  1. Thank you all for your responses. I will have to talk more with my friend to get more specific information. Her son may be gluten intolerant, or there may be other issues to address. Hard to tell. Again, thanks!
  2. gluten-free Lover, he is not celiac that I'm aware of, although he's not been tested. I've suggested in the past that the entire family try being gluten free because of multiple health problems, but they're not amenable to this. NCGI is a possibility too. If he is NCGI, why do you question if a problem exists?
  3. A friend asked me the following, and I'm not sure what to tell her. I did suggest she look in to leaky gut syndrome. Other than that, any suggestions? (Yes, I know... I'm puzzled also about her use of the term 'regular bread products', as opposed to whole grains.) Thank you in advance! "Nutrition question: do you know of anything in the outer coating (the rough parts) of grains like wheat that would be an irritant or allergen? Sean has never been good with whole grains, but he has no trouble with regular bread products. It finally became obvious when we shared a whole-grain muffin that was very soft and finely-ground, but still made his stomach upset. It has me baffled." Thanks, -Beth.
  4. Just to let you know, Vitacost . com has gluten free food products on sale (15% off) in honor of Celiac Awareness Month. I think they carry the brands you mention.
  5. For a variation on the kielbasa with grape jam and chili sauce in the crock pot.... I've done something similar with meatballs, using grape jam and BBQ sauce. I use Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. I had to make my own meatballs, since I couldn't find any pre-made that are gluten free, but it's not too difficult. You can make them with ground turkey to save some money. And yes, this really is an amazing dish. You will not have left overs, believe me! http://www.food.com/recipe/sweet-bbq-meatballs-355770
  6. Thank you for your input. I was wondering if the portions were adequate. The packages do seem expensive for what's in them. It's probably just as easy and more cost effective to put my own packets together. I can make a meal out of a handful of almonds, a banana, and a Kind bar if I have to. I tend to stay away from processed, prepackaged foods (except for the Kind bars and the Kit's Organic Bars by Clif), anyway.
  7. Has anyone eaten the Go Picnic Gluten Free meals? I'm thinking about getting a few for our vacation in June. They have a buy one get one free special on until tomorrow at midnight. I'd love to read a review! Thanks. Beth.
  8. A friend who also gluten free has told me that she has eaten safely at Asian Box in San Francisco. I haven't been there personally.
  9. I'd be wary of the "natural flavors" listed in 'other ingredients'. This product also contains sucralose (ie Splenda), so personally, I wouldn't touch it. Splenda does not like me. http://www.zantrex3.com/products/zantrex-skinny-stix-berry-fusion.html
  10. Jennie O turkey products are listed as gluten free on their website, including their sweet and hot Italian turkey sausage. http://www.jennieo.com/products/76-Lean-Sweet-Italian-Turkey-Sausage
  11. try these.... http://www.alterecofoods.com/product/dark-black-truffles/
  12. Well, heck. Godiva chocolate also states that their products are not safe for celiac or NCGI folks. Sigh.
  13. ok, one more... if you will be in Half Moon Bay, Fish and Frites has amazing fish and chips, with a dedicated fryer and a rice based coating available for the freshly caught fish, direct from the fishing boats in Pillar Point Harbor. And yes, you can eat the fries, too.
  14. Also, check out The Counter restaurant chain. A bit pricey for burgers and fries, but these are gourmet burgers and excellent, gluten-free fries. I've enjoyed their bison burgers. They offer lettuce wrap or a bun, which I believe may be Udi's. I generally prefer the lettuce wrap, but that's just me.
  15. In San Carlos, not too far from SF, is Zest Bakery. Wonderful baked goods, including sandwiches. Dedicated gluten free bakery. Enjoy your trip!
  16. I made a gluten-free graham cracker crust for the first time for Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. I suspect I didn't pat it out thin enough, as it was thick and intensely flavored (graham cracker and butter) after it was baked. Any suggestions for next time? I baked the pie in a ceramic pie plate. Would glass be better? Thanks! --Beth.
  17. I'm so sorry all this is coming down on you at once. It's fine to have a pity party! Keeping all that emotion in isn't good for you, as long as you are able to move forward. Sounds like you are doing that. If you are a make things at home type of person, these links may be useful for you. I hope you feel better. http://www.culturesforhealth.com/cultured-coconut/ http://tasty-yummies.com/2014/06/03/how-to-make-coconut-milk-yogurt/
  18. Thanks, good to know. I'm planning a gluten-free graham cracker crust for my pumpkin pie, but maybe I'll try the Kinnikinnik crusts instead. Or maybe in addition. Hmmm.
  19. These might be good to keep around for emergencies. Thanks for the information. This link goes to a coupon. http://www.gopicnic.com/site/coupons.html#.VGUEDvnF890
  20. A restaurant called "The Counter" is very gluten free and other dietary needs friendly. it's not exactly fast food, but it IS burgers and fries. I've eaten at two of their stores, one in Meridian, Idaho, and one in San Mateo, California. Both were excellent in terms of food and service. They offer both regular and sweet potato fries. There are locations for this store all over the world, so maybe there is one close to you.
  21. Numi makes an excellent tea. Their organic jasmine green is lovely. The dragon jasmine pearls tea from Teavana is also excellent, although pricey.
  22. Jennie-O products have been fine for me. Their website is clear on their gluten status. I like their sweet Italian turkey sausage and their breakfast sausages. For me, their hot Italian sausage is WAY too spicy, but that's just my personal taste. Their website is http://www.jennieo.com/ Take a look, see what you think. PS this may help more http://www.jennieo.com/products/collection/3-Gluten-Free
  23. Not exactly IN something, but...... Deep Fried Gluten on the menu in a Chinese restaurant. Seeing that made me go pale, and I refused to eat anything there. Pulled out a food bar from my purse and enjoyed the tea.
  24. Sounds like you have maintained at least some sense of humor, good for you! Perhaps this article might help? http://theglobalfork.blogspot.com/2013/03/cooking-at-altitude-basic-overview.html
