So it got me to thinking (Can you smell the smoke?).......What if you were granted a wish and could eat whatever you wanted for one day with no side effects? What would your top three choices be?

Let's hope this miracle gluten-free pill that is rumored to be in the works become a reality so we can go back to enjoying some old favorites.

Thanks For Playing!

It's been 9 years so I'm having a hard time remembering but what I do miss is:

1) Alex'x Pizza (local restaurant that is a tradition with the university here)

2) MY apple pie (my hubby thinks it's the best)

3) King's Hawaiian bread, rolls, whatever

IF I WERE NOT CASEIN AND SOY AS WELL AS GLUTEN INTOLERANT I WOULD EAT: yogurt, ice cream, cheesecake, carrot cake with real cream cheese frosting, oh heck, REAL CHEESE ANYTHING; butter on all my vegies and breads; ANY milk chocolate candy, fudge, chocolate truffles; real milk on cereal (those nut/rice milks are awful :blink: ), LATTES (nut/rice/potato milks fall apart in coffee) and milkshakes; all those oriental recipes with SOY sauce. Obviously I don't miss anything with gluten. I envy all of you who can still eat soy and dairy but complain about all the gluten products you miss. I miss dairy the most. :(

OOPS! I missed the 3 things requirement. :o How about anything with real milk, real cheese or real butter??? :lol:

I believe I was the bread queen. I used to make the most delicious braided Challah breads and a round country loaf with a crusty outside... I am drooling here!! That's my first and foremost wish!! Bread and butter!!!

Second I'd choose Pizza Hut's Stuffed Crust pizza with pepperoni and pineapple... and beer (that's ONE food!!)

Lastly, real chocolate cake... made with flour... light and fluffy... with chocolate frosting!!

Oh My I miss so much. I have had food allergies and migraines a while now, so even before the doctor suspected celiac disease, things like dairy have been out for years and soy and foods with MSG are too now!!!! And so many things have MSG hidden in them. I had to cut out Chinese food years ago b/c of status migraines, oh I miss it!!!! I still kept getting migraines till I cut out MSG this year.

I miss beer and pizza!!!!!!! Cookies at XMAS will be hard. I love biscuits and stuff too. Just the smell of homemade stuff baking. Oh I miss that. Walking in a bakery. OH, sigh. Going out to eat, what a nightmare that is now. Not something you can do casually any more now. Miss it. But not worth getting sicker over!!!!!

Chicken and dumplings, yum. Well I better quit now. I miss so much. I always ate in moderation but had a little bit of a sweet tooth. I mean some of the best bonding moments with family were with coffee and sweets!!!!!! And family dinners.

I have to answer this one in this way:

Since I first discovered that gluten had been harming me, foods with gluten in them no longer even registered in my brain as 'food'...they only register now as 'poison for me, food for non-Celiacs'...so, I do NOT miss gluten-containing foods at all -

BUT, guys still register as guys, especially cute ones ;-)

So.... I truly only am 'bothered' that I have to remember to not kiss a guy that might have just eaten or drank something with gluten in it....

Otherwise, I TRULY do not 'want' anything that is not gluten-free.

So, I would have to choose the only thing I miss...

Being able to kiss without thinking about gluten first!

There would be so many things. I would start out with a big fat dount, then move on to fish and chips with french bread, fried chicken, pasta, pizza and a hamburger, those would just be my entrees, then I would eat stuffed pork chops with coated french fries and top that off with oreo's, choclate cake and cheescake! :D

dream on I guess.

I was becoming such a good beer snob and being a wine snob is a lot harder to do. :lol:

Other than that I don't miss anything derived from grains at all.

A good micro-brew while sitting around a campfire and the convenience of just picking up a slice of pizza or a falafel wrap. I can make those myself but I miss the convenience. Oh- and McDonald's french fries. I'm too sensitive to chance it.

If I knew I wouldn't be in pain, and it wouldn't cause damage, I could totally sit down and eat a whole entire loaf of fresh baked sourdough bread....Mmmmmmm.

