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.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
