In Topic: What's The Bread That's Inedible But Makes Good Stuffing?

13 November 2010 - 12:07 AM

lovin' this thread. Enr-G bread yuck-sharing...
but the package looks so neat and like it could be yummy...
who really eats and enjoys it? (ok, just read there are a few that like it--good for them and the company :)
Even my baby threw it down and made a bad face.
I only use my bread machine now to make breads. Love Anna's breads and
Gluten Free Pantry Sandwich bread....

Looking forward to trying one of these stuffing recipes!

In Topic: Are There Alot Of Keurig K-cups That Are Gluten Free?

19 October 2010 - 02:15 PM

I've had a Keurig machine since last winter and I love it! I know for sure that VanHoutte French Vanilla is gluten-free, that's my favorite and I have it everyday. I emailed the company to ask. If you are unsure you can always email/call the companies that make the coffees. I have done that a few times and they've always sent a reply (and 99% have said they are gluten-free)

yeah, and I'm gussing my dh's tea is probably gluten-free, but I should check to be certain.

In Topic: Are There Alot Of Keurig K-cups That Are Gluten Free?

18 October 2010 - 10:31 PM

Does anybody know if it is safe for a celiac to use a Keurig that might run gluten-containing k-cups as well? It seems to me that the possibility for cross-contamination is definitely there...

Hmmm... I have one and had not considered that the tea I make my husband may cross-contaminate me.
The way the machine works, it makes a hole in the k-cup before sending water through it. i guess there is a slight possibility a grain of tea or coffee could be left on the spike? I need to look closer. I do know that some coffee grains escape to the bottom of the area where I place my k-cup....
I considered this an easy to clean machine and no-worries when gluten-free, but now I must look into further. :(
I'm only going into day 6 gluten-free and it's hard to think I might could get cross-contaminated by one more thing! :unsure:

In Topic: Should you be eliminating wheat from your child's diet? - CBC.ca

15 October 2010 - 10:59 PM

Are we as forum members, allowed to respond to these articles here? If not, please delete. I'm new here. I see there is not much conversation here...
but I was saddened by the article somewhat making it sound like it could be damaging to take your child off gluten, especially if they haven't tested for celiac...
I was actually told by my daughter's pediatric GI that he felt it cruel to take a child off gluten esp when other kids get to eat it. Told me right in front of her. I was asking for blood tests with possible biopsy in sight. I was thinking how bad of a parent I would be to not take her off of it and see if it helps her health and body.
She deals with constant constipation and ezcema. His cure? Miralax and mineral oil daily. How is that any less cruel than taking my child off gluten/wheat products to see if it helps her system???
Hmmmm...
I hope others might read the article and respond as well.

In Topic: Confused: Endoscopy Negative, Impossible To Be Gluten Intolerant?

15 October 2010 - 10:44 PM

Damage can be patchy and get missed on the endo. The scope only goes just so far and if your damage is in an area the scope can't reach or the damage is patchy and the damaged areas are not biopsied you can end up with a false negative. Now that your testing is finished go ahead and get started on a good strict trial of the diet. You body may give you the answer before you get back to hear the results.

yay, Ravenwood. Thanks for the extra needed encouragement. Today was day 2 gluten free. yay!
I look forward to seeing what rewards my body may show me in a few months. Thanks for this info! Very much. I know I'll see you around here. ;)
