Gluten Free Vegan?

22 September 2012 - 05:48 PM

are there any other gluten free vegans out there? do you find it a struggle? I know I do. of course there are a lot of foods that can be eaten.. but I still struggle with it every day!

lately I've been drinking a lot of smoothies. I make them nutrient and calorie dense of course. I'm just wondering (being new to gluten-free) whether any gluten-free/celiac vegans could offer me some advice about how you make it work?

thanks :)

Face, Hair, And Body Care

31 August 2012 - 12:07 PM

This information is all current as of August 31, 2012.

Gluten Free Bath Products!

- Neutrogena (cross contamination possible; they have face and body lines, as well as cosmetics in the USA)
- Live Clean (dedicated facility free of gluten; also free of parabens, sls, and naturally derived. They have hair care, facial products, and body washes)
- Organix (natural hair care line; no products contain gluten)
- Dove (not all products are gluten free, but gluten sources are clearly labelled)

Anyone else having current up to date info on bath and beauty products? It's sad how hard the information can be to track down

I Contacted J&j By Email About Neutrogena...

I sent an email to Johnson and Johnson, asking them which, if any, Neutrogena skin care products were gluten free.

Here was their reply;

Just in case anyone was wondering :) I've been wanting to try the grapefruit based scrub and cleanser, so I decided to contact them.

99.9% Certain, Though Undiagnosed

29 August 2012 - 10:35 PM

Hi everyone :) I'm new to the forum (I didn't notice an introduction board, did I miss it?). My name is Kim, I'm 21, and I've suffered symptoms of celiac for years. I've had digestive issues the most commonly (constipation, bloating, abdominal pain), as well as headaches, fatigue, poor skin. Most recently I've developed a skin rash that looks suspiciously like Dermatitis Herpetiformis. I've been to the doctor twice. He says it's an allergy, but for some reason just prescribed me a second round of antibiotics. But, I digress..

I was just wondering, is anyone else undiagnosed?

I've decided to remove gluten from my diet 100 percent for the next 4 weeks. Then, I'll try eating something containing gluten and see how I react.. If it's bad, that's enough of a diagnosis for me. I don't see the sense of having a scope or more blood tests to prove it! This is my personal opinion. I'm just wondering if anyone else is "self diagnosed" so to speak.
