  1. Quick Question!

    We're headed out to the movies, is the popcorn and butter topping gluten-free? Thanks! Angie Never mind, I did a quick search and from a previous post it appears that AMC's popcorn is gluten-free.
  2. Thanks for putting it into perspective, Richard. Your explanation makes sense and gave me a good chuckle!
  3. I guess my thoughts are somewhat along the same lines as Viola. If celiacs are told to watch their shampoos, soaps, and makeup...then why wouldn't deoderant be on that list?
  4. My husband has been using Old Spice for over two years now and this past week has developed a painful rash that appears to be DH. He has been gluten-free since January 1....in my quirky mind it makes sense that since the rest of his body has rid itself of the gluten that this area would be attacked since it could be the only place receiving gluten. I read the ingredients and it doesn't appear that they contain gluten, however we're very new at this and I'm wondering if something is hidden. Any help you can offer or suggestions on deorderants that you know to be gluten-free are much appreciated! I am emailing P&G today to see what sort of response they give to us. Blessings, Angie
  5. Great Egg Bread Recipe

    Thanks! We're getting ready to head out of town, but I'll be sure to try this one out when we get home and let you know how it tasted. Just to clarify...the potato starch is NOT potato starch flour, right? It's the one that I would find in the Kosher section of the grocery store.....right?
  6. Chili's - Latest Gf Menu

    We ate at Chili's this afternoon. My husband had the ribeye, steamed broccoli, and plain mashed potatoes. He said everything tasted great and did not get sick!
  7. Hmmm...that's interesting. I wonder how long they suggest to nurse? I breastfed both of my boys and although we haven't had them tested they are having a positive response to being gluten-free. When my second son had gluten a week ago, his stools were white and runny. The rash on his arms and legs tripled in size( layers of bumps), and his mood was severly affected. So we are pretty certain that he is gluten intolerant. He had breastmilk until he was nearly 10 months old and my husband is the one with celiac...not me. He is currently 2.5 years old and has shown symptoms since being introduced to solids at 6 months old.
  8. Foods You Miss

    Bavarian Cream Donuts! Pepperoni Rolls The middle of DQ cakes Good Crackers...that don't cost a fortune for 4 oz.! Brownies Warm and Soft Rolls with honey butter
  9. Thanks for posting your recipes. I'll be trying them out this week!
  10. Chick-fil-a Ingredients List Online.

    Thank you for sharing!
  11. We'll be leaving for Ohio in a few weeks to visit family and we're concerned about the food situation during the road trip. We are staying overnight to and from Ohio. I'm planning on making reservations at Amerisuites or something similar that isn't too expensive, but does have a fridge/microwave. Those of you who are seasoned at this, can you offer little tidbits and hints to save this mommy and daddy some hassle ? It's challenge enough to make the trip with a breastfeeding four month old, busy two year old, and know it all seven year old...throw gluten-free into the mix and you've got one glorious experience . Thank you!
  12. Thank you for the suggestions ! Whatever the culprit was it has disappeared for now. He was feeling a bit better yesterday and much better today. I think it may have been some Jell-O Pudding that was on a safe list I found...but has modified food starch listed as an ingredient. Isn't that something that's questionable? I didn't realize that he had been eating it when I posted the original message.
  13. Great Egg Bread Recipe

    I'd like the egg recipe! I'm also a mission to find a tasty bread. I've experimented some, but we've only been gluten-free for a month, so I haven't gotten too far.
  14. He has been gluten-free since January 1 and except for two mishaps during the first week (my fault with ingredients) he hasn't ingested any gluten. He's mainly sticking to meat, veggies, fruit, and rice. I've experimented with the different flours and have had some success in the kitchen, along with a few flops . Our two sons have also gone gluten-free and their systems seem to be healing more quickly then my husband's has. He's had his symptoms for at least 10 years, it's been a long process with many different physicians and tests. They still would not give him a conclusive diagnosis. The GI said he didn't think it was celiac, our primary dr. said he didn't know enough about celiac to confirm or dismiss it. His blood panel came back positive, his iron levels are elevated (negative hemochromatosis), his thyroid levels were bottom low for one test and normal a month later, elevated liver enzymes (does not drink at all), fatigued all the time, nausea constantly, life long skin rashes on upper arms and thighs, mouth soars, gum issues (has a Rx to help with that)....anyways many other symptoms that lean towards being gluten intolerant. Our sons are both in the 5% for their ages, the oldest has always had stomach problems (runs to the bathroom as soon as he eats), and the second son's symptoms are much like his dad's...down to the exact skin rash in the same area. We researched celiac for several months before making the gluten-free decision and did not have the boys tested. Anyways, after sharing that history I'll get to my main reason for this post. My husband felt great during weeks 2-3, better then he's been in years. Now, since Sunday he has been miserable, extremely irritable, mood swings, sleeping for several hours (10-12/day). The rash has disappeared on his right arm and his legs, it's still slightly faded on his left arm. This is the first time that his arm and legs have been smooth since he can remember. He has not ingested gluten since early on in week 1. We are staying gluten-free, going off is not an option. The boys are gaining weight and are the oldest one's stomach issues have vanished. I am assuming and have been told that his body is still detoxing and this is normal. What extra things can I do to help him along and about how long would you think this is going to last? I wish that I could get him to join in here and read for himself your stories. I do tell him and read him things when they are relevant to his experiences. It encourages him and gives him the needed justification he has searched for, but it's not the same as being involved and sort of getting to know the group...if that makes any sense to you all. Well, I'm starting to do my rambling bit and it's late so I'd better hop off of here and get some rest. Thanks for listening and any extra tips you could share will be received warmly Blessings!
