 hi , 

i was doing alright following the gluten/dairy free diet , then i needed to give up nightshades and now i feel like everythings gone wrong. i just keep making stupid mistakes. i wanted somethin different for tea so bought a stirfry with sweet an sour sauce - only realised it had peppers in it  an the sauce had peppers and tomato,s , when i was cooking it!!. then bought my rice milk but there was another on special offer so i bought them- its only rice dream ive bought!!!!

rice dream by the way in the u.k. is on the same stand with the gluten free products!!

Hi

Been there!

It's like getting bogged down in a swamp and like 'what the hell can I actually eat???'

All I can say is that it gets better and it gets much easier - I guess, with practice.

I am sure some people are brilliant from day 1 but I suspect for most, it's a big learning curve. Getting it wrong is part of learning and providing you keep at it - it will improve along with how you feel.

Hope you feel better soon :) .

Awwwww, this happened to me too.........I know exacty how you feel, I think I'm about 1 step in front of you.

I'm the sort of person who cooks everything from scratch, or so I thought.....so was amazed at how much gluteny processed stuff I had to throw out. And just when I thought I had it cracked, I poisoned us (me: celiac, hubby: has DH) with Worcester sauce that had gluten.........then just feeling like I got gluten sorted, all these other intolerances became obvious......I can't remember the order, it just all came tumbling in, one after the other, and another, including nightshades. I can't tell you how many times I spent hours researching recipes that only included things I could eat, and hours I'd spent cooking and baking, only to find out after one bite that I couldn't eat it!!! I either added a small amount of something I knew I was intolerant to, thinking it would be fine, since it was such a small amount (doh!), or I missed it, like using gluten-free baking powder.....containing corn.....(first stomach pain, then extreme bloating, then when I finally deflate, the smell could make paint peel, lol).....

Oh, and there was this paleo chocolate cheesecake I spent nearly a whole day making........all I did was lick the bowl on that one!

Anyway, depending on how you feel when you read this, you could find it depressing, but I hope not, it's kinda funny, why am I so obsessed with finding more foods to eat, when there is tonnes left to eat that I know won't upset me?

So, this week, I'm making peace with food and sticking to things that I KNOW don't upset me. 2 things I am finding helpful:

1. Making conscious substitutions, like roast parsnip chunks instead of roast potatoes, or pureed veggies instead of mashed potato and "spiralised veggies" instead of pasta.

2. Building a weekly menu of meals that I will come back to each week to take all the thought and effort out of the choices and prep. (I usually like to just buy lots of food, then just 'see what I fancy' or stand in front of the fridge for inspiration, so this planning is not natural to me). Last night we had "shephers pie", which was diced turkey thigh cooked with mushrooms onions and pureed beans to thicken the gravy, then topped with carrots and cauliflower that were pureed with salt pepper and vegetable oil and sprinkled with chopped almonds.

This morning was scrambled eggs, yum.

Hope something I said helps, you are not alone, and it does get better, it's just a process that must be endured....

Hang in there.  I'm 9 months in and have recently made a doozy of a mistake. It happens.... I think as long as we learn from our mistakes we'll be okay. :)

hi there;

 

thanks for all your reply;s

just havin a major stress out this morning, suppose i was kinda hoping it would all go away lol.

 

i had to buy vanicream soap from america to see if the rash on my face went away. well i ran out of soap and because the rash was still there,( but i think it has gone down a bit )- i decided i wasnt gonna spend that much on soap again. big mistake- i spent monday night looking like a beetroot lol, then desperately searchin the internet for new soap!!! and ive spent the rest of the week throwing food away!!!

 

i think ive eaten some chinese crackers that didnt agree with me - although i cant see what it is in them thats disagreeing with me, an its been downhill from there lol

tried lactose free cheese tonight- well i now know it must be the caesin that i have problems with,an i,ll try the corncobs again tomorrow.

 

gonna make a big pot of veg and lentil soup that i know is ok - that,ll sort me out

Pour the lentils onto a plate and make sure there are not non-lentils lurking in there, pick them out.  Then put the lentils in a colander and rinse those suckers before you cook them.  

