#783926 What Are Some Kid-Friendly Substitutes For

Posted by kbtoyssni on 29 March 2012 - 09:54 AM

You could try using creamed corn instead of cheese on tacos. It gives that additional texture and flavor you're missing when you don't use cheese. I've been doing this for a few years now as I've worked to cut down on the amount of dairy I consume, and it's delicious.

#652382 Crying Over Chicken!

I always check my take-out orders before I leave the restaurant to make sure they're correct. There's no way I want to risk getting all the way home with the wrong food.

#387991 How Does Everyone Feel When They Cheat?

Posted by kbtoyssni on 22 January 2008 - 10:25 AM

I don't cheat. My life was so miserable pre-diagnosis that there is no way I would purposely eat gluten. Even if you don't get an outward reaction, you're still doing damage and setting yourself up for a major health issues down the road.

#349602 I Just Know He Has Celiac!

Posted by kbtoyssni on 05 October 2007 - 06:09 AM

The "stereotypical" celiac is underweight due to malnourishment, but many celiacs are actually overweight. One theory is that if you're not absorbing enough food, your body is in starvation mode so your metabolism plummets and you hold on to everything.

Blood tests commonly give false negatives.

And I also think it's common for one or two gluten foods to make celiacs sick while other ones don't appear to cause symptoms. Just like your daughter and the sub sandwiches, I had the same thing with pizza. I could eat several slices of bread and feel fine but pizza always gave me stomach problems.

Since you are on a tight budget, I'd recommend just trying the diet rather than pursuing more medical testing.
