Day 5: Salmon

I don't like fish. Generally, the taste it leaves at the back of my throat makes me gag. Thank goodness for popcorn shrimp or I never would have eaten out growing up otherwise. (Red Lobster was our family's restaurant of choice.)

But then came Celiac and my popcorn shrimp was out. What to do?! My mother concocted a simple salmon recipe for my father (a fellow Celiac suffer) to have and eventually I risked it. To my surprise, I loved it.

Since then, I've found salmon to be a common "safe" food when eating out. Instead of being marinated, it is often just glazed and they are happy to leave the sauce off.

I would love to include the salmon recipe, but my mother hasn't sent it to me yet. I know it involves salmon, butter, and lemon zest. Watch this space for more soon!

    Celiac Information:

    > Serology ( Blood testing ) as well as Biopsy requires the presence of antibodies to gluten.

    > A gluten-free diet reduces circulating antibodies thus compromising a proper diagnosis. There are no clear guidelines for a proper gluten challenge to ensure sufficient circulating antibodies for a positive result; some individuals requires 1 month, other years.

    > Key Take HOME Message !

    With 1 in 100 being affected,
    Rule out Celiac Disease > Before going Gluten-Free
    Regardless of Rationale.

  2. Thanks, Stephen. I have been tested and have an official diagnosis.
