I really like homemade popcorn, Mission corn chips and Pace salsa. Betty Crocker cookies, brownies and cake are great and so are the betty crocker frostings. Skittles, Lays Stax chips. I could go on and on...

I really like homemade popcorn.

Yes! And if you oil it properly it is one of the healthiest snacks you can eat, gluten free or otherwise. I like to use a good quality olive oil. Be careful because the warm popcorn brings up and enhances the flavor of the oil: good oil tastes delicious and bad oil tastes awful. So if you try it and it tastes icky, get a better oil. (Hint: if it is out on the store's shelves, it is rancid. Light degrades olive oil rapidly.) Odd as it may sound, the Costco extra virgin olive oil in the square glass bottles - if pulled from the center of the case - is very good oil, if maybe a little bland for Italian tastes. They seem to pick good quality oil and they go through it so fast that it doesn't have time to oxidize (go rancid). Another good source of awesome American grown olive oil is Olivehut.com. Hopefully they are still in business. They can ship you a gallon jug of really good olive oil and if you call you can make sure it is this year's harvest - really fresh. Don't worry about the jug - they pump it from a dark barrel just before shipping it. (I've watched them do it.)

You can also flavor the popcorn with spices which do not add fat or calories. One really good enhancement is epazote. Those of us with Celiac often damaged our intestines before we were diagnosed and the collateral damage can often take the form of IBS or CIBO. Epazote is an herb which helps to reduce the gas that can cause us so much pain.

This is the Frito Lay list for the US. It may be different in another country.

There is a gluten-free candy list from Halloween around here somewhere. I'll move stuff around and see where we put it. Lol

Found it! http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/glutenfreefoodshopping/a/GFcandies.htm

This list isn't the only candy that is gluten-free, but its a good starting point.

I am a huge fan of "well&good muffin mix", if you add raisins to the mix it is perfect!

I love that toblerone flavors are all gluten-free and snickers is also a favourite.

I also eat macarons, as far as I know they are naturally gluten-free.

Chestnut, especially candied chestnut is also gluten-free and soooo good :)

I am a huge fan of snacks as you can tell ;)

I love salty, crunchy snacks. Two of my favorites are Glutino Bagel chips and Glutino pretzels. Potato chips (Lays) and Fritos are right up there.

What are some gluten free snacks/foods you like?

Udi's Snickerdoodle cookies are a great sweet snack! They make my tastebuds sing (and trust me, that's the only singing anyone wants me to do!!)

Larabars, Trio bars, Kind bars (none of which I can have atm... but soon again!) fruit leather, especially Stretch Island which is super cheap at Costco. I like to make krispy treats with Pebbles and marshmallows, mixing up flavors of marshmallows and Pebbles for fun. (I usually make really small batches so they don't get hard.) I make a lot of pudding too, tapioca and brown rice, although I gather that Kozy Shack is gluten free.

Could you clarify on Stretch Island, what is it? Can you get it from their website?

My local Costco is not really loaded with items and is a size of a chicken coop, so availability on the web will be a blessing for me.

Trader Joe's salted tortilla chips (round shape, 32oz package) made with corn and Good should taste good brand multigrain tortilla chips, 24 oz package, made with flax, sunflower and sesame needs, Quinoa, Soy, Brown rice are my favorite to go with home made guacamole or Hummus.

The stretch island box sort of looks like the little thing up at the top corner in this link, only it is long and flat at my Costco. http://stretchislandfruit.com/ProductsFruitStrips.aspx The color is the same though and it is always up with the snack foods, things like dried fruit, fruit gummies, things of that sort. I just blew through a box in a month, I don't usually do that. :ph34r: It looks like you can order directly from the company too or find a retailer in your area.

    • Hello, Often drugs that end in –artan are ARBs, and they work by blocking the angiotensin receptors. I’m not sure what the exact difference is between the two medications you mention, though. Have you called the manufacturer of losartan to see if any of the fillers contain gluten? It might be a good idea to know what those fillers are. In my drug book “dyspepsia” and “gastritis” are mentioned as side effects, but they did not drill down to the specificity of villous blunting. I did some googling, and in addition to what Knitty found, I came across this: Small Bowel Histopathologic Findings Suggestive of Celiac Disease in an Asymptomatic Patient Receiving Olmesartan “Although Rubio-Tapia et al are careful to avoid claiming a proven causal relationship between olmesartan therapy and the observed spruelike enteropathy, the data are highly suggestive of more than just a coincidental association. “They further suggest that a potential mechanism for the enteropathy could relate to inhibitory effects of angiotensin II receptor antagonists on transforming growth factor β action because transforming growth factor β is important in gut immune homeostasis. “Although anecdotal, these observations lead to the hypothesis that olmesartan, and perhaps other angiotensin II receptor antagonists, could be a cause of intraepithelial lymphocytosis in architecturally preserved proximal small intestinal mucosa.” (One of the patients in question was offered the opportunity to do a gluten-free diet, but he/she declined.) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3547582/ So, it looks like you are definitely on to something, and if this turns out to be a “thing,” would probably warrant dissemination on a wider scale. You didn't mention what your BP is with the medication or was without it, but please let your health care provider know if you do decide to discontinue your blood pressure medication. It's often recommended not to DQ suddenly, which can cause the BP to spike in some cases. Plumbago   ETA: Just because a drug can cause a particular side effect does not mean it does in your case. I just thought I'd add that, but nevertheless totally and completely understand the cause of concern in any case.  
    • Lol funny thing me and my dietician were talking about things that could also cause villi blunting years ago. He brought up a interesting one, he had a case where someone was taking massive amounts of Metamucil several times a day, He said it was like 2-4 tsp 3 times a day and making into hot gel drinks for weight loss to feel full. Anyway what this had done "scrubbed" his intestines so much with the abrasive fiber it had actually damaged the walls and blunted the villi.  He compared it roughly scrubbing with a loofah several times a day and it had like a fine sandpaper slowly eroded the insides of his intestines faster then it could heal.  He says because of that he would never suggest anyone to take the full dose of psyllium husk for longer then a week straight before rotating off of it.
        Not medical advice posterboy and this is a dangerous things to play with I know, but with your BP perhaps try to help regulate it with cinnamon oil, and watching and playing with your salt intakes of potassium and sodium. These tend to effect my blood flow and how I feel often. I am unsure if BP related, mine always checks great when I do check it. But Cinnamon is one thing I can not live without, I take several tbsp a day of it or a few drops of the EO. I have been doing this for over a decade, before that and when I do not, I start feeling cold, not wanting to move, and just want to curl up in blankets...no clue why if it is health, blood, neurological, or termogenic.
    • Is it the rectum or do you think it's more in your tailbone? As I get intermittent tailbone pain that is excruciating a couple times a month.
    • She may be one of those people who got diagnosed only via blood. Some tests can come back false positive. Or maybe only via biopsy and it turns out she had H. Pylori. Who knows. Absolutely could happen though.   One of the things that surprised me too was when my doc said it can weeks to months for symptoms to develop on a gluten challenge. I always had this image of getting so imminently sick that there was no question about the connection with gluten.   
    • Yea. I hope she isn't like one of my blood and biopsy diagnosed relatives who then had a gene test that showed she didn't have one of those 2 most common genes.  She was then told it was a misdiagnosis and went back to eating gluten. She is young so she could also be in what they call the 'Honeymoon' period that used to cause doctors to think celiac could be outgrown.  In young adults it can seem celiac has resolved because the person can consume gluten for a time before the antibodies start causing symptoms again. Pure conjecture on my part.
