OOOh! You've got to try this!!

Marshmallow/ Popcorn Treats! :P

They are like Rice Krispy treats, ...but with popcorn!

I don't have the recipe in front of me right now... but, you put butter in a Large pot, then melt Kraft Marshmallows (recipe on the bag for the rice krispy treats) in it, and when melted add salted homemade popcorn, stir, and don't burn yourself making sticky popcorn balls!

We color them for different holidays, too!

Enjoy!

Do any of you know any corn free candies? Almost all candies have "high fructose corn syrup" but I cant have corn, or dairy, or eggs, nuts, or anything else really. Are there any candies I can have?

Everything else sounds so yummy!!!

Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles are gluten-free as far as ingredients go, but there is always a chance of cross-contamination with cereals produced in the same factory with gluten cereals. I do buy the Malt-O-Meal brand Cocoa-Dino Bites and the Fruity-Dino Bites since they are also gluten-free by ingredients and the big bags are cheaper than the Pebbles boxes.

I haven't tried the marshmellow treats with them though, it seems they would be really sweet, since the cereal is already sweetened. I think I might try the popcorn ones...

God bless,

Mariann :)

I called Kraft about the cross contamination issue just last week. The lady on the phone gave me the usual Kraft response (which is fine) of they put everything clearly on the labels. I asked her if the product was on a dedicated line. She said that if it were not that too would be listed on the label. :) I feel very safe eating the pebbles!!

    • They say you should not work out if your sick or dealing with such issues. I on the other hand do the opposite I will work out even if running a fever, I feel lost if I do not, and the endorphins help me feel fullfilled and relaxed......I have a few other issues as well >.> sitting still causes me to have mini panic attacks. I actually have to be on a stationary bike while on the computer lol. I swear it originates from being stuck in bed for days in the past unable to move, I fear being stuck unable to move my body like it used to sometimes. Got to admit the scariest thing in life is when your own body does not do what you want it to and it turns on you. As for steps, etc....I personally do about 24-30k steps a day or 11-14miles, Most of it pacing lol, anyway everyone is different so I can not tell you what to do just my own exp. Make sure you eat plenty, drink plenty of water and tea, and supplement anything your body might need. I eat constantly throughout the day to keep me going and enough protein and fats that it seems like a body building diet. Be careful and do not push yourself too hard, if you start feeling dizzy, tired or odd lay down for 15-20mins for a power nap. I do this twice a day at least just out of habit.
    • Ok, two things: 1. I never had symptoms either. I'm 29 and I've always been healthy. Never had bad blood work. Never had any issues. I had two healthy pregnancies and never in a million bazillion years thought I had celiac. Last September I got a weird stomach bug and it just wouldn't get better. After about 3 weeks I started wondering what the heck was going on. So I went to the health fair and got tested for Celiac, because my mother has 3 siblings who have it. My numbers came back high. I had an endoscopy in November to confirm. My toddler has it too. My damage was pretty significant, but normal for someone with Celiac. So, while that weird stomach bug may have been the beginning of my symptoms (I still don't know if had anything to do with my Celiac), I had Celiac for a while before I found out. There's no way that I could have developed the damage I had in 3 weeks. So I think it's totally possible to be a silent Celiac. I have always wondered how I'd know if I were glutened. All I've heard is that after not eating gluten for a long time I'll know. That's always made me a little nervous.  2. You doctors gave you really crappy advice. They should have told you that your numbers were high, to remain on a normal diet, and make an appointment with a GI specialist. That way you could have had an endoscopy and a biopsy to confirm your diagnosis. Telling you to stop eating gluten was really stupid of them. Because after 9 months you're probably not going to show much damage in an endoscopy. That said, I think it's likely you have Celiac. The tests they run are very sensitive. In fact, I asked my GI what he'd recommend if my endo came back normal, and he said, you wouldn't have numbers like this if you weren't reacting to gluten, so I'd still want you to be on a gluten free diet.  To be honest, I don't feel much different either. I'm still tired like I used to me. My anxiety hasn't gone away. My stomach seems much better. I never realized it wasn't stellar until I stopped eating gluten. Now I'm not bloated, I rarely have intestinal cramping, I don't really have gas pains. That weird bug I had went away.  So I was kinda in your situation. I didn't have signs. I was shocked when I got the test back. Shocked. I never had the GI issues, the rashes, etc. I grew up with Celiac and never thought I had it. My parents don't have it. But it's a super common AI disorder. My biopsy confirmed it for me, so I never second guessed it. And I had a family history to give me more proof that I could have it.  If you don't mind the thought of eating gluten again you could always start eating it again for a few months so that you can do an endoscopy and a biopsy later. A lot of people do these gluten challenges so that they can actually be TOTALLY tested. Like I said, I think you probably have it. Those Celiac tests are pretty sensitive. My doctors were sure I had it. The rates of false positives are pretty low. And other AI disorders can raise them, but it's not likely.  Being gluten free sucks. It sucks bad at first. Eating out has gone out the window for me. The inconvenience sucks. I can't take part in pot lucks or work functions. I have to eat first or bring my own food. It sucks. But, I'm lucky that if I have an AI issue I can control it with my diet and feel ok as long as I don't eat gluten. And I've learned to adapt. I guess I didn't have a choice. And then there are the folks who know they have Celiac and don't care, and they eat gluten anyway. And that's their choice, but they're poisoning their bodies. To each their own. I know it sucks. I get it. I was shocked too. But chances are, you'd have developed symptoms eventually. You may have had this for a short time or a long time. There's really no way to know. But sometimes our bodies compensate really well. My iron levels were always good. I never in a million years suspected I had this. Never. 
    • Truer words were never spoken.......insurance companies operate like Ponzi schemes.  I know there are times when a person really needs insurance but navigating their ridiculous policies is enough to make anyone go crazy. 
    • Thanks that's good to hear it gets better getting myself familiar with the diet as well 👍🏾
    • Above is some great suggestions, read the 101 if you have not already and toss all your gluten items, clean out everything and make a safe living environment. I would as mentioned start off on a whole foods only diet, fresh vegetables, and meats cooked in water into stews in a crock pot are really easy to digest and can mixed up in various ways. Using crockpot liners will makes this easy clean up as well. I suggest new utensils, get rid of any scratched glass, teflon, or metal wares you have that could harbor gluten. Most plastic plates, bowls, etc will have to go. I suggest freezer paper for prep surfaces for clean work surface and easy clean up. Clean out your drawers, cubbards, fridge freezer, making sure to clean handles also. I might suggest drawer organizers to keep any think new you get from getting old crumbs, residue from the drawer on them. Go through your spices, and sauces toss anything not gluten-free. Your condiments in jars need to go, crumbs/residue from forks, knifes, spoons put them has contaminated them. Also remove dairy as mentioned it causes alot of issues for us and go easy on spices for a while just salt and pepper for a bit. There are many other things we can help with around here if you need brand to trust etc. Feel free to ask about anything your having issues with.
