Something Isn't Right

Bob's does have a gluten-free packing facility, and they test their products, but only to the threshold of 19 parts per million. You can read about their gluten-free process HERE.
I love the mixes and flours from Gluten Free Mama. She has a lot of recipes on her site, try them out. Her stuff contains simple ingredients, but a some is based on almond flour so you'll need to be watchful if you need to avoid nuts.
There are MANY wonderful cookbooks and also wonderful recipes floating around the 'net. My family is very adventurous, food-wise, and we have had no trouble finding wonderful things to try, and finding wonderful variety.

I could not eat brownies or any sweets (even from flours that were not BRM flours) because my gut was so impaired. I was nauseous and having bowel issues for MANY months post DX and I was as gluten-free as can be--our home, too. No gluten around me, no eating out and we made everything from scratch and followed a plain foods diet, no dairy, no soy.
It takes time for your gut lining to heal.
Sugars and hard to digest foods, like beans and corn are going to be problematic at first.
(and for some people--always)
Take it back to plain, whole foods for a while before you start thinking that various grains and beans and flours are causing you grief. Many people tolerate BRM without issues, but others do not for some reason.
After a while, try ONE new food and see what happens.

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.
