Fish update: The Environmental Working Group (the fine folks that put together the Dirty Dozen list) have new fish recommendations as of Jan 2014. I have a summary and my thoughts here. While the omega 3s from fish are important for everyone in terms of heart health, triglycerides, etc., they’re particularly useful for the gluten-free community, since they reduce inflammation. Autoimmune diseases are inflammatory, and there’s specific research on omega 3s on conditions that are linked to Celiac and gluten sensitivity, such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren’s, bipolar disorder, Schizophrenia, MS, IBD (Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s), and many others.
- Here’s a really nice article with Dr. Alessio Fasano of the Center For Celiac Research on Celiac, gluten sensitivity and his thoughts on potential future treatments. As always, his articles are a fascinating read.
- I’ll be presenting a webinar for the Tidewater Food Allergy Support Group on Feb 11th, 2014 on “Mission possible: a balanced diet with food allergies.”
- Wanna win 2 gluten-free cookbooks? Hop over to my blog and enter by Feb 8th.
- Got Raynaud’s? I know, this is a really hard time of year, and of course, it affects so many people with Celiac. My favorite suggestions for getting through the winter are here.

Tuxedoed Strawberries Fruit in tasty formal ware. What’s not to love?
