It’s the beginning of April, which for me means that I get to chat with my friend Ellen Bayens of theceliacscene.com about interesting articles and studies she has brought to our attention over the past month. I had to record with Ellen prior to end of the March as I was preparing for knee surgery. Ellen kept posting and you can keep up with her work by subscribing to her monthly newsletter through her website. Ellen and I both had copies of the recent booklet produced by Celiac Canada with the preliminary results from their recent survey. There is so much information in these numbers and the ..read more

This episode is a follow up to Episode 298 when I attended an event called The State of Celiac Disease in Canada during the last week of February. Celiac Canada held the event to present the preliminary results of the recent national survey. During the event, Melissa Secord the Executive Director of Celiac Canada spoke. I had more questions for Melissa, so I invited her on to this episode of the Podcast. Now that the preliminary results of the survey were being evaluated, I wanted to know more about what the results meant to Celiac Canada, and how they were going to use what they were learning ..read more

Ep 299 A Child’s Diagnosis

1M ago
I recently realized that although many of the people I speak with have been involved in the celiac and gluten free community for many years, I wasn’t well acquainted with the families of the newly diagnosed. When I operated my bakery, I was often the first celiac that people met after their diagnosis – it appears doctors were sending them my way. Since closing the bakery, I’ve built on my knowledge, but I must admit, I need a new perspective on what it’s like to raise a celiac child today. Ellen Bayens (theceliacscene.com) was kind enough to introduce me to Kelsea. She is a mom of a busy 10-ye ..read more

During the last week of February, Celiac Canada held an event called The State of Celiac Disease in Canada, during which the preliminary results of the recent national survey were presented. I was invited to bring my podcast equipment to the event and record conversations with some of those involved. This episode was recorded at the event, so you will notice some distortion and background noise in the audio – there was lots going on. I had the pleasure of speaking with James King. James has been a guest on the podcast previously, but this conversation was all about survey results. James is an ..read more

It’s time to catch up with Ellen Bayens of theceliacscene.com for the beginning of March 2024. I have the opportunity to review some of the articles Ellen has brought to our attention over the past month and ask questions as well as interject my own thoughts. We talk about a line of granola snacks and breakfast s foods that recently had their “gluten free” designation removed because the manufacturer is no longer using gluten free oat products. As consumers we must accept this as a business decision, but the concern of both Ellen and I was the lack of awareness with consumers of this big chang ..read more

by admin
2M ago
On this episode I speak with Diane Bertrand from a company called English Bay. I wasn’t familiar with English Bay, and that’s because they produce foods for other companies. They do, however maintain a gluten free food manufacturing facility and when the owners of Kinnikinnick were looking for a good time to retire, after all the difficulties of running a specialized food business during the pandemic, English Bay seemed like the perfect fit. Diane fills us in on the plans for Kinnikinnick going forward, and it’s comforting to know that not only will things ramp up to get more product into stor ..read more

Ep 250 How To Get More Fibre with Cinde
A Canadian Celiac Blog
by admin
2M ago
On a recent podcast I spoke with Ellen Bayens about the importance of fibre in a gluten free diet. This topic keeps coming up whenever I speak to someone who is knowledgeable about nutrition. The fact is that most people in general, are not getting close to their recommended intake of fibre. When we talk about those on a gluten free diet, it’s very evident that fibre plays a major role in overall gut health and more effort should be made to increase the fibre in our daily diet. This is where my guest comes in – Cinde, The Everyday Gluten Free Gourmet has lots of suggestions and recipes that ca ..read more

Its the beginning of February which means I get the chance to speak with my friend Ellen Bayens of theceliacscene.com to discuss some of the articles she has brought to our attention over the past month. This month is focussing on gut health and those confusing supplements we are seeing everywhere that suggest some of our digestive issues can be solved with a pill that will improve our gut microbiome and in turn our gut health. Ellen breaks down all of the hype and wording around the supplements as well as the studies that are often quoted by supplement providers. We also talk about the change ..read more

On podcast episode 284 I invited you to find out more about a European River Cruise that was being organized by Expedia Cruises, or more specifically, Dianna McIntosh from Ottawa. There was a very tight timeline to book, which made bringing everything together very difficult. Since that time, Dianna and Expedia Cruises have pivoted to a different provider, a slightly smaller ship, but with even more spaces suitable for the group. The new dates of the cruise are now May 3rd to May 10th, 2025. There are exciting other changes as well. You can find out more by contacting Dianna directly at dmcint ..read more

On this podcast I speak with Dr. Diana Mager. Dr. Mager has been on the podcast previously while she and her team were working hard to formulate a Food Guide for Celiac Children and was soliciting input from parents across the country. The Food Guide is now available and that gives me a great opportunity to invite Dr. Mager back to ask her some questions on the team’s findings as well as how parents can both get and use the Food Guide and its related resources. The Gluten Free Food Guide is freely available for download to anyone who would like to access it via: https://drive.google.com/f ..read more
