Can children eat gluten-free at camp?

My oldest daughter went off to summer camp for the first time this year.  I was proud of her, but worried about her, too.  Would she be happy with strangers?  Would they feed her?  She had fun, even though they made her hike!  She did find gluten-free stuff to eat, even though it was Rice Crispies or a tub of cream cheese without the bagel.  It was a good thing we packed her a survival kit of kippers and jerky, because she would have gone hungry some days without them.

Hello Again

It's time to start blogging again!  I have so many interesting links that they fill up TwinFreaks blog and overflow into this blog.   I'll put up my reading list someday, but for now, here are the things I've been reading lately.  Coach D's blog, of course.    I've discovered Twitter and I am getting all this fabulous reading material.  Jimmy Moore, the Livin La Vida Low Carb podcast guy has a bunch of interesting stuff, for instance.   That Paleo Guy, Jaime Scott from ChristChurch NZ is a rather well educated blogger who is very interesting (post-graduate diplomas in sport & exercise medicine and in nutritional medicine).  Dr. William Davis is not a Paleo proponent , but he has a new book out I want to read called Wheat Belly -- he dishes the dirt on some good reasons not to eat oatmeal and other non-gluten grains.
