  1. Thanks for all the suggestions. I will continue to experiment with the Chebe and also try to bread recipes given here. I do get a bit overwhelmed with new tasks that are different for me, especially cooking and baking, but I need to do this for my health. I really appreciate everyone's input to my question. Thanks again.
  2. Thanks for the info I will look into it.
  3. I am new to the gluten free diet and am actually in the process of getting my family ready to go gluten free this week. I bought a bread mix called Chebe all purpose bread mix and was wondering if it is supposed to be chewy in the middle? Did I put too much liquid in? Did I knead it too long? Did I not cook it long enough? Are all gluten free breads chewy? Please help me find good alternatives to bread. I am not a big meal planner or chef. I don't bake on a regular basis but if I can find a recipe that is easy to make then I am all for it. Thanks in advance for the info. Kat
  4. Dear NoGluGirl, Thank you for the wonderful response. I am hoping that this new way of eating will change the way I feel. In the past I have had what I call "episodes" where I would get hives and then get the worse type of stabbing pains in my gut and have to go run to the bathroom. While in the bathroom I would get so hot that I would have to remove my shirt. It was so bad that in between the pains that signalled another need to go I would lay lifeless on the bathroom floor. It didn't matter where I was either. I could be in a public bathroom and still have to lay down ( I am somewhat of a germ-a-phobe so for me to do that really says something about the state of my body at the time). These episodes took so much out of me I would be exhausted afterwards even though they only lasted about 20 minutes. This happened through high school and got really bad in College. I thought it was my nerves and no one could answer me. I had upper GI done and the technician asked if I had had an ulcer because it looked like I had scar tissue on my stomach (that was in High school) then Later on I had a lower GI and they diagnosed me as having IBS. I have ended up in the hospital twice for these "episodes" that didn't subside.I don't have insurance and don't like modern medicine so I have been doing everything holistically. I am studying to be a hypnotherapist to help others with chronic pain and weight issues, smoking issues and hopefully later once I start my practice and am bringing in some money I will continue my education to become a Doctor of Natural Medicine. I am so glad I found this site. It will help me when I am at a loss for recipes or support. My son is very difficult to cook for and to come up with meal ideas. He is very picky and he will not eat very much meat. He loves veggies and fruit but I have a hard time finding proteins for him to eat other than tofu and Quorn protein. If anyone has any suggestions that are easy for a 2 year old I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance. Kat
  5. Hello everyone, I am new to gluten free diet and am actually preparing myself to be strict with the diet starting Monday. I have not been diagnosed with Celiac but have been diagnosed with IBS in the past and have always had issues with my bowels and with other chronic issues that I think may be linked to a sensitivity to gluten. I am going to try the diet to see if it helps with my depression, headaches, joint aches skin eruptions on my legs and stomach and other issues because I am at my wits end. I have removed dairy, chocolate (I am a choco-holic), soda, processed foods and white starches out of my diet and still have not been able to lose weight. I have noticed the times that I ate a lot of protein and veggies and stayed off the breads that I felt better and have decided to test my theory. I think I am right. If not it is still a great idea to go gluten free and I will most likely keep with the change. My husband is on board and my son is at an age where if I start him now he won't refuse later. He is 26 months old and from birth refused to eat any dairy or meat so that is one reason I haven't had dairy and we eat a lot of soy and soy products. I have tried a bread product called Chebe and was wondering if anyone has experience with this mix? Can anyone tell me if Chebe bread is supposed to be chewy on the inside after baking? I followed the directions but am wondering if I didn't bake it long enough or if I added too much liquid. Also can anyone recommend bread alternatives that are inexpensive and easy to obtain? I am in the US and located in VA but am not against ordering products on line if they are a bargain. Well it is late and I am rambling. I am so excited to have found such a wonderful site. And thank you for taking the time to post the lists that are on here so far. I appreciate it. They are very helpful. Kat
