  1. My wife came across a recipe I thought I'd pass along. Been celiac for 10 years now and miss strawberry shortcake dearly. Mix your faviorite gluten free cake mix wiith gluten free angel food cake. Follow these steps next after mixing. 3 TSP of cake mix (bow mixed together) into a small one serving bowl. 2 TSP of water into mix. 1 Minute in the microwave Its done....now add strawberries or peaches....etc and cool whip. Enjoy!
  2. I have been Celiac for alittle over ten years now. Thyroid was also a problem for me that did not come out until I was found I had it. Since I've been on the T meds and watch the diet I live with it pretty well now. My ex-family doctor did not catch my thyroid problem but my allergist did and refered me to a Endocrinologist who now follows me. I make MISTAKES now and then believe me but after about 6 months into it I learned the heard way of things to avoid and it gets easier Barley is one of those no no's. Its in all beer and some resturants cook food in it (clams). They make a gluten free beer now for us folks. http://www.bonappetit.com/blogsandforums/blogs/badaily/2013/02/gluten-free-beer-tastes-good.html Trust me I miss my beer and if I could take barley I have my regular beer. Know it looks now like a long road but it is do able and you get into it and best part is you start feeling really better.
  3. When I was in a hurry, I use gluten free soup over rice. Also like using frozen gluten free waffles (unflavored) mic'd 40 seconds and hamburer pattie. Can also get the "Againts-the-grain" http://www.againstthegraingourmet.com/ frozen bread microwaved and fill with store bought sub or your own ham and cheese from home. Rye
  4. Right on there Mushroon. I would also say biopsy is the way to go. My blood test was borderline but my biopsy told the true story for me. When first went to see my GI doctor I was 120 lbs from 150. Now I'm at 165 for 10 years now. My family doctor dismissed everything as pretty much in my head and even my thyroid blood levels they thought was fine. Blood test and biopsy confirmed mine from my GI doctor. Also deveolped barrett's esophagus from the indigestion but a endoscopy will tell you this also if you have it. Rye
  5. When I first went on the diet after diagnosis, I went 6 months and thought I could cheat with some pudding with bread in it. I paid a most memorable price I can remmber 9.5 years ago. Saw a nutritionist who told about flavoring and things I thought she was being over picky about. I found for myself that over the years I have become more sensitive. Effected my thyroid and since I am on the meds I have lots of energy now. Since I have been more wary in watching the ingredients I've this most surviable as time goes on. Still miss one now and then and pay for it but now qute as bad as I've gone 10 years and still going. Rye
  6. I agree that you are not a wuss in anyway. When I would get an attack, I would have about 15 hour stomach cramps but then afterwards go along fine. Been working fine for 10 years after getting it and haven't really missed anytime. I share your misery though as know it sucks but you'll learn to live with it with one eye open on all foods ;> When eatting out and someone says "I'm not really sure but I think its wheat free...." equals don't even try and come to think of it, I'll just have jello. It is tough working fulltime and getting bit the night before. After the first two years though I found it easier getting around and even ate my most lunchs on the road everyday. Would not give those thinking your faking a second though as you you have enough on your plate..
  7. Proud to say 60 here and still feel like 28. Been Celiac for 10 years.
