Is there a brand name of those rice tortillas?   That sounds good. I"d love to find a wrap or tortilla or bread or something that has no corn product in it. I looked up the Enjoy Life stuff.  It doesn't mention on amazon that there is no corn in it, but when you read the ingredients on your boxes, is there no corn ingredient, including no xantham gum? It'd be so great to find baking items with no corn.  

Seriously check my list -_- Simple Mills, grain free corn free mixes, Enjoy Life, is corn free also but uses a bunch of starches and grains, I listed a rice/cavassa tortilla on there, I listed coconut wraps as alternatives also and those are grain free. I also listed alternatives go gluten free and corn free tortilla chips......I have a corn allergy, like 100F+ fever and blood blisters forming in my mouth, stomach, intestines, and if I touch the stuff I break out in a poison ivy like rash.

i find that i can tolerate some foods that were off limits to me (soy, certain veggies, ice cream, chocolate, etc) if i do not eat them two days in a row, for whatever reason.  i'm thinking histamines.  whatever it is, i can eat many more/different foods.  i usually eat the same sort of food/meal every 3 days.  i was puzzled why i could eat something one day and be fine.  then eat the same thing the next day and not fine.  seems to be working :) i thought i had a problem with eggs bc i was eating them nearly every day for breakfast, but if i rotate it with cereal one day, a bagel or waffle or pancakes etc for day 2 then i can have eggs the third day as long as i go back to cereal the next day (for example) i can even tolerate fresh (and frozen lolz) fruit once every 3 days when i thought i couldn't tolerate fruit at all.  so long as i don't eat it tomorrow ;)

it's trial and error, and what works for one may not work for another.....  but this seems to be working for me.  right now lolz :D

Where is your list?  Was that also in the recipe section or a different section?  That has got to be really freaky having such a corn reaction.  I am glad you have found good foods to eat you are okay with.

Did not check earlier but I did not mention that the simple mills was corn free, though I did mention grain free.

Thanks. That list gave me some brands to try that have no corn.  I need to check some stores around town to see what they all have, but might have to order some things.  I did just get some pita pockets at the store (Market Basket) in the frozen section and they have no corn, brown rice, or rice bran, thankfully.  I haven't tried them yet, but on Halloween our tradition (ever since I was a kid) was homemade pizza.  I wasn't sure how I was going to do that this year, but now I'll use these pitas as the crust.  Now on to see if I can find a pepperoni that is not only gluten free, but no other ingredients in it that might bother me.  Although I will probably pass on all the toppings (like also onions and peppers and mushrooms) and just use cheese this year to be more gentle and mild on my tummy.  I am still recovering from I think an accidental cross contamination. 

Oh, the pita pockets in case anyone is interested are called Against The Grain.  The ingredients are: tapioca starch, milk, buckwheat flour, non GMO canola oil, salt, yeast, raisin juice concentrate, 

I am hoping nothing in them will bother me.   I have not had anything with buckwheat flour yet and hoping the raisin juice concentrate is okay.  Never even heard of that before.

Califlour foods, pizza crust is corn free. the plant based one is great. I think there is a huge sale right now on the 5 packs with a pizza pan. It can be used for a flat bread also, There is a trick to the crust, depending on the prebake you can get different levels of crispness 5min prebake gets a super soft crust while 15-20mins makes it extra crispy.

Ingredients:
Cauliflower, Almond Flour, Flax Meal, Olive Oil, Tapioca Starch, Garlic Powder, Dried Basil, Himalayan Pink Salt, Nutritional Yeast

When my gut is damaged from a glutening, I can not eat cauliflower.  Fortunately, with healing, I can get it back.   Same for dairy.   It is all about easy-to-digest foods.  

I have a big freezer in my garage.  Best investment ever!  I cook soups, stews and chili to always have on hand.  I freeze pre-cooked  ground beef, stew meat, chicken, shredded pork (seasoned or not)   Defrost to be tossed into any dish (e.g. tacos).  I also have cookies and other  goodies for my family that I bake.  Handy when going to a party, etc.   All gluten free of course.  

It sounds like you are doing just fine.  Plan for the times that you are tired or are not feeling well, so that you are making good choices all the time.   I keep snacks in my purse or food in a cooler when we are out and about.  

That meatloaf?  We add white rice.  Always have.  I think it is a Polish thing!  

You are doing great!  

CyclingLady, czy ty jest Polskie?  Wow, that is too funny!  Do you make golabki also?  I never developed the knack for making good golabki somehow, but my mom makes them awesome.  Too bad we don't have any good substitute for pierogi --- I don't think anyone is ever going to make a gluten-free dough that is that thin and stretchy that still holds together.

I do make a mean wild mushroom soup, from wild mushrooms that I gather and dry here in Alaska.  I used to make a pretty damned good makowiec (which all the members of the local Polish Club used to rely on and enjoy), but sadly no longer, as that was made of course with a gluten dough.  I also do zupa szczawiowa from szczaw that I grow myself.
