HAHAHAHAA!!!!!! They're addictive, aren't they? I throw in tons of cinnamon and nutmeg.

Although 'a la Bunnie' kinda sounds like I'm being roasted on a spit.... :ph34r:

Never!

I also use a lot of cinnamon and last night the nutmeg got added in - going to increase it next time - which may be this afternoon - not addictive at all :rolleyes:

Black eye peas cooked with gluten-free smoked sausage

Collard greens and bacon

Both cooked in chicken stock

I also made pasta for a group. I cooked my rice pasta and defrosted a carrot sauce. Everyone else had regular pasta and tomato sauce. Oh, and I made meatballs for everyone.

My apple dessert of late is to combine it with dates and nuts. It tastes like a taffy apple!

Today I will freeze some of the above meals and I'm wondering what to cook next?

Making unstuffed egg rolls today. Too lazy to get out the rice paper wrappers and fry.

Brown ground chicken and break up as it cooks. Add a package of cole slaw cabbage and wilt. Spinkle with salt and generous amount of garlic powder. Serve with sauce drizzled over. Sauce is a bit of pineapple juice mixed with vinegar, cane sugar, and water. Thickened with a bit of GMO free corn starch.

Yesterday I made pizza! The almond-coconut-egg crust covered with a garlic sauce and topped with artichokes and mushrooms was delicious! I did include a bit of grated mozzarella cheese, as I can have a bit of dairy now and again without the rash appearing. I just ate some again for breakfast. YUM!

The kids ate regular cheese pizza with tomato sauce. It looked delicious.

Tonight I'll be cooking chicken soup with some pastina for the kids.

Great thread, I will have to come back and contribute! for tonight I am off to an event/dinner which I am being accommodated at but I made these brownies which are waiting for me when I get home since I have to skip the ones provided. http://freeeatsfood.com/2012/01/11/brownies/ I use my own special flour blend free of potato and tapioca starch because of other allergies.

Oh I almost forgot to post about another discovery. It's so easy and tasty! Pork tenderloin cubed in the crock pot with apples, oranges, garlic, some coconut flakes, raisins, and a scant half cup of coconut milk. Oh, and curry, lots of curry. It was soooooooo good! It tasted sweet to me, something I've been craving, but my DH did not think it was sweet. The original recipe called for chicken bouillon for flavor and then some kind of thickener to make a gravy. I just omitted both. Gluten and corn starch problem solved, haha!

Also, I found a garlic sauce, Lebanese style, that is delicious! We ate it with the chicken from the chicken soup tonight. A head of garlic, chopped, some salt, 1/2 cup lemon juice, and 1-1/2 cups of oil mixed with the immersion blender. It fluffs up like mayonnaise but is better for hot foods. And it's another sauce, another flavor profile to add to the parade of veggies with meat.

Sorry my contributions are not always grain-free since I have nut and seed allergy and I need the few grains I have left for dietary balance but I have many grain allergies as well. Hope that it's ok to share things that are not grain-free, all my food is free of the others.

Today I had Whole Foods meat case bulk sausage as patties for my Breakfast, with part of a satumaimo-Japanese purple skinned-yellow fleshed sweet potato with a little ghee on it.

Here is a "sauce" recipe I use on fish or chicken.

Salsa Verde(not my choice of names)

1/2 c. finely chopped parsley

1/2 c. olive oil

3 Tb. capers, drained and chpped

1 Tb. lemon juice

1 tsp. fresh oregano or 1/3 dried

1 glove garlic, minced

salt to taste

Mix. Will keep 3 days in the fredge, press plastic wrap to cover the surface.

What do you all have for breakfast? as your carb/starch I am getting tired of pumpkin, cranberries and apples in things. I have a few muffin recipes that are corn, potato and tapioca-free, by alteration, originally or use very little starch compared to most. I could share if anyone wanted. I often have mufffins, but as I said, tired of the same old recipes. I also have steel cut oatmeal or leftover squash or sweet potato, occasionally a bowl of rice with some kale sprinkled on top. I don't eat eggs unless thay are an ingredient in baked goods so that makes breakfast a bit more challenging.

I do eat eggs with fresh vegies and leftover meat most mornings - the other mornings are paleo pumpkin or apple muffins/breads made with coconut flour.

In a hurry I eat apple slices with almond butter.

