Happy almost Springtime! Since March is flying by at, this is a short and sweet rundown of news & research:
- Join me Weds March 18th 2-4pm EST for a live webinar through Dietitian Central on a Gluten-Free and Healthy Diet. We’ll be talking about arsenic, nutritional deficiencies, g-free grains, grain-free diets and the latest research on long-term health on a gluten-free diet. Courses are always interactive and we’ll be covering lots of interesting info.
- Paleo or no-go? Here’s a roundup of research on the Paleo diet.
- A new study shows that monitoring the growth of children can often be a good indicator of Celiac disease and could accurately predict it over 80% of the time.
- …and another 2015 study shows that gluten-sensitivity is a real phenomenon.
- We all hear about probiotics or good bacteria. New studies shows they may even affect risk of diabetes and the risk of food allergies in infants.
- Polysorbate 80? Carboxymethylcellulose? No, these don’t have gluten, but these common ingredients and may lead to an increased risk of Crohn’s or Ulcerative colitis.
- If you’re local to the DC metro area, consider checking out the new GF cooking classes at Wildfire to support the Children’s National Medical Celiac program.
- And Passover is just around the corner! I’ve got an article in the March/April issue of Simply Gluten-Free Magazine on gluten-free Passover options and expanded gluten-free options for the rest of the g-free community, as well, since many Passover options are naturally gluten-free.
