  1. Berry Kix cereal and coffee!
  2. Yes, I've done my best to de-gluten my kitchen and I have separate butter, pb, etc. My worry is that I can't trust package labels. Sooooo many products at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, etc. say they are gluten free but are not certified. Can I trust these? I know lots of companies run their gluten free products on the same lines as their products containing gluten. I know just because something has gluten free ingredients, that doesn't mean it hasn't been contaminated. Wal-Mart, for instance, labels so many of their things as gluten free. I can't believe that Wal-Mart goes to any lengths to segregate their products. Feel like I'm eating through a mine field. I try my best to only eat things that specify dedicated lines, etc., but I'm going a little crazy. For instance, all the Chex that say they are gluten free, I swear I had a reaction from the cinnamon ones. But I feel like I can eat the Rice ones without issue. FRUSTRATING.
  3. Hi everyone! I was diagnosed almost a year ago and my six month bloodwork still showed my levels at 150 or greater. This was frustrating as I thought I had been eating a strictly gluten free diet. Even more frustrating, my doc wanted me to revisit the dietician. I am a very Type A personality and my father was diagnosed 10 years ago, so I thought I knew what I was doing. The dietician said I should only eat the obvious fresh produce and meats but anything else should be gluten-free certified from the GFCO. Is anybody doing this? It just seems highly impractical. I went to get more bloodwork today, so we'll see what the results are, but I guess I'm thinking I should be eating from the GFCO's list if my levels haven't improved. Ugh. What say you?
