Two items I've been downing like crazy..

1 Luna Bars by Cliff (sold at Kroger) They have three kinds that are Gluten Free.. The only kind that is bearable is Chocolate Peanut butter...

2. Nestle Boost Chocolate (near the Ensure at Kroger) Its gluten Free and lactose free... The chocolate is great, the vanilla tastes awlful

Both have Vitamins, and nutrients packed into them.

The boost has proteain

And the Luna Bar has Folic Acid and Vitamin D

Both great for pregnancy.. They were recommend by OBGYN for a friend of mine having multiples.. She happened to mention to me that they are both Gluten Free products.. I rushed over to Kroger and both are great..

You guys should try LARA BARS...Google them and you'll see what I mean! they're mashed dates ,almonds,cashews and other stuff depending on the flavor! All bars are veagan,glutenfree,dairyfree,soy free,non gmo and kosher! they're distributed by SmallPlanet foods inc. I've been eating them when I can't eat anything else! I feel for you girls...its hard enough going Glutenfree...let alone being pregnant! My favorite flavors are Lemon twist,Casew cookie,peanutbutter cookie, cherry pie,coconut pie keylime pie, tropical! if you google this and click on PROUDUCT when you get to thier site...you will see that they have a visual of all thier bars...click on the bar and they have a visual on ALL the ingreadeints...LITERALY...its cute!

these bare are so simple some only have two ingredients or three. like coconut pie, coconut and dates,cashew cookie...dates,cashews and almonds!simple, They're not cooked either just raw and pure! at first its alittle odd but try a few..they grow on you....I'm about to have the cherry pie right now! (Dates, almonds,unsweetened cherries...doesn't get healthier than that!)

I do have LARA bars, but am really not a huge fan. I absolutly HATE the Cherry Pie ones (that was all I had at work with me one day before I'd tried them and was gagging before I managed to get the whole thing down)! Unfortunately they were in this multi-pack we picked up at Cosco, so I have a ton of them. If you were close, I'd give them all to you! Some aren't too bad and I can get them down, but I would not say that I even close to like them. :(

I know the cosco pak your talking about...the apple pie is so dry..couldn't stand the taste! The cherry was to bitter the first time I tryed it...there's no sugar! but after I tried some other flavors, I tried it again a month later and now I love it...I guess its an aquired taste. I HATE the bannana bread! The problem is you get used to refined food and then natural unenhanced flavors can be gross...but like I said...once my body got used to less sugar...no dairy...no gluten....I love the rawness!!! But you also have to take into consideration the pregnant issue ( I'm not pregnent by the way...but I do have two boys 12 and 21)...things can taste exagerated (for the good or bad) when your pregnent!When I was pregnent I couldn't be anywhere NEAR garlic without being noushous or puking!To each his own...but if you can handle them...they're SOOOOO healthy for you!

I like them because the natural sweetness from the dates and the nuttyness from the almonds help when I get cravings for bakery...if you find the right flavor its like biting into a soft goowey baked fruit bar only its raw...which is something I also liked about it...no chance of cross contamination!Try something like Ginger cookie..or peanutbutter and jelly...choclate chip cookie maybe...something a little sweeter?

I think the ginger cookie is one that I like a little better than most. I don't mind the apple pie all that much either. And the peanut butter cookie isn't too bad. I hadn't even thought about how the pregnancy thing might be affecting the taste of them, though I've never been a big fan of cherry anything.

An option for canadians - I know at Superstore they have a drink similar to the one the OP mentioned but specifically designed for pregnant women. It comes in Chocolate and vanilla. I have never tried the vanilla as I am not a fan but the chocolate tastes amazing. I think it is Enfalac brand but not entirely sure. I do remember it was a brand known for baby food though.

I'm seven week and feel icky REALLY icky.  I don't stop feeling sick until 1pm.  One thing that is helping is using my juicer every day and juicing carrots, oranges or apples, and some other veggie like cucumber or beet.

I'm not pregnant, just to be clear, but wanted to offer some encouragement, I hope. You ladies have my kudos for bringing a new life into the world while having to deal with this condition.

 

At any rate, calories are important, of course, but more than that is the consumption of vitamins and minerals. While I was in recovery from my last glutening, I decided to try juicing and smoothies. I felt great! I've been about a week off, and I'm starting to feel blah again. For carbs, I eat potatoes and rice, and some corn products, including grits. I'm a little lactose intolerant so I try to get my calcium from spinach and milk substitute. 

 

You ladies will need to make sure to get plenty of folate. http://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/Folate-HealthProfessional/

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
