OK guys, this new format takes a little getting used to. I hope you all come back. Last night I tried the Mayacamas spicey pasta mix and ad libbed it. I used chopped up veggies, plus slivered skirt steak and added the pasta mix with a little tomato sauce with a corn spaghetti and it was wonderful. Very easy and quick and tasted just great. :blink: Shirley in San Diego

:rolleyes: Shirley in San Diego,

Are you the same Shirley who posted as "aramgard" in the former message board? If so, I am glad to see you back. I only posted several times but I read most of the messages once I discovered the site. When the message board format was changed, I was so disappointed that I might lose sight of yours and several others' sage advice. This site has been my lifeline since I was diagnosed about a year ago. It has helped me tremendously.

Yes Flo, I am the same Shirley. Aramgard was the name my mother wanted to name me when I was born and my dad wouldn't let her. So in her honor I chose that handle. Silly isn't it? Don't ever feel alone with Celiac we are all here to help. :rolleyes:

That's kinda cool, Shirley. Any idea where your mom got the name? It is very unique.

And that dish you posted sounds good. Where do you get the pasta mix?

Hi Shirley, how are you? What is happening with your daughter and son-in-law? I saw a picture and story in the paper about a family in Harbison Canyon, and how they had fought to move in a trailer. I read the story, thinking it might be your family.

What an intriguing thought, that your mother wanted to name you Aramgard--we've got to know more about that!

Jacque, I have been wanting to find a cheese cake for my grand-daughters, who I believe might be celiac disease, so I will search until I find your recipe.

Thanks to all for your input. Welda

Hi Welda, I'm much better, though my husband got a really bad cold and now has bronchitis so I'm hoping I don't get sick again. My daughter and her husband ended up getting an RV which they can drive in and out of the canyon and are now living back on their property. My son-in-law works for Cal-Trans and they have been allowing him to work from 2 to about 10 at night so he has mornings to work on the property. I think he's burning the candle at both ends. Sherie is beginning to get her act together and feeling better about the whole thing, except that rain was a little stressing, they only had a minor mud slide. If it ain't one thing it's another. That's life I guess, either fire or flood. I used to order Mayacama products over the Celiac Mall, but last week I found them at Henry's and was absolutely thrilled. :rolleyes: You might check out, I think it may still be Boney's in north county. Welcome Back, Shirley

Welda, I reread the Mayacama label last night and found that some of it has Whey which I don't think you can eat--sorry. I'm really glad I'm beginning to tolerate some milk products and can still tolerate eggs, because being without fish and shellfish is a real downer for me. Shirley

Hi everybody!! I'm trying to come up with new things that I can actually eat. I loved pretzels BC (Before Celiac), but now, obviously, I can't eat them. I'm adjusting much better than I thought I would to this no gluten thing. But it is a learning curve, and, being newly diagnosed, I am just beginning to climb that curve.

Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated, and I'm open to emails because it is soooo nice to know that I'm not ALONE :P !!!!

Any way thanks for any ideas

As far as pretzles go...a company called Ener-G makes a wheat free/gluten free pretzel. They aren't bad at all. I actually like them better than regular pretzles. They are kind of expensive, but sure helps for the cravings!! Enjoy!!

I am newly diagnosed with gluten intolerance, it's WONDERFUL to find this message board! I've been doing okay finding gluten free foods in my area, but one thing I can't find is a good bread. I want to be able to just buy a loaf of bread like I used to, and I want to be able to make sandwiches with it. I tried a rice pecan bread, but it was quite hard & sweet, & not great tasting to me. Plus the slices were tiny. Or do I just have to get used to making bread now? This is quite the learning process for me, although it's only been 3 weeks & I feel so much better already being gluten free! Any ideas are really appreciated!

mg5676,

Are you referring to Food for Life brand bread? It's the best bread I have tried so far, but then I happen to like a slightly sweet flavor to my breads. Have you tried warming up the bread slightly (10-20 seconds in the microwave)? This improves the texture dramatically. Just be sure you don't overheat the bread, or it will turn gummy! Yes, the slices are tiny, but have you compared the calorie count to regular bread? You wouldn't want a much bigger slice (unless you are really skinny, of course)! gluten-free breads are also rather fragile and do better when made in smaller loaves. I haven't tried baking my own gluten-free bread yet, but it is always an option. Good luck, and enjoy experimenting!

    • I thought I would update you all.  I started to eat gluten shortly after this post.  I was miserable by the time I had my EGD.  The doctor gave a diagnosis after the EGD was completed, duodenitis, gastritis and hiatal hernia.  I had abnormal mucosa of the whole stomach and severe inflammation.  The biopsy results came back today, they stated early stages celiac disease.  I wonder what it would've shown if I wasn't on a gluten free diet for two years?  My doctor said he still wants me to come in for a talk, he doesn't really know if he should call it celiac disease since it's early stages....  WTH!  I've really got to find a doctor that specializes in Celiac Disease...    
    • thank you for the info, its very helpful to hear from someone else who has it and knows a lot about it. When you say I may be eliminating one problem vs 3, what would you think the other problems could be? It's frustrating because I even buy Uldis gluten-free bagels and what not and I still find myself reacting sometimes to that, I don't use butter but just gluten-free peanut butter, but like I said I don't know for sure if its from that or maybe something else. I have read on this site about a couple others that have had issues with uldis breads so could be that. but like you said I guess it can also just take awhile to get better. I read the other day that a lot of throwing up can put stress on your small intestine which can maybe cause your body to react to dairy, do you know anything about that or if that's true?
    • Thanks for the reply!  Yeah, I really should have gotten testing done before the elimination diet.  I had asked my previous doctor, but she didn't want to do it.  I was transitioning to a new insurance and couldn't get a doctor's appointment for awhile, so I thought I would just do the elimination diet.  After all, it might not have been gluten.  (<--that was my thought process...) Hindsight is 20/20.  I felt pretty good during those 3 weeks gluten free, and was not expecting how bad it would be when I added it back in.  Anyway, I found a new doctor and I think she would totally be willing to test me again 9 weeks out. I think she would also be willing to order the endoscopy if I brought her research and really pushed for it. Now that I know how good feeling good feels... I just can't see staying on gluten for another 9 weeks.  I honestly don't know how I would survive.  Even if it's not Celiac, and it's ONLY the wheat allergy... it's making my life absolutely miserable. Thanks again for the reply!  I think I'll go in Friday for the blood test and take it from there.
    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
