Want to know more about coeliac disease or gluten intolerance, or how about what foods contain gluten and what foods do, but shouldn’t?
What about my story and how I came to discover I have Coeliac Disease, and how I adjusted to my new lifestyle?
Well you have come to the right place – the “General Information” category.
I am going to take a moment here to let you all know that it is Celiac Awareness Month in Canada and the US (possibility other countries as well…).
I personally believe that we need to raise a lot more awareness about celiac disease and the symptoms to look out for. Whilst there is a lot more awareness than there was when I was diagnosed in 2009 there is still a long way to go.
For me, I suffered for at least two years before being diagnosed. All the doctors wanted to do was offer me a quick fix; antibiotics for tonsillitis (which More >

Want to know why gluten free bread just doesn’t taste the same as the glutenous kinds? The ladies from Bready give us an insight….

I just wanted to let you all know that I am currently in the US (where I will be for the next three months). I am having a few teething issues with my new netbook and images so while I am trying to sort it out there will be a lack of posts. Good news is that there is a lot of food I can eat here
A little while ago I did a post on quinoa porridge with banana, however I thought that I would revisit the concept of quinoa porridge for two reasons: 1) it is definitely feeling like porridge weather and 2) I have come across a bit of debate recently about whether oats are in fact gluten free or not.
I was made aware of Bob’s Red Mill a company based in Oregon who label their oats as being uncontaminated and therefore gluten free. I was interested to see this as I had always been told that oats, even when uncontaminated, aren’t gluten free. I More >
