• Ep 62 Italian and Gluten Free

    Let’s start the blog with the Show Notes for this episode:
    On this episode I interview a blogger from Toronto, Ashley Gismondi, who is a proud Italian-Canadian. Ashley shares how her gluten free diet fits with the foods she was brought up on. She chats about cooking with her Nonna as a young child and lets us know about some Italian favourites that can be easily made gluten free. Ashley can be found online at www.celiacandthe6ix.com

    My Thoughts

    It’s funny what you remember from your childhood.  My heritage is British, but along the way, my family took a liking to many kinds of foods.  My father travelled on business for extended periods of time, and one of his favourite places to go was Italy.  I remember as a child he would come home and amaze us with the few words he had learned in Italian.

    My mother was a good cook, not a very adventurous one, but the food produced in her kitchen was nourishing, flavourful and satisfying, or in a word, memorable.  My mother was always keen to cut recipes out of the newspaper, something that I don’t know even appears in newspapers today.  I would often find yellowed, dog-eared scraps of printed paper with a favourite recipe on the counter or tucked into her recipe drawer – yes, it took a whole drawer to contain her carefully curated recipe collection.

    Most Saturdays, my mother made spaghetti sauce.  I never thought much of it until, as an adult, I realized that this was common in Italian homes, but not-so-common in other homes.  Since my father had travelled to Italy so many times, he appointed himself the pasta cooking expert.  I’m not sure if this venerated position existed in other households, but it certainly did in ours.  There was a special pasta pot, he always used a kitchen timer and took over the kitchen for those brief minutes until the pasta was perfectly “a la dente”.

    Making spaghetti on a Saturday was something my parents collaborated on for as long as I can remember.  I can assure you, I didn’t leave home without the recipe.  Now, when I make the meat sauce (it has to be a double recipe to save some for the freezer), my home smells like it did when I was a kid.  It came up in the podcast, and just thinking about it, I can savour the rich aroma of Mom’s meat sauce on the stove.  Some things remind you of home, the smell of my Mom’s sauce recipe reminds me of so much more and yes, the original recipe was always gluten free.

  • Ep 61 Taxes & Celiac Disease in Canada

    Let’s start the blog with the Show Notes for this episode:

    This episode looks at how, in Canada, a celiac can make a claim on their taxes for the extra expense of gluten free food.  The subject sounds simple enough, but as we find out, the Canada Revenue Agency has made the process laborious with very little positive effect on your tax return.  For a professional perspective, I speak with my daughter, Deanna, who is an accountant and has worked with taxes for years.

    My Thoughts

    I said most of what I think about this issue in the podcast, but there is one thing I want to touch on here briefly.

    Is Celiac Disease a disability?  There are different definitions of a disability, and certainly celiac disease, or aspects of how it effects our lives, meet some of these criteria.  Personally, I don’t want to look at CD as a disability.  Yes, it affects everything I eat and all the work and decisions that go into that, but in my other day-to-day activities, I, personally don’t feel its impact.

    There are many, who have other autoimmune conditions as a result of their CD, and those conditions can range from simple to complex, painful and debilitating.  That has not happened to me, and I’m hoping that by managing my CD closely, other conditions will be minimized, or held off completely.

    Except for CD, I consider myself healthy.  I am fortunate, I don’t take any medication, except for some recommended supplements, and I feel I can function well in a fast-paced lifestyle.  Many things are difficult – all around the aspect of food, but I can learn to deal with those. Other people may find an advantage is identifying as disabled, and I would not take anything away from them for that.  For me, CD is not a disease, or a disability – it is condition that I am managing well.  I’ve had lots of experience with it, and am comfortable both with CD and the gluten free diet.

  • Ep 60 Filling a Gluten Free Need

    Let’s start the blog with the Show Notes for this episode:
    This episode is a look at a different kind of gluten free entrepreneur, one that has set herself up to fill the needs of her local community. Sue Torrance operates Tasty Indulgences from a commercial kitchen in her basement. She doesn’t have a store front, but makes her desserts and comfort food meals available at local stores and a restaurant. Sue is located in Prescott, Ontario. You can find her on facebook @tastyindulgences.

    My Thoughts –
    Most people think entrepreneurs start a business to make money. I think if you ask them, they start businesses to fill a need. In the case of Sue Torrance, she saw a need in her local community. I can relate well to this, as I saw the same need, but mine was years earlier.


