In Topic: Hungry And Upset

Hi Georgie,
I know it can be a challenge to buy food that is gluten free, and it becomes even harder when you are so far from a large shopping centre.

I noticed you are from Australia (so am I). I buy my flours online from wheatfreeworld and bake food that I can keep in the freezer. They have recipes for both sweet and savoury food.

If you like fish a good standby is a tin of tuna or salmon - mix it up with rice and a salad.

But my instant fix-all is to make a bowl of chocolate icing - that will cure anything!

Hope you feel better soon.

I am lucky with my friends. They are quite happy for me to bring my own food and they are just as happy to cook something that they know I will be able to eat.

More often than not I will offer to take a gluten-free casserole and a desert that everyone can eat. That way I don't go hungry and my friends get a quick lesson in gluten-free cooking.

Hope this helps.

In Topic: I Did Something Stupid....

I was also caught with the Spelt bread thing. I just wanted to have a piece of toast and I thought I had made the best find of my life.

Unfortunately for me it was only after the second piece that the folly of my eating really hit me - never again!

Glad to know I'm not the only one.

In Topic: Communion

03 February 2007 - 12:18 AM

I am Catholic and also struggled with this one.

I decided that I would not take Communion but have a Blessing instead. The priest at my church has a niece who is Celiac and so he understands and is totally cool about it.

I do miss taking Communion but it is a choice I am happy with.

In Topic: I Need Some Help Figuring This Out

It can be a nightmare trying to work out what is causing the pain. Pain at night can often be caused by something that you have eaten in the morning. Is there a certain food that you always eat in the morning, or always prepare for the children you babysit?

I suffer from reflux and pain caused by that is usually somthing that strikes in the middle of the night.

I hope you feel better soon.
