celiac disease awareness

Dear Readers, The beginning of summer feels like a breath of fresh air and a time to celebrate making it through a long winter with fresh, light summer fare. You’ll find scrumptious recipes within this book to help you do just that, from petite muffin tin meals (page 22) to camp favorite dishes (page 28) to recipes that utilize fresh spring produce that’s in season right now (page 48). As you dig in, keep in mind that May is Celiac Disease Awareness Month, which is the theme for this issue. Every year, in honor of those who are diagnosed with celiac disease, funds are raised and communities come together to educate, advocate and work toward better research for celiac disease. Whether celiac disease impacts you personally or someone you know (and it…

CBD-infused products that will make you feel groovy but won’t get you high The passage of the Farm Bill at the end of 2018 removed hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, making non-THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) cannabidiol (CBD)-infused products legal; however, they remain closely regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Finally, hemp is legal (and no longer entwined with its cousin, marijuana), and the industrial hemp industry is in for its biggest boom yet. The legalization of hemp has changed consumers’ perception of the ingredient and is bringing about an understanding of its full potential. While hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, cannabis sativa, hemp contains most of the CBD that people use medicinally, according to Medical News Today. By passing the Farm Bill, the government has redefined hemp-CBD as…

top 5 reasons cheat days are a major no-no

The gluten-free diet wasn’t trendy when I was diagnosed in 1997. Gluten wasn’t a buzzword, grocery stores had few, if any, options, and what they did have was unaffordable and inedible. Not many knew what gluten was, including dietitians, so I was left to fend for myself. I was alone, depressed and frustrated, cheating whenever the depression took hold. I punished my body for not allowing me to eat what I wanted. Maybe I wanted to prove that my diagnosis was wrong. Maybe I couldn’t let go of all the memories evoked from now “prohibited” foods. I only know I couldn’t control the intense cravings for my favorite comfort foods and simply gave in. I rationalized that a little gluten wouldn’t hurt and would binge for a week until my body…

a taste test of america’s beloved treat turned gluten free

As of this year, Girl Scouts of America offer two gluten-free Girl Scout Cookie options, Toffee-tastic and Caramel Chocolate Chip, meaning those who are gluten free can join in the excitement of Girl Scout Cookie season and find a new favorite treat. According to a Girl Scouts press release, both gluten-free varieties are offered only in select Girl Scout council markets for as long as supplies last and can only be purchased from a registered Girl Scout. And “reflecting the cost of production,” gluten-free cookies may be priced higher than other Girl Scout Cookies. Because only registered Girl Scouts may sell Girl Scout Cookies, their availability is typically limited to the six- to eight-week period when girls are engaged in the program through their local council, so Girl Scout Cookie season is…
