  1. Have you tried the coconut milk creamers? They are sold under the "So Delicous" label. I really like the flavor as a creamy substitue and have to have the bit of sweet in my coffee as well!
  2. Tazo Tea

    I've never had trouble with any of their teas, and I am extremely sensitive. Have you eliminated dairy? That can be troublesome while you are healing for most people.
  3. Name Brand Foods Please....

    Flavorings is the red flag imo. I would call on that one.
  4. Glutened!

    I am 1 year into this and have been doing remarkably well. I think I've gotten too brave, because yesterday at Germanfest I asked about the brats (they were Usingers) and whether or not they had been boiled in beer. They were, but the manager offered to cook me one that wasn't in the beer. He came back, put it in a bun and handed it to me. Then I told him I couldn't have it and why, and he cooked me another one. Sure enough, in the middle fo the night last night I thought I was going to die!!! Major cramps and then D and sweats. I woke up this morning with a huge headache, but mostly better. I just want to be somewhat normal and eat fun food sometimes that is safe!! Any thoughts??
  5. Hi there, I am seriously considering going back on the SCD after about a year leave from it. I have celiac and found it to push me over the edge in the ehaling process last year. I was diagnosed about two years ago now (hey, my anniversary just passed!) and found ti so helpful. I am experiencing vague intolerances again. The motivation to go back on this diet is weak, though. Help!
  6. I have to agree with this post. I have endometriosis and it is alot like you have just described. I am on Nuvaring for three months on, 1 week off in order to control the symptoms. I did improve when I went gluten free, but the endometriosis still exists and can be quite painful to deal with. The only thing that keeps me regular is being on bc. I hope you figure this prob out!

  7. That has happened to me and I have never linked it to gluten, but it was certainly during more stressful times of my life. I've seen spiders and bats. I'm not even scared of those things! Although the spiders have been pretty big! Interesting!! A also have not had one of those dreams since I have been gluten-free!
  8. I drink alot of peppermint tea, it seems to calm my stomach.
  9. Hi, I have made a recipe called "Cemetary Cake" for the second time now, and it falls in the middle. It comes out of the oven looking great, and in the next few minutes sinks in. Is there an ingredient to add that would make this not happen? I can post the recipe if that helps. It is delicious regardless, very moist. I used Pamela's baking mix for the flour and there is no dairy including eggs in it. Thanks for any help the baking divas/divos can provide! Molly
  10. Long Eyelashes

    I have long eyelashes as well, and so do both of my children. Although my oldest does not have celiac and is in the least likely category according to the genetic testing.
  11. This will get better. The diet is a challenge at first, but you can master label-reading and knowing how to handle situations when you have to eat out. I have been diagnosed since April of 2007 and now I feel like a normal person! Even a year out, I didn't think it possible, because I was still not healed. I would have to say I was fortunate, because I did not have the psychological symptoms, like depression-but do understand that depression is a symptom of the disease!! You have had alot happen to you....know that there is a a way for you to feel better and you can do this. Have you considered not going through the biopsy? Many people on the board have not even had positive antibody tests, but know that gluten is the poison, and have proceeded from there. I am one that was so sick, when the antibody test came back positive, I went for total gluten and dairy free without the biospy. I also saw enough of a change on the diet to feel confident in that decision. Of course it is very personal. I am sorry that you are feeling so upset. Please know that I understand and have felt your pain. I only wish the best for you. Molly
  12. We have lots of snow here in Wisconsin!!! We've had three good storms in the last week-1 foot of snow last Friday, 6 inches on Sunday, 6 inches yesterday, and today we are getting about four of the wet heavy stuff. And of course our snow blower died during the first big storm!! Anyway, it is beautiful Christmas snow! Merry Christmas all! Molly
  13. I absolutely love rumaki. (Bacon-wrapped chestnuts) You can use gluten-free soy for the marinade.
  14. Threads like this can be so fun!! A couple of disagreements though-I actually had Nana's cookies before I was gluten free and liked them!! Oh well! And Chebe breadsticks and pizza crust are good to me as well. Least favs: 1. Energ Rice bread of course 2. Quinoa pasta was pretty nasty 3. Glutino cereal bars-weird aftertaste Favs: 1. Pamela's anything, but especially the chocolate chunk cookies 2. Namaste chocolate cake mix 3. Trader Joe's mini beef tacos
