Girl Scouts Debut First Gluten-free Cookies

Celiac.com 10/22/2013 - Yeah, you heard right. People who've been dreaming of the day the Girl Scouts would offer a gluten-free cookie can stop dreaming!

Photo: Wikimedia_CommonsThat's because a select group of Girl Scout councils nationwide will be slinging the organization's very first gluten-free offering as part of the 2013-14 Cookie Sale.

The new cookie, called the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Shortbread cookie, is made with real chocolate chips and real butter, and contains no artificial flavors, no artificial colors, no high fructose corn syrup, no palm oil, and no hydrogenated oils.

The gluten-free cookies will be sold in a 5 ounce resealable foil pouch, with 12 pouches per case.

Finally! I was a Brownie leader for twelve girls, through all four of my daughters' Brownie stages. We sold hundreds of boxes of cookies each year. But when my youngest was diagnosed with celiac disease we stopped selling and buying and made donations instead. I didn't want to have a houseful of cookies that she couldn't enjoy. And now that she's a freshman in high school, Girl Scouts has done it! Hooray! Thank you for making a cookie that's healthier than ever and safe for celiacs and others!

Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!

Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks

Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.

^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick. also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some.

Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement. Hang in there.
