Going Off Gfcf, Okay For A Day?

15 posts in this topic

Well, since I didn't actually do anything to prepare.. or take the time to figure out cakes that could be made that are Gluten-free Casein-free.. seems like no birthday cake today!

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*

Happy Birthday, Gluten-free Casein-free comrade! Don't damage your body on your special day, silly. I don't know if you have a health food store in your area...or, my local Kroger carries this product as well..

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!!

Thanks.. Hmmm.. well, didn't see anything for making cakes at the grocery store I went to, last week. They do have a nice gluten-free section. I dunno, if my body was actually feeling better on the diet, I wouldn't even considering it.. but when my body hasn't been considerate enough to start feeling better after 14 weeks being Gluten-free Casein-free.. why should I be nice to it on my Birthday?

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

Hi,

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

Haha down with the glutenoids!

Anyway...

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 : )

dont do it!!! i am not feeling THAT better yet, but when i ate gluten at a restaurant i felt really bad for a week. it was felt like food poisoning, and considering how nice the restaurant was i dont think it was food poisoning.

bob's red mill makes a gluten-free flour mix...so maybe make a homemade cake using a gluten-free flour mix. i dont know why it wouldnt work. also, i have made pamala's brownies and my son ate the whole batch :o so they must have been good ;)

good luck to you, and happy birthday!!

I agree, don't do it! BTW, Happy Birthday! :)

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.

Alexolua, do you bake? I was given a recipe for a gluten-free pineapple velvet cake that I make into cupcakes for my kids (but it can be a regular cake too.) They like it far better than their former, gluten-full cake that I used to bake for them. I also make these whenever there are potlucks or other get togethers, no one can tell they aren't "regular" and so they're always all eaten. There's really no reason why you should pass up having cake, if you don't want to. Since eating in a gluten-free manner is more a way of eating than a "diet" (except in the dictionary sense, of course, Lol!) you should make it work for you. Something you might not be aware of though, since you say you're rather asymptomatic. Whenever two of my kids (I've three with celiac disease and me too) eat anything with gluten, their emotions go nuts. That's all the indication we have with one son. Poor guy seems to go on an emotional rollercoaster. My other just becomes extremely depressed (but with other obvious reactions.) Take care! :)

Whole Foods just announced its new gluten free bakery. Details: Whole Foods Market opened Whole Foods Market Gluten-Free Bakehouse in Morrisville, NC, the company's first dedicated gluten-free baking facility. The new 8,000-sq. ft. facility will produce 27 products, including breads, cookies, scones, biscuits, pizza crusts, whole pies and brownies, to meet the needs of the increasing number of customers whose diets require gluten-free foods.

Maybe next year you can enjoy a cake you can trust.

Happy belated birthday.

H.

Here's the cake recipe. It was given to me by another online friend (so the comments are hers.) I haven't tried it in regular cake mode, so I haven't made the glaze yet. Though, it sounds really good!

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

4 eggs

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.

Pineapple Glaze

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.

    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!  
    • I react to both wheat and barley.  I've opted to just go completely gluten free, for the sake of simplicity and my sanity.  I don't have a diagnosis of celiac disease, but I strongly suspect it.  Unfortunately, I'm not willing to endure the misery of staying on gluten long enough to pursue further testing.  I just know I need to avoid the gluten grains, so I do.  
    • I think that we have to remember that celiacs often develop intolerances due to our  damaged guts.  Our guts do not ncessarily heal either (usually adults) for  a variety of reasons even if their symptoms improve (see links below).   Nuts are just plain hard to digest.   I can not tolerate almonds, but can handle walnuts and cashews in small amounts.  I can eat peanuts too, but resort to Peanutbutter after a Glutening as it is easier to digest (maybe I have to learn to chew better!  😀)  My nut symptoms have  nothing to do with gluten as I have purchased certified gluten-free nuts and suffered with the same symptoms.  .   https://www.verywell.com/celiac-disease-when-will-your-small-intestine-recover-562341 http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/treatment/ http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23936873 i call the manufacturer when I suspect the manufacturer is sharing the line or if I just want to know.  I bought some Black English walnuts and called the company.  Those are the only nuts they process and they do not have any flavored nuts.   if you really want to test your theory out, buy some nuts from Nuts.com (certified gluten-free).   See if you get a reaction or ask your GI to retest your antibodies (which should be done annually anyway).   I just hate to have Planters get a bum rap when you do not really know for sure.......😥    
    • New to forum! Appreciate all of the information.  I have Kaiser as many of you do.  My ttg is 1.18 (Kaiser <90), iga 31 (Kaiser <90). I have emailed my pcp in regards to where we go from here.  Is this a positive result or just a little above normal like Kaiser will tell me? I have had conflicting symptoms of some sort of inflammatory problem for 9 years.  I am almost convinced that this might be my answer. Can anyone give insight?
