Peanut Butter

Recommended Posts

You're welcome :)

Kale is good sauteed in a little olive oil and garlic (if you can eat garlic--if not, no problem). You will want to cook it until it's tender enough for you. None of the dark leafy greens cause gas for me--not even broccoli.

me either! Can I ask you what foods you eat? My B-day is coming up soon and a bought a KK white cake mix but, it contains soy. Do you have any recipes for a good tasting cake with frosting?

I do not Allow cross contamination in Any of my foods so I know thats not it. What else do you eat for protien?

Since I can't have a sandwich anyway, I just eat the nuts (all kinds of nuts) - usually with raisins. For breakfast I'll mash it with a banana. Sometimes I put them on a salad

I don't use any of the KK foods, as they contain soy and also pea protein (legume). I really like The Gluten Free Pantry Cake and Cookie Mix--and follow the directions for the cake. It's very good. For frosting, I do a homemade buttercream-type using Spectrum Shortening (no soy).

For foods, I eat meat, poultry (kosher), fruits (except citrus and coconut), veggies (except potato, and legumes), rice, olive oil, almond butter, almonds, yams, almond milk, Enjoy Life Cookies, Gluten Free Pantry French Bread, Tinkyada Pasta.

With all that, I eat very well--sometimes, too well :D

I have to avoid: gluten, soy, legumes, coconut, dairy and tapioca.

How do you make the Buttercreame frosting? If you do not mind me asking!

I need a lot of protein to feel sharp.

I have a hamburger pattie every morning for breakfast, with a big mug of orange juice.

And another hamburger pattie later in evening for a snack when hungry.

My hubby cooks up a lot of hamburg patties at once and then freezes them individually in a baggie, ready to grab and nuke up.

Best wishes to all!

I use Domino's Confectioner's Sugar and make the recipe on the side of the box--but I use Spectrum instead of butter, and either water or almond milk instead of milk. I also add about 1/2 teaspoon of McCormick butter flavoring to make up for the lack of butter.

Come to think of it, that's a lot of substitutions :blink: It's really good, though :P

We get Giant Eagle's grocery store brand of plain flavor potato chips, they are the only ones in regular grocery store that I have found without soybean oil.

We get the Giant Eagle brand plain tostado corn chips for taco salads and snacking, they're in the Deli Department, they don't have soybean oil.

And we get Fritos Scoops in the round cardboard canister, which don't contain soybean oil, we get ours at Aldis or Save-A-Lot grocery stores, it's the name brand Frito Lay corn chips, the Scoops style for dipping.

Me and son went for a year without chocolate candy, because I thought we couldn't have soy lecithin, which is what makes the candy harden and keep its shape.

Then I read on this site that we can have soy lecithin, that it loses the allergen/soy protein in the processing.

So we tried a milk chocolate bar with great trepidation, (not Hershey's, read my warning below) and lo and behold we can have it, and we've been enjoying certain candy bars ever since, yayyyy!

But be careful if you try soy lecithin, just in case, take a tiny bite and see what happens by the next day, sometimes reactions can hit the next day!

We were also glad to find that we can have the instant chocolate powder mix for choco milk.

But I've read on this site to watch out for Hershey's chocolate, because even though it says it doesn't contain glutens, some members here have been glutened by Hershey's chocolate.

I know this is possible, because when I tried Coca Cola, I got glutened, it hit me hard the next day.

I had e-mailed to the Coca Cola company before I tried it, to see if it contained gluten, and the first e-mail they sent me back said it could contain a miniscule amount of gluten and affect highly sensitive individuals.

Then I deleted the e-mail, but then the subject came up here and some members asked for me to post the e-mail from Coca Cola, but I had already deleted it a few months or so before.

So I e-mailed the Coca Cola company again, and the second e-mail they sent me back said there was no gluten in the Coke.

But I believe the first e-mail they sent was far more accurate, because I got sick as a dog for three days after trying just a few sips of Coke. I was one of the highly sensitive ones, and good thing I tried it before my son tried some, because he would have actually gotten deathly ill, what I call a mild anaphylactic shock reaction.

But there are many members here who have no problem with Coca Cola.

So in other words, just be careful when trying new things, because what works for one may not work for another!

Best wishes!

I love chocolate, but I seem to react to most of it :( About all I can get away with is Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. They're pretty good, and they're soy and dary free. It's hard to find chocolate in stores that don't have any soy or dairy. It seems that they either have one or the other--or there's a CC issue.

Kettle Chips are good--as of this year, their whole facility is gluten-free. I confirmed that by email. Also, Cape Cod Dark Russet Chips are made in a different room than their other chips, so no CC there, either. Of course, I don't eat those anymore because of problems with potatoes, but when I was eating them, I had no problems from a gluten standpoint. I don't eat corn chips, so I don't know about those.

Isis,

Also, another cause of bruising is not enough vitamin K. Good sources are green leafy veggies and broccoli, kale, spinach, and parsley. :)

I also bruised easily. I could bruise my arms if I leaned against something hard. My fingers would bruise when I tried to open jars. I ate brocolli, spinach and kale almost daily, but I STILL bruised easily. Only after I got my good bacteria levels up high enough, I stopped bruising. Even though dark green vegies give us SOME vitamin K, our good bacteria produce vitamin K in our intestines. I went through 3 (one week) courses of high dose probiotics (170 billion live organisms per dose) before I stopped bruising. My good bacteria levels were low because I took several antibiotic treatments earlier in my life. However I also took antacids and acid blockers which deplete stomach acid. Without stomach acid food born 'bad' bacteria goes to our intestines and overwhelms our good bacteria. In order to get my good bacteria levels high enough to stop bruising, I took digestive enzymes with HCl (betaine hydrochloride) or hydrochloric acid for several months and then took the high dose probiotics. Previously I took probiotics but my good bacteria levels didn't get high enough.

Before celiac disease, I was diagnosed with IBS, and I had a hard time with peanut butter since it was too fatty for me.

If you are recently diagnosed and your insides aren't healed yet it might just be that it's too fatty/heavy for you.

I have a problem eating peanut butter. I also have a problem eating cashews. I switched to almond butter and now I love it as much as peanut butter. I also used to crave chocolate all the time, especially during my cycle, ... right before actually. Since I started taking magnesium, I no longer crave chocolate.

The last celiac meeting that I went too there was a guest speaker (a doctor) that talked about peanut butter and being celiac.

The dr said that peanut butter was high in Omega 6 - (the bad one) and as celiac people we are already carrying around to much omega 6 in our cells. He suggested almond butter as a much better substitute. It is high in Omega 3's.

I have eated almond butter, it is expensive - the first jar was $8.50, now 2 months later is is $11.00 at the same store.

I have been putting it on celery, and never thought about it on apples until I read this, thanks for the tip! I don't use to much of it, but I did make an icing with it over a gluten-free cake for my hubby's birthday. It was a bit runny, but tastes oh so good on a chocolate cake!

I have allergies to soy and cane sugar (which are often added to peanut butter). So I use Whole Foods 365 peanut butter which contains peanuts and salt. That brand is fairly inexpensive at $1.69 a pound. I also buy 'grind your own' peanut butter from a local coop or Fred Meyer.

BURDEE

burdee-My roommate says that sometimes the grind your own pb contains gluten too, because of the dry roasted peanuts, but I haven't experienced a reaction to the stuff from Fred Meyer, have you noticed anything? or thought about this?

Thanks!

I have had problems with peanut butter but found it was the cottonseed oil in the peanut butter. When I buy a brand without cottonseed oil I'm ok. The cottonseed oil is in a lot of things.
