Hello everyone. I'm new to this site and newly gluten-free. I have been trying different types of beers to see if I can find one that tastes like Bud Lite or similar brands. I don't like dark beers, and I was hoping there was a beer that tasted closer to a lite beer. I have tried Redbridge, but it has an odd flavor to me. I've had ciders, but I'm sick of those. I've tried Omission, and that was absolutely disgusting to me. Bards is ok, but still not lite beer. I know that it will be difficult. I tried the raspberry New Planet which was good, but I'm thinking it was only good because it tasted like raspberries instead of beer. Any other suggestions?

Hi JJbrigade,

 

Did you try the New Planet Pale Ale?  I prefer a dark beer so I am not personally looking for the light beers.  If you do a search for gluten free beer you will find a number of site and the Association is one of those and has quiet a few reviews and there should be one or two for you to try from that list. :)

Yes, I have tried the New Planet. It is better than most, but still not like a "light" beer. I honestly don't think there is such a thing out there! I tried New Grist, which I think is the closest thing I have been able to find to a light beer. I may just have to go with that until someone starts making new ones. Gluten free foods/beverages are getting to be more popular I think.

You say you're newly diagnosed... Do you have any problems drinking alcohol? I know it's subjective but I had a few ciders a while back (and an omission) and felt pretty crappy afterwards. I plan on holding off for a few months but was just wondering how we as a collective group monitor and know when to come back to a certain substance?

 

Thanks!

I have tried ciders and I am fine with those. I've had omission, and I don't remember any issues with that either, other than the fact that I didn't like the taste. Now when I drink I just go for mixed drinks. Most rum is gluten-free and I haven't had any issues with that.

    • My suspicion is dehydration caused by too much fiber. Combined with your cold, fever and perhaps any medications, loss of appetite and the high fiber content of the chia, slowing down the passage of the post nasal drip thereby giving it more time to irritate. I had a similar experience with Graviola during a phase of anorexia, when I would take it without food. By the way, Cold-Eze does work.
    • Welcome!   Let me put your mind at ease.  While is true that some celiacs have fertility issues, it is usually because they are undiagnosed and not being treated.   I think your approach of focusing on your health for the next six months to a year prior to conception is an excellent idea.  Not only will it help insure a healthy pregnancy, but you will be able to handle and care for that baby for the next few decades!   I was in a dedicated gluten free bakery and saw a young family with a six month old baby boy.  I love babies and struck up a conversation.  They said that the wife had been sick with odd issues  and finally got diagnosed with celiac disease.  Six months  this later, she got pregnant after they had been trying for three years.   So, learn the gluten free diet.  Choose healthy foods and try to avoid processed junk foods (not good for anybody), excercise gently, reduce the stress in your life, and I bet you will be fine!   Green stools can be a sight of rapid transit. It could be gluten, a virus, or food poisoning.  Stay hydrated and you will be fine.  Celiacs have leaky guts, so you might have developed an intolerance.  How long have you been gluten free?  Try reading our Newbie 101 thread located at the top of the “Coping” section of the forum.   Take care.  
    • I have granuloma on both of my feet and got them after I had my daughter. She's now 2!! Not eating gluten has not effected it in the least.  I had a major flair up after my colonoscopy and an exploratory surgery, neither had anything to do with my feet . 
    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
    • Thinking I saw this earlier on another post....anyway I do have a thought on this. I get little blood blisters and sores in my mouth, and on my tongue from things I ended with allergies to. With celiac being a autoimmune disease it can sometimes effect your immune system, like make you more prone to random food allergies, histamine issues, food intolerance issues, and sensitivities. You might want to keep a food diary and mix up what you eating avoiding foods you have been eating for up to a week changing out sauces, oils, spices completely and see if you notice anything. If I eat anything with corn I get blood blisters in my mouth by example, a high PH food like if I use a undiluted vinegar on something had in the past giving me little sores...not had this happen in awhile. In the food diary keep track of the sores, body temperature, stool habits, how you feel, etc. Every little detail and see if you find some connection with foods you eat. Try a lower histamine diet perhaps if it is related to that.
