Celiac.com 05/31/2017 - Anyone who has ever been to Mexico or to a good Taquería likely knows the joys of a good aqua fresca. For those who don't know, aqua fresca is a delicious fruit beverage, not unlike lemonade, but made with fruits like pineapple, strawberry, lime, hibiscus, and cantaloupe. Simple, delicious and thirst-quenching on a hot day, or with a spicy meal, aqua fresca is sure to please both kids and grown-ups. This version is made with strawberries, which makes it aqua de fresas.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 8 cups cold water
  • 2 limes, cut into wedges

Directions:
In a medium bowl, mix together sliced strawberries, sugar, and 1 cup of water.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.

Pour the strawberry mixture into a blender.

Blend on high until smooth.

Pour the blended berry mixture through a wire mesh strainer set over a large mixing bowl; discard the pulp and seeds.

Add 7 cups of cold water to the blended strawberries and mix well.

Chill in fridge first for 30 minutes, or pour over ice and serve garnished with lime slices or mint leaves.

I went here https://www.wendys.com/en-us/gluten-info and seemed to have gotten conflicting info. In one place it's says the sour creme baked potato is gluten-free. In another place, under condiments, it lists only light sour creme as gluten-free. Anyone know for sure?

The only symptom I know of that is celiac for certain is dh, which must be diagnosed by a dermatologist.

I have both eoe and celiac and now that I have been gluten free for 18 months, my anemia is gone. It is good to get off the iron supliments because mine may have been the cause of my ulcers. It feels good to recover and heal! I may work my way down to fewer supliments and lots of feel great da...
