  1. fyi - they actually DO make breadmakers specifically for making gluten-free bread - my husband found them online and has been threatening to get me one. i am pretty curious (and lazy - used to love to dump ingredients into the bin and push a couple of buttons, boom, done, lolz) and somebody on another site posted this cranberry loaf that would be cool to do in a breadmaker, but i don't want to fool with it mixing it by hand (i might do it anyway, but i don't wanna......) i might need another cabinet for all my kitchen 'toys' hahaha
  2. noodle noodles? like egg noodles???? dooooo tellllll - stroganoff has not been the same lolz i just realized how long it's been since i made stroganoff and that's probably why i haven't - no noodles. i did find some a few years ago (on vacation, in some wierd little supermarket store in fort myers beach) but, ya know, can't always run to florida hahaha
  3. is this a new doctor, sella? i remember you were going to switch. sounds like you better keep looking...... i feel your pain: i've been gluten-free (dx'd FINALLY with celiac after 25 years of doctors telling me i had ibs/ibd/colitis but doing no tests at all to rule out anything else!!) for 6 years, honestly finally starting to feel like i'm healing and my general practitioner is trying to give me DRUGS - no, thanks, i asked for something to try that wasn't that drastic..... it's like i asked for a bb and he tried to give me a grenade..... i pretty much called him stupid. he doesn't like me anymore boo hoo....
  4. hi, chrystal, welcome to the best club you never wanted to join lolz - i have been on the gluten-free diet for 6 plus years now - it gets easier, trust me! last friday, husband took me out to dinner at bonefish in turkey creek. they do a good job keeping things safe. i always ask for a menu, then order the exact same thing every time hahaha the red robin there is very handy if i'm going somewhere like a picnic or cookout or whatever i don't feel like cooking/packing for, i just order a burger to go they only messed it up once (server didn't mark allergy on the order) and when i took it back to get the gluten-free order, they were more than happy to replace it. i tend to lean toward tinkyada pasta, although recently tried the barilla elbow macaroni and they were awesome (can't remember where i got them!! i am on a scavenger hunt wherever i go - you'd be surprised where you can find different things lololz) ooh - and my husband runs to michigan twice per week so when i heard the 'good' gluten-free flour tortillas (mission, baby!!) had made it to stores in michigan, he stopped and got me some. he tried them last night and he was like 'these taste like you can't taste the difference' yayyy!! you just never know when those little cool surprises will pop up ps - i am in cornstalk heights in harriman - we have quite a few gluten-free people around here - surprisingly i have either met them from church or the lions club, so if you have time or opportunity to volunteer or attend somewhere, you might find somebody who is gluten-free (except leroy. leroy is a gravy scraper. bad leroy. ) i think it must be the fellowship part of things that make people chat more....?
  5. aspartame gives me a horrible reaction - makes me hyper (actually, all artificial sweeteners do) - i am also careful not to overdo it with the raw veggies/fruits and there are not many juices that aren't too acidic for me. try keeping a food journal - you may think you remember everything you have eaten all day, but i was surprised ("o, yeah, i forgot i had a bite of whatever. and i had that yesterday, too. maybe i should try not eating that tomorrow and see if that's it....") it made it easier to figure out even if it wasn't gluten. hope you feel better.
  6. winning!!!! love it when i find a 'new' treat that i don't have to fingerprint
  7. i also take xanax for my anxiety. very small doses and when needed. the script was easier to get than my celiac dx lolz
  8. ((((((HUGS!!!)))))))) from people who understand!! stress is also a huge cause of digestive distress - i have been reading about the brain/gut connection lately and it's interestingly terrifying lolz - but i also agree with frieze - try skipping the oats. it's frustrating! ugh - just this past weekend my husband had a bbq picnic out of state and we were going to bobtail down in the big truck. my plan was to stop at the red robin burger place and get a few gluten-free meals to go for the weekend. the rr didn't open until 11am so we figured we'd just eat there friday night, get the to go stuff, take it home and leave out early saturday morning. went, ate, got home - the to go orders are completely glutenous.... ugh..... so, we had to go back and they fixed it then i had to explain to 100 rednecks why i couldn't eat any of the 92 lbs of barbeque (omgosh it smelled awesome) on the upside, they gave me my own private bathroom and i had fun on the shooting range <shooting is gluten free lolz, also a good way to de-stress here's some more ((((((HUGS)))))) it'll get better.
  9. not at all lots of good changes! my hair stopped falling out all the time, i had dh that cleared up (my shins used to get so terrible they would bleed from me itching them in my sleep) and honestly: i was skin and bones. people thought i had anorexia or cancer. i am 5'8" and i weighed 97 lbs. so, yeah, there was a big difference when i put on 20 lbs! still would like to add 10 or so..... also, i used to pick up every virus/cold/pneumonia <at least once a year, ugh) and i'm happy to report i've not been sick AT ALL not a sniffle. when everybody (and i have all these germy grandkids, neices, nephews, etc around all the time) has the flu, i don't get it. nothing. so, my immune system must be running the way it's supposed to (it's about time lolz)
  10. lolz - *i* noticed ! i was so underweight, i didn't realize my smiley cheeks had disappeared until they returned. you know, how you can kind of see your cheeks when you smile they crunch up? i was happy to see them also, husband likes my curvierness back i'm still not to my target weight, but i'm working on it.
  11. hey, man. don't pick on wine............
  12. maybe your gut is absorbing the caffeine more, now that you're gluten-free and healing.
  13. she is fun to watch !! she taught me a few tricks. the prep takes longer than the actual rolling. speaking of rolling - tell him you're never too old i'm a grandma lolz
  14. i am wary of eating sushi out b/c most soy sauce is made of wheat. i roll my own at home (helps that daughter was a sushi chef ) and i use bragg's amino sub for soy sauce.
  15. i am still avoiding iodine. and if i eat fish or shellfish, my scalp will break out (i'm assuming because of the ioding) the same places every time. takes about a week to clear. keep a food journal. it's tedious, but the best way to figure out what's causing your discomfort. good luck!
