I ate there last sunday and I had a salad (no dressing), baked potato and the oven baked flounder (its a lunch special). I didn't get sick and I don't remember feeling ill after, but there might have been gluten in the spices on the fish (it tasted like seasoning salt)
Here are a few that me and my husband love...

I am wondering if anyone has used them and what kind they used. I've seen Hydroxie(sp) cut on TV and it sounds good, but whats the catch? I need a little help, I am asking this because I am about 20lbs overweight and diet and working out isn't helping so much. Thanks
1.5 lbs ground beef
1 package old El Paso taco seasoning mix
1 onion chopped
1 tsp garlic
1 block sharp chedder cheese cut into small cubes
Preheat oven to 425
Beat eggs, then mix in all remaining ingredients (except cheese) Mold a tablespoon of meat mixture around a cube of cheese to form a small meat ball. Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake until meat is cooked and cheese is melted (about 10-15min).
If you can't eat cheese or eggs, replace it with your favorite egg replacer and use soy cheese.
So, my husband loves spinach quiche and cheese cake, I however can't eat these foods because of the crusts. I have recipes for these foods but no gluten-free pie crusts recipes. I have thought of using the pizza crust recipe (rice, cheese and egg) and changing it by using rice, sugar and eggs (use that in the cheese cake). However for the quiche I don't know, use swiss cheese instead of chedder? Does anyone know if this will work? Any ideas out there? Thanks
I'm finding it hard to eat with this adrenal fatigue syndrome what do you all eat? I've read a couple differnet things that say I shouldn't eat yogurt and cheese and then others say I dhouldn't. Anything else I should know about? Thanks
I was wondering if anyone else had adrenal fatigue syndrom before they found out that they had Celiac disease? What I've been reading is that one of the stressors that can lead to adrenal fatigue is gluten intolerance. I had adrenal fatigue syndrom for about 2 years, started feeling better then found out that I had celiac disease. Is it possible to have not known that I had celiac disease and got the adrenal thing from that? Because I also read that a lot people don't know that they have celiac disease until something major happens in their life (which is what happened with me)
So I'm kinda confussed, if anyone knows about this I would love some tips:-)
I'm all teary eyed right now...lol...I just read your post, looked up a few things on line and called my mom. I had forgotten that I had this adrenal problem back in high school. It had gotten better but I guess its back again, so I its time for a change. I had gone to a doctor who had given me a vitamin supplement but I can't use it now because of Celiac (it contains, wheat germ and oats).
So I am wondering what you are using? I take a vitamin B complex and a multi vitamin daily, however I don't think its enough. I am a healthy eater, except for the past two months. I have been going crazy over sugar, salty and fatty foods; I've gained 10lbs and because of that I have been excersing more but then I am so tired. Its a horrible cycle I have gotten into.
Also I am wondering did you have this before or after you found out you had Celiac? I found out last year I had a celiac disease but I had already had adrenal fatigue syndrom before. From what I've read adrenal fatigue syndrom can lead to a gluten intolerance. What do you know about this?
Thanks so much for reading this and for you time:-)
OMG...I just looked up the adrenal gland thing and it fits me exactly. I did go to the doctor back in June and they ruled out diabetes, thyroid and iron deficiency. So, are you taking vitamins or anything to help your adrenals?
Ok, I'm feeling kind of down right now. I don't know what is wrong with me. I have not eaten anything with gluten in it for the last 5 months, but I am still feeling tired, hungry and dizzy more often then I should be. I only work about 18 hours a week, I work out 5 days a week, I sleep 7 hour every night and yet I can't stay awake all day, all I can think about is eating and at least once a day I get light headed and almost pass out. The doctors said its not a iron problem, I don't have a thyroid problem, they even said I didn't have a wheat intolerance but every time I eat wheat I am sicker than a dog (I fit the bill for Celiac or at least a wheat intolerance).
Anyway, i am wondering if anyone else has this problem? Do I have depression? If anyone has anything, please help me out. I am only 21 and I don't want the rest of my life to be like this.