When I was not yet grain free I frequently ate rice or quinoa in the morning with a bit of cinnamon and apples.

I've also heard a lot of people that can tolerate oats make oatmeal cookies with dates, nuts or raisins to keep in the freezer for quick breakfast/snack food.

Perhaps search paleo pancakes to find some recipes that should fit your restrictions.

Hi Dave-

How did your fermenting go? I tried gaps diet awhile back and couldn't tolerate the fermented vegies required. Wondering if you were able to eat them.

Also wanted to add my Chocolate Mousse Like Substance to this thread - I've been fiddling with it for at least a month - last night was the best - yummy:

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1/3 cup cocoa

1/3 cup almond butter

1/3 cup agave

1/2 - 1 cup almond milk - still playing with this a bit

1 tsp vanilla

Blend well in blender - have not had the same results using a wisk or mixer.

Fill custard cups - refrigerate a few hours till set.

If you can't tolerate almond milk - coconut milk works too.

For these recipes I make simple almond milk with just almonds and water in blender - without the straining step used when you drink almond milk.

I tried keifer with probotics twice an got sick, i then tried there coconut milk with probotics an got sick again. I"m a little hard headed, but i kept reading that i needed them!!! I"m kind of scared to try the ferminited veggies, but i will. Still have not made any or decided which kind of veggies i want to use. I do not care much for cabbage so thinking of trying something differant.

Today i"m having collard greens, sweet potatoes, an fresh pork neckbones cooked in the pressure cooker.

I"ve only been 4 weeks corn free an the differance in my life is unbelivable, I"m trying to reintroduce some foods back into my diet. So far so good. I"m just taking it slow an enjoying not being so sick.

Nc Dave, fermented cabbage, or Kim Chee, tastes differently than straight up cabbage, IMHO. Guess you could also try sauerkraut? I haven't found any yet that is gluten, etc., free, but I also haven't looked very hard. Bigos stew, or polish hunters stew, is cooked with sauerkraut and sausage, along with mushrooms and some other things. These might be options for you?

For Thanksgiving I made two paleo pumpkin pies. One with a walnut crust, one with mixed nuts. Both were good and I was happy to be able to eat dessert! The custard was made with fresh roast pumpkin, coconut milk, and honey.

For breakfast lately, I've been eating lots of vegetables, sometimes with an egg, sometimes with bacon, or other meat, always Carmelized a bit.

Tonight for dinner we had a pork stew cooked in the crock pot, made with apples, oranges, garlic, onion, curry, raisins, and cubed pork tenderloin. I served it atop quinoa and sautéed asparagus for a side. I LOVE this stew! It is both sweet and savory, and really tasty on a cool weather day.

Hi all,

It seems that once going gluten-free many of us find other problems arise. The above list (gluten-free, dairy, soy, corn, and nightshade free) seems to be a common one, along with totally grain free. Can we start a thread of recipes and meal suggestions that follow these restrictions?

Can you share your recipe for your sweet and sour pork dish?

GottaSki, thanks for the sauce rec! Good idea I'm going to have to do that.

How did the pie work out?

I still have to make a practice paleo pie soon in preparation for our Thanksgiving dinner. I made a Caramel Pecan Bar with basically pecans and dates. There were a few tablespoons of coconut milk, and that seemed ok for me so I bought more. Lots of recipes are calling for coconut milk in place of dairy. Homemade cashew milk can be too nutty for the other flavors sometimes.

Yesterday I made a crock pot sweet/sour pork dish. It was a made up recipe, based on BBQ but without any tomatoes. I did, however, use chili powder spices. That may have hit my stomach in a bad way? I'll have to see what happens tomorrow.

Confession: oh, I've been a bad girl. All that Halloween candy in front of me, tempting me, how much can a girl take? Then a new candy showed up, attractively packaged, of a snickers bar with almonds instead of peanuts. It said gluten free. But it did have soy, corn, and probably dairy, basically almost everything on my list to avoid. I savored that candy in 3 tiny bites! And woke up hurting a little. Tonight, I think I'll just have wine, LOL!

Oh well it didn't turn out so well. I did use chili powder and hoped that the nightshade connection wouldn't be so strong. But it upset my stomach. I don't think I have it written down anywhere now. It wasn't so great. I'll have to try again with some cider vinegar and honey. Sorry to disappoint.

