Diane, I am so glad that you are posting on this board. I hope that you are adapting well to the diet. About the high prices--I make most of my food at home, and search for the most inexpensive ingredients, which are still of high quality. I find that if I am mixing any kinds of flours for baking, it helps to make a large quantity at one time, store them in large ziplock bags, then just reach in when I am ready to make the evening meal.

I use corn flour, corn meal, and almond meal a lot, because I do so well with those. In another post Shirley recommended going to the Chinese market for inexpensive flours, and I've found a Lebanese market near me that carries some really different items at reasonable prices. I will be hoping and praying that you find the market near you which will meet your needs. Welda

Hi,

I get some of my flours from a health food store, some from Kroger and have ordered some from a company in California, Expensive but they go a long way. I also like to mix the flours in plastic bags and have them ready to use.

Some of the rice pasta is tough , but the Thai noodles ( in the foreign food section) is very good and tender . Even my husband likes them. I mix them (cooked) with Ragu (gluten free) classic alfredo sauce and toss in some shrimp which have been sauted in butter and garlic salt. My husband absolute loves this and he is not gluten intolerant (only diabetic!!!) I think most celiacs have to cook a lot from scratch!! Forget premade dinners from the freezer section.

You got that right! I look forward to the spaghetti / taco (gluten-free of course) nights because they are so simple and quick to prepare! Your Ragu classic alfredo sauce with shrimp sounds really good, we will have to try it. Thanks :D

Hi Renee. You mention that your coffee is Dunkin Donuts coffee. If it's the coffee made in the donut shop, perhaps there is cross contamination from flour being in the air.

There are gluten-free premade dinners in the freezer section -- Amy's makes some, as well as some Indian dinners by Ethic Cuisine (Whole Foods and Krogers near me carry both). They are a little expensive, (and can be high in fat/calories), but they're good. Be sure to read the labels as not all of Amy's are gluten-free, but they are marked and can help if you just don't have time to cook.

Regarding the flours from the ethnic/farmer's markets, you have to be careful about potential cross contamination. I believe you really should call companies to verify.

I use a lot of cornstarch/potato starch in my cooking -- both of which are fairly inexpensive -- in addition to gluten-free flours, which I stock up on when they are on sale.

Good luck.

Kim, gluten-free for 5 years

    • I've been diagnosed with celiac a few months ago I thought that I had it for a while now it runs in the family.  I found out I had it a few months back when I ate chick fi a sandwich and had to go to the ER because I couldn't stop throwing up. They didn't know what it was and it took a few more months for anyone to take me seriously and find out what's wrong   Anyways I've gone gluten free now and I still have pains whenever I eat ANYTHING. It's cramping and burning and feels like my stomach is on fire.  I also have pains...below which I'm not sure what it is.  I ate a salad today, and now i'm in pain the salad had cheese, onion on it no dressing or any breading... Maybe I should stay away from cheese, I think it may be lactose and can't eat soy.   I ate some gluten free chex the other day with rice milk and ended up in pain.. I don't know maybe it's more than just celiac. I don't know if this is normal for people just going gluten free...maybe there was some hidden gluten in those foods. I don't know.   All i know is that this pain is hurting me and I'm tired. Thanks for reading...this is my first post.
    • I found my gas issues were caused by carbs, and sugars, something about how the bacteria in my gut changed and started making me gassy and extremely bloated when they got a hold of any thing more then a tbsp of grains, beans, fruit, or starch carbs. And no amount of medicine helped. Changed to 1/4 servings of those and mostly protein, fat diet. As for vitamin supplements I found I have to take B vitamin supplements 3 times a day to not go zombie mode. I personally found Liquid Vitamins Energy & Stress and the Nero-logic from them helps along with the occasional 1/2 bottle of 5 hour. As to carbonated water I avoided it when bloated cause it made me feel worse.
    • Butterbean, do go have a read of the dermatitis herpetiformis section.  See if anyone's story sound familiar to what you're experiencing.
    • Hi all. Well, it's been around twenty days since I've been taking Gas-X like meds (with simethicone), but no relief. Maybe I should drink bigger dose... Currently, I'm taking 80 mg four times per day.
      I'm so exhausted, both mentally and physically... Anyway, I have two questions:
      First, is it good or bad to drink mineral/carbonated water if you have severe trapped gas like me?
      Second: Is it possible to regain some physical strength/relieve fatigue with vitamin supplements? Thanks in advance.
    • I have had so many issues with my teeth--I keep getting decay and I have had filling after filling.  This past week, my dentist told me I may need a crown, which is pricey. I also have two missing teeth, which was a genetic thing that runs in my family. I am sick of hygienists telling me I am not doing enough brushing, flossing rinsing.  I do all three religiously (can't even imagine how bad my mouth would be if I didn't...)  Thankfully, last time I had my teeth cleaned, the hygienist said that my mouth was the cleanest one she had seen in years. And, she said, "something happened to your teeth developmentally." I explained how I had undiagnosed celiac disease many years. I am only 31... It is really disheartening.   What do you guys do to afford all this dental care?  My insurance doesn't cover a whole lot.  Thankfully, my dentist has felt bad and gives me discounts here and there.
