I think you should make your "whole foods" diet your very own version...and have a gluten free beer if you want to! You're only messing up if you think you are. People try to eat mostly only whole foods but everyone likes to indulge from time to time. As long as you are not ingesting gluten I wouldn't worry too much about it. Stress isn't good for you!! Have a gluten free beer!

I agree. I don't say a word about my diet to anyone - gluten-free or not, other than "I'm gluten-free".

Yeah, I'm grain- light. But if I say anything like that to someone, next thing i know, that person will catch me eating a bag of Tostitos and think I'm "cheating". So I just eat what works and don't label it.

So have a beer and gluten-free pizza and have a good night, ya hear??

Yes, I'd say that beer is on any diet you want it to be. Kind of like how chocolate is its own food group. ;)

I had pizza and beer for dinner the other night and it was very yummy. :) We had a movie night here at home. Ordered from Dominos for the others and I made mine from the square Kinnickinnick (spelling? lol) crusts. Sauce, cheese, mushrooms, spinach, onions, and pepperoni. B)

For Heaven's sake, have a good beer. Try Green's! (Sorry, self-professed beer snob) Even Bard's Tale and New Grist are better than Redbridge... :lol:

Everyone has fun pointing out when people "break" their diet. 90% of the people I know do not know I am gluten-free or more accurately the SCD diet. Just no need for the majority of people to know that information. Even when eating out, it is only an issue if we choose to make it an issue.

Those beverages are really important for quality of life, but i'm not liking gluten-free beers. I just bought some Bard's but haven't tried it yet. I don't like New Grist at all. So it kind of looks like I'm not a beer drinker anymore, and we have a wonderful local microbrewery just down the street. Alas. But I have discovered Angry Orchard hard ciders, which more than make up for it. Go for it!

Other gluten free beers that I have tried,include:

From Milwaukee, WI - 2 breweries. New Grist, by Lakefront Brewery, made from sorghum and hops, 6-pack costs $8 - $12.

Shakpuro, by Sprecher, made from sorghum, millet and hops, 6-pack costs about $13. Not as sweet as New Grist.

Boulder CO - Tread Lightly, by New Planet, made from sorghum, corn, orange peel and hops. 4-pack cost around $10.

Henderson NV - Fox Tail, by Joseph James Brewing Co. made from organic rice, nectar, and hops. Only gluten free beer I have found that comes in a can. 6-pack about $11. Has a bit of a citrus taste.

From Europe

Green Beers - 4 different flavors, come in 22 ounce bottles. Between $6 - $10 per bottle. Pricey, but good.

St. Peters - have 1 gluten free beers and other non-gluten free beers. Did not like this beer.

2 other beers that are made with barley, but are certified as less than 20 ppm.

From Spain - Estrella Damm Daura. My wife likes it and she is not celiac.

Warrensville, IL - Prairie Path Golden Ale, by Two Brothers. 6-pack costs $8 - $12. Tastes like normal beer and my wife likes it also.

Hope you can find these beers. Have fun sampling!

Just a reminder, as we have discussed many times, Estrella Damm Daura is made from barley and may or may not have gluten in it. The US Alcohol and Tobacco Agency has said it cannot be labelled gluten-free in the US.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
