I was actually surprised the other day, Dad and I went for a

Country cruise to check out potato fields and they are blossoming like crazy!! Which is great considering many thought the crop was going to be ruined by the mass amounts of rain we got...I suggested we grow rice in our new paddy's while we waited for Noah to load the ark hehe 😜

Some of it is for feeding animals, too. The soy here looks good from the street. Nice and green still. Maybe I'll get out and see if we have beans.

Last year the corn in Ks fried but the sorghum did really well. I have heard some farmers switched to sorghum for this year.

The piece I heard on the radio the other day pointed out that 75% of foods we buy in the grocery store contain some form of corn. But they also said that most of the cost of things like corn flakes are PACKAGING, so the prices on things like that won't go up TOO much. It is the cost of meat that will rise the most.

Out here in the midwest, one of the things they use corn for is that abominable ethanol. (My car is a '96 and won't run on it. I accidently filled up with it once and had to have my fuel pump replaced because ethanol dried up the rubber seals.) In many areas you can't find gas that DOESN'T contain it.

Now the farmers are trying to get the rules changed so they don't have to make and sell so much of it. With the shortage of hay already critical, they (rightly IMO) want to free up more of the corn crop to feed the animal.

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
