Cake Anyone?

7 posts in this topic

Today I was out with my son doing a 10k walk raising funds for Cavendish Cancer Care at Chatsworth House, Bakewell in the Uk.

Well after the event we went for food and I ended up with a jacket potato as per usual and then my son pointed out that there was gluten free cake :) I was naturally overjoyed; one that it made me feel special that we were catered for and two, because Ive not had any in months...anyway, there was 4 choices (chocolate, victoria, carrot and coffee cake). mmmm I ordered the carrot cake and really looked forward to it, but with every mouthful I was nervous of cross contamination so ended up not enjoying it at all and leaving most of it :(

ahhhh well, one day.......

Yes, it's hard to trust publicly available gluten-free food, especially if you don't know the brand or can't question the chef.

Sometimes I feel like by eating at a new place I'm performing an act equivalent to skydiving.

Not sure where you are exactly in the UK, but I see the website "Find Me Gluten Free" covers London (and perhaps more?)

Take a look!.

 

I have had excellent luck with places recommended by people who post reviews on that site (and now, I review on there myself)

 

I was terrified to eat out at first, but when I had to travel extensively last month,  I took the plunge and now, I am  very comfortable with places recommended by others on that site. Not a single hit.

 

Hope you find something! Good luck.  :)

    • My endoscopy showed i had decreased folds in my duodenum. The biopsy came back and showed that my villi were fine... i have been on a gluten free diet for 6 years because i was just told i was intolerant but never had any testing before. when i eat gluten i get sick for 2 weeks. i came down with issues of other foods in march so they were trying to figure out why and wanted to know if i had celiac are not because that would explain why dairy and fructose are a problem.. both intolerant test for both were negative but the fructose test made me extremely sick but it was negative...      Im trying to figure out why i have decreased  folds in the first place. my Gi doctor is stumped on that to why the endoscopy would show damage but the under the microscope are fine. She is going to call the dr who did my scope and then is supposed to get back to  me..    would being gluten free for 6 year make it so there was damage and then my vili are now fine but still cant be seen in the endoscope?
    • Spicely Organics has both cassia and true (Ceylon) Cinnamon and are certifed gluten free along with the rest of their spices, as to tea Republic of Tea has most of their products tested and certified gluten-free also. You can visit their sites or try Amazon.
    • Thanks for replying. I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, I guess my diet now means I am a vegan but not by choice. Blood tests have picked up a lack of protein and I have seen a dietician who said she couldn't help me and referred me to a specialist who deals with IBS, which I don't understand as I don't have that.   I don't know my blood glucose levels but I think I will find out. I know Hashimoto's and type 1 diabetes is common in Celiac's, I asked my doctor for a thyroid antibodies test but he refused but I'll ask for the type 1 diabetes antibodies test. Thanks again.
    • Hi thanks for this. The kidney function test I a few weeks ago came back normal but there was a question mark over ketones, they said it was all okay, then last week the doctor rang me as there was ketones in a urine sample and I have to repeat the test next week. I'm a bit confused if they weren't worried about the blood test.   I feel for your brother, that sounds awful what he's been through. I have started to get some pain in the leg that is permanently numb, I really hope I find some answers soon. Thanks again.
    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?
