  1. My son is autistic. We transitioned VERY slowly to gluten free which made it easier for us but I suspect that's why we didn't see any significant behavior changes. But every time we try to add it back, we see huge changes in behavior. Meltdowns (which is actually not common for him), "spacy",...
  2. Slightly OT, but when I make beans from scratch I've discovered it's way easier to bake them in the oven. I cover them with several inches of water and put in a cast iron dutch oven, then bake at 325 for an hour and 45 or so. No need to presoak, comes out perfect every time. I always make extra...
  3. Another option for sweetener might be Stevia. There are a couple of blogs with gluten free, dairy free, and sugar free recipes. I know of the Spunky Coconut and Elana's Pantry, but I'm sure there are others.
  4. OK I've got to defend Domino's (at least a little). My son is not celiac, he is on a gluten-free diet for his autism. We have discovered that he can handle limited amounts of gluten, so we don't worry excessively about CC. We see behavior changes when he gets a lot of it (i.e. several meals or...
  5. Even though in this case it's limited and flawed, I'm always glad when a national chain at least tries to meet the needs of people on gluten free diets. Eating out is and easily being able to order off the menu is something that I really miss since my son has gone gluten free. My son is not celiac...
  6. My 3 year old hates meat except the very occasional cheeseburger so we do meatless meals a lot. If you're ok with eggs, that gives you more options. I make bean patties a lot - rinsed and drained mashed great northern beans, some bread crumbs, and egg, and seasoning, shaped into patties and pan...
  7. We went to the one in Orlando. It was right after they introduced it so it's possible the kinks weren't worked out yet. Or we were all just being too picky!
  8. So I guess we are the only ones that didn't like it! I found the crust really "ricey" and it was VERY expensive. My son, the one who is gluten-free, wouldn't eat it. We ordered a white pizza and I think it was $17 for a medium. Having said that, I really do appreciate them doing that. It...
  9. Where can I get San-J's? Regular grocery store or do I need to make a trip to the health food store? We have been using La Choy's but I don't like the way it tastes.
  10. We made the cream sauce from cashew milk from the Spunky Coconut, added it to some gluten-free pasta and added a can of chickpeas. My picky 3 year old ate it, so we're adding this recipe to our rotation.
