I had a bowl of Chex. Unimpressive, I know, but it's easy, cheap, and tastes great! (Which, for me personally, I can't say about most other gluten-free breakfast food.)

Hi, brand new member here! (First post.) I had some Dannon plain yogurt with some fruit mixed in (strawberries) and two soft boiled eggs.

I have just been diagnosed and started my diet yesterday. I have gotten so much info from this site, and first, I want to thank all of you!

I went to the healthfood store yesterday and bought some Canyon Bakehouse gluten free 7 grain bread. It is delicious, but also very expensive, so even though I'm not much of a cook, I'm going to copy some of the recipes here and learn to make my own breads.

I wanted to mention to you folks who eat grits, if you can eat eggs, mix a soft cooked egg with your grits and they are very tasty.

I'd also like to ask if there is a brand of bacon I can buy in the grocery store that is gluten free. Thanks.

Welcome! If you are in the US pretty much all bacon is gluten free. Well I guess I should qualify that by saying I have never seen a bacon that contains gluten. Just read the ingredients and you should be fine. I eat turkey bacon myself due to a pork allergy. I like Applegate Farms Organic: http://www.applegatefarms.com/products/organic_turkey_bacon.aspx

Thanks, GFManna! I've been checking out some other gluten free foods. Yesterday I saw a salad dressing in the store that had sun dried tomatoes, olive oil, vinegar, and paprika. I didn't buy it because it didn't say what kind of vinegar. This morning on another Celiac site I saw that there is a law in the US that if the label just says vinegar, it must be apple cider vinnegar. Then I checked out paprika here, and it seems that if you are buying paprika in a container, you can get McCormicks and it'll be OK, but this salad dressing didn't mention the brand they use. Guess I won't take any chances.

I'll cruise around the site and learn more, but, offhand, does anyone know of a grocery store salad dressing that is OK? One of my problems is that I live in the middle of nowhere. We have a tiny grocery store that doesn't have much in it. The nearest "big" city is still only 60,000 people, and it's 60 miles away. I checked for Gluten Free Bisquick, and I would have to drive 400 MILES to get it! :(

Most salad dressing are fine. Kraft is a company that will clearly label wheat, rye or barley in any product. That makes it a bit easier.

As Kareng said most salad dressings are fine. In the US and Canada wheat has to be labeled. So the only gluteny thing that *could* be hiding is barely (AKA malt) or rye. I've never seen rye used in dressings. Barely could potentially hide in "natural flavorings" but it's very rare that it would be used there and malt vinegar will be disclosed. That dressing you were looking at was probably fine if those were the only ingredients. Wish Bone labels some of their dressing gluten-free and so does Kraft. I make my own dressings with olive oil and vinegar, but there are many that are gluten-free if gluten is your only restriction.

Kens, Kraft, and Wishbone have several gluten free dressings. Off the top of my head I know that Wishbone Ranch dressing is actually labeled gluten free. Also you can order MANY gluten free items on (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned). I know you can get the Gluten Free Bisquick there. Hope that helps a little.

Thanks so much for the info! I've been feeling a bit scared, confused, and alone. I think I mentioned, I live in the middle of nowhere and there aren't a lot of resources here. I keep finding that I can't get some products that sound so good, like the gluten free Bisquick, or the Eagle Mills gluten free flour. I know I could probabaly order some things online, but I don't even have a credit card so that's out, unless I get a friend to order for me.

I'm on day two of the diet and I am hungry, even though I've eaten quite a lot today. Stomach is growling like crazy. I read here that that is common. Guess I'll get over it in time.

It is a relief to have found this place. In my tiny town, I think I'm the only person who ever even heard of Celiac, and it is so good to have a place to come talk to knowledgable people about it. Again, THANKS!

Scrambled eggs with chives and chevre; bacon. It sounds like it would go well with coffee but I DETEST coffee so I just had milk instead (although I love the smell of brewing coffee).

I always loved the smell but hated the taste when I'd try a sip of Mom's coffee. She used milk and sugar. Then one day I tried it black and it tasted just like it smells. People think it will be bitter without the milk and sugar, but if it's fresh, it is no more bitter than a glass of water. A doctor also told me that the lactic acid in the milk or cream reacts with something in the coffee to make a stronger acid, so it's bad for your stomach. (That was back when they thought I might have an ulcer.)

Alas - I have had it black - every which way but still do not like it! There are very few things I do not like. My palage is extremely adventurous. Just not coffee for some reason. Have tried many yummy deviations in Italy and just do not enjoy the coffee flavour in anything - even traditional tiramisu.