    When we think of gluten free food producers, we often think of the big names that have widespread distribution and are relatively easy to find in stores and online. I find that many of the smaller businesses are much more interesting. They often fill a more specific need, and do so for a variety of reasons. Some start out on a shoestring budget and many are one-person operations for a long time, as they get established.


    I remember taking a course put on by a local business development group where I live, in which the participants were flushing out ideas for new local businesses. Getting together with other entrepreneurs and facilitators was a valuable experience. One thing I learned is that just because you get compliments on something, your baking for instance, doesn’t mean people other than your immediate family will actually shell out money for it.


    With me, it took a while to fully form my business plan and strategy. I decided to start very small, with very few resources and call in favours from whomever I could. It was hard work, as any entrepreneur will tell you. What keeps you going is that fact that you are making a difference, in your local community, or in a larger market. Maybe you are disrupting established businesses, maybe you are introducing something new. Either way, you are making a mark, making a difference.


    I often did taste testing of my baked goods in different locations and situations. Many people who require gluten free and had been deprived of certain foods for years, were brought to tears tasting my baked goods. For me that made it worthwhile. The work of an entrepreneur is rewarded in many different ways. I started on a shoestring, but got back a fortune in appreciation.

  • Ep 59 East Indian and Gluten Free

    Let’s start the blog with the Show Notes for this episode:

    This episode is the first in a series of talks with individuals from different cultures eating gluten free.  My first interview is with Diyaa who has grown up in an East Indian family eating food you may or may not be familiar with.  Diyaa talks about how gluten and wheat fit into her family’s diet including family gatherings and events.  We chat about which East Indian foods are naturally gluten free.  You may be surprised with some new food finds.  You can follow Diyaa on Instagram @lifeafterroti.  If you have a story about how you cope eating gluten free and adapting your cultural food and traditions into a gluten free lifestyle, please email me at acdnceliacpodcast@gmail.com.

    My Thoughts

    During the podcast I spoke about how much I enjoyed Indian food, even before I knew I was celiac.  When I had my two daughters, we continued, as a family to enjoy curry, rice, butter chicken and pappadums (also spelled poppadums and puppodums).  For years my family has enjoyed Patak’s pappadums which are bought dry and easily brought to life in oil at home.  You should give them a try.

    I have made my own curry, used different curry pastes and sauces and enjoyed takeout for many years.  I remember, there was an amazing Indian restaurant we loved when we lived in Bermuda and we got butter chicken takeout on a regular basis.  The girls called it pink chicken. 

    I wasn’t raised on curry of any form and it wasn’t until I was an adult that I was introduced to this flavourful cuisine.  Once, when one of our daughters had a friend over and we ordered our favourite curry takeout, my daughter was very confused when her friend had never tasted curry before.  Now, both girls make and enjoy curry in their own kitchens.

    The lesson here is to try new foods, have an open mind to different naturally gluten free foods and flavourings and don’t be afraid to share these finds with your families.  If you’ve never done it before, try bringing a chicken curry and pappadums to your next family gathering and see what happens.  Maybe you too will start a new family tradition.

    On a side note – last year, when Deanna visited Bermuda as an adult, one of the meals she wanted to have was “pink chicken” – she got it, and enjoyed it, it brought back childhood memories and did not disappoint.  Food memories can be powerful and this is one our family shares.

    My Thoughts

    Organizing the move of a senior relative into a retirement residence is something you don’t think much about until you have to do it.  In four months last year, I assisted with three of these difficult moves.  As a family we have been fortunate that our loved ones were in a position to make the choice to move willingly, which made our job much easier and less stressful.

    During our visits to different homes, we were often offered a meal.  This is one way to let prospective residents know what to expect if they moved in.  It did throw a bit of a wrench into the works when I had to eat gluten free.  I wasn’t the prospective resident, but I was the one requiring the special meal.

    On every occasion, I was pleasantly surprised with what was presented to me.  One of the wait staff even admitted he was celiac and assured me that the kitchen took gluten free very seriously.  I enjoyed my meals on those days, and continue to enjoy the food when I visit and eat with my relatives. 

