Passionately raw!: Raspberry chia smoothie

Passionately raw!: Raspberry chia smoothie | Gluten Free Living - Celiac Awareness | Scoop.it
Chia seeds are just as amazing! Chia is 16% protein, 31% fat, and 44% carbohydrate - of which 38% is fiber! Most of its fat content is the essential omega-3 fatty acid ALA (alpha-linolenic acid). They are low in calories.

Via Dora Furlong
Elena Torsiello's insight:

This sounds so delicious and refreshing. Chia seeds provide a very high dose of Omega 3 fatty acids. This looks like it could be very good and extremely healthy at the same time. Check it out. I can't wait to try it.

People with celiac disease have to eat gluten-free, but why are so many others following the fad?

People with celiac disease have to eat gluten-free, but why are so many others following the fad? | Gluten Free Living - Celiac Awareness | Scoop.it
Gluten must be the most famous protein in the world these days, its name popping up in bestselling diet books, on menus and bakery signs, and in supermarket aisles across North America.
Elena Torsiello's insight:

There are more and more people on the gluten free diet who just don't need to be gluten free. They don't have a medical condition, they just think it is cool. Why?? The diet is expensive and limiting - it IS possible to learn to live happily gluten free, but why would you choose to if you didn't have to? I saw Dr. Peter Greene on a news show, and he does not recommend that anyone adopt a gluten free diet who does not have celiac disease.

Celiac disease causes damage to the small intestine, which is responsible for absorbing important nutrients like calcium. Calcium is essential for building and maintaining healthy bones.
Elena Torsiello's insight:

If you’re a woman, you’re automatically at greater risk for osteoporosis than men. But did you know that if you are a woman with an undiagnosed gastroenterology (GI) disorder, such as celiac disease, your risk of osteoporosis is even higher?
