  1. What astounds me is that my girl is an educator.  Apparently intelligent. She came to the conclusion that the children were most likely Celiac based on the fact that I am and that they all share the same symptoms with me, although not to quite the same severity and extent that I do. And to the fact that those symptoms disappeared when they removed gluten from their diet.  Also, they do not have the other autoimmune issues that I do.  The biggest tell for all of us is the bloat and particularly for the kids and grandkids, the horrible, peel-the-paint-off-the-walls gas.  Since my daughter has been using Gluten Cutter, she has been laughing at how terrible her gas is.  HELLO!  Tummy doesn't hurt sweetie, but you can still clear the room at twenty paces?  Oh yes, this MUST be the wonderful cure we have all been waiting for!!!  Yeesh!  
  2. Thanks very much to all of you for your replies.  I can't believe the girl is actually drinking beer and eating pizza.  She is normally very health conscious.  An avid runner.  Was a Vegan for a while. Dairy Free for a while.  Her choice but hard to see her take the gluten away from two of the kids and then give it back.  They trust her to make reasonable decisions about their health.  I would have a very hard time taking a pill and then trusting to take that first big bite of pizza for fear that I would be sicker than a dog within 15 minutes.  Again, thanks very much for your responses and the related articles.
  3. My three daughters and I have Celiac disease, as well as at least two of our grandchildren. I have been gluten-free for about 7years and my daughters have for about 3 years.  My oldest daughter, who has 4 children (two w/ celiac and we strongly suspect that the other two do as well), recently discovered Gluten Cutter.  She says it is the next best thing to sliced bread and says she is 'beta' testing it by taking it and ingesting as much gluten as she can.  Beer, donuts, pizza.  You name it.  She says it works wonderfully well and has given it to the two known celiac children so that they can go back to eating the foods they love.  I tried to caution her that just because she is not actually feeling the ill effects of gluten, she is most definitely continuing to hurt herself and to do the same to her children and that the result could mean serious problems for her and her children for years in the future if not for the rest of their lives. Heavy sigh.... Curious to know what anyone else's experience with this miracle drug might be?
  4. I love the deli Rye.  It makes amazing Rueben sandwiches and will be a great addition to our annual corned beef and cabbage meal on St. Patty's day.
  5. UPDATE: Just purchased and used the Ninja 1200 for the first time and so far I love it! Used it to make the frozzen white sangria as listed on one of the recipe cards that came with it and it is (falsetto voice) Awesome!!! Had no problem unpacking it or taking it apart or putting it together as several stated that they had in their reviews. And look ma! No cuts either. Not sure if this makes me a rocket scientist or if I fall under the category of babes and fools but so far, so good.
  6. Do you find that the food processor works well for cake mixes and bread doughs?
  7. I actually had a nice stand mixer but it stopped dead in it's tracks and when I took it apart because yes, if it's already broken, I might as well break it some more, it looked like a lot of flour had lodged up inside of the housing and my guess is that is the most likely cause of it's untimely death. As I said in my original post, the ninja appears to be a good answer because it has a lid, which would help with the flying flour issue but some reports say that the consistency is not always, well, consistent and I was looking at using it mostly for cakes and muffins where the batter needs to be able to have some air incorporated into it. I just wondered if anyone here has had experience with it?
  8. Does anyone know of a good mixer or blender system that can handle our superfine flours? I have been looking at something like the Ninja because it mixes with a lid on it which would be nice to keep the flour powder from going everywhere but it gets mixed reviews. Does anyone have something that they use that they have had good success with?
  9. Gluten Free Menus

    I've eaten at Biaggi's and yes they do have prices and there food and service were fabulous!
  10. gluten-free oatmeal with apples and walnuts and a small glass of 1 percent milk. I just closed my eyes and pretended it was cold pizza! Didn't work, but then again, I didn't suffer the pangs of guilt either...."No Pang, no dang' when I look at the numbers on the scale this way.
  11. Is there a way for me to 'like' this? I am no fan of traditional cereal/toast type breakfasts. I eat them because I need to eat something, and nutrition is required but my D'ruthers would be cold pizza or tacos. However,your breakfast today sounds wonderful!
  12. Nausea Every Evening...

    I know this is probably way out there but if you are having problems digesting foods such as chicken, beef heavy proteins and raw veggies and fruits like carrots and apples, these are harder for your body to digest and process. Have you tried eating things like gluten-free oatmeal, cream of rice cereal, eggs, soups, things like that? I know they don't necessarily provide a lot of fiber, but until you heal they might still provide you with nutrition and not be so difficult for your gut to deal with.....
  13. My daughter and I discovered these at a local grocery store recently. The are like a gluten free 'lunchable' and they are amazing! There are about six different gluten free varieties and a couple of toxic ones to boot and I've tried every gluten-free one that they have. They are incredible. Low in calories..fairly nutritious and flavorful and way cooler that the original lunchables. Our favorite is the turkey pepperoni and crackers version. Each box has an entre like turkey pepperoni, asiago cheese spread, multi-grain crackers, mixed dried fruit and a Roca candy for dessert. You can google for the different varieties and even order them online. A little more expensive that lunchables, but totally worth it. Also, each box includes interesting facts and a soduko puzzle inside. Take that, Oscar Meyer!
  14. Nausea Every Evening...

    Not sure if this has been covered yet, but I am a type one diabetic and one of the most common 'tells' for me to know that my blood sugar is running low without checking by blood glucose level with my glucometer is that I feel nauseated and often have a headache to go along with it. Are you or have you been checked for diabetes? If you think about what you might be eating on the gluten-free diet, it probably includes less carbs and more proteins, fruits and veggies...just a thought.
  15. Gluten Free Menus

    I agree with you completely! Wouldn't it be nice (fantasy attack here) if there were no prices because, 'hey, you have this disease that totally sucks, so we are giving you your meal FREE just because you are a really nice person and deserve a break where your digestive system is concerned?' Yeah...don't think that's going to happen but I can, deep panned, ooey, gooey crust, with tons of cheese (for those who are also lactose intolerant) that's my dream! And we all know it costs nothing to dream so they won't have to list THAT on the menu either! Bwwwaaaahhaaaaaa! And if they are NOT going to list the prices on the menu, then the wait staff should have to quote them like they do the specials of the day! Can I get an AMEN?
