About Me

To sum it up, I am a Celiac adopted into a non Celiac family. Took years to figure out what was wrong due to my birth mother refusing contact or releasing updated medical records. I grew up under a lot of stress and worry about what my body would let me do that day. I have turned my natural cooking abilities and overly sensitive palette into a great combination for figuring out what works best for custom flour mixtures and my own gluten free baking line. I have been selling at farmers markets and am currently have my own completely wheat free facility. I been selling Artisan Almond Butter and gluten-free Health oriented Baked goods for years now.

Diagnosed Issues
Celiac (Gluten Ataxia, and Villi Damage dia. 2014, Villi mostly healed on gluten-free diet 2017 confirmed by scope)
Ulcerative Colitis (Dia, 2017), ADHD, Bipolar, Asperger Syndrome (form of autism)
Corn, Whey
Legumes (peanuts, peas, lentils), Lactose, Soy, Yeast
Olives (Seems to have resolved or gone mostly away as of Jan, 2017), Sesame (Gone away as of June 2017)
Enzyme issues with digesting some foods I have to take Pancreatic Enzymes Since mine does not work right, additional food prep steps also
Low Tolerance for sugars and carbs (Glucose spikes and UC Flares)
Gluten Free Bakery
Paleo Based Chef/Food Catering

  1. The elimination diet is a good route, garlic and onions give me issues when my gut is not happy (celiac or ulcerative colitis), high fiber foods and veggies in general were hard with my intestines causing gas and pain....I mean I was fine with smooth almond butter but rough veggies or just chewing...
  2. I did develop a issue with pea protein earlier this year causing some gastro issues. But the nuts/seeds are still in my diet without issues. I shifted away from flax and chia and rarely do I still use Hemp, the headache of getting stuff without issues was a problem. Still have some gerbs whole seeds...
  3. Well Celiac never goes away, it is a genetic autoimmune disease (Gene can be dormant at birth but permanent once active). Sure the damage can heal in a year or so, but if you ever eat gluten the immune system will start attacking your intestines again and normally it is worse then it initially was...
  4. I have corn and dairy allergies among some others, I do get the red sores (mine are a bit more like blood blisters) in my mouth. But yes keeping antihistamines around is daily life. Some stores around here have a liquid version that taste awful but works faster/better. Food allergies are very common...
  5. As mentioned Rye itself contains gluten, best thing I have been able to do was make homemade gluten free bread with gluten free flours and used caraway seeds to help with that flavor. I played with that nearly 5 years ago so I do not recall the recipes.
  6. Yes I misunderstood when you mentioned blood test assuming she had had recent blood work done that still showed high antibody counts, follow up test do need to be done to check if they are going down which seems they have from a follow up comment. The mentioning of the new food intolerance/sensitivity...
  7. Hmm my perspective is really quite skewed, my mother made very little attempt to keep the house gluten free and would cause me to get sick constantly. I still to this day do not trust her with my food 6+ years later. Other random incidents have drilled it into and I only trust food I make myself...
  8. The distention makes me think you could have gotten gluten in somehow, perhaps some contaminated cookware (cutting boards, colanders, scratched pots/pans, cast iron, wooden utensils, etc). Double check everything on this note and consider a elimination diet to see if it is a new food issue or if...
  9. It would have to be ingested normally to trigger a reaction, that said even the dust that you get in your nose and drains into your stomach trapped in the mucus would trigger a reaction to some degree (We have seen this with flour dust in others). I used to work in a machine shop, dust mask did not...
  10. I had issues getting sick drinking coffee/espresso at some coffee shops and I always assumed some form of cross contamination, but drinking at home brewing myself from Christopher bean coffee and some stuff from the local grocery store never caused the issues. Although you might have a food sensitivity...
  11. Yep, not exactly the club you wanted but you got a lifetime membership. You can check the newbie 101 section to cover some basics, and you will have to start reading labels and getting used to the new diet. It is suggested to not eat out and go to a wholefoods only diet for a while to make it easier...
  12. Back when I lived in a shared home I kept all my stuff in a different area and brought my stuff into the kitchen to cook hours before anyone else using my own pans. Others find keeping they personal food items in their own rooms easier to avoid contamination but would also serve to keep it separate...
  13. Found this with some research http://content.ju.st.s3.us-west-1.amazonaws.com/JUST-Allergen-Information.pdf Shared Equipment so would be iffy. I used to use Spero foods scramble it but they discontinued it.
  14. To be honest going carnivore for me was the best diet. I had been paleo for years, stopped eating fruit due to blood sugar issues, then removed vegetables that caused issues with Ulcerative colitis....and finally removed nuts to save money. I am honestly doing better then I can ever recall energy...
  15. Well life has been crazy. I guess the biggest issue has been my truck I got so I could travel more and go to farmers markets with. I took it in with a extended warranty to get the A/C fixed and the engine started having problems. Warranty company told the dealership to take it apart so they could...
