  1. What eKatherine said. Ingredients aren't copyrighted, just the preperation instructions. Please post! Stephanie
  2. OMG, you were BLESSED to have a family doctor accurately diagnose you based on blood tests! So many people have had the opposite experience. Definitely, I vote for finding another...
  3. Here's another thought. Things changed about my health and how I experience life since going gluten free which I did not expect or know were problems to begin with. Mood swings...
  4. I had both done at the same time, too (my Dr called it a double-decker!) and I was pretty well back to my normal self an hour later. I had some major blood sugar swings because...
  5. Can someone post the recipe or the original thread? I'm cuckoo for coconuts. Thanks! Stephanie
  6. I started with depression and anxiety in my teens and through my 20's was medicated for a bunch of things - was diagnosed as Bipolar 2 with psychotic episodes, spent some nights...
  7. I think if I'd lost 10 pounds after going dairy free, I might have kept going with it! Nothing like that happened during my two separate month-long trials, and at the end of them...
  8. I wonder what activated charcoal is made from? It's probably some kind of wood, I'd guess. I take it occasionally when I may have gotten some nightshade (peppers, tomatoes, eggplant...
  9. I have not been diagnosed with it, but I have really bad periods. I have used natural progesterone cream and it has helped - then I talked with my gyno and she prescribed me natural...
  10. I seem to react to very small amounts, but have not reacted to any Bob's stuff. Some of Bob's gluten-free stuff has a big mention of it being gluten-free on the label and others...
  11. For ice cream, coconut milk is great (if you make your own ice cream). I like to take 2 cups coconut milk, one ripe banana, blend in blender, add 1 tsp vanilla, and stevia/agave...
  12. This has happened to me - not with dairy, but other problem foods for me. I think it's your body's last ditch effort to talk you back into eating that stuff again - think withdrawl...
  13. I'm pretty sure that turmeric is responsible for my cholesterol going down. I was tested at having cholesterol of 237, then 240 (6 months later), then 240 again (2 months later...
  14. I have subtype 6 - it's a DQ1 and that can cause some neurological as well as gastrointestinal symptoms. Have you tried going on a gluten free diet? If not, you may be surprised...
  15. I don't know that any of my pets have/had it, but I have two cats and two dogs and they all get gluten free food because when they have food with gluten, *I* end up getting sick...
  16. I recently made a great pasta salad we were eating for three days (made a bunch for a party and had leftovers as not as many showed - more for us!!!) with Tinkyada pasta, the rotelli...
  17. I haven't tried these flavors yet but I saw there are now Chocolate Coffe, Chocolate Mint and a third (can't remember that one) - they are ecalled Maya, but they are Lara Bars....
  18. I have a former-"best" friend who is vegetarian and I always accomodated that (she's no health nut - in fact she drinks like a fish and smokes like a chimney and cusses like a sailor...
  19. I know - I'm pretty impressed. Most say "call ahead" but there were a number that actually offered something gluten-free and that is very cool. I think that might be the greatest...
  20. It's in the Natural Ingredients or something. I was taking them last year after a glutening episode and kept getting worse. Then I posted on here and found out from a bunch of immediate...
  21. OK, I did some research - I've heard a lot of people say stevia is too expensive. Packet for packet, here's some pricing of Stevia versus Splenda. From Walgreens, a drug...
  22. I wonder if it's a matter of time? I actually went from a life of migraines to only getting them now when I have gluten. It could be that you have to heal first. There is a very...
  23. I'm going in August... just found this site: FoodVancouver.com - gluten free restaurants Says there are 63 on the site with gluten-free capabilities (mainly gluten-free pasta...
  24. Just to share an anecdotal experience: I react badly to Splenda. When I consume it I get worsening fatigue to the point where I collapse on the sofa when I drag home from work,...
  25. Or worse, you're allergic to the stuff in Beano (as I am - it's made with aspergillus fungus). That Pepto ad kills me. Also, the ones where there are people sitting at the counter...
