Darn Near Narcoleptic, Glutened Symptom?

09 February 2011 - 06:29 AM

I confess that Sunday I snuck a piece of regular pizza because it smelled SO GOOD and I was weak. figured... how bad could it be right? The next morning I could NOT manage out of bed. I was beyond exhausted and literally can not keep my eyes opened, every moment able, I would go back to sleep. I blew it off.

Last night I got up in the middle of the night and ate a bowl of life cereal. I thought it was a dream, I mean I remember doing it but not fully conscience of doing it.. I have heard of sleep eating but this was just odd. So today, I am dealing with the same symptom. I can't keep my eyes open, I am so out of it.

Is this a glutened symptom? I just want to sleep and do nothing.

"what? Flour In Cookies?

12 October 2010 - 08:14 PM

I found what appeared to be flourless cookies at HEB in the bakery. To verify, I asked 2 bakery employees. One said he watched the baker and indeed, he did not use flour. The ingredients are basically coco powder, powered sugar, eggs and vanilla. I looked at the other lady to confirm and she said.... "flour In cookies? There is no flour in cookies" So I pointed to the entire bakery and told her Yes, there is flour in every one of their cookies but I only cared about THIS cookie. She gave me a dumblook like I was crazy. "Who puts flour in cookies?"

O M G. This is a bakery where they bake all their goods on premise and most of the cookies are made from scratch right there.

I told the guy he needs to put a big BIG sign saying FLOURLESS COOKIES! They would sell like hotcakes. He is going to talk to the manager about it. :)

Experience And Service At Outback Steakhouse

01 October 2010 - 07:52 PM

First off, the waitress was knowledable and patient with me. When I finally figured out what I could have (printed out a gluten-free list for outback) she told me they have a dedicated fryer that gets fresh oil every day, for their frenchfries and to ask for no seasoning. I did not ask for fries but she offered the info and since their hamburger is 100% pure... I now know I can have a burger and fries there.

A while later, the manager who I hadn't seen before comes and tells me they are taking special care with my meal to be sure it is gluten-free. They would not want me to become ill so they are reading the recipe cards. ANOTHER manager comes with my meal and tells me everything is gluten-free and asks if he could do anything for us.

They have a gluten-free desert. A flourless brownie made in a pan dusted with sugar! It was to die for, I thought I had died and went to heaven. The waitress again was knowledgeable about what could and could not be included in that desert. Coolwhip is not to be added.

I was so impressed. They took good care of me, They got the managers involved and did not at all make me feel funny for having an allergy. They understood the allergy and accomidated my needs happily.


It was the most satisfying meal I have had since going gluten-free. I am going to write a letter to them telling them how impressed I was with their service. Waitress got a nice fat tip :)

For me, today, I would LOVE some good ole cheese n crackers! Ritz roasted veggie and colby/montereyjack.

Cheese by itself (which is how I now eat it) just isn't the same.

*maybe It's Not Gluten After All*

28 September 2010 - 07:22 AM

Do you ever feel like maybe it's all in your head? That your symptoms are gluten related because you make them?

I have been waking up with headaches again. This morning I woke with the headache AND the hip pain that I had gotten rid of when I went gluten-free.

So I start thinking back. The other night I had baked fish with a cream/mayo/spice type of toping. Broc, cheese and rice cassarole with spiced rice. I thought to myself... Maybe it's not gluten, I am so hungry for this baked fish dinner. I bet once won't hurt me and if that happens, I bet it's not gluten after all.

So i was talking myself out of it. First time ever I intentionally ate something not knowing what was in it. I mean it's not like gorging on bread but to me, I sabotaged myself.

I thought the reactions were always immediate. I see now that is not true. Today I feel like I did before I went gluten-free. Grumpy, the headache, heartburn, hip pain.

I am annoyed with myself, I am annoyed with gluten, annoyed with the confusion. I'm just mad today over this whole thing. Do you ever get like that? Blah blah blah blah blah
