      Thanks -- boiled potatoes is a good idea. Homemade chicken soup could work, too. I like eating spicy sometimes when I'm sick (particularly if I have a cold) but not when my stomach is feeling off.

      Frozen mangoes from Trade Joe's (the best brand)
      About 1 inch of fresh ginger (good for stomach aches) chopped
      1 banana
      Warm water

      Blend extra long to make sure the ginger gets chopped up well.

      Comfort Food?
      What do you all eat when you aren't feeling good? For me, it used to be toast or chicken noodle soup. Now I don't know what to eat. I don't want to eat anything that's a gluten-free replacement of a gluten food, because that hurts my stomach too.

      I just want something a little warm and bland that will make my stomach settle down.

      Yeah, I think the xanthan gum makes me ill, too. Which makes me wonder why I own a $10 bag of it.

      Gluten Free Products Make Me Sick?
      Does anyone else experience this -- eating too much gluten-free processed products making them sick? I felt awful after Thanksgiving dinner yesterday, and I cooked the entire thing myself. I was very careful about gluten. Had gluten-free stuffing and gluten-free pie crusts, a gluten-free turkey and a host of other things. About a half hour after dinner I was feeling terrible. No one else was sick.

      I think I overdid it on the gluten-free products, which I rarely eat.

      That's funny, because I just flew Alitalia from Rome to Amsterdam, and it was horrible! LOL. But my suitcase was packed full of Scharr products, so I shouldn't complain.

      First Class Gluten Free Meal On Delta
      Hi everyone,

      I wanted to post my experience ordering a gluten free meal while flying first class on Delta this past week. I had read in a couple of places that the first class gluten-free meal is the same as the economy class gluten-free meal, and wanted to correct that. It is not the same meal. It's actually pretty good, in fact, and I'm really happy I ordered it.

      First flight was from Detroit to L.A. They said they didn't get my order in time, so I think I just ate the salad. No big deal. I'd also brought some Kind bars from home, and I made it to L.A. just fine.

      Second flight was from L.A. to Tokyo. The pursuer came over to tell me they had a special meal for me. First course was a bowl of fruit, a rice cake, and a plate of lentil salad, two shrimp, and some fire-roasted corn. It was good. Next came a huge salad with a balsamic vinagrette, cucumbers, tomato, and pine nuts. Also very good. The main course was a plain chicken breast, rice and some mushy frozen veggies. Not as good as the other two courses, but totally edible and I could've eaten the whole thing if I was really hungry.

      Breakfast was an omlette with spinach, an Udi's bagel and more fruit.

      The trip home was similar. A better meal on the intercontinental than on the domestic, but still totally serviceable. First course was a little salad, fruit, and some kind of tomato soup. Everyone else got a second course with a big salad, and the airline steward realized it was gluten free, so he asked if I wanted one. I did, and it was good. Entree was another chicken breast, this time with Italian spices, some rice, and I think asparagus.

      Breakfast was another spinach omlette (which was edible, but not very tasty), an Udi's muffin, and a ton of fruit.

      Anyway, it's airline food, so I wasn't expecting much. So I was very pleasantly surprised. And happy that work splurged on the first class ticket for such a long trip, because it meant I got to eat pretty well!

      Thanks for the reply. I had been holding out hope that I wasn't gluten intolerant, but my reaction lately has me thinking I need to start coming to terms with it.

      Rebound Effect?
      Hi all,

      So I am new here -- just recently started eating gluten-free after years of undiagnosed stomach issues. I've been tested for celiac (while eating wheat) and it came up negative, but I recently got some family history news that leads me to believe gluten might be the issue causing my problems.

      So I cut out gluten a few weeks ago, and I've noticed now that even when I have the slightest amount of gluten, I have terrible stomach issues. It is quite dramatic and happens quickly -- and is much worse than the stomach issues I had a month ago.

      Any thoughts on why gluten is so much worse now when I get even a little bit, as compared to a month ago when I was eating bread and pasta on a regular basis and only having stomach issues sporadically?
