  • 2 cups dried lentils
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced thin
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 cup celery, sliced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 tablespoons parsley, chopped

Directions:
In a medium saucepan, cover lentils with water; bring to a boil, then rinse and drain.  Return lentils to pan.  Add 3 cups water and next 5 ingredients; bring to a boil.  Lower heat; simmer 45 minutes or until lentils are tender, adding more water if needed.  Stir in salt, pepper, vinegar and tomato sauce; simmer 5 minutes more.

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?

After reading the ingredients list on-line, they list cheese cultures (from barley), which is a first for me! I would not eat this because barley is no-no. Maybe there is another brand that is gluten free? You might want to do an on-line search.

I totally get Celiac's Wifey's line of thinking & agree wholeheartedly! I would like to build upon what Celiac's Wifey said but I'm not going to repeat what she said; I'm going in a different direction. I think that the particular source of gluten also plays a part in our physical react...

I just wanted to say that regardless of what test results you get give serious thought to going properly gluten free once testing is complete. I suffered almost 20 years of sciatic back pain along with many of the other symptoms you list above and only found relief once I removed gluten from my d...

Zaditor is OTC now and that is what I use for my eyes during allergy season. It works well and I don't worry about it drying out my eyes even more because you only use 1 drop in each eye, 1-2 times per day. They help tremendously with the allergic response so well worth using! You can try some...

All of the above mentioned treatments are worth trying but I have done almost all of them with little to no improvement. If you just have dry eye caused by anything other than Sjogren's, they might help but if you have Sjogren's with a lot of collateral damage to your glands, don't expect a lot ...
