Gluten And Lactose Free Since 2001 (Celiac Disease)
0

3 posts in this topic

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.

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.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
