6 posts in this topic

I'm new to this site and the gluten free way of life!

I'm trying to learn all of the ins and outs of living with this and adjusting :)...I had no idea the things I was contaminating my body with unknowingly!

I haven't had time to really look around, but I was wondering anyones thoughts on cooking spray?

I stopped buying all walmart brands because I seem to get really sick no matter what. (except their olive oil and apple sauce seems to be okay)

I bought smart balance cooking spray, but realized there is grain alcohol in it. I can't find anything on it online, and smart balance says all their products of gluten free.

any thoughts??

I really want to bake some gluten free pumpkin muffins, but I'm lost..

Grain alcohol, being distilled, is generally considered safe for celiacs.

PAM cooking spray, with the exception of the "baking" version, is gluten-free.

I have not found any sprays that are not gluten-free. Except - Baker's Joy and any other baking spray with flour added. It should be very obvious in the ingredients. Most of them seem to have soy, so it soy is an issue:

You could do one of these with whatever oil you like:

Sometimes i just wad up a paper towel and dip it in oil and wipe. Or I take a chunk of butter or margarine and rub it on the pan.

After one very awful, crunchy mess, I found that doesn't work with a waffle iron :lol:

I have read the labels on a few, although I do not remember the brands that say right on them that they may contain traces of wheat. I now stick exclusively to PAM. I've thought about buying one of those refill yourself sprayers but I always thought they'd be so much more expensive. I guess I can just get once since they're so cheap.

    • I didn't read that far.  Yikes... A hefty dose of perspective in that one.  For anyone reading this is the post:
    • Hi! I'm new to the Celiac world. I have been gluten free for around seven months, but still seem to get glutened on a regular basis. I have been sick since January '16 and think that is when it triggered, but I didn't realize until October what it was. By that time I was pregnant with my little boy who is due in June. I also have an almost 4 year old daughter. I am really torn and wondering if I need to really be tested? I have very strong suspicions that I am a true celiac because my aunt has been diagnosed. Part of me says it doesn't matter, just live gluten free and assume you are, but the other part says I need to get tested so I know if my kids are at risk. So far my daughter is fine. She was grain free until after her first birthday, I plan on doing the same with my son. But I also don't want them to suffer the way I have. What would you do?  The reason I don't want to get tested is I don't want to start eating it again and feel terrible while I have little kids, last year was so hard and I just want to get strong again. I also plan to bf for a few years and don't necessarily think it's a good idea to eat gluten while bf right?  Thank you! 
    • Welcome too! Sorry to hear you're suffering now. If you can nail the diet you should improve. You should also think about vitamin supplements. There's a good chance that you're suffering from one or more deficiencies as a result of the affects of celiac on your intestine's capacity to draw nutrients from your food. A good multi vitamin is a must, just make sure its gluten free and see if your doctor can refer you to a dietician as Lochella's has.
    • Oh I had heard his name and read some stuff about him but hadn't come across this video!  Thanks!!
    • Hi Stacie, Sorry you're not feeling good. I found I was a bit up and down in my first months gluten free. I'd had blood sugar issues before, they've largely improved since my diet change but it hasn't made me immune to them. The single best thing I did was change my breakfasts, increasing protein and fat and reducing carbs. That kept my blood sugar in check and stopped the cycle of food cravings and sugar crashes. Omelette's for the win! Maybe if you share a typical day's food for you some of the forum members can suggest some changes you could make?
