#933278 Mushy Bread? Problem Solved!

Posted by maximoo on 23 October 2014 - 09:19 AM

to prevent  bread slices (such as udi's/Rudi's, etc) from being mushy/damp when microwaving, DO NOT lay bread flat in the microwave. The bread needs to stand up to let the steam evaporate. When the bread lays on a plate the steam becomes trapped making the bread mushy. Lean the bread against a cup or something on a plate, while microwaving. try not overheat abt 30 sec is good (give or take a few sec). Let it cool for a mt n Voila! soft bread! not mushy or damp! 

 

Do this for any bread or buns (gluten-free or not)

#860383 gluten-free Wraps

Posted by maximoo on 24 March 2013 - 02:36 PM

I discovered gluten-free wraps made by a co called "Goodbye Gluten"  I was actually at an Entenmann's outlet buying a glutenous treat for me ( I don't have celiac) and there it was!  gluten-free Wraps!! in original & multigrain. There are 6 in a pack & it costs $2! yes $2!! I bought a pk for my kids & they like it.  I tasted it too & they are pretty decent.  They do crumble a bit but that's ok for the price & that they are gluten-free.  I'm sure they cost more in any other store as this was an outlet. Unfortunately I don't know if I can get them there again, but if I do I'll get a few packs to freeze.

#823739 Failed University

Posted by maximoo on 15 September 2012 - 01:22 PM

My 18 yo son who was dx'd with pdd-nos (at age 6) just started classes at the local college. He drives 2 dys a week & works 4 dys a week. So he is considered high functioning obviously but I did not feel he was ready to go to a residential college as his planning , handling ppl on the ph (bureaucracy) & daily living skills still need improvement. He also showed antibodies for celiac last yr so is gluten free.

What I want to ask you tho is this if you don't mind: You said your autism is cured. How do you know you are cured? As far as I know autism is not a curable thing. What were your issues that you no longer have? Is it that you now know how to cope/compensate that convinces you that you are cured? People with autism have a unique way of looking at things & have many talents (some unusual). Why would you even want to cure it as it makes you who YOU are? Certainly I am not speaking of the severely affected low functioning non verbal ppl, but generally for high functioning ppl I don't see anything that is wrong with having autism or that it needs a cure. From what you wrote I can tell you are very high functioning & are independent enough to attend university. Also since you were approved for disability services for autism the Australian gov't doesn't think autism can be cured (to your advantage in your situation) My son receives services from our state govt (FL) even tho he works & goes to school which cannot be said of many 'typical' teens these days. (my nephew is typical & just got outta jail! after 4 yrs!) I would rather have 10 sons with autism than 1 typical one. My son doesn't lie, steal, cheat, call ppl names, stab them in the back, do drugs, or break the law.
I do think you are amazing! I see nothing but good things for you. A few attributes of a person with autism is that they are honest, say what they think, & are not pretentious or flaky & can think out of the box. I am simply curious as to why you say you are cured.

#780736 Growing After Gluten Free Diet...is It Too Late?

Posted by maximoo on 14 March 2012 - 08:47 PM

It depends on what stage of puberty you are in. Stage 5 the last stage when chest hair, full beard etc are in full bloom. Boys complete stage 5 @ different ages up to age 21. But if you really want to know you will need a bone age xray to see if your growth plates are fused.

#769685 Help Please? 13 Year Old Son Sneaking Wheat!

Posted by maximoo on 31 January 2012 - 06:53 AM

My 13 yo & 17 yo always text me if they are unsure if something has gluten when they are out with friends or something. I am lucky in that respect. It's a non embarrassing way for them to make sure they don't eat something they shouldn't even tho they have no gastro symptoms. If ur son is unsure he cld text u & his friends would nvr know. Also he can keep a short list of gluten-free snacks/foods in his phone or ipod (if he has one).

#768863 WW II Every Night At Dinner

Posted by maximoo on 27 January 2012 - 05:40 PM

Is it possible that your anxiety & frustration is upsetting her? You cannot show her how annoyed you get when she doesn't eat. Can she or will she drink a milkshake? sry I don't know if she can have dairy. Also be sure to give her a daily gluten-free multivitamin.

Make a list of the things she used to eat, & make or buy a gluten-free version. Try the idea above one spoon of food, one spoon of coco pebbles--eventually two spoons food, 1 pebbles & so on.

Good Luck!

#766350 Dr. Oz Today Is gluten-free Stuff

Posted by maximoo on 19 January 2012 - 01:04 PM

Dr Oz barely scratches the surface with many of the subjects he discusses. He talks too fast & jumps from 1 subject to the next w/o fully covering the previous subject.I guess with a 1 hr show & 20-25 of those mt are spent in commercials he has to squeeze everything in in the time allotted. I generally do like him but he should stick to 1 subject per show to give the viewer the most info.

#765598 Plain & Simple "it Messes Me Up!"

Posted by maximoo on 17 January 2012 - 10:54 AM

My DD (13) was hanging with her god brother (23) the other day at the mall & he offered to buy her an auntie anne's pretzel ( her favorite!!) & she declined saying she can't eat wheat. "Why? Does it mess you up?" :blink: Exactly! She then admitted to me she didn't know what to say to ppl who offered her glutenous food. Her god brother provided the answer "It messes me up!" That's her new mantra.

We do not have that phrase legally protected so everybody feel free to use it. :rolleyes: ;)

#763995 Medical Card

Posted by maximoo on 11 January 2012 - 07:01 AM

marijuana will only stunt ur emotional/intellectual development and not cure you of any other symptoms--just temporarily cover them up while damaging your brain cells.

My bro started smoking pot at age 13 & now he's a 50 yo man with the mind/emotional maturity of a 13 yo. no wife, no money, no kids, just lives minute to minute stoned.

are you eating gluten-free? if so for how long? The pain may eventually subside. It often does.If you can't sleep get a sleep study done . They will determine why you can't sleep (if its physical like apnea) How is ur mattress?--perhaps its not right for you & you may need a new one. For anxiety take yoga, & learn how to relax, exercise helps too--swimming, aerobics, weightlifting, dancing, whatever you like. Perhaps some short term counseling for your anxiety will help you learn to solve problems rather than getting anxious & fearful about them.

You see there are many ways to deal with what you are going thru in a constructive positive way rather than being stoned on pot.--legally or not.

Please get the proper help that you need--I assure you medical marijuana is not the answer.
