My Husband Just Found Out He Has Celiac Disease...
Posted 01 May 2012 - 11:02 AM
We know not a lot about this disease, and wanted to see where is the best place to buy breads? Do you make your own? Is lunch meat okay? He brings sandwiches to work everyday and is confused right now. He's also a big time snacker
Any tips/advice for newbies? I can see theres a lot of great information on this board - so we are going to start reading away.

I would like to offer this thread to you as some basic starting information. I included shopping guides, some menu suggestions and safe foods for snacking.
Click on it and read through and see if any of that helps.
Many people like Glutino Genius Bread, Kinnikinnick, Canyon Bakehouse, UDI's and Rudi's brand breads. Many bake their own.
and you can search the Baking and Cooking sections.
These people offer many wonderful suggestions for meal planning and shopping.
Best wishes to you and your husband.

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; finally DXed on 11/01/10. I figured it out myself. Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.

Have you considered sending him ow-carb gluten-free dinner leftovers and some cut veggies with dip or nuts?

Probable Endometriosis, in remission from childbirth since 2002.
Hashimoto's DX 2005.
Gluten-Free since 6/2011.
DH (and therefore Celiac) dx from ND.
Responsive to iodine withdrawal for DH (see quote, above).

Thank you! I love Elana's panty and have already printed many recipes.
Here are a few more threads to get you started. Meat and veggies is a good way to go when starting out. Avoiding potatoes would be a good idea though since he probably wants to go low carb for a while.
This diabetes forum has good info and a chat feature which is nice. They have some long time diabetics on the chat that are real nice and give great advice.
