Hey,
My names Briana and I'm seventeen.
I'm actually living in the overpopulated Southern California.
I'm planning on going to college in Colorado and I'm also thinking about Idaho.
In addition to celiac disease I have a dairy allergy, am a vegetarian, and have hypoglycemia.

In Topic: Vegetarian & Celiac

So I hope I'm replying to this right.

I'm seventeen and found out I was diagnosed with celiac disease in December of 2007.
I was previously a vegetarian for about three months before I was diagnosed.
I, unlike you, don't have a problem with needles, and at the same time I found out I had a gluten intolerance found out I have a dairy ALLERGY.
So I kinda went from being just a vegetarian to a vegan without gluten.

Don't get discouraged, I know it's hard to find things to eat, especially if your like me and have no cooking skills whatsoever, but you can work around that.
I'm not sure how much of a vegetable fan you are, but I pretty much only eat them.
I go through different phases of what I eat.
Some of my favorites are:
-Bean tacos: Which I make the shell with a corn tortilla, with pinto beans, and smetimes I throw in salsa and all the stuff you like on a taco. I make this corn salsa with just defrosted frozen corn, diced up purple onions, lemon juice and parsley I think just all mixed up and that's really good on the tacos.
-BBQ: This is probably my favorite, and now my whole family asks me to make it for them, I pretty much grill pineapples, brown onions, potatoes, and mushrooms with olive oil and Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce, in one of those vegetable griller pan things with the wholes in it, sorry I don't know what the name is.
-Salads are always a good thing, especially if you switch it up with like different letuces and dressings, maybe try it with fruit really changes them so your not having the same boring salad.

DON'T FORGET:
-Avoid crutons.
-Check the lables and look them up. All Kraft products will list barley if theres any in them.
-Check the brand of the pinto beans, you never know what's safe or what's not.

If you have any questions or want to talk about anything feel free.

I hope I helped some.
Don't get discouraged, try just googling things.

Also, bread wise, Pamalas gluten free bread mix cooked in a bread maker is THEE BEST and super easy to make!

So I don't mean to be like a downer and I mean this as just not a bad way.
But like the oxalate diet I was looking into it and soy is a high oxalate and I eat a lot of soy, not because I think it's healthier but because I'm a vegan. Peanuts also they were saying is a high oxalate food, and I eat them for protein.
I don't mean to sound complicating or anything, I really appreciate the feed back. I just... don't know what I'll eat for the time I am watching my oxalate intake. You know?
I don't know why, but like when I stopped eating gluten, I didnt mind, it was easy same with dairy and not eating meat. Just... I'm not sure.
The constant urination, is definately annoying. If anything I'd like to fix that.

I'm allergic to the dairy, so I couldn't have the goat milk or the cheese.
I don't think I can go back to eating just eggs or meat again, I sorta just like grossed myself out by it. Even some of the substitutes that taste almost real gross me out cause it reminds me of eating flesh. You know?
I've never had I'm sorry but I forgot what the milk was called that you had mentioned, so maybe I will try and find that.
I'm not looking at soy for protein, I just eat it alot with most of my meals.
Soy butter, tofu, milk for cereals, so I just need to find something to replace that.
I am trying to cut back on my soy intake as much as I can.
For instance I don't just drink chocolate soy milk anymore I just stick with water.
