  1. Yeast Substitutes?

    Bette Hagman has a whole section on yeast-free breads in her "Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Bread", more than twenty varieties. From a brief perusal, it looks as though she relies on baking powder and baking soda for leavening. Hope this helps!
  2. Feeling Worse

    A P.S. . .I took no meds, except Coke, wait a minute, I did have an anti-nausea pill that a physician prescribed and it didn't occur to me to check before I took it! I will do that. . . Thanks again. . .
  3. Feeling Worse

    Thank you, both of you. I hadn't considered that the intestinal/stomach virus could have further weakened a system that was just beginning to heal. I had wondered when friends and family seem to recover so much more quickly than I did. I spent some time reviewing this topic before I wrote in. This helped as I realize I'm not the only one who gets discouraged or fearful. I am in a fortunate position as I enjoy cooking/baking and have for years and therefore have many more options than most. . .Thanks again. It helps to have a place to post my concerns!
  4. My naturopath/MD suggested two years ago that I remove all gluten from my diet as I had salivary antibodies to gliadin. As a "food enthusiast" and serious bread baker, I was unwilling to do that until the end of January this year. I felt so rotten after baking like a crazy person for my family's Christmas visit that I was willing to try anything. I have had symptoms for years: anemia, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, a rash that moves around my body, fatigue, other embarrassing symptoms. I began to feel better fairly quickly and was encouraged until about three weeks ago. I got the stomach flu that is going around, and was sick for several days. Since then I have not been able to shake a low grade nausea and a great fatigue than I experienced before. I wanted to check here and see if others had had similar experiences. Thank you!
