  1. So, I was in a very similar situation when I started my gluten free diet not so long ago because I was and still love beer. Hard Ciders are great because they are cold and refreshing but there are a few (Hornsby) that use caramel coloring and have gluten in them. Also, Ive become something of a bourbon and scotch fanatic, and when you order any whiskey neat in front of your friends they will never be able to question your "manhood" again.
  2. I'm from Wyoming, but go to school in Idaho.
  3. Thanks for the ideas everyone. Ive come to the conclusion that I have been an idiot for not making my own granola bars. I have been making my own for years, but for some reason it didnt even enter my mind to make gluten free ones. I think that I have to give up the idea of eating a lunch and go towards the snack concept to hold me over. Or maybe do a gazpacho in a zip-lock bag.
  4. So, this is my first post and very well might turn into rant so bear with me. I have been gluten free now for about 2 months. My little cousin was diagnosed with celiacs, and my aunt knew Ive had health problems for years and told me about celiacs and gluten intolerance. I'm 22 and have had my gallbladder out and a nissen surgery (they take the upper part of the stomach rap it around the esophagus and stitch it back to the stomach to fix acid reflux). When I had my gallblader out my symptoms got worse and the doctor had no idea what the problem was. All that being said I have dealt with full blown symptoms of celiacs for close to 6 or 7 years. Now that I know what the problem is and how to prevent it my life has gotten hard because of my new diet. I'm a junior in college and am studying outdoor education. Being so new to the diet I'm kinda worried about what I am going to do for food...My classes this coming semester start at 8 or 9 am and go till 4 or 5 with a couple breaks, but I dont have time to run home. To go with this I climb, bike, or kayak almost every day and need to be able to eat more than a salad or some fruit/veg. I used to just grab a bite to eat on campus, but that really isn't an option anymore, and I cant eat a quick bar before I exercise so I'm kind of lost. Having food as another stress for me is really hard and has made for some breakdowns. Does anyone have any ideas for food that I can take with me? And how do you handle an active life style and deal with celiacs?
