My mom got me this magazine for my birthday and I just now got my first issue. WOW!!! I am super impressed. I expected the magazine to be much thicker than it is. They make up for the lack in bulk with their content though. The focus, at least in this issue, seems to really focus on gluten free/casein free diets. There are wonderful articles on living allergen free and how to manage. There is even an extensive recipe section with delicious looking recipes. I can't wait to try some of these, they look so good. I've been trying to limit my casein lately and these recipes are all gluten/casein free. Even the advertisements are useful for a Celiac. I would definitely recommend this magazine to anyone with Celiac disease and/or other allergies.

On a side note, Woodchuck Cider has an ad in this magazine. How cool is that!!! I didn't know they were actually marketing their cider to Celiacs. Way way cool for a company like that to discover us as a niche market. If only more mainstream companies could discover the "Celiac loyalty".

Yep--my house is the same way! My husband and son subscribe to every car magazine known to man--and keep every issue. I have to say I'm the same way with Living Without and Body and Soul--never know when I'll need to refer to them. :ph34r:

We're drowning in magazines :o

Do these recipes use a lot of soy? I may need to check this one out. I got one issue of gluten free living, wasn't super impressed....a lot of money.

Andrea, I got one issue of Gluten Free Living and was disgusted. I didn't like it at all. I felt as though it was entirely too opinionated.

The recipes in the Fall 2006 Living Without magazine mostly seem to be soy free. There are a few in which I noticed soy as an ingredient, but certainly not most. Actually, as I read through them, they almost all are soy free. And there are LOTS of them too, it's not just 3 or 4 recipes. I'd say there are well over 30 recipes (I stopped counting at 31)! Almost all appear to be gluten/casein/soy free.

Yeah, there are quite a few of us here who aren't the biggest fans of the magazine. Hmm. Well, the magazine is for all types of food allergies, so I would say most of the recipes would be easy for you to make soy free if they aren't already. All the recipes are gluten-free and most are cf. But the instructions usually talk about substituting ingredients too.

Thanks you two. :D

I will definately check this magazine out. The gluten free store I shop at has them I think. That's where I got the other magazine.

Count me in on loving the living without. I'm not so impressed with the other one. ANd yes, count me in on being a pack-rat. I've collected recipes for years & years. My husband told me if I lived to be 190 I couldn't make every recipe I have collected ..plus the hundreds of cookbooks. I have broken down a few times & donated some of my cookbooks for charity......Oh boy, someday my kids are going to have to get rid of all these !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
    • Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,
    • LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop eating gluten. That said have you been checked for a UTI infection.  It is not uncommon to have low grade fevers when you have one. My friend at work recently had a bad spell of health and the only symptom she complained about before coming down with a bird flu virus was a low grade persistent fever (not for a few months but for a few years). The last time I had bronchitis before it became pneumonia I had a low grade fever in the few months before my pneumonia diagnosis. Keep looking is my advice to you.  Low grade fevers are fighting off an infection . .  sometimes we don't know why until other symptom's present themselves. I do know that when I went gluten free most of my chronic health issues got better.  I can only assume it (gluten) was triggering inflammation in my body. I hope you find out what is the cause of your fever and that being gluten free helps it. ****** this is not medical advice just some of the ways going gluten free helped me and some possible other causes of a low grade fever that have happened to myself or others that I know of. posterboy,
    • "If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other.   If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can not have Celiac.   See if your insurance will pay for one of this test.   If not, I think you can pay out of pocket for about $300.
