Managing Celiac Disease with the Hot Logic
It seems these days there is an increasing number of people who experience gluten sensitivities or even worse, celiac disease. As someone who eats a paleo diet and avoids gluten products, the Hot Logic is a key tool in my lunch and dinner routine.
Recently, one of our loyal users shared the statement, "Well first I have to thank my good friend Bethany for gifting one to me. Then I have to say that as a Celiac this little oven has saved my life. Thank you Hot Logic!"
We appreciate Julie's shoutout that her Hot Logic is life saving.
Thanks to Julie and her important topic, let's talk about gluten sensitivity vs Celiac disease. As someone who has experienced over the past 15 years how to eat without gluten, I thought Julie's story was a good time to share how the Hot Logic makes it easy to eat gluten free.
What is Gluten?
Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, rye and barley. Have you ever made bread from scratch and notice how the dough has an elasticity or stickiness to it? That is gluten. Today, gluten is not only found in bread products but can be used as coatings, thickeners, vitamins, supplements, drinks and so much more. Reading labels becomes essential for those who suffer from a gluten intolerance or Celiac disease.
Gluten Intolerance vs Celiac Disease
A gluten sensitivity, also known as intolerance have problems with gluten which is much different than Celiac Disease. Those who are intolerant experience symptoms much like Celiac disease like fatigue, brain fog, joint pain and headaches.
People who suffer from Celiac Disease suffer from an autoimmune disease that leads to intestinal damage after consuming gluten preventing nutrient absorption. Ingesting gluten when suffering from Celiac disease can lead to additional health problems.
Why Hot Logic is awesome for Celiac!

Julie's testament is much appreciated as anyone who has to alter the way they eat due to health conditions can be hard. As she said, when you have to travel or want a fresh hot meal, not eating a salad every time is wonderful.
Gluten Free Dish
As I stated earlier, I also limit gluten and almost never eat it. Here is a quick and easy recipe full of flavor that heats great in the Hot Logic!
Cabbage, Ground Turkey and Bacon
This recipe is simple and easy! Beyond the seasoning, it only has 4 ingredients.
- 1 Package of Bacon
- 1 Package of Ground Turkey
- 1/2 head of Cabbage
- 1/2 an onion (I use sweet white onion)
- Seasonings: Salt/pepper/garlic powder/onion powder
When I do not cook everything from scratch, I almost always cook in a cast iron pan. To make this dish keep it very simple.
- Cut the bacon strips into small pieces and cook in the cast iron pan until the bacon comes to a crisp.
- Once the bacon is cooked, leave the grease in the pan and brown the ground turkey and onions.
- Once the turkey is browned, add the cabbage and bacon back into the pan with the onions and sausage. (if there is a lot of grease left, drain half of it away or soak it up with a paper towel).
- Add all the seasonings to the mixture. I don't measure so evenly spread each seasoning over the whole pan.
- Once the cabbage has a slight crisp but has softened, you can either serve and eat now or portion out into whatever containers you use in your Hot Logic.
This meal heats up perfectly in the Hot Logic and it is packed full of flavor for how easy it is to cook.
