  1. Super Bowl....

    I'm making meatballs in the crockpot. Usually I double the recipe. Slow-Cooker Cocktail Meatballs Meatballs: 2 lbs ground turkey or beef 1/3 cup ketchup (I use Annie
  2. I don't worry about gluten in my mascara at all. The chance that I get mascara in my mouth is very slim. As cosmetics go, I am very careful about lipsticks and any lotion or creamy foundation I use on my face and near my mouth. I am also careful with the powdered cosmetics I use, as powder tends to go all over the place.
  3. You are doing the right thing. You are the best advocate for your kids
  4. Vitamins

    Even though they are Children's vitamins, I take Yummi Bears multi-vitamin and mineral. They taste good, and they don't upset my tummy. http://www.yummibears.com/products.php Oh, one more thought. When I was first diagnosed, I had lost about 12 pounds and had trouble eating anything. All the vitamins I tried back then made me my stomach hurt. Basically, I was always nauseated. I used to drink an Ensure daily, to help keep my weight up and get some extra vitamins. It was a little easier on my stomach, and it really helped while my body was healing. Good luck - I hope you feel better soon.
  5. Which products do you find best from these brands: Schar - not heard of this one Glutino - love their frozen pizza, their cinnamon raisin bread, and their pretzels Glutano - not familiar with this one Pamela's - chocolate chip cookies Ener-G - brown rice loaf (when I first started eating gluten-free, their bread was horrible! It's much better now) Barkat - ?? Gillian's - ?? Other really good brands that are dedicated gluten free: Enjoy Life - good cookies and bars, Orgran - gravy mixes, gluten-free stuffing, Kinnikinnick - breads, pizza crusts, muffins, Gluten Free Pantry - good mixes for brownies, muffins, breads.
  6. Spelt?

    Avoid Spelt - from my first hand experience, I can tell you - it is not safe! 2 weeks into my gluten-free diet, I tried some Spelt bread. I thought it would be safe... wrong.. I was so sick!
  7. Amy, thanks for the idea. That sounds delicious!
  8. I use Kiss My Face lotion. They have a couple of lotions that are gluten free. I like the Honey & Calendula lotion. It does have a light fragrance. The Olive & Aloe Moisturizer is fragrance free and gluten-free. They list the products that DO contain gluten here: http://www.kissmyface.com/content/articles/faq.pasp#gluten
  9. Food for Life, Brown Rice bread is pretty good. and Kinnikinnick has some good breads. I love their Cheese Tapioca Rice Bread. Also, I've heard Chebe is very good. FYI - most gluten-free bread tastes best toasted.
  10. That is great news! I noticed the bags no longer said gluten-free, so I have been avoiding them. Thanks Hez, for the info.
  11. II was always tired - I would wake up in the morning tired. I felt light-headed and dizzy, like I needed to eat, but I wasn't hungry. I suffered serious brain fog - especially after my morning bagel - which made work difficult. My legs ached, my head ached, and my stomach always hurt - I just felt bad all the time. I knew something was wrong with me, but I didn't know what. And, I because I felt so lousy all the time, I was very emotional. The littlest things would upset me. If 100% means healthy - I was running at about 60%. Now I'm feeling 100% most of the time.
  12. I don't know about inches off my waist, but I did loose 12 pounds after going gluten-free. I feel like my waist got smaller, because my clothes fit better. However, I never actually measured my waist. I noticed the change within about 4 weeks.
  13. When I first went gluten-free, I could not take vitamins at all. They made me nauseated. I tried many different types, but I couldn
  14. Wow! I just logged in to see if anyone knew if Glaceau vitamin water is gluten-free, and here it is! I bought some at the store yesterday without even knowing if I could drink it. I'm so glad I can. Many Many thanks for posting this!
