  1. Lentils

    My local grocery store sells two brands of bagged lentils. They look similar but one states it was made on the same lines as wheat products and the other says glutenfree. We can't be too careful! Even gluten-free lentils can be hard on your stomach if you aren't used to them. I like Tolerant's bean and lentil noodles. They are expensive but good.
  2. I wouldn't use the things you can't get clean- the cast iron and the cooking pot. The rest should be fine as long as you clean them well.
  3. I find a lot of gluten-free foods on Amazon, too. Sometimes it is cheaper on there than buying them at my local health food stores.
  4. I never ate the ones that were made from the wheat ingredients, but, when I was in Europe I found the gluten-free foods there to be WAY better than the ones here. The ones I ate were all vegan, as well. That's harder to find in the US.
  5. Glutened By Amy's?

    Just thought I would chime in to say that I do not get sick from Amy's food BUT I have never really eaten the ones that say "no gluten ingredients." Plus, I also only eat the dairy-free ones.
  6. I Cheated Today! :(

    If you have Celiac Disease you do damage regardless of how severe or not your reactions are. You cannot even fully heal if you are cheating. Plus, it makes those around you think that your disease, if you have it, is no big deal. It is a huge deal.
  7. You should be on the diet for sure but your husband should only be on it if he feels better. There is no reason not to do the diet. . .it can be a choice for people who aren't allergic and who do not have Celiac Disease. I bet he'd feel better- most people do! Good luck!
  8. I find the chocolate stuff needs longer, too. It just depends on the brand, usually!
  9. There is no way I'd eat something that said may contain traces of wheat! As for the facility thing- it is up to you. When eating out you may need to tell them to clean the grill, etc., depending on what you are ordering. Any amount of gluten will harm you, even if you do not see the same symptoms. Good luck, and be careful!
  10. Scholorships

    I have never seen any, but it would be a good essay for applying to other ones.
  11. Gluten Free Casein Free At Restaurants

    I am a gluten-free vegan, so, I usually compare allergy menus if they have them. Sometimes places will make special food for me, too. It is harder but if you pick the right places it can be easy!
  12. Moving Out New Issues

    You have to be serious about your food issues. Usually I just eat before going out or bring something with me to eat. That way I don't have to worry about being sick or finding nothing to eat. As for the storing of food issue- just have a set of your own things. That way they can't make comments and you know yours is in it's own container. It is hard for people who aren't used to the whole cross-contamination thing. Good luck!
  13. Grits

    Bob's Red Mill has some gluten-free grits.
  14. gluten-free/cf Pizza Ideas?

    I use Arrowhead Mills, but I do not know if they are soy free.
