Topics I've Started

Glutened-Little Vent

04 December 2014 - 08:11 AM

I've been strictly gluten-free since March 2013 and to my knowledge have only been glutened three times.  Unfortunately I'm still feeling the effects of the third one.  I can't pinpoint it exactly, but I think it either came from Thanksgiving dinner or Black Friday lunch out.  

 

In general I have delayed reactions.  I read about people knowing they've had gluten within a half hour, but that's usually not my case.  Instead on Sunday morning I woke up with a killer hangover except I hadn't had a single thing to drink, and I've woken up with one each morning, but thankfully they've been reducing in intensity.  I've had periods of brain fog, kidney pain and the dreaded C so I took some magnesium.  My intestinal area is so tender.  Drinking large amounts of water only makes me feel more bloated even though that's what I've been doing since that's what suggested.  I feel huge even though the scale only says a three pound gain.  I know the effects are being enhanced because it's that time of the month too, but I also know that so many of these things have not been happening monthly, and that most of it is from the glutening.  I ended up taking the day off from work, which I never do, but my body just needed the rest.  I can't believe I used to live like this daily, and think it was all normal.  Thanks for letting me vent, and now it's time to go back to sleep.  This too shall pass...


I Love Wawa!

15 November 2014 - 06:56 AM

so living in the northern Delaware/Philly area, Wawa convenience stores are all around!  They really stock some great on the go things for the gluten-free crowd.  They've started carrying Krave jerky and Wai Lana yucca chips.  My favorite flavors are the black cherry pork bbq for the jerky, and the herb and garlic for the Wai Lana chips.  Maybe two months back I sent them a nice e-mail letting them know I appreciated that they carried these products and other products that were convenient for those of us with celiac disease/NCGS, and then they sent me a small gift card for my positive comments.  That was something I wasn't expected, but it made their value go up even higher.  Their restrooms are always clean, so I know I can wash my hands before eating whatever I buy.  I promise I'm not a Wawa spokesperson, but my friends tell me I should be along with Wegmans because I love Wegmans too  :D


Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple

18 October 2014 - 04:28 AM

Angry Orchard has a seasonal flavor called Cinnful Apple, which is a cinnamon apple tasting cider.  It is delicious, and my favorite kind of alcohol because it doesn't taste like alcohol.  I highly suggest it!


Functional And Metabolic Disorders In Celiac Disease: New Implications For Nutritional...

09 September 2014 - 02:42 AM

I found this article an interesting read:  http://online.lieber...9/jmf.2014.0025

 

The writers compiled important points from forty-nine different papers for this article.  I recently had my nutritional levels tested again, and there was a 300 point drop in my B-12 level, but then I read this:

 

"A condition of pancreatic insufficiency can also contribute to lower serum Vitamin B-12 levels, since proteases are necessary to separate B-12 from salivary R-protein, in the upper intestine tract, and to allow the binding with stomach intrinsic factor."

 

 


Jason Certified gluten-free Facial Products

31 July 2014 - 04:48 AM

So I've got to say I love when companies take the guess work out of things  :)  I went to Whole Foods the other day, and they started carrying the new Jason line of certified gluten-free facial products, which are also fragrance free.  Here's a link to the line: http://www.jason-per...gluten-free-new

 

The line was available at the Whole Foods in Glen Mills, PA.
