Recipe of the Month

Lobster Newburg

This is rich and decedent. Can’t eat this every night although you might want to! Heats up well the next day if there are any left overs!

Ask The Dietitian (NEW)

Do you have unanswered general nutrition questions about the gluten-free diet and lifestyle?

Melinda Dennis is NCA’s Senior Dietitian Consultant and is happy to answer them. Look for answers on the website and in the following month’s e-newsletter.

How to send your questions:
Please submit questions that are applicable to a general gluten-free audience. We regret that personal clinical questions (medical history, labs, supplements, etc.) cannot be addressed. 

Time allowing, every effort will be made to answer submitted questions by the next month’s e-newsletter but may be delayed.

Questions related to children or teens (17 years old and under) will be sent to clinicians at Boston Children’s Hospital and may require more time.

What Celiacs Need to Know

NCA held What Celiacs Need to Know on Sunday October 29th. Endocrinologist Partha Sinha discussed maintaining a healthy skeleton. Harvard University student Emma Clerx shared insight from her internship this past summer. Nutritionist Melinda Dennis provided a summary of current topics including arsenic, probiotics and non-responsive celiac disease.
