9 posts in this topic

Mmmmm!! These are SO good. I adapted a recpie from Recipe-Zaar

2 cups gluten-free flour (2/3 cup potato starch, 2/3 cup rice flour, 2/3 cup potato flour)

2 tbsp baking powder

1 cup sugar (2/3 cup tastes great!)

2 cups chopped strawberries

2 eggs (or egg substitute?)

2/3-1 cup applesauce

1/2 cup milk substitute (Rice Dream works great for me!)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

I added in:

4 Tablespoons of Rice Protein Powder for the added protein boost.

It makes 12 muffins.

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

Hi Jamie:

Rice Dream uses barley to process their Rice Dream milk. That's printed in tiny letters on the carton. Try another brand of rice milk, like Pacific or Lundberg. ;)

here is rice dream's quote: Is Rice Dream Beverage a gluten free product?

No. Rice Dream Beverage is processed using a barley enzyme. Even though the barley enzyme is discarded after use, the final beverage might contain a minute residual amount (less than .002%) of barley protein. For a list of gluten free products click here.

i have always used either pacific, wild oats or whole foods brands b/c of this. i also got an e-mail from full circle this week saying their rice milk is gluten-free too.

here is the rice dream gluten-free list:

The following products are gluten free:

Soy Dream Non-Dairy Beverages

All varieties

Imagine Natural Organic Soups and Broths

All varieties except Organic Creamy Chicken

Power Dream Soy Energy Drinks

All varieties: Vanilla Blast, X-Treme Chocolate, Java Jolt, Sky High Chai, Mango Passion

Rice Dream Non-Dairy Frozen Desserts

Updated 6/12/02

The following varieties only:

OMG, I have been using the Rice dream this whole time (all summer) since me and my daughter have gone gluten-free. Luckily in my daughters case she doesn't like it so she uses blue diamond almond vanilla drink.

Just when you think you are getting a hang of reading the labels. It does not list anything about the barley under the ingredients. But Jenvan you are right, I went back and looked at the package and sure enough, in small letters, it is on the back side of the package. :angry:

I sure hope the new labeling laws will help to clarify this crap?? Why can't it clearly be marked as having barley in it?

Bette-

I know...it can be so complicated!! And we all get surprises. Good thing you know now. Here are several gluten-free rice milks I've tried and liked: Wild Oats, Pacific, Full Circle, Whole Foods. They are all pretty good...my one compliant is that Pacific's has a bit of a mayo taste to me...but it is doable if its all that's available. I haven't tried Lundberg, but burdee mentioned that one too.

I didn't get those muffins made...but this week is the week. I am going on vacation next week, so I can freeze and take some along then.

Jen thanks for enlightning me ;) I think for now I will just stick to the almond drinks, in all honesty I did not favor the chalky like taste of the rice dream, but I thought they all tasted that way,anyways good luck with the strawberry muffin recipe and have fun on your travels.

Jamie thanks for posting the recipe, they sound yummy, I will try it. Since we can't use Rice dream (and I do not tolerate soy) I think I will try the almond milk for the subsitute. :P

I don't tolerate soy either. I am not actually a Celiac. I am just intolerant to gluten, so it's not a problem for me to use Rice Dream after all.

Sorry for claiming it to be gluten free though! Hopefully it works with a different kind of rice milk!

    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)

    • I had a biopsy done (2 samples, 1 on a lesion and 1 next to lesions), and also more bloodwork done. All came back negative. However, I only had been eating gluten for 2 weeks prior, and it took a week of gluten for lesions to reappear. I also used a topical steroid off and on (1x a week approximately) for a month or so before testing. The dermatologist told me to stay off gluten though, and said she wants to do more allergy testing (her next open testing appt is in 6 months!!). I know I'm not the DR, but I dont think it's allergies...without a doubt, my skin begins clearing about 2 weeks post gluten-free diet...this is without changing anything else in my lifestyle. And when i had to go back on gluten before my biopsy, it took about a week, but did reappear. Now, about 2 weeks post biopsy and gluten-free, it had begun clearing until i worked outside all day in heat, humidity,  sweat etc and it has definitely irritated all the places that were healing (not new breakouts, just aggravating what was going away!). All that being said, i have a friend who is an MD( who's hobby is to attend conferences on skin conditions!), and she has told me that without a doubt, I have celiac/DH.  I think I just feel like I need test results and paperwork to show for it...especially to show family members who are unsupportive (gross understatement!) of the extreme changes I've had to make!
    • Sorry ! I have never cruised before.  Just wanting to follow your topic.  Good luck! Have a great,  safe vacation.  
    • Hi there, I hope you're all having a good day! I'll be heading on a week-long Carnival cruise shortly and had a few questions: -What is the tipping protocol? I've prepaid gratuities, but feel like the food request will warrant something extra. Should I tip the headwaiter? Hostess? Regular waiter? Chef? Those cooking at, say, the sandwich or pasta bars? If so, how much is appropriate, and should I tip at the beginning of the cruise, the end, or split it up? -It looks like the main dining room will be closed during lunch hours on most days. Any recommendations on safe bets for midday meals? I'll be on the Carnival Sunshine, for what that's worth. Thank you so much for any information you can share!
