  1. It seems to me that as difficult as it is for her to live sometimes, I have had no major issues converting all of our food from gluten-ful to gluten-free, even things that are normally breaded and stuff. What kind of pizza does your family like? My girlfriend craves st. louis style pizza. Also, try giving him meringue cookies too, those have been a hit too!! Also, my girlfried just passed on that if he likes Macaroni and Cheese I think you can take a box of Kraft Mac and Cheese, dump out the noodles, use gluten-free noodles, and the Kraft cheese sauce. She found that on another post on the forum here. My new project is come up with a gluten free pasta that looks, tastes, and feels just like gluten-ful wheat pasta. Happy Cooking!!
  2. Newly Diagnosed Celiac...

    WOW that is a great idea! My girlfriend would love that! How did you find out that the cheese sauce was gluten free?
  3. She is having a very difficult time with the diet. She goes on binges with only certain foods..pizza and doughnuts. She knows better than to eat the food, but I guess she lets her guard down...She had been to the doctor several times, and doesn't want an offcial dx because of insurance reasons. The doctors she has seen have told her to follow the diet because it relieves some of the pain. I guess the main reason that she doesn't stick to the diet is because she feels that sometimes it doesn't work and as hard as she tries she still gets sick. She is only 20, and it makes her feel like a social outcast. We are working on the binges, but any extra advice would be nice...this has been a huge lifestlye change for ALL of us!!
  4. Thank you very much! She was unofficially dx'd January of 2005, and had had major dietary issues for years before that. She does extremely well with the diet, but it's not easy for anyone! Thanks again!
  5. Hola, First time logged on here. In anyone else's experience has there been a direct correlation (connection) between extreme fatigue, nausea, stomach pain, and flu (or cold like) symptoms without a fever? Or sleeping a full 10-11 hours and still not feeling rested or refreshed? My girlfriend is celiac and I'm still learning about it all to make to it easier for her. We can't tell if all of those symptoms are just part of having Celiac's or if she keeps getting into gluten some where or if it could residual effects of a gluten-binge from over a week ago? Any advice, information, etc. would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!!
