  1. I forgot to add he is also allergic to eggs, cooked or raw, which apparently ruins almost all store made bread... and cakes... and cookies... everything! Poor kiddo. Thanks for your responses, you confirmed what I already thought - underlying condition!!!
  2. I have celiac disease, and am very comfortable in my gluten free lifestyle. However a good friend of ours has a three yr old who was diagnosed with more allergies than I can remember, and now they have absolutely no clue what to feed him other than fruit! He is not diagnosed celiac as of yet, but who knows... so he does eat gluten. He is allergic to soy, dairy, chicken sometimes, all tree nuts, peanuts, corn, sunflower anything, and a few others I can't remember. I told them I would poke around here to see if anyone else had similar allergies, but can't seem to find anything. Any thoughts? So far they have bought a gallon of hemp milk (never heard of it) and are feeding him fruit cups, applesauce, and one finger food like teddy grahams that seems to meet the criteria. Any help you can offer would be VERY appreciated!!!
  3. Wanted to let everyone know what I found - I am soooo happy!!! Atlanta Braves and ARAMARK Announce New Gluten-Free Concession Stand at Turner Field The Atlanta Braves and ARAMARK, the exclusive food and beverage provider at Turner Field, have announced the opening of a dedicated gluten-free* concession stand for fans with Celiac Disease. The location opens Friday, Sept. 4, behind Section 106, and will feature all-beef franks, sirloin beef burgers, chicken sandwiches, chips, popcorn, brownies, cookies, soda, water and gluten-free RedBridge beer. "In response to increasing requests for healthier and gluten-free options from fans, the Braves and ARARMARK are proud to unveil this new concessions option at Turner Field," said Ron Ranieri, ARAMARK General Manager at Turner Field. "The gluten-free stand is part of the Braves and ARAMARK's overall commitment to offer menu options that allow all fans, regardless of dietary restrictions, to enjoy the ultimate ballpark experience."

  4. G-f National Restaurants?

    I meet my hubby at z pizza regularly, as long as I call ahead they always make me a gluten-free pizza! I will tell you it's definitely not comparable to the pizza I used to make at my own shop I ran, but I figure I can't complain - I get to eat at a restaurant that has never contaminated me and enjoy a lunch with my hubby and kids! They do have a number of toppings, and the staff seem to really get it about cc and gluten. I am uber sensitive and have yet to have any issues eating there! I have had numerous issues at Chili's btw, you really need to be careful everywhere! Good luck!
  5. Happy birthday!

  6. New To celiac disease

    Just adding my two cents here, but I have always had the best luck going on my local grocery store's website, be it Publix or Wegmans or Winn Dixie, and if I don't find a gluten free listing of their store brand products I email them and ask for one.... and I get a new one every six months, just to be sure. That has cut my grocery bills in half - really! Also a warning - Boar's Head is gluten free, but beware of the deli hand that doesn't wipe the previous scraps off the slicer before slicing your gluten-free meat... residual gluten got me twice before I became "that customer" who always asks for the slicer to be wiped clean before slicing my meat! Good luck!
  7. Just Diagnosed.

    My advice is to get on the wegman's website or the glutenfreeregistry.com site and get the list of gluten free foods wegman's brand offers. My family lives near a wegman's, I don't, but every time I go up north to visit we get a updated list in advance and I do all my shopping there. And as far as food aisles go, I make tons of different kinds of food at home instead of buying premade. When I go past a great smelling chinese restaurant, I go home and make an awesome batch of teriyaki ginger chicken, or I just grab a packet of A Taste of Thai seasoned noodles. I make pizza at home, my whole family is gluten free and most of our guests don't even realize they are not getting gluten! I guess I am just saying keep your head up, and when you really miss something check around, I find most times I can find a gluten free version somehow! I write to companies like Frito Lay and grocery stores every six months and get an updated gluten free list, I started doing that because I couldn't survive on fruit and plain burgers... and I needed my cool ranch doritos and crunchy cheetos! Good luck!!! And remember, you can always have little guilty pleasures that are gluten free, like cheetos or chocolate, just make sure you are eating gluten free! Always read every label!
  8. I eat shrimp from my local publix supermarket on a bimonthly basis, and have never been sick from them. I am really really super sensitive to gluten, I actually get sick within a few minutes of eating the stuff. I do devein my shrimp... I also eat tilapia, shark, halibut and haddock on a regular basis and none have made me sick. I do eat canned tuna but no other canned fish. I hope this helps you out!
  9. Just wanted to let everyone know I went shopping today for hoisin and oyster sauce and found that Kame brand has wheat in both! Guess they have changed ingredients since the earlier post was written.... I am going to try to find some dynasty sauces at our health store!
  10. Tomato Sauce? Help!

    Whoa, I never knew that! Explains why I can only stomach tomatoes and potatoes from the whole group, and I cook the heck out of both of them! Thanks for the info!!!! Amazing how much I think I know about food but really don't!
  11. Atlanta Gluten Free Bakery?

    Well, I got one response so far... www.metrobakery.com will make a gluten free wedding cake, starting at 5.50 per person... more than I can spend. We are already married, did it alone, this is for the reception celebration. It's not formal, and I just would rather spend the money on something more fun. I found a local bakery that will make me a beautiful gluteny sheet cake for under $100, and I am going to make myself a gluten free cupcake. Thanks for all the help tho guys!
  12. Tomato Sauce? Help!

    Unfortutely I had the same reactions to tomato sauces until I realized if I simmer it for a few hours on the stove or in the crockpot it doesn't affect me. My mom thinks it's because some of the acid cooks out over time... whatever the reason I am glad, it's the only way I can have spaghetti sauce, even home made! Good luck!
  13. I bake using The Gluten Free Pantry's All Purpose Flour, stuff is awesome as far as I'm concerned. My friends never have a clue they are eating gluten free, even desserts! They make many great mixes also, theirs is the only bread mix I have found I like. You can use this flour as an exact replacement usually.
  14. Help!

    I would also try different recipes for chili, it can be really nutritious depending on the ingredients. I have been trying to think of what else I ate on a regular basis... chili with black beans and ground beef or ground turkey, quinoa with brown sugar almost every morning, lots of salad with ginger dressings, my husband got a fryer for christmas and made lots of fried chicken by just rolling bite sized pieces in my fave Gluten-Free flour and some spices, lots of fritos, fresh fruits, homemade icees, I baked tomatoes with broccoli and garlic, lots of potato skins,invented a bunch of marinades for meats, lots of beef stew, hamburger soup, crockpot roast beefs, and a bunch of different cookie recipes I was trying, some yummy some nasty! I had to eat a TON of stuff to support two babies, and I was borderline anemic the whole time too. I ate steak once a week towards the end there! I hope this gives you some ideas, I know exactly what it feels like to be starving and not have anything to satisfy your hunger! I remember standing in my kitchen munching ice because I had nothing to eat at that moment... HA! Again, best of luck for a happy and healthy pregnancy!
  15. Help!

    Sweet Potato Casserole - EXCELLENT DISH! Potato mix: 4 C mashed cooked sweet potato 1 C milk (can be omitted for dairy free) 1 egg 1/2 C sugar 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp nutmeg Topping: 3/4 C crushed gluten-free cornflakes 1/2 C brown sugar 1/4 C raisins 4 Tbs melted butter Combine all potato mix ingredients and bake in 11x13 greased casserole dish for 20 minutes at 400. Combine all topping ingredients. When potato mix is done, spread topping mix over potato mix and return to oven. Bake 10 minutes more, just until browned. I don't use the raisins much, my mom loves them in it tho.
