Crispy Breading Substitute?

08 March 2013 - 01:14 PM

I would  like to make my own chicken tenders.  I usually used ww flour with cornmeal and spices. what would be a good sub for the ww flour?  I have coconut flour and almond flour, would one of those work?


Grain Eating Animals?

So I went to the health food store  to stock up on some gluten-free snacks today. The lady working there told me that I should only buy grass-fed beef, as the grains that the regular steer eat will gluten me.  Any logic to this? i did have regular steak the other night with no effects.


Oh No Not Soy Too?

06 March 2013 - 01:24 PM

I got sick a little while after breakfast this morning, nausea and vomited once.  I made a breakfast sammie with an Udi's bagel, Boar's Head Horseradish cheddar, one egg, and a couple of those Jimmy Dean frozen pre-cooked sausage patties.  The sausage ingredients seemed fine, the only suspicious thing is soy protein.  Could I be sensitive to that as well? Or maybe it could be the cheese, probably should lay off the dairy,  but never had a problem with it before.  I'm so confused!!

 

Perhaps keeping a food journal from now on would be of benefit.

So, been reading about how I also need to avoid gluten in my shampoo/conditioner, lotions, etc.  Is Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein safe, or is that gluten?  It's so confusing!!!


Thinking I Might Have Celiac

03 March 2013 - 08:58 AM

Hello:)

 

I am a type 2 Diabetic on medication and diet/exercise regimen.  Recently I started feeling nauseous and even vomited a few times, always after eating something with gluten in it.I have also been having a hard time controlling my blood sugar and have been craving bad things like Italian bread, cookies, and cake, EEEEK!!   For the past 8 years or so, I have had terrible bloating, gas, alternating diahrreah and constipation with stomach cramping. Also joint pain, fatigue, foggy brain. I had several surgeries during that time and feel that might have triggered the Celiac, and that in turn may have contributed to the Diabetes. So I started thinking after seeing something about Celiac on TV (I KNOW, sounds hypochondriac-ish, lol) that I would eliminate gluten from my diet.  It's been 3 days only, and I already feel much better and hope to improve every day until I feel human again!

 

Anyway, I haven't been formally diagnosed and since I don't have health insurance, doubt I'll have the funds to do so.  I already spend a lot of money on meds and supplements (all gluten-free, I checked) for the diabetes and other issues.  Is it completely necessary to obtain a formal diagnosis, if I am showing marked improvement with diet? There really doesn't seem to be any other medical treatment for Celiac besides eliminating Gluten.  Any advice for a newbie?
