Celiac 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
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!
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
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.

I 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
This being my second year attending Expo West as media, I was really psyched to see all of the gluten-free products on display and to meet with some of my favorite companies. The event never disappoints and this year kudos goes out to the staff
Millet has been used as food for thousands of years.
Millets – Important Food Source Worldwide:
The millets, a group of thousands of varieties of grass-like annual plants that bear small to miniscule-sized seeds belong to the Gramineae family of plants.Food anthropologists believe that millet was the first cereal plant domesticated by man. Today millet is considered the 6th most important grain crop in the world.
The most common varieties of millet include pearl, proso, foxtail, finger and teff (Ethiopian millet). Millet has been a major source of protein and energy for millions of people in Asia, Africa and India for thousands of years.
I love Springtime. More sunshine, flowers coming up, and I just want to be outdoors…and not in my kitchen. I’m still not used to the longer days, so by the time it starts getting dark and I start thinking about dinner, I’m often scrambling to get food on the table. So it’s a great time to refocus on quick and easy. I love good food, but I’m also big on time savers. For me, that means:
The delivery services from nearby farms, like Relay and Washington’s Green Grocer. (this is in the DC metro area–I’m sure there are similar services around the country) I can get organic fruits, veggies, meats, etc. easily, and Relay also has gluten-free products from Triple Oak Bakery and others.
