It's National Celiac Awareness Day!

In case you needed a refresher:
Celiac disease is a lifelong autoimmune condition. Gluten consumption triggers a toxic reaction that causes damage to the small intestine - basically, the body attacks itself any time gluten, even minuscule amounts, is consumed. Learn more at

And there's exciting news in honor of the day from perennial celiac ally P.F. Chang's: "We'd like to take this opportunity to recognize and thank the gluten free community for their continued support. Today our gluten free menu expands to 29 choices with the addition of our NEW Triple Chocolate Mousse mini dessert. Enjoy three sinful layers of Chocolate Ganache, Milk Chocolate Mousse, and Flourless Chocolate Cake." Awesome!

They also include links to two GF recipes:
Gluten Free Shanghai Cucumbers
Gluten Free Mongolian Beef

p.s. Fellow True Blood fans may be interested to know that the stunning Deborah Ann Woll (who plays Jessica) semi-recently disclosed that she has celiac disease. I knew there was something extra cool about her.
