I saw this on tv too! I can't stand watching Dan Eaton, but this recipe caught my attention - glad to hear it came out good! I'm looking for a dessert to make for Valentine's Day, so maybe I'll give this a try. Thanks for reminding me!!
Do any of the hostels have kitchens? I've stayed at some truly horrid hostels, but I've also stayed at a few that had really nice, really well equipped kitchens, and I convinced my hubby (well, then boyfriend) to cook some meals ourselves. That cuts down on my anxiety A LOT and usually winds up being cheaper!
I unfortunately don't have any more specific advice than that. We were going to go to Vienna and Prague on our honeymoon in '07, actually. And we didn't. Partially because flights got sooooo expensive and partially because I was worried about finding food I could eat. I don't know if you can do dairy, but Eastern Europe is pretty cheese-centric. And sausage-centric. Yuck! We went to England and France and I did pretty well in those countries, England especially.
Keep us posted! I do hope you get to go on your dream trip!!!
I don't want to discount anything necessarily, however I would think that the honey would be fine. Regular ol' honey could potentially come from a hive located close to a wheat field as well, and heating or processing it wouldn't do anything to destroy the gluten. So if raw honey is a potential source of CC, so would regular honey. And peanut butter when the peanuts come from a field next to a wheat field. And jam made from berries grown next to a wheat field. And sugarcane grown next to wheat. Etc.
If you really thought about all the potential sources for food to be grown next to a wheat field, you literally wouldn't eat anything you didn't grow yourself. And even then, you'd have to worry about birds and bees transplanting wheat to your garden...
Sorry to sound negative, but you have to draw the line somewhere, you know? Hope you're feeling better!
Just my .02 - many on the board here say that they get depressed when they accidentally consume gluten, or that their depression lifted when they went gluten free. Most kids who are depressed look irritable and whiny rather than having the typical symptoms we associate with depression in adults.
If this is a relatively new behavior, and there have been no other major changes in your household or her routine, I'd take a close look and make sure your daughter is not getting CC'ed in some way.
Of course, she could just be getting close to the "terrible two's"...
I finally found the Honey Kix in my middle-of-nowhere town and promptly ate two bowls. And promptly got sick - super bloated tummy, couldn't keep my eyes open, weepy, etc. So while they were tasty and it would be really nice to be able to buy a mainstream cereal, it's really just not worth it to me.
Sigh - guess I have to come up with a different way to save money on groceries
It may be worthwhile to ask your doctor about doing them yourself at home. I was only paying $40 each time I got one done, but I was also driving an hour and a half away to see the doctor (when gas was $4/gallon) - so it was adding up quickly. And it was difficult to get all of the time off of work to go weekly.
It was actually my doctor's idea to do them at home - I was very hesitant at first, because I knew I would just scream at my husband every time. But I swear to you, it does start to hurt less and now I do them myself and they barely hurt at all and I actually look forward to them because my bladder feels so good afterward!
My insurance covers a good deal of the supplies to do the instills at home. The meds are generic, so cheap, and the needles are cheap. My particular insurance does not cover the syringes or catheters, so I have to pay for those out of pocket. But it's still WAY cheaper than getting them done in the doctor's office. My doctor wrote the script as if I do them daily, so I get 30 doses of each med for each copay. I do them about every 5-6 days, though.
Sitting for extended periods of time is my biggest trigger - especially when I'm sitting in a moving car. That always triggers the worst pain for me, and I don't really know what to do about it. I'm sorry you're in pain at work - that's the worst. I don't have any sage advice, but I do feel your pain! Take your work pants off and put a warm heating pad on when you get home!
