Recommended Posts

All celiacs are different, but when you read the posts, you are correct that many have problems w/dairy. I had problems w/dairy before the celiac problems. I bake w/soy milk, but many here have problems w/soy. Unfortunately, have never been able to eat chocolate so my sweets take on a different note. Since you are new to the gluten free diet (and good for you) you will need to have some ready made sweets to curb your desire for the gluten ones. I found it was just as easy to shop for the correct flours as it was searching for gluten free goodies (and just try reading that small print) and freezing them. Recipe conversions taste different not necessarily bad. My g/daughter is always ready to try 1 of my treats. The participants on this sight offer many interesting recipes. Continued success on your gluten free diet journey.

Hi

I am a vegetarian who loved chees e/dairy products but seemed to be having problems so went dairy free for a couple of years. My sister was diagnosed coeliac about 17 years ago and I was diagnosed ( still sort of in denial ) last year. Following the diagnosis I returned to dairy but to be honest although I love the taste etc don't feel it is helping. It's a bit of a chicken and egg situation. I have been told that some of the gut damage makes dairy intake difficult initially.

Comments welcome

I don't have mush of a problem with dairy..

But..having said that when I went gluten-free over 5 years ago I decided not to have milk just in case.

I kept off it for about 2 years, then found some lactase drops by Biocare which take out/reduce the lactose in milk..so I stuck with that if I wanted milk.

Now, 5 years down the line I can drink milk, normal milk aand I do get a slight reaction but nothing to worry about.

I just found that quitting it altogether until:

A: my tum had recovered

and

B: I had much more of an idea what was safe for me to eat..just getting to know products which contain gluten

..was the best thing to do.

But in this time I would eat cheese and have chocolate and they didn't seem to cause me much harm..but then I would only have a small amount..maybe 2 cubes of a bar per week or something.

Someone posted that they ate the really dark chocolate and so only needed to eat a little to curb their chocolate craving. You could chop it up for cookies ;) Just be sure its "allergy free".

Bake a bunch of cookies and freeze them. You know you can have them anytime without having to bake often. Lots of good recipes on the "baking/cooking" section. If you need a recipe, meet us over there and post it, we "bakers" can find you some.
