No big deal, but I just had my first cookie in over a year and a half. Almost all the cookies in my healthfood store contains soy so I haven't been able to eat them, but today I found Pamela's "Simplebites Extreme Chocolate Mini Cookies". I don't know if I can eat chocolate yet. I did OK with some (can't remember the brand) back at the beginning, but since then I had a "gluten free" chocolate bar that I got at a craft fair and didn't do so well. That was almost a year ago. Thought I'd try these and see what happens.

Well, they sure taste good to me. They are mini's, so I have had four of them so far. I was going to try making some of those flourless cookies using cashew butter instead of peanut butter but they don't carry cashew butter at my local shop. Maybe next time I'm in "the big city" I can find some. In the meantime, I feel a small victory having found these Pamela's cookies.

Merry Christmas to me! :D

Woohoo!!! I'm pretty excited about cookies myself these days. I finally went and picked up the Nov/Dec Living Without that has cookies on the cover. Flip back to the recipes and there is a picture that could have been taken of my grammy's ginger cookies. I started to cry. I won't be making them until the weekend but I thought I'd live the rest of my life without my grammy's cookies. Isn't amazing how wonderful cookies are for the soul? :D Merry Christmas to both of us!

You know what I'd really like? A gluten-free ice cream cookie - you know, the ones that are like ice cream cone with the frosting inside. I'm sure there is no such thing, at least not without soy. But they do have Udi's gluten-free waffles at my local store. I could probably console myself with some of those with ice cream on top. :wub:

I'm NOT going to go nuts with all of these treats, but since it's the Holidays, and everyone else is pigging out on fattening goodies, it feels good to have SOMETHING special to eat.

My favorites are the ginger snap mini's! The ones you got have soy lecithin, don't they? It's been a while since I got that flavor, they are pretty yummy. Good find...

Nope. No soy. The only "ingredient" I thought might be iffy is "gluten-free natural flavorings", but I am happy to say that I have had no reaction whatsoever. YIPPEEE!!!!!!

I love those, and the ginger snapz, too! They are tiny and crunchy, just like I prefer them. Unfortunately, cookies are a bit off limts of me at the moment... :(

    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      I have Celiac and I asked my doctor this question he did not have an answer.  It took me 4 1/2 weeks to feel better. I had a food diary I wrote everything I ate down and how I felt every day all day.  You just have to keep at it, but Gluten my not be your problem. I hope you feel better soon.
    • IM SO SCARED
      Do you have your results back yet?
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there, I do not have celiac but am trying a gluten-free diet to see if it alleviates any of my symptoms. I Know that with celiac, it can take months on a gluten-free diet to really see/feel any change, but was told that if it is only a sensitivity, that you should feel results rather quickly (within days). This was per my dr (MD). Can anyone share their experience with Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and time to feeling better on a gluten-free diet? Thanks!
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I get so frustrated!  My friend's mom is 67...there has to be a reason for this.  And all she says is, they have no idea how she can be in end stage liver disease!   Anyway, I'm doing ok.  I got cc'd on vacation which stunk.  I had forgotten how terrible it feels.  Ugh!  The good news is that my vitamin D level is finally moving up...not inching.  It increased by 3 points in the last 6 months.  Previously, it was inching with increases of .5 or .6.  So I'm pleased that I'm absorbing better. Bartie's passing really shook me up.  This disease is a scary thing as so many people go undiagnosed for so long.  Then other people have disappeared from the board(nvsmom), who were huge contributors and I worry that they aren't doing well.  But I am a worrier. How are you?
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Thanks for your kind words about my brother, Icelandgirl.  So nice to hear from you again.    Yes, this is what drives me crazy the most....people with obvious and potentially life threatening symptoms like diarrhea with severe dehydration.  I had that at the point when I was diagnosed but it wasn't the doctor's who suggested a Celiac panel, it was me.  I mean, WTF is wrong with them?  People do not have severe diarrhea and dehydration from mild problems.  Celiac is no longer an unheard of condition, gluten free is everywhere. And, don't even get me started on why so many people are developing Dementia and Alzheimer's today.  My father has Dementia and is at home with round the clock care. He has the body shape, like I did, of a classic Celiac. Bloated belly and stick arms and legs. My family will not have him tested, either.  They treat me like I am a crazy loon over that one.  I do not think he will make a miraculous recovery on the gluten-free diet but it could make his remaining time more comfortable.  When I bring him food, it is always gluten free and he cannot tell the difference.  He loved the gluten-free muffins I brought him and it made me sad to think I am the only one who cares.  Honestly, life is such a trial at times and it's because of difficult people who are afraid of change. How are you doing?

      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.
