  1. Oh, nobody is saying it won't look disgusting. Manure will hard pack about five inches deep, so dense that it'll even be waterproof. We've drifted off-topic for the thread and WAY off topic for the board.
  2. Despite what Chipotle says, no such thing.
  3. Grains are just different part of a grass plant. They've got a higher nutrient and calorie density that makes them easier to transport and feed (and easier for the cattle to gain/maintain weight). There will be some differences in the meat and milk, but nothing that will bother your health. Personally, grain fed tastes better. There can be health complications for cattle in either feeding program. Too rich of a diet (too much grain!) can get the bacteria in an animal's gut out of whack and lead to a pretty swift death, which ranchers obviously try to avoid...still, it can happen. Grasses (namely corn stalks or the many different sorghum varieties) in drougthy weather (or subjected to an early cold snap) can produce an alarming amount of cyanide containing compounds...also something ranchers want to avoid.
  4. Dr. Oz Show About Gluten

    Anybody getting their health "information" from Dr. Oz or Facebook should be regarded with pity.
  5. Lava diarrehia. Sometimes with constipation at the same time. Yeah, I didn't think it was possible either, but I'm on the cutting edge of bathroom science. Boldly going where no man will admit to having gone before... "Either it'll kill me or I'll kill someone, whichever comes first" ...I'm stealing that.
  6. I can tell that you're new here. Hahaha No, really, it's going to take a LOT more description before you get anywhere near too graphic.
  7. I just go straight for the TMI. "imagine having the dry heaves...only with liquid fire. Now imagine that coming out the other end."
  8. I'm sure it's horrible for your insides, especially in a weakened state, but a cup of coffee can work miracles for me.
  9. Yes; it's likely that you haven't completely healed. THAT said, a month into the diet and it's just as likely that you're still getting glutened by products you think are safe. It took me a few months to figure out that 'reading the label' isn't enough (depending on the company). I will say in this case you were almost certainly glutened when you ate out. Eating out = Russian roulette. Unless it's a resteraunt that caters to celiacs (and even then!) you're gonna get glutened sooner or later. You may be incredibly lucky and visit the same resteraunt five times symptom free (and being symptom free doesn't necessarily mean that the food was safe!), then get nailed on the sixth.
  10. Pizza crusts freeze rather nicely! Whip up a bunch of gluten free crusts and toss 'em in the freezer...then make the kids sauce and top 'em. Sure, you'll have a mess to clean up, but all you'll have to do for prep work is preheat the oven and fetch a crust out of the freezer.
  11. ...and heaven help them if the bathroom is occupied when you need it: there is no waiting! (and the neighbors thought it was bad when the DOG was out in the yard doing it's business)
  12. When I get hives they tend to move around...start on the outside of my upper arm, move to the inside then my armpits and down my sides. It usually happens around wheat harvest time. (coming up at the end of the month for this area. /sarcasticglee)
  13. I agree...the gluten free bagels are great anyway.
  14. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  15. Like others have said, I'm sure your sister can probably look back and remember times when she had symptoms and didn't know what to attribute them to. After I found out I had CS (which only happened after my mother was diagnosed) I had an "Oh, DUH" moment when I realized that there was a reason why my guts would start burning after finishing a sandwich... I've blamed the college diet (i.e. beer, pizza, and ramen; no wonder I got so sick so fast...) for pushing the symptoms "over the edge" from inconveniences to serious problems. Looking back, I'd been having 'problems' for 4-5 years before then.
