In Topic: Which Is The Better Brownie?

23 February 2010 - 01:41 PM

I too have to vote for Trader Joe's gluten-free brownie mix. The flavor & texture are amazing, & even my picky, gluten-eating husband loves them! Many of the other mixes have soy, so I haven't tried them. One brand I tried (can't remember which) turned out so hard that I practically needed a chisel to get them out of the pan.

On a side note, Namaste foods makes a Blondies mix that is out of this world! Add some Enjoy Life chocolate chips, & you have a panful of yumminess!

Now I'm craving something sweet.... :D

In Topic: Can Other Food Intolerances Go Away On Their Own?

23 February 2010 - 01:36 PM

My Enterolab results showed intolerance to gluten, casein, soy, & eggs. I only suspected the gluten, so the others were shocking. I eliminated them all, & after a year I tried eggs again - no reaction at all! I have since eaten eggs many, many times with no adverse effects at all, which I'm so thankful about. I've inadvertently had soy (I didn't realize it was an ingredient in certain foods I had at Chipotle) & have gotten sick every time, so I think that one remains out. I want to reintroduce dairy in small portions to see if I can be successful as I was with eggs. However, I'm just recovering from what may turn out to be a corn intolerance, so I want my gut to heal a bit longer before I try yogurt or an aged cheese first.

Good luck! I think everyone's body is totally different in how it responds.

Keep us posted on what happens for you.

I thought about pancreatitis too, in the midst of the pain. However, after about 5 days the symptoms were gone, & now I feel back to normal again. Since I had similar symptoms back before I knew I couldn't eat soy, as well as when I had to go on the gluten trial for a diagnosis, I think it's either a cross contamination issue, or a new food intolerance. For now, I'm not eating corn, other than the corn starch that's in Udi's bread, because that doesn't seem to bother me.


In Topic: Can'T Figure Out What Caused Reaction, I Need Help

20 February 2010 - 09:24 AM


Been very careful past two weeks with gluten, dairy and soy free diet and just woke up with a reaction. Ankles hurt, fingers little numb, head heavy, tired and very tempermental. I only had a few different things in my diet yesterday that I will list. Do any of these items look like a red flag for gluten?

White rice flour (I made Sue's white rice muffins from bobs red mill)

Almonds (used in the recipe above)

Popcorn (I air popped, and was purchased from local farmers market bag indicated tiny yellow popcorn)

Have you checked medications you're taking? Toothpaste? Vitamins? Is your kitchen completely cleaned of gluten/dairy/soy? There are many different things that could cause a reaction, & sometimes it's very hard to pinpoint what it is. Perhaps you are also sensitive to corn?

Good luck, & hopefully you'll feel better soon.

Hi Horsegirl,

Seems like it would help to simplify things. Why not just eat one kind of chips for a while? At least you'll eliminate some of the possible problems. It could be there is cc happening in one of the production lines.

You could also eliminate all chips for a while and test the ingredients individually. If you don't have problems with the individual ingredients, then it almost has to be an issue introduced during production.

Hi GFinDC,
I've already decided chips of any kind are on my "no no list" for awhile (maybe that's what I'm giving up for Lent??) I wanted to eat something last night but it was made with corn flour, so I avoided it, though I don't want to become paranoid either! I will rule out plain, cooked corn soon, once my stomach feels back to normal again. I hope that's not what it is!