But thanks for joining us here! We can always use new food ideas!

Yesterday I made a bread recipe from everyday paleo. It's basically almond butter n eggs. It's pretty good. It's just too easy to eat too many nuts with these paleo recipes.

Hey everyone! I'm so excited to have found this thread! I had no idea this combination of allergies was common - let's unite!

I'm also a chef so this makes things both easier and harder. I cook all day so I'm not always thrilled to have to cook my own food, however it helps because I can improvise meals to taste great with all my experience. I'll surely be posting what I come up with.

I'm going to try and make a gluten free dairy free mac and cheese. Been craving comfort food!

Does anyone know if sorghum flour is just as bad as say buckwheat/corn? I've been straying from my diet so I'm not sure if it's because I ate a bunch of pizza made of sorghum/tapioca or not.. hmm

Breakfast: almond yoghurt smoothie with blueberries and mango

Lunch: roasted parsnips and squash with Serbian chevaps with a peanut butter and chocolate chip cookie (sorghum)

Dinner: Miso, Chicken and Kale soup with Vermicelli

    Celiac.com 06/16/2018 - Summer is the time for chips and salsa. This fresh salsa recipe relies on cabbage, yes, cabbage, as a secret ingredient. The cabbage brings a delicious flavor and helps the salsa hold together nicely for scooping with your favorite chips. The result is a fresh, tasty salsa that goes great with guacamole.
    Ingredients:
    3 cups ripe fresh tomatoes, diced 1 cup shredded green cabbage ½ cup diced yellow onion ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro 1 jalapeno, seeded 1 Serrano pepper, seeded 2 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar 2 garlic cloves, minced salt to taste black pepper, to taste Directions:
    Purée all ingredients together in a blender.
    Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. 
    Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, as desired. 
    Serve is a bowl with tortilla chips and guacamole.

    Celiac.com 06/15/2018 - There seems to be widespread agreement in the published medical research reports that stuttering is driven by abnormalities in the brain. Sometimes these are the result of brain injuries resulting from a stroke. Other types of brain injuries can also result in stuttering. Patients with Parkinson’s disease who were treated with stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus, an area of the brain that regulates some motor functions, experienced a return or worsening of stuttering that improved when the stimulation was turned off (1). Similarly, stroke has also been reported in association with acquired stuttering (2). While there are some reports of psychological mechanisms underlying stuttering, a majority of reports seem to favor altered brain morphology and/or function as the root of stuttering (3). Reports of structural differences between the brain hemispheres that are absent in those who do not stutter are also common (4). About 5% of children stutter, beginning sometime around age 3, during the phase of speech acquisition. However, about 75% of these cases resolve without intervention, before reaching their teens (5). Some cases of aphasia, a loss of speech production or understanding, have been reported in association with damage or changes to one or more of the language centers of the brain (6). Stuttering may sometimes arise from changes or damage to these same language centers (7). Thus, many stutterers have abnormalities in the same regions of the brain similar to those seen in aphasia.
    So how, you may ask, is all this related to gluten? As a starting point, one report from the medical literature identifies a patient who developed aphasia after admission for severe diarrhea. By the time celiac disease was diagnosed, he had completely lost his faculty of speech. However, his speech and normal bowel function gradually returned after beginning a gluten free diet (8). This finding was so controversial at the time of publication (1988) that the authors chose to remain anonymous. Nonetheless, it is a valuable clue that suggests gluten as a factor in compromised speech production. At about the same time (late 1980’s) reports of connections between untreated celiac disease and seizures/epilepsy were emerging in the medical literature (9).
    With the advent of the Internet a whole new field of anecdotal information was emerging, connecting a variety of neurological symptoms to celiac disease. While many medical practitioners and researchers were casting aspersions on these assertions, a select few chose to explore such claims using scientific research designs and methods. While connections between stuttering and gluten consumption seem to have been overlooked by the medical research community, there is a rich literature on the Internet that cries out for more structured investigation of this connection. Conversely, perhaps a publication bias of the peer review process excludes work that explores this connection.
    Whatever the reason that stuttering has not been reported in the medical literature in association with gluten ingestion, a number of personal disclosures and comments suggesting a connection between gluten and stuttering can be found on the Internet. Abid Hussain, in an article about food allergy and stuttering said: “The most common food allergy prevalent in stutterers is that of gluten which has been found to aggravate the stutter” (10). Similarly, Craig Forsythe posted an article that includes five cases of self-reporting individuals who believe that their stuttering is or was connected to gluten, one of whom also experiences stuttering from foods containing yeast (11). The same site contains one report of a stutterer who has had no relief despite following a gluten free diet for 20 years (11). Another stutterer, Jay88, reports the complete disappearance of her/his stammer on a gluten free diet (12). Doubtless there are many more such anecdotes to be found on the Internet* but we have to question them, exercising more skepticism than we might when reading similar claims in a peer reviewed scientific or medical journal.
    There are many reports in such journals connecting brain and neurological ailments with gluten, so it is not much of a stretch, on that basis alone, to suspect that stuttering may be a symptom of the gluten syndrome. Rodney Ford has even characterized celiac disease as an ailment that may begin through gluten-induced neurological damage (13) and Marios Hadjivassiliou and his group of neurologists and neurological investigators have devoted considerable time and effort to research that reveals gluten as an important factor in a majority of neurological diseases of unknown origin (14) which, as I have pointed out previously, includes most neurological ailments.
    My own experience with stuttering is limited. I stuttered as a child when I became nervous, upset, or self-conscious. Although I have been gluten free for many years, I haven’t noticed any impact on my inclination to stutter when upset. I don’t know if they are related, but I have also had challenges with speaking when distressed and I have noticed a substantial improvement in this area since removing gluten from my diet. Nonetheless, I have long wondered if there is a connection between gluten consumption and stuttering. Having done the research for this article, I would now encourage stutterers to try a gluten free diet for six months to see if it will reduce or eliminate their stutter. Meanwhile, I hope that some investigator out there will research this matter, publish her findings, and start the ball rolling toward getting some definitive answers to this question.

