  1. Hello, Annie's Gluten-free mac and cheese is only 2.39 at IGA here in Vancouver. Whole Foods is usually competitve on frozen waffles and certain snack foods. There's always a sale! Their price on Udi's bagles and breads is the best I've found: 7.69 for the bagles (four). Superstore now carries Nature's Path Mesa Sunrise for 7.69 per bag. Choices Rice Bakery sells four hamburger buns for 4.99 and they're very nice. Please post your own finds... we can get these prices down if we vote with our wallets. Gluten-free Economy Mom
  2. Hello, I'm also a mom to three! Udi's bagels and breads are now at the 41st and Dunbar IGA in Vancouver, BC. Also at WHOLE FOODS on FOurth Avenue (and slightly better priced there).
  3. Any Celiac(s) From Canada

    Hello all, Vancouver calling. Anyone else with a recently-diagnosed depressed eight year old? I'm getting tired of baking things that he doesn't even want to try. Susan
  4. Hi there, My son is eight and has just been diagnosed. When I read your story I thought it was ours! He is teeny tiny and weighs 40 lbs. His 5 year old bro is almost as tall and he is tiny too. I'm so hoping that Gluten-free helps all of the family (I have three tiny sons!) but it's only week three so too early to tell. Thanks to others for their success stories. S
  5. 3 Weeks Into Celiac Diet Frustrations

    Cherie, Very sympathetic on the frustration with having to pack your own food everywhere and getting tired when you don't eat! Also, college under even the BEST of circumstances is tough and frustrating. I was so depressed in first year university.... and I was not gluten free then! Lighter foods: almonds, figs, dried bananas...?
  6. How Did You Start Your Diet

    Hi, We are on week three and I am getting tired too. I have heard that it can take quite a while for the small intestine to recover, months, so you still may find relief on that side. Watch out for hidden gluten. I worry that you might be getting some oats or barley malt in your diet that you don't know about, which is giving you symptoms. I find that I have to do a lot of my own cooking and with three gluten free kids and the dear spouse and a full time job, I ain't sitting around watching TV anytime soon. The concept I go with is that prepared foods except for yogurt and potato or corn based foods are off limits. It's probably better for us that I cook more from scratch anyway. For my sake I shop a lot at the local rice bakery, which because we live in a big city, is available. I'm trying to make it fun for myself but you've been on the diet a lot longer, and I can appreciate that it gets old by 3 months out.
  7. Hi, I experience massive headaches after ingesting perhaps rather a lot of sorghum-based muffins. It wasn't a gluten reaction, it was something else entirely. Has anyone else found that sorghum gives them a nasty reaction? Any other flours I should watch out for? Susan
  8. Hi there, My son is 8 and in grade four. He's just recently been diagnosed and he used to eat bread almost exclusively (like an addict!). Anyway, his best bud is peanut-free, so no PBJ forus. I do a hotdog, bare, cut up in a Thermos, and have packets of ketchup from our old trips to MacDonalds (no more, alas, 'till they make their fries gluten-free!). I will try the corn chips and hummus, because that sounds like a great idea!!! I'm hoping that my son will warm to rice pasta so I can send mac and cheese for variety. I always send some treat, cheesies or home made cookies. My chocolate chip cookies are so good that my son shares them with the others. Thanks for all of the suggestions..
