    What Are Your Symptoms When Glutened?

    I don't have any glutening symptoms. Either that, or in 2.5 years, I have never been glutened. I have half a mind to purposely eat something with gluten just to find out, but I'm too chicken. And really, what would be the point? I avoid...
  2. I don't personally see the point in paying a co-pay to find out what you already know: you have Celiac. Request a copy of the test results, and keep them in your medical records file at home.

    Taking Food On A Plane

    Don't try to take yogurt - they consider it a liquid. I had to dump mine out

    What Did You Eat Today?

    Today I ate: Breakfast: Scrambled egg, Ore-Ida hash browns, 2 slices Oscar Meyer Center Cut bacon Lunch: Trader Joe's rice pasta mac & cheese with tuna, strawberry rhubarb crisp with vanilla ice cream Dinner: Grilled steak with...
  5. Interesting topic! I was diagnosed at age 42. Up until then, I had zero symptoms and could eat anything I wanted. Suddenly one morning I had a pain in my stomach just under my sternum, and it wouldn't go away. I tried eating crackers...

    Risotto Brand?

    I bought arborio rice at Trader Joe's for my risotto. It turned out great!!!

    The Rest Of The Household...

    My kids have both been tested for antibodies and both are negative. That, as we all know, doesn't mean they'll never develop Celiac, since they certainly might have received the genes from me. If, at some point, either of them develops...

    The Rest Of The Household...

    My house has been gluten-free since I went gluten-free in August 2008. The only gluteny items allowed are beer, or snack type items that my husband keeps in his office or my daughter keeps in her room. No gluten (except beer) in the kitchen...

    I just found this regarding glucose syrup. It says it is gluten-free, FWIW: http://celiac-disease.com/glucose-syrup-is-gluten-free/

    Starting Weight Watchers!

    Hi! I'd like to join you, too. I started Weight Watchers the day after Thanksgiving, and by Valentine's Day I lost 16 lbs and reached my goal weight. Now I'm maintaining by tracking calories using an online tracker (MyPlate, on the Livestrong...

    Weight Watchers

    I've been on WW for the past month and have lost 9 lbs. Ideally, I'd like to lose 8 more. My favorite snacks are 94% fat-free microwave popcorn, or hot-air popped popcorn. Also veggies and hummus! And fruit like apples, clementines,...
  12. Our Whole Foods here doesn't carry Udi's. I requested it, but they couldn't tell me if they could/would carry it. Thanks!
  13. At what store did you buy it? Thanks.

    This Sucks

    Schar white bread is really, truly good. I haven't found it in any local stores but you can order it from Gluten Free Mall or some other sites. It's expensive (of course) and the slices are small, but they don't have that icky rice flour...
