  6. Trail Mix

    Personaly i dont buy anything that was manufactured on a shared line...they can tell you they scrub everything out with javex still the particles do go airbourne like it was mentioned earlier......what i do is plain and simple make your own and that way you know personaly that there will be no CC.......i take trail mix to work when i work nights eat alittle bit and your set for hours ....great 4:00am snack then the craving for a huge breakfest before bed has surpassed......be safe....make your own cheaper and you can be creative and get more ..........
  7. With my C.D i am at the other end of the scale...most people have the god forbidin "D" after there infected....i have bloating, cramping, can even expel gas for days...having a BM is out of the question for days......i have even tried eating my diet of strictly alot of water dry fruits and nuts this seems to make matters worse....i was wondering if there was a gentle herb or over the counter softener for this occassional upset...i dont want to become depended on this.....i want things to take its course.....
  8. One Handed Meals?

    Thank-you all sooooo very much.....your ideas and suggestion were amazing....think the crock pot will be the best way to go....one lid to lift... i had plastic containers i can throw the meal into...lids are soft enough and flexible enough i could manage one handed....tried it already....LOL... i am really intrested in the "hot pockets".....the recipe would be a good idea this way i can have varity of meals and not chowing on the same thing day after day....soup before the second is another great idea.....my luck... opening jars between my legs maybe more of a disaster then anything....spag sause EVERYWHERE....LOL.....once again thank-you so much for everything....off to the kitchen i go........
  9. I wasnt quite sure where to post this one exactly...heres my problem.....on Sept 25 i am having surgery on my right hand splinted from my elbow to the middle of my fingers.....3wks later i will have my left one operated on.....leaving me with about 50% in my right and zipo in my left......i need some ideas for meals being one handed...i will also be home alone.....
  10. I have been where you are now....i ate nothing but vegtables ( mother was very pleased) for 6mths all i wanted was FOOD that will satisfy my hunger like it did before i was diagnosed ....my advice to you is the approach i took....number one this site and the people who come here was the best thing that i found totaly by mistake....there very helpful and understanding...my doc called me told me i had this and said "see you in 2wks for your appointment...no direction at all....here is where i started.......the people here have all been through the ups and downs...trust me you will come across things that you just cant eat....i did....i still have days where i crave the unforbidden but reality sets in and you realize in the long run what will happen if you do eat it....number two keep a opened mind about this "new" way of eating....your taste buds are craving the old way of eatting and when you take that first bite its....OH MY ....this is not what i wanted at all.....i use alot of dried spices get things as close as i can so you kinda sorta get what you want but i do understand really all you want is that yummy taste of "real" pizza crust...i use these all the time.....there made from rice that has no taste to begin with.... i have defrosted them and i have used them frozen...mainly depends on how hungry i am....yeah they do take longer to cook and to get that pizza oven crust...well....lets just say i am still working on that...i am also lactose intolerant....if your having troubles with the cheese maybe try lactose-free...just a suggestion....be creative.....get things as close as you can no matter what it is....
  11. I work for the priniting company that owns and of course prinits Canadian Living..... due to my position i couldnt release any information about the " celiac pill" in the works there is a doc in Halifax at the University of Dalhouse who is working on a pill that we can take before eating.....we can eat anything ....quite intresting...i am sure there will be alot of people who may sign up to try this "pill" when its ready for testing.... if u can get a Canadian Living magazine October issue or going on line at www.canadianliving.com/october..... read all about this
  12. Glutenin......derived from wheat best knowen for its role with gliadin to create gluten.this is responsible for the firmness of dough in baking bread.....i would look for a different birth control.......
  13. I was just wondering if anyone has approached Medical Alert to see if Celiac disease can be put on? Someone with Celiac Disease is unable to commuincate to a medical team worst case and there unaware of this and give the paticent medication that contains gluten....mind you they will find out after the fact....personally i feel this will be beneifical for anyone that has this disease.......
  14. Pizza Pizza

    Pizza Pizza ( like Pizza Hut) now offer a gluten-free pizza crust...i have eatten it and have not gotten sick from it...worth checking out....
  15. Coconut Flour

    Heres food for thought....i purchased this flour as well.... in the same store came across a cookbook.....Cooking with coconut flour by Bruce Fife, N.D....this has been a very helpful tool for me as well.....i also cook with coconut oil...this cookbook has quick breads.....muffins...cookies...crackers....cakes...pies...pasterys...etc....one thing about this cookbook though they use alot of eggs or egg replacer.....one that i have tried is a coconut bread truly amazing!!!!
