Finding Gluten Free Medications with Pillbox

November 18th, 2014 by John Libonati

pillboxChoosing gluten-free medications can seem like walking through a minefield.

Dozens of manufacturers and arcane lists of unpronounceable ingredients can be overwhelming. Now there is a website that will help you pick the medications based on their ingredients.

The Pillbox website was developed by the United States government to aid in the identification of unknown pills (oral solid dosage form medications). It combines images of pills with appearance and other information to enable users to visually search for and identify oral solid dosage form medications.

Go to the Pillbox Search Page. Enter the name of the medication and list the ingredients you do not want to consume. Then, click the checkbox that says, “Find pills WITHOUT this ingredient.” A list of medications will appear.

Once a pill has been identified, additional information is provided, including brand/generic name, ingredients, and the National Drug File identification number. Links are provided to NLM drug information resources, such as drug labels from DailyMed and the Drug Information Portal, which searches NIH and FDA drug information resources.

Feedback is welcomed regarding this project. Please send comments/suggestions to pillbox@mail.nih.gov.

On nights when I know there won’t be a lot of time to cook, I use this recipe/technique. It's one of my favorite recipes from my book, The Warm Kitchen.

What I love about it is that I can change the flavor profile of the chicken based on what herbs and spices I use. If I’m in the mood for a particular flavor or just want to use up something else, the dish can easily be transformed. I used to just call this sautéed chicken then realized one of its benefits is how quick it comes together. Yes, I timed it...7 minutes!

The chicken has to be either flattened or cut in half in order for it to cook properly in 7 minutes; otherwise, it might take about 12-15 minutes total. Adding some liquid like lemon juice or broth at the end helps to finish the cooking as well. (more…)

Gluten Free Veggie and Egg Quinoa Bowl

In my search for healthier food options that don’t make me feel like I’m missing out on flavor, plus my goal of following Lent to a certain extent this year (a.k.a. not eating meat on Friday), I ended up with this delicious recipe. It’s inspired by The Happy Healthy Hippie and is pretty darn easy, which is always a plus. (more…)

What do you do if you can't eat gluten, dairy, eggs, or nuts and you love dessert?

Your options are quite limited unless you bake everything yourself. But  now, you can buy pies and cookies that are free of those allergens and still taste amazing.

Rudi's Gluten-free BakeryBeing that I am a creature of habit, I am 100% serious when I say that I eat a slice of Rudi’s multi-grain bread every day.

My routine: Wake up. Make omelette. Toast Rudi’s. Enjoy.

So, when I started seeing promotions for Rudi’s new ‘soft & fluffy’ recipe, I was very intrigued and excited for my daily routine to get THAT much better.

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed Rudi’s old formula, and loved nothing more than (more…)

Gluten-Free Thai Chicken Pot Stickers Recipe

January 16th, 2013 by Teri Gruss, MS

gluten free pot stickers recipe

If you have ever enjoyed the experience of eating "pot stickers" before going gluten-free, you know how delicious and fun these savory Asian pan-fried dumplings are. They're fun to make too!

Traditionally pot sticker wrappers - similar to wonton wrappers, are made with wheat flour. While I've thought about attempting to make a gluten-free wonton for some time, it wasn't until I bought Laura B. Russell's cookbook, The Gluten-Free Asian Kitchen that I actually went for it.

Our gluten-free pot stickers will stick to the pan, just like wheat-made pot stickers, so read the instructions carefully and then have fun making this recipe. (more…)

Yes, you did just read that title correctly.

Kimye’s baby and the gluten-free diet have a few things in common. What are they you may ask? Well, here ya go:

It takes about 9 months to grow on you

Just like Kimye’s baby, the gluten-free diet isn’t second nature right when it’s sprung on you. At first you’re completely overwhelmed, thinking of how different life will be now, but you gradually get used to the idea of the whole thing. You get into a routine and oftentimes change your habits.

I’m sure motherhood is the same way (although I don’t want to find out for another 7-10 years). (more…)
