  4. Rash Getting Worse?

    Gluten Tag, I have DH also and mine started to go away within the first week of being gluten-free maybe u r missing something and r not 100% gluten-free? Maybe ur cookware or utensil's and also...... Check ur hair care or deoderant, toothpaste or any lotions or face cosmetics, hair spray and so on cuz when I'm 100% gluten-free my DH is completely gone unless I get Glutened ! Good Luck! God Bless Belinda
  5. Why would they of told you to take her off before they did any testing is crazy then make her go back No way would I go back not worth to have it just on paper if she is doing well and you already have her gluten free keep her there. If you haven't started the pills won't do that much good due to her consuming gluten there are for like being gluten free and eating at Grandma's and maybe she has not made her kitchen completely safe but cooked gluten-free then the pills would help, but far as taking the pills and eating whatever don't mix my son tried it when they first hit the market and tried taking 2 and eating bread like the health food store told him but he was reallly sick .so not sure if it is worth the 20-30 dollars a bottle to just try to find out. It is more for being gluten-free but someone being around with gluten foods then it helps you not to get any gluten in your system. Not sure if they would do the same effect putting them in something so ask your health food store for more info they could prolly answer the effect. I hope this helps and good luck! Belinda
  6. Linda, Welcome aboard..... If you are the "MIAN COOK" do what I did if he wants to eat that no good food then he can eat out! Other wise for soy sauce he can still have it just get the Great Value one at Wal Mart there is no differance, except safe for you if you are not soy sensative. Like alot have already posted the flours are the biggest problem so switch them to brown rice is the best for baking like pizza's, muffins and so on as far as thickning for gravy I use Tapioca flour or corn startch. And if he has just eaten some gluten traced foods make sure he brushes his teeth and washes his face before you kiss him! If he converted over slowly he wouldn't even miss his old yucky foods lol my hubby couldn't even tell his pasta was dif lol If you don't tell them they have no clue ! Except for bread there is no comparision found yet, but if he eats it he makes it. Good Luck with all and keep us posted / if you need some recp's I have some good ones too he won't be able to even tell! God Bless Belinda
  7. I saw where one posted *cocoa pebbles & fruity pebbles* sorry folks they r not safe Malt is in there and malt is a no no for Celiac's also if I'm not mistaken in the fruity pebbles there is a ingredient my son found that was on his list when he was 12 lol that I missed (he is 19 now) The only cereal safe in reg grocery stores is Rice checks as mentioned! Even tho they say rice is safe the rice crispy cereal contains malt and most cereal's do unless U get the saw dust tasting ones from the health food store! Except for the peanut butter ball one my hubby says is great without milk . As far as finger foods my son ate corn chips, gluten-free chetoes (great value at wal mart), gluten-free pretzels, animal cookies, He is allergic to alot of fruit's, veggies, & nuts, so we couldn't go there but he did do bananna's dipped in gluten-free chocolate on a stick and then freeze and slice was a big treat he likes, also we made pretzels covered in white chocolate he always helped and made it fun for him to eat later. I make puppy chow just out of the rice chex and gluten-free peanut buter and the rest of ingrd's r gluten-free as well noone could tell the dif. peanut buter fudge squares is another . I'm not sure ,but if anyone is as sensative as my son he react's to the "Gluten free Pantry produts that say can contain traces of soy " bread and cupcakes were a disater for him he was sick for days due to I made both in the same day If you are ever in doubt always read your labels my motto is if it doesn't say gluten-free and no traces of any of the bad stuff I purchase that one! I have some great recp's I have converted over just not mastered a great bread yet, so if interested let me know. (pizza-mufffins-corn dogs-pumpkin roll-fudge-to name a few) Good Luck! God Bless Belinda
  8. Matt I was told enstead of my niece eating tons of crackers to try ginger teas and such for the nausea I'm with Stacy all the way if I knew then wht I know now NOW WAY would I of ever ate gluten or it's hidden friends Good Luck! Bea
  9. Marsha, I just purchased a cheap kids shampoo from wal mart and it seems to be safe so far we haven't had any reaction and we too r very sensative ppl It was only $1.88 and they have several smells lol "Suave kids 2 in 1 shampoo" not sure tho if it is completely safe so u might want to double check with company but I've read all Suave is suppose to be safe Good Luck ! Bea
  10. Yummy Pizza Toppings

    my son's fav is BBQ chicken I make it as follows: Crust: 2 cups brown rice flour 1/4 cup powder'd milk 1 cup parmesan cheese gluten-free (Great Value-Wal Mart) 1 tsp onion salt 1 tsp mrs dash salt free 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp bay leaves 1 tsp parsely flakes 1 tsp oregano flakes 1 tsp sugar (optinl) mix this all together in mixing bowl then add wet ingrd's Wet Ingrd's: 1 egg-beaten into water and oil 1 tblsp olive oil ( I use 2 makes it not so dry) 1/3 cup water is wht it called for but I have to use more where I live it almost takes another 1/3 cup just add slowly til u can make a sticky free ball and then I devide into 4 balls and place each in seran wrap til I'm ready to make into pizza's,cuz we each like diff toppings BBQ Chicken: 6 chciken tenders cooked in butter or marg til golden brown add gluten-free ketchup,a lil gluten-free warchester sauce,lil gluten-free soy,lil gluten-free liquid smoke, 2 tblsp brown sugar and simmer til ready to use then place mixture on pizza crust and topwith gluten-free cheese (we use pizza blend Great Value) Bake til Golden brown in 400 preheated oven : ENJOY Bea
  11. Ok now I have a huge ? how r they when they too contain Alcohol I also have been searching for good hair care and only found out that children shampoo's r alcohol free . So did u call them at dove and ask? If they contain alcohol the owner of our local heath food store says none r safe Thanks Bea
  12. Hey All.... Just a lil of my own experament with Mc'D's I hadn't cheated in any way and have been super careful not to get Gluttened, BUT I did try eating at local Mc'D's just a few weeks back and man-o-man they r not safe by no means, even if u r careful wht u order,my son use to work at one and he was passing out cooking the fries and working the grill so go figure Yes he has Celiac Spru! So if anyone wants to try it's is your own choice, just be careful I aslo got cross contamination at our local Wendy's safe meanu, so it is by our choice if we ever do eat out again we r staying with the only safe eat joint we have never been glutened and it is Chili's Good Luck To All! Bea
  13.

  14. Christina, Well Gratz on finding out the problem With most doc's they have no clue to this gluten-free world so if it were me I'd just keep on doing wht u r doing and if the opportunity ever comes up while visiting this doc I'd sure get the point across lol I'm so Happy for u and ur's that the gluten-free world was your answer Good Luck !
