  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Calabria's Pizza In Nj

    I just moved near Livingston, so I am looking forward to trying Calabria's out!
  3. Dinner In Essex Co. Nj?

    Hi Everyone, My husband and I just recently moved to West Orange, NJ (Essex county), and I'm looking for some gluten-free places to eat. I only know about Calabria's in Livingston, but I'd like to find some place for my birthday dinner... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Carrie
  4. Need Support Group In Boston

    I used to love going to Not Your Average Joe's in Needham (where I worked) and Watertown (where I lived)! I haven't been there since before I was diagnosed and used to LOVE eating their bread with that olive oil/garlic/cheese dipping sauce. I now live in NJ, but I'm glad to know that NYAJ is going to have a gluten-free menu - it will be good for when I visit.
  5. Breakfast Ideas

    WOW, thanks to all of you for all of the great Breakfast ideas! I can't wait to make some of these. Have a great week everyone!
  6. Breakfast Ideas

    Great ideas, thanks so much guys.
  7. Good morning, As I eat rice crackers with PB on them for the 100th day in a row, I'm getting really bored with eating the same thing over and over. When I first started to post on this board (in 2005), I remember someone posting a list of foods to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and others added to it. I can't find it now. Has anyone seen it recently??? Much appreciated! Carrie
  8. WOW - I'm a little late to the party here, but I ALWAYS thought it was the 7 Grain bread, and wheat Thins, and all of the other "healthy" multi-grain foods that I was eating that triggered my Celiac. If I think back, it could be getting married (April), moving to Manhattan 2 months later (June), my grandmother dying 3 months later (October), and the stress of being out of work for 6 months (Jun - Jan). It was in Jan when I started to have symptoms of Celiac. I was originally diagnosed with IBS by my PCP and was told to eat a bland diet for 2 weeks. When that didn't work, I went to a gastro in NYC on a friend's recommendation, and within 10 mins of talking to the doctor, he said, "I'm pretty sure you have Celiac. We'll do the blood test and endoscopy to confirm, but I'm 99% positive." And, he was correct... I also have asthma, allergies and psoriasis. And am Irish... Thanks so much for opening my eyes...
  9. Looking For Good gluten-free Cosmetics

    I just started using Origins, but inquired about all of the products I was interseted in, and they were very helpful.
  10. So Upset With Myself

    Paula, I feel your pain. I went to lunch yesterday, and got steak fajitas. I asked what was in them, and the reply I got back indicated that they would be safe for me. Well, let me tell you... I was at an open house an hour later, and had to run out. I had a severe reaction to what I ate, and was in the bathroom at least 7 times yesterday afternoon. I have been gluten-free for almost 2 years now, with very few slipups (my last one was blue cheese). The reaction that I had yesterday was 100x worse then those I had before I was diagnosed. Or maybe I just got used to it and blocked it out of my mind. Either way, I can empathize with you as I'm still feeling the effects today. Feel better, and know that no matter how careful we are, there are times when we get victimized. Carrie
  11. Good morning, My husband bought Rolaids soft chews for himself, and I took a look at the label since I've seen on this board that they are not gluten-free. The labels lists that it contains milk, and I looked at all of the ingredients, and they seem safe. Does anyone know what was in the original soft chews that were not gluten-free??? I'm going to call the company anyway, but I was just curious... Thanks, Carrie
  12. What To Say?

    Reading your post reminded me of a topic that I started in January: http://www.glutenfreeforum.com/index.php?s...;hl=carriecraig Most annoying comments/questions asked. Some of the answers are hysterical - this is my favorite: Yea, I've gotten the "Can't you just eat a LITTLE??" Yea, I answered... if I want MOLTEN ACID shooting out my butt.
  13. Hi Buzz! Yes, I too was hungry constantly. I am 5'4" and weighed 118 and ate more then my husband who is 6' and weighs 180 lbs. I'd say it took somewhere between 4-6 months for the extreme hunger to go away. Now, I am down to 105 and I sometimes have to force myself to eat - just because I know I should. Hang in there!
  14. Thanks so much for all of you who responded! Please feel free to contact me should you need some words of encouragement.
  15. Wow, I have been away from celiac.com for almost the whole summer. I sure feel like I have missed a lot b/c I have no idea what Rachelville is!
