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.

    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure. View the full article
    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.

    • Thanks for posting.  I know it is difficult to talk about these sorts of things even on a webforum.  It is good thing for people to be aware though about celiac disease and that it can cause mental problems.  Gluten can cause brain damage and it can cause anxiety. If the brain does heal it may take a long time. I know that gluten can cause anxiety and obsessive thoughts.  My experience has been similar to your experience. When I first quit eating gluten I had a similar constant loop and strong negative feelings. There are lots of people on this forum who get anxiety when they eat gluten. Some people also experience gluten withdrawl where they experience anxiety after giving up gluten. It can take a long time for the body to heal and for obsessive thoughts to go away.
       It is normal for people to socialize with each other and to be comfortable about it. You said you have problems still socializing and being around people. It might be a depressing thought but it sounds to me like you still have problems with anxiety.  I would recommend considering what options you have available to treat the anxiety. When I quit eating Gluten I still had some symptoms, even though I felt much better. I have been slowly recovering over a period of about three years. I had obsessive thoughts even after I quit eating gluten.  Now I very rarely if at all think about those things. My experience is that my mind would latch on to certain things that caused me anxiety and focus on those things. Sometimes my focus would shift and I would latch onto other things. My ability to socialize has also improved greatly with time. I have made some dietary changes which I believe have helped greatly. It sounds to me like you have obsessive thoughts about things and maybe some brain damage. My experience has been that my obsessive thoughts about different things went away with time. I feel my obsessive thoughts were caused by gluten and not by what people did around me or any events. As my brain healed I became more self aware and things became less stressful.  I can't give medical advice on this forum but I can talk about my current diet and my experience with celiac disease. My experience with gluten is different from a lot of other people so it is a good idea to ask other people and to talk to a doctor.  I avoid oats and avoid almost all processed foods. I buy certified gluten free food. I eat healthy and I exercise every day. I take st John's Wort as I have read studies that say it may be as effective as some other anti-depressants for treating certain types of anxiety. It is available over the counter. I started with a small dosage and then stepped it up over time. I think it helps a lot.  This is also something that you should talk to a doctor about first. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Martin_Mahoney2/publication/7426926_St._John's_wort/links/540d8acc0cf2f2b29a386673.pdf A lot of people with celiac disease have vitamin deficiencies.  Vitamin b deficiency can cause anxiety. Some people do not process the synthetic form of vitamin b (from normal pills)  very well, and do better on an activated form of vitamin b. I take:
      1 activated vitamin b12 daily
      1 activated vitamin b6 every once in a while. 1 regular vitamin b multivitamin
      1 magnesium pill every day.
      St Johns Wort daily.
      1 zinc vitamin daily
      I drink lots of Chamomile tea and decaf coffee. I avoid most caffeine. 
      I think each of these helps lower my anxiety level.  I eat fruit with every meal. Canned fruit from walmart is cheap and good for you. I eat salad and and vegetables and avoid dairy.  I eat frozen fish often as it has healthy proteins. Eating healthy is very important. I eat potatoes and rice. http://www.livestrong.com/article/454179-what-is-methyl-b12/ I avoid eating soy sauce, soy, cheese, aged meats and fermented foods (I do drink certain types of alcohol in moderate amounts.) These foods contain lots of Tyramine. I might (or might not) have "monoaine oxidase deficiency" and if so high Tyramine foods should be avoided.  I thought I might have problems with elevated ammonia in my blood, but I am not convinced of that anymore. I limited my consumption of meat for a while as well as dairy but I am not sure if i helped.  I have heard that Celiac disease can effect other organs besides the brain and those organs can have an effect on the brain.  My current diet is working so I am going to stick with it for now. I try not to worry about things that are outside of my control. Be patient as it took me a long time to recover.  Let me know if you have any questions. There is a lot of information on this site and people who are willing to help.
