Early-in-life antibiotic exposure increases susceptibility to inflammatory bowel disease

How many of you were given even one course of antibiotics when you were a baby or a small child? How about multiple courses of antibiotics for ear infections, strep infections, or urinary tract infections? Do you think these antibiotics impacted your current health? And if you are celiac, do what are your thoughts?

Even short, single antibiotic courses given to young animals can predispose them to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) when they are older, according to Rutgers researchers.

Raw, untouched photo of the actual SUN! Those of us impacted by the fires 🔥 raging in Oregon right now, are thankful to be reminded that the sun is still in the sky. The sun was visible only briefly before the smoke filled air obscured it once again today. A fabulous rain, a famously good Oregon RAIN would be incredible right now to put out the still burning fires and clean the air. We are still in the ‘Air is hazardous to breathe’ zone. VERY thankful my kissing cousin @tracy.jo.shaffer and her family are safe and able to return to their unburned (yeah!) property. The sun will come out, and it will rain, hopefully, tomorrow.

To all of us with celiac disease and food intolerances living in Oregon, Washington and California right now being evacuated or under threat of evacuation because of the unprecedented fires 🔥 burning, please rewatch my videos on Emergency Preparedness or listen to the Gluten Free RN Podcasts. For those of you in Salem, Oregon or surrounding area, contact me for safe gluten free & paleo food supplies. Be prepared & ask for help! Stay safe.

This looks and tastes amazing!

Nutella - healthy & homemade

Who doesn’t want to open a jar and dip in with a spoon? If you need to get a chocolate fix, try this healthy variation.

This recipe it is delicious and not full of palm oil and artificial flavor that you find in an off the shelf product. Check out the recipe below.

Makes 1 jar

- 1 cup hazelnuts

- 1 cup medjool dates (pitted)

- 1/2 cup water

- 2 tablespoons pure organic maple syrup (avoid ones with additives)

- 1-2 heaped tablespoons raw cacao powder (depending on how rich you like it)

Optional: 1/2 a ripe banana - gives a very subtle, but very delicious flavour!

Start by soaking the hazelnuts in water overnight, or for at least six hours - this is so important and the recipe just won't work if you don't do this! To soak simply place the nuts in a bowl and cover them with filtered water, then leave to one side.

Once you are ready to make the Nutella drain the water from the bowl and discard it.

Place nuts in a food processor with the pitted dates, fresh water, maple syrup and raw cacao (if you want the banana touch then add the banana at this point too) and blend for about 5-10 minutes, until a very smooth paste forms.

Store in an airtight jar in the fridge. Enjoy!

Celiac Disease Linked to Common Chemicals in Pesticides, Nonstick Cookware and Fire Retardants

This is not surprising. How many of you were exposed to teflon pans when you were growing up? I know I was. And those flame retardant pajamas they used to make... Is there causation here or strictly correlation? Most likely, it all adds up to a compromised immune system that is susceptible to damage by the proteins in wheat, barley, rye and oats*. What are your thoughts?

Elevated blood levels of toxic chemicals found in pesticides, nonstick cookware, and fire retardants have been tied to an increased risk for celiac disease in young people, new research shows. Acco…

Yeah!!
05/25/2020

Yeah!!

Good news. We are reopening! We will be gently opening next weekend on Saturday May 30th from 9am-1pm with limited days and hours and new protocols. Please be patient with us. This has been such an intense time for us and restaurants. We want to succeed and thrive, so we are doing what we can to operate efficiently under the restrictions, while providing safety and care for our employees and community. Stay tuned for more details. Love to you all!

Hello! If you or anyone you know is interested in filling out a survey related to celiac disease symptoms, genes and a few other pieces of information all I need is a name and an email address so I can send them their own unique code. The survey is completely confidential. It helps if you have your genetic test for celiac disease but it is not required. We are even interested in people that were told they couldn't have celiac disease based on their gene test results. Share widely please!

ONE LAST NOTE FOR THOSE WHO WOULD LIKE TO PLAN AHEAD FOR WEEKEND "FAMILY STYLE" MEALS:
One of our whole tri-tip roasts or a rack of ribs with some pints or quarts of some of our sides and some of our rolls or cornbread makes for a great family meal and usually has some serious leftovers for the whole weekend. HOWEVER, YOU MUST ORDER IN ADVANCE OF DAY OF PICK UP:

~ If you want a WHOLE tri-tip roast for pick up Friday, you
must order it today. Cost is $39 dollars, it weighs between
2.5-3 pounds after cooking.
~ If you want a WHOLE Rack of Ribs for SATURDAY, you
must order it by Friday. Cost is $32 and there are 12 ribs
to a rack.
~ Our sides can be order by the pint or the quart. Pints
range from $7.95 to $8.95 and quarts range from $15-$18
dollars each, depending on the side.
~ You can order a WHOLE pan of Cornbread as well for
$35.40. If you are cutting it up into the size we serve at t
the Cafe, it cuts up into 12 pieces. HOWEVER, it easily
cuts up into 16 pieces. A pan of Jalapeno Cheddar
Cornbread is $41.40. It comes with Honey Butter.

