  1. wow, so much to learn... thanks for the help though I appreciate it - I will defo try the cereal and see if it is a good sub.... I just like an alternative to rice, especially as I am also allergic to dairy & soy - so I drink rice milk, eat rice cheese, use rice butter, eat plain rice, etc etc sometimes its just nice to have a change... I found AMY's ready meals today at Safeway - I am so happy it will be great to take ready made meals to work again......... Thanks again Kati
  2. I have read that it is semolina based but then another website described it as a wheat product. I love couscous and would be thrilled if in fact I can still eat it.... Thanks in advance Kati
  3. SadiesMomma - I sound like you.... I am allergic to bananas, potatoes, corn (in any form) pectin, brocolli, cauliflower, buckwheat, wheat, soy, dairy, and the list goes on...... in reality I seriously think I have celiac disease, apparently my Mother said we were all allergic to milk when we were kids (all 6 of her kids) grrr she only told me this on Sunday.... I still eat bannana's and some of the veggies, even though the allergist told me that I am allergic to them, its just that there is a limit to not eating... lol... I am going to avoid gluten from now on, and dairy of course.. "rice milk is my friend" I will see how it goes.... I am fairly certain that I can control my "IBS" like symptoms this way.... Thanks for the congrats on the kiddies...
  4. I stumbled onto this forum and was hoping someone might be able to help me self-diagnose. I have been to a couple of different holistic Docs who tested me and said I was allergic to wheat, barley, corn, etc etc. Anyway, I suffered through a 2 year long bout of gas, gurling tummy, stomach pains and loose bm's... it cleared up for a while once I went ot an allergist who told me to avoid the wheat and stuff... anyway in November my stomach problems came back with a vengence... and it has been constant since then - just terrible. I do not want a diagnosis mentioning any "disease" on my medical records as we are really close to completing an international adoption and that would look bad on our medical reports... so I picked up a magazine in Sprouts on Saturday and it described exactly what I was going through.... so I guess what I am looking for is confirmation of sorts that this could be the answer to my problems.... any advice, information etc would be great.. thanks
