This year’s campaign for Coeliac Awareness Week in Australia (13 – 20 March 2014) is “Stop Feeling Sick & Tired” and aims to encourage people to think of Coeliac Disease as a cause for their unwellness.
Australian statistics highlight that at least 1 in 100 people are affected by Coeliac Disease yet 80% of people don’t know they have the condition.
So what am I doing for Coeliac Week?
Last year I helped man an information station at a shopping centre that our local Coeliac Qld group organised.
This year I am going to blog three gluten free resources that others might find helpful.
This is Jasmine’s third magazine, the other two are available free on-line and for those of us who like printed material, her third magazine has been published. Her ‘Chorizo Macaroni N Cheese’ was a Sunday night hit and I look forward to baking her ‘Monte Carlos’.
This is Bianca’s third on-line magazine. Her first two are available free on-line and now she has launched an on-line subscription for 10 monthly magazines . Filled with new gluten free product information, recipes, health and well being articles and a list of gluten free eating places in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. As we have a family holiday planned for June in Brisbane, this has been a real bonus.
A friend works in a hospital’s endoscopy unit mentioned that this cookbook has been given the heads up by the unit as a wonderful gluten free resource and a must have for those diagnosed with coeliac disease. Written my Debra Malony, the recipe book has been endorsed by Coeliac Australia. To tempt you, a number of her recipes can be accessed via her website (Sticky Date Pudding, Spinach and Fetta Pie, Crispy Potato Zucchini Cakes). I am yet to purchase this cookbook, but I’ll put it on my birthday wish list.
All three would be a perfect gift for friends and family who have Coeliac Disease or are gluten intolerant.
