Jewitch added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsSubstitute For Morning Star FarmsBefore I went gluten-free, I used to love Morning Star Farms foods.
I'm not much of a meat eater. I was dianosed with IBS years ago, & one of my triggers was fatty foods, so I had trouble with meat. I gave up Morning Star when I realized what was making me sick was gluten & started reading product labels.
The one Morning Star product I really miss is the Crumbles, which was so versitile. I used it several times a week. Is there a gluten-free version, or does someone know of a recipe for a substitute I can make myself?

Jewitch added a topic in Celiac Meeting RoomAnother CheeseheadI've been having trouble with gluten for a few months. I have not been diagnosed with Celiac Disease yet. I saw my doctor this morning, but (of course) forgot to tell him all the sysmptoms I've been experiencing. ( I forgot to take the list I wrote). He did the blood test but is reluctant to order the biopsy. He says many insurance companies won't pay for it. He said that I could have developed a gluten intolerance without having C>D>
I called my insurance company & the person I talked to said she "didn't think" the test would be covered because the "Cure" is so simple-" "just avoid bread & pasta". She said she'd check when I got pissy about it, but I'm not expecting a rapid reply.
As far as going gluten free, I'm lucky (I know, I know...weird saying that). The first gluten free grocery store in the country is within walking distance of my house, & the supermarket I regularly shop at has a dedicated section with a good choice.
Other than that, I'm retired, busy fixing up a crumbling old house & being "The Cool Aunt", & pretending to be a writer. I follow politics, watch a lot of news, read almost anything, spend far too much time surfing the internet, & travel when the wallet allows.
And I am a Green Bay Packers fan. No Matter What.
