Coeliac UK have done a good job this year in really using Coeliac Awareness Week to raise awareness! There has scarcely been a newspaper or magazine that has not carried some sort of coeliac related-article, the Twittersphere has been alive with coeliac tweets and, in our own little world, Alex Gazzola (a full-blooded pasta-eating Italian even though he was brought up in Wales) has taken up the gluten challenge not to eat gluten for a week, but is combining it with a dairy challenge. You can follow his culinary adventures on his blog Food Allergy and Intolerance Ink.
Meanwhile, Micki Rose, true to her promise to make a daily post on her new Truly Gluten Free site, was talking yesterday about coeliac disease and weight gain/loss – undiagnosed coeliacs can suffer from both. As she says there is more to come I suggest to check in and read for your selves.
