  1. I was diagnosed in 1997 at age 42. My immune system has improved immensely since going gluten-free. I no longer get colds and laryngitis settling in for weeks on end. Finding decent tasting bread and pasta is a challenge. Latest favourite bread is Sobey’s chia seed loaf. Tend to eat quinoa instead of pasta these days.

    Make sure you record your gluten-free purchases and compare the price to the non gluten-free alternative. You can claim the difference in price on your tax return as part of your medical expenses.

    Great new website, Angie! C & P clued us in. We have a grandson who has celiac, and it’s always fun to find new recipes that everyone can enjoy at family gatherings. We have different sources here for GF products than you do in Canada, but there is a good selection now at supermarkets and specialty stores in Tucson. King Arthur Flour has a gluten free line that is excellent, if you can find it there. I’m talking chocolate chip cookies and blueberry muffins that look and taste identical to the non-GF ones, plus an all purpose GF flour that works magically in gravies, frying, and other standard uses. Keep up the good work, Best Wishes.

      Thanks, you guys. I’ll have a look around for that brand. Can you ship your cookies to Canada? (Just kidding. But hmmm…)
