In Topic: Do You Ever Break Down And Eat Gluten Every Once In A While?

02 January 2015 - 09:07 PM

In answer to your question, three months ago I could NOT pass up two bites of a Belgian Lacy Cookie with a roasted marshmellow. It was to die for, literally. I've forgotten the digestive distress it caused, but I remember the rash I had for a month. It was so painful. I hadn't remembered it being so painful before. When I'm tempted, I remember that rash. I'm starting to have food aversions. I've actually asked my coworkers to support me in periods of weakness. They say: "Don't eat it, it will make you sick."


I'm grain free, and avoid "gluten free" labels. It's tough, but I've learned a lot about what makes me sick. Prepared and proceesed foods aren't reliable. I challenge you to eat grain free and proceesed free, all prepared at home meals for two weeks, and see how you feel. You can still eat fresh meats and fish, up the greens, sweet potatoes and squash and the olive oil or butter from grass feed cows. Then you'll will see what gluten does to you when you cheat. That little headache that you haven't had suddenly comes back. You mysteriously get another sinus infection, and the list goes one. Don't torture yourself. Your tastes will change, and you will take others with you on a health food journey when they see how amazing your skin looks because of all the beta carotene your getting in your diet.

In Topic: Does Anyone Here Eat Trader Joes Products?

Glad I saw this. When I can't make my own beans, I buy La Castellina from my local grocer. They are imported from Italy, made from beans, water and salt. I eat them without any ill effect. Since they cost a bit more, I decided to try Trader Joe's canned beans, made with beans, water, salt and calcium chloride. I did this a few times and eliminated any other possible varriables, and got sick every time. Tonight, I tried the canned salmon. This is my second time, and it made me sick. So I'm pretty sure it's the salmon. The dried plums are great, but I'm sensitive to whatever it is they do with most of their products. Also, I'm grain and soy free.

In Topic: Arborio Rice From Italy

I just opened a bag of Beretta brand from Italy, and it made me sick. Lundberg has gluten free arborio rice, and it's never given me a problem.

In Topic: Risotto Brand?

I use Lundberg. It comes with the flavor pack but you don't HAVE to use it and sometimes I don't. Their risotto mixes are made in a dedicated facility.

I know this is an old thread, but want to put my two cents in. I'm a new kid on the block. I love Lundberg rice. I made a big batch of Berreta arborio rice to bring to work, and head aches, itchiness and skids came back. I can eat Lundberg rice for days without any reaction at all. They make arborio and basmati rice and my local co-op sells it in 20# bags. Personally, I'm sensitive to stuff made in a facilities that process wheat. That's how we figured out I had gluten enteropathy. 

In Topic: Another Request To Help With Test Results

Glad I read this, it's similar to my biopsy report. Waiting to take the genetic test.
