Back Again 8 Years Later

Hi all- I was diagnosed gluten sensitive and wheat allergy 8 years ago. I never experienced any symptoms and was diagnosed based upon IGA level abnormal (141) and a positive reaction to wheat under my skin during testing. Also, I have the DQ8 marker. Anyway, I was told then that I could eat gluten if I wanted to since it wasn't doing anything at the time. Fast forward 8 years- I think I need to go on a gluten free diet to help with some symptoms I have been experiencing.

My question is what is new in the gluten free world that I don't know about yet. IE - yummy bread, mainstream foods, thoughts etc.

I really am starting from scratch. I was on a gluten-free diet for a year 8 years ago but things were different then. Back then the list of mainstream food was free on this website!

Welcome back.

Do check out the products section of the board as there is a lot of info there.

The world of gluten free food is expanding daily and much more edible than 8 years ago.

Some good brands to look for: Kinnickinnick makes good breads and ready made pizza shells, bagels, doughnuts etc. Gluten Free Pantry has some great mixes. Cakes, breads, and a French bread mix that makes great pizza dough. Bakery on Main makes good granola if you like it. There are many more great products out there than these. If you have a favorite ask on the product board or in recipes what folks do as a sub.

Some companies are good at not hiding gluten, Kraft and Unilever are 2.

Many companies also put gluten info on their websites now so sometimes a quick search will give you the answer.

If you live near a Wegmans they label all their gluten free stuff with a circle G. I shop there all the time.

Health food stores are another good source.

To start some find it easiest to go with whole unprocessed food as much as possible. You will heal fastest that way.

Ask any questions you need to. Hopefully you will be feeling great soon.

Thank you for your reply. I know I used to like Kinnickinnick's white sandwich bread years ago. It was the closest thing to regular bread I could find. I remember Pamela's fudge brownies too. Yumm! The hardest thing for me will be finding a natural food store near my new house. THere was a great one where I used to live. So I have to go searching again. I don't believe there is a Wegmans near by but I am going to check. Again thanks for the great info and support. I am sure I will be asking many questions as I get back in the swing of things!

I find a lot of gluten-free foods on Amazon, too. Sometimes it is cheaper on there than buying them at my local health food stores.

Betty Crocker has gluten free brownies, yellow cake and chocolate chip cookie mix. We made the brownies and they taste exactly like the real thing. My husband and son could not tell the difference at all and neither could I. My local Stater Bros. carries all of them. I live in So Cal, so I'm not sure if they carry them everywhere.

I like Udi's bread. It's overpriced and a tiny loaf, but still it tastes good. I don't think it's amazing but it doesn't fall apart for a sandwich.

Tinkyada rice pasta is very good. I'm Italian and was really freaked about pasta but that one is pretty good.

    • That would be awesome! We could go out for coffee or round each others houses and play some games or just chat like Ennis said. By the way I suck at most games except a few so you or Ennis are almost guaranteed a win! But I have fun anyways, haha.
    • Yeah, it's when too many things happen at once and you suddenly have to take all this time and thought to deal with them, plus the stress on top of it. That's a LOT you had in a very short time. I hope things settle down for you soon but I know it takes time to figure everything out. Omg, a vacation in Hawaii or something, lol, then I'll be okay! But I think what I'm figuring out is that you have to MAKE your own mini vacations every single day or you go insane. So the suggestions people made above are really good I think to redirect your attention to goals and actively DO something towards them. Even playing games and things like that can be a goal. There's goals inside the game and also the goal of giving your mind a break and treating yourself well. I don't do this at all lately and I'm feeling it. Just spinning round inside my head and I need to STOP that now. lol. Even though you have so much going on I hope you can find time in the day too to be good to yourself.
    • I react to any product derived from cows milk but i can eat small amounts of  goats milk cheese,yogurt and kefir. However i cant drink goats milk.I think you should try goats milk kefir, it has a good amount of fat,bilions of probtics  And butter! Contains small amount of lactose (especially when you make ghee from it)  i buy goat butter  from a certified gluten free brand ( I live in Turkey , though, I dont which brands are gluten-free in your country)
    • Had my biopsy yesterday. No formal results yet but dr said there was a lot of inflammation and thickening of the wall. So he is sending me for a CT scan with IV contrast. He said he wanted to make sure there wasn’t anything “pushing” on the intestines. This has panicked me. Anyone have similar issues? He also said I had Duodenitis which I have read can be caused from Celiac. Thoughts?
    • If it is a lactose issue it will probably still bother you, early on over 10 years ago with my lactose intolerance I tried the goats cheese, it was not as painful but it still caused issues.
      You mention nuts, tried nut butters? I tolerate nut butters and cheese made with nuts very well. Homemade cashew cheese is wonderful but being not a true nit it can be iffy with people. I also make a coconut cheese that is much cheaper, but grainy but works in a pinach. I love a few different cheeses from the store. I have a list of cheese products that are non dairy on the gluten-free food list I composed.

      Avocado is also another fat, some people have issues with it but I find it very easy to digest. I love it in all forms and just finished off a big bowl of homemade guacamole, and a batch of avocado icecream I made up. >.< I have a recipe for even making frosting with it. Pairs well with eggs and the grain free toast I use.

      Many celiac have dairy intolerance at least starting off due  to damaged villi and not being able to produce enough of the enzymes to break it down, some like me it is life. I talked and convinced myself that dairy is evil with various reading, I meal really why would we suck on another animals teat for its milk for ITS babies ....just does not make sense logically.
