The vast majority of apple-cider vinegars aren't labeled specifically as GF, and I'm certainly not going to go running all over town to find one that is, and then pay 2 or 3 times as much for the privilege. I get cranky about recipes that imply that you can't use ingredients that aren't specifically labeled as gluten-free, when the presence of gluten in that particular product is spectacularly unlikely in the first place. I see things on the grocery shelf like packaged rice, and it is suddenly being touted as GF, and I wonder how gullible can people be?

I and many others here have been there and sympathise! Keep on keepin' on, it won't be long now before you can start feeling better. In the meantime, if there's a cheesecake, pastry etc that you want to say goodbye to, now's the time...

I'm not Catholic but I remember reading an article about gluten-free host wafers. Looks like this church has developed some guidelines you could show to your priest? https://www.dioslc.org/ministries/disabilities/holy-communion-for-people-with-celiac-disease

Yes. Went back on it a few weeks ago. I did mess all that up, doing Whole30 for March and April. Thought it was my gallbladder or an ulcer. I am glad I get to keep my organs! But, oops. I'll be on it 7 weeks by the time my appointment rolls around.

There are no rules that regulate where groceries put things. Should they put stuff that doesn't at least claim to be gluten-free in a gluten-free section? Probably not. I would ask them why the canned veggies and the produce and meat aren't in the gluten-free section? They have no gluten ingr...

Hey y'all! So I just have a quick question, what do you Christian/Catholic celiacs do during communion? Since I've been diagnosed I've just haven't taken it but I was wondering if anyone had any alternatives? Thanks a lot!
