i too went thru the same thing with my husband. i had to just make meals that were gluten free. Then let him eat it and then say...well that was a dish you enjoyed and it was gluten free. just to prove to him that he still enjoy things he loved to eat. just we need to find gluten free ingrediants to make them. the life safer for me was http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/ seeing im a working mom. I did not have time to make two seperate things for every meal.
THanks for the Welcome Pondy! Yes there are supposed to be quite a few places in Madison. I have been referred to the "Silly Yak" bakery...isnt that a great name? I am about 25 minutes from East Towne Mall East of Lake Mills. I would certainly welcome a copilot going to Madison! I seem to always get turned around finding new places...although I am getting much better in that town now that my daughter goes to the University there! Terri O
hello all i just found this thread. Im from Fort Atkinson between Milwaukee and Madison. Travel mostly to Milwaukee area. I would love to found out any tips you all might have in these areas. I have found it hard in my little town not having much for me to purchase.
Thanks for all the helpful insight. I have been doing so much research that my head feels like its spinning sometimes. When we went to the nutrients she made it sound like we were DOOMED to function as a family due to this. She made it sound impossible to go shopping in a typical store and so on. But after some good reasearch on my own I have found it to be ok. Its frustrating to find a place to go out to eat in our little area.
yeah I have learned about the assuming issue already. I bought some ganola bars that said 100% organic Oats and there was NO LISTING FOR WHEAT OR CROSS warning. I called the company once I found there info on line because no number on the box to call from store and he informed me that if my husband had mild celiac hed be ok; if sensitive he would be adviced not to eat them. I rolled my eyes in frustration and hand them to my non celiac kids.
Since you are new to the whole gluten-free thing. I just discovered Stephanie O'Dea. She made 365 gluten-free dishes in her crock pot! We have tried a few recipes and enjoyed them. She gives a verdict at the end as part of her review.
