Topics I've Started

Pizza Bella - Gluten Free Pizza

19 September 2012 - 09:41 AM

I know a lot of pizza places are starting to offer gluten-free crusts, but I'm careful and I usually e-mail or talk with them before ordering, and usually left uneasy enough I won't order a pizza from them (my favorite response to all my questions - "Our gluten-free pizza is gluten-free").

I was happy to see that my former local pizza place - Pizza Bella in Palatine IL, added a gluten-free crust to their menu. I was even happier when I got an e-mail response that answered my questions and showed they do have a plan for managing gluten-free pizza orders to minimize the risks of cross contamination.

Finally ordered a pizza from them last week.... and no reaction to it at all. I'm guessing it was an Against the Grain frozen crust (which is my favorite anyway), but just as yummy as I remember their pizza being. It is more of a delivery/pick up pizza place, but if you're in the area and looking for an option, it's worth the drive. :D I will order again, and I will remember if I do have a reaction, that there are still risks in ordering from any pizza place.

Hypoglycemia - Go For Protein Or Go For High Glucose?

02 August 2012 - 06:57 AM

So.... been dealing with episodes of regular hypoglycemia and reactive hypoglycemia for about a month - it started when I went off all grains/refined carbs. I have tried adding some back to see if that made any difference, it really does not. Thankfully, I have a good doc who was willing to hook me up with a glucose meter and told me to test and take notes, and I've found I tend to feel it when the blood sugar drops into the mid to low 80s (and 80 has been my low so far... that was 3am last night... fun! NOT!). I've been gulten free for two years (wheat allergy) but the very limited carbs thing is somewhat newer.

My question... when feeling a low - go for protein source or go for the quick glucose? It seems like every other website recommends a different one. Anyone??