    Celiac.com 06/14/2018 - Refractory celiac disease type II (RCDII) is a rare complication of celiac disease that has high death rates. To diagnose RCDII, doctors identify a clonal population of phenotypically aberrant intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs). 
    However, researchers really don’t have much data regarding the frequency and significance of clonal T cell receptor (TCR) gene rearrangements (TCR-GRs) in small bowel (SB) biopsies of patients without RCDII. Such data could provide useful comparison information for patients with RCDII, among other things.
    To that end, a research team recently set out to try to get some information about the frequency and importance of clonal T cell receptor (TCR) gene rearrangements (TCR-GRs) in small bowel (SB) biopsies of patients without RCDII. The research team included Shafinaz Hussein, Tatyana Gindin, Stephen M Lagana, Carolina Arguelles-Grande, Suneeta Krishnareddy, Bachir Alobeid, Suzanne K Lewis, Mahesh M Mansukhani, Peter H R Green, and Govind Bhagat.
    They are variously affiliated with the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, and the Department of Medicine at the Celiac Disease Center, New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center, New York, USA. Their team analyzed results of TCR-GR analyses performed on SB biopsies at our institution over a 3-year period, which were obtained from eight active celiac disease, 172 celiac disease on gluten-free diet, 33 RCDI, and three RCDII patients and 14 patients without celiac disease. 
    Clonal TCR-GRs are not infrequent in cases lacking features of RCDII, while PCPs are frequent in all disease phases. TCR-GR results should be assessed in conjunction with immunophenotypic, histological and clinical findings for appropriate diagnosis and classification of RCD.
    The team divided the TCR-GR patterns into clonal, polyclonal and prominent clonal peaks (PCPs), and correlated these patterns with clinical and pathological features. In all, they detected clonal TCR-GR products in biopsies from 67% of patients with RCDII, 17% of patients with RCDI and 6% of patients with gluten-free diet. They found PCPs in all disease phases, but saw no significant difference in the TCR-GR patterns between the non-RCDII disease categories (p=0.39). 
    They also noted a higher frequency of surface CD3(−) IELs in cases with clonal TCR-GR, but the PCP pattern showed no associations with any clinical or pathological feature. 
    Repeat biopsy showed that the clonal or PCP pattern persisted for up to 2 years with no evidence of RCDII. The study indicates that better understanding of clonal T cell receptor gene rearrangements may help researchers improve refractory celiac diagnosis.

