"No, No Wheat In There, Just Bread."

13 posts in this topic

So, this is my first holiday season since being gluten-free. I just went to a neighborhood brunch, which we do every year. It's one of these very casual things so I wasn't concerned about eating or not. It's only three blocks from my house and I wasn't planning to stay long because I need to cook my turkey, etc. So I had some fruit, and was eying the egg/casserole things. I asked the host about her egg dish -- I said "is there any wheat in this?" She replied "no, no wheat, just eggs, cheese, and bread." um... :blink::lol::rolleyes:

Some people seem believe that if the bread isn't called "wheat bread," then it doesn't actually have bread. Like white and oatmeal breads. Kind of baffling.

I had a convo while in GA during my last visit with my Dad's sister (who is supposedly a nurse?) that went like this:

Me: I can't have ANY wheat

Her: So you can have white bread?

Me: No, white bread is just bleached wheat

Her: So you can have boxed mac and cheese?

Me: No, noodles are made from wheat

Her: But you can still have Betty Crocker boxed mixes right?!?

Me: *head palm* No

Needless to say I didn't let her cook for me ever....

sounds alot like my thanksgiving with grandma. She saved some halloween candy for the kids and she wanted to give some to my 13 month old who is gluten intolerant. "Can she have a kit kat bar?"

Me "no, those have wheat in them"

Her "no, it has cookie in it not bread.."

Me "the cookie has wheat flour in it"

Her, "oh, can she have a twix bar, those are different"

Me, "no those have cookie too"

Her, "oh, well she can just lick the chocolate off then"

Me, "no that would still cause problems"

Her, "why?"

I was just diagnosed on November 2nd. At the big family Thanksgiving dinner I was told I was being "too picky". Pretty sure I got some gluten at dinner. It was either from the shortening they used in the green beans (I had no idea some people put shortening in green beans) or the crumbs left by an uncle who used the same utensil for all of the food. :( He was unfortunately getting his food before I had a chance to set out serving spoons. Lesson learned next time I'll bring my own food and wait to set it out until after that uncle gets his plate.

Reminds me of a story I overhead once on the subway. It went something like this:

So I'm trying to eat healthier these days. You know, whole wheat bread, and whole wheat rice. And there's this woman at work that is allergic to wheat. So she can't have any whole wheat bread. Only white bread.

Or the cafe I went to in England.

- Do you have anything gluten-free?

- Yes, we have soda bread!

ummmm, right, and thats made with soda flour?

A Song of Thanksgiving It's Over

Oh beautiful for spacious pies

and amber fields of... bread

for purple mountain majesties

Above the loaves, she said

America, America,

We shed ingredients on thee

And crown thy food with sorghumdough

From casserole to casserole !

Oh beautiful for what to eat

Whose frantic impassioned stress

A thoroughfare for gluten free

Across the wilderness

America, America

God mend thy ev'ry flaw

Confirm thy soul in self control

And pass the cabbage slaw

O beautiful for party dream

That sees beyond this year's

Thine alabaster frostings gleam

Undimmed by human tears.

America! America!

We shed ingredients on thee,

And crown thy good with safe substitutes

From sea to shining sea.

My first gluten-free Thanksgiving too and I was ready -- with my own serving spoon, and digging into the part of the plates that had not been touched. Then I stepped away from the table and when I came back, a relative next to me was so nice to serve my plate with all of the dishes passing by. Ug! Lesson learned - guard your plate!

Really - people are so well meaning. I've been there where I didn't get it.

But, so glad that event is over! Food-wise.

Excellent! Thank you!

