I'm in the who cares about gluten, I miss dairy camp!

I'd eat chocolate bon bons... belgian ones... <drool>

Ice cream

Muesli with milk

Actually, as long as it's low lactose, I do eat some ice cream in the holidays. I get tired and gassy but if I don't have to work...

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.

1. Newcastle Brown Ale
2. Guiness Stout
3. Two-Hearted Ale

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.

-joint pain
-childhood arthritis

-mother is allergic to wheat
-ravenous appetite: I eat for 5 people
-light coloured stool
-pass stool 7 times a day sometimes

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
