  1. Hi, like Nikki I just want to say 'Hi and welcome' to Claire and Kate too ~ I live in the Midlands, Uk and have only recently become gluten-free (since end August). Although sticking to the diet has been much easier than I'd anticipated I've found it hard not to get glutened by mistake, despite reading numerous warnings on the board I had also been naive (or in denial) thinking that I'd feel much, much better by now - I do feel better in that I don't have D anymore and most often there's no urgency to rush to the bathroom, but I still feel really bloated and still have waves of exhaustion. I know that I need to cut out dairy, but I just can't face that at the moment. I've got an appointment with a gastroenterologist (spelling?!) in late Nov so I'll wait til then before I make any more changes. Best wishes to everyone Deb Oh ~ the shortbread biscuits in Sainsbury's, the Dietary Specials brand, are delicious!!
  2. Thanks for the info and link Nikki!
  3. I drove past McDs today and began thinking about their vanilla milkshake ! Does anyone know if their milkshakes or 'McFlurry' ice cream is gluten-free? And what about the fries? I go there occasionally with my young child so I'd really appreciate knowing if there's anything 'safe' in there. Deb
  4. Mmmm, sounds good!
  5. Pataks is ready available in supermarkets in the UK and it seems that most if not all of their brand is gluten-free as well as very tasty Please post when you've tried the curry - hope you like it! Deb
  6. Thanks for your replies and thanks Andrea for the info - I've printed it off to show my husband as it may help him to understand why I get so tired! This really is a mine-field isn't it? I will keep reading around and I'm sure that I'll try to go dairy free but I just cannot face that right now, still adjusting to gluten-free diet Best wishes to you all, Deb
  7. Hi I posted this yesterday but visiting the board again today I think I sort of hijacked someone else's thread I'm very new to gluten-free living and have been gluten-free for only a few weeks. By the 2nd day I felt a big improvement - no more D or rushing to the toilet after eating. I began to think that this was wonderful. However, over the last couple of weeks I'm not feeling so good again. My stomach's nowhere near as bad as before gluten-free, but it seems more sensitive somehow - I've had an increase in going to toilet again (although no urgency) and an increase in wind and I've also felt very tired again over the last week and back ache. I think what I want to share and ask for comments is this - I'm not sure whether my tiredness, back ache, bloating is due to being glutened or just whether I'd feel tired anyway (I am kinda busy most of the time) Any thoughts please? I've just thought as I've read over my message - for years I've had back ache and noticed that it was always worse on days when I felt very tired and used to say this to my husband - there's no apparant reason for my back to ache, has this been due to gluten do you think? Thanks, Deb

  9. Well yes, here in the UK. Sorry, it's easy to just assume that all ingredients that we're familiar with are available everywhere . it's just ready-made meringue (egg whites and sugar) which is then crushed.
  10. My sister-in-law very kindly made this for us when we went to visit her a couple of weeks ago: MERINGUE BOMBE. 4oz meringue nests 10oz double cream 5oz single cream 8oz raspberries 3tbsp icing sugar Puree raspberries with icing sugar Pass through a sieve Crush meringues Whip the two creams together until they form soft peaks Fold meringues into the cream Fold in half of the puree gently Freeze in 1½pt basin Serve with remaining puree Delicious!!
  11. White bean, honey and rosemary dip ~ • 400g / 14oz tin butter beans / cannellini or other creamy beans, drained • 1 tbsp honey • 1 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped • 1 clove garlic, crushed • ½ tsp salt • 2 tbsp olive oil • Juice of half a lemon Puree all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Add some water if the mixture is too thick. This keeps for one week, refrigerated. Makes 2 good portions Another big hit with my friends!
  12. Jungle Curry ~ Fry together 1 sliced red onion, 450g (1lb) chunks of chicken breast, a handful of diced new potatoes, 1cm finely chopped ginger and 2 tbsp korma curry paste. When golden, pour over 1 x 400ml can coconut milk, 2 tbsp fish or soy sauce and a pinch of sugar. Cook for 10 mins until chicken is cooked through. Then serve sprinkled with a little chopped chilli and some coriander leaves and rice. I find as above serves 2-3. I double the ingredients to make 4 good helpings except for chicken breasts – I use 4 breasts for 4 people. I use about 4 small new pots per person. Pataks korma curry paste is good. I use fish sauce (in a bottle on Thai / Chinese shelf of supermkt). I use 1 large chilli for 4 people. Before end of cooking I tend to add a little cornflour in water to thicken and make it creamy. This is so tasty ~ I hope you enjoy it!
  13. Thanks for the recipe, I made some this afternoon and they were lovely It's pouring with rain here and when I fetched my four-yr old from school she was able to walk into the smell of baking and peanut butter cookies to have with her cup of tea
  14. Thanks everyone, I'm now suitably informed
