Topics I've Started

Multivitamin With No Or Low Calcium.

01 March 2015 - 07:48 PM

So my latest blood results from my Lupus doctor showed I have slightly high calcium(10.6 with a normal range of 8.6-10.4 mg/dL) and he wants me to stop getting extra calcium.  Given my Celiac disease, I want to keep supplementing with a well rounded multi-vitamin, preferably one that has iron given that I am a female.  

I have been taking the store brand of the One A Day Womens, which contains 500mg of Calcium Carbonate, 50% of daily value.  I have a lot of medical costs, so would highly prefer having it all in one pill as that will cost less than taking tons of vitamins separately.  Just looking online, the closest, most complete one I can find is this one, with only 100mg of Calcium Carbonate.  Any recommendations?  gluten-free, of course :)

What Are You Eating For The Super Bowl?

28 January 2015 - 03:42 PM

What is everyone planning on eating for super bowl watching snacks?  I am not a big football person, but I do watch the game and the commercials.  My husband suggested we break out the deep fryer and make fried chicken tenders and fried pickles since it has been a while, and I agreed that is a great idea.  Yum Yum!  Hopefully we can leave some ideas here to inspire our people new to gluten-free and Celiac life.


I marinate my chicken tenders in buttermilk, sriracha, and spices.  Then coat in gluten-free bisquik, and fry.  Really nice to have something like that since I definitely can't go through a drive through and get it like the old days.



Fiorucci Foods (Italian Deli Meats)

21 June 2014 - 10:03 PM

I recently picked up some Fiorucci pepperoni paninos at the store, they are little sticks of Mozzarella wrapped in pepperoni, pretty good.  The label looked okay, but I wrote them asking the gluten-free status of their products and got a reply  on June 17, 2014 that all their products are gluten-free.  They have salami, pepperoni, Prosciutto, pancetta, etc.  Apparently they are east coast based, but I bought my stuff at HEB in Texas.  Leaving this info here for others, since there was no current info online.


If you are reading this and a long time has passed since June 2014, you need to re-contact the company as ingredients can change with time.
