Well the thing with apples, maybe I didn't explain it well? Some kinds of apples I'm perfectly fine after eating, others it's just maybe like a too acidid or unsettled feeling, that's asking for more food in it.. and once I do that, it goes away.. so that wouldn't be an allergy or anything, since eating something else makes it go away, would it be?
burdee -> Eh.. wish my body was as helpful as yours was, lol.. so think I'll need to go this route.
tarnalberry -> What 12 foods were you using? Maybe I could steal your plan. =D
Ummm.. do I need to worry about tooth paste and mouthwash? My mouthwash does have citrus in it?
Wow, thankies.. got a lot of responses here. Not online long though, so just skimmed. I'll come back and read through better later.. just wanted to let everyone know I didn't have any gluten filled cakes, so no one need to worry. =)
Thanks.. Hmmm.. well, didn't see anything for making cakes at the grocery store I went to, last week. They do have a nice gluten-free section. I dunno, if my body was actually feeling better on the diet, I wouldn't even considering it.. but when my body hasn't been considerate enough to start feeling better after 14 weeks being Gluten-free Casein-free.. why should I be nice to it on my Birthday?
Don't see anything to loose. Body never reacted to gluten anyway, and the casein reaction usually lasted a day. So may be a way to find out if my body has gotten use to not having gluten, and will react now? LOL
I most likely won't posion myself, just would be soooo much nicer if things were feeling better, so I'd see an actual reason not too! Hey, my day to be all woe is me, isn't it? =D
darlindeb25 -> I think her concern was if he recently ate something with gluten in it, since kissing can cause someone to get glutened.. and if he, well.. performed it on her. Sounds like yer thinking the other way around too?
Unless I'm wrong, reading it that way. Sorry! =)
Jill, I don't think you need to worry about sounding disgusting, considering how some here talk about certain bodily functions, lol.
Well, since I didn't actually do anything to prepare.. or take the time to figure out cakes that could be made that are Gluten-free Casein-free.. seems like no birthday cake today!
Guess, I'm fine with that.. though would it be that big of a deal if I just had fun for the day, spoil and posion myself with a nice yummy store bought cake? Oh gawd, then if that's okay.. why not have some yummy fast food for dinner, hehe.
It's not like I'm feeling any better yet anyway.. so wouldn't loose anything, LOL.
Though maybe I'd get to find out if my body has at least gotten use to being Gluten-free Casein-free? LOL
Never really had a reaction to gluten in the past.
Oh well.. something to consider I guess, despite it being so stupid. Just venting, since it'll be like my first birthday without a cake. *pouts*
Makes sense though, about not drinking with food, least I think so.
But no orange juice? *cries* That'd be the only thing I'd be drinking, besides water.. LOL.
Hmmm.. I tried looking for white rice, seems to have added stuff. Blecky. Few different brands did. So got some brown rice instead.
Don't like the idea of cutting out salt though.. would like to keep sugar and brown sugar too. Experimenting now with baking apples. Think that could make an elimination diet more fun. Yeah, haven't quite started it yet.
Umm.. question to anyone who knows. Are there apple allergies? Apples, depending on the kind.. would always leave my stomach, like unsettled.. like too acidic, maybe? And eating crackers, cookies, bread, etc.. afterwards would make it feel fine. So I doubt it would be an allergy? Of course, those things have to be gluten-free now.
And Banana's should be bad. They are an allergen? Cuz that would cut out my normal breakfast then, a banana, lol.
