    You're Darn Tootin', No Gluten

    Several years ago, I had the privilege of knowing a wonderful school administrator who was passionate about his job.

    His name was John. (For discretionary purposes, his last name will be omitted.) He was in charge of discipline at the high school where I held a long-term substitute teaching position.

    A large, burly man with a buzz cut and a soft-spoken demeanor, he patrolled the hallways every day without fail, keeping a watchful eye on the crowd and listening for signs of potential trouble above the boisterous din of hormone-crazy teenagers. He also was in charge of after-school detention, where his office was located. His room was usually packed to overflowing with students, many of whom had been relegated to his oversight due to poor classroom management on the part of many teachers, some of whom had silently abdicated their authority in the face of student apathy and intimidation.

    Despite the unpleasant nature of his job duties, John was close with staff and students alike---even with the ones who persistently graced his presence as soon as the final bell rang.

    To be sure, a couple of young weisenheimers had reached the point of in-school suspension, and one even was transferred out of the district for anti-social behavior. But by and large, very few dared challenge his authority.

    He did not teach classes per se. His primary job was to ensure a daily well-oiled administrative and academic dynamic that provided as efficient an output as could be expected from all parties. He stayed above personal and political agendas but was not averse to throwing down behind the scenes if the situation called for it.

    In sum, he was an example of an ideal teacher: passionate, dedicated, persistent, compassionate, and determined to see students succeed despite overwhelming odds.

    Then one day John stopped showing up for work, and no one seemed to know why.

    His mailbox became stuffed with interoffice memos to the point of overflowing. His phone messages piled up until his voice mail was saturated. Faculty members gossiped among themselves and debated the reasons why John had vanished from the face of the earth. Even the higher-ups in the administration were baffled. John's disappearance became the talk of the school, among staff and students alike. Even some parents expressed concern for John and wondered if he was really okay. His office remained vacant for nearly a week before a permanent substitute was hired to fill the remainder of the school year.

    It got to the point where a figurative APB was being issued.

    Then, via the grapevine, word leaked back to the school that John had been hospitalized for Crohn's disease.

    Crohn's is nasty.

    It's a hereditary genetic condition which affects the lower intestine and colon, and impacts the body's ability to absorb nutrients from certain foods, such as wheat, barley, corn, and other foodstuffs that contain gluten.

    Gluten is a protein that is found in breads and cereals, and is an allergen for some individuals. If they consume gluten, they become violently ill, are unable to metabolize food, and can end up in the hospital with their health severely compromised---even to the point of death.

    Fortunately, John had not reached the terminal stage. But he had lost a severe amount of weight and had to have surgery to remove part of his large intestine because the gluten had damaged it so badly. My then-wife and I visited him in the hospital and were shocked by his gaunt

    For many people, living a gluten-free lifestyle is not merely a choice but a requirement.

    I have a friend and relative who I recently found out could not

    I have a friend and relative who I recently found out could not eat gluten. Because they come over often to the house for meals I needed to find some gluten free recipes I could make that would still taste amazing. I found Gluten Free Diet: Eat Nice Food Without the Gluten (Healthy Living Series) by Stephen Williams and was very glad to have found it.

    The recipes in this book are well thought out and written step for step so they are easy to follow. When I can’t cook my husband has to and he needs very easy to follow recipes. As a test out of how easy to follow these recipes were I had him cook one and he was able to do it without complaining. I never thought gluten food would taste very good but the recipes in this book prove me wrong on that. They are delicious and healthy for you.

    I honestly think that anyone would benefit from eating gluten free sometimes. You don’t have to have an allergy to gluten to eat healthier. You should always do your own research on any diet of course and consult with a doctor of nutritionist before drastically changing your diet. However if you are looking for useful and tasty recipes this is a great start.

    What is a gluten-free diet? Is it a fad or a must?

    I read an article in New York Times about gluten-free diet and whether it is needed or not. In a society where the culture includes pizza, pasta, cupcakes, and bread to name a few, a gluten-free diet is something that will raise eyebrows – even if some celebrities follow this regimen.

