September Means Back to School!

Yup, as the classic Staples commercial goes…’It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,’ for parents of course.  Kids are going/went back to school.  For the typical Celiac, this can prove more challenging, thinking of all the random birthday treats, holiday ‘celebrations,’ and of course, school lunches. Our sponsor ‘extraordinaire’ Pat Berger, who also runs […]

General Mills’ Gluten Freely Webpage

Most of you know many of the great gluten free products General Mills produces.  From cereals to cake mixes to gluten-free Bisquick, General Mills definitely committed themselves to the gluten-free space.  With a well-timed reference from our group’s sponsor Pat, I checked their site again recently (http://www.glutenfreely.com/) and was shocked at all the additional resources […]

Chicken/Hamburger Helper Update

Looks like the Betty Crocker experiment with gluten free Hamburger/Chicken Helpers has ended.  A few years ago, Betty Crocker decided to try some gluten free helpers, including the Asian Chicken Fried Rice and some Hamburger Helper flavors (http://www.raleighcelkids.com/?p=885, http://www.raleighcelkids.com/?p=746).  Unfortunately, we saw this Chicken Fried Rice recently at  Walmart.  As you can see at the bottom […]

Pizza, Pizza, Pizza…

Boy, what a week of Celiac/Gluten Free products.  A little testy and heated at times for some of us talking to others.  Of course I refer to the news that both Dominos and Chuck-E-Cheese will offer gluten free pizzas, with Chuck-E-Cheese even offering gluten free cupcakes as well. So what do you all think of […]

Gluten Free at Pullen Park

Over the years, we have become accustomed to bringing lunch and snacks everywhere for our girls.  Whether we go to an amusement park, the airport, or a park, we know we probably will not find many things for the girls to eat.  Pullen Park (Cel-Kids Map) , however, bucks that trend.  The classic park near […]

Chick Fil-A Kids Meals

We recently shared you can now get a gluten free kids meal at Chick-Fil-A.  Well, being the good blogger, I took one for the team and we went to Chick-Fil-A to try them.  (Ok, I love Chick-Fil-A as much as the girls, I confess!!) So we went and the staff definitely knew about the gf […]

Whole Foods Bakehouse Tour: Summary

Well, this will conclude our review of our recent tour of the Whole Foods Gluten Free Bakehouse.  If you missed it, you missed a great time!  Rarely do we go on tours when I cannot stop smiling.  Lee and his staff should be commended for their efforts.  It may seem small, but when we can […]

Whole Foods Bakehouse Tour: Part V

So we reviewed how Whole Foods makes their yummy cupcakes.  The trouble, sometimes, is you may not want a four pack.  We often buy them, take out two, then freeze the rest.  But wouldn’t it be nice to just go and buy them individually?  Whole Foods thought so, and they are beginning to test out […]

Diagnosis of Celiac

About five years ago, when we started to think our oldest daughter may just have Celiac, we did not know what to do.  The landscape has changed drastically since then, but you did not hear much of Celiac.  We completed the blood test, which came back positive.  At that moment, we did not know what […]

That Girl Video

What a great way to share how kids (and adults!) deal with all the non-physical issues having a auto-immune disease.  Definitely worthy of sharing with your older children!    We worry about the physical issues of Celiac, what to eat, what not to eat, but as our Cel Kids grow older, we definitely need to […]
