  1. I have a quick question regarding testing for DSs. DS#1 was tested for celiac (my grandmother and DH's grandmother both had it and my mother has it - my testing has come back negative two times) at age 7. I've been told that celiac can show up at any time and especially with the family history it might be a good idea to have DSs (now they are 7 and 9) tested every other year "in case". What are your thoughts?
  2. 2nd - I always ask for test results - my own and my families and I've never been questioned about it at all. Im' sure this is something the doctor's office is used to.
  3. My son also is allergic to nuts [not peanuts] and was allergic to milk and soy as a baby. Just always looking for new and exciting meal ideas with those "restrictions" if you will... what are some things your child eats? DS is 6 1/2 now. [school lunches are the biggest deal right now] Thanks!!
  4. Let's see... My Grandmother had is as does my mother and my 6 yr old son. DH's Grandmother had it and I suspect his mother has it, but she keeps *forgetting* to be tested. DH will be tested next Tuesday and hopefully DS #2 will be tested after that (he's almost 5). I had a blood test which came out negative as did my sister and her children.

    Amazing Walt Disney World Dining Experiences!

    This is so great to hear! We're planning a trip in mid February and staing at Shades of Green with my parents (mother is Celiac) and kids (oldest is Celiac-trying to get youngest tested next). I was a bit concerned, but it sounds like it's gonna be fine! Thanks for the info!
  6. Some of you may already know this... but I just found this out: check this out - gluten free sausages ... they are available at Costco (we dont' have a whole foods or trader joes near us so this is a new discovery) (and other places I'm sure)... and only 4 of the flavors are NOT gluten free... their website is: -------------- Forwarded Message: -------------- From: "Brian Scardina" <> To: <> Subject: RE: Gluten free sausages? Date: Fri, 13 Jan 2006 20:52:19 +0000 The only flavors that are NOT gluten free are the following: Artichoke & Olive Cilantro Green Onion Roasted Red Pepper & Garlic I hope this helps!

Due to dietary restrictions several members of my family have (celiac disease-an autoimmune disease which causes in intolerance to gluten [wheat, rye, barley, malt]) I am wondering if you have a list of your products which are gluten free? I've checked some of your sausage packages and they *seem* to be gluten free [those that I've checked], but lable reading can be difficult sometimes. Any help you can provide would be wonderful. We enjoy your products (especially your flavored sausages) and would like to continue doing so. If there is such a list, I would love to share it with our Celiac support group as well. Finding products like this that are readily available, gluten free AND taste great can be daunting. Anyway-Thank you for any information you have regarding this matter. Sincerely, Heather Wiersma
  7. PLEASE post the recipe! I'm always looking for more kid-friendly gluten-free recipes.
  8. That sounds great! We've done it with dried, blenderized gluten-free bread before. We'll have to check that out. Thanks!
  9. No - you can't have it again. Celiac is what damanged your gut - and will begin to damage it again if you being eating it again. That's my understanding anyway.

    What Should I Make

    My son really likes homemade chicken nuggets (coated w/gluten free bread we dry and put in the blender). We tried both baked and fried (he liked them so much he asked for THEM to be his school birthday treat for when other kids bring stuff in!) Tacos are always a hit (you can use ground turkey or chicken instead of hamburger) Grilled chicken Scrambled ham and eggs (they like breakfast for dinner) BTW - My DSs are 4 1/2 and 6. HTH
  11. Could I get one of those too? RedHead-Heather@Comcast.Net Thanks!!

    gluten-free Food List Inside

    Could I also get a copy of that list? Thanks!!
  13. Supposedly it's from the Celiac Disease Center at Columbia University and it's a children's cookbook. I hate buying things site unseen and was wondering if anyone has seen this and/or likes it. Thanks!
  14. This is from their site... I have several food allergies. Do any of your sausages contain gluten or dairy products? Also, can you tell me what is in your spice blends? Gluten is an ingredient in soy sauce which we use in some of our sausages. These are Thai, Lamb with Rosemary and Lemon Chicken. As for dairy products, our Pesto Sausage contains Romano cheese. Our spice blends are our trade secrets. However, if you are allergic to any particular spice, please contact us. We will happily tell you if it is in any of our products. They look like they'd be pretty good for quick meals if you avoid the four flavors that have soy sauce in them.
