My fav "go to" when I run out of time is to mix about 1/4 cup or so coconut oil with some organic mustard and a little water making a sauce. Stir it up, pour over chicken. Add some capers if you want. Bake and serve.

In Topic: New Here: Tiny Home, Husband Eats Gluten, Etc.

I do agree with your statements Colleen. However, I am sitting here thinking this down. If my partner was diabetic I would support that by not bringing stuff into the house and get my fix elsewhere which it does sound like the posters husband does to some degree. What bothers me is that she indicates that the home is extremely small which makes it doubly difficult to cook, let alone keep g.f. After living in an r.v. for 8 (loooong!) months I can totally understand. Keeping a small space "safe" is so difficult, especially when you are newly diagnosed. And I really stress the especially in the beginning part. Also the husband is eating away from home a great deal and they have a young child. The little one is missing out on the whole family meal time experience. Possibly husband could compromise some, eat at home with the family and then gluten fix his lunches out. Idk. Just my thoughts and each household has to work out what best works for them. Gluten free and shared are both very doable, I just look at the stress levels for the new diagnosed.

To the safe chain list add Red Robin, BJ Brewery. Because so many places now offer gluten free menus I make sure the server knows that I am gluten free but Not by choice, I am celiac. I discovered that some places actually prepare the foods differently if you are eating g.f. by choice as opposed to Not by choice!

In Topic: Do You List "gluten" As An Allergy?

Depending on the situation, yes I list as an allergy as that is what most people understand. And if I had a celiac child I think I would be writing it in red!!!!

In Topic: Question: Do Other Ingredients Besides Gluten Matter?

03 July 2015 - 12:05 PM

Food is such a personal thing! I am gluten free five years and paleo (no processed) for the past two years. So, personally, I will not eat anything that has additives in it. That said, to be totally honest, I do eat out once a month which means that I am at the mercy of the establishment for unhealthy choices. My overall health had improved greatly in the past two years of eating paleo so for me, personally, no processed foods works.