    My experience was very positive, but I do know that this is not always what happens.  In years past, I have heard of instances when the elderly were told their gluten free diet would not be catered for and the best way to eat gluten free was to supply their own food.  Since this was not my relative, it was difficult to get involved, and became a cause of great stressful for the family.  The practical guide could not have come too soon.

    Trying to be positive, I hope the bad experiences are behind us, and the more enlightened chefs and executive chefs (the ones really making the decisions) are understanding the gluten free diet and striving to get it right.  At my last meal with my parents, the server told me there were 3 (out of 100) residents on a gluten free diet, and served me a tasty nutritious meal.

  • Ep 57 Selena De Vries Explains the New Food Guide

    Let’s start the blog with the Show Notes for this episode:

    This episode is a look at the new Canada’s Food Guide with Registered Dietitian Selena De Vries.  The new food guide is a dramatic change from the recommendations we have known for years.  We have always been told to eat so many servings from different food groups.  The new guide takes a different approach and Selena does a great job breaking that down for us.

    Selena was a past guest on Episode 14 of the podcast discussing the challenges of losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight on a strict gluten free diet. 

    Selena has written about the new food guide on her website at –

    The Canadian Food Guide and Celiac Disease

    The new Canadian Food Guide was released and it is quite a drastic change from the old 2007 edition. Overall, it’s a very welcomed step in the right direction. The first thing to emphasize is that this a population health guide.

    My Thoughts

    A year ago, I thought I knew almost everything there was to know about living a healthy gluten free lifestyle with celiac disease.  I was wrong.  I’ve learned so much this past year producing the podcast and talking with different experts and celiacs from across the country. 

    After speaking with Selena DeVries on Episode 14 of the podcast, I was inspired to develop another podcast that looked at how individuals are coping with losing weight and maintaining it on a gluten free diet.  I have always been overweight, and it took weight-loss surgery to get me on track.  I started the second podcast in the summer of 2018.

    When I look at what I’ve learned about the gluten free diet, from both A Canadian Celiac Podcast and the Gluten Free Weigh In podcast, I can safely say that using the structure of a gluten free diet to eat healthy, eat more single ingredient foods, eat mindfully and enjoy food have been the common themes I’ve spoken about in both podcasts. 

    Fast forward to January 2019 and the release of Canada’s New Food Guide.  It took me a while to connect the dots.  The mindful eating of mostly unprocessed foods; efforts to make more food at home; and enjoy it more were there in the new recommendations.  I’m doing something right on my gluten free journey, and I have to credit much of my enlightenment to the various people I’ve spoken with for research and interviews over the past year.  I love when a plan comes together.

  • Ep 56 Melissa Secord of the CCA – One Year On

    Let’s start the blog with the Show Notes for this episode:

    The podcast is celebrating one year of episodes!! Melissa Secord, Executive Director of the Canadian Celiac Association was the first guest on the first episode and since the CCA has so much on the go, I thought I’d check back with Melissa one year on.

    Melissa mentioned the campaign to fund peer counselling services at the CCA offices for people who call in needing assistance.  A funding page has been set up, so supporters of the CCA can become Peer Support Champions.  It may or may not be difficult to remember back to realizing you needed to eat gluten free, but we all remember how tricky it was. You can become a Peer Support Champion with a single donation, or with monthly support.  Go to http://bit.ly/CCAPeerSupportChampion.  Otherwise you can find more information under the donate button on the CCA website at www.celiac.ca.

    My Thoughts

    It’s been a great year.  Before I started the podcast, I approached the CCA so they would be aware of what I was doing, and to work with them to help get their valuable message out in a format they had not used before.  The CCA encouraged me, but was not sure if their resources could be stretched to assist with a podcast.  I assured them that I would do the heavy lifting.  I just wanted us to be on the same page. 

    I hoped to promote their efforts and gain access to some impressive experts in the field of celiac disease and the gluten free diet.  That’s just what I got.  I have interviewed Shelley Case, Dr. Duerksen, Selena De Vries, Mark Johnson, most of the Chapter Presidents and the list goes on.

    Truth be told, when I started my podcast, I really didn’t know what it would be like.  Would I run out guests or material after a few months?  Would I get bored with the interview format?  Would I get frustrated with the technology?  Would I get discouraged because no one was listening?

