I usually eat the 85% Lindt chocolate bars as my sweet treat for the day (a piece of the bar, not the whole thing!). Recently the stores where I live (Japan) are not carrying it! I have tried others but I don't like them or they state produced in factories with wheat. Today I decided to try to make my own using cocoa powder, coconut oil, sugar and vanilla. It was something I found online. It turned out surprisingly good but a bit "grainy" from the sugar. Has anyone made their own chocolate or have any tried and true recipes????
I have been gluten-free since Feb. I live overseas and will be visiting Calfornia for Xmas. I'm from CA originally but I haven't been to the US since going gluten-free. During my trip I will have a couple of nights in a hotel. I am specifically choosing ones that have microwaves and fridges. However, I also would like to enjoy food I can't get where I live. So, do I go for it and try some restuarants like Chipolte, Outback Steakhouse, etc. OR should I play it safe and buy food from the supermarket and only eat what I fix? I realize this is a decision only I can make! However, I just wonder what experiences others have had regarding restaurants. I only have 10 days in the US and I want to enjoy food I can't eat where I live, but I don't want to waste any days being sick!!!!
I've been gluten free since Feb. this year. I am learning that when I accidentally get some gluten my first symptom is a killer headache. Does anyone else get headaches and is there a recommended OTC medication you use?
The past two weeks or so I have been waking up in a complete panic due to dreams where I eat gluten. In the one last night I was holding something. I began to nibble on it then I realized it was bread. I got all freaked out that I was eating bread. Then I woke up! Does anyone else ever dream they are eating gluten foods? I am almost 6 months gluten free.
