Going Gluten Free ?

Recommended Posts

Steve,

That's a pretty solid basis for a healthy diet, even if it probably does get a bit boring at times. I'm glad your body is happy about being caffeine-free. I chose to give up caffeine completely (even decaf drinks) several months ago, and it worked wonders for me. It was HARD, though--even harder for me than going gluten-free turned out to be!

A question: I have seen some brand of Jasmine rice that was enriched, but I can't remember what it was called. Is Carolina brand enriched? Sometimes the vitamins they spray on white rice are derived from BARLEY, and customer service representatives often don't have much information available to answer "technical" questions like we have to ask!

I'm glad you're doing better, and I hope you continue to see progress!

Sarah,

It's Carolina and it is enriched. That must be whats bothering my system.

You're so right about Customer Reps.I'm starting to realize that 99% of the people I talk to have no idea how many ways gluten get's in/on food.

Cold-water coffee - we have used a Coffee Toddy for years (20+) and have given one to every member of our family (to varying degrees of acceptance). It's basically a plastic bucket/bowl, with a filter in the bottom, and a plug below that. You fill it up with a can of ground coffee, add water to the top, and let it set a day or two. Drain it into a carafe and keep it in the refrigerator. Then you use it like instant, putting a 1/4 inch in the bottom of your cup and filling it with boiling water. It's smooooth and acid free, and I think it's the best tasting coffee in the world. Those who love the bite of Starbucks don't like it as much - they feel like it's too weak, but since you can control how weak or strong it is, that's not the problem. They're just missing the acid. We take a jarfull on our trips, so we always have our favorite coffee, with no more hassle than boiling water. It's nice to know that something that tastes so good might actually be compatible with my new gluten-free diet!

My nutritionist has me eating off of the Blood type diet...........I am type B. Chicken is not allowed, it contains something in it that agglutinates the blood, whatever that means, but it will slow me down and make me feel icky. I do feel better and haven't had any chicken for about 6 months. Chicken and pasta used to be my staples before Celiac.........no more :(
