Moist and luscious, gluten-free carrot cake with cream cheese frosting is a gluten-free favorite at my house. The cake freezes well and the recipe makes one round layer cake, one 13×9-inch sheet cake or 36 cupcakes. Three cups of grated carrots add healthy carotene, a nutrient that the body uses to make vitamin A. Not bad for a cake!

I have been a fan of GoPicnic meals for years and I am thrilled that Regal is adding
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.

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
