I'll have to check this book out.

In Topic: Instant Behavior Change In Son After Going Gluten Free.

I wish there was more research out there on this topic.  It just seems too unlikely that these changes in his behavior could just have happened at the exact moment we made this change.

I just ordered some Almond Flour so that I can try making that pizza dough!  Looks awesome in the picture!  I just wish almond flour was a little cheaper.

Thanks for the recommendation!


I just saw her almond/ flax vegan pizza dough on FB. Not all her recipes are vegan, but many are.


In Topic: Do gluten-free Flours Really Need To Be Refrigerated?

17 February 2013 - 05:54 AM

I've never put any of my flours in the fridge, but then again I've always ignored that my peanut butter jar says to put it in the fridge too. Though, I agree that soy flour is just not worth having since it does seem to go rancid quickly (and then subsequently ruins what ever you accidentally put it in). But, unless you are planning to take several months to use a certain flour, I wouldn't worry to much. But since most gluten-free flours comes in such small quanities, it usually isn't a problem. That was one of the hardest things to adjust to about going gluten free. I was used to paying $15 for a 50 pound bag of whole wheat flour. And now it cost $10 for a less than 2 pound bag of Quinoa flour.

In Topic: Anyone Else Have Allergies To Cat And Dust Disappear After Giving Up Gluten?

16 February 2013 - 07:36 PM

I was actually skin prick tested for my allergies about a week before I went gluten free completely. So, it seems a bit too coincidental to think that the allergies happened to disappear right after being tested and at the same time I gave up gluten. Also, the few times I've done 'gluten tests' (aka torture myself to see if gluten really does affect me negatively by eating some - never much fun) my allergies come back (in addition to that darn basketball that grows in my stomach everytime I eat gluten). So, I'm glad to hear at least one other person had this experience!

Yes! I had allergy skin prick testing several years before I was diagnosed with Celiac. Those showed I was allergic to dust mites and cats.

Fast forward to about a year into my diagnosis, and repeat testing (I was this time being tested for foods, but they also did a full panel of testing).
Nothing showed up-- no foods or dust or cats.

Now, I had a cat in the house both times-- the same cat for 18 years so possibly my system adjusted? I know allergies can come and go throughout a lifetime, but I thought I'd throw my experience out there.
