New, Overwhelmed And Looking For Input!
Posted 29 April 2005 - 10:51 AM
I'm Turtle! Was just diagnosed a week ago and in the process of learning the ropes. Slightly overwhelemed, mostly at just trying to clear ou the bead stuff in the kitchen and replace it with good stuff. I've been doing a ton of research and appreciate all the good info on this site. I'm relying on the forbidden foods list, etc. to get me started as well as will be seeing a nutritionist (although first available appt is 1st week in June). I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good type of bread machine? I LOVE bagels and figure it would be easiest to learn to make my own. As well as bake my own gluten-free bread. Any insight would be great. I have a ton of other questions but will return later to pick your brains some more. HAHA! Thanks a bunch!

The only bread I have found that tastes good is from kinnikinnick. Today I used the english muffins, put butter and cheese on them and then broiled them. I haven't tried the bread without toasting it because all of the other ones tasted so bad. But this brand toasted or broiled is pretty good. I think it is most like I remember bread tasting like.

I travel quite a bit w/ my job as well as I commute from SC to work in NC each week (My other half is in the military and currently stationed in SC. Because of my job & the possibility of him deploying to Iraq for a 3rd time in October i'm commuting for now, crazy I know). Anyhow, I plan to pack up my cooler each day and take along snacks, dressings, etc. but b/c of the nature of my job there are MANY times that I get stuck and need to grab something on the road. I'm aware of Wendy's, Chick-Fil-A, PF Chengs & Outback having a gluten-free menu. Does anyone know of any others to add to the list? Or maybe there is a list on here somewhere already that I just haven't stumbled across yet.
Thank you again for your input and support.

Does anyone have a fav bread machine that they can recommend that mixes up our special potions well and bakes well? I keep reading that it's important to find a bread machine that can mix up our gluten-free flours well. But, there are so many bread machines out there and the research i've done on them all runs together at this point.

The one resolution, which was in my mind long before it took the form of a resolution, is the key-note of my life. It is this,always to regard as mere impertinences of fate the handicaps which were placed on my life almost at the beginning. I resolved that they should not crush or dwarf my soul, but rather be made to blossom, like Aaron's rod, with flowers-Helen Keller

Here is where you can get the forbidden and safe lists.
Do remember that things you put on your hands, face, and head can easily get into your mouth so those products you use would be best if they were gluten free as well. It's not as overwhelming as it may seem...you'll get the hang of it pretty quick.
If you need help email me and I can help with anything you need.
This is a great source for info and support...people on here are so great!

I'm in the UK and my machine is called a Cookworks and comes from a shop called Argos. Acquaintances say a Panasonic is good, plus other makes. I don't know whether you get those in the States.
Check the "recipes" section in this forum in case there has been postings about bread machines (I don't check there often enough).
If not, keep asking!
Your practical approach will help you a lot. All the best.

You might try Food for Life's Brown Rice Bread. Toast it and no bread can match it.
Van's makes a flax waffle that you can toast. Amy's makes a number of burritos, enchaladas, and other dishes that are gluten free. They also make a pizza with rice crust if you can take rice at all. White rice is out for me.
