  1. Thank guys for you responses....geez i forgot about popcorn- thats a good idea! I also just bought Food For Life sprouted corn tortillas today...also some biscuit-like crackers that has a sweet thanks for the suggestions,,,sometimes i just get bored of food
  2. hey everyone Im posting because i need some ideas for new snacks. I have a mid-morning snack and an afternoon snack. Usually i will have a piece of fruit, rice bar (like a granola bar), or turkey and crackers. I am so0o0 bored of this. I cannot eat nuts, chocolate, or yogurt, so those snack ideas are out. What else can i have? Is there any gluten-free products that makes quick&tasty snacks on the go (since i work with children and cannot sit down to have a luxury snack) Any tips, comments, or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
  3. I never had a problem at Outback Steakhouse.....they have a nice selection: chicken, fish, shrimp, steak and ribs,,,,plus desserts...the service is really nice and accomadating
  4. Hey everyone,,,,just wanted to share my new snack I have just discovered . They are called Healthy Delite and can be found in stores like Mrs. Greens, Stew Leonards,,,but i buy them online at Healthy delite are chips that are baked from real vegetables that are dehydrated. They also have apple chips. They have mixed veggies in a bag or jar, sweet potato, red onions, carrots, celery, taro, ect. The only bad thing is they are a little expensive , Price:$1.59 a bag, and about $4 a jar. I bought like 30 bags and it cost like 50something once shipping was included, but it was at my house in 5 days. So they are really good and healthy for you too. Check out yummydelights website,,,and also to learn more about their products. They are now producing bags that say gluten-free right on the bag! They are yummy . let me know what you guys think if you are going to purchase them.
  5. Hi Nicole,,, Sorry your son going through this, especially at such a young age. I was first diagnosed with IBS, then later on gluten intolerance (biopsy was neg for celiac but blood says yes) Still on the gluten-free diet, i go through stomach problems. I get bouts of constipation, bloating & distention almost everyday, some days still black circle around my eyes....i dont have any great advice,,,but perhaps a different diet...there is one for ibs,,,,my doctor told me that there is really nothing people with ibs can do except see what foods are related to this triggers/symptoms...and you son is too young for ibs meds...i hope your son finds relief soon.
