So many gluten-free things we could discuss today.
Should we talk about how Gwyneth Paltrow consistently talks about gluten-free, releases a gluten-free cookbook and then says she and her family eat bread and pasta?
Should we talk about how 1 in 3 people are now trying to be gluten-free, which means gluten-free is officially a full-blown fad?
Should we talk about my “Hot Yoga” class last night, where I was in a 104 degree room trying to get my body into positions it has no right being in?
Nah…let’s put our focus today on PROGRESS. As in celiac awareness progress, although oddly enough there was some social media chatter yesterday that maybe celiac is getting too much awareness lately. Huh??
Anyway, I want you to compare the two videos below. They both have two things in common. They feature Kathie Lee and Hoda and they talk about gluten.
Gluten-free Video 1: We’re Picky Eaters – July 2012
We had a nice discussion about this video here.
Gluten-free Video 2: Celiac is an Autoimmune Disease – March 2013
Sorry for the crappy quality. NBC apparently still thinks it’s 2005 and embeds their videos in Flash so I had to record it from my phone.
But do you see the shift? That’s called progress my friends. That’s why we need people like Miss Esposito being a celiac voice. As long as our disease can be discussed in these terms, there is no such thing as too much celiac awareness.
I thank Jennifer and I will also tip my cap to Kathie Lee and Hoda. You done good.
