  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Wow, I just found out that Pizza Pizza in Toronto has gluten free, egg free crust, for $3.25 extra for a medium. Can't wait to try it
  3. Thanks for the great advice, frosting also seems like a great Idea. I'll keep everyone posted about my cooking experiments. Cheers Hi Daisey, I've been experimenting with some of this recently. I agree with artgirl on the bread, except for fruitbreads which seem to be okay, just substitute a variety of egg replacers. (For example: 4 eggs required - gelatin for one, tofu for second, banana for third, egg whites or egg replacer for 4th. Also add a tsp or so of flax meal to your dry ingredients.) You might need to add some sort of frosting though, my breads seem a little dry. And make spicy cookies, with cinnamon or nutmeg or ginger. Wheat and eggs impart a flavor that's missing when you don't use them. When you add spices it's less obvious.
  4. What a great recipe, thanks, I will make it this weekend for sure Daisey
  5. Hello, can anyone help me?? I am trying to find a cookie recipe, or anything dessert like e.g cake, that does not contain EGGS, DAIRY of GLUTEN. Thanks
  6. Hang in there, I had severe D for about 2 years after being diagnosed. It turns out that I have many allergies I was unaware of, eggs, dairy, red beans, white beans and a few others. Perhaps get an allergy test now and again in a few months. You are not alone, my thoughts are with you. Also, make sure you have your own toaster!!!!!!! Daisey
  7. Canadians?

    I love Lakefield Bakery. Their pizza crust is the best, their bread is delicious and egg free...Check it out. You won't be disappointed
  8. Canadians?

    [Welcome, I am Canadian also (Toronto). Double check the caramel issue. I believe diet coke is o.k because caramel in Canada/U.S is gluten free or must be labelled with gluten if it is in the product. Let us know how it goes. quote name='Rachiebaby' date='Dec 4 2006, 08:22 PM' post='242493'] I noticed this thread hasn't actually been posted for a while but I thought I would say hi anyways. I'm from Saskatchewan, Canada and I was just diagnosed this morning with Celiac Disease. I was online doing a bit of research (I won't be seeing a nutritionist for at least three months unless I admit myself into the hospital, and that just ain't gonna happen) to see what I can do for myself, what to avoid and so on, when I came across this site. It's been very informative and has helped with how incredibly overwhelmed I feel at the moment. I was out shopping with my mom this afternoon trying to find some food that I can eat, and it just become so clear to me how different my life has to be from now on. I'm an admitted Diet Coke junkie and I've read a few posts about how Diet Coke has gluten in the caramel coloring..yikes! Such a lifestyle adjustment. Anyways, good to say hi. Talk to you all later!
  9. I am so sorry that that happened to you. I have had the same intense pain. Sometimes when the pain is so intense, an antispasmotic, or a tranquilizer like ativan may help. Check with your M.D. Recently, I was so sick with d and vomiting that I gave myself a hernia!!!!!!!! quote name='Electra' date='Dec 1 2006, 06:16 PM' post='241493'] Well I ate Ritz Crackers again trying to get a reaction because I had my nerve test scheduled today and I NEVER got to have the test. I had to call the ambulance from the dr's office parking lot because I thought I was dying. The pain in the upper part of my stomach was so unreal that I could barely breath! I was transported by ambulance to the hospital. Directly before the attack started I went to the bathroom and it was (as usual) extremely soft. Then the stomach pain begun and I still can feel like twitching and muscle movement down my vaginal cavity and my colan!! Anyone else ever have "SEVERE" abdominal pain with Celiac?
  10. Cold All Of The Time....

    Hi there, I am always freezing. I sleep with a heating pad every night. I know it sounds nuts, but I am truly cold. My thyroid is fine. I have always been cold, but after going gluten free--it is even worse. Sometimes in July and August I have to wear a sweater!!!!!! So Shawn, bundle up, baby, it's cold outside.
