  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. hello there!

    I read one of your posts and it seems we have problems with similar foods - like scary close.

    Do you do a rotation diet? Just wondering. Im looking for some way to eat without so much frustration.

    Thank you!

  3. Chasbari--you are brave! I got rid of all flours when I went gluten-free. The only thing my husband has is bread/buns, and beer. He even eats gluten-free pasta now! When I returned home, it was like I had been glutened, and I'm not sure what from, since I hadn't eaten anything out of the ordinary...
  4. Thank you for your replies! Salax--I've never thought myself to be overly sensitive to gluten in particular (but I am sensitive to a lot of foods in general) so I don't know if it's that I'm breathing something or what. As for liking where I live, it's OK. I like certain things about it and...
  5. Just an update, and something to ponder. I keep thinking about this subject, if living where I live is making me sick. Sometimes I think it's hooey, sometimes I think it's the key. My wedding was last weekend, in the southern CA desert. Prior to leaving, I had some tummy troubles and was...
  6. The good news is that not ALL wine barrels are sealed with a flour paste. The flour paste is used only to seal oak barrels; if a wine is un-oaked, there is no flour paste involved. Also, this practice varies by region. From what I've discovered, it can be quite common in aged French wines...
  7. Gentle--that's an excellent point. We had considered staying here another few years (because it's financially lucrative to do so) but now with the advent of all these health issues, we'll probably move as soon as we can. The area we're planning on moving is NOT agricultural by any means, so I think...
  8. Ang--that's actually why we started using the local raw honey in the first place, to help with my fiance's allergies. It seems to be really helping him! He used to get wiped out when allergy season hit, now he just gets a bit of sniffling and sneezing. As for helping me, I'm not so sure!
  9. Thanks for your response, Al. I don't know if this is possible but I've really begun to wonder since discovering my problem with gluten. I guess a sub-question of this topic would be: Can living in a wheat-concentrated area provoke symptoms or make symptoms worse? I live in an area of Montana...
  10. I apologize if this question has been asked before. Normally, I would assume that raw honey is gluten-free and safe to eat. BUT, what if the beehives are kept in an area that grows wheat and/or is surrounded by wheat fields? Is there a chance that gluten would be in the raw honey, or is that...
  11. Raven--yes, I'm one who reacts to grain-distilled alcohols! UGH! I even react to vodka made from corn, but that makes sense, since I can't eat corn anyway. Thank goodness for potato vodka.
  12. First of all, I LOVE Green's! It is fabulous, and actually tastes like beer, rather than water that someone refilled their pint glass with. Sbj--if you get a chance, try it! I think you'd love it. I'm also in the group of Beer Hangovers from Hell. I can put it away, I have a huge tolerance...
  13. Whenever I go camping or hiking, I make a huge batch of jerky. I don't have a dehydrator, so I line the bottom of the oven with foil and dry the meat at 200 degrees for a few hours. Here's the recipe: 1 cup wheat-free tamari 1/2 cup Frank's red hot spices (to taste, add as little or as much...
  14. Raven--that is very interesting about the KP! Now that you mention it, it did disappear when I eliminated grains from my diet for a few months, and slowly returned after I'd added them back in. It's not nearly as bad as it's been before, but now it's certainly the worst it's been in a long time...
