    Reading, pickleball, learning about gluten free cooking.
  1. I am a gluten-free Vegan also, There are a lot of good blogs out there. Here are the links to a couple of me favorites. http://xgfx.org/ http://madamegluten-freevegetarian.blogspot.com/ This one has some great veggie burger recipes I LOVE the garlic veggie burger best!
  2. hello all, I have been gluten free since March of this year. My symptoms have always been fatigue, body ache, nausea, brain fog. Since being gluten-free after 3 months, I have now had these awful bouts of vomiting. Just all is a sudden I will get nauseous like someone punched me in the stomach and then I hit the floor running to the bathroom as fast as I can. I had to pull over once because I wasn't going to make it home. 3 days ago I had dry heaves every 15min for 2 hours! I found out it was a med. change that did it. Anyway, I was never like this before when eating gluten and now that I am gluten free? Why now? I follow a Vegan diet, so no dairy. The episodes pass usually one to two hours after starting then I am all done, just wiped out. Has any one ever had anything like this happen to them?

    Cooking From Scratch...

    You know something I have done is put my meal in the crockpot at night before I go to bed. When I get up in the morning it is done and I put it in the frig and just heat it up at dinner time. I like doing that better then getting up early
  4. I don't have any problems with it. It is dairy, lactose, casein, soy and gluten free. Taste like american cheese not cheddar, but it better then nothing when you need cheese. Best non-dairy cheese I have found as far as taste and melting.

    Ideas For Lunches On The Go?

    I follow a gluten free, vegan diet. I will take La Victoria wraps with hummus and veggie, Brown rice cakes with a nut butter and banana, Veggie salad with almonds for protein, Brown rice with veggie in a to go container. Ezekiel makes a gluten free English muffin that is good and I will take that with nut butter. Also, I like Schar sandwich bread and rolls. Makes a great PB&J! Udi's has egg whites so I won't eat it.
  6. Wow, so sorry your little one is going through that. I am a early childhood teacher and the thing I always recommend to my parents is to call the children's hospital which it 2 hours away from our small town. They deal with children 24/7. I would look for the nearest children's hospital and start there. Good luck to you.
  7. Thank you for this post! I haven't been feeling well and I had just used that mix this past weekend. This might be why!........Here is my favorite cookie recipe if you can have peanut butter, chunky or smooth works. Don't use the refrigerator kind. I buy Smart Balance because it has the omega 3 in it. 1 cup of peanut butter 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar ( or your can use 1 cup of reg. sugar but I like this combo) 1 eggs ( I use Ener-G egg replacer instead of eggs but either works) 1 tsb. baking soda Mix, roll into a ball ( I do NOT roll in sugar), Place on cookie sheet ( I spray with PAM), smash down with a fork. bake at 350 for about 15 min. I like big cookies, this makes about 12 large cookies, I usually double it, this is a single batch. Smaller cookies might take a little less time. They are our favorite cookie. Gluten free and with no eggs they are Vegan too! Without the flour they have so much peanut butter flavor. I get a lot of requests for these when I am bringing something to a gathering....... Enjoy

    Do you buy it fresh and in bulk? Could be C.C.
  9. No there was some change, I wasn't as tired and I still had brain fog but no headache. It was because I was feel a little better that made me look at everything....Also it was a couple of weeks before the fog lifted. All the best to you. I hope you figure it out. I am a believer that diet can change your health for the better....I also stopped eating beef, chicken and fish before the gluten free because of high blood pressure and cholesterol. I think eating vegetarian has greatly helped in my feel so much better.

  12. I Had gone through something similar. I was eating gluten free and not feeling better. I was going to give up but I decided I need to make sure I was doing things right. I found out that I had gluten in my lip gloss, shampoo, makeup and thinks like mouthwash had a cross contamination issue. I found other things that had a possible contamination. SO after getting rid of it ALL. Every thing! I bought a new toaster, cutting boards, mixing spoons and so on ( cheap stuff, I didn't spend a lot). I was for sure 100% gluten free inside and out, top to bottom and only then did I feel amazing and all the symptom went away and the fog lifted. I don't know it this would be the same for you but look at everything in your life that is by your mouth and make sure there is no gluten. Hope you feel better soon

    I Am So Dumb

    I did that before.....so sorry! hope your reactions isn't to bad. I had to start asking my husband to make his own sandwiches because I wasn't thinking and would lick the knife. I wear gloves now so I won't lick my fingers. It helps a lot
  15. I did start to put on weight. When I was diagnosed I started trying all the gluten free snacks. I started baking gluten-free cakes to try. Eating breads. The funny thing is I wasn't eating food like this before the diagnoses but felt I needed to try foods that were out there to see what my options were. I have gotten away for gluten-free "Junk foods/snacks" and I have started loosing again, which as a over weight Celiac , it is a good thing
