I have so much to say in this post that I will call this a mish mash of stuff…here we go!
Gluten Free Fenway Part II – Sorry to say that I have been to couple of more games this year and the one cart that said Gluten Free and lived in the healthy selections area of the concessions now sells candy. First, they still do carry a GF cookie and Brownie, but if someone didn’t tell you that they were there you are not going to find it. Second, not sure how Swedish Fish can be termed healthy (don’t get me wrong, downright my favorite candy). There is still concessions though that you can get a hamburger or hot dog without a bun and that only cook French Fries in their fryers so just ask around and you will find them. But needless to say I am a little disappointed that they took down the sign…
FDA on Their Way – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration reopened the comment period for its 2007 proposal on labeling foods as “gluten-free” on August 2nd. The agency is also making available a safety assessment of exposure to gluten for people with celiac disease (CD) and invites comment on these additional data. For more information and to make a comment go to http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm265838.htm
On a Personal Note: Had an appointment at the Celiac Center at Beth Israel the other day (it’s Bill by the way) and the Dr. is very happy with my progress. The only problem is that now I have to lose some weight. So not only am I on a Gluten Free diet but now I have to be on a Gluten Free diet diet. I guess I could be in a worse place than gaining weight and having my body absorb nutrients again. So I will cut down on the bread, the rice and the chocolate chip cookies and start to eat a little healthier.
That’s what I have for today…I will try to be more focused next time (if that is at all possible!!)
