Gluten Free Pasta Recipe for Celiac Disease Awareness Month
Allergiesandme.com’s website is a wealth of information and continues to add resources weekly. The company is focused on giving back to their customers and in support of Celiac Disease Awareness month, they are featuring a new Gluten Free Recipe.
Through her blog, Kelly shares healthy living tips and recipes. She agreed to share one of her favorites with Allergiesandme.com. The recipe includes two ingredient substitutions sold in the online store to allow those on a Gluten Free diet to try it. Kelly says, “Nutrition can get very scientific and be very confusing causing most people to just throw up their hands in disgust. My mission is to be the bridge between the science and the everyday life. I want to help people see that eating healthy is easy, fun and best of all it can taste REALLY good!”
The newest recipe addition is called Fettuccine with Walnut Sauce. Using the ingredients indicated, the dish is Gluten Free, Wheat Free, Soy Free and Nut Free.

According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness:
Celiac disease is an autoimmune digestive disease that damages the villi of the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.
One in 133 Americans has or is misdiagnosed with other conditions.
10 years is the average time a person waits to be correctly diagnosed.
17% of celiac patients have an immediate family member who also has celiac.
Celiac disease can lead to a number of other disorders including infertility, reduced bone density, neurological disorders, some cancers, and other autoimmune diseases.
$5,000-$12,000 is the average cost of misdiagnosis per person/per year of celiac, not including lost work time.
There are NO pharmaceutical cures for celiac disease.
A 100% gluten-free diet is the only existing treatment for celiac today.
500,000 new celiac diagnoses are expected to occur in the next 5 years thanks to efforts to raise public awareness of celiac disease.
