In my 4 years since going gluten free I had only baked something (for my husband) with wheat flour one time. At that time I wore a mask and there was no problem. Last week he wanted a special dessert with wheat flour, so I figured I would make it but not wear a mask ... how could I get a reaction if I wasn't eating it...right? I was careful and the flour didn't seem to be flying around so I thought I was safe. The next day I had diarrhea for the whole morning. I was racking my brain trying to figure out where I had contacted gluten. Finally I realized that it must have been from inhaling some of the flour particles although at the time I didn't think there was a problem.

No more gluten baking for me, my husband will have to buy his desserts or make them himself or eat my gluten free goodies. :huh: I have started using my gluten free all-purpose flour blend when making my old recipes and they have all been coming out perfectly. :lol:

Well, if there are no other reasons for you to have the big D --you aren't sick and you do not normally have it and you did not eat anything with gluten in it---then, why wouldn't there be a reason to suspect the wheat flour as your source of CC?

Makes sense to me! Guess there will be no more baking with gluten for you! :)

I honestly do not know how anyone can tell the difference anyway.

It's a psychological thing, I think. No one has ever noticed anything I make as being any less superbly yummy because it is gluten-free. :)

Tasty is tasty, no matter the flour.

I made something once with wheat flour for my hubs/son shortly after I went gluten-free and I was sick for a few days. I have not been brave enough to try again, and quite honestly, everything I make is so good no one cares. ;)

I agree - gluten free baking is as good as regular flour. I have been making all my old recipes with my all-purpose flour mix and everything has been turning out perfectly. I will try the recipe next time with my flour. My hubby told me that I had tried it before and it didn't work out but I don't remember if I did or not. But for sure no more cooking with wheat flour again. :rolleyes:

Which brand or mix are you using? I made a disaster trying to do a regular soda bread recipe with Jules blend a while back. It was a mushy-on-the-inside brick. :lol:

I mix my own and it was a recipe that Jules had posted when I first went gluten-free. I have been successful with everything I have attempted yet. Here it is ...

Thanks so much. I'll have to figure out a sub for the potato starch because nightshades are not my friends right now. :huh:

I would suggest to add more of the other starches to make up for the cup of potato starch.

I had never been much of a bread or pasta eater until August when I received a bread machine for my birthday, and oh do I regret that! I baked 18 loaves of bread over the weekend, every kind of whole wheat/french bread I could find a recipe for. I did not eat all of that of course, but I did at least try some of every type I made. Between August and November I had multiple sinus infections last one resulting in a sinus headache lasting for 6 weeks, sinus surgery in November. December another sinus infection and this time he did a blood test for allergies and I came up on the low end of an allergy to wheat. Dr said "just don't overload your system and you will be fine" He lied. I fought depression (never before in my life was I ever depressed), fatigue, muscle aches and pretty much just felt like crap. Between Dec and Jan I went "sort of" gluten free, wasn't reading labels but didn't eat bread, crackers, fried chicken etc. Jan 15th I had chili and crackers, 16th I had pizza and 17th I finished off chili and crackers, 18th I woke up feeling like I had the flu and also had an enlarged lymph node under my arm but that afternoon the swelling and pain was all the way into my breast. Went to dr he put me on antibiotics and it cleared up. We decided that I probably should stay away from wheat even tho he said that none of the symptoms I had since August were related. Mammogram, ultra sound of breast was fine, stayed off ALL gluten until.... Feb 7th had a small snack bag of peanut butter crackers, 8th had a Whopper Jr, 9th had a philly cheesesteak sandwich that my boss bought me as a thank you for something I had done. 10th while at work felt my armpit start to burn and itch and by the time I got home I had a marble size lump. On a hunch I took benadryl all weekend, lump got smaller no problem i thought.

The lump was there all week but seemed to be clearing up, didn't hurt, burn, or itch. Sat my granddaughter and I baked bread and doggie treats, she did all the measuring, baking I was the supervisor. I didn't touch the wheat flour except once to show her how to measure (she's 8). I cleaned up and I was noticing off and on all day that my arm was hurting a bit and thought I would give the dr a call on Monday. Sunday I woke up in extreme pain, lump under arm had swollen to about 4" in length and I could feel it was very deep. No fever, but felt very sick I hurt from my chest bone to my back bone. Went to ER was admitted to hospital, surgery Sunday evening, spent entire week in hospital. The doctors there did not do any type of allergy testing and seem unsure of whether an allergy/intolerance to wheat would cause this problem but for me I know it does. They did put me on a gluten free/dairy free diet and told me to see an allergist. They seem to think it is a auto immune response and feel that when I overloaded my system it kicked my immune system into overdrive and it now reacts to everything. I also have to have a blood test to test my immunoglobin (sp)when and if I ever get of antibiotics (oh forgot to mention the infection turned out to be MRSA and possible came from sinus surgery) They also told me to not only go gluten free with food, but also to get it out of my home. They said that breathing in the dust from the flour is worse that eating it. My daughter came over while I was in the hospital, got rid of any food I had that had gluten and also disposed of all my vital wheat gluten, whole wheat flour, bread flour, etc and scrubbed every counter, floor and cabinet. I have be absolutely gluten-free now for a week and 2 days. I am still recovering from the infection so at this point I really can't say I feel any better but I have developed almost a phobia of gluten. The scary thing is that my allergist appointment is in April and I need to eat wheat before I go in for the testing (not sure why, but that came from his office). Anyone else have this type of issue?

