Going Off Gfcf, Okay For A Day?
Posted 03 October 2004 - 11:16 PM
Guess, I'm fine with that.. though would it be that big of a deal if I just had fun for the day, spoil and posion myself with a nice yummy store bought cake? Oh gawd, then if that's okay.. why not have some yummy fast food for dinner, hehe.
It's not like I'm feeling any better yet anyway.. so wouldn't loose anything, LOL.
Though maybe I'd get to find out if my body has at least gotten use to being Gluten-free Casein-free? LOL
Never really had a reaction to gluten in the past.
Oh well.. something to consider I guess, despite it being so stupid. Just venting, since it'll be like my first birthday without a cake. *pouts*

Pamela's Products chocolate brownie mix is Gluten-free Casein-free and has recipes on the bag to make a cake, brownies, or cookies. My children had some friends over yesterday and they devoured this cake. The other children who hadn't had a Gluten-free Casein-free treat in their life were raving about it. It's so simple, pour out the mix, add one egg, water, and oil. Mix. Pour in pan. Bake!
Happy Birthday..stay healthy, and have a great day!!

Don't see anything to loose. Body never reacted to gluten anyway, and the casein reaction usually lasted a day. So may be a way to find out if my body has gotten use to not having gluten, and will react now? LOL
I most likely won't posion myself, just would be soooo much nicer if things were feeling better, so I'd see an actual reason not too! Hey, my day to be all woe is me, isn't it? =D

Happy Birthday to you! I hope you plan on staying on this planet for awhile, because it is always wonderful to learn that one more person has learned that they are Celiac, and to know that they will join forces with those of us who are working so hard to teach our family and friends what being gluten free is all about. We are like an army, really, chosen to spread the good news that those who have experienced sadness, hopelessness, depression, and despair, can rise above the norm and experience happiness, wellness, and joy.
Okay, my birthday is in three days, and I admit that I am a little over 21 (born October 8, 1944 in Escondido, California) but I look forward to celebrating my special day with exuberance and excitement, and with special family members and friends. A cake? Oh yeah, that used to be a part of the day, probably up to 10 years or so ago. Then I chose life over the pleasures involved in eating, and have learned a whole new way of living. Now I anticipate the joy of getting together with two of my lifelong friends, who have invited me to lunch, the movies, then dinner as well.
Sure, I'm going through a divorce, I've had to take a job after I thought I was retired, my dog chewed up my son's wooden blinds yesterday to the tune of $206, one of my friend's office's was broken into and her laptop stolen, her son has diabetes and health problems that we are praying will resolve themselves, and my sister's mother-in-law and my manager's mother died last week, but nevertheless, I know that God is in control, not me, and that He will lead me and guide me as long as I continue to be willing.
A cake? Only if I want to DIE! My symptoms present themselves as asthma, so I go into severe bronchial spasms, which is, really, very fortunate for me I think, because I am instantly convinced that what I just ate will never pass my lips again, if I can avoid that food.
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you--I hope you eat chicken instead of cake, I know that will do. Always, Welda

Alexolua im 15 and i never had a reaction either but if you have gluten you are more likely to experience something if you've been on the diet for a while. If you don't feel a thing then your blood levels can get messed up or your intestine inflamed.
On my last birthday I just went out to dinner with my family and had some ice cream. Don't forget McDonalds is gluten free : )

I had my first birthday in Aug. since going gluten-free. My daughter so kindly made me the gluten-free brownies, with choclate frosting (read the labels!). MmmMmm! The family has been very considerate, as I don't like to bake anymore!
If you'll read my post titled "Amazing" you'll see my reaction to gluten, after being mostly gluten-free for 4+ months. Not really sick, but not well, either.

Pineapple Velvet Cake
2 1/2 c. gluten-free flour mix (1-1/2 c rice flour, 2/3 c potato flour, 1/3 c tapioca flour)
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. xanthan gum
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. canola oil (I sometimes use a little less and substitute the rest w/ natural applesauce)
1 2/3 c. sugar (you can use a tiny bit less--comes out fine)
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 c. unsweetened pineapple juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine first five ingredients and set aside.
With an electric mixer, blend eggs, oil, sugar, and lemon juice. Beat well so oil is completely emulsified and the mixture is light and lemony looking.
Turn beater to low, and add flour mixture and pineapple juice, alternating.
Pour batter into greased and floured tins. Bake for 25-30 minutes for cake pans; 15-20 minutes for cupcakes. Watch carefully -- I remove when the edges are just getting lightly browned and a sharp knife comes out *almost* completely clean when inserted. It's easy to overbake this cake.
3 Tbsp. pineapple juice
1 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
Whisk powdered sugar into very hot juice. Pour over cooled cake set on wire rack.
