  1. Donut

    hmmm... thanks, I'll have to look for those.
  2. Donut

    lol, um...i'm from iowa. I didn't know that wasn't a popular thing everywhere.... it is a rectangular donut with a hole at one end where they put cream filling in, then they frost it. kinda like a jelly filled donut but with cream and a different shape. I live in Missouri now, but the last one i ate was in iowa. Thanks for any help
  3. So I'm Celiac and in the craving stage of pregnancy and who ever says that you don't crave glutened food is nuts. I have had the worst craving for a creme filled frosted longjohn. I tried to make one but failed. Has anyone been able to figure out how to make one, or (i cringe) a good enough one to think about buying? I'm about 6 months gluten free and am just not experienced enough to deal with, all of a sudden mind you, craving food I can't eat.
  4. Hey, Something fast that we do is use Chebe pizza mix to make calzones. The mix only takes about 5 minutes, three ingredients to mix, then we roll out the dough in two circles. We layer half of each circle with cheese, pepperon, peppers, pinnapple, leftover crumbled hamburger or anything else we are hungry for. Then we just place the other half of the circle over the top, squeeze the edges, put um on a cookie sheet, put a little olive oil and garlic salt on top and bake. They are amazing! Instead of putting the sauce inside, since it adds alot of liquid, we dip with marinara when done. These things take only about 30 minutes and are so good. Another thing is chicken breasts with bbq sauce or seasoning put in the oven to bake, throw a bag of steamable vegetables in the microwave or use mixed fresh fruit as a side.
  5. So I've been having similar burning problems starting about the time I found out I was celiac which was in April. I'm on my 5th doctor and she is a very stumped specialist who is trying to help, but can't figure out what is wrong. Are you guys saying that it is possible that this could be a reaction from a food that my body is now sensitive to? If so, how do you cut out sugar/fruit with being celiac....will you still be able to get the nutrients you need from those fruits and keep your diet balanced with taking that out to test the yeast theory?
  6. Can Lactose Intolerance turn into Casein? The cheese is definently a problem. I also got really really sick off of about a tablespoon of ranch dressing, which is almost all milk cause it is Newmans.
  7. So after getting sick for awhile, my husband and I finally figured out it was a dairy problem. I started taking lactaid pills about three weeks ago and the sickness disappeared. However, since about 5 days ago, I've been getting dairy sick even with taking the lactaid pills. Do the pills just stop working after a few weeks? I can eat baked things like muffins that contain milk with no problem, it is just the pure forms like milk, dressing, cream cheese, yogurt, etc. From what I know currently, since I can eat baked dairy, then casein shouldn't be an issue. Has anyone else had issues like this before? (I'm 4 months gluten free if that makes a difference) Thanks.
  8. How To Deal With Ignorance...

    Thank you! I've been trying to find someone to contact but with no luck.
  9. I have been having all sorts of problems since going gluten free and my doctors don't seem to even try to figure out what is going on. I have tested out about 10 different doctors in less than a year (been on diet 3 months) and can not find one that has any useful information. I've been going lightheaded for almost a year now, have seen 6 doctors about that in particular and they'll test for one thing here or there and then dismiss all together or send me to another doctor. I'm at my wits end and about ready to explode at the next doctor who picks one symptom out of all of the things going on and writes out a prescription for something that doesn't even make sense with any of them. Sorry for the rant, but does anyone know of a descent doctor in the west st.louis area? Or any advice on dealing with rediculous doctors that obvioulsy don't have a clue?

    Thanks to all of you for replying to this. Just thought I'd let you know....I started watching my diet close and am 99.9% positive I have a lactose intolerance problem now. I stopped eating dairy and all my stomache problems and nausea went away completely. I went out and bought lactose intolerant pills and tried um yesterday with a huge glass of milk and not a single problem!
  11. I live in missouri also, but haven't found anything yet. What stores have you seen these products in?
  12. I just got off the phone with Kelloggs and they said that all flavors of the Allbran Fiber Drink Mixes are gluten free!
  13. So my mom just discovered these kelloggs drink mixes in pink lemonade flavor. I am wondering if anyone can help me with the ingredients list to see if they are ok for me to have. I am not experienced at the lable reading yet and have been having a lot of stomache and other problems recently so I would not be able to tell if the mix was bothering me if I just try it. Ingredients POLYDEXTROSE, CITRIC ACID, MALIC ACID, NATURAL LEMON FLAVOR WITH OTHER NATURAL FLAVORS, CONTAINS TWO PERCENT OR LESS OF POTASSIUM CITRATE, SOY LECITHIN, SUCRALOSE, TRICALCIUM PHOSPHATE, ETHOXYLATED MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES, ACESULFAME POTASSIUM, NIACINAMIDE, RED #40, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B6), WHEY PROTEIN ISOLATE, VITAMIN B12.

    Thanks! I will try playing around more with my diet, adding in more of the nuts and things, and see if that helps. If nothing else it will be more healthy for me, but hopefully it will work.

    Depends on what you mean by fat in my diet...I will occasionally eat ice cream, chocolate, taffy, chex....but not in huge amounts. What kind of fats are you talking?
