First things first–Valentine’s day candy list here from CDF.
Valentine’s day was one of my favorite holidays growing up, and not much has changed. An annual tradition is Tuxedoed Strawberries, and there’s still time to make these for your favorite someone (this includes yourself of course!)
Another annual favorite: Hazelnut Buttercups
A bunch of my other favorite recipes are here, and there are great V-day GF roundups from
- Gluten Free Easily
- Gluten Free Homemaker
- Good Housekeeping

- and Gluten Free, Vegan options from Ricki Heller

- The FDA has a comment period open on gluten in hydrolyzed foods. You can submit comments until Feb 16th. Nice comments on it here from In Johnna’s Kitchen.
- There is a current live bill for gluten in medications It’s listed as having 0% chance of being enacted, so without our support, it’s going nowhere. You can write into the citizen petition here.
- WaPo did a review on G-free dishes to try in DC.
- Zonulin as a marker for gluten sensitivity?
- The list of products labeled gluten-free that contain gluten is growing, including Bosco’s Chocolate syrup, Burt’s Guinness Chips and more. Many, many thanks to Gluten Free Watchdog for their tireless advocacy.

We’ll be covering all the nutritional deficiencies and excesses typically seen, preparation of gluten-free grains, touching on arsenic, using a GFD for sports performance and much more.
