NY Times gluten-free Easter treats and a CNN article

So, you're hankering for some Easter candy, but you're not sure which candy is safe to eat? Why not try and make your own!
This is a "homeade peeps" recipe from the NY Times:
I would try it with pink (cranberry juice maybe?) instead of the saffron and do bunny shapes.

And: Will a gluten-free diet improve your health?
CNN did a kind of half-lame, half-useful article on gluten-free diets and gluten intolerance and celiac. I mean, most science articles in mainstream news are like that, I suppose, so I can't be too upset.
I would venture to guess that I am not the only person in the world who benefited tremendously from not eating wheat - and bread was about my favorite thing on earth, so if I can skip it, I know you can, too. I encourage my family and friends to try going two weeks completely gluten-free, and seeing if they don't see a difference in their skin, digestion, energy levels, etc. It's not always waking up one day, like I did, with anaphylaxis when you eat a cookie. Sometimes it's more subtle. I have a feeling I was having stomach problems for years that were connected to eating wheat, a low-level building-up problem that eventually went into crisis mode. Anyway, you have nothing to lose and possibly better health to gain, so why not try it?
