If you'd like to join in on this week's topic by writing a Hub, follow these steps:
1) Click here to visit this week's topic.
2) Click the green button "answer this question".
3) Click the gray button below the box (leave that empty) that says "make a Hub about it."
4) Give your Hub a very specific title, like Easy Summer Gardening Projects for Kids or Challenging Summer Activities for Teens
5) Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
6) After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this forum thread and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.
If you're not writing a gluten-free recipe, you'll need to re-categorize your Hub after publishing it, since answering the question with a Hub will automatically put it in that category, but it's no trouble to do so.
For more information on the Weekly Topic Inspiration program, check out the Learning Center guide.
I'm looking forward to reading your gluten-free Hubs!
Well, I have reserved the hub url and title: "Gluten! The Untold Story!"
However, I have absolutely no idea what will show up in it.
I don't personally know anyone who needs a gluten-free diet, but this is an important health topic, so I imagine there will be lots of entries.
Well, this hub isn't a barn-burner, but maybe it will save a life or two.

Hey, folks! To anyone who wants to, you can post a link to your gluten-related hub in the comments of my gluten-related hub. For this particular hub, I'm fine with that. I consider the thing as just a gateway hub anyway. Better to send traffic to other hubbers, rather than just to the .gov sites.
This is great, paradigmsearch! The summary and links are most helpful!
paradigmsearch-this was a wonderful hub and I really appreciated your explanation.
Transitioning from a traditional diet to a gluten free diet creates a million questions in your mind. At least it did for me.
I wrote this hub as a starting point to understand where and how to find the basic foods necessary to feed ourselves. Afterall, if we can't source gluten free, we can't eat.
Gluten Free Living - Where and How to Find Gluten Free Cooking and Baking Ingredients
This is the first in a series for me.... hopefully, I will have the entire series completed by the end of the Weekly Topic Inspiration.
@ Simone -- Great topic!! Finally, one that I can easily write about.
Wow, cool- the first in a series! I can certainly say that you're off to a good start!
Beth-woo hoo! I'm glad you've come out to play. Enjoy the topic. I will read it a bit later...see ya
I shall have to meditate on this for a bit and then hopefully produce another gluten free hub. I have approx 50 years experience of a gluten free diet that is getting more complex as the years pass. So many manufacturers fill foods with gluten just to bulk them up!
Is there a benefit to a gluten free diet if I don't have a problem?
@ Mike -- there are benefits to living gluten free, but you must ensure that your diet is balanced. Check out paradigmsearch's hub (above) as a starting point.
As promised, Gluten Free Living: Basic Pantry items for Cooking and Baking - Dry Goods is the second installment in my series of cooking and baking gluten free for oneself. This particular hub suggests what gluten free dry items should become a staple in your pantry for gluten free cooking and baking.
I'm not gluten free myself, but friends of mine who are report it is very difficult unless you are willing to always take care of your own food. Restaurants and even friends and relatives will not be prepared to meet your requirements. In fact they will be offended if you expect them to.
I just published my first hub in what I plan to make into a three-part series. This hub is all about what people who are gluten-free need to know about barley. http://wordscribe43.hubpages.com/hub/Is … luten-Free
I worked in pediatric diabetes and endocrinology clinic where we saw many kids with Celiac disease and my daughter had to be gluten-free for a time. So, this is a topic close to my heart... and a very important one.
I've published a hub about gluten-free flours, and I include a recipe for gluten-free pumpkin muffins in the hub. I'm interested in gluten-free foods because although I don't have celiac disease I've discovered that I need to restrict wheat and rye in my diet to avoid certain health problems.

My hub is about religion- the trouble a celiac can have following the rites and traditions of their church
Gluten free living is easy and affordable without compromising much with your taste buds just go for the right place online or offline

Simone, I think you've picked a very interesting topic.
Is there a big taste difference? Why mention it to friends if it tastes very similar. It is also a small fad for athletes similar to core strengthening workouts. In a study, the core trained vs. normal workout people had similar performance which is how I feel if you take gluten out or reduce it. I just want to be sold on the benefit like I know an abundant fruit & veggie diet is good or less carbs at night.
Here's my yummy Thai Beef Soup recipe - an easy main course for both gluten-free and low carb diets.
Gluten-Free, Low Carb Main-Course Soup - Grilled Beef Thai
This is the third installment in my series. We've covered the pantry, now it's off to the fridge, freezer and cupboard in Gluten Free Living: Fresh, Refrigerated, Canned and Frozen Items for Cooking and Baking (oh, yea, quite a mouthful!!!)
Experimenting with gluten free recipes has shown me that we can love living gluten free rather than consider it an irritation--as long as we can have chocolate! It's important to have a very good repertoire of chocolate recipes no matter what our diet restrictions may be and we were quite pleased with the final results of my gluten free brownie recipe. Besides including the recipe, my hub has a brief discussion about loving living gluten free. It will be neat to check out the other gluten free recipes posted this week. I've already seen some that I want to go back to. Glad this was the weekly topic!
I can't agree with you more on that front! Here's a link to RTalloni's Hub, y'all: http://rtalloni.hubpages.com/hub/Love-L … nie-Recipe
I have a relative with Celiacs disease, so this topic is a great read for me!
I know my relative spends a lot of money on gluten-free food, so I will surely look for homemade recipes on HubPages, so they can possibly stop buying a $7.00 small box of gluten-free cookies.
Well I like cooking and I had some gluten free flour in my cupboard from when a friend visited so I thought I would document my efforts to make gluten free bread in a slightly restricted kitchen!
http://azure11.hubpages.com/hub/Making- … ree-Bread/
My second hub about gluten-free living describes the nutritional benefits of buckwheat, a healthy gluten-free grain substitute, and some ways in which it can be used.
