I've mixed wheat bran into my cereal and it gave me no "wheat" pain ,and make me feel fuller longer.
I don't think it has wheat protein,since it's just the outer husk of the wheat and is not absorbed by the intestine. I think wheat bran is a celiac's best friend ! What do you think.
At the risk of being warned or even banned, I'm going to say that this has to be about one of the dumbest things that I've heard. Just because it's the wheat husk, it doesn't have any gluten?! That's like saying an orange rind doesn't have any vitamin C. All I can say is that if it works for you, go for it but I wouldn't be recommending it to a Celiac sufferer.
He willnot go get a drink, he knows that bartenders put straws in drinks and those straws are touched by gluteny hands and its like he is embarrassed he has celiac he wont tell them to not put a straw in it, he will not get coffee because of a similar situation and also alot of coffee syrups have caramel coloring and that makes him sick, and I think it is what someone on hear said previously its a lack of effort. I always want to do things and he either is to tired from work or just doesnt want to go. How do I get him out of his celiafunk?
You know what's in plastic? PLASTIC! You want to go to the bar and get a drink but he's worried about gluten hands touching the straw? Easy fix.............................. bring his own. Better yet, go get one of those "Krazy Straws" and bring it with him. He'll be the life of the party. Hell, I'd probably buy a round just to watch.
Coffee is over rated. It keeps you awake sometimes, makes you jumpy (like the stressed out dwarf) and stains your teeth. Just kidding, I drink about 4 gallons a week and there is nothing wrong with me.
Wow, slow down a bit. First let me say that I don't but my wife does. It is possible to coexist and still live normal (someone needs to define that word) life. Your boyfriend needs to be searching for gluten-free places to eat or you can do it. He needs to put together a "go bag" with snacks, drinks and gluten-free stuff that he can bring along on road trips. We travel quite a bit and she hasn't starved yet. For long trips, pack a cooler for him.
As for the home, that takes a bit more control. Get rid of or seperate anything that may be CC. Ie, plastic containers, wooden utensils and anything porous. Glass and stainless or NEW plastics are your friends. Most of the gluten-free foods we prepare are just as good as those with gluten. On pasta nights, she makes hers then makes mine. Not that much trouble cuz we still share the same sauces. She has her own breads and lunchmeat and I have mine. The big thing is to have a spot in the kitchen where you can prep stuff and have a seperate cutting board and utensils. I kept the old nonstick pans for my use along with the o lol d wooden stuff. Clean up your area when done and remember to wash your hands.
Trust me, it's doable. I haven't killed her yet. I have zapped her a couple times early on (sorry sweetheart) but I'm getting better at paying attention to what I'm doing and how it may affect her. I get upset at times but it's at me for being stupid and noy thinking.
Just saying, don't give up yet, there's lots of support right here.
My boyfriend and I had a heart to heart last night. He is gluten free; I, technically, am not.
Here are some of the details: We talked about how I eat gluten-free when I don't need to. He mentioned that I actually enjoy it, which I do, because I feel like I'm "closer" to him that way. My main reason for that, I think, is because I can enjoy meals with him when otherwise I can't. But all he sees in this "act of love" is that I'm making him weak and vulnerable, more so than he apparently already feels.
I just don't know what to do... Does anybody have any advice? Am I right? Wrong? Is there even a right/wrong to this?
(I really hope that mess of a paragraph makes sense.)
I don't think that you're the one making him feel weak and volnerable, I think he's the one doing it to himself.
I think it's nice of you to eat gluten free with him when you don't have to. We both generally eat gluten free except on pasta nights. My darling wifey will make me my own seperate pasta after she makes hers. We use the same sauces. It not a big deal.
If you want to eat gluten in front of him, then eat the gluten. If you're good with going free, that's even better and it's his bad if he has a problem with it. Tell him to shut up and eat his dinner.
My wife has celiac, I do not. For the most part I eat what she eats as far as meals go. We cook together and I have learned the do's and don'ts. But, just because there are foods that she can't eat and I can (and enjoy), doesn't mean that I have to go without. I still have my sammiches on gluten bread and keep my favorite adult malt beverage on hand. I travel for a living so I am able to get things when I'm away. If I desire something at home, I have my own cookware. I keep to one area in the kitchen and I CLEAN UP when done. It is is possible to co-exist but it is nice of him to adjust for you.
As to the health issue of a non celiac going gluten free, I can't really see any health issues that would occur.
