  1. I have finally embraced the Gluten-Free lifestyle and went out and bought $30 worth of Baking ingredients. The only brown rice flour I could find was Arrowhead Mills and not extra fine. I haven't tried my banana mufins yet, but am woried they will be too gritty. Where can you find the extra fine kind? Whole Foods? Tried Asian market and only had extra fine white flour. Can I use it? Thanks
  2. I have been gluten free for a little over a week and need help planning dinenrs for my family. I thought if everyone would share their favorite dinner and/or recipe, it could help everyone. Even if you have been eating this way for years, new ideas are always refreshing. My favorite dinner so far has been homemade chili. Would have loved a piece of cornbread though.
  3. Week One

    I have been gluten free for one week after feeling awful for a year. After the birth of my DS, I have not had a day without excessive cramping and odd bathroom habits. I self diagnosed with IBS-D and have many symptoms that are Fibromyalgia like. I tried getting a diagnosis, but just keep scheduling appts and getting more bloodwork without any answers. With a newborn and a five year old to take care of, I just kind of gave up and lived with the aches and pain. After a lot of research, decided to give the gluten free lifestyle a try. I still am having a little cramping and the bathroom habits are still not regular. How long does it take for the D to go away? The cramping? Anyone feel any relief from muscle aches/fatigue or bursitis after giving up gluten? Any help is greatly appreciated?
  4. I have been gluten free for a week now and am starting to feel better, but planning dinner for my family has become a real challenge. I'm thinking tacos may be a real winner. Any ideas for a homemade taco seasoning? I am a little scared of the premixed seasonings out there.