    Celiac.com 06/13/2018 - There have been numerous reports that olmesartan, aka Benicar, seems to trigger sprue‐like enteropathy in many patients, but so far, studies have produced mixed results, and there really hasn’t been a rigorous study of the issue. A team of researchers recently set out to assess whether olmesartan is associated with a higher rate of enteropathy compared with other angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs).
    The research team included Y.‐H. Dong; Y. Jin; TN Tsacogianis; M He; PH Hsieh; and JJ Gagne. They are variously affiliated with the Division of Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics, Department of Medicine, Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, USA; the Faculty of Pharmacy, School of Pharmaceutical Science at National Yang‐Ming University in Taipei, Taiwan; and the Department of Hepato‐Gastroenterology, Chi Mei Medical Center in Tainan, Taiwan.
    To get solid data on the issue, the team conducted a cohort study among ARB initiators in 5 US claims databases covering numerous health insurers. They used Cox regression models to estimate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for enteropathy‐related outcomes, including celiac disease, malabsorption, concomitant diagnoses of diarrhea and weight loss, and non‐infectious enteropathy. In all, they found nearly two million eligible patients. 
    They then assessed those patients and compared the results for olmesartan initiators to initiators of other ARBs after propensity score (PS) matching. They found unadjusted incidence rates of 0.82, 1.41, 1.66 and 29.20 per 1,000 person‐years for celiac disease, malabsorption, concomitant diagnoses of diarrhea and weight loss, and non‐infectious enteropathy respectively. 
    After PS matching comparing olmesartan to other ARBs, hazard ratios were 1.21 (95% CI, 1.05‐1.40), 1.00 (95% CI, 0.88‐1.13), 1.22 (95% CI, 1.10‐1.36) and 1.04 (95% CI, 1.01‐1.07) for each outcome. Patients aged 65 years and older showed greater hazard ratios for celiac disease, as did patients receiving treatment for more than 1 year, and patients receiving higher cumulative olmesartan doses.
    This is the first comprehensive multi‐database study to document a higher rate of enteropathy in olmesartan initiators as compared to initiators of other ARBs, though absolute rates were low for both groups.

    Celiac.com 06/12/2018 - A life-long gluten-free diet is the only proven treatment for celiac disease. However, current methods for assessing gluten-free diet compliance are lack the sensitivity to detect occasional dietary transgressions that may cause gut mucosal damage. So, basically, there’s currently no good way to tell if celiac patients are suffering gut damage from low-level gluten contamination.
    A team of researchers recently set out to develop a method to determine gluten intake and monitor gluten-free dietary compliance in patients with celiac disease, and to determine its correlation with mucosal damage. The research team included ML Moreno, Á Cebolla, A Muñoz-Suano, C Carrillo-Carrion, I Comino, Á Pizarro, F León, A Rodríguez-Herrera, and C Sousa. They are variously affiliated with Facultad de Farmacia, Departamento de Microbiología y Parasitología, Universidad de Sevilla, Sevilla, Spain; Biomedal S.L., Sevilla, Spain; Unidad Clínica de Aparato Digestivo, Hospital Universitario Virgen del Rocío, Sevilla, Spain; Celimmune, Bethesda, Maryland, USA; and the Unidad de Gastroenterología y Nutrición, Instituto Hispalense de Pediatría, Sevilla, Spain.
    For their study, the team collected urine samples from 76 healthy subjects and 58 patients with celiac disease subjected to different gluten dietary conditions. To quantify gluten immunogenic peptides in solid-phase extracted urines, the team used a lateral flow test (LFT) with the highly sensitive and specific G12 monoclonal antibody for the most dominant GIPs and an LFT reader. 
    They detected GIPs in concentrated urines from healthy individuals previously subjected to gluten-free diet as early as 4-6 h after single gluten intake, and for 1-2 days afterward. The urine test showed gluten ingestion in about 50% of patients. Biopsy analysis showed that nearly 9 out of 10 celiac patients with no villous atrophy had no detectable GIP in urine, while all patients with quantifiable GIP in urine showed signs of gut damage.
    The ability to use GIP in urine to reveal gluten consumption will likely help lead to new and non-invasive methods for monitoring gluten-free diet compliance. The test is sensitive, specific and simple enough for clinical monitoring of celiac patients, as well as for basic and clinical research applications including drug development.

