A Victory Today, I Just Want To Share.

12 posts in this topic

Today is a good day, today at our local festival I entered my gluten free chocolate cream pie, and you wanna know what.......I took first place!!! :lol: I just had to share this with people that understand the frustrations of gluten free baking, finding tricks that work for you, and then success!!! This has been one heck of a journey, and not everyday is this great, but everyday I come on to this forum, read other peoples stories, ask for advice, or just feel comfort from people who know exactly what this truthfully feels like. So dear friends I wanted to share this little triumph, everyone have a great weekend!

How wonderful! So glad people are discovering the virtues of gluten-free baking. I bet in addition to your success the judges' eyes were opened as well (which is also success). Way to go! :P

Yes! Share the recipe!

Something pretty cool along a similar line happened to me today. There was a bake sale in town, and one lady had a gluten free table! It seems I'm NOT the only one in this small town with Celiac. I got some cookies with chocolate chips and pecans - yum! And because I know this lady lives in a totally gluten free home, I knew they were safe to eat.

Top right side of each post there is a +- sign. Click the plus sign to Like a post and the minus sign to dislike a post. We are much more advanced on this forum than Facebook, cause we have a dislike option. :D I clicked the plus sign for Bonnie Blue's post. Try it, it doesn't hurt at all! :)

    • sorry i did not see this until a year later.  i changed all my cat food to gluten free products.  right now i'm using a dry food made by Nature's Variety Instinct Raw Boost.  it has both dry food and freeze dried meat.  since my cats lick my face i had to make the switch.  i did not mean to remove your pets from your home.  they are loved ones and they can be eased into the diet if you have not already tried.  the wet food for my other cat is easier to find gluten free but it is expensive.
    • You might want to check out the Gluten Free Watchdog - just google it - and join. Very smart lady there who also has celiac disease. She's gone to the mats for us many times. She knows her stuff! 8 products are tested per month and there are many great articles and videos as well. She's the same lady who does the Gluten Free Dietician but on the Watchdog site, you get the test results of products as well as faster info. on breaking news.
    • After reading these few posts, I really think it all depends on where you live and the doctors attitude about the whole process. I think a biopsy is not always needed.  It depends on the circumstances and symptoms, etc.  Sometimes it is harder to piece together a proper diagnosis while other times it's so obvious.  Many people now do not even have GI issues, which used to be the hallmark of Celiac. This is why it is so difficult for some.  It would be nice if there was a very definitive test that was either positive or negative, with 100% accuracy!
    • Not to beat a dead horse here but I looked at the linked article you provided and it talked about exposure to animal feed in enclosed spaces, not driving or walking near wheat fields on a windy day.  Unless you are a farm hand, feeding cattle or horses with gluten containing feed in an enclosed, non-well ventilated area, it's not an issue. The Fasano diet is a short term diet for those who are slow to heal. Some people do have problems with grains and they found that putting them on a whole foods diet only, many of them went on to heal and could then consume processed gluten free food items like bread.  Lots of people do this in the beginning for faster healing. But it only works for people with Celiac Disease and you aren't even sure that is what the problem is. I posted this so anyone new to the diet reading these things will not become confused and think you cannot walk past a wheat field or a bakery. Inhaling visible wheat flour in a bakery is not a good idea for anyone with Celiac Disease and will make you sick/react and you won't be able to work in one but walking past bread or any gluten containing food is not cause for concern.
    • I react to certified gluten free breads, but it is NOT a gluten issue.  I react to Xanthan Gum.  I do just fine making my own baked goods from scratch subbing out the Xanthan Gum for guar gum.  My gluten-free hubby does well on commercially gluten-free baked goods.  It is just a food intolerance issue in my case.   Look to other ingredients.