 

Hear you on the soaps.  Every time I get fond of one, the manufacturers would change the formula.  :angry:   Do you have the Dr Bronner's castile soap there ?   I have had some pretty spectacular skin blow ups from toiletries.  Apple cider vinegar and water mixed 1 part vinegar to 7 parts water is a great hair rinse, and then a tiny dab of pure coconut oil or shea butter can be used for the hair conditioner by putting it into your palm and then rubbing it into your damp hair.  If you can't find shampoo that agrees with you, rinse your hair, rinse it again with some baking soda in water, and then rinse with water, thoroughly, before doing the vinegar/water rinse. (I put the vinegar water in a spray bottle and spritz it on after towel drying).   Pure coconut oil or pure sweet almond oil can be used for skin moisturizer.  Pure baking soda can also work well as a deodorant.

    • I'm sorry I don't  In fact I just looked and only found this on the uk datasheet; So maybe I was wrong!
    • I am Catholic and I totally understand. At my home parish, there is a layman who has celiac.  He has arranged to have these hosts ordered from the Benedictine sisters of Perpetual adoration. http://www.benedictinesisters.org/ At the beginning  mass, anyone who needs a gluten-free hose can take it from the main receptacle and place it in a special pix.  The priest has them and they are consecrated and with the priest.    He is handling the gluten and the gluten-free host back and forth.  But, I talked to this fellow and he said that he has not had any symptoms of cross-contamination and he is fairly sensitive.   I am celiac but really don't get any obvious symptoms so I can't tell you if cross-contamination is an issue or not   I also partake in the wine,  but I try to sit in the first or second row( to be the first to drink the wine)  to limit cross-contamination.  I make sure to be aware if the priest Saying mass puts a small piece of bread in each chalice (then I do not partake.) psawyer is right though.  Consuming either form of  eucharist is adequate and acceptable.   Often times I just take the wine.   I have considered becoming a Eucharistic minister.  This would completely eliminate the possibility of cross-contamination. If you were the first person to drink from the chalice, there would be no chance of cross-contamination at all.  Traveling is tough.   I often times abstain when I am traveling  but many parishes now offer gluten-free hosts  so I'm sure you could research it  and contact the parish ahead of time. One of my best friends has Ncgs  and he can take the gluten-free host with no trouble.   I know a priest whose nephew is celiac in central Texas. . I haven't talk to him personally about the situation (just his SIL) but I'm sure  he would be happy to talk about it if needed.  I don't know what part of Texas you're in  but let me know.
    • Do you know the specific name of the wheat protein in Nizoral? Thank you!
    • Welcome to the community here. I am not Catholic, but have been a member here for many years, and a moderator for ten. This topic comes up from time to time. I am Episcopalian, similar in most beliefs. Talk to your priest. In my church, receiving one form of communion is sufficient to meet the obligation, so I usually just take the cup. I arrange with the priest to be first in line, lest the cup be contaminated from another communicant. For the wafer to qualify in the Roman Catholic Church, it must be made from wheat. There are some sources of low-gluten wafers, but I have no personal experience with the. The Episcopalian (Anglican) church allows a wafer that does not contain wheat.
    • What is the best way to phrase an email to a company, when trying to investigate whether or not their product(s) is safe for a super sensitive to consume? here's an example of an email correspondence that turned out favorably:  Thank you for contacting MillerCoors. We appreciate your interest in our products.

      Crispin Brown's Lane Cider is brewed and filled with equipment dedicated to only Crispin products. In order for Crispin to be certified as gluten free it has to pass standards set by the Gluten Intolerance Group, this includes gluten free ingredients and elimination of cross contamination. We hope you found this information helpful.

      Thanks again for contacting MillerCoors.

      Sincerely, 

      MillerCoors Consumer Affairs Department
      Ref: Case#N22302690

      hi, i am a super-sensitive celiac and am wondering about any possible trace gluten being present in your products, the brownslane classic dry cider in particular. is this made in a dedicated gluten-free facility or at least gluten-free equipment? also are their any additives/fining agents or anything used in the brewing process that could contain gluten? and lastly, what gluten-free certification organization do y'all use and what ppm level do you test down to?
