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.

    • Are M&Ms Gluten Free?
      Hi. Thanks for the reply. I read "wheat" on the packaging of the regular / plain M&Ms package. Not on the mini's package. I've never seen a package of mini-M&Ms. I've only seen them as ice cream toppings. I'll buy a pack and photograph what I read. Maybe this would be helpful? Thanks again, Olivia 
    • how long does it take to show signs of being glutened?
      My two year old son has been diagnosed with celiac for almost three months. So far, I think we have done well keeping him completely gluten free. Our biggest worry is cross contamination because he is so young and constantly putting his hands in his mouth. My question is, how long does it take to show signs that he was glutened? He complained of a stomachache yesterday before bed (I wasn't sure at the time if it was just a bedtime stalling technique) and also had two very messy diapers today. I've been racking my brain trying to figure out if he could have gotten glutened somehow, or maybe it's just a normal stomach issue for any kid. It would help if I knew the average time it took for symptoms to show up after someone has been glutened. Thanks!
    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      Wasn't this some gossip rag nonsense from a few weeks back?  I think it's been proven false.  But, even so, why is celebrity gossip from unreliable sources here?  And I can't leave a comment on the actual article, because he approves and often edits the comment.
    • Recovery?
      Hi PLB, If he hasn't been gluten-free very long, he might still be able to get blood testing done for the gliaden (gluten) antibodies.  More than a couple weeks may be too long tho. As far as recovery, it varies from person to person.  The condition associated with celiac that you are thinking of is probably gluten ataxia.  Gluten ataxia is an antibody attack on the brain cells that can cause problems walking and controlling muscles.  Generally it seems people consider nervous system healing / recovery to be a fairly slow process.  Although it sounds like your husband is experiencing some recovery already, which is great! I've read about coconut having benefits for people with alzhiemers disease, but don't know if it would help him.  I doubt it would hurt though.  The B-vitamins including B-12 are supposed to be very important for nervous system health.  Vitamin d is also important but make sure you take a supplement that is tested and reliable.  Check out https://labdoor.com/  for their review/test results.  Dr. Hadjivassiliou has done some research on gluten ataxia and you might find reading his information helpful. Nuerological symptoms without gastro symptoms
      http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20170845 Dietary treatment of gluten ataxia
      http://jnnp.bmj.com/content/74/9/1221.full Ubo's, Epilepsy And Celiac Testing for celiac disease usually starts with a blood antibody test and then a endoscopy to check for gut damage.  If a person has been off gluten for a while though, the tests are not much use.  The antibodies in the bloodstream start to drop off and may not be detectable anymore.  They usually say to eat gluten for around 12 weeks in that case before trying testing again.  I can understand why he wouldn't want to do that though considering his symptoms.  I am not sure it would be a good idea. Welcome to the forum and congrats on finding  away to improve his condition! If you turn on the notify me of replies slide button near the bottom left of the reply screen you can get an email when you receive responses to your thread. There is some helpful info in this thread about celiac disease.             
    • Genetic Results
      I have been looking for an explanation to what exactly I have, as my doctor just said that I have the genes that cause Celiac. They never went any further than that.... The wikipedia link makes some sense, but at the same time it does not. It almost seems like I have 1 full DQ2, and half of a DQ2?   Test: DQ Alpha 1 - 02:01,03 Test : DQ Beta 1 - 02:02,03:02 DQ Serologic Equivalent: 2,8 Method: Molecular typing of HLA antigens performed using reverse SSOP and/or SSP methods, reported as serological equivalents and low to medium resolution molecular values

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
