As I sit here in the midst of gluten-free and Maybe gluten-free and of course the NGFs Products from our Pantry...I am ready to pull my hair out..my bf's older son (he doesn't live with us) has been diagnosed with Celiac last week...this is after being violently ill for well over a year...SO YES I AM VERY HAPPY THAT HE HAS FINALLY FOUND AN ANSWER!!!...knowing well from what I have been reading about this for months I do know that it won't magically be okay either...My Bf also a very good candidate for this, went and got tested for it (has not gotten results back) has decided with his younger son to go gluten-free for this weekend to see if it will help with their itching problem... :blink: ...I am trying to be supportive but for just the weekend???...I don't want to be the one to say a weekend isn't going to prove anything or maybe I'm wrong and it will...Do I start cleaning everything 1st or do I stay with the products 1st....all I do know is that I am trying to be supportive of this in every way...but I'm swimming here in a pool of Gluten and really now don't know where to start...Guess what I am looking for is some rational advice to get through this...or can someone tell how to proceed without stepping on his "Gluten Brain"...

Hi Jinx, you sound like a lovely, concerned girlfriend. Since your DP has already been tested and wants to give gluten-free a try, and the diagnosed son is visiting, I'd do this: Buy a new cutting board and one non-stick pan, a new dedicated toaster (you can get one for $5.00 now). Save sorting your gluten-free free foods out for later. I'd concentrate on meal plans, check the forum for breakfast, lunch and dinner items.

You could buy a few new condiments unless you've been using the kind in a squirt bottle.

If you grill, I think I got contaminated a few times because we used to grill pizzas and yeast buns on the grill, so I'd avoid that unless you wrap the food you're going to grill in aluminum foil.

Your stainless steel pots will be fine, it's just the porous plastic, wood and non-stick finished pans and cooking utensils that could CC. If you've been guilty of leaving your utensil or silverware drawer open while buttering a piece of gluten toast or bread on the kitchen counter, I'd focus on cleaning those first. I'm a little OCDC about that, because I was amazed at the amount of crumbs in my silverware drawer. Even if your BF ends up not having celiac disease, you'll feel good about a wicked clean silverware abd utensil drawer, all organized and all of that.

As far as stepping on his gluten mind, my DP always used humor and didn't make an issue about the gluten-free dinners. They're really normal meals. Meat or fish or beans, potatos or rice or squash, fruit, veggies, dessert or not. (There's a killer link for a chocolate pie in a meringue shell that is fabulous!)

If you have a slow coooker, this is a great resource, http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/

Good luck! If you have any questions, everbody wants to help!

ok, where is that killer link for a chocolate pie in a meringue shell?

To OP: Welcome and I just want to say what a charming post you have written. It captures the complexity of the newly gluten free beautifully...complete with not "stepping on his gluten brain."

You really have educated yourself aobut this very well. :)

I agree with the idea of focusing on gluten free meals and just the immediate CC issues.

You could share information that you have read on here...that is...if his "gluten brain" is up for taking the information in. The important thing is he is willing to try and that is just great.

I was in a similar position when I wanted my son to go gluten free but he was not wanting to. I asked him to give me 2 weeks gluten free. He said no way! I had just finished eliminating gluten from the household (no small task indeed) and I knew he couldn't get gluten at home. He went 4 days gluten free and then ate pizza with his friends. I just prayed it was long enough without gluten to cause him to have a physical reaction. It was...his reaction was severe. So I guess my point is....how long to be gluten free before challenge varies. He may have a reaction after two days gluten free...or he may not. If he doesn't, then you can say that you have read that some people need to be gluten free longer to be able to determine if it is a problem for them.

Make delicious gluten free meals and desserts and show them how yummy it can be. Be supportive like you already are...and find a way to talk about a longer gluten-free period before challenge when you know he can handle it. It sounds like he might be open to it. Also, if the itching is from gluten, you can talk about the fact that skin issues sometimes take longer to resolve on a gluten free diet even if they are caused by gluten they may not respond in say two days.

Have fun with it too. There is no reason you can't do the challenge as a practice run and then do the experiment again later if you need or want to. Each time you do it you will learn something and so will he.

Now don't you think that she should share that chocolate pie link with us??

Let's start with that!

Best of luck!

Dear Marilyn R...THANK YOU!!!

Look at this thread.

There is a pavlova with a fruit. You could use chocolate pudding instead. I put the whole thread on here because I thought you might find it interesting. We have lots of recipes, some simple and some more complex on this forum.

This is a really easy & yummy choc chip PB cookie with no flour.

Here's the link for the chocolate pie. I substituted Rum for the vanilla because my vanilla was so old (it had been a long since I'd actually felt like baking.) If the link doesn't work, check allrecipes.com for Dream Pie.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/chocolate-angel-pie/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=chocolate%20pie%20in%20meringue%20shell&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e7=Recipe%20Hub

I topped the pie with sweetened whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings. I don't have a double boiler, but if your boyfriend made ice cream last night (WOW!) I reckon you two can work it out, you aren't cooking newbies. (Just stick the chocolate chips or chunks in a sauce pan which you place over a 2 qt pan with 1/2" of water on the stove, or nuke.)

Warning: the first time I made this pie, I consumed 1/2 a pie in one sitting. My DP almost fainted because my appetite had been lagging for months.

I made it for a family potluck the second time. My niece loved the pie (she's not gluten-free) and wanted the recipe because, in her words, that crust is great and why go for calories in a crust when you can have whipped cream? I took it to a holiday party at work and the owner of the company asked me for the recipe. He said it was the best crust he'd ever had.

Those peanut butter cookies are absolutely fabulous too, especially when mixed with roughly chopped dark chocolate. OMG!

