  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. So what's the deal with casein? I've read that its molecular structure is somewhat similar to that of gluten. How many people on this board are casein intolerant? Also, how common is lectin intolerance? I've read a little about it and am wondering if people who are gluten intolerant may also have varying degrees of lectin intolerances.
  3. Quite honestly, this is the story of my life...mostly. Back in the U.S., though.
  4. I would imagine you'd also have less of an appetite considering the fact that celiac causes malaborption and therefore constant hunger in a lot of people.
  5. My mouth gets irritated after about half an hour. After that, I get a series of GI symptoms.
  6. Yeah, I glutened myself too just a few hours ago. I feel like breaking something.
  7. I just throw raw olive oil on top of my already served rice. I eat it like tomato sauce(in moderation of course).
  8. Thank you for your suggestions -- I'll take them into consideration. You're absolutely right about the fact that I don't have to take care of anyone and how that makes life easier. I won't know what it's like until it's my turn to experience it.
  9. If you're not allergic, try throwing some peanuts in the salad. Good stuff.
  10. Hahahahah cool .
  11. Throw some olive oil in your rice, then. It'll taste great!
  12. Legumes: chick peas(garbanzos), kidney beans, lentils, etc.... They're easy to prepare -- just eat them the way you would rice: whole and boiled along with spices and salt. Be sure to soak them overnight and rinse them well before cooking if you buy them dry. If you have no allergies to legumes(especially lentils), they can become your staple. Vegetables and meats are good too.
  13. Is a salad that hard to make, though? I mean...after all, vegetables are naturally gluten free. So are all tubers, lots of grains and pseudo cereals(quinoa, rice, corn), all legumes, and all meats. I personally don't bake. Most of the food I eat I boil myself. I dunno, I find that my own food tastes better than junk food, but that's me, so I won't impose my view of things on you. I get the impression that most people feel obligated to cook meats in an oven or on a grill. You can boil those too. EDIT ------ By the way, if we're going to talk about healthy foods, we really should exclude fruits. Fruits are nature's candy, and while they're a good alternative to what we call "junk food", they're still not particularly healthy as they're mostly sugar. Of course, it also depends on what fruit we're talking about. I mean, nutritionally, the avocado is superior to, say, an apple, but most people don't walk around with a Hass avocado in their pocket, now do they.
  14. Can you eat olive oil?
