Quick Gluten Free Lunch Ideas
I came across this list on www.rageagainsttheminivan.com. I don’t think there can possibly be a better name for a blog….
Gluten Free Playdough Recipe
I have learned the hard way that Playdough and Celiac Disease do not mix! Here is a quick and easy gluten free recipe which I found on the parents.com site:
1/2 cup rice flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup salt
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 cup water 1 teaspoon cooking oil
Food coloring, if desired
Mix ingredients. Cook and stir on low heat for 3 minutes or until it forms a ball. Cool completely before storing in a sealable plastic bag.
Celiac Blogs for Mothers and Families:
1. celiackiddo.wordpress.com: I recently discovered this blog, and the author, Dana, has a genuine voice about what it is like to raise a child with celiac disease. I urge you to check it out.
2. celiacyogamomma.blogspot.com: Her husband and son both have celiac disease and she has learned a ton through the years! Her site is full of simple, family-friendly GF recipes, product reviews, and advice.
Adam’s Gluten Free Surprise
This is a wonderful book which teaches children (and siblings, teachers, etc.) all about Celiac Disease and what it means to live gluten free. My oldest children loved it and after we read it together, I felt that they finally understood why I need to be so careful about what I eat.
