In Topic: Trouble With Culturelle Probiotic

13 May 2014 - 08:54 AM

I tried culturelle once, and it didn't seem to do anything whatsoever. That's not to say you won't have any reaction to it though. My sensitivities seem to only become heightened and expanded over time. It does get frustrating sometimes.


In Topic: More Questions On Glutening Symptoms

Some of the symptoms sound familiar to me, but as you noted, we're all different. There may very well be other things you'll react to besides gluten, especially now that you're body has has some time to recover.

 

Incidentally, some of the things you've stated have me wondering if you might have consumed any alcohol. For anyone who might be unsure, many types of alcohol do contain gluten. But also I've found that even a tiny amount of grain-free alcohol makes my system react badly. That includes vanilla extract and the like. I've read that alcohol in general isn't particularly well-tolerated by those with Celiac, especially while still healing.

 

Having a meal at a gluten-eating friends house is just asking for trouble IMHO. Even if the food you eat isn't supposed to contain gluten, there are just too many opportunities for cross-contamination to be safe.


In Topic: Vegetarian Lasagna Recipes

If you need it to be dairy-free, one idea I tried which was really tasty was to use pureed coconut instead of cheese. Might sound strange but it really was delicious. Of course, I happen to like coconut quite a bit :)

 

There's also spinach lasagna, which gives good flavor and can make up for the absence of meat.
