CDF Expo VIP Experience – We have a Winner!

Meet The Winner of the C.D.F. VIP Experience:

Congratulations to Michelle!

Michelle entered the Celiac Disease Foundation - Facebook contest to win two free VIP tickets to our National Conference & EXPO with airfare and accommodations provided by CDF Proud Sponsor New Planet Beer.  Michelle is our lucky winner, and we are delighted for her and her husband to attend the Expo,  June 7-8 in Pasadena, CA.

Michelle smiles as she is happy to feel better on the gluten-free diet!

Michelle’s passion for health and wellness, and staying on a strict gluten-free diet will be an inspiration for many.  Michelle shares her story about how she found out she had celiac disease:

I was a middle school teacher for five years, but I left in 2008 because I felt burnt out.  Unknown to me at the time, I had celiac disease,  though I left my job because I thought teaching was taking a heavy toll on my health.

In February of 2010, I was diagnosed with gluten intolerance.  The nurse practitioner that I was seeing at the time gave that diagnosis without testing me.  I struggled with the gluten-free diet.  I felt better almost immediately but found it difficult to not lapse on it.  In August of 2012, my endocrinologist had me tested for celiac disease.  We both thought the test would come back negative, instead it came back a very high positive for celiac disease.  At this revelation, I realized that even a little bit of cheating on a gluten-free diet for me was not okay. I got very serious about maintaining a gluten-free diet and my health has improved tremendously for it.  I write a blog called “My Road to Good Health” about my journey with autoimmune disease (both celiac disease and hypothyroidism) and exercising.

On June 6th, the weekend of the CDF event, my husband and I will celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary.  We currently have two black labs and a cat.  All our pets, past and present are rescued.   We enjoy bicycling and riding our motorcycles.  I also enjoy taking yoga classes, reading and photography.  I turned 50 years young on May 25th.

We are so excited for Michelle and her husband to attend the CDF National Conference and Gluten-Free EXPO!

Cheers!

The recipe below was our summer kick-off recipe for Memorial Day Weekend. It is based on a little over a pound of ribs (3 huge ribs) and has rough measurements, but is easily adapted for a larger quantity of ribs. We hope you enjoy:

BeerNew Planet Pale Ale 

Mix the following rub ingredients in a ziplock bag:

Garlic Powder – Tablespoon

Onion Powder  -Tablespoon

Brown Sugar – 1/2 cup

Kosher salt – Teaspoon

Coffee Grounds – Dessert spoon

Sage & Celery Salt TSP each

Add ribs to ziplock, shake and let them sit for a long as you can be patient.

Quick Grill for marks, then into shallow pan. Heat oven to 225 degrees

- add 1/2 cup of Pale Ale + 1/2 Cup of OJ  - increase liquid based on # of ribs

Cover with foil & cook till ribs fall apart. Use 2 forks to “pull” the pork (shred).

Serve with Rice or Quinoa and some steamed Veggies.

Enjoy
