I have been gluten free for over 2 weeks and I've started having dreams about eating gluten! LOL! The two nights ago I dreamt I ate a piece of cinnamon roll and felt so guilty when I woke up. Then last night I dreamt that I ate gluten on accident!!! Has anyone else had wheat dreams?!

I used to have them all the time. It's been a long time since I've had one though. I went gluten-free in December of 06. The gluten-free dreams for me were a type of anxiety dream. They were a reflection of how anxious and frustrated I was about going gluten-free. I never felt guilty for eating gluten, but rather horrified, angry and scared. But that's a reflection of my issues with the gluten-free diet. Everyone has different frustrations and it's not uncommon for them to manifest in dreams.

I dream about pancakes... butter- and syrup- soaked pancakes. Not just eating them... but making them on the skillet. I relish the entire process. Luckily, you can learn to make your favorite treats using gluten-free flours or *hopefully* find a gluten-free bakery in your area. :)

I'm excited to make these. No guilt... except for those pesky calories.

When I was first diagnosed I had nightmares about eating gluten. Finally they went away after a couple of weeks.

I've had them too, same reaction, horrified. one day I woke up trying to throw up the Papa John's pizza I'd dreamed that I'd accidentally eaten... when someone hid some in my gluten-free Uno chicago pizza box.

I had my first gluten dream last week - I was eating graham crackers! LOL! In my dream, at first I thought they were gluten-free and then realized that they tasted "normal" and then I was trying to throw them up - I thought it was funny that it took 2 months to dream about it.

I had my first gluten dream last night! I was at a party (I think with my soccer team, most of whom have been extremely supportive since I went gluten-free on July 8/09). Someone was eating from a bag of chips and I just took a handful and started eating them! Someone asked me "you can eat those??" and I was like "omg I forgot!" I checked the ingredients and sure enough they were not gluten-free ...When I woke up I was relieved that I hadn't actually been poisoned!

Mine are usually about pizza! The last one, was a gluten free pizza place accidentally serving me real pizza. Of course I would know right away but dreams can be crazy!

I think all of us have these dreams. Mine was a delicious fire grilled hot dog on a bun. It was so good, then I remembered I can have buns...I woke up in tears, still worried I had glutened myself. It ruined my entire day!!!
