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...

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...

Few issues at the market with another baker showing trying to sell gluten free, she also does gluten foods in the same kitchen so I ended up in big debate.

Mind set Summary

Worse Luck, Bad Freezers

Rant "It's Just a sandwhich"

As many know I run a small gluten free cottage bakery, on Main St. in a shared building with a store next door that I help out at to keep rent low that does machine work. Anyway one of the rules that came about for that store several years ago was NO gluten products allowed inside...this came about after a worker poisoned...

April Update

Had a scare few days ago, I thought I developed a almond intolerance, ended up being I can not eat raw almonds that I just chew and eat, roasted I can make into butter or chew and they turn into a "mud" that sinks, raw tend to turn into a floating gritty irritating paste that causes purging, almond flour is fine if...

Ravings of a Gluten Free Baker

So diagnosed with celiac years ago, I opted to make the best of my cooking and culinary skills and start baking and doing chef jobs for others with these diet restrictions. This enabled me to better myself, help others, and PAY for this diet. I opened up a cottage home bakery, sold at farmers markets, and did local...

Glutened Shared Facility Coconut

Worst of luck lol, I got some coconut chips, they said gluten free on the back but no certifications, I started snacking on them then felt that obvious tightening around my neck odd stomach, later puking, and I knew then. I took out the nima and tested the only new thing, and they came back positive for gluten. Thankfully...

January Update

Still got a few issues lingering from that glutening issue...onions are still off the menu...as are spices. SO my mexican rotation of cuisine is put off and sticking to Italian herbs and keeping it easy. I have learned a few new things diet wise.

Back to sweet nut based porridge for a few more weeks.

I was thinking spray the pan with...
