Hello,

I only found out that I was gluten and lactose intolerant 2 months before moving to China. Right when I start getting comfortable with what I can eat, we move to a place that has a limited selection of gluten free items. I have found one place that makes gluten free bread here and it was inedible (and thats being kind). I don't have an oven, so I am thinking of buying a bread maker and a gluten free baking cookbook. I feel like I might have to order a bread maker from Amazon and have it shipped here...because I want the instructions and machine to be in English. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you -Katharine

--one box of 365 Gluten Free Sandwich Bread Mix (Whole Foods)

--the stuff the box tells you to use---warm water, butter, eggs, enclosed yeast packet

The Directions.

--prepare dough according to the instructions on the box for oven-method.

(I always use hot water with gluten-free baking. The boxes say luke-warm, but I use hot.)

--spray a loaf pan with cooking spray, dump in batter

--put the loaf pan into a 6qt oval crockpot--you don't need to wait for rising time, it will rise in the crock

--prop the lid ajar with a chopstick or spoon

--cover and cook on high for 2-5 hours. This loaf was done right around 3 3/4 hours.

--remove from pan; let cool before slicing

She has a couple of books too: Stephanie O'Dea- Make it Fast, Cook it Slow and more Make it Fast, Cook it Slow

Try to have a gluten-free card in Mandarin with you wherever you go, even if you speak Mandarin because explaining gluten-free will be very difficult.

    • Thank you all so much.  It's so great to know there are people out there that have shared my experience. I was feeling quite alone in this. I could never believe that I just had anxiety, and that was that. There has to be a reason for my body to act this way. I feel validated,and hopeful and that's a huge thing for me. I'm going to see my doctor next week, and see what she thinks. I'm hopeful that with all my symptoms (anxiety, skin rashes for months, sensitivity to light|sound, headaches, vertigo, temper) she won't shrug me off. My mom has Crohn's disease so maybe a connection. Thanks again for your advice and your ear, it truly helps.
    • I do buy Plantar's nuts too.so if you are looking for peanuts, cashews, etc
    • I have bought nuts from other suppliers like these black walnuts that only process their nuts (no fancy flavorings...just these black walnuts): https://black-walnuts.com/ You do need to confirm that nuts are not processed on equipment shared with wheat if they are not certified gluten-free or in a shell by calling.  So, mostly, being lazy, I just order from Nuts.com.  
    • We were diagnosed with Diabetes first, but I think she already had celiac prior.   Our doctor told us that she has celiac only 3 months after diabetes.   Her TTG was off the chart high.   Our endo offered to formally diagnose her with celiac without the endoscopy, but I refused to believe she had celiac.   She had no symptoms.   An endoscopy confirmed it.   We went gluten free.  She still is a silent celiac.   We would never know about her celiac if it weren't for her type 1 diabetes.   They did all sorts of blood test on her.   I think her ttg was already off the chart high when she was first diagnosed with diabetes, but since the diabetes is so overwhelming at first, they simply waited 3 months before telling us about the celiac too.  I think this was a kind thing to do. Looking back, she did have a symptom, she stopped growing for a little over a year!   My daughter was always tall for her age, she was a huge toddler, 90th percentile.   One of the tallest kids in her class, then suddenly, I noticed that she became the shortest among all her friends.   At the time of her diagnosis, she was 10 years old, and was only 25th percentile in height.   She is 13 now, and is growing and gaining height.   She is about 5' 2" now.  So while she does not get sick with gluten, we take her gluten free diet very seriously.   Our TTG has been dropping continuously over the 3 years, and it is getting VERY close to be under normal range.   Just on the border, but not quite there...yet.
    • Funny story ediblejack, foodiespoon, and several other companies make edible utensil. While they do have a gluten-free line the primary lines all use  wheat. You might run into these market, party, sampling event, or have a foodie/ecocrazy friend who has them. I considered using the gluten-free ones for my bakery and sampling a few years back and did my research.
