Kutia is a traditional Ukrainian dish. My family always ate it on Ukrainian Christmas Eve at the start of our meal. I am pretty determined not to allow our required gluten free lifestyle to make us miss out on things so I created this wheatless gluten free Kutia recipe for My Celiac Family to enjoy last year. I made it again this year and decided I should share it in case there are others out there missing this traditional food.
I think I was more excited than pretty much anybody in Calgary for the Calgary Gluten Free Expo 2018. Since I am so interested in learning everything I can about celiac disease I am part of a number of online groups. People are always posting pictures of various gluten free events and I have been hoping …
Teach your gluten free child that they are different. Don’t try to shield them and keep their world the same. We live in a very different world because we can’t participate in “breaking of bread” like everyone else. Teach them that social gatherings are more about socializing and being with friends and family and less about a giant slab of pizza or cake!
Wow! Gluten free Calgarians are lucky! The list of gluten free Calgary restaurants, bakeries, vendor and producers is actually really long! The businesses listed here are all 100% gluten free. While I understand that a number of restaurants attempt to offer gluten free food, and some do it very well, I have a soft spot for places where I know My Celiac Family will be safe from cross-contamination.
These Easy 4 Ingredient Gluten Free Oat Flour Wraps are healthier than the white flour tortilla wraps that we used to eat. They roll very nicely without cracking and they stay nice and soft. Best of all, I feel happy knowing that I am filling my family with fibre, protein, iron and calcium, not just empty processed calories.
I have a happy place, it is called the Totally Gluten Free Bakery and it is in Lacombe, Alberta. It is one of my happy places because My Celiac Family can eat there safely and we all really love the food.
These gluten free energy bites are delicious and they do not need to be baked so they are easy to make. My kids love to make them with me. They are packed with fibre, protein, iron, calcium, omega-3 fatty acids and flavour! Everyone who tries my gluten free energy bites asks for the recipe so …
As I was making this gluten free spaghetti dish tonight I was smiling and thinking about how healthy it is and how much my kids love it. When the sauce is simmering the smell gets everyone’s mouth watering and when the kids ask what is for supper and I say homemade spaghetti they cheer. I feel so good serving this to my family because it is full of veggies, fibre and protein and it is pretty easy to whip together on a week night.
I was chatting with my husband about my latest post and my seven-year-old son Noah was listening. He asked if he could have a blog too so he could share his recent gluten free experience. I told him that if he wanted to write something I would post it.
This birthday trip to Edmonton was dedicated to trying as many of the gluten free places in Edmonton as I could and spoiling My Celiac Family. Since being diagnosed with celiac disease we rarely eat out because of the risk of cross contamination, so a few days of not planning meals, grocery shopping, cooking and washing dishes was just what the doctor ordered for the start of my 40th year. Here is a summary of the gluten free places in Edmonton that we visited during our trip:
