  1. Hey, My names Briana and I'm seventeen. I'm actually living in the overpopulated Southern California. I'm planning on going to college in Colorado and I'm also thinking about Idaho. In addition to celiac disease I have a dairy allergy, am a vegetarian, and have hypoglycemia. If you ever have any questions or just want to talk feel free. My email is: Brii_1992@yahoo.com
  2. So I hope I'm replying to this right. I'm seventeen and found out I was diagnosed with celiac disease in December of 2007. I was previously a vegetarian for about three months before I was diagnosed. I, unlike you, don't have a problem with needles, and at the same time I found out I had a gluten intolerance found out I have a dairy ALLERGY. So I kinda went from being just a vegetarian to a vegan without gluten. Don't get discouraged, I know it's hard to find things to eat, especially if your like me and have no cooking skills whatsoever, but you can work around that. I'm not sure how much of a vegetable fan you are, but I pretty much only eat them. I go through different phases of what I eat. Some of my favorites are: -Bean tacos: Which I make the shell with a corn tortilla, with pinto beans, and smetimes I throw in salsa and all the stuff you like on a taco. I make this corn salsa with just defrosted frozen corn, diced up purple onions, lemon juice and parsley I think just all mixed up and that's really good on the tacos. -BBQ: This is probably my favorite, and now my whole family asks me to make it for them, I pretty much grill pineapples, brown onions, potatoes, and mushrooms with olive oil and Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce, in one of those vegetable griller pan things with the wholes in it, sorry I don't know what the name is. -Salads are always a good thing, especially if you switch it up with like different letuces and dressings, maybe try it with fruit really changes them so your not having the same boring salad. DON'T FORGET: -Avoid crutons. -Check the lables and look them up. All Kraft products will list barley if theres any in them. -Check the brand of the pinto beans, you never know what's safe or what's not. If you have any questions or want to talk about anything feel free. My email is: brii_1992@yahoo.com I hope I helped some. Don't get discouraged, try just googling things. Also, bread wise, Pamalas gluten free bread mix cooked in a bread maker is THEE BEST and super easy to make!
  3. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  4. I'm going to Redding California for a week, I'm gluten free as well as vegan and was wondering what I could eat or where I could go to eat, any ideas?
  5. So I don't mean to be like a downer and I mean this as just not a bad way. But like the oxalate diet I was looking into it and soy is a high oxalate and I eat a lot of soy, not because I think it's healthier but because I'm a vegan. Peanuts also they were saying is a high oxalate food, and I eat them for protein. I don't mean to sound complicating or anything, I really appreciate the feed back. I just... don't know what I'll eat for the time I am watching my oxalate intake. You know? I don't know why, but like when I stopped eating gluten, I didnt mind, it was easy same with dairy and not eating meat. Just... I'm not sure. The constant urination, is definately annoying. If anything I'd like to fix that.

  7. Is there anywhere in Laughlin Nevada to eat at? Like before I was diagnosed we would eat at buffets and stuff anyone know of anything? There's an in and out so I can eat some fries. Im a vegan also. Any ideas?
  8. I'm allergic to the dairy, so I couldn't have the goat milk or the cheese. I don't think I can go back to eating just eggs or meat again, I sorta just like grossed myself out by it. Even some of the substitutes that taste almost real gross me out cause it reminds me of eating flesh. You know? I've never had I'm sorry but I forgot what the milk was called that you had mentioned, so maybe I will try and find that. I'm not looking at soy for protein, I just eat it alot with most of my meals. Soy butter, tofu, milk for cereals, so I just need to find something to replace that. I am trying to cut back on my soy intake as much as I can. For instance I don't just drink chocolate soy milk anymore I just stick with water.
