  1. Hi Laura..............I'm experimenting with bread recipes also, and I noticed this one that you posted only has 1/2 C potato starch and 1C cornstarch. Is this correct? It seems like alot of cornstarch, but I'm pretty new at this. Thanks!!
  2. I recently purchased the new Cuisinart Bread Machine. It has a special setting for "Gluten Free" as well as "Low Carb". I made one of the recipes and the bread weighs about 12 lbs. Tastes like a brick. I think I forgot to warm the milk before putting it in. Otherwise, it has a nice recipe book, but it asks for many different flours and a lot of cornstarch (which I could taste). What's the secret for making gluten-free bread???
  3. Thanks for the reply...............I've been on this diet for about 10 days and because I don't have immediate consequences, i.e., gastric stuff, etc., I'm having a difficult time rationalizing this diet. I went to a gluten free store today and purchased a bunch of stuff. Everything is so darned expensive! Yikes I'm not feeling much different than I did when I was queen of fiber, but I have been sleeping much better.......... I saw on your info that you were diagnosed through Entero Labs.....I was too!!!
  4. Hello............I'm new to this forum and look forward to learning more about this illness and how everyone's coping. I've just been diagnosed with gluten intolerance, but don't experience the most common symptoms. I have no stomach/bowel problems. I do have a history of depression, endometriosus, osteoarthritis, etc..... My dilemna is the fact that I don't feel any different when not eating gluten. It's difficult for me to abide by this diet when I don't get any instance "consequences". I hope I'm explaing myself...I'm so confused!! I'm hungry a lot, am sticking to the diet, and have gained 4 lbs.!! What the heck! Any suggestions/thought are appreciated.
