After 7 years totally gluten free, I don't know if I can go the rest of my life without a fried shrimp po'boy. Is there a good bread I can order for this? I have tried Against the Grain Baguettes and they are too little around. Failing that, does anyone have a recipe for this kind of bread? (I really don't want to bake, but I will!)

I'm sure I have had this gene since birth, but my first real problems started after breast cancer surgery in early 2005. Very early and small, so I had partial mastectomy and radiation. Clear five years later.
I started having bouts of sick stomach and my energy level dropped steadily.My arthritis (hips and knees) got much worse.
In January of 2008 I collapsed and was taken to the emergency room. BP was 60/40. I was about gone. Thank God the GI doctor on call recognized my symptoms. I was diagnosed with celiac by biopsy.
Since that time I am strictly gluten free. I am strong, feel good, look better and the joint pain is completely gone.
I know I come over as Pollyianna. I don't mean to make light of the problems inherent with celiac. I'm just SOOOO much better!