That reminds me. Put parchment paper on your shopping list. I had expensive hammered cookie sheets that I was worried about because of nooks and crannies. I still use them for pizza or baked goods, but use a piece of parchment paper on them. It makes clean up really easy, and it seems most of the gluten-free recipes are sticky, so parchment paper is a good thing to have on hand.

And LOL I thought I could make my own toast protectors with parchment paper before I bought a gluten-free toaster. That worked good once. The second time I tried it, the paper caught on fire. That's when I found out you can get a toaster for $5 at your favorite box store.

In the meantime, you can do fish or chicken or veggies in parchment paper on the grill or in the oven. I think it's more earth friendly. DP started the paper on fire once on the grill, but we've used a boatfload of parchment paper in the past couple of years.

Good luck to you and your DP and son. :D

All of this recipe talk is making me hungry.....

I am very new to this forum, as you can probably all tell, and I am a non celiac who is looking for help for friends and searching all possible answers to a family members health problems. Does this condition severely affect dining habits? I feel as though there is not sufficient enough information in the market to allow people suffering from a diet restricting condition to eat with confidence. All of the posts I have visited so far gave me the impression that eating at home where your food can be monitored better is the suggested route. I personally have a form of GERD that restricts what I eat but I can still enjoy eating out as long as I watch what I eat. However, with Celiac, I feel like it is a riskier situation because your health is in the hands of chefs who may or may not be worrying about CC. Is the main concern with eating out fewer options or concerns about the kitchen? I am trying to warn a family member with possible issues and a friends sister with an intolerance. I will point my friends sister to this forum for support if it becomes any worse.

For me eating out is a concern because I don't like to get sick and in pain for weeks on end. Limited choices is a minor thing. I already have limited choices in the foods I can eat anyway, so no biggie. Most restaraunts that have gluten free menus at least have a good idea of what is required for gluten-free eating. But soy-free, dairy-free, nightshade free is another story. Soy is commonly used and so are nightshades and dairy. The food industry is a mine field for people with food sensitivities. Even gluten free processed foods are often made with soy ingredients.

I am only beginning to understand what celiac is. For someone who is non celiac, it is hard for me to understand a friend who is going through with it. I had more questions than I had answers. I am just so glad I bumped into this site because it helped me understand and I can now suggest recipes or even make them in consideration to my friend. Thank you for sharing everyone.

By limited choices i meant that restaurants don't have a lot of gluten free food to offer. Sorry if it was convoluted. Restaurants are starting to have req'd training in gluten allergies, which is smart because 21 million people accounts for significant missed profit opportunities. Their loss. Anyway, I completely agree with the fact that restaurants need to be more conscious of food allergens. 150 million people in the U.S. have some form of chronic illness that will restrict their diet.

The GIG (Gluten Intolerance Group) has a program called GFRAP that trains and certifies restaurants for gluten-free food prep. They have a listing of them on their website. It is still a good idea to check with the restaurant staff because their program does not include ongoing monitoring of compliance. So staff turnover or management changes could degrade the restaurants performance on gluten-free prep.

Your are right that more could be done. People with diabetes may need low carb diets. And there are plenty of people with food allergies also And people with heart problems are often on low fat diets.

    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      I don't worry about the same facility, but I check if it is on the same lines. I think it is usually a good idea to find out if things are made on shared lines. And if they are made on the same line as gluten-containing products how good is the cleaning in between? Chocolate is a good example of this. For example, I contacted a company whose chocolate I used to eat before being diagnosed and they outright told me they are not good about cleaning on shared lines and it is not safe for allergies or celiac. I have had this response from other companies as well (especially when it comes to chocolate sadly). I think this is why Godiva is not safe. Its just a good idea to check.
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      Wow you all have more balls than I do. I've been gluten free since 2007 and I'm still afraid of offending people. It gives me lots of troubles, really. I'm more like rockstarkate I guess...the "people pleasing" aspect.  I love how you all just have the flat out rule I Will Not Eat It Unless I or a Celiac Made it. (Or a trusted family member).  I still simper and grovel and cringe and apologetically turn things away.  People still put dishes in my face and say "This should be gluten free..."  and I have to awkwardly not eat it and then seem rude.  I've done the whole...checking the bottles thing too.  I do try to dart out of things more though now. I volunteered in other countries in recent years and I felt as vulnerable as all heck, having to rely on them to make food, as well as definitely feeling like I offended people who didn't get it at all. I was feeling brave when I signed up for those but after the second time I was like okay, the fear/anxiety/stress about the food is too much. I managed to dodge out of getting sick, and for the most part people humored me...but it was pretty difficult because I don't like offending people, especially other cultures, with them trying to be nice and make food for me...pretty sure I did offend people as well as annoy many others.  Anyway...no OP, you are not alone. For sure I have trust issues eating other people's food. They say they know but I do truly doubt they are as strict as I would be.   A few times I will still brave eating something...like some little mozzarella balls with vinegar...though, I did still look at the labels.  Someone had to give me a persuasive speech and show me all ingredients (just salt and pepper) after making me chicken wings once. I do tell people, basically, NOT to make me stuff. But they still do.  Another time a friend had worked really hard and was having a terrible time and offered me a burger patty when I arrived, assuring me it was gluten free. I knew I hadn't been there to watch whether she used the "bun spatula" on it or not...but I just didn't feel like giving her a fight about it since she was having a rough time and hosts like to feel they are feeding guests, blah blah. So I ate it. And got glutened. And wailed and gnashed my teeth haha. Lesson learned.  I need to stick to my guns more. I just always feel like I'm being too "difficult" as it is. But...sigh.  It is refreshing for me to read these empowered no BS responses though. You all remind me of where I'm coming from, and not that I'm just being some kind of high maintenance, rude, crazy person. You'd think after, what, nine years now, I wouldn't still be bothered by it...
    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