    Here are the facts where gluten-free diet is a must:
    1) if a person has celiac disease - this is a disease that is according to the website of US National Library of Medicine “is a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. The damage is due to a reaction to eating gluten, which is found in wheat, barley, rye, and possibly oats.
    2) if a person is gluten sensitive (medically termed as non-celiac gluten sensitivity) - this means that a person doesn’t have the celiac disease but responds negatively on a diet with gluten after becoming healthy with a gluten-free diet.
    3) if a person has an allergy to wheat and not necessarily gluten.

    Incidentally, I also learned that gluten-sensitivity is still an unknown malady to the medical world. Medical experts agree that the said condition exists but they are just beginning to explore it and it is still unidentifiable.

    Here is also another fact, many people have celiac disease but do not know it. Consequently, for an unknown but considered illness, many people can also be gluten-sensitive but ignorant about it, too.

    Where does this book fit in?

    This is book is not just for those who know that they are gluten-sensitive or that they have celiac disease or wheat allergy. This book is also for those who do not know that they have those diseases. Therefore, this book is for all of us – whether we have the disease or not. Either way, we will not know unless we take lab tests for celiac but for non-celiac gluten-sensitivity, identifying the disease is still unreliable as of present time.

    This book is helpful to those who want to follow the diet. Stephen Williams gave us several servings of easy to cook recipes that are nutritious, appetizing, and gluten-free. It gives us palates of gastronomic delicacies that are healthy and satisfying. This book is a good give-away for people who want to give their loved ones a gift.

    My only downbeat note here is that other people may appreciate the writer’s style of presenting the recipes is in narrative format but I prefer if it is in the standard recipe format.

    Lastly, I’d like to quote a passage of Stephen Williams in this book, “Health is one of our most important gifts. Without it, we are worth nothing.” It is best that we take care of what is really important – and that is our health. Do not wait to experience the complications of the disease when you have the power of determining it now. Remember that prevention is better than cure.

    Helpful but Bland! To be honest eating foods that have gluten i

    Helpful but Bland!

    To be honest eating foods that have gluten in it never really bothered me until I read in a magazine that a gluten free diet can help people
    who suffer with migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. It has been proven that the diet cures these problems but some
    studies have shown that it provides some relief. Gluten is the stuff that makes comfort foods like bread and pizza taste so good. Its a
    protein that adds the texture and consistency that we like in these foods.
    I suffer with terrible migraines so naturally the moment I read that taking the gluten out of my diet can help, I was intrigued. I just had to
    get my hands on a book that showed me the different foods that were gluten free. On my own I discovered it is really difficult to put a
    healthy list together because its not just about reading the labels to see if it has gluten or not, you have to look at the fat content as well.
    Since manufactures make up for the lack of gluten in foods by adding fat and sugar to make it more tasty, the food essentially becomes
    I did not want to fill my body with junk simply because it claimed to be gluten free. It's overwhelming enough having to stand in the
    supermarket reading cans and box labels to determine whether those products should go into my trolley or not.  I needed a
    comprehensive list compiled by an expert to save me all the trouble. From all the self-help books I have read from Stephen Williams so
    far, this was the one that I was least impressed with. The recipes were limited. They were helpful and easy to follow but very bland.
    I was hoping for some more exciting recipes to be included to get me sold on preparing and eating gluten free meals. This book
    reminded me of the Buckley's commercial slogan "It tastes awful but it works!". The bottom line is that Stephen listed the foods that were
    gluten free, he included some basic recipes to follow and tightened things up with a few helpful tips along the way. I can definitely see
    myself preparing some of these dishes and possibly enjoying them, I just have to add a few Caribbean spices to give it a kick. 
    It will work but I would have liked this book to be longer, include a wider range of recipes, have more exciting selections and focus more
    on the benefits of eating gluten free. Stephen did manage to show me what comfort foods I could enjoy without the gluten. I think with a
    little editing to beef up the content so to speak, this book would be a very good addition to my kitchen library.
