This week I speak with Carla, who is practising Intermittent Fasting. It was recently Thanksgiving in Canada and one of the first times we were able to get together with more than just a couple of family members. Admittedly, Carla didn't follow her IF schedule and now is looking at how she faltered, what the circumstances were as well as creating a…
 
Everyone has a diagnosis story, and I enjoy listening to and sharing many or them. This episode of the podcast is a conversation with Beau Bristow of Nashville TN. Beau was diagnosed as an adult and had a long list of symptoms, which to him were unrelated. Of particular note, was the brain fog, which by reason of the name, you don’t realize at the …
 
This week I talk with Tamie about her plans for exercising and running going forward. We also look at how Weight Watchers introduced boundaries to help make food choices, but did it in a gradual way. Making gluten free choices, must be all in, but the journey to choose healthier gluten free choices is often long. We also chat about our obsession wi…
 
For many people September and October are not as much about Autumn as they are about pumpkin spice everything. Being a baker, this has always interested me, but I have to say, except for pumpkin pie, I had pretty much stayed away. Cinde Little, of the Everyday Gluten Free Gourmet was the best person to get me up to speed on pumpkin spice – is it gl…
 
This week I speak with Carla about the changing seasons, but quickly the conversation pivots to some of the negativity we all put up with surrounding the gluten free diet. Carla recalls how she once left her family in a restaurant because she was frustrated with others not understanding the seriousness of the diet. I also mentioned the BBC show Sat…
 
It’s the beginning of the month again, so I get the pleasure of speaking to Ellen Bayens of theceliacscene.com about some of the topics of interest that have come up during the past month. We discuss the diagnosis story of the family of a Neonatologist in the US who sought out the team at the Celiac Disease Program at Boston Children’s Hospital for…
 
Tamie finally made it to her long awaited half-marathon run. I was thrilled to talk with her about it, the struggles and the victories. As well, we talked about the mindset of a physical challenge and how she worked slowly and progressively to reach this goal. Food choices, mindgames and walking up stairs all posed unique problems, but Tamie tells …
 
On this episode I speak with my daughter Deanna. She has been a guest on the podcast in the past, and I take this opportunity to ask her about some of her attitudes and coping skills dealing with celiac disease and how those compare to my approaches. I was a Mom of two beautiful girls when I was diagnosed, with Deanna’s diagnosis coming five months…
 
This week's conversation about Intermittent Fasting with Carla centres on an instagram post from someone I admire greatly in the celiac world.

Selena works mostly with celiacs who hav…
 
The Canadian Celiac Association successfully presented two virtual conferences in 2020 and is now gearing up for the 2021 Conference.

This week I chat with Tamie as she is in the final couple of weeks before her half marathon. Although Tamie is taking on a physical challenge that I would never think to take on, the mind games and the discipline that she must strive for is something we can all relate to. You might be surprised how much your daily life resembles someone who in my m…
 
On this episode I speak with Carmen from the Ottawa Chapter of the Canadian Celiac Association who came up with the idea of organizing a sleep away camp for kids with celiac disease.

This week I catch up with Carla as she is getting her kids ready for school as well as working on a special project for her employer to help taste test bagels. Now that's a dream job!

It’s the beginning of September, so it’s my opportunity to speak with Ellen Bayens of The Celiac Scene about the studies and articles she has found over the past month to present to us. We talk about a study looking at the gut microbiome of infants, in an effort to identify differences over time in the gut microbiome that later develops into celiac…
 
This week's episode is both encouraging and bittersweet. Tamie is continuing her training for her half marathon run and is learning more about what gives her body energy.

As the pandemic has progressed, organizations have become more creative in adapting their annual events to still continue, but in a different format. That is certainly the case with the Scotiabank Run being held in Toronto. The CCA is heading up Team Celiac and inviting anyone across the country to Step Up for Team Celiac and participate in whateve…
 
This week I chat with Tamie and Sara. Tamie is back from her camping holiday and full into training for her half-marathon.

This week I chat with both Tamie and Sara. Tamie is on a camping trip with her family and taking time to get in her running. Sara is currently working night shift and trying hard to spend some daylight time with her family. Clearly working nights is not helping Sara establish any sort of exercise routine, whereas Tamie is able to prioritize her run…
 
I spoke with Lisa Rigney on Episode 180 of the podcast about what happens when a child gets diagnosed.

It’s always special when I have a returning guest to the podcast.

I was curious as to how our trusted gluten free businesses faired during the complete upheaval of …
 
I've spoken to both Tamie and Sara about their favourite gluten free foods for summer - now I'm quizzing them about salads. Enjoying a salad certainly comes in handy when you are eating gluten free at a restaurant, as that is often the only option on offer. Both Tamie and Sara have some interesting options that are new to me. Sue’s Websites and Soc…
 
On this episode I speak with food blogger and recipe developer Cinde Little, also known as The Everyday Gluten Free Gourmet.

This week I talk with Carla about working out. We both reminisce about when we were younger and able to work out without very soon injuring ourselves. We've learned that celiac disease was often the culprit behind our bone/muscle weakness. Nevertheless, as we get older, we can't exercise with our bodies, as well as we can imagine in our minds, and …
 
A Conversation with Desiree Nielsen and Ellen Bayens A plant-based diet has many formats and can go by many names including vegetarian and vegan.

This week, as the summer weather is settling in, both Sara and Tamie are well entrenched in their workout schedules, something that is relatively new for Sara, and something that has a history for Tamie. Hearing and talking about exercise is often uncomfortable for those of us who have some difficulties finding an exercise we can do safely and cons…
 
There are many things that those of us on a gluten free diet must learn quickly once we receive our diagnosis. For many of us the most challenging is how to prepare and safely eat a gluten free diet, while living in a household that eats gluten. Carla and I discuss this common situation. We offer different suggestions for day-to-day coping and high…
 
This week I catch up with Carla who is trying to settle into a healthful formula for her Up and Down days. I have, on the other hand taken to counting calories (some might find this cringe worthy) and I like it! Also I let Carla in on one of my favourite low cal treats - pappadums. I use the Patak's brand, as well as the Jeera Wafer - mostly these …
 
On this episode I speak with Jon Murthy, Head of Global Marketing for BRCGS. This is the organization that certifies foods for the CCA gluten free logo, as part of their many certification programs.

It’s the beginning of June and that means another informative conversation with Ellen Bayens of theceliacscene.com. This past month Ellen has brought us a great deal of information.

This week I chat with Carla. We are both using intermittent fasting to lose weight. Carla recently listened to the audio book by Dr. Michael Mosely, The Fast 800.
