#685201 Thinking Of Going Vegetarian

Posted by on 20 March 2011 - 12:39 PM

I eat a vegan diet and am gluten and soy free. It is definitely possible, if you want any recipes message me. Chickpeas are probably the best invention ever. I've been gluten free for over two years now. It's nearly impossible to eat at restaurants while vegan (except for salad, always check the dressing) but vegeterian would be much easier, if you can handle eggs and dairy. It's fully do-able, and if it's what you want then go for it!

#668882 The What's For Dinner Tonight Chat

A bowl of popcorn, and a bowl of frozen blueberries. Might eat a can of corn if still hungry later...I call it the student diet!

#667362 Mddonalds And Their New Oatmeal

Posted by on 12 January 2011 - 09:14 AM

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that oats were often contaminated with wheat during processing, and that even if they are not the protein structure is so similar to gluten that some celiacs can't tolerate it anyways.

#667023 Anywhere To Donate gluten-free Food?

Posted by on 10 January 2011 - 08:47 PM

Broke Celiac student, that would be me. I picked up a gluten-free food bank package from my school, after a long chat about my allergies, and it was mostly those Uncle Ben's flavoured rice packets (every one contained wheat) and campbells tomato soup, second ingredient=wheat flour. I didn't have the heart to go back and ask for a trade, I'm sure they tried and I didn't want to seem ungrateful.

#1 weight-loss plan..become a student. Ugh.

#666109 Subway testing two gluten-free menu items - Chicago Tribune (blog)

Posted by on 07 January 2011 - 10:13 AM

I like that it mentions how they will deal with CC! Hopefully this works, it would be fantastic to be able to get an actual sandwich somewhere so popular..there are even Subways in some of our small towns here :D

#657035 Gluten-Free Open House

Posted by on 29 November 2010 - 10:15 AM

You could make it BYOB, no dish necessary? Or even just tell people why.."Come experience a gluten-free Christmas" or something of the like. I'm sure friends would understand!

#652632 Horses, Hay And Feed

Posted by on 11 November 2010 - 10:56 AM

Hay is just grass, alfalfa or timmothy or whatever shouldn't bother her; oat barley and wheat hay is usually made into straw, which is rarely used as bedding these days, but grain is a different story, if they are on grain at all. I assume school horses would be on grain as they are used a lot usually for lessons and need the energy. They might be on alfalfa or corn pellets, but they could also be eating oats, bran or wheat. Most popular horse treats are oats, barley and wheat bran stuck together with molasses.

That being said, I think it's doable. Warn the instructor right off the bat, and tell your daughter to be weary of grains. Bring some carrots or apples and she can feed those for treats. If she has to scoop feed get her to wear gloves and wash her hands after.

I've been around horses for 16 years, and once I found out I have celiac disease I only really changed a few things, like kissing my ponies on the cheek instead of the nose (so hard to resist haha), feeding gluteny treats in their feed bucket, and apples and carrots from my hands, and of course no eating the horse feed! (When I was younger some girls and I would dare each other to try it..sweet feed is pretty good haha)

She'll get used to it, she should wash her hands fairly often and remind her not to touch her face.

#651781 Just Lost My Udi's Virginity!

Posted by on 07 November 2010 - 06:02 PM

I heard rumours that Udis' was coming to Canada, but I didn't think it would make it past the lower mainland (I'm in BC) to us country folk..well I went in to Save-on today (and I rarely ever shop there) and saw it!! They have the bread, bagels and muffins.

I had extreme expectations and it met them. So stoked, it made my day! Egg salad sandwich timeeeeee :D

#649756 Can A Celiac Individual Tolerate Gluten-Free Pasta, Even If It Is Wheat-Based?

Posted by on 28 October 2010 - 07:28 AM

Actually, there are wheat-based products that are safe for Celiacs. It's quite common in Europe to find gluten-free-approved products with wheat starch that has had the gluten removed -- after all, gliadin is just one of *many* different proteins in a grain of wheat.)

I still wont eat anything made from wheat. I think the risk of CC is way too high. Even distilled alcohols from gluten containing grains that are supposed to have all the gluten removed I avoid..Maybe it's a bit too far but I just can't see wheat ever being safe under any circumstance.

This is a place to vent, and you are welcome to do that, but if you don't want people's suggestions then don't ask..

#647555 What's The Bread That's Inedible But Makes Good Stuffing?

Posted by on 19 October 2010 - 03:35 PM

I use the nasty ener-g products for stuffing! The hot dog buns, the hamburger buns, and the bread. Make sure you use it pretty much when you open it because it quickly morphs into rock form, but the inedible products make fantastic stuffing.

#647455 Christmas Presents. Ugh!

Posted by on 19 October 2010 - 07:26 AM

Forgive me for this, but she sounds really spoiled.. It shouldn't matter what her "definition" of a present is.. The rolling dance bag sounds fantastic, and she does want one, and it IS thoughtful, and if she can't see that then she might need to learn a lesson. And even if she doesn't believe in Santa this year you could still do the naughty card and get her nothing..maybe that will show that she can't "expect" presents under the tree or demand certain criteria.

Also, even if you aren't religious or don't have tons of family around, Christmas still isn't 100% about the gifts. Maybe you guys could build some decorations together, watch movies together, drink some hot cocoa or whatever..it sounds like you two need some bonding.
