Who's From Michigan?

Oh wow, if you could get the recipe, you'd be my hero! The snow is great - we got another 8 inches or so today alone! It's wonderful and so peaceful looking outside. Plus, I don't have to go out in the snow. Tomorrow I am going to make chicken soup and try gluten free matzah balls! I'll have to plan a work trip out to Troy area sometime this year though to get some good eats!

Hi - I live in Holt and I have no idea what is going on with my body. Apparently any wheat, gluten, or sugar gives me migraines (new) and am being treated for a system fungal infection after two sinus surgeries, 5 trillion antibiotics, steroids, etc.

I can only eat chicken and rice products and raw vegetables - all this happened in the last 3 months.

So I don't know if I have celiac disease but I find this board very supportive. I purchase a lot of items from Kroger's health section and from the The Better Health Food store in Frandor. I also buy a lot of foods from amazon .com because I am trying to feed my 3 children organically to remove any additional chemicals because the point I am at is very frightening.

You could try www.unitedbuyingclubs.com to see if there is a co-op in your area. There are a lot of gluten and organic items. It saves about 20% on the items but you order by the case.

I hope you get answers soon.

I am in Michigan and newly diagnosed... I live in Ypsilanti.

I'll be in Ypsilanti, MI in a few weeks for a gymnastics competition at EMU... I'll be travelling with my team, any advice for eating gluten-free in the area would be appreciated!

Happy New Year!

Can you share your recipe for gluten free matzah balls in the chicken soup? I have never had them and they sound good.

Also, can you share some of your snow with us Michiganers?!

Thanks,

Becky

It's been a green Christmas, sorry no snow to share (although normally I'd love to get rid of it!!). Yesterday we played at the park with just light jackets on, it must have been 50 and sunny out!

Sure thing about the recipe, Becky. They're definitely NOT matzah balls, but I had some chicken soup this morning for breakfast and it wasn't bad. They definitely weren't my Bubbeh's matzah balls! As for sharing the snow, believe it or not, I read on our local NBC affiliate website that there is some woman auctioning off snow on ebay!. Here's to a wonderful, happy and healthy New Year to everyone!

Matzah balls (taken from Celiac. com's recipe area)

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons rendered chicken fat (*you can use plain oil, but it's not nearly as good. I think Empire Kosher rendered chicken fat is sold pre-frozen in tubs.) I tried to make homemade schmaltz (chicken fat) from the chicken from the soup!

4 eggs

1 teaspoon salt

Royal Oak, MI - diagnosed with celiac 1 month ago. I feel great since the diet change but still going through some trial and error with products that claim to be under 20ppm.
