#812425 Let's Post Our Celiac Genes - Everyone Join Plz !

Posted by sa1937 on 21 July 2012 - 05:11 AM

I've read your post, am diagnosed by positive celiac blood panel and positive biopsies but I don't have a freakin' clue what my genes are. I suspect there are others in the same position who've read your post.

Likewise my adult daughter is also celiac and obviously got at least one of my genes but she has no clue what they are either.

Nonetheless, your question is an interesting one for those who know what genes they have.

I know at least 5 people (right off the top of my head) who will travel to see you for your birthday and eat it with you.

Richard, SA1937 (Sylvia), Gemini, LOVE2TRAVEL and me.

No, wait 7, Colleen and apparently, SORA who asked for this recipe in the first place.

Unless, you WANT to go pantless and enjoy it yourself, in which case, I say...YOU GO GIRL!! :lol:


So much for wanting to lose weight! Posted Image Well, there's always next year! :rolleyes:

#802045 New To Gluten-Free

Posted by sa1937 on 09 June 2012 - 11:48 AM

Is there a Dummies Guide to Eating Gluten-Free?!

Welcome to the forum L!

You're in luck...there is an excellent book entitled Living Gluten-Free for Dummies written by Danna Korn.

Jules Shepard also has a good one: The First Year: Celiac Disease and Living Gluten-Free

Sorry, I can't be of any help either on dealing with your other children. Mine are grown with children of their own. But there are a lot of parents on this site, who'll probably be able to give you some good ideas as to how they've handled it.

#797998 To Be Vegetarian Or Not Be Vegetarian On Gluten Free Diet?

Posted by sa1937 on 24 May 2012 - 05:17 AM

Forgive the bluntness of the question, but just to doulbe check, are you positive the meat you're eating is gluten free? Most sausages and deli meats aren't safe, anything already marinated or sauced too.

Here in the U.S. at least, I think many most sausages (including hot dogs) and deli meats are gluten-free. Personally I avoid the deli because of CC issues and prefer to buy already packaged cold cuts. And I don't buy marinated fresh meats. If I want to marinate something, I can easily do it myself.

#797305 Hormel Pepperoni And Verifying A Gluten-Free Claim

Posted by sa1937 on 21 May 2012 - 12:59 PM

Welcome, Amy! There is no test out there that can measure zero gluten. I do use and trust Hormel as do many others on this forum.

Maybe you just can't tolerate this product for one reason or another so in that case, it's better to just avoid it. Our bodies can be pretty wonky at times and we can react to most anything and everything.

#794619 Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

Posted by sa1937 on 10 May 2012 - 10:30 AM

I not much of a FB user, but I have a question. When I just pull up the comments for the last posts, my first comment does not show up, which tells me it has been deleted. When I log in, it does show up. Do they make posts invisible except to the poster? Surprisingly my last comment is still there and hasn't yet been deleted.

Here's the direct link

#794581 Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

Posted by sa1937 on 10 May 2012 - 06:34 AM

Here's my first post on Dominos FB page (posted a couple of hours ago). It seems to have "disappeared":

"I have celiac disease and find it an abomination that a company like Dominos would come out with a pseudo gluten-free pizza. It will not be safe for me or anyone else diagnosed with celiac. While the crust may indeed be gluten-free, the risk of cross-contamination is just too great. I wouldn't trust the prep, the ovens or the knowledge of employees to prepare anything that would be even remotely safe for me to eat. Sorry Dominos...I am not on this diet because I want to be. It is a matter or life or death. Total bummer that you have to jump on the gluten-free bandwagon just because it's the latest diet craze."

And my second one posted a few minutes ago:

"It takes a big company to handle the good, the bad and the ugly and want honest input from consumers. Sadly Dominos is not one of them. So if a post is unfavorable, it's deleted pronto. And that's shameful!!!"

#794560 Domino's "Gluten Free" Crust

Posted by sa1937 on 10 May 2012 - 04:45 AM

I tweeted about ten times the other day @Dominos. I expect they are also gone.

When I posted just 25 minutes ago, there were 274 comments. There are now 268. No question they are deleting posts they consider unfavorable. I'm sure it's just a matter of time until they delete mine.

#789659 Store Bought Flour Mixes

Posted by sa1937 on 21 April 2012 - 02:34 PM

I just received a shipment of 6 bags of Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix yesterday (6 - 24 oz. bags). The box says it expires in March 2013 so obviously it does have quite a long shelf life (unopened at least). I only open one bag at a time and have never refrigerated it and haven't had a problem. I keep it in a covered Rubbermaid container in my pantry. Of course, if you have room for it in the fridge, that would be a good option. My fridge holds tons of flour...barely room for other food on some shelves. Posted Image

I also occasionally buy Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal and I do keep that in the fridge.

Have you used Pamela's before? There's a recipe on their website for banana bread that's really good. Lately I've been baking it as muffins...even more convenient than slicing it. Pamela's is one of my favorite products.

#788478 Grandson Has Been Tested

Posted by sa1937 on 17 April 2012 - 04:22 PM

A gluten-free diet can be healthy or unhealthy...it all depends on what we eat. Think fresh fruits, veggies, meats, etc. Very unhealthy if it's replaced with gluten-free junk foods. So your doctor is wrong!!! And gluten-free can be expensive...or not. It's all a matter of choices.

If your grandson gets better eating gluten-free, hopefully Mom will get on board. Honestly, who wants to see their little ones sick if they can make a few dietary changes and have a healthy kid.

Sorry I can't be of help with the potty training...it's so long ago that I don't remember. My "kids" are in their 40's now. Posted Image
