competition.  Maybe […]

Boo Berry–Gluten Free or Not?

So with Halloween arriving, we get tempted by all the Halloween candy out there.  As a kid, I remember all the monster cereals quite fondly.  Boo Berry, Franken Berry, Count Chocula…how I loved how each turned my milk all the colors of the rainbow.  Now, though, it seems you can only find them at Halloween […]