Do you have any lectures coming up after April 4th in Oregon? So sad I missed the others!
Hello! We have a boy from Germany who has Celiac's and must have a gluten free diet. He would like a host family to host him for next school year 2020-2021. He would likely participate in swim team and track and field. Would anyone out there be interested in the opportunity to host an international high school student. It is a warm adventure and opportunity to create lifelong friendships and extended family in Germany. Please contact Cynthia at (541) 704-0937 I am happy to answer questions! Thanks so much, Cynthia
It was great to meet you today @ the 'Nourished Fair'
It was great to meet you today at the Nourish Fair. And I bought your book "Dough Nation"
This may be of interest to those who are interested in villous atrophy. It also helps to understand the troubling thoughts that some people may be diagnosed with coeliac disease when they possibly may have something else instead. The other point which is always worth remembering is those who do not have villous atrophy or any other visible damage to the small intestines are often told that they do not have coeliac disease - but I have read quite a few articles which suggest that it often takes seven or more years after a person develops coeliac disease for any visible damage to be present. This is an online article in pdf format shared by the Mayo Clinic entitled Not All That Flattens Villi Is Celiac Disease: A Review of Enteropathies
The frost came this morning glistening on the beans & tomatoes. Frost is the marker for when life slows down on the farm, giving time to ponder. I was thinking today about being celiac and 16 years of up, down & sideways the medical system has tossed myself and my family. Yet in these memories there has always been one person that could stop the spinning. I would call her with question, meet for advise or just have a cry. She has always been my rock. When I would have ideas and thoughts about celiac disease that were outside of the medical establishments beliefs she never told me I was wrong. She simply just added her expertise knowledge to the conversation, allowing me to make informed decisions. What I learned most from her is we must each find a tailored diet/lifestyle that is conducive to healing and continued health while keeping our sanity. Thank you Nadine Grzeskowiak
I was at a work training at a hotel conference center in NJ last week. It was catered for breakfast and lunch. I told them ahead of time my dietary restrictions and requested the dishes be labeled. Early in the week they did ok. On the fourth day they had two main dishes, chicken and beef, both contained gluten. The chef came out to talk to me and pointed out the risotto was gf (nevermind I shouldn't be eating rice either.) I said, "Yes, but it contains dairy." I requested a piece of salmon seasoned with salt and pepper. He grudgingly complied. The following day they had a PASTA dish LABELED GF. I paused, looked at the noodles, and asked if they were rice noodles. One of the wait staff said, "Oh, can you not have rice?" I said, "No, I can't have gluten and I suspect that is regular wheat pasta." She went to check, and of course, it WAS regular pasta. They amended their sign with a sharpie. The other dish was fish, with gluten ingredients. The chef didn't even come out that time. He just instructed his staff to go have the restaurant cook my piece of salmon. I am so irritated about this, it happens every time I go to a catered work training. Food is not consistently labeled, sometimes it says contains dairy, contains gluten, other times they label dairy free or gf. On some things that had gluten and dairy they would only label it 'contains dairy' (obvious stuff though, like some dessert items.) So I was given a per diem for this training, but the hotel chose what to serve, and I had to pay for my meals out of the per diem. If I had been glutened, it would have been over for me, because it affects my brain functioning so severely. I feel like they should have something similar to the Hazardous Materials Identification List, or a readily available notebook with an ingredients list in it. A lot of the workers are English as a second language folks, and I'm pretty dubious that even the ones in the kitchen who have a good grasp of the language have not been educated thoroughly about this. I feel like I'm in peril whenever I'm in those work situations where they are choosing the food. Fortunately I don't have a problem speaking up when I have doubts and insisting on an alternate dish.
I'm pleased to announce that my book "Gluten Intolerance: when wheat is the enemy" is now available in paperback format from all amazon stores. Also available as e-book.
I don't know if I posted this before but right after my diagnosis of Celiac Disease back in 2005 the only discharge instructions I got were to contact a RD to start the gluten free diet. This convinced me of two things. First the GI staff was not all that educated in GF and that the doctor wa pretty sure I was going to respond positively to the diet. We (myself and the RD) literally set up a 30 day sample diet of breakfast, lunch and dinner with a snack included to help with the weight gaining objective. It consisted of mainly naturally gluten free food. It was the most important aspect of my treatment. For this reason I consider the RD the most important individual in the whole Celiac Disease process. The thing that most shocked me when I started the diet was how quickly my symptoms got better. For me it was only "days" and I was really distressed physically. I must add that I was really careful and did not eat out the first couple of months. I think what most people who question the GF as a diagnostic tool don't understand is that the body does not know whether or not you have been diagnosed "officially". Nor does it care. It only knows that the offending agent gluten has been eliminated and your start to get your life back. Congrats on your recent recognition.
It's celiac disease awareness month and I have a question. If someone has the celiac gene and only eats a gluten-free diet, is it possible for that person to get celiac disease? Can it still come on? I always thought no but I'm realizing it could be set off but maybe you would not know. Inquiring minds...
So how is this “gluten free”?
Quite Interesting!
