Delightfully Gluten-free
0

11 posts in this topic

Being gluten-free isn't always fun. In fact it is hardly a blessing at all. I have been gluten-free for 10 years now and I sometimes I struggle with eating well. Usually I live on corn tortillas and cheese. I have also not been so lucky to live in a city with an abundance of gluten-free stores such as people in New York or Los Angeles get to experience. But occasionally I have the pleasure of finding something gluten-free that had been right under my nose for years.

The purpose of this post is for everyone to share a hopeful story that shows that being gluten-free is becoming more popular as more people find out about it. So if you have a story of being delightfully surprised by something gluten-free please share. I will go first.

I was at a restaurant near my house called Rose's Deli and they had a "wheatless chocolate torte" on the menu. We asked the waitress to bring back the ingredients hoping that maybe, just maybe I could eat it. She came back and said, "The cook said it's gluten-free....whatever that means."

Please share...I would love to hear.

I have a couple stories taking place in restaurants.

One time we were eating at PF Changs. (chinese restaurant) and our waitress walked up to us and we asked for the gluten-free menu. she was very familiar with it in fact she was on the gluten-free diet herself and said that tons of kids who come here are also gluten-free.

okay the second story.

We decided to eat out at Outback once we found out alot of their food is gluten-free. We told our waiter about celiac and took our orders. He walked away saying "Ill come back shortly with some bread." We started laughing and he rushed back apologizing and laughing as well :rolleyes: .

Now were in Oklahoma (vaccation) to visit my grandparents. Theres a little town called Woodward that had a whole food store full of gluten free food.Boy was my mom surprised.

Hey!

Well, I do not know if you know this, but some places there are whole restaurants that are gluten-free!!! I was so excited to here that, especially since there is one in NYC because I am going on vacation there and I thought that I wouldn't be able to go out. :D

Also, there is WONDERFUL gluten-free bread at Whole Foods, but it is only served in some states (unfortunately not CA, where I live :( ) But its really good. B)

Yeah, there's an entirely gluten free restaurant north of Seattle, if anybody around here hasn't heard of it. Kaili's Kitchen in Lynnwood. I their website is wheatlessinseattle.com. It's very nice not to have to explain everything and just order a hamburger and fries or chicken strips. They also sell take away products like bread and stuff. Unfortunately, I'm over an hour away so I've only been once.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
