Mike and Cam have devoted numerous podcasts debating the downside of the gluten free trend. On this show we talk about some of the positive effects that the gluten free "fad" dieters and celebrities who started this avalanche have had on our community.
Is all gluten free food created equal? When something is "certified" gluten free does that guarantee that the product is for sure under 20 PPM gluten free? Based on some research conducted by The Gluten Free Watchdog, Mike and Cam discuss the realities of gluten free labeling and the fact that we might not always be getting something that is completely safe for someone with celiac disease or who is very gluten sensitive.
Inspired by many listener emails and messages, Mike and Cam have a candid conversation about the correlation between anxiety and celiac disease or gluten sensitivity/intolerance--and it gets personal! They discuss the differences between the anxiety pre-gluten free vs. post-gluten free diet. They also share some of their own tips on dealing with anxiety when it rears it's ugly head.
We are excited to be joined by Maizy Boosin, the outspoken young celiac, who was winner of an episode of this season's Chopped Jr. (Season 4 episode entitled "Cup of Glee"). Maizy talks about how she got on the show, what's inspires her as a chef, and why it is so important to her to advocate for celiac disease.
