If You Could Eat Whatever You Wanted And

I'm watching the Food Network the other night and they were doing a show all about Donuts. Boy, talk about hitting below the belt! it was real hard to sit there and watch all those Krispy Kreme Donuts and think I may never enjoy them again :(

So it got me to thinking (Can you smell the smoke?).......What if you were granted a wish and could eat whatever you wanted for one day with no side effects? What would your top three choices be?

Here's mine:

(1) Little Debbie Nutty Bars (Sniffle, Sniffle)

(2) Giradanno's Deep Deep Pizza from Chicago (And Don't Forget The Beer!)

(3) Double Stuff Oreo's & A Glass of Ice-Cold Whole Milk to dunk them into.

Let's hope this miracle gluten-free pill that is rumored to be in the works become a reality so we can go back to enjoying some old favorites.

Thanks For Playing!

P.S. GO TRIBE!!!!!!!!

Awww ((hugs)), I know just how you feel. I think sugar cookie dough is the best cookie dough on the planet! I will probably have to make sugar cookies at Christmas cuz my kids love them. It will be torture! If I'm gonna have a weak moment and cheat, the sugar cookie dough will do me in! The fish fry I can live without, lol, never did like fish!

I wonder if my mom can make some kind of decent gluten-free sugar cookie dough. She made a really good gluten-free poppyseed cake for me (tasted just like the real thing), maybe she can do it.

I am kinda the strange one here. I have NEVER likes pasta, beer nor bread so going gluten free for me is not so bad (other than the weird ingred. you have to read at the grocery store) I guess my body was telling me something all along.

I do crave a McD's Double Cheeseburger and Fried Chicken (which I have not tried with gluten-free Flour yet).

Necco's carry me through the "pitty parties".

Well, I've been gluten-free since I was two years old so I don't even know what gluten and "regular" food tastes like. I guess that's good because I don't get cravings for gluten food.

But, I would try:

1) A big, fat doughy bagel like the ones that my family eats every weekend that smell SOOOO GOOD

2) Mr. Noodles Soup

3) A real hamburger

Just because I'm curious about what these things taste like.

I believe Smarties are gluten free...they are a Nestle product aren't they? That's one of those brands that won't hide anything on labels and I think they are safe...I need to check the label again to make sure.

Smarties in Canada are not gluten-free. It states wheat flour clearly right on the box. Smarteis are a totally different candy here, candy coated chocolates similar to M&M's only better, lol.

That makes sense then....I was wondering what you were talking about because Smarties here are gluten free to my knowledge. Just comes to show how different countries are so different.

1) veggie pizza ('cause I can't have the cheese either)

2) sourdough bread

3) oatmeal

But I wouldn't rely on a pill anyway, so those are all in the "permenantly delete" pile. :-(

    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
    • Last check(last fall sometime) my b12 and folate were fine. He did check my iron and it was fine. My potassium is technically normal, but lower than my cardio wants(I'm on q med that depletes it). Last time I had a full and extensive panel run was years and years ago. I recall my copper being high(but no one ever retested it), vit d and a couple others were low. I have tested positive for labs used to evaluate malnutrition, but it's been q couple of years since they've done those. Just going to put it on the back burner for now I guess. Can't afford to lose much more weight, but they tend to get more serious the lower my BMI goes(not on purpose, I'll have periods where I can gain a bit because I'm not vomiting a lot. Past two days I've been throwing up again after I eat.) Maybe my next colonoscopy will finally show something useful.  It's just 3 years this time and I've been arguing about my gut for 18 years now so what's a little More? 
    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
