  1. If anyone lives near a Woodman's store (Northern IL/Wisconsin grocery chain), they now stock gluten-free Rice Krispies (in the 'regular' cereal aisle for $2.99) and the new Udi's hamburger buns (freezer, $3.99/package).

    Question For Other Migraine Sufferers

    I've been a migraine sufferer since age 5. I only get them now when I ingest gluten - it is actually one of my later symptoms. They really aren't nearly as severe or long lasting as they used to be (pre-gluten free). I remember they would...

    Poll- How Tall Are You?

    I'm 5'6", which is about average for my family. Interestingly, the only other person in my family with a diagnosis is my grandma who is about 4'10".

    Anyone Not Gain Weight?

    I actually lost weight - and fast. I had always been really skinny, but in the 6 months before diagnosis I gained 40lbs (up to 155 lbs - I am 5'6"). Then when I was diagnosed, I lost about 20 lbs really quickly. Since, I have still been...

    Cookies

    I like the chocolate KinniTOOS (very similar to Oreos).
  7. I also subscribe & save on Amazon. I like the Oskri bars & the Bumble Bars, but those are very rare treats. You can also get gluten-free Bisquick for just over $4 a box. Dry beans are much cheaper & have way less sodium. I...
  8. I like CO Bigelow's Mentha Lip Shines (from Bath & Body Works) - the Ultra is amazing.
  9. I was very colicky, too. Interesting article about a study relating colic & celiac: http://celiachometest.typepad.com/celiac_home_test/2009/08/colic-in-babies-could-lead-to-celiac-disease.html My mom is convinced that because of the...

    Bread Maker

    Just let them rise & baked them in the oven. I don't think I ever had a successful loaf pre-breadmaker.
  11. RE: Keratosis Pilaris - my derm actually told me that KP can itch because it manifests through dry skin blocking the follicule/pore. Not sure if that is true or not, but for me, these bumps itch really bad & I end up with scars.

    Thanksgiving Desserts

    My go-to is always dump cake. So easy, so bad for you, and everyone loves it. I want to stick to something easy this year because I have to make a whole gluten free meal for my fiance's family.

    Good Gluten Free Bread Mix?

    Another vote for gluten-free Pantry - definitely the best I have tried.

    Bread Maker

    I also have a Cuisinart with a gluten free option - it works great. No more teeny tiny brick-like loaves for me!
  15. It all depends who I am speaking to - if I am at a restaurant, I say "gluten allergy" (and sometimes the server will say "Oh you have Celiac?"). If it is someone I come in contact with often, I will explain it - I usually say "I have celiac...
