  1. I feel sorry for you! But, sobbing in a corner certainly won't help you. Of course, I have (had) my moments as well, but overall, I'm trying to approach my condition as positive as possible. At first, when I was diagnosed with celiac disease, I missed all the things I couldn't have anymore, so I was desperately trying to find replacements. But as you all know, gluten-free bread doesn't taste like 'real' bread, and it certainly doesn't cheer you up when you're feeling down! So I try to embrace the foods I CAN have now. There are so many delicious things you can have, such as rice, potatoes, crisps, chocolate, fruit, vegetables etc. etc. I must say the support of my family really helped me. I live on my own, but when I visit my parents, I can always be sure to have a delicious gluten free meal waiting for me. So my parent's house is a care-free zone for me:) And I'm sure you will find a suitable job! Remember; you aren't ill, you're just intolerant/allergic to some foods! It isn't the end of the world, although it may seem that way now. Just talk to your (future) manager and explain your diet. I'm sure they will let you bring your own food after they hear about your gluten free diet. so, stop worrying and start taking care of yourself. See this as an opportunity to explore the world of (gluten-free) food: there are so many thing out there which you can still eat!
  2. This did the trick for me: Put your pan on the heat with boiling water in it. Put some baking soda in your pan and let it cook for a while. The baking soda cleans the pans in their 'pores' so it should be clean. But the best thing to do if you're still not sure is obviously buying yourself a new set of pans.
  3. What's For Breakfast Today?

    It's strawberry season! So lots of fresh strawberries with yoghurt and some (gluten free of course!) corn flakes. Delicious!!!
  4. Eating In College

    ahw, I feel terribly sorry for you! Luckily, I don't have mandatory meals at my university. I live off campus, so I cook all my food at home. But I feel your pain: having dinner at the dining hall is almost mission impossible. Perhaps you can ask some authority at your university if they can make an exception for you, so you can bring your own rice cooker, microwave etc.? Perhaps they'll be more convinced of the importance of it if you bring a note from your doctor? Anyways, good luck with it, I hope you can enjoy your college years, because it should be the time of your life instead of always worrying about food!
