    Giving Up Restaurants

    Hi, I absolutely understand your frustration. After going gluten free I quickly realized that even "safe" restaurants screw up and tend to have cross contamination problems, or a lack of understanding of celiac disease. I have not eaten in a restaurant in 2 years and have healed so much faster. The only cross contamination I have had problems with has been unavoidable things. If you can manage it I highly recommend stopping eating at restaurants, you will feel so much better, plus it is so much more cost effective to cook your meals.
  3. I just head about the betty crocker mixes and am super excited. I have one question though, does anyone know about the cross contamination issue with these mixes? Are they made in a separate facility?
  4. I have been gluten free for 2 years now. I got tested and everything, and feel a hundred times better than I did growing up. My only complaint about my diet is my family. They just don't get it. What set off this post is I got a call from my grandmother last night telling me she did not want me to live my life in a bubble because I am a celiac, and the only thing I could think was at least I am healthy, and taking care of myself at a young age (23) My moms entire side of the family has had every health problem attributed to celiac disease, and though none of them have been tested, I would be willing to put money on the fact that the celiac comes from their side. My mom especially acts like this is a choice of mine and seems to feel the need to constantly point out all the things I cannot do, cannot eat. Yes this diagnosis has had a huge impact on my life, especially my social life, but I can honestly say I don't feel left out, my life just takes a little more planning now. I would love to hear other peoples experiences with their families. Thanks
  5. I am looking for a safe brand of hamburger and hotdog buns. Along with gluten my other allergies are soy,corn,sesame, and dairy (i can tolerate a little dairy) Thanks

    Recipe Rice Wraps

    Food4Life are by far the best tortillas I have found. I usually put them in the oven for a minute or two to warm them up and then use them as a warp. They are super good.
  7. I always had a white, furry tongue when I was younger and when I went off gluten and got through the detox process it cleared up. Now when I eat something that does not set well with my system, especially a lot of yeast the white tongue comes back.
  8. I have been gluten free for about 2 years now. I am extremely careful about cross contamination and always check ingredients and check with manufacturers. I also can tell immediately when I have been glutened, my symptoms are always the same and always come in the same order. I always get migraines when I get glutened. So heres' my question. Yesterday I did two things differently. I had a morning meeting and there was a box of fresh bagels in the room, I hate the smell of baked stuff like that now. The other thing I did differently was I bought a new bottle of Boulder Hot Sauce. I always eat this hot sauce and have never reacted. I wrote them an email and to my understanding as of right now they have not changed their ingredients or processing at all. Is it possible to have a gluten reaction from breathing around gluten containing foods. This may be a silly question but I am trying to figure out what happened. I did not get near the bagels, I did not touch crumbs, in fact I didn't even touch the table they were on, I washed my hands immediately after the meeting and before I ate. Any thoughts would be great. Thanks so much

    Dating Help

    I have been gluten free for a little over a year. I am just starting to date again and have a very random question. If you are on a date with someone who eats gluten, while on the date, and you kiss them afterwards, can you get glutened? If so, what do you do? Again I know this may be a random question, but I have been wondering. Thanks
  10. Ok, so I have been gluten free for two years. The thought that bottle water could contain gluten never crossed my mind until I saw a post about Dasani water being gluten free. Is there a chance for gluten in bottled water? I always drink Aquafina. I just thought i'd put this out there. Thanks so much
  11. I have had the feeling of pressure in between my eyes for almost a year now. I have been gluten free for about a year and refined sugar free for a year and a half. I have looked into sinus issues but that doesn't seem to be the cause. I have not done a candida cleanse in a long time, what would I need to cut out of my diet to see if this would relieve my headaches? My other thought is, I have heard that sometimes it can take up to a year or two to fully detox from gluten. Could I be still detoxing and this is how it's affecting me? Any help would be great. Thanks
  12. I have a recipe for biscuits and it requires buttermilk powder. Is there any substitute I can use for this that anyone knows of? Thanks so much
  13. I cannot have any sugar more refined than evaporated cane juice. Everyone I have asked says that brown sugar is just refined white sugar mixed with molasses which means I cannot eat it. Is there any natural brown sugar or a brown sugar substitute I can use in recipes. I am putting together my Thanksgiving menu and running into problems with this. Thanks so much
  14. Is butter gluten free? I currently use horizon butter and just realized i'd never known if it was gluten free or not. Thanks
  15. I have talked to the corporate office at MAC and know for sure that the matte eye shadow is gluten free, but I am trying to figure out if the satin, frost, and velvets are gluten free? thanks
