Hello, my name is Melly. I technically won't be a teenager till the sixteenth of October. I found out that I have celiac disease 2 weeks ago. I'm still not feeling well and still getting used to it. Sometimes it makes me sad seeing all I can't have and I think it would be really nice to talk to someone my age that's going through the same thing. If you are, please message me

Hi Melly

Welcome to the board. I am Kaiti and I am 17(18 in a few days) so I am a bit older but feel free to email or instant message me anytime if you have any questions or would like to talk.

And you can have so many good tasting things that your friends can have. For just about everything that contains gluten there is another version that does not contain gluten. You can find out what the good brands of products are on here. If your friends tasted some of these products, I bet they would not know the difference

Hang in there

Hi Melly,

Just wanted to welcome you to the board...... I am waay over the hill (42) lol! so I am not anywhere near your age, but still, I am young at heart!!!!

There is a young man here named celiac3270 who is your age and is our expert, and also, he is wise far beyond his years...... I'm sure he will be posting his own welcome soon.

Any questions you may have, just post and there are a bunch of great people here who are always willing to help you along (after all, we have all been there, at the beginning, when it feels so overwhelming.....) Also, our motto here is no question is too stupid to ask - so don't feel uncomfortable with any questions you may have.....

Welcome to the board!

Karen

Hi Melly :)

Welcome to the boards. I'm fairly new on these boards too. How old are you specifically? I've been on the diet for a couple weeks now, I don't think its a bad diet. Some of my favorite foods are gluten-free :lol: heres a list of some of them: Original Lays stacks, cheetos, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream and these peanut butter cups (like reeses pieces) that you can find at a Trader Joes. Theres alot of sweets that are gluten-free :P

Lol :lol: . Hi Melly,

Welcome to the board... I'm 14... and was diagnosed a year and a half ago. Read the board and you'll probably find everything you've wanted to know--and a lot that you didn't :lol: --about celiac. Ummm...oh yeah, there's lots of junk food we can have--gluten-free doesn't mean junk free. And I have lists to back it up. Well, I have lists for everything :lol: : mainstream food lists, medication lists, vendor phone number lists, ingredient lists, candy lists (actually, more candy is gluten-free than not), you name it and I have a list...so if you want a 70-some odd page food guide to help you as you start the diet, I can e-mail you that. Also, here is a good ingredient list from this site: http://www.celiac.com/st_prod.html?p_prodi...-59105193589.8f

Feel free to e-mail me. It's a huge challenge at first--not knowing what's gluten-free and what you're going to eat since the selection seems so small. Then there's the often disappointing stage in which you try gluten-free foods and get really down when you try some of them...and the whole thing is confusing because it seems to happen so quickly. I can relate... ;)

No question is too stupid to ask. LOL Kaiti, Karen, anyone who was there--I'm having flashbacks to the last time I said that under the Crest toothpaste thread. :lol:

Welcome!

There are tons of yummy foods that we can have. I know the diet is overwhelming and discouraging at first and it's easy to feel like you can't have anything. But like Kaiti said, you can find a gluten-free alternative to almost anything. For example, you can still have foods like chocolate, ice cream (if you're not lactose intolerant), pizza, spaghetti, angel food cake (which I'm going to make with strawberries very soon!), pie, brownies, cookies, ect. I've had the gluten-free version of most of these foods and they all taste the same or better than gluten food.

Here are some good gluten-free brands:

Pasta - Tinkyada (comes in all the common pasta shapes)

Bread - Kinnikinick, Sterks, Glutino (toasted is best)

Pizza Crust - Glutino, Sterks, Kinnikinick

Browies and cookies - Patsy Pie

*I've heard that Kinnikinick makes good donuts but have never had them myself

Hi and Welcome

My name is Molly and I just turned 15. When I first came to this board I was for sure the youngest and couldn't relate to anyone really. That was like 3 years ago or so, I really don't know. I was diagnosed when I was 20 months old and don't remember what gluten foods taste like becasue I was so little. I don't know if I have the best tasting food but my mom does make really good bread and you can find the recipe on this website.

You can have a lot of junk food, and yes Cheetos are gluten-free, so are a lot of other Frito Lay products. They have a gluten free list on their website which is nice and they also list if it contains wheat in the ingredients or not. All Wonka candy except for the chocolate bar are gluten-free(at least they were a year ago) but they label if it contains wheat or not too.

You can e-mail me or IM me any time if you have questions.

Carriefaith, Did you just say ANGEL FOOD CAKE! tongue.gif tongue.gif tongue.gif I'd for sure like to get the recipe for that.
Yes! :D

I am going to make it very soon, I am so excited! Here is the recipe:

Angel Food Cake - seves 16

Preheat oven to 350 F, 10 inch tube pan, no grease

1/2 cup white rice flour

1/3 cup cornstarch

1/3 cup icing sugar

1 tsp xanthan gum

12 egg whites, warmed to room temperature

1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp almond extract

In a small bowl, sift together rice flour, cornstarch, icing sugar, and xanthan gum. Resift and set aside. In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat egg whites until foamy. Whie beating, add lemon juice, cream of tartar and salt. Continue to beat until egg whites are stiff. Gradually add sugar. Continue to beat until mixture is very stiff and glossy but nor dry. Sift dry ingredients, one-quater at a time, over beaten egg whites. Gently fold in each addition until well blended. Fold in almond extract. Spoon into prepared pan. Run a knife through the batter to remove large air bubbles. Smooth top witha moist rubber spatula. Bake immediately in preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly touched. Invert pan over a funnel or bottle until completly cooked. Using a spatual, loosen the outside and inside edges of the pan. Remove from pan.

**Add 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder to the dry ingredients to make a chocolate angel food cake. To make it Mocha, add 1 tsp of instant coffe granules with the cocoa

Signature -- scroll up, go to my controls and then scroll down and go to edit signature (look on left in the list of links). To change the size, highlight your signature, click on the size drop-down menu, choose small (which is a little larger than having no size), large, or largest. There will be something written like this about size and then something similar with SIZE in the name. It will change when you click to update it. The same applies to colors and fonts. I just chose to keep mine small.

PM -- two basic ways. Either, just click on the PM icon below someone's name or go to 0 New messages (or however many) and then click on "compose new message" on the left.
