      I spotted some gluten free nut bars in the supermarket today from the nice and natural company....has anyone tried these before?"


      Yes Nice N Natural bars are a favorite here, I buy about six packs a script:add_smilie("","smid_9")

      We're also getting Live Well products her now, Jam tarts, bakewell tarts and bramley apple tarts... all very nice and another Company called Forever free which are K.

      No gluten-free beer here yet but I did try some in Uk earlier this year, one was pleasing and the second tasted like I remember Barley Wine tasting. Tried another In Canada last year.
      I'll stick with cider but it's another loooooong wait for some true script:add_smilie("","smid_16")

      Yes, it's also called Tapioca Flour. Now showing my age, it was used as a remedy for "the trots"
      Some thickening agent eh?
      I've always found it a very versatile flour , even BC (before celiac)

    3. tonyevans added a post in a topic Gluten Free In-flight Meals?   

      I've had really good experiences with Qantas and Air New Zealand.
      I ordered at the time of booking the flights and the meals were as requested. They tend to serve "specials' first so I was finished before my wife was even served her regular.
      Air Canada and Singapore also responded well

    4. tonyevans added a post in a topic Number Of People On The Board   

      I've been involved in a variety of lists from about 1992 and been moderator of a few. It has always been my experience that there are a very high perentage of Lurkers on any list.
      Most are just content to read the posts that interest or affect them, many get their answers that way without needing to ask a question.
      As long as people can get sound advice that way the list serves.
      Just my 2c

      Just back home from Canada and had a GREAT time. Thanks to all who gave restaurant advice, we tried many.
      You can add Outback Steakhouse, they were very good and produced a gluten-free menu. The server confirmed each of my choices was OK before confirming our order.

      But Geez I would've loved to have taken on their Bloomin' Onion.

      Thanks again to all for your advices

      With vinegar, just be careful with the brown Malt vinegar. The malt is derived from Barley.
      As an alternative try Cider vinegar or White vinegar

      I'm not sure if these are avalable outide NZ but, we have a small range of packet meals for campers and the like. They are not freeze dried or anything like that but the range includes Chili Con Carne, Morrocan lamb and Butter Chicken. They are just heat n eat and quite tasty.

      Bin Inn
      I'm not sure if you have a Bin Inn chain of stores in Aus but there are quite a few around NZ. The sell a really good range of gluten-free ingredients. You package to suit yourself.
      They also produce a small gluten-free recipe book and their website has some basic Celiac info and some more recipes. Check it out at

    10. tonyevans added a post in a topic Airline Food   

      I do all of my airline booking online, directly from the airline I want to use. The vast majority give the option of specific meals, on the booking form. All the airlines I've used have a gluten-free option. It's part of the reason I choose to book this way. At least then I know it has been ordered and I can use a substitute airline if I can't find a gluten-free meal.

    11. tonyevans added a post in a topic Dh And Uv Exposure   

      I believe it does.
      I was DH biopsy positive before I was also diagnosed as Celiac Biopsy positive. So for a couple of years before I didn't know I had DH and was not on any medication. I was in the "self help" stage of a very itchy skin condition.
      I routinely travelled by ship from New Zealand to Japan and Sth Korea. A voyage lasting 14-16 days.
      The voyages were made starting late in the NZ fall, so temps were moderate and my DH was not a problem.
      As we came closer to the equator my DH got progressively worse and as we progressed further North, away from the equator the symptoms reduced.

      We reached Japan in their early Spring so temps in both Japan and NZ were around 20 deg C but at the equator they could be close to 40 deg C at 1 pm

      Undertaking the voyage when I was on medication, I still had minor reactions in the hotter climates

    12. tonyevans added a post in a topic Geographic Location   

      Well, like Maggie, I'm a whole lot further South, in New Zealand

      It doesn't worry me that I can't get the products that you talk about but it does give me ideas for the kinds of things I can adapt for myself and for things I can substitute for products that used to be part of my diet.

      This is a little off this topic but I do wonder what kind of diets folks ate before they were diagnosed (particularly those diagnosed later in life). I mean wether you consider you ate a high fibre diet or if you were strong on fruits or strong on vegetables, sweet things or what?

      Anyway keep posting and I'll keep reading.

      We'll be in San Francisco, Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver during late July and August, so I may be able to try some of the products you write about

    13. tonyevans added a post in a topic How Do You Reward Yourself?   

      To me, a reward implies an acheivement and in this context it also implies that maintaining a gluten free diet requires a rewardable effort.

      I choose to consider a gluten free diet as normal for me and in maintaining that diet there is no acheivement and hence no reward required. For me it makes sense and makes it easier if I just consider a gluten free diet as not extraordinary, just the norm.

      Perhaps my wife needs the reward for eating a gluten inclusive diet?
      just my$0.02

    14. tonyevans added a post in a topic Cheating...interested How Many Of You Do   

      I think that newbies to the diet, that find this forum, have many questions and one of those, probably the one they want to know most but can't get a good answer from a Health Professional is "What happens if I take the occassional meal containing Gluten?"

      The explanations to your reasons why you don't cheat and eat the occasional gluten are very valid in the context of that question to diet newbies.

      Personally I don't cheat and I do find myself in situations where a choice of diet is not available, so I either abstain or ask the cook to provide me with only the items I consider 'safe'.

      After the intestinal gymnastics I underwent when going back to a Gluten inclusive diet for one month, prior to gastroscopy, I determined to stay loyal.
