Your round ups of links suck me in and suddenly I’ve lost a couple of hours with fascinating reading. Thanks for including one of mine – an honour.
And thank you for writing such a fabulous guide. -Sarah
So many gems, as usual. Off to find a shoe and (pretty rare in Australia now!) a wine bottle with a cork.
Glad you like them! Greetings from a very hot Joburg too. -Sarah
Reblogged this on Glenda the Good Foodie and commented:
Food Stamps Process
Regarding celiac disease testing, holistic practitioners already have an easier way. Avoid all four glutens (wheat, rye, oats, and barley) then reintroduce one at a time with three days in between each one. That way you know which ones effect you and which ones don’t.
Still, if the can develop a simple blood test, that would be awesome.
