  1. I am in desperate need of some calcium supplements but am unsure of which ones are free of gluten/soy/casein ... any suggestions?
  2. Hello, I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for casein/gluten/soy substitutes for cottage cheese, yogurt, sour cream ...
  3. Thank you all for the help! Recently I have eaten something with soy or milk bc i have no energy and am completely lethargic - in the way that only soy or milk (and gluten) make me feel. Kind of depressed about it. I really appreciate your feedback though.
  4. Greetings all. Slightly frustrated; strike that - really frustrated. I'm gluten/soy and casein intolerant -- and feel like i'm pushing the envelope with corn. Recently I've been looking the other way if something has a little soy in it -- not a good idea. There are so many questions I have for my fellow intolerance-ites. But let me start with one -- do you know of any calcium supplements w/o gluten/soy/milk? Calcium is my big worry right now.
  5. Maintaining Diet While Traveling

    First time blogger here! Anxiety while traveling is a real diet killer. Let me set the background of that previous statement. As an exercise buff (pardon the pun) and weight conscious working girl with celiac sprue, maintaining a slim figure is the one solace that helps me deal w/and accept my celiac sprue (and soy/casein intolerances.) Perhaps the fate of a life of extremely limited food choices, makes it easier for me to lose weight (something I feel entitled to after being diagnosed) but it does not mean that maintaining my figure is a facile task. Being restricted to a gluten-free, soy-free and casein-free diet is a blessing and a curse - the diet isn't so hard to keep up when I plan ahead and prepare my food for the week ahead. It poses challenges, however when I have to travel and leave my comfort zone of a gluten free kitchen - with a foreman grill, fridge, freezer, cutlery, etc. Traveling or not having gone to the grocery store before the work week starts always creates a level of anxiety that leads me to overeat and push the limits on my diet. Usually it means multiple trips to the grocery store, especially when traveling. Since protein, turkey breasts, london broil steaks and other lean meats provide the bulk of my protein sources, it's also difficult, even when I do plan ahead, to find a place to store my food in a refridgerator and then to heat it up - without putting out a lot of people and causing a ruckus. Ultimately I end up resorting to peanuts/nuts/other fatty sources of protein when away from home and high fructose fruits - even candy - like peanut m&ms or butterfingers (pushing the limits) because my body won't tolerate high levels of milk in yogurt, cottage cheese. (For some reason, chocolate doesn't affect me in a very noticeable way, so I slip it on in to my diet.) Then, I end up putting on pounds... gaining weight ... which results in a extremely low self-esteem in both my appearance and my resolve in sticking to the diet. Does anyone out there have this problem? How do you deal with it? Any suggestions? My next blog will concern Weight Watchers ...
