The Best Advice Or Info About celiac disease You Have Gotten From

Recommended Posts

Ooooh... I almost forgot. One of the BEST things I learned on here was that the macaroni in Kraft Mac and Cheese isn't gluten-free, BUT THE CHEESE POWDER IS!!!

My DD (diagnosed last year) was the happiest to learn that!! You can buy it in a shakey can like Parmesan cheese in some groceries!

Another thing!

I learned here that Swiss Chalet chicken, dipping sauce, baked potato and sour cream are all gluten free! I thought Swiss Chalet was lost to me forever because I just assumed that the sauces they had would have gluten in them. Of course their gravy does have gluten in it, but the dipping sauce is fine along with their chicken! Yipee!

PF CHANG'S has a gluten free menu.... YUM!!!!

Classico alfredo sauces are gluten free. My kids really like them, but they have a bunch of stuff we're avoiding so we only have them once in awhile.

i can't think of which advice has been the best-----but i loved it when vincent posted the picture of the gluten free cocoa pebbles box. the front of the box is different from the old ones, so i knew what to look for----and found them!!!! the lists that people have sent me have been helpful. just knowing that i can come on here and ask a question about celiac and get answers is wonderful.

My number one thing is from Richard: I now use BBQ salt, that I found and modified, for everything - his suggestion for my missing real BBQ. Made grilling fun again.

But along with that is all the support!

THANK YOU, EVERYONE!!! I cannot imagine where I would have been these last few mos. Still glutening myself regularly, no doubt. Either that or choking down the yucky foods.

This board recommends great brands....Kinnikinnick, Pamela's, Enjoy Life, EnviroKidz....

This board offers delicious recipes.....Nini's chicken, and so many, many more.....

This board offers tremendous support....

Hey, and while individually, I think we all have some struggles, collectively we're very intelligent.

I don't think CC ever would have occurred to me without all of you, eventhough it's a very real problem for me.

I, too, hesitate to mention names because I have learned so MUCH from so MANY, but I also want to thank Elonwy for offering advice on how to use the Triumph dining cards. (When I do eat out again, I know I'll use her tips with my new cards).

I'm a lucky Celiac. Y'all are the best :P

I can't even remember how I found this board, but I have been so thankful many times. There are so many of you that have helped me through many trials and errors, items to check etc. And many of you that have made me laugh. I think initally KaitiUSA and celiac3270 held me up through the very worst of it, but many thanks to all

I had never even heard of celiac before finding this site. I had originally been searching for wheat allergies or intolerances. Learned about enterolab and had that testing done. Found out 3 of us are gluten intolerant. Never even went through the doctor. I would like to thank Scott for putting this site and forum up. I've learned a lot and made a lot of friends.

This board has been a lifesaver.

One of the biggest things I learned was CC issues and how to get hubby to be more careful (I use the rat poison analogy all the time now!)

Big thanks to everyone that has helped!

This group has been so supportive with information and emmotionally for me. If it wasn't for all of you I would feel so alone and frustrated. It is comforting to know that there are people here who care and will help me. And I hope that I can help others in return.

In light of recent arguments, let's each think of some advice or info you've received from a poster on this board that helped you deal with Celiac disease. It's not necessary to remember the poster's name if you can't. Just let others know the advice or info and make sure it came from someone here.

For me... I learned that Post Cocoa and Fruity Pebbles were gluten free *I have children.

Also, that chapsticks need to be checked and so does shampoo. Also, ordering on line from Kinnikinnick is safe and Chebe bread is great. Modified Food starch doesn't mean gluten.... check the source!!! Opened up a lot of banned food choices for us!

If I wasn't a member of this board, I don't know that I'd know these things.

Thanks everyone!

This thread has great potential for being a newbie resource! :)

queen of hearts for telling me about wheat. ursula, well for nearly every question ive asked, talenberry for the right calcium. carla b for advice about the kids. everyone on this board is super nice and will share any info freely with anyone who asks, youve all been really good to me. thanx

I am so thankful for this site. Without it I would have tested negative on a blood test and been sick the rest of my life. But now I tested with enterolab and found gluten and casein intolerances and that made all the difference.

Also I found out I get the burning from tapioca and I'm sad because it's in all Bette's bread recipes and kinnickinick. But where on earth would I have learned about that!

I am thankful to all of you! and Nini and Carla B especially. Carla has a similar enterolab profile to me and that makes me feel like I'm not the only person in the world like this. She has given me the courage to believe that it is not all in my head because I am "just" gluten intolerant. Also, Tom, I don't know his signature name, but he was very welcoming.

Also wondering what Carrie's breadstick recipe is and Nini's chicken recipe?

Oh, and thanks for Tinkyada pasta! I thought my spagetti days were history!

and last, my husband has responded positively to gluten-free, he has been tired all his life and had gas and gut rot. He is becoming a whole new person and it is very exciting. His dad was like that his whole life so my husband thought he had to be too. His dad probably had a gluten/celiac deal too. Too bad he died of colon cancer at 62. Thankfullly my husband found out and can do something about it to positively affect his life before it was too late.

I have gotten so much GREAT advice and/or information from the people on this forum for the past year that I can't even BEGIN to say what is the best . . . . The people I have met, the friends I have made -- they have been a Godsend. I can honestly say that I don't know what I would have done without them . . . and don't know what I would do without them now.
