The Gluten-Free Lifestyle Blog Carnival

First, I’ve made my gfe readers wait too long for the announcement on the winner of Stephanie O’Dea’s Make It Fast, Cook It Slow cookbook giveaway. You’ll want to head over to my Out and About page momentarily to see who was selected by (the True Random Number Generator)!

Now, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the February 1, 2010 edition of The Gluten-Free Lifestyle Blog Carnival! This monthly event is the creation of Kim Hopkins, The Food Allergy Coach. The focus is “tips, recipes, health information, and support for people adjusting to life with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or gluten sensitivity.”

    Love this carnival! I’ll be back later so I can check out all the entries! I already know I want to check out Renee’s post on gluten free gifts!

      Hi Iris–I haven’t checked out all the entries myself yet, but I will in a few minutes. I just love the diversity of this carnival. Kim implemented such a great concept! Yes, I agree … gluten-free gift ideas are always worth checking out. :-)

    Thanks for hosting!!!!

      Hi Kim–It’s my pleasure. :-) You’ve created a very neat event. You never know what the entries will be, but you do know that they will all be worthwhile!

    Nice blog! Thanks for posting and sharing. It is refreshing to see grain free recipes!

    I have a video on gluten sensitivity for those that are confused. Feel free to watch and share it.

    In good health,
    Dr. O

      Hi Peter/Dr. O–Welcome to gfe! More and more of us are at least incorporating grain-free recipes in our diet, if not totally being grain free. I find your information on that topic compelling to say the least. I also greatly appreciated your analogy of the likelihood of an intestinal biopsy (the gold standard for diagnosing celiac) finding damaged villi to be like dipping a bucket into an ocean and expecting to come up with fish—how very, very true! Even celiac experts like Dr. Stefano Guandalini (U of Chicago Celiac Disease Center) are stating that folks with extraintestinal symptoms will show little or no intestinal damage, so they merit a celiac diagnosis without a positive biopsy. Your video is superb. I hope many of my gfe readers will watch it and I’ll certainly share it with my support group.

      Thanks so much for stopping by gfe! I hppe to “see” you and talk to you again in the future. :-) Best,

    Thank you Shirley! I am looking forward to reading these!

      Hi Erin–My pleasure! Thank you for submitting your post. I’m still working my way through reading the entries, including yours. ;-) Such a great roundup!

    Hi there! I love your blog carnival. Not sure why I didn’t notice it earlier, though! Do you have a button or some sort of permanent link to your blog carnival that I could put in the sidebar of my blog? I’d love to feature you with the other recipe features that I have there if possible.

    Swing by and leave me a comment or drop me an email if you get a second! Thanks! :)

      Hi Mikki–Welcome to gfe! :-) I’m only this month’s host. You’ll want to contact Kim Hopkins, the creator/overall host of this carnival. Her blog is The Food Allergy Coach. You can contact her via her site.