That is the main thing that I have not been able to make a gluten-free replacement that tastes ANYTHING like the real thing...And please don't try to give me any recipes. I am an idiot when it comes to making yeast breads. :blink:

After I ate the bread, then I might go out for chinese. After that maybe stop by a pizza place on the way home! :D

Oh yummm, that sounds wonderfully sinful :P I've been gluten free for over 16 years, so I've never tasted that one. But I just had some ROLO ice cream over a sliced banana so I can live with that :rolleyes:

      Thank  you Flowerqueen and Cristiana for your replies. I'm actually feeling much better today. I got my appetite back yesterday lunchtime (a few hours after I typed the original post) and managed to keep in/hold down some chicken and lettuce!!! I also had a "fat" coffee (as I call it) before work with MCT Oil and butter (your probably going "yuk" right now but it's really nice...really haha) and started feeling a bit better after that. The nausea went away almost immediately after that although just the thought of having all that fat nearly made me sick but I just wanted to get back to normal asap. I usually have a lot of fat in my diet anyway which is normal for me so the coffee choice isn't unusual. Plus it was also the third day which was when I started feeling better after the first time. I didn't eat til lunchtime and I was good and hungry by then so I knew I was coming out of it. That nausea and trembling feeling is something I don't want ever again. I think after the workout and tearing down muscle tissue (which is a form of stress) and then not being able to hold the nutrients in for repair affected my nervous system. My theory only but to me it makes sense. Although Vitargo also comes in flavors I always get the Natural / Unflavored one so the barley is the only ingredient. As for there being something wrong with that particular batch, well, you be on to something there. Also I'm not knocking the product because as I said, I have used it before and it did exactly what it was supposed to do. But, I will never have it again. Cristiana, my last blood test revealed I had slight anaemia which really surprised me with the amount of red meat I've eaten during my life and the anxiety thing is also new as I'm usually a happy, positive person. Life is good but after this recent reaction I think it is an indirect cause of the glutening. I'm also surprised at how sensitive I've become to it and how quickly. Also what is DX? I also follow a FODMAP eating plan (I can give you more info if you haven't heard of it) which also eliminates certain foods. It's a plan directed mostly at IBS but is well worth looking into if you are suffering any gut health, digestion issues or any ailment you may have which you can't get to the bottom of. Broccoli was one of the foods which I have cut back on and I've eaten HUGE amounts of broccoli so it is a superfood for some but apparently not for others. (I even think I read somewhere it has MSG naturally in it) It's hard to find any bad articles on broccoli so this also really surprised me. It also answered a few other questions I had. Many, many thanks again to you both for your replies. It actually settled me just reading them. I'm glad I found these forums so I don't think i'll be a stranger around here for long.   Richard

      Okay, I get that you are not going to follow the advice from some stranger on the internet, but please read the links that I gave you.  Your doctor is not following the standard level of care.  I am dead serious.  I have Kaiser.  My own GP doesn't have a clue about celiac disease, but my Kaiser GI does.  Please, I urge you to get properly diagnosed.  All celiac testing requires you to be on a gluten diet.  If you go gluten free even for two weeks (it will take time to get the referral and appointment), it will mess up the tests.  Your GI will put you back on a gluten diet (called a gluten challenge) for 8 to 12 weeks.    Chances are (almost 100%) you will feel more miserable!  That will just delay your diagnosis.   Symptoms not bad you say?  I had pretty severe anemia, but no tummy issues.  Two months after my diagnosis, I fractured my back DOING NOTHING!  Yep, I have osteoporosis from undiagnosed celiac disease and I am an athlete!   Please take this seriously!    
    • Silent Celiac or Non-digestive symptoms
      Oh, you might learn how to tell if you had been glutened.  I just had anemia as my main symptom.  I did not have any tummy issues at all.  I was in shock when my doctor even suggested testing me for celiac disease!   Glutenings can vary as we are all different.  For some it is just a few days, others a few weeks and others months (that would be me).  My last official glutening as supported by follow-up antibody testing lasted for three months.  Guess what?  I had vomiting, abdominal pain, the works!  Funny how celiac disease can change and evolve over time.   Welcome to the forum!  Have some patience and learn all that you can.  The good news is that you can feel better and no medications are required!  
    • Confused
      Thank you for the information. I've been not sure if I should eat gluten or not right now. Dr. said I should watch what I eat when I emailed him the question. My symptoms aren't very bad (I understand that doesn't matter for celiac disease), so I can definitley tolerate the food. But I have been starving myself the last few days due to not knowing what the heck is going on. Thanks again.
    • Could this possibly be related to celiac or a gluten intolerance?
      If you did actually have celiac disease, it can take weeks, months and years to recover from some of your symptoms, especially neurological ones.   Best to get screened for celiac disease.  It's a simple blood test.  Any medical doctor can do it.  But a GI doctor is needed for a diagnosis, since an endoscopy is part of the diagnostic procedure.  BUT you have to be consuming gluten to get accurate results! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ http://gi.org/guideline/diagnosis-and-management-of-celiac-disease/ Keep on researching.  I wish you well!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
