How Do You Own Your Health?

December 3rd, 2012 by Ilise Ratner

This is the article I wrote on Health and Wellness for the Autism Community Magazine. 

I recently heard Rebecca Onie speak on TedTalk about the current healthcare system in the US. She poses the questions: “What if our health care system kept us healthy? What if waiting rooms were a place to improve daily healthcare? What if doctors could/would prescribe/facilitate diet and lifestyle change and improve health?” The work the patient needs to do is not done after the prescription is

Gluten Free Cranberry and Hazlenut Biscotti Recipe

November 30th, 2012 by Lois Parker

gluten free cranberry hazlenut biscottiThese hazlenut biscotti have a warm, complex flavour with a lighter texture than my usual biscotti.  They have a hint of cinnamon but if you want a spicier flavour just add more spice, perhaps with mixed spice or ginger as well as the cinnamon.  If you like an iced biscotti, making a glace icing with icing sugar and ginger wine would work well.

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!

Leftovers… Try Gluten-Free Turkey Tortilla Casserole

November 28th, 2012 by Teri Gruss, MS

Hopefully you don't have one shred of leftover turkey hanging out in your refrigerator today. But just in case you do, our recipe for gluten-free turkey tortilla casserole gives the last vestiges of the old bird a flavor facelift.

Think of this recipe as a delicious, out-of-the-ordinary "lasagna" made with gluten-free corn tortillas and healthy

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."
