    It’s finally here – Episode 200 of the Podcast.  As promised, I have handed over the podcast to Ellen Bayens of theceliacscene.com to ask me questions, which I didn’t know in advance.  This is by far the longest episode of the A Canadian Celiac Podcast.  Ellen went out of her way to contact many interesting guests from past episodes to solicit questions and comments.  I am humbled by their input and Ellen’s efforts. Thank You to all who participated.

    Gluten Free Blogger to Author

    Gluten Free Blogger to Author

    On this episode I have the pleasure of speaking with Taleen Benson blogger and cookbook author.  Taleen started her blog after her husband was diagnosed with a condition that required a gluten free, egg free diet.  Taleen has a loyal following for her blog called “Just As Tasty”, and she was encouraged to write a cookbook of gluten free, egg free recipes.  The book, called “Just as Tasty, Gluten-free and Eggless Baking Through the Seasons” is available for purchase on Amazon.  Taleen explained the process of writing her own cookbook as well as having it available with Amazon print on demand.  She was kind enough to send along her recipe for Molasses Cookies
    Makes about 18 cookies
    1 ¾ cups (259g) gluten-free flour blend
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    ½ teaspoon ginger
    ½ teaspoon fine sea salt
    ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, room temperature
    ⅔ cup (133g) light brown sugar, packed
    ⅓ cup (113g) unsulphured molasses
    1 tablespoon Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer, mixed with 2 tbsp water
    ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    ¼ cup (50g) granulated sugar, for rolling
     
    Preheat the oven to 350℉. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt together. Set aside.  Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter with the brown sugar until smooth. Add the molasses, prepared egg replacer, and vanilla extract and beat to incorporate. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low speed until combined.  Roll balls of cookie dough, measuring about 1 tablespoon per cookie, then roll in the granulated sugar. Arrange on the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Use your hand to press down on each one to flatten slightly. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for at least 10 minutes before removing.   
    Notes: 
    Once mixed with water, the egg replacer must sit for 1 minute to thicken. If you are not looking to replace eggs, you should be able to use 1 egg instead of the egg replacer.

    Flax and the Gluten Free Diet with Valley Flax Flour

    Flax and the Gluten Free Diet with Valley Flax Flour

    On this episode I chat with Howard Selig who is not only a Registered Dietitian, but a trained chef.  After recognizing the nutritional benefits of adding flax in the preparation of some foods for residents of a care home, Howard branched out filling the needs of other care homes by grinding flax seeds for them.  Providing flax in different forms to others soon became a business.  Howard explains the many nutritional advantages of flax and how it can be a benefit to the gluten free diet.  With his baking skills, Howard decided to formulate a flour mix, gluten free of course, along with baking mixes (the one for bread just needs you to add water!).  Salene Pyke works with Howard and she explained what products they sell and how to get free shipping.  You can find out more on their website at www.flaxflour.com .

    Ep 196 The UnBun Story

    Ep 196 The UnBun Story

    On this episode I speak with a man who identified a void in the gluten free marketplace – that of a healthy, good tasting hamburger bun.  Gus Klemos tells us his why, and more importantly his how he came up with a completely newly formulated gluten free bread that he named UnBun.  Gus is from Toronto and in a few short years from very humble beginnings, with a great deal of work, UnBun is now selling across both Canada and the US.  Gus discusses what makes his bread products different, and it makes us think about what benefits we are all looking for from our bread.  You can likely find UnBun products in not only your supermarket, but as staples in your fast food outlets.

    Catching Up with Nicole Byrom RD

    Catching Up with Nicole Byrom RD

    It’s great for me to have returning guests on the podcast.  Nicole Byrom RD, works with the Canadian Celiac Association as the Health Promotions Manager.  When I contacted her about coming back on the podcast, she had a list of things she wanted to inform listeners about.  The topic of arsenic in our food comes up often.  Nicole tells us why this is important to the celiac population and some ways to reduce arsenic exposure.  Nicole is involved in an upcoming webinar about Type I Diabetes and its relation to celiac disease.  There is a link below for more information on the webinar.
     
    Since this is October, the topic of Halloween candy came up.  We both discussed how our celiac daughters were able to make the best of what could be a difficult situation.  Below is a link to the list of safe Halloween candy from the CCA.  Nicole filled us in on the growing practice of setting out “teal pumpkins” to signify that the house has non-food or allergen friendly treats to give away.
     
    Nicole told us of the upcoming publications from the CCA as well she reminded us of the CCA Virtual Conference to be held on November 13th and 14th.  Below are links to sign up for the virtual conference, as well as to be on the email list for CCA publications.  It’s not too late donate to the teams from the CCA across the country running in the Scotiabank Run, as per the link below.  Nicole suggests you donate to her team BC CCA, as there is a bit of a competition going on.

JoceMcK ,

Fantastic podcast!

This podcast is fantastic for anyone just starting out with celiac (listen to episode 53 first) or those who have been living with it for years. So much knowledge is shared and expert guests really solidify this podcast as an invaluable resource for not only Canadian celiacs, but anyone wanting to learn about living with the disease.

Carl im awesome ,

I learn something new every episode. Living gluten free requires ongoing learning and this podcast will guarantee that! Thanks Sue.
