InterestsI love violin, reading, swimming/surfing, food, and living my life. I have been playing violin for 6 years and love it! I also love reading, and my favorite book would probably be The Giver, by Louis Lowry. I have been surfing since last summer... and I'm not to good at it yet. I love food because there is so many wonderful foods.
I know this a fairly late thank you to everyone, but thank you! Our family talked to our pastor, and now they are doing an entirely gluten free communion for everyone! I am very excited about this! Thanks again
God bless, Kylie
Hey, I can't have casein either, so I understand where you are coming from, but I've found that they don't actually have casin in them. It specificially says milk and eggs may be present, but I feel safe eating them as they do not actually have milk in the ingrediants. Good luck! (:
You know all those ads about Rice Chex being gluten free? Not all of them are! A few days ago my dad was running to pick up some Rice Chex for my brother, but he didn't bother looking at the ingrediants because he assumed they were fine. They weren't, thank goodness my mom did the initial scan of the ingrediants. So just to make a point, STILL READ THE INGREDIANTS OR MAKE SURE IT SAYS GLUTEN FREE.
Just thought you might like to know this tidbit of information.
Today while I was at Church, I realized it was communion and I didn't know what to do. At my Church, we sit in chairs and when it comes time to have communion, we get up and walk to the communion people. Instead of wafers, though, we tear small pieces of bread off a loaf and then dip it in some wine.
My mom, who is also gluten-intolerent (though not as bad as me) decided to go ahead and have communion, but I decided against it because in my mind, every little bit of gluten can make it worse.
I am really confused on what to do so if anybody has any suggustions I would greatly appreciate it.
Well, I haven't been eating a lot of gluten lately, even before I knew I couldn't have gluten, because of my younger bro who has celiac diesease. I also know from the enterolab test that I'm allergic to milk. I do eat fish and seafood, so that is a good source of protein for me. At b-fast, I nornmally have an egg and gluten-free waffles or gluten-free cereal. At lunch, I have a couple of fruits and veggies, water, a gluten-free candy, and some nuts and veggie chips. At dinner, I usually eat gluten-free because my mom prepares supper for the whole family, including my celiac brother.
It's just intolerence, and I have no symtoms, however, my brother has celiac so my mom said we should all get tested. I got diagnosed from enterolab. I know that it will help me in the long run, but it's so hard right now.
