:)

Information about this test can be obtained from the one laboratory that presently offers it, Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratory in Asheville, NC. Their number is 1-800-522-4762.


Thanks Claire,

I was wondering a few post back , on who is doing the test. Does this have to be physician ordered?

<_< Thanks for all the replies everybody. I kinda think Stephanie is onto something

We were at the Grocery Outlet (it's a store) the other day and they had a Snickers Fun Pack, that had about 6 different kinds of candy bar that company makes, including Milky Way Dark

.

I checked out mmmars.com and they do have 2 other candy bars Snickers Krispies and another type (can't remember what it was-it is on their website) that do have gluten in them from barley malt. So I emailed and asked if cross contamination can be an issue (are all these products made in the same facility) and could there be a problem with the multi packs, where the fun size Snicker bars are mixed with the other candy bars that have gluten in them.

I will post the response when I get it. Not everybody has an issue being so sensitive to cross contamination but I am one of the unlucky ones, and it seems to get worse the longer I am gluten free. :angry:

Berneses - Sorry to hear about you being Glutened by Amy's Kitchen Shepherds Pie. Haven't tried that one, just her Mac -n-Cheese, (which I always have stocked for those I don't feel like cooking nights). That is amazing they are testing their food now. I sure wish we had a way to check it out for ourselfs. (Oh great, now I am advocating we all become chemist-to try and figure out what we are eating!)

:P Tiffany,

Thanks for all the recipes, not only gluten free, but healthy!!! It is so easy to still be gluten free and eating a totally unhealthy diet. I am trying to push more of the raw and just whole food ingredients. But, I also have a massive sweet tooth. I loooovvved your raw brownie recipe, it is delicious!!! I ignored your part about using a food processor and of course burnt out my blender, but it was a good excuse to finally get a real food processor. :D


Thanks,

Bette

High-Protein Torte

Okay I must admit since it has pumpkin in this, you would think of it as more seasonal, but I like this so much I make it year round. It is a recipe that I had and was making long before going gluten free, just because it is high fiber and high protein. Who new something that taste so gooood, could be good for you too!

1 19-ounce can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), rinsed (or 2 cups cooked)
4 eggs (or I cup egg subsitute)
1 15-ounce can pumpkin
1 cup Slpenda(I am not a fan of splenda so I just use 1 cup sugar
2 TBS maple syrup
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsps pumpkin pie spice
6 ounces whipped cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
1 11-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained
1/4 cup walnut halves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a blender or food processor, combine chickpeas and eggs until smooth. Add pumpkin, sugar, syrup, baking powder and spice;process again until smooth.
Spray a round cake pan with oil. Fill with batter. Bake until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 60 minutes. Cool (Be sure the cake is completely cool before removing from the it from the pan, because it is very soft-like cheesecake)
Combine whipped cream cheese and powdered sugar . Spread over top and sides of cake. Decorate with mandarin oranges and walnuts. Serves 8 :P

[/QUOTE]I think it was contaminated buckwheat.[QUOTE]

Cornbread I also react to buckwheat. I have tried the brand Arrowhead Mills twice now and got real sick both times (my daughter also, but her reaction is over in a day or 2, mine took more than 2 weeks both times). I loved the stuff too, on the package it states gluten free. What brand did you use? I suspect there might be some contamination issues going on.
