  1. Schar Baguette is really good! My husband (not gluten-free) now prefers it over regular french bread.
  2. What Karen said! My sister and I eat them all the time without any issues. Any rich chocolatey candy will bother me a bit if I eat them on an stomach.
  3. I had the same problem for about three years, and finally last year I started gaining weight and am back to normal plus and feeling great. I worked with a dietician and my g.i. I used a product called Muscle Egg which is essentially liquid eggs that come in flavors. It comes in quart and gallon size and is delivered frozen. The only ones I could stand were the plain and chocolate. Google it - it's an excellent product (also pricey, so watch for free shipping specials). I drank a couple cups a day and added it to smoothies, My dr. recommended medium chain triglyceride oil. Walgreens ordered it for me. I don't remember what it's called, but they should be able to help you. It has a coconut taste and isn't bad at all. In addition, my diet was rich in tuna, salmon, olive and coconut oil, peanut and almond butter, nuts, eggs, steak and eggs for breakfast, and avocados. Steak and eggs was my "go to" meal. I tried hiding avocado in anything I could come up with. I ate so many of them that I can barely look at them now. I was dairy intolerant during this time and luckily that is no longer a problem. If you can have dairy, go for it - full fat milk, cheese, ice cream, yogurt!
  4. I've had them about six or seven times at several different Starbucks locations. My sister has, also. Neither one of us have had any signs of getting glutened. They are served in a parchment paper bag that should be handed to you straight from the oven sealed. I've heard many internet complaints about the bags being dusty, too many ingredients, unhealthy, etc., but honestly, they are pretty darned tasty! And, when you are traveling and hungry, they are even tastier. They sell out quickly at most Starbucks, but I've been able to purchase one as late at 6 p.m.
  5. I got an email from Feast at Lele, a luau in Lahaina. They offer a sit down dinner rather than a buffet, and have prepped meals for many celiacs and other food issues. Yay for them! They cook with very little gluten, and the only thing they will not serve me is the Hawaiian sweet bread offered during the last course. Wait staff and kitchen are all given the word that they are serving a guest with celiac and cautions are put in place.
  6. Last request before I head to Maui? Any other suggestions? Luau at Lele was recommended as a possible luau, but I haven't heard back from them yet? Any luau suggestions? I'll be staying at Kaanapali.
  7. I've never run into a coffee with gluten, flavored or not.
  8. I don't remember the brand, but the ones I bought at Hobby Lobby are fine.
  9. Thanks! I'll be heading to Maui in February and hope those places are still open.
  10. Dairy and opiates? Uh...probably not so much...https://www.sciencenews.org/blog/scicurious/no-cheese-not-just-crack
  11. You could be dehydrated. That will cause nausea and vomiting.
  12. The side effects of Rifaxamen include digestive distress. I was on two rounds of it for SIBO a few years ago. I haven't had any recurring problems with SIBO since then, and I don't eat any special diet other than gluten free, and of course, healthy foods. I think it's a wonder drug after the issues I experienced with SIBO! Hopefully, it will turn around for you.
  13. I don't believe they would intentionally lie through their teeth about any product they offer. And, I wouldn't count on any barista knowing about the ingredients either. Starbucks policy is for the consumer to make those decisions on their own, and they will gladly let you read the labels. That's not being mislead; it's putting the responsibility on the consumer to make a choice whether to drink it or not.
  14. I think Honeyville is the best (and most expensive) almond flour available. I don't have any trouble with it.
