Good Nutrition: It’s What You Eat AND Absorb

May 3rd, 2013 by John Libonati

"You are what you eat."

We teach children this common thinking almost from the time they can speak. It makes sense. The food that you put in your mouth, chew and swallow becomes the person you are.

Most people believe it. So do most doctors.

Well, it may sound logical but it is only partially correct and based on a very iffy assumption.

The assumption is that your body absorbs what you eat.

Glutenfreeworks.com has pressed the truth, namely that you are actually what you eat and absorb. If something like celiac disease is stopping you from absorbing properly, then you are NOT what you eat.

In this important three minute video, Neil Raff, MD concisely explains how what you absorb is just as important as what you put in your mouth. Dr Raff covers the various ways nutrient absorption can be affected and limited. He also touches on a related topic - foods today do not contain the nutrients they provided in the past.

Kudos to Dr. Raff for covering this important topic in this quick and easy-to-understand must-see presentation.

Over 3 million people in the United States have undiagnosed

celiac disease awarenessCeliac disease awareness is desperately needed - now more than ever. 

While the gluten-free diet has exploded in popularity, celiac disease remains massively under-diagnosed.

Why? Two Reasons: 

1. The public has shifted its focus to the gluten-free diet and away from celiac disease due to the media. The media likes diets. Diets sell. Oddly named diseases that are difficult to describe in catchy sound bites don’t sell.

2. Doctors do not have the information they need to recognize, diagnose and treat this common disorder. The information exists but there is no authority that actively ensures

Gluten Free Green Chile and Cheese Omelet

April 29th, 2013 by Amy Fothergill

At one of my favorite grocery stores, they make a chile relleno casserole that is delicious. I found out it has flour so I've been researching how to make it gluten-free at home; it wasn't too hard. Well I just didn't feel like making a full-on casserole so I opted for a puffy omelet instead.

I took a couple of quick pics and decided to share them with you. Sometimes the simplest things in life can be the best. I hope you try it and enjoy it!

Kitchen+Table Gluten-Free Pizza Dough

April 28th, 2013 by Laura Hanley

A good gluten-free pizza crust can be hard to find. Sure, there are a variety of options out there these days, but it can be difficult to find a brand that is decently priced but doesn’t taste like cardboard.

I am happy to say that I have found a pizza dough mix that is reasonably priced, not too difficult to make, and tastes wonderful. There is no questioning that kitch+table pizza dough mix will please your palate. As the package states, incredibly easy and so crazy good that you may not believe it’s actually gluten-free. No false advertisement there. That statement is 100% the truth.

I had a kitch+table baking night this past weekend and my taste-buds had the time of their life. The plan was to make the kitch+table pizza dough for dinner and then the brownie mix for dessert. I mixed up the

Philly is one of the most gluten-free friendly cities in the country. So much so, it's been called "the first gluten-free neighborhood in the U.S."

It takes a lot of components to come together to make a great GF city.

It helps if your state is no stranger to the gluten-free way of life. Earlier this year, Gluten Free Travel Site named Pennsylvania the "World's Most Celiac-Friendly Destination." We examined this accolade in

Say What?! Those Crazy Gluten-Free Misconceptions

April 23rd, 2013 by Candice Rose Clifford

When it comes to the gluten-free diet there are crazy misconceptions out there… thanks to Hollywood and the media! Lets take some time to clear somethings up…OK?

Newsflash, GOING GLUTEN FREE WILL NOT CAUSE YOU TO LOSE WEIGHT!! If I had to guess people who lose weight after going gluten-free are eating healthier or have finally received a proper diagnosis! I’m not a medical professional but these are my thoughts based on some of my own experiences:

When I first went gluten-free I was so afraid of food that I stuck to the foods I knew were safe. This meant I was eating mostly foods that could be found around the perimeter of the grocery store.  Some people refer to this as clean eating, which in fact is better for your overall health & wellness. However, eliminating processed foods also decreases your caloric intake. This is why I dropped weight, which I might add was unintentional since I was already below average.

If you go gluten-free and load up on processed foods like most, it’s just as bad for you as if you were splurging on gluten containing food, or in most cases worse since gluten-free foods are higher in fat and sodium. Life is about balance. Enjoy a slice of cake, but remember to eat your fruits and veggies too.

Grilled Shrimp Tacos with Corn and Black Bean Salsa

April 22nd, 2013 by Jenny Manseau

shrimp-0051I would grill all year-long if I could. This year we had so much crazy snow drifts that it was a bit impossible to do. I love my grill dearly…great flavors, you can grill pretty much anything, its outside with the sun and the fresh air, easy clean up, and less fats are used! We grill steaks, chicken, burgers, hot dogs, hot sausages, shrimp, fish, pizza, and veggies…tons of veggies! Last year I bought one of those little grill baskets for I think $3.00 and it works like a charm, especially for mushrooms.

Last week we got the tank refilled and have used it quite a bit since. We are both trying to get in better shape and eat healthier (a follow-up post to my I’m on a mission…post will appear soon, I promise!). So the grill comes in very handy for
