Portland, Maine: A Gluten-Free Hot Spot

When I grew up in Maine, downtown Portland was just a bunch of empty warehouses - not exactly a destination spot.  Like many cities, it’s encountered a giant resurgence over the years. In fact, Portland...

DIY Kombucha

Homemade kombucha is made from sweetened tea (pure green tea or black tea) that’s been fermented with a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast), also known as a “mother” because of its ability to reproduce. The result is a tangy, probiotic-rich beverage that’s good for you and your digestion. It can be flavored with ginger, hibiscus, rose hips, lavender, fruit juice or any spices you love.

Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Sage Latkes Recipe

These mini-latkes are baked, which means you don’t have to stand in front of a hot stove. Infused with autumn flavors like sweet potato, pumpkin and sage, they are surprisingly crisp when freshly baked. (They reheat nicely but they won’t be quite as crisp.) Top them with chopped fresh sage. This recipe can be made with egg replacement; see instructions below.

A Classic Diner with Real GF Options

My son ordered the chicken guacamole melt with a side of hand cut fries. It came with unbelievably good and normal-sized gluten free bread. I had to ask what brand it was…it was that good. That’s when I found out that they baked it on the premises and have an entire bakery in their basement that is divided up to avoid cross-contamination. I had a cobb salad and an order of their Disco Fries, hand-cut fries served with a side of brown mushroom gravy and a side of cheese sauce for dipping. DELISH!

A Safe Gluten-Free Haven is like a Home Away from Home

Kennebunk and Kennebunkport offer several restaurants that are tuned in to the gluten-free diet, too. We frequently stop at H.B. Provisions, a modern version of a general store that offers sandwiches on gluten-free bread (made in a separate area, if requested) and a freezer filled with gluten-free provisions.

Pasta, Pizza, Pierogies…The “P” Foods Rule!

As a precursor to this issue, my husband and I attended a family wedding in San Francisco recently. My sister-in-law’s childhood friend has adopted the Paleo diet (yes, another “P” word – it’s destiny) and ordered cauliflower-based pizza crusts for dinner one night at home in the Bay Area as we decompressed following the wedding festivities. While Mark & I have had GF pizza crusts, this was our first experience with cauliflower crusts. We topped one with garlicky shrimp and spinach and a small amount of feta cheese (no seafood/dairy restrictions, as you can see). The other was topped with a variety of veggies and some cheddar.

Celiac Disease and Cancer

Cancer & Celiac Disease

Our Readers Love Us!

"Oh, how I wish my doctors had told me about the psycho-social impact of celiac disease—social isolation, anxiety, depression. People stop inviting you to potlucks, lunch with friends, dinner celebrations and neighborhood gatherings because they don’t know how to deal with your dietary issues. Gluten Free and More helps me deal with these issues. But it really takes internal fortitude to push through the isolation and step out the front door."
