  1. Barabara's Puffins are fabulous. Gorilla Munch is good and the Panda Puffs are also excellent, but my vote is the Puffins.
  2. Las Vegas

    Why thank you! I plan on taking plenty of goodies with me, but I don't want to be stuck in the room all week. I was hoping to hear someone talk about one GREAT restaurant that caters to us Celiacs....I could just chew on lettuce all week!
  3. Las Vegas

    Calling all Celiacs! My husband and I are going to Las Vegas in July, and I'm haing a lot of anxiety about being away from home for so long and without my bread and acess to gluten-free goodies. I'm planning on calling the Hotel (Mandalay Bay) before we part to discuss my situation and to see if they have any good recommendations, but I was wondering if anyone has been to Las Vegas and had any great experience with any restaurants? Much thanks!!
  4. Sterling Inn, Pa & The Grainless Baker

    That's great! I'm trying to see if they can find a store close to my home to sell their products. Hey we shouldn't be limited to a number of cookies. We've had to suffer long enough. I say, "Eat away!"
  5. I've enjoyed Gluten Free Gourmet by Bette Hagman.
  6. Hello Everyone! I have to say I just had the greatest experience this weekend. My in-laws, husband and I just got back from South Sterling, PA (in the Poconos) and we stayed at The Sterling Inn where I was treated like royalty! We called ahead of time (after 5 other calls) and once we mentioned my diet they immediately were helpful stating that they have a bakery nearby that provides gluten-free breads, muffins and other desserts and specialties. They said they would have that available for me, plus some soy milk for me since I can't have dairy either. When dinner arrived, the waiter and the manager both knew my situation, were able to tell me what dinner items I could eat and what items they could alter for me. They brought me fresh white rice bread and I ate it while everyone else ate their wheat bread from the basket instead of staring at them like usual. I felt so special. Then they brought me a gluten-free brownie for dessert, and for breakfast they had a cinnamon roll for me while everyone else got coffee cake and they all tried my cinnamon roll and said it tasted better than the coffee cake! The best part of it all, was that they gave me the remainder of the food that wasn't consumed while we were there. So I walked away with a half loaf of bread, a small tray of brownies and the remainder 2 cinnamon rolls! So I just couldn't wait to get home to share this awesome news and the links to the places: www.thesterlinginn.com www.thegrainlessbaker.com Let me know if anyone else has stayed here, I would love to share my experience! All smiles, Emily
  7. Yes true. It's so easy to blame everything on gluten..haha. I'm so frustrated and just trying to find an answer. thanks for your input. Emily
  8. Anyone get reoccuring urinary tract infections maybe as a link to gluten or other food allergy? I used to get them frequently, about once a month, but then I've been clear for about a year, now I've had 3 again in the past 5 months. I was wondering if anyone else has had the same issues? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you! Emily
  9. Hello Faithperson, first of all welcome to the site! This is a wonderful resource of information! Second, I firmly believe that the gluten free diet will assist with your migraines and your iron depletion. Good luck and keep us posted on your status! Thanks, Emily
  10. H Pylori

    This concerns me. I've never heard of H Pylori before now, but I get those crazy hunger pains all the time. I eat about 6 times a day and it definitely makes me feel better after I eat. What other symptoms can occur?
  11. Do Your Legs Ever Get So Numb.....

    I will get night sweats too...I used to get them all the time before going gluten-free. Now if I accidentially ingest it I'll get cramps or I call them charley-horse in my feet and I'll get nose bleeds too - which I think is weird. So pretty much anytime something weird happens I contribute it to gluten. What helps if I accidentally ingest it, I'll drink LOTS of water to help flush it out of my system...take fiber pills to help "push" it through and take a b-complex vitamin because it makes you pee...which in turns helps flush it out! oooh.. the lengths we'll go.....hehe Oh and thanks for letting us know about the bars, I'll make sure not to buy those. And sorry you had to go through great lengths to find it out. Emily
  12. Wow...how miserable! I would've walked away too! In regards to your adrenal fatigue, I would recommend some relaxation therapies! Regular Massage Therapy helps restore the body back to homeostasis and regulate the endocrine system to your normal levels. I might also consult with a reputable Acupuncturist in your area...Help your body heal itself Just a thought. Emily
  13. Gerd !

    A natural form of medication is Ginger Root. I haven't tried this, but my good friend uses it often for her reflux. She gets it in pill form from the Heath Food Store. Emily
  14. My Journey

    Hello Everyone! I've been watching the entries these past couple months and really getting a kick out of the responses. My favorite today was, "annoying comments." HAHA! Been there before...sigh! I thought I would go ahead and make my first entry and become of part of this wonderful support group! My history starts back when I was a wee little girl belching beyond belief and even embarressing my 3 brothers because of my skills. Aparently they weren't skills but a disorder that I just discovered back around June of 2005. Everything started to get worse, very worse. So, I made an appointment with a holistic doctor to mainly find out why my mentrual cycles were so crazy, and we ended up talking most of the time about all of the digestive disorders I was going through (I was thinking they were just normal). She suggested a book "Eat Right for Your Type" by Peter D'Adamo. So immediately I got the book, and followed the basic steps of 'wheat is your enemy!' and WALAH! Cured! I was amazed after about 24 hours of not eating wheat, bread, pasta etc. I was feeling like a new woman and tickled pink about my new discovery. I did go through a slight depression and some denial after realizing gluten was in everything. Then I just got tired of feeling so ill and told myself it was time to be true to myself and to my poor abused intestines. Needless to say the menstrual cycles regulated too as a part of my lifestyle change. My favorite bread I found is Millet Bread by Deland Bakery and I buy it at Health Foods Unlimited here in Dayton, Ohio. You can also buy it online, and their bagels are scrumptious! I also read a book called "Dangerous Grains" by James Braly which REALLY helped my understand the actual physiological effects of what's really going on in our bodies when we eat wheat or gluten. I'm the type of person that wants to know how everything works, even right down to the cellular level. Another book I really enjoy is "Gluten Free Groumet" by Bette Hagman. Every recipe I've tried in there has been fabulous and delicious. She really has discovered ways to make gluten-free bread very moist. So right now I'm just living my life reading labels and enjoying the act of cooking gluten free meals that my husband will enjoy also. He's been such a blessing in my life and so supportive! Don't get me wrong, I have my bad days of depression and feeling ill if I accidentially ingest it, but I'm trying to maintain the positive attitidue, I guess that's the only way to survive! But I wanted to thank everyone for their humor and good insight to this new lifestyle we've all been a part of!! Emily LMT
