|10 years ago, adopting a gluten -free diet was extremely challenging, to say the least. First of all, no one knew what it was unless they'd already been told that they needed it. And then, after all your explaining and educating, you were lucky if you could get so much as a plain salad to eat.Today, EVERYONE has heard of the gluten free diet. Chances are just about everyone you know is either following a gluten-free diet or knows someone who is.
Gluten intolerance has been linked to a wide variety of health challenges, including chronic fatigue, eczema, thyroiditis, dementia, balance problems, dermatitis, ADHD, autism, allergy and asthma.
In his thoroughly researched book Healing the New Childhood Epidemics: Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies: The Groundbreaking Program for the 4-A Disorders, Dr. Kenneth Bock discusses the role of gluten in children suffering form these 4 disorders.There are many books that are reliable sources of Gluten-Free information, including Dangerous Grains:Why Gluten Cereal Grains May Be Hazardous To Your Health”. Most of the recipe books include dairy, eggs, refined flours and sugar. My approach to gluten free recipes is different. My recipes are completely devoid of eggs, dairy, flour and sugar, in addition to being gluten free.
Stay tuned to this blog for announcements about gluten free resources and gluten free recipes. If you have recipes you'd like to share, submit to firstname.lastname@example.org . If yours is chosen, I'll publish and post to my blog, with links back to you.

When I left off breads of all kinds (even spelt and kamut, ground the flour myself), I threatened to write a book titled “Life After Bread…..”
“let food be your medicine and medicine your food”
I always liked the name of the class you taught…
…and maybe add to that the subtitle, “Fresh and Fun Recipes”.

i am doing the adrenal fatigue easting and natural pills. doning GREAT .But today my stomach is hurting bad all day.
What could it be??
A stomach ache can mean so many things…eating too fast, eating under stress, eating something that had spoiled or disagrees, food allergy…and on and on. If it persists and you’d like help, please set up a session with me…I suggest a Breakthrough Strategy session as a good starting point http://www.drritamarie.com/BreakThru.htm
To get relief, I suggest relaxing, gently massaging your abdomen and refraining from solid foods til you feel better
Love, Health and Joy,
Keep it Alive…and yummy.
