  1. Thank you for the opportunity to blog about celiac! I have been on a stringent diet for intolerance to all grains, milk & dairy, egg whites, yeast, casein, whey, maltodextrin, modified food starch and MSG since 2000. Dealing with the...

    Depressed About Eating A Restricted Diet

    I joined this forum for the first time in 2000 or 2001. Have spent the past 12 years going through the same things as all of you in the posts above, I always think it will get easier, and, certainly, at times it does seem easier, but it...

    Newly Diagnosed Baker

    Thirteen years into being gluten and milk & dairy free, I also had to stop all foods except fruits and vegetables because of asthma, gout & rheumatoid arthritis. This morning I took my grandson to a fairly new bakery in Escondido...

    Living Normally While Battling Celiac Is Like:

    I can understand how desperate you might have felt during your times of transitioning to a gluten free diet. I've been gluten free since 2000 and also had to eliminate all milk & dairy products, meats, etc., so am now vegan. It used...

    What Do You Eat?

    I was telling my grandson yesterday that I had had the Playmate Ice Chest I carry with me for 20 years, and it really makes life easier. I can only eat fruits and vegetables because of serious food allergies, so it is a challenge. I take...
  6. No, I also get the regular, and I thought maybe it was the Jumbo that had the wheat. I live in Escondido, CA, and get them at Trader Joe's. I live 30 miles north of Escondido. Hope you all can find the ones with soy--they are great!
  7. My Lightlife Smart Dogs show the following ingredients: water, soy protein isolate, soybean oil, evaporated cane syrup, pea protein isolate, tapioca starch, salt, potassium chloride, Baker's Yeast Estract, carageenan, dried garlic, natural...

  9. I'm from San Diego County, California, and I, too, shop each day, but today broccoli was $1.49 a pound, and lettuce was $1.69 each. Since I can only eat fruits and vegetables, I have an orange juice with fresh pineapple smoothie each day...
  10. Having struggled with these issues since the late 1970s, let me tell you, I have had to become numb to being called "weird," "eccentric," and who knows what else? But by rigidly sticking to my diet, I am no longer frequently in the hospital...
  11. I have Celiac Disease, Asthma, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and gout, which IS Rheumatoid Arthritis. I am female, 68, but mostly men suffer from gout, so I was surprised when that diagnosis came in. I've had Asthma since the age of 8 and probably...
  12. I've been gluten-free, milk & dairy free, egg white and yeast free, maltodextrin, msg, casein & whey free since 2000, though the casein dilemma threw me for a loop until I learned that is what was causing some of my problems! There...
  13. Our family is going through this right now. There are 3 health food stores in our town, and we are able to find everything we need. I've been gluten-free, milk & dairy free, and no egg whites, yeast, maltodextrin or msg since 2000...
  14. I am intolerant of all grains, all milk & dairy products (including casein and whey), egg whites, yeast, maltodextrin & modified food starch. So, I am able to eat meat, fruits & vegetables.

    Glutened Recovery Time

    I remember standing in the grocery aisle reading the Orville Redenbacher packages and determining that I couldn't have them, though now I don't remember what was in it. Instead, I buy bulk popcorn at the Health Food Store. It's much cheaper...
