  1. I am really struggling with finding meals I can make that is gluten free, dairy free, chocolate, and soy free. I am struggling to find meals and snacks for on the go and traveling. I have trouble coming up with a variety of different meals for dinner. I am getting sick of rice, potatoes, chicken, and beans as my main dish. I have yet found a good cookie recipe or any kind of dessert that isn't dry. I need so advice on where to look or if you know any good recipes. It would be very helpful if anyone had any quick dinner meals as well. I have been unable to cook more than and 20 minutes due to vertigo and balance issues. thanks
  2. I am going on a 2-day road trip and won't have access to a stove, microwave, or fridge for 5 meals. There is no place I can eat out in the area I am in. I am strictly gluten free and dairy free. What can I bring to eat that will last? Any suggestions. Gluten free bread bothers my stomach so not sure what else would last. Know any healthy gluten-free & DF muffin recipes?

  4. Going through the same thing right now. Feel so sick writing this a 12am. Any tips?
  5. I am not getting enough vitamins my body needs before and after being diagnosed with celiac. Can anyone recommend great vitamins to help me get back on track. Everywhere I go the vitamins itself contains gluten or was made a gluten facility. I don't eat a lot because I am still getting sick so I need to find a way to get more nutrients into me. Thanks!
  6. Yes, I was. I had two weak positive blood work, then an endoscopy not for celiac but was very inflamed, and one positive genetic for celiac. My diet is very limited right now. I am almost paleo. I am really struggling to find food that I can eat and not bother my stomach. I eat a lot of nuts, peanuts, beans, chicken, veggies, fruit, and soups. I have cleaned out the house from gluten (except for my dad's rolls ) I can not change out pans and cookware. I could try to get my own personal but it would be hard. How did you get glutened?
  7. I have been strictly gluten free for 90 days now. I went through a detox for two weeks after being gluten-free then started to do better but then 4 or 3 weeks ago I just got very very sick again. All my symptoms came back, but worse plus new symptoms. I have had diarrhea for 3 weeks every day now. I am in so much pain all I can do is sit in bed and go to school. Doctors won't see me because they don't know what is wrong. I am out of money for other docs. I don't know what to do or if celiac is really is my issue. So much fatigue and pain I had to quit my job and sit in bed all day. I am just getting worse and I don't know where to go for help.

  9. My whole family went gluten free. We are basically clean. We have one or two things still left in the freezer, but it's not touching anything. Could carbs or dairy be causing issues with weight and bloating? My nausea issues have decreased a lot.
  10. After two months being gluten free (diagnosed with celiac) I have gained almost 10 pounds all in my stomach. I didn't replace my diet with any processed gluten-free stuff. I am eating very healthy. Healthier than before. Why would I be gaining so much weight? My stomach is also very bloated all the time.
  11. Extreme Hunger

    Is normal to be gaining a lot of weight even if I am eating very healthy (very little packaged/processed foods)? Is it because my body is absorbing more now? I not eating anymore than i used to.
  12. I am a month and a half gluten free after being diagnosed with celiac. I have been doing well, but I have been having extreme craving and hunger. Why do I feel like I am being starved when I am eating big meals. I have been eaten a lot of protein and replacing the gluten carbs with brown rice, potatoes, beans, etc. Nothing makes the hunger and cravings stop. Even when my stomach is full and bloated I still just want to eat all the time. I have never had hunger like this before. Is it because my body is trying to heal from inflammation, lacking nutrients, or something else?
  13. Favorite Protein/power Bar?

    GFB bar- dedicated gluten-free factory i like pb and cranberry almond
  14. Yes, the acid reflux is doing better. Still having a few other issues like bloating, extreme hunger/cravings, and nausea.
