  1. I was at Whole (Paycheck) Foods yesterday and bought a health drink that is clearly labeled "Gluten Free." Upon further examination this green, anti-oxidant drink contains both wheat grass and barley grass. Has anyone tried this stuff? Their website says all their drinks are Gluten Free. What is the concencus on consuming wheat grass? Cleveland Bob
  2. Not all people react the same......I generally show symptoms the following day and then they last for 7-10 days. It depends on the severity of Celiac and what you've eaten. Keeping a food diary is a good idea. I did it for about 2-years and it helped isolate things that didn't sit well with my system. Specifically, I was able to figure out that Soy was keeping me from progressing and I have felt a lot better since I eliminated it. Stay the course. Things might not turn-around over-night but, they will get better. Best of luck! Cleveland Bob
  3. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  4. I've found that Pork is harder to digest in general so I pretty much have eliminated it from my diet. I figure that my system has enough problems without making it work harder in digestion. Anyone else??? But, I do admit, I love the smell of bacon cooking in the morning and crave a good BLT (Or, as Billy Crystal said in the "Princess Bride," Nothing beats a good MLT - Mutton, Lettuce & Tomato Sandwich where the Mutton is nice and lean......Sorry, I digress sometimes).

  5. I've always seen a delay in symptoms as I think the food gets pushed thru your body everytime you eat something. I might even see a good-day where I feel fine followed-up by the bloating / pains / brain-fog / big-D. I also agree that the inflamation lingers even though you are eating gluten-free. It just takes a while for your body to process the offending foods thru your systems and restore itself. Best of Luck! Cleveland Bob
  6. Hebrew National Hot Dogs are Kosher & gluten-free! Cleveland Bob
  7. Seeing as you're from Ohio and your body is bleeding green I would say you must be an Ohio University Bobcat! Joking aside I hope you are okay and able to figure out what the heck is going on! I wish I could be of more help but, aside from the liver check I have no clue? Best of luck..... Cleveland Bob OU '90
  8. I am curious to know if anyone has done the 23andMe genetic testing kit? They sell a kit for $399 which is based on your saliva and can tell you about various diseases and conditions in your genetic makeup. With so many associated conditions / problems that Celiac people have I just wondered if anyone did this and/or learned anything worthwhile? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone? Cleveland Bob
  9. I always go to PF Changs @ Planet Hollywood on the strip. They have a gluten-free menu and it's nice not to have to explain everything to a clueless waiter / waitress. Good Luck! Cleveland Bob
  10. This is copied from another Cruise topic I replied-on recently............ I went on an Alaskan Cruise aboard Norweigan......They sent me a list of gluten-free foods prior to departure and let me pick what items I wanted to have aboard (English Muffins / Pasta / Crackers, etc.). Then, I had a meeting the first night with the Maitre'd who reviewed the menu with me and discussed what items the Chefs could present as gluten-free. They even made me a gluten-free, flourless Chocolate dessert (Which was amazingly rich!). Each night at dinner I was able to review the menu for the following night and pre-order my meal (Same went for B-fast). Needless to say it was most reassuring that these people took me seriously and were watching-out for my best interests. I made a point of writing a thank-you note and tipping the Maitre'd for his consideration and, I definitely recommend Norweigan to anyone thinking about a cruise. Cleveland Bob
  11. I've been enjoying Good Earth's Decaf Green Tea for years with no problems........ Cleveland Bob
  12. I make a gluten-free version of Rice Krispy Treats.......Use any gluten-free rice cereal, butter and marshmallows. Melt butter & marshmallows together in a pan and mix-in the cereal. Works well with Rice Chex, too! Cleveland Bob
