Once again it’s time to chat with Ellen Bayens of about articles and information she has brought to our attention over the past month.  Ellen and I speak about the curious condition of Giardia and its similarities with celiac disease.  We re-visit my recent podcast about the dual-branded alcoholic beverages that are causing great confusion in the celiac/gluten free community.  A new drink called Bud Light Seltzer will soon be on the market in Canada, and Ellen and I both have questions.  Ellen introduces us to Mike Rose who, requiring a gluten free diet for himself and his wife, has recently moved into a retirement home.  I will be having Mike on an upcoming podcast to take a closer look at his challenges and decisions on making the move.  Ellen and I can’t get away from talking about food and this month is no different.  We chat about a gluten free pizza truck in Victoria called The Art of Slow Food. Ellen has also recently discovered Brazilian Cheese puffs sold frozen from a company called Forno de Minas.  I’ve included a link to the Brazilian Market, so you can see what they look like.  Ellen shared with us the story of a student from away staying with a local family in her area.  The student, who reached out to Ellen is celiac and the homestay family is not familiar with the gluten free diet.  Ellen put out a call, and very quickly many gluten free families stepped up to host the student.  The problem was solved – well done Ellen!
