so I visited my local Barnes and Noble the other day and picked up copies of Living Without, Gluten Free Living, Delight and Simply Gluten Free Magazine.  I've been reading them and wanted to get other's opinions about which one or two are the most respected, provide the most current research and have good recipes.  

 

in some other threads I've seen people had a problem with billing and their subscriptions to Gluten Free Living, but that info was in older threads.  is this still a current problem for anyone?

 

any websites besides celiac.com that are outstanding?

 

suggestions, please  :)

Nope :rolleyes:  We're the best. :D

 

I have never subscribed to magazines on the Gluten Free Lifestyle, but do from time to time pick up a copy at  B&N, for some recipe ideas.  Joining some of the national orgainizations like the Celiac Disease Foundation will offer you a quarterly newsletter with some good information, as well as their web page.

I  enjoy  all four  magazines  but  my  favorite  would  have to be Living Without....Delight  used to have  subscription problems  but  has been good  since  Vanessa took it over...Simply Gluten Free  is  new  , I  think just  the  second  issue.....

The only one I have ever picked up has been Living Without. I picked up the holiday issue for some ideas and liked a few of the recipes. Then I picked up the December issue after being on the fence for quite some time about starting baking again and seeing cookies that looked just like my Grammy's on the cover. I was hooked after that. I enjoy the recipes and the articles. If I see one of the others and something on the cover interests me I may pick it up, but I don't have a lot to spend on magazines and I would much rather just spend it all on Living Without. I can't foresee ever being disappointed.

The two I have read are Living Without and Gluten-Free Living.  My personal preference is for gluten-free Living because of its focus on gluten (my particular issue).  If you have other food sensitivities such as dairy,  I could see that LW might be a better choice.

I like Living Without Magazine because it has both recipes and relevant health articles. (even my Gi doc loves to see copies of them)

 

I think Glutenfreegoddess has some of the best recipes. 

 

For humor and cutting edge commentary, I enjoy the Gluten Dude. 

 

The best book I have read for celiac disease info is:

 

Real Life with Celiac Disease by Melinda Dennis and Daniel Leffler 

 

Daniel Leffler, MD, MS, Director of Clinical Research is a founding member of the Celiac Center at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston, Massachusetts, and Melinda Dennis, MS, RD, LDN, the Nutrition Coordinator is also a founding member

I was visiting family this weekend, and my Dad had made cookies and asked if I wanted any.  I asked if they had flour, and he thought he was being funny by saying he used gluten-free flour...except they have no gluten-free flour  :(  the probability of cross contamination, even if he did use gluten-free flour, is very high in my parent's house.  Since I don't live with them, I cannot expect that they rearrange their house every time I come to visit because that's not fair to them.  Since I'm still really new to gluten-free living, I find it easiest to eat whole foods, or prepackaged gluten free foods that I purchase and open myself when I visit them.

 

I tried not to get too upset, and instead the newest edition of Simply Gluten-Free came to the rescue.  There's an article in it about Bob's Red Mill's facilities, and the importance of keeping everything separate to prevent cross contamination including their buffer room.  I asked my Dad to read the article, which he did, and then he asked if he could pay me for the magazine, so that he can keep it and read the other articles in it.  I told him he could keep it, but I'd need it back the next time I see them  :)  I can't expect them to be mind readers, so hopefully it will help.  

 

Little vent-My Mom is another story.  She tries to be helpful, except I've asked if she cannot loudly proclaim in the grocery store, "Do you see any of your gluten foods?"   I bite my tongue because I want to say, yes I see PLENTY of gluten foods, but I need gluten-free.  Do you think next time we're near the diet coke, I should loudly exclaim, "Do you see any of your aspartame beverages?"  end rant

 

I really enjoy Simply Gluten Free, Gluten Free Living and Living Without.  The only thing I don't like about Living Without is the title.  In trying to keep a positive, upbeat vibe, Living Without is a pessimistic title.  How about the title Living for Longevity or Living Life?

 

I will have to check out Gluten Dude, and Real Life With Celiac Disease  :)

My favorite is Delight Gluten Free Magazine.  All the recipes are created for the magazine, and are tested in their test kitchen.  The are also life style articles for living gluten free, conversion charts, and great travel articles.  The index lists every recipe in that issue with which of the other main allergens are in the recipe, so that you can easily know which recipes fit into your particular situation.  This makes planning so much easier if you need to avoid another allergen.  There are also interesting articles by major medical professionals in the field.

Living without just announced they are changing their name to Living Without's Gluten free and more.  On the post I saw they said it was because you don't have to go without as much these days compared to the gluten-free stone ages just a few years ago.  

 

I really haven't tried any magazines, but have thought about subbing to them and gluten-free living.  I think I have gotten sample copies of one or the other at expos and in sample boxes.  I tend to bookmark every good gluten-free and cooking blog I come across, and I keep up with a few regularly.  When I have a bored night I will go read what is new on them all.  I like the ones with original content and minimal marketing posts the best.  My favorite non-gluten-free food blog is http://www.101cookingfortwo.com/  because it is very similar to my cooking tastes and needs.  Lately my favorite gluten-free blog has been gluten dude, but not many recipes there.

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
