Celiac disease affects as many as 2 million Americans. These people are unable to tolerate the protein gluten, which is found in wheat, rye, and barley. There is only one treatment for celiac disease and that is strict adherence to a gluten-free diet for life. Learning and following a gluten-free diet are not easy tasks. People with celiac disease need help to learn how to manage their diets and their lives. The Gluten-Free Templates are one tool to help you get started. These templates are full of simple meal ideas that are completely gluten-free. They incorporate foods that are naturally free of gluten as well as specialized foods that are produced without gluten. These templates can act as a learning tool. However, they should not substitute visits to a physician and a dietitian specializing in this condition. Instead, these templates should be used as a complement to their instruction. If you suspect celiac disease, it is extremely important that you are properly diagnosed before beginning a gluten-free diet. Disclaimer: Even though foods contained in these templates are at present gluten-free, the user still needs to read ALL food labels for possible gluten-containing ingredients. Manufacturers continually make changes to ingredients and/or production methods without notice.

By the time most people reach the age of 50 or 60 they tend to accept the negative effects of aging as a fact of life that they have little or no control over. However, there are some factors that people DO have control over and one of those is their nutritional intake. There is a large body of evidence that suggests that there are positive effects we can have on aging that deal directly with the foods we eat. The good news is that good nutrition incorporated into our lifestyle can help improve energy level, heart function, blood pressure, bone density, and bowel function as well as help keep weight in a healthy range and help prevent certain diseases such as cancer. As we age it is important to concentrate on spending calories wisely, consuming enough protein and calcium, as well as maintaining your intake of vitamin D, iron, vitamin A, folate, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and zinc. The Healthy Aging Templates ensure that you receive all of the proper nutrition necessary to help make aging a healthy time of your life.
