In Topic: Nutritionist Wwyd

Today, 01:28 AM

Hubby reminded me of the appointment that we were both required to attend before they would release me from hospital (granted it was several decades ago). During it, the nutritionist actually suggested that if I needed to "drop a few pounds", I could eat gluten for a week. Many of her clients used that "trick" to lose weight. And I should consider myself "lucky" to have such an easy way to lose weight.

 

Maybe that should be in a "Horror Stories" type category.

 

What..... the......  whatt.......  wow. Wow.  Definitely a horror story.


In Topic: What Are You Eating For The Super Bowl?

I've been hungry for bacon wrapped little smokies smothered in bbq sauce.  Believe me, that is NOTHING that I would've ever wanted before celiac diagnosis.  Is it even possible?   Do they make those little sausages that are gluten free?   

Yes those hillshire farms little smokies that arlene linked are gluten-free! :D  I will get those and make pigs in a blanket with them, using the King Arthur Flour gluten-free biscuit recipe.  I am sure wrapped in bacon is totally delicious as well!! Now I want sausages in bacon.  May have to pick some up, LOL

I'm planning on skipping SB and going to the gym instead. That removes the problem of what to serve.

 

Yes, the opposite of what I am going to do... fatten myself up.  LOL

You might want to subscribe to the Gluten Free Watchdog. It's $4.99 per month. 

https://www.glutenfreewatchdog.org

 

They test 8 products per month. You get a notification in your inbox each time a product is tested -- they do 2 products at the time. Just this month a Rolled Oats product labeled gluten free tested well above 20 ppm of gluten. 

 

This is a great site, I am glad I signed up with them.  I highly recommend them.  They also have some great informative articles that can really deepen your understanding of things like gluten contamination in food processes, etc.

There is another website which is older & more established. it also has more information imo, being that it has reviews by people who have eaten there.

http://www.findmeglutenfree.com

 

I feel this is the best site for finding Celiac-Friendly dining.  I leave reviews on it, good or bad, so others can know.  Some places will have multiple reviews letting others know it is not safe for Celiacs, and I will know to steer clear.
