This mouthwatering issue hits the newsstands in early May, which is Celiac Awareness Month. To celebrate the month and how far delicious, safe food has come, we’re bringing you a ton of blogs, giveaways and twitter parties across our social media network that highlight recipes, events and hot new products. Look for our Celiac Awareness Month logo (shown here) and join the fun on GlutenFreeAndMore.com, as well as on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
We love Celiac Awareness Month because it underscores our mission. Increasing awareness of celiac disease and food allergies and helping our readers live healthier, happier lives are our core goals, as shown in this issue.
Are you newly diagnosed with celiac disease? Check out “10 Steps to Going Gluten-Free” for practical advice on what to do next. Are you way too busy to cook? Read our reviews of gluten-free home-delivery services to see if any might be helpful. Are you stuck at your desk with no time to exercise? Take a look at “Moves for Sedentary People,” an article geared specifically for those of us who sit too much.
We know that some people with celiac disease have really severe reactions to just trace amounts of gluten while others don’t seem to have much of a response. Why is that? We explore the spectrum of gluten reactivity in “Super-Sensitive Celiacs.”
You may have heard the buzz about a new medical condition called POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome). What exactly is POTS? And is there growing incidence in the celiac community? We dig into this important topic in “Gluten & POTS.”
We want you to get outside and enjoy the nice weather. With that in mind, we created the delicious recipes in these pages for ease of preparation. From chilled summer soups and the very best pizzas (inspired by our chef’s trip to Italy) to breakfast scones, easy snacks and grilled kebabs, these recipes will keep you happy and well fed. And for those of you lucky enough to vacation in the great outdoors this summer, turn to “Gluten-Free Campfire Meals” for some amazing flame-cooked meals.
