  1. Hi Lisa, Thank you for the welcome. I'm still having joint pain. It's worst when I eat any kind of dairy. I also had a flareup when I was using almond flour to bake. I wish I could find a Dr. who could help me figure out which foods I'm eating that are causing the flare ups. Maybe there is no way to completely get rid of OA. Maybe I'm just dreaming. :-) This is all new to me. I've never had to deal with this kind of pain before and I keep hoping for a way to get rid of it. Georgene
  2. I have been off all grains for nearly a year with very few slips. My doctor wants to run a celiac test since I am having arthritis symptoms in all my joints when I eat certain foods,etc. Will it show I have problems with celiac since I've been off of grains for a year?I don't want to go back on grains just to take a test.
  3. I recently found out that the joint pain I've been experiencing is partly due to tree nuts. I had been using almond flour in a lot of recipes and my knee pain got so bad that I thought I would have to quit my job. I found a mix on a forum that uses coconut flour. I've used it to make biscuits, waffles and pie crusts. I don't know if you can put links on this forum (some don't allow it) so I'll just say that the board is called lowcarbfriends and you want to look for BTF mix of the Fantastic Flour Mix. Regarding more breakfast ideas... you might have to think outside the box. For instance, steak for breakfast? Smoothies made out of coconut milk with frozen fruit? Coconut flour waffles with blueberries? I use the BTF mix and made a bread and then use it for french toast but I do believe it has eggs in it. You can look up substitutes for eggs in recipes. Sometimes we'll eat fried chicken for breakfast. :-) Hope this helps!
