Amaretti Cookies

Amaretti Cookies

Stormy morning, can't bake most gluten-free recipes as weather prevents rising. So going testing a old recipe from a card (Families card box) I found.

Amaretti Cookies (card name) 100g Blanched Almond Flour 100g Swerve Sweetener 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 Almond Extract ...

Vertigo spells lately

Hello, I recently had two Vertigo episodes. I am wondering if the s’mores with marshmallows is the culprit? Has anyone experienced Vertigo from hidden gluten? I am really sensitive to gluten and Casein. I was diagnosed in May 2017 and had an endoscopy in March, small intestine was found to be normal. Diagnosis “May have Celiac”. I do carry one gene. Both Neice and my other nieces daughter are gl...

Finally Got Tested

I have been seeing doctors since April of this year. I finally got tested for celiacs on Tuesday; I'm still waiting to get the results. I have been sick everyday for the past 8 months. I get rashes all the time. I originally tried to take allergy medicine, but it doesn't help at all. The rashes are sooooooo itchy and even sometimes burn if they get bad enough. After I eat, I feel like I'm getting ...

Week 7 of gluten-free

Just like tracking the growth of a baby, I am now upping my tracking unit from days to weeks. I have learned a lot in this short time! The best thing we've done as a family is do gluten-free dinners. The cross-contamination in a family of five can drive me nutty, so it's best for me to stick to gluten-free family meals. For breakfast and lunch, on most days, everyone picks their own things and ...

Everything goes downhill....

So, mid march 2018 and I go on a family holiday away from home. I was now beggining to grow bored of my gluten free diet so what did I decide to do?.... be an idiot and eat gluten while we were on that  holiday! So I ate gluten every day and at first I felt okay... not too great but barely noticeable. Then i started to get more and more symptoms back but because I hadnt eaten anything glutenous in ...

The beginning

Last year in 2017 around October I decided to start a gluten free and dairy free diet because I had been feeling really ill when I ate gluten. It was hard because my friends all ate gluten (like a lot of people) and I had to watch them eat pizza and sandwhiches and cakes etc . I felt like I was really missing out and I hated that I couldnt eat all the foods I liked. Christmas day came and I had ...

A Company called NAMASTE

A TREMENDOUS BUY!:  About two years ago now we bought a gluten free spice cake mix from A Company called NAMASTE. At first it came in a brown paper lunch bag type of container, this past year it is in a box. The value is in the quantity. It makes two cakes, either "8 x 9" or 8" x 13". It tells you on the side of the box how to divide the mix if you are only wanting to make one cake. What is great ...

Day 9 of gluten-free

I'm progressing nicely, but still hitting bumps along the way. Last night I went to a Japanese steakhouse and thought I made great choices until it dawned on me this morning that imitation crabmeat has wheat in it as a binder. I also tried a bite of seaweed salad and enjoyed every flavor until I realized it had soy sauce in the dressing. The rice paper was a nice alternative to a traditional wonton...

Day 7 of gluten-free

Here I am a week into this lifestyle change and hoping I am on the right track. In general my digestive system feels better, but I seem to be constantly finding gluten hidden in things I wouldn't think of. Yesterday's discovery happened while reading the ingredients to an Italian dressing packet. I wouldn't have guessed that it would have wheat in it. Other learning curves are happening as...

Day 2 of gluten-free

A couple of weeks ago I received confirmation of what I had suspected for quite some time... I have celiac disease. Feeling that wheat doesn't digest well is different then knowing that it doesn't digest well. The formal confirmation is still sinking in... At first I was resistant and continued to eat wheat on occasion. I then became determined to give the gluten-free way of life a try in...

Steps for Recovery

This is a personal note to myself on things to remember next time and things to consider. If unsure of exposure take glidenX next few meals, blend and nima test samples of ingredients used to see if it was something you fixed. THOW AWAY that tooth brush....you brushed after getting glutened...your brush is contaminated.... MAKE SURE to add a extra 2 tsp of Liquid Health Energy&...

So stressed?

Hey ,I just found out that I have celiac and that I have to go on a gluten free  diet. The bad thing about this is that I’m a really picky eater and I’m scared and stressed about how this will effect my life?

Corn Conundrum

So I am allergic to corn...in a odd way. Corn starch, corn flour, corn syrup, corn oil will give me blood blister in my mouth and a 99-103F fever. Skin contact will cause a red sunburn looking rash that if not washed will start getting more like poison ivy.... Some derivatives from corn do not bother me, xylitol, erythritol, fibersol, etc. I used to think citric acid and xantham gum from corn...
