Celiac Disease Symptoms

Celiac Disease Symptoms – Courtesy of Gluten Dude

Let’s kick it off with an important image that isn’t ours — Gluten Dude’s Celiac Disease Symptom chart.  This chart is made from symptoms as shared by those diagnosed with celiac, rather than by medical texts, and this is particularly important given that the medical community doesn’t have a great track record with celiac diagnoses.  IF YOU THINK YOU MIGHT HAVE CELIAC, get tested.  Don’t just start a gluten-free diet to see.  You need to be regularly eating gluten for the tests to be conclusive.  Celiac is not an allergy.  It’s an autoimmune disease.  But given that some of the food concerns are similar, we hope our gluten-free recipes will work for our celiac friends, too.

Because that’s kind of depressing, if quite useful, here’s something not food-related but just cool — the work spaces of creative people. (h/t Ruby Bastille)

Sort of obsessed with the idea of tamales lately, and here’s a vegan recipe from Terry Hope Romero.  Just in time for Cinco de Mayo!

And in keeping with that theme, here’s some Quinoa Taco “Meat” from Fork & Beans, it’s gluten, egg, and dairy free, and vegan.

Also coming into the summer season, we all need to cool down with some lovely drinks, and here’s some ice cubes with lemon, berries and mint frozen into them for a yummy treat.

I’m looking for new and interesting things to try, and this Ethiopian Sweet Potato and Lentil Wat with Injera Flatbread looks fascinating. It’s vegan and gluten free, using teff flour to make the Injera Flatbread.

And lastly, a Pear Sorbet recipe that uses white wine, or apple juice if you don’t imbibe.  But it looks really fabulous and easy!

Hope you all are having a fabulous week and if you find cool stuff, let us know.

  1. I have a friend in Derry that has a wonderful business that can help people with celiac. https://www.facebook.com/SweetNeemTastingTable?ref=ts&fref=ts check out her FB link. She does a ‘tasting’ at her commercial kitchen and several dates will offer gluten free ideas.