  9. Are Smart and Finals Chef's Review Hash Brown Patties Gluten Free?
  10. I don't know here, but it takes a while to get use to the diet, as it is complicating. I've been on it for a year and found out yesterday that the soy milk I drink has gluten in it. It's possible that you are getting cross contaminated or are eating gluten and you don't even know it. Another possible reason may be another allergy. Me, I'm allergic to dairy and get the bloating. Have you got tested for any allergies? I'm really sorry. I hate the bloating. And hope you figure this all out.
  11. So you think eating meat might be my only like possible solution?
  12. I'm sixteen. Female. I've been on the gluten free diet for a year and around then I also found out I had a dairy allergy. [[Not lactose intolerant, dairy allergy.]] My mom has a double copy of the celiac gene but I am unnoffically diagnosed but do carry a copy it. I don't mind being gluten free, I feel healthier without all those bready foods. Before I went on the gluten free diet, I had TERRIBLE mood swings of depression and whatnot [[More than the average teenager.]] And I'd feel sick after I ate. Both of those went somewhat away after I got the hang of the diet. I stopped eating all meat about a couple months before my change in diet with the gluten and dairy and still don't eat the meat. For about three or four years now I havent dranken any soda or anything carbonated because it seemed to bother my stomach REALLY bad, and plus it isn't really good for you. Then citric acid started to upset me, so I started eliminating foods such as tomatoes, oranges, lemon, and fruit juices. I'm down to just soy milk and water. All other flavored beverages seem to bother me. I first started taking Tagament for the acidic foods but when that didn't help I started taking Prilosec and same thing didn't do anything, so now I'm on Pepcid, which seems to make a little bit of a difference. I can occasionally have an orange and tomatoes don't bother me as much anymore, but ketchup and fruit juices still seem to. I got blood work done, did the childhood allergy panal, which is where I found out about the dairy allergy, then I just got the results back for when I got tested for the common allergies and they all came back negative. About a month or two ago I did the four hour glucose test and found out I am hypoglycemic and my blood sugar level was FLAT. I tested my thyroid, and it was "normal" but was on the lowest end. I don't eat candy just to eat candy, I tend to avoid it cause it to makes my stomach burn or upset. Constipation was happening as an everyday thing but then went away after the stopping of tomatoes, but has recently seemed to be happeining again. Now here I am, I still get sick most of the time after I eat, like something under my right rib is knotting up and it burns really bad. Under my left breast I get this like stabbing pain almost like a knife were going through me and all I want to do is lay down. The mood swings are still a problem, but not as bad as they were before the gluten free diet. I go from happy to sad in an hour and most of the time have no idea why. I have a frequent need to go pee about every hour or so, which causes lack of sleep due to having to get up a couple times a night. I do actually urinate about ninety percent of the time but sometimes its only about a tablespoon or so. I don't drink VERY often but when I seem to have just a cup of water it seems to almost go right through me like ten minutes later, I go. Bloating is a problem, most of the time after I eat my stomach blows up. I don't get any headaches, I've had maybe one in my life. I have trouble caring when I'm in class or with homework because I'm either in a bad mood where I don't care about anything or can't stop dwelling on something else. Due to my extreme blood glucose drop I eat a little bit throughout the day. I eat alot of spinach and mushrooms sauted in butter with garlic. I'm a fruits and veggie fanatic, they're a big portion of what I eat. I take a mult vitamin, magnessium, pepcid, b-12, four lysine each day. I was taking Caltrate calcium supplements, until the doctor told me about two months ago I have crystals in my urine, so I was on bicitra hoping to make a difference and it made none. I was looking into the Candida diet, I haven't started it yet, but I'm not really sure what I would eat if I did. I'm pretty much willing to do anything. If you have any suggestions or ideas, I could really use the help. Thank you so much.
  13. It was in the very beginning so they weren't talking about anything else. I just want to know if it has a meaning at all.
  14. In the movie "The Invisible" Nicolas cage is eating breakfast and his mom is reading the newspaper and looks down at his shirt and says "What is that, irony?" Does anyone know why she says that? Why would it be irony?
  15. Does anyone know why the mom says what is that irony for?
