  1. Wow, thank you for all the replies. I am very health conscious, so I want to be sure I'm not harming myself in any way. I have noticed though, that since going gluten free that my face has been breaking out pretty badly. Anyone else have this problem? I'm sure it's just the change in diet and hopefully once my body gets used to it, it will go away.
  2. Hi guys, I'm new to this whole gluten free thing, but I happened to throw something together for my step son recently that he absolutely loved. I had some boneless skinless chicken breasts in my freezer, and had nothing else to put on them but two cans of Contadina pizza sauce. I read the ingredients, it was gluten free, so I dumped it on there and let it cook for about 5-6 hours. It was awesome, and he ate two pieces that night, had it for lunch and dinner the next day.....and I ended up having to make more the day after that because he was craving it. My husband and my other two kids loved it too, and none of our kids will usually eat chicken unless it's in nugget form. It really is very good, very tender, good flavor. Just thought I would share with you all!
  3. Well, one of the reasons I ask is because I have read so many conflicting things about going gluten free when you don't have celiac. I've read that it can be harmful to your body, but then I've read that about 99% of people should eat gluten free. I think I am going to continue with the diet and see if there are any other improvements. Anyway, thanks for the reply.
  4. When my step son was diagnosed with Celiac, my husband and I decided that we were going to try the gluten free diet to see what effect it had on us, so we tried last week. My husband was unable to stick with it for one day, but I ate gluten free for about 4 days. Over the weekend we went out to eat and I ate a very small amount of gluten on Sat. night, and then a little larger amount on Sunday afternoon (Superbowl....). I had horrible stomach cramps all night Sunday night and a little diarrhea late Sun. night and Mon. morning. I've since gone back to eating gluten free. During the four days I was gluten free, after the first day or two, my stomach felt much better and I did have more energy. I have no idea if that had anything to do with going gluten free, but it seemed to. Could this mean that I have a gluten intolerance, or is this something that would happen to anyone? I don't think that I have Celiac disease, is gluten bad for pretty much anybody?
  5. I saw something on this forum about tinkyada pasta? I am wondering what that is and where I can find it, because we haven't found pasta that my step son will eat. We tried corn pasta that we can buy in bulk at our local health food store and it was disgusting. He loves mac and cheese and is the one thing he has had a hard time being without, but we just can't find anything good, and rice pasta is nasty. Can anyone help me out?
  6. Hello, My 4 year old step son was just diagnosed last week with Celiac. Since going gluten free he has been pretty sick. He had diarrhea for several days, and was throwing up, and had fevers. He's very lethargic and wanting to sleep a lot and he isn't eating much. The doc said it's normal for him to have some problems..........I'd like to know just how normal this is. His symptoms before going gluten free were simply being tired, irritable and he had fallen way off on his growth. He hasn't had diarrhea or a lot of stomach problems in the past, but he really is now. Should we be worried? How normal is this exactly?
  7. Hi, I am new to this site. My step son (4 1/2) was just diagnosed this week with celiac, and I have so many questions. I've posted in other topics some of my other questions, but this seems like a good place for this one..... Our plan is for all of us to eat gluten free. I've read here and there that gluten really isn't good for anyone and I've also read that it's harmful to not eat it if you do not have an intolerance. Does anyone know which is true? If the rest of the family follows the gluten free diet, will it be harmful to us? My husband is hoping to lose weight....is weight loss typical when starting a gluten free diet? I know that gluten free doesn't mean fat free! I'm just wondering if there would be any health benefits for the rest of the family to follow this diet as well, or if it will harm us. The other children in our family are my children, so they are his step brother and sister and not at risk for having celiac. What do you all think?
  8. Wow, thank you guys for being so helpful! The resources on Nini's website are awesome, I couldn't ask for a better starting point. My step son spends so much time with other members of his family, and they will probably all need to have as much information as possible. You've all been so helpful, thank you so much.
  9. We just found out earlier this week that my step son has Celiac Disease. We are FULL of questions and I'm hoping that some of you more experienced out there will be able to help us. We are still learning, but is there anywhere online we can go to find a list of brand name products that are gluten free. I don't necessarily mean the products you can find in the gluten free section of the health food store, I mean normal every day products....some of the less obvious ones. We need all the help we can get. My step son is 4 1/2 and he pretty much can't eat anything that he loves anymore. It is going to be a hard transition, as I'm sure you've all experienced. Any advice?
