My Potluck Comment

04 July 2014 - 01:18 PM

So today at work we are having a potluck. Everyone kept talking about how wonderful the carrot cake was. On and on and on. I didn't say a word. Most of the food was gluten free, so that was nice. Someone told me "I am so sorry you can't eat gluten, this cake is SO GOOD." Finally I just said "That's ok, it will make you fat anyway." ha. I couldn't resist. I told her "sorry, I couldn't resist saying that." Sometimes I have little tolerance....and I thought her comment was annoying. :(

Do You Eat The Same Foods All The Time?

21 June 2014 - 07:42 AM

Hi. Just curious if you eat the same types of foods all the time. I have such a sensitive stomach, I am thinking about only eating the same things over and over. It gets so depressing to react to everything I eat. My daughter and I are going to start a juice cleanse diet. I just wish I didn't have to eat. At work today there are a bunch of pastries. Whoopee. Sometimes I just want to eat a donut!!


thanks for listening.

Just Glutened Myself At Work. Assumed It Was Gluten Free. Upset For Not Asking!

28 November 2013 - 01:31 PM

This is what happens when I assumed something is gluten-free! Sweet potatoes with brown sugar and nuts on top. Why do you need to put flour in the topping? Of course its a potluck so everyone can bring what they want. But usually this type of topping doesnt have flour. :( i asked about it after the fact. I am working 12 hours. Luckily I brought Immodium. Hope it isnt too bad. :(

Long Island Medium Episode Tonight: She And Her Daughter's Pediatrician Are Ignoran...

20 October 2013 - 06:20 PM

Tonight Theresa Capudo (Long Island Medium) was taking her daughter to the pediatrician because, in her words, "She has this crazy idea that she's allergic to gluten!" The Dr  asked her daughter about her poop, and she said she only went once a day and it was normal. So, from her description of her poop and her other issues, it didn't sound like she had a gluten problem. BUT THEN after telling her she probably doesn't have gluten issues or Celiac disease, he tells her "Celiac disease is a fad these days...and everyone is going gluten free even if they don't have to." I am fuming now. His words kind of ran together quickly, but I know he said Celiac disease AND being gluten free is a fad these days.

I want to write to that woman and tell her she has a rude and ignorant doctor. But what good will it do?? WHY do people not think a disease related to food is REAL?? WHY??


Also, there's a teacher at my daughter's school who has Celiac. We've talked about it. I watched her eat pieces of a muffin yesterday and asked her about it. She told me she doesn't have it severely...ie: doesn't get a severe reaction to it, so she eats it in moderation. She has a sister who gets violently ill from gluten and she also has Celiac...so I guess she thinks since she doesn't react right away, it's ok to eat it! I do not understand people. I guess she doesn't care that gluten will ruin her body even if she doesn't "feel" anything. We were at an amusement park when she said this, and I was so happy to find gluten free ice cream cones at an ice cream place. And, I will add that the teacher did have gluten-free bars in her purse, but she said since we were at this park, she was going to eat whatever she wanted. Ugh. I managed to find chicken tacos, popcorn and ice cream...all gluten free. Just had to vent. I want to scream to the world: "Celiac is REAL and I am feeling so much better NOT EATING GLUTEN!!"


Svelte Protein Drinks...they Are Great Tasting...but

09 September 2013 - 04:34 PM

So, I thought I struck GOLD! I've been looking for a protein drink of some kind to substitute for a meal and to drink after exercise...and hopefully lose some weight...and today I found "Svelte". It tastes great...not gritty at all like other protein drinks, it's gluten free and the ingredients are pretty healthy. But one word I didn't recognize in the ingredients was "inulin". Now I know why I probably had diarrhea after having 2 of these drinks today! I am SO MAD!! I thought I had found the PERFECT protein drink. Has anyone tried them? If you had diarrhea did it eventually go away?? I think inulin must be like the sugar alcohols that give me diarrhea. Luckily the drinks were 50% off, so pretty cheap.


Any ideas? Gee, maybe I will lose weight from the side effects of inulin.


Just so upset now...:(
