Hello -
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!

We'll ignore your bad spelling if you'll ignore ours! Welcome to the board, we are glad to have you. I have not found a bread that I like the taste of, so I just go without it completely. I don't use a machine, never have, probably never will! Come on back when you have more time and more questions. Read over the board, you just might find that someone else has already asked whatever it is you want to know!

Hi Dessa:

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. :D

Hi and thank you for the warm welcome! And thanks for overlooking my horrible spelling in that last post. I was in a hurry.....which seems to be the story of my life. I did have a chance to review quite a bit of the board. VERY helpful. Thank you to everyone who shares. I hope to return the favor as I begin my gluten-free life.

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.

I have tried a bunch of ready made breads and a bunch of gluten-free mixes. The ready made ones from Whole Foods Market are good but by far the best is Manna by Anna (google it). I make it in a really old bread machine and it comes out perfectly. I wouldn't trade this bread mix for anything. If I could only choose 1 gluten free product it would be this one. Its that good. Again if you pass a Whole Foods Market in your travels you will find an entire section in the bakery of Gluten Free bakery products that they make in their own gluten-free free kitchen.

I have to travel frequently and have found Denny's to be accommodating. I stick with their salads mostly and they are usually willing to accomodate any special requests. TGIFridays and Chilis have some low carb menus that I have never had any problems with.

Thanks so much!

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.

I also have had good luck with Denny's. They have a book under the counter where you can cross reference allergens with their food. They have been very accomodating about cleaning the grill and using clean utensils.

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!

Feel better :D

Turtle,

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.

Turtle,

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.
