Those of you who read my blog regularly know that I also suffer from gluten intolerance, an inabilGlutenfree_2ity to digest gluten (also called celiac disease) that affects an estimated 3 million Americans -- 1 percent of the population. I read somewhere that upwards of 30% of Type 1 diabetics also suffer from this additional, genetic auto-immune disorder. Still, one hears very little about this potentially life-threatening syndrome.

Viola! My "local" newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle, published a piece today explaining the condition and eating/shopping possibilities for those who have it. Read the article by clicking HERE. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom to check out the Q&A and the recipes. They even give carb counts per serving. As if they knew about me!!
