My Gluten Free Diet

Recommended Posts

I like to use it. I get the unsweetened, unflavored so I can use it for mashed potatoes and the like. I also like it with cereal too.


Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.

2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.

Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.

So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!

My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

I think I actually might have had my first little bit of withdrawl last night. Couldn't sleep for the life of me. Finally feel asleep at 2 am. Also woke up around 3am shaky and clammy. Stomach was a little burny yesterday and today.

Is almond milk a decent substitute for regualr milk?

Yes although personally I like the Wegmans Rice milk for most stuff.

My preference for a sub milk is hemp. There is great hemp ice cream too, also coconot.

Haha. No I'm reporting from the day before. I figured it at roughly 32 grams of fiber. The effects carried over to the next day. 32 grams is a little much I would think for someone who probably ate about less than 10 grams daily for his whole life.

Are you drinking the protein zone smoothies? They contain both soy and dairy and may not be tolerated by you right now.

Can you make your own smoothies for now? If you can that might be a good thing to do.

I've only been doing the ones that are vegan, gluten, soy and dairy free. Ex. Blue Machin, Might Mango, Mango Orange. I was in love with the Green Machine but it contains wheat and barley grass so that ends that. lol.

I do juice my own juices as well. too. Love my bullet express!

Good your skipping the ones with soy and dairy. I've got one of the bullet things too and we liked it so much I had to give mine to my son when he moved and get another one.

Out of curiousity you would know who makes Gluten Free Lip Balms. I've been using the ones with wheat germ not realizing it and they have been drying my lips out (i think).

I agree though, for Febuary I'm not complaining about 55 degrees today and tommorow.

Haha, I am familiar with that roadwork season in the Sierra too, but somehow it never shows on the calendars - they seem to call it some funny name like summer :blink:

One of my website clients sells one http://www.purebliss.tv/details.php?prodId=97&category=13&secondary=&keywords= She's in Australia but the manufacturer is in the U.S. I bet you can buy it in the U.S. or online through the manufacturer.

Cool I'll have to check it out. How's the diet going Nancy?

Don't judge my web designer skills based on that website! LOL We're reworking it. I hope that lip balm helps (I never use lip balm, I live in Texas!). I know it's vegan and gluten free. Diet is going fine. :) I'm not starving anyway! LOL I realized I don't have enough gluten free food in this house so I've been doing some ordering online. I must eat more than apples, bananas and tuna :P
