  1. Hi everyone, I'm doing a research project on lip products in hopes of finding out which ones are gluten-free or not. I want to test the most popular lip products used by celiacs (both men and women). Do you mind sharing which products you use? Also could you share which ones you used to use (if you found out that they had gluten in them don't use them anymore)? You just have to post the brand of the product and the type. For example, Maybelline (brand) shiny-licious lipgloss (type). Thanks! Eesha
  2. I know this post is old, but for anyone looking for camp advice: I did a sleepaway camp for three weeks at Vassar College in NY. Since it was a college campus (not woods camping) I didn't really have a problem with the diet. I spoke to the coordinators ahead of time and they told me to bring gluten-free food. I brought bread, cookies, crackers and pretzels. They let me store my bread in the dining hall fridge, so all I had to do was ask one of the attendants to get it for me whenever I wanted some. The snacks and such I just kept in my dorm room. Breakfast wasn't that much of a problem, but it did get boring eating the same thing everyday. I stuck to scrambled eggs, potatoes and fruit. For lunch I usually ate some gluten-free bread and they had a cold cut bar so I made sandwiches. For dinner, I ate salad and maybe some chicken (if it wasn't breaded or anything). The kitchen staff was really nice and answered all of my questions about the food and looked up ingredients for me. I don't think I got too sick because of gluten contamination (maybe a little stomach ache once or twice). But I did get food poisoning!! I ate hot dogs at the 4th of July bbq and I guess they had been sitting out for too long, or undercooked? I'm not sure, but it wasn't because of gluten. Other than that, camp was really really fun. No one really bothered me about the diet. The first few days the kids at my dining table asked why I was eating different looking bread and such. But after I explained everything, it wasn't a big deal at all. Also, my birthday came during camp and my counselors and friends got gluten-free ice cream to celebrate (instead of cake). It was really sweet. Email me if you have any questions: moonstruck_eyes@yahoo.com
  3. hey! I also like art, but I'm more of a creative writing person. I like to paint/draw/such. But I can't do photography (but I wish I could). I love to laugh. and yes I burst out into a song at least 289425 times a day. I love dancing. I fence sabre and have a black belt in karate. favorite t.v. shows anyone? america's next top model & gossip girl for me. and friends is always fun
  4. Hey! I totally know how you feel about adjusting to the diet. (I've been gluten-free for five years now). I went through an experiment proces with food brands until I found ones that suited my taste buds. I recommend glutino, foods by george, the grainless baker, Pamela's and the gluten free pantry. Do you live near a Whole Foods? They make awesome gluten-free sandwich bread (I take it to school everyday). They also have good scones, muffins and biscuits. Also the problem with a lot of gluten-free bread is that its crumbly and falls apart. Try toasting it. I remember my sandwiches would always be cracked and crumbled by lunch time. But toasting fixes this! But the bread still might be dry... There's a national support group for teens with celiac disease. The link is on my personal profile. Good Luck! The diet will get easier!
  5. hi! i'm indian & celiac, but i live in new york. my mom and i were diagnosed about five years ago and since then we've been trying to develop gluten free alternatives to indian food (roti, paratha, chapati, etc.). we've come up with some pretty good recipes and our puri recipe is awesome. we eat bhakri as well and we've come up with a pretty good recipe for them. (i don't know what bhakri's are in hindi because i speak gujurati, but hopefully you know what i'm talking about!). the roti's are alright, my mom loves them but i think they still need some tweaking... we tend to use a lot of juwar and tapioca flours. i know that the roti's have juwar in them and i'm not too fond of the taste so that's why i don't like them. if you want the recipe's, email me at moonstruck_eyes@yahoo.com and i'll send them to you. hope this helps!
  6. That's ridiculous. I'm indian & have celiac disease. Maybe its not that common in asians, but it definitely can happen.
  7. By reading most of the posts I guess Celiac must have originated in Ireland, but I'm 100% indian (from india, not native american) & have celiac. Unless i had an irish ancestor, which i doubt, there must have been a mutation or something. My mom has it & so does my grandma (mom's side of course). My great-grandpa most likely had it too & was supposed to be very "un"-indian looking. he had light eyes & pale skin & was most likely celiac (anemic & other symptoms). I don't know anything about his parents, but perhaps he had some irish in him, however i don't know if a gene would survive that long, & this story sounds like a stretch. Also, on my mother's side, everyone has very light skin. perhaps i have some european in me? i highly doubt it.
