  1. Just wondering what the ingredient in chicken broth (ie. collage Inn, Swansons) that means it has gluten. I'm finding as I research ingredients that there are differences in what people say are safe and unsafe. For example, "hydrolyzed veg. protein" - I've read two different opinions. Thanks
  2. Wow - everyone's advice has been so helpful - I've actually been taking notes on all of your favorite items and suggestions. A couple of questions - are modified food starch or maltodextrin bad? Is there gluten in Advil? thanks
  3. I've been going through some of my recipes as we speak, and I do see many will be fine. Some, though, like chicken pie, some of my chinese recipes (ie. hoisen sauce, oyster sauce - are these ok?) and what do I do about my spinach pie recipe - that one looks like a tough one. Is there a good dough for that? a question about dining out- I have read how difficult this is. Since there are so many home recipes that work, why can't eating at a good restaurant work? Is it because you don't know about the seasonings?
  4. more thanks - (I wrote my last reply before a bunch of your replies showed up) You have given my lots of ideas to start with. I did go to a health food store yesterday and I couldn't believe how expensive the products were. You gave me lots of beginning ideas. I didn't realize how wheat based my diet is. Most of my recipes come from my mom - who was Italian. You know what I'm really going to miss - maybe you can help - dipping a wonderful 7-grain bread in seasoned extra virgin olive oil. Do you actually have gluten-free bread that can compare??
  5. I was just diagosed with celiac disease - is it common to have a normal biopsy and an elevated Iga blood test and be diagnosed with celiac? My doc says that means I have a mild case. Can this particular blood test be indicative of anything else? Does a mild case mean you don't have to be 100% gluten-free? Can a mild case get worse? And finally, if it is "mild" should I respond faster than someone who isn't mild?
  6. thank you for your replies - it's just so overwhelming - there's so much to learn - I didn't even think of substituting flour with corn starch for my sauces. I have so many family recipes - do you find you can substitute ingrediants to make them work? My family loves chicken soup - are Swansons or Collage Inn broth gluten-free? What do you use to substitue bread crumb toppings or flour coated meats?
  7. I was just diagnosed with celiac disease last month - still not completely convinced i have it. (My biopsy was normal and only my Iga was elevated; but I've had diarrhea for a little over a year) Please forgive me if I make this too long, but I've been reading posts here and decided I need your support. I wasn't going to start this diet until after the holidays, but I've been feeling really awful this past week (bone pain, and now a "buzzing" in my leg muscles), so I thought I would try the diet now and see if I feel a difference. Has anyone had that kind of symptom? I'm worried it's something else and my doc missed it. Anyway, I don't know how you all can live like this - I might sound like a real wimp, but this is SO hard. I cook for 7 people in my family and I don't know if I can do this. Today I am so hungry - whatever I eat I don't feel satisfied. I've been trying to snack on nuts and popcorn, fruit. I can't even think about supper tonight or the next night. Help!