I live in a state with wheat stalks on my liscense plate! We all had a good laugh about that last night. :)

      Thank  you Flowerqueen and Cristiana for your replies. I'm actually feeling much better today. I got my appetite back yesterday lunchtime (a few hours after I typed the original post) and managed to keep in/hold down some chicken and lettuce!!! I also had a "fat" coffee (as I call it) before work with MCT Oil and butter (your probably going "yuk" right now but it's really nice...really haha) and started feeling a bit better after that. The nausea went away almost immediately after that although just the thought of having all that fat nearly made me sick but I just wanted to get back to normal asap. I usually have a lot of fat in my diet anyway which is normal for me so the coffee choice isn't unusual. Plus it was also the third day which was when I started feeling better after the first time. I didn't eat til lunchtime and I was good and hungry by then so I knew I was coming out of it. That nausea and trembling feeling is something I don't want ever again. I think after the workout and tearing down muscle tissue (which is a form of stress) and then not being able to hold the nutrients in for repair affected my nervous system. My theory only but to me it makes sense. Although Vitargo also comes in flavors I always get the Natural / Unflavored one so the barley is the only ingredient. As for there being something wrong with that particular batch, well, you be on to something there. Also I'm not knocking the product because as I said, I have used it before and it did exactly what it was supposed to do. But, I will never have it again. Cristiana, my last blood test revealed I had slight anaemia which really surprised me with the amount of red meat I've eaten during my life and the anxiety thing is also new as I'm usually a happy, positive person. Life is good but after this recent reaction I think it is an indirect cause of the glutening. I'm also surprised at how sensitive I've become to it and how quickly. Also what is DX? I also follow a FODMAP eating plan (I can give you more info if you haven't heard of it) which also eliminates certain foods. It's a plan directed mostly at IBS but is well worth looking into if you are suffering any gut health, digestion issues or any ailment you may have which you can't get to the bottom of. Broccoli was one of the foods which I have cut back on and I've eaten HUGE amounts of broccoli so it is a superfood for some but apparently not for others. (I even think I read somewhere it has MSG naturally in it) It's hard to find any bad articles on broccoli so this also really surprised me. It also answered a few other questions I had. Many, many thanks again to you both for your replies. It actually settled me just reading them. I'm glad I found these forums so I don't think i'll be a stranger around here for long.   Richard

      Okay, I get that you are not going to follow the advice from some stranger on the internet, but please read the links that I gave you.  Your doctor is not following the standard level of care.  I am dead serious.  I have Kaiser.  My own GP doesn't have a clue about celiac disease, but my Kaiser GI does.  Please, I urge you to get properly diagnosed.  All celiac testing requires you to be on a gluten diet.  If you go gluten free even for two weeks (it will take time to get the referral and appointment), it will mess up the tests.  Your GI will put you back on a gluten diet (called a gluten challenge) for 8 to 12 weeks.    Chances are (almost 100%) you will feel more miserable!  That will just delay your diagnosis.   Symptoms not bad you say?  I had pretty severe anemia, but no tummy issues.  Two months after my diagnosis, I fractured my back DOING NOTHING!  Yep, I have osteoporosis from undiagnosed celiac disease and I am an athlete!   Please take this seriously!    
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      Oh, you might learn how to tell if you had been glutened.  I just had anemia as my main symptom.  I did not have any tummy issues at all.  I was in shock when my doctor even suggested testing me for celiac disease!   Glutenings can vary as we are all different.  For some it is just a few days, others a few weeks and others months (that would be me).  My last official glutening as supported by follow-up antibody testing lasted for three months.  Guess what?  I had vomiting, abdominal pain, the works!  Funny how celiac disease can change and evolve over time.   Welcome to the forum!  Have some patience and learn all that you can.  The good news is that you can feel better and no medications are required!  
    • Confused
      Thank you for the information. I've been not sure if I should eat gluten or not right now. Dr. said I should watch what I eat when I emailed him the question. My symptoms aren't very bad (I understand that doesn't matter for celiac disease), so I can definitley tolerate the food. But I have been starving myself the last few days due to not knowing what the heck is going on. Thanks again.
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      If you did actually have celiac disease, it can take weeks, months and years to recover from some of your symptoms, especially neurological ones.   Best to get screened for celiac disease.  It's a simple blood test.  Any medical doctor can do it.  But a GI doctor is needed for a diagnosis, since an endoscopy is part of the diagnostic procedure.  BUT you have to be consuming gluten to get accurate results! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/ Keep on researching.  I wish you well!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