    • Well you approached the SIBO side...what about candida? Stuff actually sets up worse after antibiotics. The good bacteria helps kill the stuff, but antibiotics can make it worse and kill off the good guys. It can cause gas, bloating, cravings for sugar, a almost drunk/hung over feeling. If your diet has been high in carbs/sugars then good chance.

      Other thoughts it could be another AI disease or gut issues....some of us get those, I gut Ulcerative Colitis by example with its own set of triggers...in my case this includes the rare sugar triggers.
      Could also be your not as gluten free as you think, if your eating out, using a shared kitchen, did not clean out the kitchen and replace certain things you could be still getting it from sources...this diet can take over year to master. Reread the newbie 101 section to be sure.

      To be on the safe side go to a whole foods only diet for a bit, also be sure to remove dairy and oats from your diet....the enzymes to break down dairy are from the vili which are damaged, and oats are commonly CCed along with the fact 10% of celiacs react to oats also regardless.

      Food intolerance issues and sensitivities...gluten is not our only issue, most of us develop some other kind of food issues with certain foods causing symptoms....keep a food diary, and go to a whole foods only diet, then try certain foods and record changes it might be a spice or something like onions, garlic, tomatoes, potatoes, carbs, soy, corn, etc.

      As to the lump I am unsure, hernia? Gas distention? Like hard lump you have to press to feel, or a distended soft lump? Do you have blood in the stool, or signs of bruising, darkening around the lump? Yellish skin, or yellow in the whites of your eyes? I would really see about having a doctor look at it.  
    • Hi Everyone, I've been diagnosed with celiac and I have been gluten free for the past 9 months, but I have not getting better.  The only thing that improved is that I no longer have diarrhea after eating meals.  I have bloating after eating, stomach pain, severe dry eye and a lump on my left side below my ribs that is becoming more painful lately.

      I am wondering what this lump can be?  I've had it since before I was diagnosed but it has only recently been getting painful and feels like it is getting bigger.  I had a CT scan a year ago that didn't find anything and the colonoscopy and endoscopy I had that found the celiac disease 9 months ago didn't find anything related to the lump.

      I'm wondering what this lump could be.  Can it be inflammation from the celiac or is it likely something else? I'm seeing my gastroenterologist tomorrow and I'm looking for suggestions.  He first thought the lump was gas and that I had SIBO / bacterial overgrowth but two weeks of Doxycycline made absolutely no difference for me.  I would love to have some ideas of what this could be so I can get him to run some tests on this lump. Thanks.
    • Grief is natural and something we have to get through and it was a few years for me. First i just stopped seeing fast food joints. To me they were empty lots. I stopped watching tv with commercials. Thank you Roku, Netflix, Amazon and HBO. Those helped. Dietitian didnt give me anything i didnt know. Read some Celiac and Nutrition books.  Things got easier when the hubby agreed the house should be gluten free. No cross contamination and no temptation. Love my crock pot and rice cooker ( going to buy an instant pot next). Hate to cook. Love fresh fruit. Steam veggies in glass bowls in microwave. Boil up dozen eggs always on hand. Found gluten free crackers and popcorn on Amazon. Just search gluten free. Key is to make a bunch of food then freeze it in meal sizes. Always having food cooked or fresh on hand helps cravings. And find favorite snacks to look forward to. All said and done the gluten-free non processed food diet has reversed my heat disease and lowered my diabeties risk. All bad numbers are normal and being 50 that is great.
    • You really do need to get tested. The earlier you catch it the less likely serious and permanent damage to your body will occur. One of the Celiac associated medical problems is osteopenia/osteoporosis because of poor mineral absorption. 
    • Yeah here you can read into getting diagnosed, if celiac then you can rest assured you know hte cure and it will just take time with the gluten free diet. The newbie 101 thread will have many of your answers. Might be worth keeping a food diary just for references for now, and if you intend to get tested you need to be eating gluten sadly.

      I used to get sick more often when eating gluten...but if you immune system is fighting one enemy on the front line it gives way for something else to sneak past it and hit you hard. So yes I would say so.....I hardly ever get sick now days with a virus.....food intolerance, reaching my personal tolerances for ceratin types of foods in a meal, or some other random quirk normally makes me sick...but these are normally just purge and go on sick....not painful for hours.