    I can now answer those questions.  Every time, I start brainstorming for new topics or guests, they seem to appear before me like magic, my friends and connections are more than generous to me.  Interviewing does take practice, but I love to talk, and I think, over time, I have become more comfortable with using questions to make an informative, natural conversation.  Just when I think I have a handle on the technology, something changes.  I have been sideswiped a couple of times by posting my Gluten Free Weigh In podcast on the wrong site.  Technology will always be a challenge, but one that feels so good when you actually figure it out.

    About anyone listening – I have been so blessed by my many friends in the celiac and gluten free world for helping me to grow my audience.  I remember being told, if only 30 people listen to an episode, it’s like talking to an entire classroom of people.  To date I’ve had almost 11,000 downloads.  We started slow, but now the podcast is receiving hundreds of downloads each week.  So yes, people are listening.

    One last thing, I didn’t consider when I started the podcast – the kind words, thoughts and feedback I get from my listeners.  When someone listens, the effort is worth it, when YOU listen, it’s a relationship, one I am enjoying greatly.  Thanks for listening.  I’ll keep going if you’ll keep listening.

    My Thoughts

    In anticipation of talking with Kathy Smart, I was hoping to get the opportunity to ask her about how she was “treated” when she was a guest on different TV shows.  What I wanted to know was did they have gluten free snacks prepared for her, and were they expecting her to need them?  Her answer was enlightening, but not unexpected.  The better the management of the production, the better she was “cared for”.

    It is now estimated that 20% of the world’s population identifies with some type of food sensitivity or intolerance.  I remember years ago, at a CCA conference, one of the presenters was a chef who had worked at many large by-invitation-only banquets.  He told us a similar statistic at that time – If asked, one in five people will respond to an invitation with some sort of food intolerance or allergy.  At the time, this number seemed very high to me, but now, I realize it’s actually quite accurate.

    Maybe that’s why I am always surprised when I register for a conference or presentation with my affiliations – “Sue’s Gluten Free Baking”, or “A Canadian Celiac Podcast”, or “Gluten Free Weigh In” – they don’t automatically assume or ask if I require a gluten free snack or meal.  I have to tell them.  I have long since given up expecting even the most “foodie” groups to figure it out.

    The key here might be – “if asked”, the terminology used by the chef who worked those large banquets.  We should be asking, and in a way that people won’t feel embarrassed, or ashamed to admit their food issues.  Yes, the chef had it correct – when you invite someone somewhere there is going to be food, it should be accompanied by a request to identify any special food requirements they have.

    For years now, I have tried to do this.  It doesn’t come naturally at first, and I remember sounding very awkward when I asked, but of late, it just slides off my tongue.  Who knew one family member was vegan, or another didn’t eat red meat? Well I found out by asking, and I was prepared for both of them.  It’s a lesson we can all learn – ask about food allergies and intolerances and nowadays, expect to be told.

  • Ep 54 All-Inclusive Resort Travel with Tarryn & Lisa

    The topic for this week’s episode is staying at an all-inclusive resort.  This poses many problems, but also opportunity for someone on a special diet, if you research and plan ahead.  I spoke with Tarryn of My Celiac Life who travels frequently and Lisa from my Gluten Free Weigh In podcast.  Tarryn walks us through the process she uses and Lisa chats about her recent vacation in Cuba.

    My Thoughts

    I love to travel.  I must admit, I was one of those people who thought my days of travelling were over when I was diagnosed.  I remember travelling with violent stomach issues.  Now that I knew what caused my discomfort (to put it mildly), I really didn’t feel that I could enjoy travelling anywhere because of my restrictions.

    My problem was that I worked as a freelance travel agent and was expected to travel, which in the long run was a good thing.  I did learn to travel.  My favorite vacation is on a cruise.  My second favorite is at an all-inclusive.  The all-inclusive was often not of my choice, but dictated from a supplier.

    I faithfully used the restaurant cards and learned to ask and question everything.  I became a keen observer of the routines of the restaurant staff and was very pro-active in any situation.  I have to say, I have never been sick at an all-inclusive.

    Cruising is my other go-to option.  I have a cruise booked over the winter and will look at how to eat safely on a cruise on a future podcast.

    Travel is fun and rewarding, don’t let your special diet stand in your way.  Work with your diet to travel safely – it will be worth the effort.
