  1. squirmingitch you are funny I never said the spice is 7 years old, Ahorsesoul's post is 7 years old. I only posted that yesterday! The Lavender's is at least 2-3 years old though...probably not as fresh as it could be. But you are right, I should contact the company anyway! Thanks for replying!
  2. I just dug out my ancient Cavender's remembering I often had the same question...I always thought it was basically salt, pepper and oregano. I realize now mine does not list msg ... it is salt free. It was something I used to used to season a greek salad in my "low fat" days to offset the awful taste of fat free dressings!!! But not wanting to use it or throw it away, I just kept putting it back without using it. Thank you Ahorsesoul, for your research!!!
  3. It is true some E's are safe and some are from wheat germ. As a kid I struggled with such dry sensitive skin issues, and in the winter I had patches on my face that were like burns as severe as scalding! PLUS, I had asthma as well! Maybe I was Celiac all along, I don't know but Vitamin E, Vitamin E lotions and Vitamin E creams were always so soothing! Years later, being gluten-free, I tend to use straight oils like coconut, cocoa butter, grape seed & olive to stay safe. I recently had surgery and I am now really itchy from the anesthesia. I Just sent the hubby out to walmart to pick up some vitamin e cream my mom used to use on me as a kid ….. this one: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Fruit-of-the-Earth-Vitamin-E-Skin-Care-Cream-4-oz/10314800 It was so good and SO inexpensive, it always comes 2 together at a time. But alas hubby was on the ball and called me to tell me "no go!!! it clearly says contains wheat germ oil!"At least that company clearly designated the source of their E!!! Sorry to hear of your getting glutened NancyKay! Can anyone here please share any safe Vitamin E products that they know of? I know now that Winter is here (and I will never be able to use that cream again) I will be on the hunt for a reasonably priced E cream that has very few ingredients and is free of wheat germ. Good luck everyone searching for safe products! Best wishes for a Happy, Healthy, Safe Gluten Free New Year!!!!
  4. Hi All, I hope you are all well! I wondered why mold lady's link was broken and I googled the recipe by that name and I see the site with that Seven Day Adventist Recipe appears to be dead. I wonder if I can repost the recipe? I have not tried this, but look like they'd be perfect made with Gluten Free oats. There are a world of recipes out there…but when I originally posted I was specifically looking for a sausage substitute with a higher protein content that would replace other veggie analogs like Boca Burger brand or Morningstar Farm brand type products. OK, so here is the recipe I believe was posted: Oatmeal-pecan burgers(not sure what the "25’ turn 20 ‘ more" (phase I vegan) means but I am guessing that was supposed to be on the bottom of the recipe like so: Oatmeal-pecan burgers Boil: 4 ½ c. water 1/3 c. + 1T. tamari 2 t. onion powder l l/2 t. garlic powder l/2 t. celery salt l/3c. + 1T. nutritional yeast flakes l/4 c. sesame seeds --------------------then add ¾ c. ground pecans or walnuts 2 T. dried minced onions l t. dried mined garlic 1 t. sage 4 c. whole oats stir and cook again……….then cool use 1/3 c. size and shape into patties fry on a non-stick pan or spray pan with oil and Bake @ 350 F for 25 mins turn for 20 more (oner similar tweaked recipes have specified 15 mins turn for 15 more) (phase I vegan) Enjoy in Good Health! Love & Light, Tee
  5. Hi Laura yes I love Soyrizo too. I know of two that are gluten-free Frieda's and Melissa's. Unfortunately I have only been able to find one gluten free one (Melissa's) and that was only once when I was on vacation in Miami. I have yet to find it again gluten free. All I ever see is Yves, but there is wheat listed as an allergen.
