Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum but I thought it would finally be a good idea to find more people out in the world to talk about having Celiac disease with. I've had it since I was 9 years old. Ill be 21 this year. So who out there has good tips on eating gluten free but in a not so expensive way. So many brands out there are terribly expensive but they have come a long way since when I was diagnosed, there was about 2 brands I knew of. Now there are so many companies coming out with gluten free items, they have it on commercials, movies, magazines! Being Lactose intolerant is also pretty difficult to deal with at the same time. I can still eat a small portion but I will get gassy and that's never good! haha so anyways, since I was diagnosed, I have always wanted to make it easier for people to eat gluten free. anyone who has never had a food allergy will never understand how hard it is to go to sports meets and not be able to eat pizza or subs like everyone else. I always had to carry a lunch box around with yogurt or fruit instead because I was allergic to all the good food! slowly restaurants started to carry gluten free menus and it made life that much easier. MY dream since then has been to open my own restaurant that is dedicated to people with Celiac Disease or even just gluten intolerant people. Anyone have any thoughts on that? what would you like to see served here? would your friends who dont eat gluten free join you?

Hi there and welcome to the forum.

I tend to get as much fresh food as I can, and the prices are comparable to the rest of my gluten eating family that way. I just found the gluten free products didn't suit me, because of other food intolerances. I avoid dairy too! I mostly carry a lunchbox.

Have a good read around, try out the baking thread for food ideas, and ask more questions.

- Symptoms from 2001, maybe before. Across 20+ years, these have included, vomiting, D, migraines, headaches, recurrent miscarriage, inflammation problems (failure to heal from injuries) brain fog, anxiety and more!
- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

Just want to say welcome and I would LOVE to eat in your restaurant!

 

It would be so freakin' great to eat out in a safe, 100 percent un-contaminated place. I know my non-gluten-free friends would go there too just so we could all enjoy a meal together like the old days, sigh. There are so many good, fresh dishes that anyone would like. Just make sure you serve wine too and I'll be there LOL...

 

You've been at this forever, you must be a real pro.
