  1. thank you! has anyone tried ground flaxseed? i would use the bread in the processor but i havent purchased any bread yet (we just went gluten free this week and i cant justify almost $6 for a loaf with the way my husband inhales it!). i will have to check the pre made bread crumbs though. i use them cooking a lot so that would be the best way for me. ive heard the cornstarch for fries too......help them crisp up better
  2. what are some of the recipes you use? im always looking for a new one! i have the ninja masterfood processor/blender and it works wonders! its by far the best blender I've ever had and at a reasonable price too! my favorite juice is 2c spinach, 1c frozen pineapple and 2 frozen bananas. soo tasty!
  3. im going to have to look for those! im not gluten intolerant but am supporting my hubby.......and the only thing i could find shopping today was rice flour tortillas. apparently they dont hold together too well so idk how well they will do for creating a wrap.
  4. Domino's (And Some Other Pizzerias)

    If you guys have a Zpizza near you, you should try it. It's to DIE for! and they have vegan cheeses too for you guys with dairy intolerances too! A little pricy but soooo worth it! If you sign up for their Ztribe mailing letter they send you coupons -- one of them being $5 off of your first order. And on your birthday they send you a buy one get one free personal pizza coupon. (And they are super careful with cross contamination!)
  5. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas for a bread crumb substitute? In my "normal" baking/cooking I use bread crumbs a lot --- i.e.: black bean burgers, parmesan tilapia, meatballs, etc. Thanks for any input!
  6. Cinnamon Rolls

    Found it! --> http://www.bobsredmill.com/recipes.php?recipe=6932
  7. Bread

    http://glutenfreeonashoestring.com/top-10-secrets-to-baking-best-gluten-free-bread/ <-- it sucks she doesn't have the recipe on her website but maybe you can go to your library and get it? http://readingyourlips.blogspot.com/2012/05/best-gluten-free-bread-recipe-and.html <-- heard this was pretty good.... I haven't tried either one but I have been looking into making breads and thought those might help you!
  8. I appreciate the tips! I will get his hospital record, but probably not until next month....short on cash and need that tax return. I have done some price comparison shopping and have decided to make my own breads because there is no way I am paying $6/loaf especially with the way he inhales it. I found a flour replacement (---> http://www.silvanaskitchen.com/silvanas-kitchen-all-purpose-gluten-free-flour/) if anyone would find that helpful. I love baking so I suppose that's convenient. I have found a lot of gluten free food blogs and things on Pinterest so that will help. I did see some quinoa pasta the other day that wasn't too expensive. Anyone know how that tastes?
  9. I appreciate your guys' input! I'm afraid I don't have answers for specific questions.....I thought, at the time, I was asking good questions when I would occasionally see the doctors, but apparently not! I think we will be going gluten free just to see if it helps. We don't exactly have the time or money to be going thru the hospital to try to get blood work done. Thank you guys so much for your help! Now it's just trying to find ways to eat without breaking the bank! I'm not sure, specifically, how his blood levels are. They looked for damage during his endoscopy and colonoscopy but found nothing. I'm afraid I didn't ask enough specific questions to provide you guys with more information.....I didn't know what to ask really. I just wanted him well and was very, very sleep deprived. Neither one of us are positive if they did or not. This was almost 2 years ago and unfortunately during the time he was in the hospital, I was at work. If I wasn't at work, I was staying with him at the hospital but they did all blood work and testing during the mornings, when I wasn't there. I would assume that they would have checked for something like that especially with the symptoms that he was having.
  10. So, I would love to hear any input that any of you may have about my husbands condition. I am at a loss of what to do for him as we don't have health insurance and the county hospital is a joke. His history is below.... any input or suggestions are greatly appreciated! June 1st of 2011 he was hospitalized for 4 days and received 2 blood transfusions because he had lost so much blood..His blood level was around 6.5. He was losing blood when ever he had a bowel movement, which was daily, sometimes multiple times a day. He had always had the bleeding issue and it began around the age of 12/13 years old and he is now 28, almost 29, years old. The doctors at the hospital checked for hemorrhoids, which he had (I don't remember if they were external or internal but it wasn't enough to cause the large amount of bleeding) and they performed a colonoscopy, endoscopy, and they had him drink a dye to do (I believe) a CT scan. They were unable to find anything to cause the bleeding. He had blood tests done and nothing came back abnormal. He has been taking fiber (4 capsules daily at 0.52g/capsule) and iron pills (2 tablets at 65mg each) since that incident, he still has the bleeding (which he has had daily since he was 12/13 years old), but has noticed that the bleeding has increased to the point of where he will need to be hospitalized again, soon, if we can't find a solution. He says that when we eat healthy it is bright red but when we go out to eat, grab a burger, etc. it generally is dark red. He does have clotting, he said its normally all the time, but it always looks like someone poured blood in the toilet bowl. His stools are firm and it hurts for him to have a bowel movement (in his words "bowel movements make him feel like its opening up his guts"). He also said that he has a sharp stinging pain (in his rectum) mostly through the day, however it goes away at night.