  6. Aldi had gluten-free cookies IDENTICAL to enjoy Life's brand soft cookies. The Brownie (with chocolate chips) and Snickerdoodle cookies. I am Not entirely sure they are not enjoy life's brand... rebranded for Aldi as EVERYTHING, taste, texture, size even the plastic tray they sit in is exactly the same (except for the outside wrapper). They have brownie mix (not tried yet) to bake and Frozen pizza and Ravioli. The gluten-free Pasta was $1.50 a bag (Where do you see gluten-free priced that way) and no difference in quality than any National brand that is gluten-free and already established. They told my hubby they are testing out their gluten-free line to see how it does...so if you have an Aldi near you RUN and buy these high quality well priced gluten-free products and show them we are out there, and appreciate NOT being gouged by companies taking advantage of our dietary needs. Be well! Love & Light, Tee
  7. It has been a very long time since I posted this…got pretty fed up with gluten-free vegetarian companies after this. Since the passing of laws forced to acknowledge gluten in products (remember when they did not need to disclose this folks?) There has been a huge trend the try "The Gluten Free Diet"!!! I am hoping to generate some action on this thread perhaps new companies have cropped up with the huge surge of gluten-free people. I have found this site for gluten-free Vegetarian NON GMO sausage: http://solcuisine.com/american-retail/sol-cuisine-veggie-breakfast-patties But have yet to locate the product! I implore anyone (Veg'n or not) to post any gluten-free Vegetarian findings you have run across along the way! Thank You in advance. Love & Light and health to you all, Tee
  8. I would imagine that the dietary changes are the validation in and of themselves, especially if there is improvement in health I had a baby with multiple intolerances, not diagnosed by Dr Fine. My husband and I could not imagine how our baby had all these health issues that were found to be through food intolerances. Years after my child was born I was sick all the time...I suspected Gluten and contacted Enterolab, Not only was I Gluten Intolerant, but Dr Fine found me high in antibodies for all of the culprits my baby was intolerant of as well. I guess what he got in infancy I had all along, either dormant or triggered in adulthood. But I want to also say... I had learning disabilities and rashes all through my childhood....and I believe it was the Gluten (and maybe then some). So when I look back (and maybe some others here would agree as well) ..even though I did not have full blown Celiac symptoms growing up...there was stuff smoldering under the surface...that I can only attribute to an underlying cause now.
  9. I agree with Nora especially if you are eating in Restaurants making gluten pasta fresh...flour all over! OP posted quite some time ago...perhaps you can update us how things have been for you in Rome!
  10. I am pretty sure Dr Schar products are made in Italy Only the Name is German ...and IMHO Italian Gluten free products blow away American gluten-free products! Just saying!
  11. What's that jegster sweet creamery butter!
  12. Ivan I will post to you something I just mentioned to a poster Brian in Serbia.: I do know for sure Russia has way more resources than Ukraine for example who has next to nothing. But even in Ukraine (Kyiv) I was able to find in the larger markets Orgran gluten-free Pastas, and cookies. If you contact Orgran... I am sure they will tell you where to find gluten-free in Croatia! Dobra sreća!! I STRONGLY suggest for you to go here to drop down window and switch it from inside australia to outside australia..write to them they are a wonderful company. And no I do not work for them, but they saved the day when I was in Ukraine over the course of 3 months. I cried when I found them in Mandarin Plaza in Kyiv! http://www.orgran.com/contact

  14. My child just asked me if I ever went to IHOP. Being that I had as a child, I felt so sad for him AND my gluten eating child who has never been there., We have stayed away from IHOP all this time. So I came to look for an update. This last post was from 2007. Does anyone know if I am missing a more current update here on the forums, or has the IHOP issue stopped right here in 2007 dead in the water never to be revived again? Thank you! PS I am mostly in agreement with mmaccartney that "I don't trust restaurants at all. None."...But...I guess I am still hoping that more big businesses will be smart enough to try to include other less taken care of populations!
  15. I am so in agreement with this skbird. It is so deceptive and quite a tease might I add. Why bend over backwards trying to convince the public how the process eliminates Gluten if they are going to reintroduce it anyway? It's like kid's breakfast cereals that the process has destroyed the vitamins so they spray it back on anyway. I SO hankered for this concept (sprouted=gluten-free) to be true! I was raised hippie-ish and cruncy granola-ish, I used to knead & bake my own breads while dreaming of an Earth Mama lifestyle. What a fly in the ointment Celiac disease turned out to be. Now I do bake in my machine often from recipes often from mix (the latter not truly qualifying as homemade in MY crunchy definition) But I do truly yearn for healthy bread.... NOT just bread that is healthy for me because it doesn't make me ill! I am tired of all the white starchy flours...and missing whole grains and sprouted grains. All the "whole (gluten-free) Grain" substitutes in the world never seem "whole grain" enough for me! Love & Light, Tee