Beware of soy sauce in salad dressings! It's pretty common, but on the label. It's also found in a lot of food service salad dressings.

Today I just had coffee. Bad, I know. I can't get motivated in the morning. Tomorrow I am going to make myself eat. I'm going to have cream of rice with maple syrup and cantaloupe.

I skipped breakfast today too. I just don't feel like eating when it's hot outside. I'll try to do better tommorrow.

A banana and a handful of safe roasted nuts(mix of pistachio, almonds and cashews). 2 cups of black coffee.

I know I should eat better breakfasts, but it's hard to get motivated enough to shower, do my hair, apply make up and show up for work. I probably need to get my blood checked again. I went off my multivitamin because they made me sick (4th time with a new mult-v that wasn't cheap.) And I read all the ingredients. Oops, sorry, I'll stop my ranting and whining.

Woke up early with heartburn. Where did THAT come from? All I had last night was salad and a turkey sandwich on Rudi's. So my breakfast is a handful of Pamela's ginger snaps and some pepto bismol.

    • Susan Nash - this is interesting. Do you know anyone who has had success with supplements?  My doctor has just said to me that she has noticed a lot of celiac ladies have thinner hair in later life.  Obviously, that is just her observation. But I am going to ask for some vitamin and mineral testing so I can supplement any shortfall in case that is a problem.  I also am iron anemic which I'm sure isn't helping.   I have also read it is important that people who are worried about hair loss make sure they are eating enough protein.
    • Previous studies have indicated an increase in celiac disease rates in the United States, but these studies have been done on narrow populations, and did not produce results that are nationally representative. View the full article
    • No worries!!! 

      Yes I've been completely gluten free for over a year now, except when I get glutened from restaurants etc. My 'traces symptoms' have always been major bloating and lots of bathroom breaks but now during my gluten challenge so far I've had some super crazy symptoms... varying from loose stools to severe constipation, bloating 24/7, shortness of breath, rash, joint pains, mood swings, brain fog, headaches and some sharp pains similar to brain freeze but worse... the list goes on, but I'm determined to have a definite result! 
    • Ennis_TX - Your post rings true with me. I was only diagnosed in May, but from May through.... basically two weeks ago, I was out of my mind. I completely understand when you describe it. I had zero self control. I retired from the Army after 21 years and had always had pride in myself that I could handle just about anything thrown my way. That was until this disease. I found myself sobbing uncontrollably, not getting out of bed till late afternoon, hiding in the bedroom from my own family, missing work, not being able to make simple decisions, I was getting at most, 3 hours of sleep a night. I would sit up in bed and literally scream out loud in frustration. I asked my wife several times to bring me to the VA Psyc. ward (which she talked me out of). I had no pleasure or happiness in my life even though I have a very supportive wife of 32 years, and two ideal kids with three grandkids. I had NO reason to feel the way I did, but yet, there I was. And like you mentioned, I too had a "Bucket List" per say.  To top it all off, I had this horrible muscle pain in my legs and arms. Joints a little, but the muscles were in constant pain. One month ago they diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. At this point I am not willing to accept that diagnosis.  They started me on Gabapentin and these last two weeks I have actually started feeling less pain in the muscles and my mind is bouncing back too. Although the muscle pain came back a bit Sunday, and has me a little concerned. I keep telling myself it has only been 4 months gluten-free, and that it will take time. But I have to admit, I do not have much patience and I want to start feeling better now.   I ran into an old Army friend a few weeks back, and he had been diagnosed in 2009. He told me everything he went through and other than diarrhea and an inflamed throat, his biggest symptoms were depression/anxiety and brain fog. He said his wife was so worried she sold all of his guns. He would sometimes find himself in the backyard just curled up in the grass wondering when it would end for him. Absolute craziness. When I shared the issues I was having he could relate 100%. He said he hasn't met anyone else that went through the same things as him and it was therapeutic for us both. He told me of some places that were Celiac friendly, and we agreed to let each other know when something new hits the market, or any other good news via text. Back in May I searched for a celiac support group near by, but no luck. I stumbled on this forum and it has helped me tremendously. Stories like yours helped to insure me I was not losing my mind. Which, I might add, I told many VA & civilian Psychiatrists that indeed I was. Thanks for your post, and I hope nothing but the best for you, here forward. Dharwood
    • It is enough for the endoscopy, but not for the blood panel.  It could be worth trying for the blood test, but there is a greater chance of it being negative.  I assume you have been gluten-free for a while.  I admire that you were able to do the gluten challenge!  (I guess I should have pulled up your previous posts, but I was busy getting my kid to school.)
