Sounds like me and corn chips. I went through at least half a bag of Xochitl Mexican style tortilla chips on my last road trip home.

If I hadn't learned that Frito's are on the safe-list (gluten-free and soy free) I would have lost more than 20 pounds over the summer.

That sounds HEAVENLY. I am a choco-holic, but I'm lactose intolerant and just got diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia. Anyone know what kind of chocolate (boar :lol: ) that I could get my hands on? I found a bar in the organic section of Kroger - gluten-free, LF, low sugar. But it tastes like...chocolate chalk.

Well, before I became allergic to chocolate...! :( I was eating Khalari (sp?), from Whole Foods. My choc. had to be dairy-free and soy-free. I got the 85% dark. Can't vouch for the flavor, I thought it was good but I was lucky/pretty greatful to have any choc. at all. Folks on the diabetes board make their own chocolates with the dark choc or unsweetened, plus safe sweetener and coconut oil.

The Ghirardelli dark chocolate squares are awfully good! I prefer the 72%. The 86% is a little bitter for me. I have a package and here are ingredients.

72% - Unsweetened chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, vanilla.

86% - Unsweetened chocolate, cocoa butter, sugar, milk fat, soy lecithin, vanilla, natural flavor.

Before I stopped eating them because of the sugar I ate Enjoy Life's "Boom Choco Boom" bars. They make a milk chocolate and dark chocolate, both free of the major allergens (i.e. gluten, soy, dairy...). Even if you were a milk chocolate fan, I'd suggest the dark; the milk didn't have much flavor.

I saw that someone mentioned Ghiradelli. I try to avoid chocolate altogether but when I really need some I eat that. The darker it is, the fewer ingredients you have to worry about. Be aware that different brands use different formulas: I found one that wasn't safe for me unless I went 85% or above. I think Ghiradelli's the safest option short of chewing raw cocoa beans.

Mmmmmm.....raw cocoa beans.... :lol:

Thanks for these ideas! I can do without a lot of stuff, but I must have chocolate!

There's a vending machine on my floor in the dorm and the only thing I can safely eat is the Fritos (and I'm even trying to avoid those now). When its stock dwindles, some girls start leaving notes on the glass for the suppliers with requests for their favorites usually resulting in at least two full dispensers of that item. I have been incredibly tempted to leave notes for bizarre gluten-free food.

One of these days it's going to happen... Cookies & Cream? Carmello? No, give us 80+% Ghiradelli or Boom Choco Boom or Xochitl tortilla chips. Maybe individually packaged slices of Udi's? Rice noodles? I despise vending machines now. Hmm... Apparently I'm hungry.

    • Hey guys,   I appreciate the input, you are all very sweet and kind.   I do not eat out at all. Only eat food I cook. No alcohol. Only certified gluten-free oats, grains, rice, etc. I have 3 roommates in a little house. I have my own gluten-free section to cook and prepare food but it only does so much. They eat tons of bread and drink lots of beer so it's everywhere. I find myself washing my hands every 30 seconds just to lower my risk. I bite my nails, which I know doesn't help.    And I will look into those magnesium and calming products, those sound nice.   i think yea, the biggest thing I'm looking for here is a way to minimize these symptoms that throw me off. I'm feeling a bit better today, but still extremely sluggish, with a crippling stomach ache.  I guess I'll aim for 7 hours of sleep. That makes sense, I think I need to prioritize that.
    • What was your gluten free diet like? I wonder if, when you were gluten-free, you went more whole food, less processed food? Or did you continue to eat processed food that was just gluten free? One reason I ask is that I have cut way back on grains and processed foods like gluten-free bread, but occasionally allow myself a treat which is a gluten-free biscuit southern-style from the gluten-free bakery nearby. There is no better sleeping pill in the world! I am knocked out. I’m not saying you’re not Celiac, I’m just curious what your diet was replaced with. You’re definitely reacting to something, and in a way you’re lucky to know what that is! Plumbago
    • Equal parts Hershey Coco Powder and a sweetener with a pinch of salt. Super easy to make your own.  I like adding a bit to my coffee with almond milk, and lakanto sugar free maple, or a bit of monk fruit or stevia. 
      PS you might want to drop dairy milk. The enzymes to break it down come from the tips of the villi in your intestines....these are damaged first. You can probably reintroduce in a few months but we normally suggest dropping it, and going to a whole foods only diet when first going gluten free. Welcome to the community by the way here are some useful links.

    • I was just diagnosed yesterday via lab testing and was quite shocked.  I have been looking for gluten free replacements for things as I am a definite bread-lover.  I have been using the Non-Sugar-Added Nesquik every day since long before it the name change from Nestle's Quik and just checked the label this morning.  I does say "May contain wheat"....not that there may cross contamination, but since i am so new to this I don't know if those are essentially the same thing.   I guess I will need to be a little more strict in the beginning and then try adding things back in a few months that may not be definite offenders.   If it doesn;t work, I will have to find a substitute.  I did find Carnation Breakfast Essentials Light Start is Gluten Free, but much more expensive for using every day.  But apparently almost everything gluten-free is if it is not naturally that way.....
    • If I get cc -insomnia will manifest as one of the symptoms and knock me off sleep schedule. I also get fatigue. I have multiple symptoms. If diet and personal care under control , environmental or new exposure event? Are solely In school/classes or are you on rotation or observation in field? Are you handling or dispensing  any meds for patients that have gluten in it?. Even if gloved are you sensitive to airborne "dust " pharmaceutical med or Otc meds with gluten filler even when pouring can possibly effect you in my opinion. Maybe gloves/mask would help. Just a thought. Good luck.
