  1. I'll check back with you towards the end of next week if I haven't heard from you. Thank you!
  2. I don't think I'll ever forget the texture and flavor of wheat pasta either...but it's not worth the sickness to have it anymore. But I sure do miss it! Do you have a recipe for homemade pasta? I am sensitive to corn gluten but I'd like to try the buckwheat...we've got some gluten-free buckwheat flour.
  3. I use to eat bread, pasta with almost every meal... Mac & Cheese was my fav! Looking back, I was killing myself and didn't know. All I knew was I stayed so sick all the time... and the last 5 years was the worst. I'm not much for sauces, basically, give me a piece of meat, pasta, beans or greens and I'm good to go. My wife tried to fix 'fancy' dishes when we first married (3 years ago)...with sauces...really didn't impress me. I was raised on a vegetable farm...food wasn't fancy but it was filling BTW, she fixed breaded cube steaks, fried diced potatoes and carrots for supper tonight. Not much on the carrots but the cube steak and potatoes...made this man smile.
  4. Thank you for all the great information about gluten-free dog/cat food. I'll have the wife look into it. Currently tho, it's taking all we can muster to keep my sensitivities in check. Being new to all the pitfalls, every day is a challenge to keep me from being glutenized from the most innocent intentions. I'm a pasta & meat person, I can't eat the pasta made with corn and I find the rice pasta to be too mushy and sweet tasting. At $4 a bag for pasta...Any suggestions?
  5. We have a membership to Sams...no Costco in Lakeland, FL) but they don't carry any gluten-free dog/cat foods. I believe the closest Costco to us is in Orlando. Sams does have a 'request box'...I could put in a request that they carry it. What's the brand that you get at Costco?
  6. Hi all, I'm new to all this...only 3 months or so. Being a novice it's been quite a ride but at least now I know why I've been so sick for so long. Not only am I extremely sensitive to wheat gluten, I have discovered that corn gluten and MSG makes me just as ill. I can't even feed our animals anymore as the dog food has gluten in it and just touching the dry food or particles in the air (I guess)...my eyes begin to itch and water, I start sneezing, runny nose, then the 'tummy rolls'...they are the worst! I get so nauseous...in waves. My question is, I wear dentures and from time to time I get sore spots/cuts on my gums. I use to use Benzodent but when I used it yesterday I felt all the symptoms of having been glutenized. I mentioned it to my wife and she looked it up on line...seems there is something called eugenol in the gel that she thinks may have gluten in it. She also tried to query Poligrip Comfort Seal Strips but couldn't find anything. Does anyone know if either of these are gluten free?
