  1. just for another data point, I tested negative to celiac and I don't the most common genes, but I'd read some of Dr H's research and since I had lots of balance problems in addition to the gastro stuff, I was determined to go gluten free even without a diagnosis. It probably took about 3 months...
  2. Hello all! Sorry, I haven't been around much at all. Welcome, new peeps! I am another Australian (Sydney) I can't imagine what the food offerings would've been like a few decades ago. I'll be gluten free 3 years this June and there's just more and more out there. I adore the new Purebred range...
  3. I meant to bring back the brownies but I uh, ate them all on the way. But I brought back english muffins (from the UK) and I regularly bring back Udi's bread / bagels, Chex cereal and snickerdoodles from the US. I've even brought back lara bars from the US once because they were so much cheaper...
  4. Ooh, you lucky thing. Have a great trip! I loved the gluten free brownies that they sold in Sainsburys. I ate so many of them when I was there in 2010. Plus you can bring back stuff at much better prices than we pay here, customs don't mind packaged baked goods (I speak from experience, haha)...
  5. I am so totally in love with the pure bred range. I have missed sausage sizzles so much but lately I have been having them on the roles (I split them in half and toast first) and they are SO GOOD. Plus I've been eating toast like there's no tomorrow. You don't want to know how much weight I have...
  6. I'd have conversations with my colleague, turn to my computer to start working on whatever we'd discussed (literally seconds late), and then have to ask her what we were talking about. Happily, 2 + years gluten free and I am now *much* better at remembering. Me too. I used to crash into...
  7. EbonyJade, like Saz says, read the label, there are tonnes that are fine but no easy list. Is there any product in particuar that you're wondering about? We could let you know what we eat. There are quite a few that are in the regular parts of the supermarket. I'm in Coles practically every day...
  8. Also, yay about the new country life bread! I saw it and it looked sooooooo much better than the evil old stuff. Good for them. I don't really eat bread but glad there's a good one easily available. I was on teaching prac awhile back and I noticed a child's sandwich disintegrating into a pile of...
  9. Gluten Free Expo in Sydney! http://www.glutenfreeexpo.com.au/ Today and tomorrow. Oops late notice
  10. So true! On one hand, the loss of tourist dollars must really hit hard, but on the other hand, you probably don't want them cluttering up the place either! And yeah, the issue of what to see (that's not being totally nosy about peoples destroyed lives) And I don't have any desire to know what an...
  11. Shroomie, I always wanted to visit Chch and never got around to it and the earthquake was kind of a major dampener (which made me feel bad as I'm sure tourists are needed) but I may well fly over for a gluten free bakery! We had one here in Leichhardt but it closed down.
  12. Hi Josie! We don't get that bread, I don't think. But handy to know. Yeah, I overdosed on jacket potatoes when I first went gluten free
  13. Yep, I worked in a supermarket too, for years. I am so glad I left before I went gluten free. The flour everywhere was the least of the stuff I got covered in back then, eek. It will be interesting to see what the future brings. There is such awareness now. And even if a store isn't entirely gluten...
  14. love the letter shroomie! I need to use it for woolies. Coles I'm mostly happy with. Yeah, I don't mind about the bread because I know that bread is filled by the bread reps and not the store. But the other bread products would be better together. I looked in the crumpet section again last...
  15. I wrote to Coles this morning, hopefully they'll take it on board. Those gluten-gluttons probably don't realise that we treat the bakery section like it's full of poison. I specifically wrote that they'd hidden the english muffins in the "invisible to me" section of the store Has anyone seen...
