Seasoned Gluten-Free Breakfast Hash Browns

October 18th, 2012 by Geanna

 

 

Seasoned gluten-free hash brownsI grew up with small weekday breakfasts and large weekend breakfasts. We ate cereal during the week but on Saturday mornings we'd trek (usually by car, although it was extremely close to our house) to a very small, very local diner called Mama's. Run by an eastern-European family, the diner made such extraordinary breakfasts that we became fast and regular patrons. Although the restaurant is long gone now, and the breakfasts are nothing more than a mere memory to me, I still fantasize about the humongous servings that lasted me much more than

How to Cut Your Gluten-Free Food Costs

October 17th, 2012 by Teri Gruss, MS

We are all feeling the effects of rising food costs.

A recently published study appearing in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics, "Limited availability and higher cost of gluten-free foods," found that gluten-free versions of wheat-based foods cost, on average from 76% to a whopping 518% more. Ouch!

The good news is that there are lots of ways you can cut your gluten-free grocery bill, while staying healthy on a gluten-free diet. Two of my favorite ways to lower my gluten-free food costs include

Sunflower Seed and Kale Pesto

I ate a lot this weekend. Way too much actually…in a good way.

For my Dad’s birthday dinner, my mom and I made Ina Garten’s God-sent Truffled Macaroni & Cheese. Despite the loan she had to take out to buy the truffle butter and exotic mushrooms, it was by far the best mac n’ cheese ever.

Let’s just say, it’s going to be rough getting used to plain ‘ol mac n’ cheese after that eye opening experience.

Now, I’m not advocating going into debt over truffle butter, but if anything is worth over spending, this recipe is it.

We also had some extremely gourmet rib eye. Coated with McCormicks grill seasoning, seared on the charcoal barbeque, and finished off with

The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act passed in 2004 and it required the FDA to set gluten-free labeling legislation by 2008, but here we are in October 2012 with no finalized gluten-free labeling legislation. There is now an open petition on the White House website asking the Obama administration to finalize gluten-free labeling now.

gluten overweight weight gainLately, it seems like more and more celebrities and professional athletes are openly talking about going gluten free. Whether it's due to a diagnosis of celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity, or simply because they want to get healthy, many of them have noted a weight loss as part of the benefits they've been seeing. Then why is it, that so many doctors and specialists will dismiss a diagnosis of celiac disease in a patient simply because the patient is not underweight?

In a recent article by Sonia Kupfer, MD, the belief that people with un-diagnosed celiac disease are all underweight is revealed to

I Got Glutened and It’s My Own Fault!

October 10th, 2012 by Petra Aitken

no glutenI sit here writing this post from my bed. It’s 9:39pm and I have been in bed since 4:30pm. My tonsils are so big it hurts to swallow and I feel like I have been in a boxing match where I lost, severely.

I used to get sick like this all the time before I was diagnosed with coeliac disease and I am starting this think that my immune system is a wreck again.

Why? Because I have been slack. Many of those out there with coeliac disease will think I am stupid. I am stupid.

You see at my current job we have staff cafe.
