Cooking Out This Memorial Day?

American Flag

Remember Those Who Fought For Freedom, including from Gluten!

Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer approaches!  While we want to share some gluten free items, we also want to briefly reflect on Memorial Day.  Remember why and who we memorialize today.  The US is a great country, we all should be thankful for those who fought for our lifestyles!

So many of you will probably grill this weekend.  Looking for gluten free items?

Hot Dogs.  Lots of gluten free options–we like Nathans and Hebrew National.  Make sure you read labels on whatever brand you buy though!

How about grilling out chicken sausage?   Look for that here: http://www.raleighcelkids.com/?p=1889

Hamburgers?  Bubba Burgers here: http://www.raleighcelkids.com/?p=57

Don’t forget dessert.  While the grill is hot, fire up some Smores with gluten free graham crackers.  Smores: http://www.raleighcelkids.com/?p=585

    Does food sensitivity,allergy or intolerance get passed through to us in the eggs, chicken and beef we eat? Other words, if the chicken eats wheat or corn do we get some of that in our bodies after ingesting

    Thanks for all you do… Chris Luckwaldt

    Great question. Yes, I would assume things like wheat and corn do get passed on through animals that we in turn consume. However, the lucky thing for us is these allergens would be at such a low level that routine eating would not effect us. When you look at gluten free items, we put a ‘parts per million’ on things that are gluten free. Something like 20 or 30 ppm of gluten is considered gluten free, since it would not effect most Celiacs. However, if you consume that or wheat-fed animals in high quantities, it probably would affect you. But thankfully, we do not, so for the most part, things like that are safe for normal sensitivity to gluten.
