#883836 Paragone & Gluten Free

Posted by mamaw on 11 August 2013 - 04:02 PM

paragone  is to  remove  any parasites  from your  body. It is  usual   to feel  totally  drained  while  using  that product...and please  don't use  it  on a  regular  basis... I  would  suggest  digestive  enzymes  &  probiotics....

Just  get  back on  tract, clean  wholesome  gluten-free  foods. And  stick to it....its okay  to  have  a few  snacks &  sweets  now &  then  as  a  treat  but it  isn't  good , only for  weight  gain  to  eat  these  type  of  foods  gluten free or  not...

Think  WILLPOWER.......

#881048 Ingredients----What Am I Looking For?

Posted by mamaw on 24 July 2013 - 06:51 PM

Look  for things  with no gluten. Wheat  free  does  not  mean gluten free  so look  for  gluten free.......there  are  many  gluten-free   frozen meals to  choose  from...Not  sure  which  pitas  you purchased but  if  they  are  gluten-free  you  should be okay.... gluten sensitivities  vary  greatly  among  us  some  not  so  sensitive  others  very sensitive..you  will  figure that  out  as you go  along....I  would  suggest  starting out  eating  "naked " foods  meaning  no  marinades,  coatings, rubs   or  already  spiced  foods...Your  intestinal tract needs to be  pampered  in the beginning  so  think  plain meats,  fish,  fruits & veggies  in their  natural  state.Many have  trouble  eating  gluten free  processed  foods  in the  beginning.

Wheat   has many  names ie:  wheat, fara, eikhorn, spelt &  so on  , all  members  of the  wheat  family  ...also no  rye  or  barley.

No  malt products, soy  sauce contains  wheat, beer are  a few things to  watch out  for. the good  news  is  there  are alternatives  to  almost  any  wheat  food  these days....

The  bad  news  is  a lot of us  must  order  mailorder  to find  the  best of the best.....

Start out  slowly  with the basics   & take  it  step  by step  as  there is  a  learning  curve  .When you mastered  that  move  on and  add  another  step and so on...

Since  you  said  you are  not  a  suzie  homemaker  here are  some  things  to  purchase  that  are  excellent....

BiAglut  pasta the  best

tinkyada   pasta an  easy find

many more  brands....

 

amy's  gluten free  meals

 

conte's  ready  made  gluten-free  pasta  dishes.

 

joan's  gluten-free  great  bakes   bagels, pizzas   English muffins  &  more

 

against the  grain has  pizzas  &  baguettes

 

celiac  specialites  has the best donuts  & more

 

Udi's  ,  Rudi's  and  canyon bakehouse  has  breads. pizza & more

 

 

Progresso  has  many gluten-free  soups all clearly  labeled.

 

Bell &  Evans  has  chicken  nuggets,  strips

several  other  also  have  nuggets

 

Kind  bars, comfort  bars, Athena  bars, Uber  bars  are  gluten-free  plus  a  ton more 

It  is  a  good  idea  that  you  carry  a  gluten-free  goodie  bag  in your  car, purse,  at  work  so  you  are never  left  without  anything to  eat.....protein  bars, nuts, pretzels  all gluten-free  of  course...

fruit  & veggies  with  a  dip  make  a good  snack, popcorn, tortilla  chips &  salsa (gluten-free)...hummus  &  chips.. peanut  butter, applesauce yogurt , gluten-free  crackers....cheese.....

lots  of  gluten-free  restaurants:

Smokey Bones

Carrabas

red  robin

outback

chili's

Wendy's

burger  king

texas  roadhouse

longhorn  steakhouse

five  guys

chipotle

PF Chang's  Pei Wei

to help  you heal   take  digestive  enzymes   and  probiotics......

 

hth 

anything  you  crave let us know &  we  can  tell you  where  to  find  it.........

Buy  yourself  a  few  sweets or  candy  so  you  don't  feel  food  deprived...snickers,  hersey kisses,

#865123 What Do You Do At A Wedding?

Posted by mamaw on 24 April 2013 - 01:46 PM

I've  been to many  receptions  of  sorts , only  one  had  a  gluten-free  menu with a  couple  of  appetizers  not  gluten-free....Most  were  family   &  friends  events  that  know  my   gluten-free  restrictions. But, I  think  they  forget about  the  dietary issues   when  they  are  busy  with  the planning. No, I don't  think its  okay    that  I'm usually/always  forgotten  until  the  time  when  the  people  see  I  have  nothing to eat  then the bell goes  off....

