Diagnosis: Delicious – Living Gluten-free to Treat Celiac Disease

Diagnosis: Delicious - Jeanine Friesen interviewed for Winnipeg Free Press

“Sufferer” – I wouldn’t really say I’m suffering, would you?


May is Celiac Awareness Month and to help put emphasis on this, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Alison Gillmor of The Winnipeg Free Press, which is on new stands today (May 15, 2013). We talked about being diagnosed, what it was like to transition to a gluten-free life, and of course, food. I love the title she chose for the article, “Diagnosis: Delicious”, now only is it catchy, it’s true. When diagnosed with celiac disease, and autoimmune disease, eating gluten-free is our prescription, our way of treating celiac disease. And it can be a gratifying one too – it’s not all about dry, flavourless (and expensive) food. I’ve managed to live a pretty tasty life the last five years, and you can too!

If you have a chance, take a few minutes to read the article, I really appreciate how she put it together. You can find the article online, or in Section C of The Winnipeg Free Press. If you are new on this journey, you may appreciate the book referenced in the article, The Everything Guide to Living Gluten-free. The first 10 chapters of the book are directed at helping you transition to living gluten-free, how to remove all the gluten from your diet (and kitchen), and how to move forward from there. It contains all the things I learned through trial and error on my journey to living gluten-free. The second half of the book contains over 120 easy-to-follow recipes that will help you to begin that gratifying journey.

    I really enjoy reading about celiac recipes especially when it is dairy free. I am a celiac but I am also lactose intolerant. Both together makes it difficult to come up with different kinds of meals. I have been managing for the past 3 years but I am always eating the same thing. I have kidney and liver problems so I cannot eat a lot more foods like beef, pork, etc. So whatever you publisize in your recipes, I am always looking forward to find something new.
    Thank you
