  1. Coconut Flour

    I've made a few things with coconut flour, and i've found that most online recipes just don't make much. I usually have to cdouble a recipe to get a 'normal' amount of bread or cupcakes. It is very healthy, but you better REALLY like coconut if thats the only flour you're using. I tend to prefer it added to something else. I'm totally trying those biscuits!
  2. Gas, Help

    Can I go off-topic here? I tried to ask a question about Dermatitis Herpetiformis on the DH forum, but that was a number of days ago and no one has responded. I'd really like some advice, would anyone be willing to answer a few questions I have about it?
  3. Celiac Episode Clear Without Gluten Free?

    Meredith, I used to have symptoms that came and went as well. No explanation, just the body trying to recover on it's own I guess.
  4. Thanks for the info! Good to know.....
  5. Tell Me Something.....

    I know it's not fair, but it sounds like the easiest solution would be to monitor your own handwashing habits. Just DON'T TOUCH THE FACE!!! I yell that at myself almot every day......
  6. Help! Have To Eat Gluten Again!

    I couldn't agree more with Ursa. There is no medical reason to get a Celiac diagnosis, YOU already know you feel better. Why bother? What exact purpose would this diagnosis serve, really?
  7. Still Not Better

    I would honestly be a little suspicious about eating all that fish. If he has Celiac disease (and yes, if the blood tests say he does, then he does, there are no false positives) then his immune system is not up to par and he may be very overloaded with mercury. Fish just isn't safe on a regular basis anymore, for a HEALTHY person, I'd say max once a week. I don't know why you don't eat much meat but I would consider rethinking it, and adding back some organic meat. And I would get him a heavy metal test, STAT. His body is trying to heal, he needs protein and vitamins.
  8. I used to get that too, I started using an electric razor and it went away. Turns out I just have really sensitive skin, that doesn't handle a razor well. The only other way I'm able to shave is in a bath and pour a bunch of cocoa butter oil or baby oil or something in and shave under water, it keeps the blade from cutting you. Unfortunately I no longer have a bathtub, so I'm stuck with the electric. Hope that helps. (sorry off-topic!)
  9. As for romantic gluten-free dinners, I recently discovered that if you put 1 1/2 pounds of london broil in a crockpot and pour one can of tomato soup and one can of cream of anything soup in, add whatever spices you like, you get the MOST fabulous meat ever. You can't even get it out with a fork, you have to use a ladle because the meat falls apart. Great way to use up chep cuts of meat, the tomato tenderizes it. I'm trying it with stewed tomatoes instead of soup, we'll see how that goes! Just serve with mashed potatoes and the gravy from the pot and peas, if your guys a 'home-cookin' guy that will qualify as romantic.
  10. Pink Ideas Needed!

    Did I read that right? ..... *scratches head...... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!! I'll be doing that for mine!
  11. Symptom Check

    Here's a list for ya Blood pressure plummets so I pass out a lot Sensitivity to light SERIOUSLY lowered IQ, I swear I get stupider Anxiety Brain fog (oh the dreaded brain fog) little d low-grade fever awful headaches weakness fatigue unrelenting nausea, no puking lip sores unusually active mucous membrans (snotty nose) bad seasonal and animal allergies And this past time I got glutened, for the first time I was temporarily lactose intolerant AND I got DH for the first time! After three years gluten-free. Has that happened to anyone else, getting DH so far down the road?
  12. Anyone Ever Cheat On This Diet?

    For everyone that has a craving for a particular food, you might visit the Recipes forum a little farther down the page from Coping With. They have debates over gluten-free pizza crust, whether thin-crust or deep dish, floppy or crispy, you really can have good gluten-free food. I actually made the hot fudge cake on the home page recipes section, oh my god... kinda came out pudding-y but SO friggin good. For anyone that's tempted to cheat, here's a horror story. I was never lactose intolerant with my Celiac, I think my GI symptoms weren't active long enough to cause enough damage. However, I ate Sam's club rotisserie chicken three or so weeks ago, and not only did I have to deal with a massive headache for days, brain fog, a fever, and excess crapping, but a week after I "recovered" (or so I thought) from my glutening, I started getting the worst diarrhea I've ever experienced. Like someone was stabbing me in the stomach. I've had a colonoscopy and the drug they give you to clean you out didn't hurt this bad. Apparently I'm now either temporarily or permanently lactose intolerant. I say that because I take Lactase every time I eat dairy now and I'm fine, so it's not the casein. And guess what else? I just got Dermatitis Herpetiformis for the first time last week! You know, this might be the worst thing of all of it, because absolutely NOTHING stops the itch! I'm going bonkers! Don't cheat! I will personally provide you with a fabulous recipe or source for gluten free anything you want, don't wind up like me! GLUTEN=SUFFERING!
  13. Normal Food Suggestions

    On the Hunt's website it says that they use distilled vinegar for the ketchup, so they won't claim it gluten-free. Should I still avoid it, how long ago was this test done?
