Dr. John Dempster

Emerging science shows that gluten may be much more damaging than once thought. What was once believed to only affect those with a diagnosis Celiac disease (a debilitating illness resulting from an extreme gluten response) is now being correlated as an inflammatory trigger in almost one in four people today.

Thank goodness there is more to talk about than Rob Ford and Miley this week -- I refuse to give either one of them air time (even though I just did, right there). I found a really cute Etsy video, a delicious quinoa snack (to buy, not make), some amazing gift-wrapping ideas for the holidays, a revealing video and suggestions on how to help people in the Philippines.

Let's talk vegetables. We are all adults here, so we know they are good for us. The best way to get them is raw. So why as adults looking to be healthy do we cook, steam, boil, whatever our vegetables and then add cream sauce, cheese sauce or honey glaze to them? Now, I'm not saying as a treat every once in a while you can't add to your cooked carrots, or asparagus.

The war against gluten, the problem with bacon, teens and social media, a sad kid at the zoo and apple season all caught my attention this week.

RECIPE: A Healthier Pumpkin Scone

A traditional Pumpkin Scone from Starbucks has 480 calories, 17 g fat, 78 g of carbs, 43 g of sugar and 6 g protein. Sigh...that's like having a couple of chocolate bars. So, I wanted to create a scone that I'd eat too...and guess what...we like it even better than the original. I tested them side by side.

Whether by choice or chance, gluten is being ditched in hoards and droves. With GF foods becoming more accessible, it's easy to get caught up in the convenience and not ask the hard questions. Just because the package says "gluten-free" doesn't mean that it's automatically a healthy option. Be informed.

The good news with all of this gluten business is, if you eliminate it from your diet and you're sensitive, symptoms will get better. I have seen this many times clinically, spoken to many people who have experienced this, and the research corroborates these findings.

Gluten-free awareness is great as are the increasing number of "free from" products and restaurant menu choices. But gluten-free diets for those not diagnosed with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity are mostly hype -- until proven not.

It is the season my friends. The season of all things fruitastic and I can tell you that I am LOVING the bounty! Now, I wouldn't make you forgo your granny's fave secret for flakey pie crust and leave you dried out and crumbling without a super pie solution. This recipe also doesn't contain any weird soy modifiers, binding agents or suspect oils. Just goodness.

This recipe was inspired by Charlotte's Cottage Cheese Rolls.This is my new favorite go-to recipe when I want a light flakey pastry. This gluten-free dough is wonderful to work with. I've shown some of the ways I use this dough, maybe you have some more. One I didn't show is the icing glazed ones Charlotte made.

I recently visited the Fancy Food Show and was struck by how many women are hanging up their business suits and high heels and putting on aprons and hairnets and entering the food business -- specifically baked goods and healthy meal options.

I have tried several times to make gluten-free bagels that satisfy me the way the regular wheat ones used to -- my favourite order at Tim Hortons. I finally am happy with this recipe. I like the plain bagels with poppy seed tops, toasted and spread with cream cheese but you can change up the recipe by adding your favourite flavours and toppings.

Rhubarb is not only very easy to come by, but it's jam packed with vitamins, fibre and antioxidants, making it a powerhouse of nutrients. It is one of my fave sources of calcium -- but don't eat too much or you'll be a pooping machine! What I do have for you is this selection of seasonal rhubarb favourites.

According to my critics this is their favourite bread. It was a unanimous vote. My oldest granddaughter commented on how good it smelled and I offered her a slice to taste and she said, "Nanna, this is really good and I'm your best critic because I DO eat gluten!"

Somehow, a superfood that only health advocates like me have known about for years is now common fare for a wave of twentysomethings eating at trendy coffee shops and delis. Although there is no accounting for taste or trends, quinoa does have some powerful health benefits. It tastes great, it is high protein, and it is part of another major food trend of today: gluten free eating.

Why does it seem that everything we consume these days is surrounded with guilt or stigma. Everything I go to eat lately makes me think a bit harder about what I am putting into my body. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, it just has me thinking.
