  1. Thank you! I think I will give this a try.
  2. Thank you for the link. I made a note in my phone on what it may also be referred to as so when Im at the store I have the notes with me. Thanks again
  3. I am in search of dry cured cottage cheese. I have never used it before but have some recipes that require it. Push comes to shove Im sure I can get it at Whole Foods next time I go to Henderson but we don't go often b/c its an hour in a half drive. Is there a substitute for this item? It is from one of the SCD cookbooks I have. I am not completely on that type of diet but the diet goes along good with the way I do eat and my other food problems. I have tried looking dry curd cottage cheese up but can't really find any information on it. Any input greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
  4. If you/he can do corn then Corn Tortillas are really helpfull (when I used them a lot I got the White Corn not Yellow). They work better if you heat them up some (I used a small pan on the stove) then make you lunch with them if you don't they tend to crack/break. I did cheese, meat, different seeds or nuts and carrots (those matchstick ones in the bag). I just fold it like a taco instead of a wrap and put it in a plastic container. Can do peanut butter/jelly pretty much anything you'd do on bread. *Hormel Natural Choice -- Packaged deli meat labeled gluten free *Castle Wood Reserve deli meat is also labled gluten free (I have only seen it at Sam's Club) *John Soules Foods has bagged meat (chicken, beef) that is labeled gluten free (Seen at WalMart and Sam's Club). I've warmed it up and put in salads or with rice and cheese. *Canned Chicken (I get the Sam's Club brand) I use cottage cheese though instead of mayo *Rice (Uncle Ben's has some that are labeled gluten free and Minute Rice) -- can make ahead of time and eat cold with something else *Pudding Cups *String Cheese I know you said no salads... but I didn't really care for them that much but you learn to like the things that you "can" eat A salad dressing I found that I like is Lite House brand Homestyle Ranch. I add carrots, seeds/nuts, meat even rice pretty much anything that mixes in so its not "just" salad... even corn chips (I use mission) I break some up in the salad sometimes if I need something else in it. Dinner Leftovers are ALWAYS good =) A lot are good cold so no need to use the microwave. An easy dinner that I found recently is Lasagna using De Boles noodles they make a Lasagna Noodle that you don't have to cook ahead of time just make it up and it cooks in the oven. I made one last week and it was good cold or heated up. Good Luck
  5. I don't have a Costco near me in AZ but my mom in Southern CA said that she has seen a couple Gluten Free things. One of the things she told me was Bob's Red Mill Quinoa. My SIL goes to the same Costco and said that that carry Organic Chicken. I think it all depends on the Costco's location and what people are asking for in that area.
  6. So sorry about the experience. Hope you get to feeling better soon and can enjoy some of your trip before it is done. It makes you wonder sometimes what the person is thinking when they suggest somewhere that is surrounded by gluten and they are even related to you. Personally I don't know what I would have done since you were gone on a trip... I know if it were a situation local to home I would have probably stayed home or gone for a short period of time and see how it went (I always eat ahead of time and bring something small in my bag). Ha even going to Sam's Club with my husband and parents they always feel bad getting a hot dog or pizza and I tell them its fine... One of the last times I had to sit at the table next to them b/c the smell was really strong and I started to feel sick which was odd for me. Hope you were able to enjoy the rest of your trip.
  7. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  8. This was just posted the other day. If you look down the page where the recipe is right after it she talks about subs http://glutenfreeeasily.com/crustless-glut...ee-pumpkin-pie/ "If you want to make this pie dairy-free, a dairy-free milk like coconut milk should work just fine." Good Luck
  9. Looking For Grapeseed Oil

    Hi. I went by the last place that I could get Grapeseed Oil from in town on the way back to work and they carry: Napa Valley Naturals http://www.worldpantry.com/cgi-bin/ncommer...;prrfnbr=132799 Has anyone used this before? Thanks Edit: I just got my copy of The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook by Elana Amsterdam and am excited to try it out this weekend. I guess I can just use Butter instead (since Grapeseed Oil is what she is replacing butter wtih) http://www.elanaspantry.com/cookbook/
  10. Hi. I live in a smaller town so not too many stores to pick from. Has anyone tired and or know if the following are gluten free or how well they work for cooking/baking? Grapeseed Oil that I could find in town: La Tourangelle Sadaf I am thinking about ordering online or waiting about 2 more weeks till I will be in CA visiting family to get Spectrum Grapeseed Oil. Any input on what brand you use is greatly appreciated. Thanks =)
  11. That is really cool! I hope ours starts having gluten free products soon. My parents live in CA and went to the new Target in Brea by the Mall and they were saying that they saw Betty Crocker Mixes and some other things there.
  12. I use to use McCormick's Chili Powder all the time when my husband and I made Tacos yummmm. The only reason I stopped using it was b/c I went Nightshade Free. I never had a problem though gluten wise with the Chili Powder.
  13. Thank you for the posts about the book. The book looks really neat and the price was good compared to other books. I bought teff the other week but got the whole grain by accident so have to grind it to flour and try it. Never tried Buckwheat will have to try that soon. WOW the pizza looks really good and very easy to make. I am printing off the recipe to try very soon. Thank you so much! I saved the site to look through more later. My main flours I have are Sourghum, White Rice Flour and Brown Rice Flour. I haven't tried the Sweet Rice Flour yet just because I live in a smaller town and cannot find it anywhere and haven't driven to Las Vegas yet to get it at Whole Foods (hopefully they have it). I was just in CA visiting family and looked at Henry's for it but nope. Sweet Potato Starch... very interesting. I will have to keep an eye out for it. I know we do not have any stores like that near me but will look for it. Thanks Thanks again for the posts. I will take a look at the SCD thread on here.
  14. Hi. I was just wondering if anyone knew or had pointers on baking without starches? I can't have tapioca starch/flour (similar side effects like gluten) and arrowroot seem to not agree with me. I cut out Nightshades due to reactions so that eliminated Potato Starch Yellow Corn bothers me and Corn in general makes me bloat and too much = problems (sorry TMI). Originally I was doing Potato Starch and Corn Starch but now with eliminating Potatoes I am just left with Corn Starch. I made some waffles the other weekend and tested out subbing all the starches with corn and that was a no no it tasted normal BUT... did not react very well to it. What do people do that cannot have or do starches? Do you just sub with more flour? Any input is greatly appreciated Thank you!!
