Gluten free exercise and bones

Exercise retains & improves bone strength!

When you see gluten-free fruit and nut bars in the airport newsstand, you know we’ve come a long way in our society’s awareness of food sensitivities.  In my mere two years without gluten, I’ve gone from stuffing my suitcase with Larabars to ensure I don’t starve while away, to, well, still packing them, but knowing that I likely won’t be completely reliant on them the whole trip.

In addition to newsstand snack options, I recently discovered a Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport restaurant having a gluten-free menu.  I was thrilled!  I would sooner have expected to see a glatt kosher dining area!

The dramatic increase in gluten-free offerings makes me wonder: why the recent influx of news about gluten? Is it that so many more people are getting tested for celiac disease? Are more people questioning their ailing guts and attributing it to gluten? (more…)

Every morning my freshman year in high school, I felt sick. I would miss a lot of first period class & summer swim workouts as a consequence. My mother and I could not figure out what was wrong.

Every day shortly after breakfast, I would get nauseous and have to lie down. One morning, I told my swim coach, who was frustrated with me missing so many workouts, I had “morning sickness.” At the time I was 14 and clueless to the usual context in which that phrase in used. Mom was mortified. I had to clarify to coach that I was not actually with child, and then it was off to the doctor, who confirmed I was likely lactose intolerant, so I stayed off dairy.

Down the road in college, I started getting sick after many meals, and after a few years of searching, I finally got a diagnosis of gluten sensitivity. First milk, now (more…)

Better BatterFROM NAOMI of BETTER BATTER:

To My Customers:

Recently we were advised by our contract manufacturer that they had discovered that one of our suppliers was including a dairy ingredient in one of the components (sunflower oil) used in our pancake and cake mixes.

As you can imagine for a dairy intolerant family like mine, this was extremely disturbing.

We value your health and safety highly, and my commitment to never feed anyone something I cannot feed my own child is absolute.

Any amount of cross contamination with dairy – no matter how small – is unacceptable to us and, therefore I am authorizing a nationwide product recall of all mixes of yellow cake, chocolate cake and our biscuit and pancake mix. (more…)
