#938968 Girl Scouts Rolls Out 3 New Gluten Free Cookies

Posted by on 24 January 2015 - 07:17 PM

I got my gluten-free cookies!  I picked up four bags of the trios cookies... they are really good.  Those are the oatmeal peanut butter chocolate chip ones.  Soft and very good.  They only have oats in them, no other gluten-free flours. I want to try and get a hold of the toffee tastic ones, I had someone tell me they are like pecan sandies, which are a cookie I miss dearly.

#938613 Do Your Pets Eat Gluten Free?

Posted by on 18 January 2015 - 06:35 PM

My SO plans on bringing his kitty over from Germany. It is currently living with his parents. We will be feeding her Royal Canin. His father is a Veterinarian and is the lead guy for RC in Germany so I am given NO SAY in the food his kitty will eat. hahaha  I will be getting a kitten soon too and I refuse to pay the price tag on RC so I was looking at Blue  Freedom as they have a grain free variety. I really wish I could convince my SO to get his kitty grain free too. That way the kitties can BOTH be around me and I will never worry about it. If we have a child together, I will demand it if the baby turns up Celiac though.

The gluten-free version of Blue is around the same price as Royal Canin.   My cat now eats the Royal Canin Feline Urinary SO prescription food, it helps with her urinary tract problems.  The regular one is gluten-free, the lower calorie one has wheat gluten as a top ingredient, so we just make sure to be strict on portion control.  We fed her Blue before, she liked it a lot.  The can version of her RX food is gluten-free as well, we feed her those sparingly as a treat when we have to mess with her to clean her and such.


I feed her gluten-free because I keep the food in my kitchen, she licks herself, I pet her, etc.  I am sure the risk of transmission and issues is very low, but it is worth the peace of mind for me to make sure her food is gluten-free.


We do occasionally give her greenies which are not gluten-free.  They work wonders on that bad cat breath!

#937988 Celiac For 1 Year, Having Trouble Eating Almost Anything For The Last Month

Posted by on 07 January 2015 - 12:17 AM

Did you do any other tests?

Maybe stay away from vegetable oil, soy, cornstarch.  Gluten allergies can turn into multiple alllergies.

Celiac disease is not a gluten allergy. As you are new to the forum, please feel free to read around and check out http://www.curecelia...th-celiac/guide for scientifically accurate information.

#937971 Do You Guys Change Your Toothbrushes After Accidentally Eating Gluten?

Posted by on 06 January 2015 - 04:07 PM

I always keep extra toothbrushes on hand for after someone is sick, etc.  If I ate a large amount of gluten and used it after, yes I would toss it.

Ghirardelli is a good choice (they have shared equipment but great practices to clean lines in between), and my favorite is See's Candy, of which everything is now gluten-free.  They are a bit pricey, though.

#933591 Celiac And Continual Gluten Consumption?

Posted by on 27 October 2014 - 10:36 PM

I met a lady who had a lot of health problems, multiple autoimmune issues and had just had a bout with cancer.  A while after meeting her she nonchalantly tells me she was diagnosed with Celiac disease 10 years ago, but just never went gluten-free, and maybe she will do it now.  I thought inside my head for a few seconds and decided I would just respond to her with complete kindness and not criticize her, let her know that there are a ton of risks and it is probably affecting her more than she knows, and offered to go to her house and do grocery shopping and such with her.  I hope she does, but with someone like that, you just can't force someone, just educate and hope for the best.  Sadly, with the age of easily accessible information on the internet, much of that is wrong, and many people will believe what they want to because they want it to be, as with the Italian wheat thing.  Italy has it's fare share of Celiacs, but people won't believe what they don't want to sometimes.  Same thing happens with morbidly obese people after  they have heart issues, diabetics who still eat an uncontrolled diet against what is needed... some people just will not take care of themselves.  A very sad thing to watch, indeed.

#930169 New Here And Need Help With School Policy

Posted by on 09 September 2014 - 05:20 PM

Okay guys, let's please reign this in here.  Back to the original question.


Happyplace, Unless it has been totally shot down, I would open conversation with the school administration back up.  You may be able to ask for your child to be sat away from the peanut allergic child(ren) and while you won't blatantly send nut items there, not worry about shared facilities, etc.  Bottom line is you can't let your kiddo starve and have a non-balanced diet and there has to be a better solution that can be reached with more understanding of everyone's needs.

#929813 Test Results Help

Posted by on 06 September 2014 - 10:51 PM

Welcome to the forum, Boncarlos2!


If you have the actual copy of the lab report, can you post exactly what it says?  I don't want to throw out a guess right now because some of the decimal points are not making sense.  I want to get you accurate info.

#926236 Stop Eating Bread

Posted by on 03 August 2014 - 11:47 AM

There are gluten-free rice krispies! :)  They are made with brown rice so they have a slightly different flavor, but pretty much the same.  I want to say they are in a tan colored box, I see them at most stores I go to.

#924403 Most Ridiculous Gluten Comment I've Heard

Posted by on 18 July 2014 - 06:47 PM

Actually, if you bring the grill to 600F or higher, and hold it there for 30 minutes, it will destroy the proteins on the grill. But if you have anything on the grill while you do that, it will no longer be edible. The clean cycle of a self-cleaning oven will do the same thing, burning off any gluten. FWIW.

Thats correct! 


At a restaurant one time I asked if there was a shared fryer, the nice girl there said yes, and even though a lady told her one time that she is a nurse and the hot oil burns off the gluten, she doesn't think it is safe.  I commended her for having some sense, and then told her that.  At the end I added, "Since the smoke point of the frying oil is well under 600 degrees, the gluten would only go away if the restaurant burned down."  Got a laugh out of that.  She still works there and I try to go on the days I know she usually works.   :)



Edit: Bad grammar

Posted by on 14 July 2014 - 12:38 PM

If you have a verifiable bacteria that needs to be killed, please for your and public health interests, take the antibiotic.  It takes strong stuff to kill nasty germs like that, but you don't want that hanging around any longer than it has to.
