Topics I've Started

Best Introductory Books

05 November 2011 - 04:31 PM

I have some relatives that are interested in trying out the gluten free diet to see if it resolves some of their health issues. What books do you suggest for learning about what gluten is and how to eat gluten free? The simpler the better for now, until they get their feet wet.

Help Me With Quinoa

05 October 2011 - 06:08 AM

I want to love quinoa. I really do. I love the idea of a high protein grain and something different than the norm. I have a wide palate typically and dint hesitate to buy 10 lbs of good quality organic quinoa when it went on sale.

However, I just haven't found a way to like it yet. I tried a breakfast recipe, cooked in broth (not too bad), and then toasted it and cooked like rice (yuck, tasted burnt). I am typically a pretty good cook and love new ingredients and recipes.

So, help me love quinoa. Tell me how to cook it so we enjoy it. Give me good recipes. I love quinoa pasta too, just not the smelly flour and grain itself.

Whiskey, Vodka, Gin?

I am perusing "The Gluten-Free Bible" and it indicates that a gluten-free person cannot have "alcoholic beverages made from cereal grains such as whiskey, vodka, gin ..." Is that accurate?

When To Trial Other Food Intolerances?

23 September 2011 - 05:16 PM

I became Gluten-free Casein-free after getting positive IgG bloodwork back in May. I followed that up with IgA testing from Enterolab that confirmed positives for gluten and casein, and also showed positives for egg and soy. My primary symptoms are chronic fatigue, random body pains, brain fog, and memory issues. After 3 months eliminating gluten and casein and 1 month eliminating soy and egg, the chronic fatigue suddenly lifted. I feel like the brain fog is better too, but still have the other symptoms.

As of now, it has been about 2.5 months without soy and egg. How do I know when the appropriate time is to trial those foods back into my diet? I've read that it can be a year or two for neurological type symptoms to go away, so I'm hesitant to wait that long. Soy doesn't really matter to me, but egg removal has been a bit of a pain.

Direct Link To Mobile Site?

20 August 2011 - 10:02 AM

Is there a way to directly get to the mobile site for these forums? I upgraded the operating system on my smartphone, and now it no longer recognizes my browser as a mobile one. It worked great before that, with the mobile site being so easy to navigate. It is so cumbersome to try to see the full site on a tiny screen. I tried m.celiac.com, but to no avail.
