One Grain More – Les Mis Food Allergy Parody

November 29th, 2012 by Kelly Clayton


The Les Misérables food allergy parody that will knock your hypoallergenic socks off!

With the amazingly popular hit musical Les Miserables coming to theaters oh so soon (only 26 days, but who's counting?!), I thought it would be appropriate to share this funny and amazing "One Grain More" video made by four people who are struggling to cook gluten free.  I loved the line, "This never ending road to gluten free," boy does that seem true sometimes!

Dr. Rodney Ford, pediatrician and author of The Gluten Syndrome, provides us with an excellent and easy-to-follow video that tells us how to know if we need a gluten test.

This short presentation explains which symptoms to look for and tells you the tests you need to to request to find out if gluten is making you sick.

Dr. Ford estimates up to one third of people with chronic diseases are being affected by gluten and sums up why people do not ask to be tested. "We are so used to being sick that we don't know we're sick." People think they have always been this way, so they do not know to ask.

He then establishes a great litmus test to determine who should be tested - "People who are sick, tired or grumpy should be tested."

Every Wednesday I look forward to watching the weekly video of new product reviews from Phil Lempert, The Supermarket Guru, because usually at least one gluten-free product is included in each episode. After scoring a hit (85 and above) of an 88, this Examiner was very interested to sample the gluten-free pizza from Better 4U Foods.

Unfortunately I cannot tolerate dairy or soy and it is quite difficult to find a dairy/soy-free, gluten-free pizza. In steps Better 4U Foods with their dairy/soy free roasted vegetable pizza made with Daiya cheese and a multi-grain crust made with (more…)

Weight loss, fad, miracle cure...there is an enormous amount of misinformation concerning the gluten-free diet in the news, on the internet and even in the medical community.

One of the worst ideas being perpetuated is that following a gluten-free diet can somehow be bad for you.

Dr. Stefano Guandalini, Founder and Medical Director of Columbia University's Celiac Disease Center, answers the important question - Could following a gluten-free diet lead to other diseases?

honeyville almond flourSince I have this brand new bag of blanched almond flour that Honeyville sent me burning a hole in my pantry, I decided to try one of the savory recipes from Elana Amsterdam’s book. My kids love Cheddar Bunnies and Goldfish snack crackers, so I made these cheddar cheese crackers, hoping they’d be something we could all enjoy. I’d never attempted homemade crackers before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how easy they were.

For the cheddar cheese crackers, you’ll need:

2 ½ cups blanched almond flour ¼ tsp sea salt ½ baking soda 1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese 3 tablespoons coconut oil (original recipe calles for grapeseed oil) (more…)

Editor's Note: While Domino's Pizza's new offering is made from certified gluten-free crusts, manufacturing processes cannot allow the company to guarantee that cross contamination does not occur. Glutenfreeworks.com does not recommend consuming gluten to people with any type of gluten sensitivity, whether or not they are diagnosed celiac disease.

ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 7, 2012 -- Domino's Pizza is responding to the needs of choice consumers, today launching a Gluten Free Crust available in all of its nearly 5,000 U.S. stores and becoming the first national pizza delivery chain to offer such a product.

Celiac Disease and Gluten Free Diet Educational Videos

Finding out you have Celiac Disease is a big transition. Often it's a good one that leads to feeling great, yet initially it's a lot of information to take in at once to understand what you need to do for your health. Much of it is because we're been eating one way for 15, 30, 50 or more years and it can be overwhelming to to instantly unlearn everything we've done and change overnight. Wouldn't life be easier if you could take a doctor or dietitian home as a portable reminder of the basics? And so the Celiac Disease Video Project was born.

See below for videos of Dr. John Snyder, Chief of the Department of Gastroenterology at CNMC in DC, Dr. Gary Kaplan, Medical Director of Kaplan Center for Integrative Medicine and Cheryl Harris, MPH, RD Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist discussing testing, diagnosis and follow-up, eating a gluten-free diet and a short segment on when it's not Celiac. Though there are an increasing number of videos out there on people's stories of diagnosis and ways to make a gluten-free pie, this is the first of its kind to do a run-down of the medical and diet basics by healthcare professionals. The Celiac Sprue Association has been kind enough to support the project. (more…)

anti ppm changes australia new zealandIssues of Concern with the undermining of Coeliac Disease care in Australia and New Zealand, the current Trade Practices Act stipulates that only products with no detectable levels of gluten are permitted to be labelled gluten free.

It has recently come to my attention that the Coeliac Society of Australia has not that long ago asked the ACCC to raise the allowable detection limit of gluten laws for a food to be labelled gluten free in Australia. They plan to change it from 'no detectable gluten' (currently <3ppm (parts per million) of gluten) to 20 ppm gluten. This will allow foods with small traces of gluten to be labelled 'gluten free' and meet world labelling definitions as up until this time Australia and New Zealand are of few countries with such strict gluten free labelling laws. In turn, this supposed to make our diets less (more…)
