Welcome to the first edition of the newsletter for 2022.

The focus of this newsletter is Gluten free recipes. When initially starting on the failsafe diet, you do not need to cut out gluten unless you are not getting to baseline and have already established that it upsets your system. Coeliac Awareness Week is from 13th – 20th March. 1 in 70 Australians have coeliac disease, yet 4 out of 5 people remain undiagnosed. An estimated 80% of people with coeliac disease don't know they have it, yet early diagnosis reduces the risk of long term health complications. For more information about Coeliac disease, see the fact sheet below.

The newsletter will be moving to quarterly this year with the next one coming out in May. There is lots happening over the next 3 months; School returning, Chinese New Year and Easter. The bottom of the newsletter is links pf past newsletter covering these topics for you to look back on for some recipe ideas.

Take care and happy cooking!

Coeliac Awareness Week 13 – 20 March, 2022

Coeliac Awareness Week is an annual campaign that raises awareness about coeliac disease.

In people with coeliac disease (pronounced ‘seel-ee-ak’ and spelt celiac in some countries) the immune system reacts abnormally to gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and oats), causing small bowel damage. The tiny, finger-like projections which line the bowel (villi) become inflamed and flattened. This is referred to as villous atrophy. Villous atrophy reduces the surface area of the bowel available for nutrient absorption, which can lead to various gastrointestinal and malabsorptive symptoms. Symptoms can also be caused by chronic inflammation in other parts of the body. Coeliac disease can develop at any age and affects both men and women.

The symptoms of coeliac disease vary considerably. Some people experience severe symptoms while others are asymptomatic (they have no obvious symptoms at all).
Symptoms can include one or more of the following:

* Persistent gastrointestinal symptoms e.g. diarrhoea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, cramping, bloating, abdominal pain, steatorrhea
* Prolonged fatigue, weakness and lethargy
* Iron deficiency anaemia and/or other vitamin and mineral deficiencies
* Failure to thrive or delayed puberty in children
* Unexplained weight loss
* Severe or recurrent mouth ulcers
* Skin rashes such as dermatitis herpetiformis
