  1. Hi there, I have been gluten free for a little over a year now and I miss my food. Lately I have found safe ways to cook these meals however, I am looking for a safe cooking wine. I always get various reactions when checking to see if there are gluten free. Can anyone reccomend a cooking wine. I wold like to make lemon chicken.
  2. May I ask how you make a gluten free gravy? I have yet to find a way to make it. and have it taste good.
  3. I have spent most of the day tracking down gluten free foods for Thanksgiving. I also found a few helpful links and I thought i would share. I would love if you all would share your Gluten Free Recipes with me as I am still a newbie to all of this. A fresh or frozen turkey is not something we typically suspect as a source of gluten. Unfortunately, basting solutions injected in turkey during processing may contain gluten. Here are several popular brands of whole fresh or frozen turkey that, according to the manufacturers, are gluten-free. Always read labels carefully! If you aren't sure about a product, contact the manufacturer before buying. Don't buy pre-stuffed turkey or use the gravy packets that accompany many turkey products- they contain gluten! 1.

  4. Travel Tips Needed

    Legoland will let you take food into the park if you have a note from your doctor. We did that here in Florida.
  5. Going To The Zoo

    If you eat at the salad bar, be sure to skip the dressing as it usually contains gluten.
  6. Going To The Zoo

    When we go to theme parks I always bring a note from the doctors about the food problems we have. Once they see that I am able to bring in all of the food.
  7. I found out that I have Celiacs this year. I have been doing everything I can to advoid gluten. I call all 800 numbers if I think there might be gluten. I research before leaving if we are going out. I thought I was doing everything right, until today when I was at the grocery store. I was buying meat, and I was going to pick up chicken. Now I usually buy fresh, but I have bought frozen when I know I am going to make stuff for upcoming meals. Well, today I go to pick up the frozen chicken and something catches my eye, it says prepared in chicken broth then frozen. I could not believe this! Here I was thinking I was doing it right, when clear as day it says chicken broth all over it. I almost started to cry in the middle of the store. I never thought that raw chicken would be a problem. I am not sure what to do now. SHould I call the doctor to see about a blood test? I don'tknow what good that would do, but I would hate to think that this whole year, I have done nothing right. Has this happened to any of you before?
  8. Severe Weight Loss

    I am still new to this, what soup can I eat that is Gluten Free? I have 3 super markets where I live so I may have to order off the internet. The problem is I have tried different foods that are not very good so I hate to order something and have one item shipped. I googled the nearest whole foods store and it's an hour and a half away, so we are planning a trip there soon.
  9. Severe Weight Loss

    I am a 5'8 female and 29 years old . I was 160lbs. Just slightly over weight. Now I am 124lbs underweight. I normally start off eating fruit or cereal for breaskfast. I can not have dairy so I use rice milk. For snakcks I will eat some type of nuts or chips (I know there are bad)and more fruit. Lunch I do Chicken salad, or a salad that actually has chicken in it, or chili. Then I usually have another snack bfore dinner, which is normally rolled up sliced ham or boiled eggs. Then for dinner I eat a meat, veg and some kind of potato. I also drink water and soda. Just recently started a vegan multi vitiam.
  10. font="Times New Roman"] I was told I have Celiacs in May of this year. I noticed around the middle of June that I was losing some weight. At first, I was all to thrilled to lose some extra but, then I could not wear any of my clothing. Since May I have lost 36lbs. I know that might not be alot to some, but I can't stop losing it. I keep a food journal, and I am eating the right and correct amount of food, but I can't seem to find the problem. My question would be is this normal? If so, how do I control it, and maintain my weight or, even gain some.

    Hi there, I too am new to Gluten free living. I have been totally Gluten free and dairy free since March of this year. At 1st I was very upset and I wasn't sure how I was going to handle this. My 1st test was at a BBQ. I didn't know if I would be able to eat anything, and I certainly did not want to be an "outcast". I found out that many items are Gluten free, for example Bushs baked beans, Hormel chili with beans, and Lays potato chips. I also searched and found Gluten free recipes for potato salad and pasta salad. As far as snacks go there is a Gluten free brownie recipe, that I sub in rice milk since I can't have dairy. Also there is a kettle korn popcorn that Wal-mart and Sams club sell that is Gluten and Dairy free. I think it is amazing :)For the most part, I find that I host a lot of the family and friend get togethers, just so I am 100% sure that it if food friendly. I am the only one in my family that is Gluten free, however my family doesn't mind eating it with me for breakfast every once in i while. So maybe your guy might try to go Gluten free once a week?? Most stuff you can't tell there is a difference. One more thing I found out that ALL Boars head deli products are Gluten free. They have wonderful meats and sauces.
