    Gluten free baking, cycling, massage, and researching celiac disease.
  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. To convert it to a muffin recipe: just don't use the yeast. It's just that simple.
  3. I know this is going to make me unpopular, but you guys need to stop being so damn shy. Restaurant staff are paid to wait on you. They are paid to answer questions, and help you decide on a meal that won't make you sick. Better more upscale places actually train their staff on various food allergies and which products to avoid. If the staff refuses to help or seems somewhat less than knowledgeable then LEAVE!!
  4. PLEASE do yourself a favor and order bread that doesn't taste like drywall. The grainless baker makes buns that when microwaved for 45 seconds look, smell and taste just like wheat bread. If you can't get those then gillians or even glutino makes better bread than energ. If you must stick with energ then at least buy the "seattle buns"
  5. Have you stopped to think that you may be allergic to corn?
  6. This is what happens when people fail to give the whole story and/ or take things out of context. Wheatware is basically plastic by the time the consumer uses it. If I am allergic to wheat food products, will I be allergic to Wheatware
  7. If it's that type of pain... then you're just incredibly out of shape in that area. Try to do 3 or 4 and then stop and each day try to add two or three more. I had that same feeling when I started working out my core, but it goes away after a while.
  8. Celiac isn't something that's triggered. It's not like a migraine or back pain. It's there all the time! If you eat the wrong food.. ie something with gluten in it. You will feel the effects of your disease otherwise it just stays there being pretty much harmless.
  9. Here is a great tip: Against the grain products are basically chebe bread mix. Google it or better yet find it on Amazon for 17.00- you'll receive 8 packages of this stuff. 1 mix will feed a family for one night or one person for several days. I tried posting the link, but the mod wouldn't let me. Good luck All they're doing is using mozz. instead of the suggested cheddar. This stuff is much cheaper and totally AWESOME.
  10. Whole foods would NEVER be liable. When shopping for anything whether it be food, clothing or eating at a restaurant.. caveat emptor always applies. BUYER BEWARE! I've been gluten free for almost 6 years. I live by two philosophies: If you aren't sure; don't eat it and Caveat Emptor and I've never been accidentally glutened. As a celiac, you have to be aware of and knowledgeable about foods and food additives. Companies label spelt as a "wheat alternative" all the time. Spelt isn't a wheat alternative. It is wheat. 5000 year old wheat! This annoys me to no end and I write them about it every time I see it, but that's about all I could do if I got sick.
  11. It's nearly as quick and inexpensive to make your own chicken strips/nuggets, fingers. Either buy breasts, boneless thighs, or tenderloins- dip them in egg and roll in seasoned crumbs or rice flour. Then fry or bake. YUMMY!
  12. Hello All, I am going to be making the trip to Alices Diner in Fall River MA on Saturday. I was wondering if anyone had a menu for her restaurant that they could scan and post. I can't find one anywhere online. Also, Does anyone have a suggestion on what I should try while I'm there? Thanks a bunch. Samantha
  13. Am I the only one who can make gluten free bread that isn't rubbery, mushy or otherwise icky?? I hear a lot about kinnickinik brand gluten free products. They aren't the only company that makes gluten free stuff. Trader joes makes brown rice bread thats excellent I microwave it for 30 seconds with a few drops of water on it and it tastes and feels like wheat bread. I even make my own bread that tastes excellent and its not from a mix.
  14. NAET is quackery. its pseudoscience. muscle testing is extremely subjective. the suspect allergen is in a glass or plastic tube so you can't even make the arguement for transdermal contamination. http://www.remedyfind.com/review_long.asp?...&review_id=3440 I know there are millions of links out there that profess the magical powers of NAET but if you have this treatment to "cure" your celiac disease or wheat intolerance then eat wheat you're still doing a lot of damage to your body. this is nothing more than modern day snake oil.
  15. I think it's time for a new doctor. It being structurally similar has NOTHING!! to do with having a reaction or not. The reason celiacs react to wheat is because it contains wheat gluten not because of some stuctural similarity. I also think you should find out exactly how much your doctor knows about celiac disease. This sounds eerily similar to the common belief held by many medical professionals that spelt is a "wheat alternative" and is wheat free meaning that it's safe for celiacs. if you are reacting to quinoa you may be allergic to it. If you react to soy protein isolate you're probably allergic to soy. I know it seems obvious but this idea is so far fetched it flys in the face of any logical thought.
