  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Origin Of Celiacs?

    Irish/English/Mohegan/Swiss I see a lot of Irish on here
  3. Extremley Sleepy

    I have no insight on helping you with the reaction, but are you still getting enough protein since that mean braut? That might help?
  4. Se Connecticut Dining!

    A communitymember mentioned a bakery in Portland that is Celiac-owned. She said this is near Middletown.
  5. The same thing-- I took a good look at the itinerary and wasn't that impressed. It seemed like everything was simply about sweets and I was hoping for more than that. I still might do Sunday (the cooking demo day) which has the theme of cooking for the holidays. I'll have to check if I've missed the registration, but if I do go, I'll post a reaction!
  6. The times I've had emotional reactions at a grocery store have been when I'm shopping with someone who is not gluten-free! They can go and grab pretty much whatever they want while I'm reading labels and passing by a lot of aisles. On my own or with my mother who is also gluten-free, passing by so many of the aisles feels like a relief! And there aren't any gluteny items going in the cart as a distraction, or even TALK of those items! Also, if this helps, my mom and I always laugh because we go to the HEALTH food store to buy our JUNK food! We buy our meats, veggies, fruits, nuts and beans at the chains Stop & Shop and Big Y, but we go to the local health food stores for the more expensive, specialty treats like gluten-free cookies (Nana's! EnjoyLife!), Lara Bars, FruitaBu... That's our system! Hope it helps
  7. And then, as far as I can tell, the FDA reversed their decision within 3 months? Gotta wonder what kind of payoff or convincing could happen in three months. Said best below: "Recently, the Corn Refiners Association announced that they are launching a $30 million advertising campaign that is aimed at convincing consumers that HFCS is a natural compound, fundamentally the same as honey. Of course, unlike honey, HFCS is the product of a complex, chemical-intensive refining process that takes place in an industrial setting, but why quibble? Strangely, the FDA has agreed with them. Unfortunately, rather than convince me that HFCS is all-natural, the FDA's stance has made me seriously question the integrity of the federal government when it comes to food purity."

  8. Amen to Trillum's post. It is in EVERYTHING! Check mayonaise. And the one that makes me laugh, check Snapple that claims to be "all natural" and "made from the best stuff on Earth." Just shows that the corn industry has money to spend on commercials. Don't get me started on how our government subsidizes huge agrobusiness in corn, thereby skirting NAFTA Which then leads to ruining the Mexican economy and diet. And people complain about undocumented Mexican citizens coming here to try to make money. A pause in my rant, here's something to read: http://www.nutraingredients-usa.com/Regula...atural-says-FDA
  9. Is anyone going this year? Has anyone ever been before? Is it worthwhile? I'm thinking of only going on Sunday. http://www.theglutenfreelifestyle.com/Glut...it/schedule.php
  10. Se Connecticut Dining!

    Hello! I'm new and this is my first post! I wanted to share with anyone in the SE Conn area that I have two favorite restaurants that are very kind about discussing allergy issues and even altering the items on their menu to accomodate! 1.) MANGETOUT: an organic, locally grown restaurant on State St. in New London. Their menu changes everyday, so be sure to call or check it on the website. www.mangetoutorganic.com 2.) MILAGRO: this is my all-time favorite restaurant. Located in Stonington Burrough. The owner, Mr. Zavala, is very friendly and has a son with allergy issues, so he understands the need and is happy to accomodate. The food is SOOO good! It's no burrito or chimichanga place-- it has REAL Mexican food! Delicious! Hope it helps if you haven't found these spots already on your own! I'd love to hear about more!
