  1. In the past, a few of us sent each other Xmas cards. Some people made them or sent a card that showed something in their town. If people want to do that, they can pm addresses or even email cards.
  2. I found this to be true. I think as you go along, you get into a groove - things become habit. You think about it less because I think becomes second nature.
  3. Sounds like you haven't seen an actual doctor and gotten tested for Celiac before going gluten free? Sounds like you are spending a lot of money for this stuff.
  4. Betty crocker & glutino make great brownie mixes and they are easy to find. They aren't as big as some regular mixes. But, if you don't over cook, they are chewy and yummy. I serve them to gluten eaters and they love them. Cookie mixes usually, aren't as tasty. But Glutino or Kinnknick make great Oreo type cookies people love. If you want to bring a cheese dip and chips, that would work for a party. Everyone loves the classic Rotel and Velveeta - in a crockpot or microwave
  5. Do you mean the dip mix? It says it's gluten-free on it. https://www.hiddenvalley.com/products/dips-and-dressing-mixes/dressing-mixes/original-ranch/
  6. From what I have seen advertised & have heard when I have been in Colorado - gluten-free edibles is a big deal! Seems like lots of people at least dabble with gluten-free there.
  7. Rudeness like that (not your post) is why a lot of people have stopped trying to help. We get so many people on here that are gluten-free for many different reasons, including Celiac and, my favorite - "my sister's hairdresser told her I should go gluten-free" - that asking if you have been tested is actually a normal question. No one could tell if the OP has Celiac and for how long by the first post.
  8. Here is another way to donate. this group is based in Kansas City. they opened the first gluten-free/ allergen friendly food pantry in the US. https://www.facebook.com/donate/115086459170288/1498311410206397/
  9. I don't think think Celiac had anything to do with the side effects of those meds. I think those are possible side effects for any one? They didn't specify Celiac, correct?
  10. Let's just skip the scientific info- if your child was anaphylactic to wheat, you must have seeen that by now? I know at least 50 people with Celiac, none carry epi pens for gluten. One has a terrible allergy to peanuts, one to shell fish- they have an epi pen for that. I don't want you to panic that your child's life is in immediate danger from Celiac. We really don't have to live in a bubble.
  11. I am trying to help you get reliable info from actual medical sources. Celiac is not an allergy. THis girl may have an allergy to wheat, but that is different. And it isn't possible to have Celiac and allergies to other things. I have Celiac and I seem to have an allergy to corn pollen. But that allergy is separate from Celiac
  12. Lots of good and reputable info on this site http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/
  13. Celaic disease is not an allergy, so you don't suffer an anaphylactic reaction. Usually, there is no reason to go to the hospital after an accidental glutening.
  14. Well....That is nice. First, if these enyzmes work like they claim, I don't think they were meant or tested to add to some random beer at a bar. https://www.gluten.org/gluten-free-vs-gluten-removed-beer-study-q/ "The effectiveness of “removing” gluten by breaking it down into smaller fragments has not been validated or accepted by the scientific and medical communities. This is because currently available gluten testing methods are not sufficiently reliable/accurate when it comes to fermented and hydrolyzed products." There are more involved articles explaining why the testing may not work on these gluten removed beers...but they can be hard to read for those of us with just a basic college chemistry 1 class from years ago. lol Let me add - I really hope we can prove these beers are gluten-free. It would really open up our world! and drops that instantly eat up gluten in a drink? That would be an amazing discovery!
  15. And there in lies the problem... no accurate testing for these supposed " gluten removed" beers. They test.... but the tests aren't meant for beer or barley... and putting drops in drinks at bars might get you arrested...