So  what  I do  is  contact  the  carterer or the  restaurant  on  my own  &  ask if  they  can do  a  gluten-free  meal...I  even offer  to pay for  it  myself  but  I always  stress  that I don't  want to bother  the  host/bride/groom....

I  know  many  state  it  is  the  social  part  that  we  should  focus  on  but  after  ten years  of  that  it is  old .....I  want to  enjoy  a  meal  I  don't  have  to  prepare  too...

I  find  if  the  host  does not  have  issues  then  they never  think  about it much....family for me  is the  worse  not  ever having  a  gluten-free  option .............

Do  a  bit  of  research &  question  asking  &  one  can usually find  out  who  is  preparing  the  food for the  event.....

#861498 Disappointed At Chipotle - What Should I Expect?

Posted by mamaw on 01 April 2013 - 06:06 PM

As  with  any  chain restaurant some  people  don't  or  didn't  get  the  memo.......!!!!!  When this  happens  a nice  call to the  corporate  office  is  what  is needed  so  they  can  correct  the  problem  with  the  ones  who are  not  complying with  corporate protocals.....

As  with  any  dining  out  gluten-free  experience  none  are  100%  safe,  but  neither  is  Grandma's  sunday  dinner....but  we  can  be  choosey  when  we  go  out  for  a gluten-free  meal...

Our  local  Chipolte  is  the   best  it   will be..as  soon as  I  say  gluten free  the person  instantly  changes  their gloves  & tells  others  working  down the  line ( if  unable to  complete  the meal  by  themselves)that  a  gluten-free  meal  is  coming  down the  line. Most  often  the   first  person is  able  to  follow through to the  end of  the  line...they  tell me  the hard  taco shell is  safe, rice  bowls  are  safe,  they  have  a  corn  soft  shell  that  is  safe...They  tell me the meat  choices & so on.....

 

Being  celiac  for  ten years my  words  of  wisdom  for  newbies  is :::::: Do NOT eat  out  for  at least three  months  ,stay  away from  highly processed  foods, beer, wine, and  limit  junk foods. Give  your  body  a  chance  to heal. Eat  clean & healthy........

Have you tried digestive enzymes & Probiotics? I use Digest Gold for my enzyme & I like Dr. O'Hirra probiotic 12 professional formula .. One should not take the same probiotic for a lengthy time but swap to another brand or two .....but to start I like Dr. O'Hirra's.....

#842554 Worried About Starvation

Posted by mamaw on 12 December 2012 - 06:32 AM

As your intestinal tract heals you will be more healthy as you will be actually absorbing te nutrients from the gluten-free food you eat... before going gluten-free your body was not getting any nutrients from the food you ate, so in turn your thin & not wanting to eat anything...
It can be quick in recovery time ( some notice a difference quickly others its can take several years) So give yourself time to begin the healing process....
Start out with basic simple foods ......ie: plain naked foods......don't jump into hot & spicy!
There is alot of knowledge that you need to learn & you can't do it over night. It is a learning process that grows with you. I've benn gluten-free for ten years & still research & learn daily.....
PLEASE< never cheat or you will never find good health...
It can be quite over whelming in the beginning. This is a good place to find answers, look for a good support group in your area & hook onto a very strict older celiac who plays by the rules & keeps updated......
You will also need to look out for cross-contamination in your house. ie: pots & pans , teflon with scratches, plastic or wooden utensils, double dipping into jars, get a new toaster, gluten is a very tiny particle so it can hide anywhere...& possibly make you sick....
Kisses from a gluten eating spouse can make some ill....
Get some probiotics & digestive enzymes to help the healing ....
Force yourself to eat daily even if you have to graze all day long insead of three big meals a day....
Become a label reader...
gluten can be hidden in malt products, beer, soy sauce & so on....
There are alternatives to almost anything that is wheat products.....
If you are missing a food just ask & we can give you a gluten-free one to replace it with.......

Gotta run for now....hth

#839609 Vitamin B Injections: I Am Considering It.

Posted by mamaw on 28 November 2012 - 12:56 PM

I now take B-12 injections twice a month...You want your B-12 level to be around 850...mine was under 400 Which by the way is within the ranges but I couldn't function...I do also take multi vits & mins, Vit D & so on. Just some of us only the injection helps...I was doing weekly & may have to go back to weekly injections to keep my level at 850... It's been a month of bi-monthly & my level is only 503