    • You'll get to the point where you can eat other things, you just have to give it time. Can you do eggs? Hard boiled eggs. They make fast snacks and are highly portable. If you make nut butters, you can just eat it by the spoonful.  I don't like "normal" coconut macaroons, too wet for me, ick! I found this recipe though which drives me insane --- sooooooo good I about swallow my tongue. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/toasty-coconut-macaroons-recipe-1912139 Don't know if you like them or not but re-fried beans. I NEED my carbs!!!!! If I don't get carbs, I will get weak & shaking 30 minutes after eating. I can't eat every 30 minutes!!! So I eat a lot of re-fried beans. I make a big vat & then portion into containers & freeze. If you have or get a stick blender, it will make super fast work of mashing those beans up. Only takes 2 minutes or less. I use olive oil in mine & lots of it -- need that fat. 
    • Coconut, almond butter, and cocoa nib fat bombs...I use plant fats to do it. You can make some great snacks out of fresh almond butter, shredded or coconut flour, and cocoa nibs. Sweeten with stevia for little dough like balls of goodness. Oh you miss potato chips, two options here I like to make my own protein chips with pea protein, or I can have 2-4 protes chips (vegan pea protein  chips made by a company) but they have to be eaten in moderation. Coconut chips....yeah I get Lets' Do Organic ones I can snack on a hand full of them or throw a handful of cocoa nibs in my mouth for snacks. If you like meat, try making jerky. get a dehydrator season your own and just do it.....lucky you can eat meat. I miss making roast in a crock pot....I used to make some of the best shredded meats. My old smoker.....I could make some of the best ribs and roast EVER. The jerky can be made and taken for snacks on the road or while out, crack open a can of spinach (canned unsalted delmonte does not bother me) or pack some stewed greens and have some jerky tear it up stir it in canned keto on the go. Other lovely thing are tuna and salmon if the canned bother you I often find them too salty to enjoy I have taken some and smoked it or dipped it in liquid smoke then cooked in a baking dish then loaded in to the dehydrator. I find doing this I can have that little bit of fish when I want without worry of spoilage (sucking on it and chewing it for a long time make it really satisfying for me) ....SOO doing this next week to try the fish again. Speaking of fish...since I perfected keto bread in my bakery this month......I think I might try making a tuna sandwich with avacado mayo....not had a tuna sandwich in over 5 years.....
    • I am a newly diagnosed celiac and am traveling abroad for the first time since starting the diet. I will be going to Greece in the spring. I was wondering if anyone had any tips for eating gluten free abroad or at airports? Thanks! 
    • Yeah I've wondered a bit if I'm not getting all the other B vitamins from food alone and if they'd do me well. Magnesium content in the keto vitals isn't a lot. I try to get some more through food but I doubt it's optimal. I might have to look into that stuff. Interesting about the meats. Unfortunately I need the fat, especially if I'm gonna continue trying this keto thing for awhile, give it a chance to work. I did know about the difference in omega content, but since starting this diet I've been supplementing with fish oil to offset the omega 6's. Hope you'll be able to eat meat again soon, even if in small amounts. So much this. Every day I want to get up and do anything, and can't and it sucks. I want to climb the walls, get away from myself... Ugh, this takes too long, and I'm too impatient. Yeah, looks like I have to cook everything. I figured I'd at least be able to eat raw baby spinach. I need SOMETHING I can just grab and eat, but it gives me the same slightly itchy mouth that fruit gives me. I've been allergic to fruit forever... Don't have this problem with my steamed broccoli and cauliflower. I already cook everything else I eat. (and it's all organic, real food) So annoying to have to spend half my day cooking, not that I have anything else I can do. But what do I do when (or if) I get healthy again and am like, out somewhere? Damn I miss potato chips. I'll tweak a few things here and there and keep trying.
