Celiac Disease & Gluten-Free Diet Blogs

 

I'll Bet You Can Relate

Greetings, all, hope this finds you well. The following is my journal entry from the night before I began my new celiac lifestyle. I wrote it to help process my own feelings, and thought it may be beneficial for another struggling "newby" to realize you are truely not alone. Where to Now?I'm angry and lost. Thought I'd found the answer recently with a name to the mysterious symptoms that have consumed me for months; the need for more sleep than a newborn, irritability...okay, b%$@#iness to a

So, Get This...

I shop at a large local grocery store chain (Fred Meyer, for those of you who know it) and they have a wheat free section. They have recently moved this section and first it took them about two weeks to move the sign with it and then the other day I was purusing it, looking for more stuff and they had products right under the wheat free sign where the first ingredient was wheat! I'm not kidding! Literally the product right under the sign says "organic enriched wheat flour" right on the front of

Starting From The Beginning

I'm the lucky one in this crowd, no doubt about it. I had a baby and after three month of diarrhea the Dr. quickly diagnosed me as being allergic to gluten...that was 5 days ago. 3 months of suffering sounds like nothing compared to the other stories out there....I have some liver damage, but that will heal with time! Where do I go from here? Well, I feel incredible. 5 days sans gluten has given me this great energy boost and I didn't take a nap yesterday and I stayed awake until 10:30...I

Hello!

Hi! Welcome to my blog. My screen name is mytummyhurts, but my real name is Abby, I am 26.I was diagnosed with celiac disease last October. I have basically been gluten free for a few months now. But honestly, I'm still getting used to all the ingredients and I think I still make mistakes. I also need to buckle down and research all my beauty products, etc. I had been feeling pretty good up until a few days ago. But the past few days I've started feeling kind of sick again. This morning I felt b

Intro

Welcome to my blog. I will be using this space to bring together information I have gathered about my specific food intolerances so that maybe someone out there who identifies with any of them can make some connections to help them figure out what might be going on with them.A list of food intolerances and allergies I seem to have at this particular point in time (who knows, there may be more?) are as follows:gluten-intolerancenightshade-intolerance (potatoes, bell and spicy peppers, eggplant, t

Intro

So this is my intro post I guess. I actually do have a main blog, dedicated to my 2 1/2 year old daughter at O. Baby! and a main blog (currently on hiatus) at Life and Love in the Desert. But I figured a celiac.com blog might be interesting too.I was diagnosed with celiac disease the first time when I was about one year old, in 1976. I was originally diagnosed with failure to thrive and after changing dozens and dozens of disgusting cloth diapers every day for over a year, my mother took matters

I can't wait to get off prednisone next month!I made myself some scrambled eggs with a little cheese. put a little miracle whip on that and had a glass of orange juice. oj won't help the hypo but i knew I couldn't handle milk and my wrists are too weak to lift a tea kettle this morning and water, well, wa

Getting Started

Well- this is my first entry. I'm actually a journal keeper and a writer so this should come fairly naturally to me although I've never gotten into this whole blogging thing. I was just "diagnosed" with Celiac's back in January (2005) but we'll get into that later. I've got quite a story to tell and I hope that, if nothing else, it makes one more person out there aware of Celiac's. But, all things in good time.By the way, as a starter, my blog's subtitle "Blog of a sick chick" IS supposed to be

Introduction

Greetings, All. I hope this finds you well. I'm halfway into my 2nd year of my Celiac diagnosis. My story is much like yours. I was sick as a dog, dropping weight, and suffered with unrelenting bone pain and fatigue. I was fortunate enough (unlike some of you ) to cross paths with a GI doc who suspected Celiac from the start. From there, I struggled with depression and deprevation regarding the dietary restrictions, ate way too much rice, gained back the weight plus some in a place I NEV

Introduction

Hi. This is about how I fought to get my energy back and live my life again. Before I began a glutin free diet, I was almost incapacitated with fatigue, but now, five years later, I feel strong and am able to live my life. I can't say I'm 100%, and I still have bad days, but nothing like the days I spent lying on the couch, too exhausted to answer the phone. Today, a bad day means I'm tired early in the day and have to pace myself, rather than at the end of the day. I had all the markers for Ch

      Either way I'm hungry now!!!!

       In this house the spouse loves garlic. So the entire bulb would work😀.

      I am going to steal that thicken the stock with coconut idea sometime in the future.

       

      Makes for a bit of a gritty gravy, the egg yolk method works well. Coconut flour general rule is 1/3 the amount vs flour. It works GREAT for making taco meat roux, IE add in 1-2tbsp with some stock and seasonings after browning the meat, garlic, onions and this is how I recreated my mother's taco salad meat. 

      The egg yolk method, take your drippings/stock and run through a wire mesh into a pot assuming you have 20-30oz as I did. Reduce til you have 16oz, then in a small bowl whisk 2-3 egg yolks, add 1tbsp at a time of the stock to the bowl with yolk stirring constantly until you get about 1 cup of the mix then pour back into the pot and simmer over low til it thickens. Made a good brown thin gravy.
