  1. I am hoping this time, Elizabeth's focus is not on the "gluten-free diet" as being a "diet to lose weight" we shall see how it goes...
  2. YES! Igg is a great product and very helpful in healing the lining of the gut. It's one of my favorite supplements. Happy healing
  3. I was going to suggest Elana's Pantry too, but it looks like nasalady already has it covered! Elana's Pantry is my favorite for grain-free/casein free/soy free recipes. They are really simple to make too! Hope you can find one you like!
  4. Really interesting! Thanks for sharing. It shows that we should be eating REAL food, and not man-made foods from a package.
  5. Eggs Bother Anyone ?

    I cannot tolerate eggs, either. They upset my stomach. I have no problems with chicken or any other meats though.
  6. I actually just posted this website on another blog too.... http://www.elanaspantry.com/ I've become obsessed with Elana's Pantry lately...All the desserts are so easy to make and are gluten free, grain free, corn free, soy free, and most all dairy free.....and yummy!! She makes a lot of her dessert recipes with almond flour.
  7. What Do You Eat...

    Have you heard of www.elanaspantry.com ?? All her recipes are gluten free, most are dairy free, soy free, corn free, grain free. They are all delicious and super easy to make...not to mention they actually resemble the real-deals! She has a ton of recipes on her website, so there is plenty of variety. Hang in there--you'll realize sooner or later that there really are countless options of food you can eat and truly enjoy!
  8. Is it okay to use bulk bins at places like Whole Foods for nuts and dried fruit? Do you guys do it or is this a no-no? And if not, where can I safely get raw, organic nuts? Do they have packaged ones online? I am pretty sensitive anyways, as I am sure many of you are, so I am thinking I need to be more careful... I know they separate the granolas from the nuts there (and probably at Trader Joes too). I have been nibbling on some raisins I got there the other day, which were located next to the malt balls, and just realized why I have been having a reaction. So, just wondering what you guys do? Thanks!!
  9. What is everyone's favorite gluten free shampoo and conditioner? I'm looking for something I can get at the grocery store or Target or something. (Not Dove though....it burns and makes my head itch!! ) I was using Herbal Essence, but found out mine was not gluten free... Favorites? Least favorites?
  10. I was just wondering how many people on here have trouble with all grains and find that they do best on a grain-free diet? Is this common among Celiacs--like does your body think that anything that even remotely resembles gluten is hard to digest? Or is this temporary and gluten free grains can eventually be reintroduced? Thanks!
  11. I have never had problems with my hair. I went strictly gluten free in May/June of this summer. My hair started falling out in June/July and it is now October, and I have lost a significant amount of hair, and it is not letting up. Anyone ever experienced hair loss after going gluten free? Any ideas on what might be causing it? I had my ferritin, thyroid, amino acids, and adrenal glands/hormone panel checked out and everything looked fine. Also, I don't believe it is Alopecia Areata, because it is all over hair shedding, not in patches. Is there a vitamin deficiency or other food allergy I should test for (even though I am on the Paleo diet)? THANKS so much for any help you could offer!! Hair loss is no fun ....
  12. Thank you both for your answers. Sue--that was a really helpful response! Thank you!
  13. I just found out I have bacterial dysbiosis, even though I am taking probiotics, digestive enzymes and other things for the GI tract and am having protein malabsorptions. What causes it and what is usually the treatment? Also, what is the best diet for this--the Paleo diet? Thanks!
  14. That's so amazing!!! Thanks for sharing your experience!!!!
  15. I was just wondering if you lived in a gluten shared kitchen or an entirely gluten free kitchen, and if you've noticed a difference? I live in a gluten free kitchen, and have noticed I always get glutened somehow in a shared kitchen. Maybe I'm just super sensitive . Wanted to hear your experiences!
