Krispy Kreme donuts, especially the cream filled bismarcks, deep dish pizza, Mcdonalds cheeseburgers on the fly, artisan breads with butter, biscotti ordered with my coffee, breadsticks from Olive Garden, white wedding cake, Entemens cream cheese coffee cake, Fancy chocolates from chocolate speciality stores, going to fancy bakeries and eating my body weight in scrumptious baked goodies. Oh must I go on....... I'm not quite 3 years out, so I am still fairly new and fairly whiney..

...and just when I finally settled into being gluten free and fairly OK with it, I had to give up dairy and am lost again.....It's been 2 months and I am still adjusting...and starving a lot.

And I had the most fantastic, never-fail rye bread recipe :(


MitziG and Neroli, there is an old post on microwaveable buns that had a recipe for "Rye Buns". I haven't tried it yet but it is here (go to page 7) :
http://www.celiac.co...ead-in-minutes/

This is what it said:

Rye bun

1 egg
1 tsp molasses
2 tbsp almond meal
2 tbsp golden flax meal
1 tbsp brown rice flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
shake of salt
1/2 tsp caraway seed

Make like the original, mixing the egg with the molasses until well beaten, stirring in rest of ingredients until well mixed, and microwaving for 90 seconds. Then turn out of dish and let cool, slice into 4 rounds and make 2 sandwiches.

Yummy RYE BREAD in 2 minutes!!


I make their basic microwave buns all the time for my boys, I just substitute out the almond meal and add 3/4 tbs coconut flour, plus we skip the cocoa and add cinnamon (in the original recipe). My boys love it.


LOL at Lisa!

Greens is a nice beer, but expensive. Estrella Drauma (sp?) claims to be gluten-free to 3ppm but it is started from barley and it made me react quite badly; others do better with it. I haven't tried any other brands... I'm a beer snob but I only had a dozen beers a year at the most... Alas, all that wasted possible beer drinking time. :rolleyes: :P LOL

- Elimination diet using Atkins, 2003 – excluded wheat, caffeine, quorn. 2005, excluded sesame, alcohol
- Started diagnosis route April 2012, blood tests, endoscopy – said negative, gluten challenge, clearly something very wrong, had to stop after 3 weeks.
- Gluten Free, August 2012, Corn Free, September 2012. Removed most processed gluten free foods.
- Genetic testing, December 2012 – negative – Diagnosis – Non Celiac Gluten Intolerance (NCGI)
- Elimination diet, January 2013 – all of the above plus dairy, legumes, all grains, sugar, additives, white potatoes, soy. Reintroducing sloooowly now. Health improving.

1. Beer. gluten-free beer is ok, but I was a beer snob before and the fact that I can't have a Brewster's stout or two this winter is really disappointing.


WHAT?!?!?!?! I don't think you are looking in the right places, in fact there are a lot of high end beers available gluten free. Most premium breweries have at least 1 good gluten free beer but they are hard to find in Canada. If I have celiacs I am going to be ordering premium beers in bulk online, they are available everywhere. If I get diagnosed I am going to be drunk for the next month finding which brand appeals to me ;).

No no no! LOL I have yet to find a really good substitute for Brewsters stout... or Guinness? Forget about it! LOL

It could be because I am in Canada that they are harder to find, but that's hard for a Canadian beer snob to admit since (ahem) I don't really like American beer. :P ... Don't hurt me! lol

Greens is good but it still tastes like the homebrews we used to make back in university... I dunno. :huh:

I live in Ontario, so my stores are limited to the LCBO and Beer store. The beer store only has 1 gluten free brand and the LCBO has 5, however if you are willing to order online there are some really praised gluten free beers that non celiacs drink for the taste. Will give you a few good ones once I know. Also smirnoff ice is gluten free too.

Five gluten-free beers are available in Ontario. All are available at the LCBO at selected locations--you can special order at any of them. One is available at selected Beer Stores; again special orders are available.

RedBridge is widely available since it is made and distributed by Anheuser-Busch. New Grist and Bard's are harder to find. I have not yet found one that is anywhere close to a stout. I do miss Guinness.

For a darker brew, La Messagere Red is pretty good. It is made in Quebec. I don't know about availability in the US.

I am reading this and enjoying a Red Bridge, you made me want a beer!!!
I was visiting a doc friend of mine who happens to also be gluten intolerant, and she had a beer that was dark and stout that said "gluten free" on the label, but was made with barley. The label explained that the gluten was processed out or something like that, rendering it gluten-free. I'm not a risk taker, but trusted my friend, who drinks this beer regularly, and is a doctor, so I drank one, and no, I did not get sick, and yes, it was good. I also drank it on another evening, and did not get sick. I will have to call her and ask the name of of it and get back to you guys. Have you heard of this?


By the way, I love your easy chair kitty avatar!!!!

Has anyone ever contacted Olive Garden regarding gluten-free Breadsticks, they have a gluten-free menu, why not breadsticks too?  

 

That is what we miss in this house the most, that and croissants.

 

Shadowicewolf, your list fits for me, with a few mods....choc fudge ice cream, clam chowder, lasagna.

I have a long list of physical ailments that were being grouped into age/gender by doctors.

Began Gluten Free and Casein Free after an Allergy Test trying to find answers to health problems that the doctors just were not answering well enough. Looking back through history, I have a lifetime of allergies and gastro issues.
