I don't like to eat grocery store beef because of all the hormones and antibiotics. I LOVE bison though. Well, I just wanted to share my great fortune with you folks. I was talking to a customer whom I hadn't seen in a while. She said she was going to bring me some pork pie because she knows how much I love it.

I had to tell her about my celiac disease and how truly sorry I am that I ca no longer eat her pork pie. It was one of my favorite foods of all time. Anyway, I mentioned that I eat bison when I can afford it, and chicken most days because it is cheap.

She called me yesterday and said she was bringing me a present from an anonymous donor. I THINK she must have mentioned me and my celiac to someone at her church or something. Anyway, long story short, this anonymous person sent me a five pound bison roast, about eight pounds of ground bison, and five packages of bison hot dogs. All organic, all locally grown and "harvested". That is WELL over a hundred dollars worth of meat! Probably over two hundred.

I can't believe how good people are to me! There is barely enough room in my freezer for all of this, and between that and what I already had in there, I won't need to buy meat for two or three months. And because there is so much more nutrition in bison than in chicken, I know I'm going to start feeling better than I do now. (My energy level has been pretty low lately.)

Just when faith in mankind is at its lowest ebb (Connecticut), somebody does something to make me believe in humanity again. Merry Christmas!

I'm not a fan of bison. I ate it for about two years straight and got burnt out. It does, however, have less fat than regular beef and is good in sauces and such.

Good for you :) Its nice when out of no where you are showered with such kindness.

Yeah, it IS shaping up to be a great December for me. There have been some pretty good guitar related things going on too, and I ALSO got a new banjo that a local guy made. Best sounding banjo I have ever played. I'll most likely be spending Christmas alone with my cat, but I'll be eating well and playing my new banjo, so it'll be a great Christmas anyway. :)

That all sounds amazing. Someone must be watching out for you. Brilliant you know you can look after yourself and feel nourished

Have a wonderful Christmas and 2013 :)

Yep. I don't know if, like a lot of forums, we aren't supposed to bring up religion here, but I will say that God has always watched out for me, and through other people like this anonymous donor, He has always given me what I need.

Merry Christmas to you too.

Whenever we are feeling at our lowest, always, always something (or someone) comes our way and renews our faith in humanity.

I always believe in the goodness of people, even when terrible things happen. Good always triumphs evil.

I am delighted for you, Barty! Enjoy, honey--you deserve it. You are always so sweet and kind to others.

And because of your recommendation awhile ago , I eat bison now, too!

Much love and happiness for a blessed Christmas and Healthy New Year, IH xxoo

    • Do a little research?  Google and then check out the manufacturers and see what is available in your area?  Read some threads about products that people are discussing and look them up?  I think most of us know what we can get in our area but would have no clue about where companies ship to or how they handle wholesale transactions. You haven't said what type of business - a bakery? Grocery?  Restaurant?   I think that if you are really serious about a "gluten-free business" you would put a bit of work into it. 
    • That doctor is delaying unnecessarily! If he's been sick for 2 months already, another 3 months is cruel and unusual.
    • IT could be many things, I find I have a gastric dumping issue with some meals, I know some food intolerance I have will trigger it. I know If I do not start my day with a big glass of hot liquid and magnesium and have it before a meal, that meal will sit it my stomach till it makes me sick and vomit it up 4-6 hours later. I know for me meats do not digest. they just sit in my stomach til I vomit them back up. Animal fats and certain oils do not digest same thing. just float in my stomach til I puke them up when they start going rancid in my stomach 4-6 hours later. I find digestive enzymes are a MUST. I take 2-4 times the suggested dosing, and even extra bromine with heavy protein meals.

      There is another issue where some people have weak stomach acid there for the stomach does not digest food nor dump it. If you have this issue then betaine hcl will help this. For me it was not my acid but a enzyme issue.
    • I want to establish a gluten free business and i want to know the accredited suppliers for gluten free products in order not to get cheated by fake products from suppliers  is there a list available ? And can they export to other countries ?!  Thanks 
    • I am sorry that your daughter (and you) are experiencing this.  After diagnosis, celiacs need adequate follow-up care.  When was the last time her antibodies were checked?  Have they come down?  Are they still very elevated?  This link verifies what I said: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ By testing you can help rule out active celiac disease.  It can take most celiacs a year or years to recover from celiac disease and all the collateral damage that can come with it.   Then you might consider a dietician who is knowledgeable about celiac disease.  Often going gluten free is not enough.  People tend to just find substitutes for their already unhealthy food choices.  She should focus on fresh fruits, veggies, meat, nuts, dairy, legumes, rice, etc.  and avoid processed foods until she has really mastered the diet.  The learning curve is so steep!  Read our Newbie 101 thread found at the top of our Coping section.  It contains helpful tips.   Autoimmune thyroid is very common with celiac disease.  Be sure to have her thyroid checked and antibodies tested for the thyroid as well even if other thyroid lab markers are okay.   Besides the lack of periods, have her other symptoms improved?   I wish you both well!  As a Mom myself, I get the worry!  We want our kids to be safe and healthy!    I am glad you are championing her health!   Oh, did the rest of the family get tested even if symptom free?
