  1. For those of you out there avoiding gluten AND soy, I wanted to let you know about a delicious alternative to soy sauce. It's called Coconut Aminos, and is completely soy and gluten free! Here is the website and information: http://www.coconutsecret.com/aminos2.html It is also dairy free and vegan! You can do a search for a store locator to find the nearest seller who carries the product. Hope this helps -- enjoy!
  2. Soy-Free Gum?

    http://www.stockngo.com/white-wintergreen-12-pieces.html?gclid=CNye56PBn6cCFYnd4AodkDWIKg Ingredients: Sorbitol , Gum Base , Maltitol , Mannitol , Natural and Artificial Flavoring , Less than 2% of: Acacia , Acesulfame Potassium , Aspartame , BHT , Candelilla Wax , Glycerin , Sodium Stearate and Titanium Dioxide. Same as what it says on the packages I have!
  3. Soy-Free Gum?

    Okay...I *think* I hit the jackpot, per the labeling (assuming it's correct, although I've had no problems yet)... Trident White Wintergreen (in the Teal package) Other Trident White flavors DO have soy lecithin, but this flavor does not seem to have that wretched ingredient. It is not listed in the ingredients, and I have not had any ill-effects of soy since I've started chewing it... I always check the back of the package before I buy, though, just to make sure they haven't changed the ingredients. Let me know if you try it and it works! A
  4. Ha! Don't apologize! I appreciate that you took the time to write all that. I got brave and bought some Lundberg rice cakes (apple cinnamon). I'm still not sure I'm totally okay on rice, but it's really helped my blood sugar crashes. I saw a dietician this week and she's okay with my calories and activity level, so yay! How're you doing?

  5. Soy-Free Gum?

    Sadly basically all gum has soy lecithin in it. . . I swear that stealthy soy sneaks up in the craziest of places! It seems as though soy oil and lecithin are in basically every single processed food out there. Thank heavens for companies like Enjoy Life and Udi's that guarantee no gluten OR soy, among other common allergens/intolerances!
  6. Gluten-Free Rice Milk?

    Thank you, thank you! Those are all great ideas! The only other thing I would use "milk" for is on cereal...of which i can only eat Rice Chex, and I don't mind eating it dry (with a little cinnamon-sugar ). So seems like your suggestions will cover me for milk in all other applications! I have not tried to make rice milk myself, but that recipe looks super easy! I'll have to give it a try. Thanks so much again for your wonderful ideas and help!
  7. Canola Oil An Issue?

    I can DEFINITELY relate!! I cannot really tolerate fat at all and have been gluten-free for over a year and a half. It can be frustrating knowing that our body needs fat to be healthy. . . if you have any insight or ideas that have worked for you, do let me know! Good luck and happy fat-free healing!
  8. Qdoba's

    I just have to say that if you are sensitive to soy as well as gluten, Chipotle is a NO-GO! They cook EVERYTHING in soybean oil, so nothing is safe. Just wanted to warn - eat at your own risk Haven't had Q'doba, but sounds like it may be a better option for the soy-sensitive out there Happy dining!
  9. Canola Oil An Issue?

    I started this thread a while back and got some interesting replies! Definitely check it out - hopefully it will help!
  10. Gluten-Free Rice Milk?

    I don't live by a Wegman's. But I'll be keeping my eyes open for Good Karma and Pacific! What other milks do people suggest? I cannot have dairy, soy, peanuts or tree nuts (no almond milk, sadly), or high amounts of fat (coconut milk products often make me sick because of this). Any thoughts would be GREAT! Thanks!!
  11. To Trust Or Not To Trust?

    It is so hard to trust companies and restaurants, especially after we have all been betrayed time and again. . .I guess it's all about weighing the benefits vs. the costs. Is the risk worth it? In my mind, it's often not. As far as Erewhon Gluten Free Brown Rice Cereal...I've had it and have not had a reaction that I know of. Have you been noticing problems with them??
  12. I cannot tolerate ANY soy, including soy oil or soy lecithin. Besides Glee Gum (which I don't prefer), does anyone know of any gluten-free AND soy-free chewing gum?? Thanks!
  13. Does anyone know of any SAFE gluten-free rice milks? Rice Dream is out and I'm looking for another option...Thanks!
  14. I've had both a negative blood test and a negative small intestine biopsy (upper endoscopy). I definitely have Celiac disease and suffer from the related food intolerances as well. I say the proof is in what happens when you change the diet. (You know the old saying: if it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, and looks like a duck, it's probably a duck!) If things get better, celiac or gluten intolerance it is. My life changed when I went gluten-free (and everything else free!) I agree - could you put together some research/information for them, even just on gluten intolerance? Even if he's not suffering from Celiac, it could be gluten intolerance and dietary changes could help...I'm sure you've thought of this. Good luck, and I wish you patience and courage in helping the situation!
  15. Working Out On Extremely Limited Diet?

    HOORAY RICE!!! That
