No big deal, but I just had my first cookie in over a year and a half. Almost all the cookies in my healthfood store contains soy so I haven't been able to eat them, but today I found Pamela's "Simplebites Extreme Chocolate Mini Cookies". I don't know if I can eat chocolate yet. I did OK with some (can't remember the brand) back at the beginning, but since then I had a "gluten free" chocolate bar that I got at a craft fair and didn't do so well. That was almost a year ago. Thought I'd try these and see what happens.

Well, they sure taste good to me. They are mini's, so I have had four of them so far. I was going to try making some of those flourless cookies using cashew butter instead of peanut butter but they don't carry cashew butter at my local shop. Maybe next time I'm in "the big city" I can find some. In the meantime, I feel a small victory having found these Pamela's cookies.

Merry Christmas to me! :D

Woohoo!!! I'm pretty excited about cookies myself these days. I finally went and picked up the Nov/Dec Living Without that has cookies on the cover. Flip back to the recipes and there is a picture that could have been taken of my grammy's ginger cookies. I started to cry. I won't be making them until the weekend but I thought I'd live the rest of my life without my grammy's cookies. Isn't amazing how wonderful cookies are for the soul? :D Merry Christmas to both of us!

You know what I'd really like? A gluten-free ice cream cookie - you know, the ones that are like ice cream cone with the frosting inside. I'm sure there is no such thing, at least not without soy. But they do have Udi's gluten-free waffles at my local store. I could probably console myself with some of those with ice cream on top. :wub:

I'm NOT going to go nuts with all of these treats, but since it's the Holidays, and everyone else is pigging out on fattening goodies, it feels good to have SOMETHING special to eat.

My favorites are the ginger snap mini's! The ones you got have soy lecithin, don't they? It's been a while since I got that flavor, they are pretty yummy. Good find...

Nope. No soy. The only "ingredient" I thought might be iffy is "gluten-free natural flavorings", but I am happy to say that I have had no reaction whatsoever. YIPPEEE!!!!!!

I love those, and the ginger snapz, too! They are tiny and crunchy, just like I prefer them. Unfortunately, cookies are a bit off limts of me at the moment... :(

    • I think he's right. It's a hard burden at times at any age but there will be particular challenges for your daughter as kids don't want to stick out or have to be continually monitoring things like their food. Check out this advert from a UK retailer. Beware it's so sugary it could probably give a diabetic person a sugar crash! Maybe you could do similar? Just get or make a selection of kid friendly foods but don't say anything about it to your daughter, just everyone go in and start filling their plates.  If she asks you if you've done anything for her you just tell her that she can eat everything on the table. At least this would show both that choice is still available to her and that because everyone is eating the same thing that she won't feel like she's being singled out?  
    • Hi Michael and welcome The celiac diagnosis process can be a little confusing. Some time ago I tried to put together some info and links that may be of help:    The key point would be to stay on gluten until you and your doctors are satisfied that celiac has been excluded. In your case that may include another test with a more complete panel as CyclingLady says above. If you go gluten free independently during this time you risk invalidating the results and adding to uncertainty. The second suggestion would be that should you succeed in eliminating celiac as a diagnosis then you have nothing to lose from trying the gluten free diet. I tested negative on blood and endoscopy, but removing gluten resolved or greatly improved a whole load of symptoms including anxiety, depression and that feeling of not being right that you outline above.  I say greatly improved because I can still suffer from anxiety or depression, as anyone can, but if I do, they're nowhere near as severe as they were when I was consuming gluten.  In the meantime, one thing you could do is to keep a food journal to see if you can track any relation between what you eat and how you feel. It's good practice for if you later try the gluten free diet and you never know what you may learn.  This is a good site full of friendly help and advice. I hope you get the help you need

    • Good advice Ennis!  I would add baking and freezing some gluten-free cupcakes to have on hand, so that she is never left out.  Be sure to read our Newbie 101 tips under the coping section of the forum.  Cross contamination is a big issue,  If the house is not gluten free, make sure everyone is in board with kitchen procedures.   Hopefully, your GI talked about the fact that this AI issue is genetic.   Get tested (and your TD1 child).  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  About 10% of TD1's develop celiac disease and vice versa.  Get tested even if you do not display any symptoms.    http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/diagnosing-celiac-disease/
    • What does weak mean?  Like you squat down and and you can not get back up?  Or are you fatigued?  When you said blood panel, was your thyroid tested?  Antibodies for thyroid should be checked if you have celiac.  So many of us have thyroid issues.
