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
Peanuts, Cellulose Gel, Lactose, Soy, Yeast
Olives (Seems to have resolved or gone mostly away as of Jan, 2017), Sesame (Gone away as of June 2017, still slight Nausea)
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. If you want to try it, I have had a lot of luck with keto based diets just upped my protein when bulking to gain more mass then cut it back to cut. Mix with daily cardio, 5-10miles a day, 30-60mins weight training daily (different groups on rotation), and when cutting times come I do intermittent...
  2. Just looked at the product you mentioned, while it does appear to be gluten and dairy free, I assume your getting gastric distress from it still? The large amount of carbs in it could be causing issues. I myself had to give them up a while back due to glucose issues and found my gut was much happier...
  3. That is the name of a company, I have been using their Beef Protein Powder for a few months without issues, Frankly it is the cheapest I could find at $28 a kilo on Amazon.
  4. I would say give up the whey based gainers, look for Beef Protein by Julian Bakery, or Bulk Supplements, and Egg White Protein By Julian Bakery. I also add in cheaper Collagen proteins from various brands that are gluten free. IF you find a good gives you issues the best thing is to remove it from...
  5. I have used Pomona for years, it is also useful for making jams that are sugar free, but they state on their website if you scroll down that it is gluten free. https://pomonapectin.com/ https://www.amazon.com/s?k=pomona+pectin&hvadid=78683895281724&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&...
  6. Yeah, been dealing with that for years, mine is due to nerve damage from gluten ataxia, nerve test a few years led to this being found out. It has slightly improved the last few years but I still take porcine pancreas enzymes with meals along with extra enzymes in ratio to my macros. But I also...
  7. I had constipation most of my life, the Diarrhea did not start happening til I went gluten free for years then a later exposure. You should keep eating gluten for now and see about getting the actual blood screening done to see if you have the disease, and a follow up endoscope to confirm. https...
  8. Celiac Disease you immune system reacts to gluten in Barley, Wheat, and Rye. Natural Fruits, Nuts, and Seeds would be fine, if processed in a gluten free facility. Dairy can be a issue at first, as the disease causes you immune system to destroy the villi in your intestines, these villi also produce...
  9. Sounds like my ataxia on the mild side, have to be a bit more vigilant when you have ataxia reactions, it can cause damage that takes much longer to heal. The tingling will wean off til it becomes less noticeable, mine normally hit in waves and the weakness was random. Worse times it would leave...
  10. The enzymes to break down dairy are produced from the tips of the villi in the intestines which get destroyed with celiac disease. The damaged villi also the cause for undernourishment despite eating food, as they are what allow you to absorb the nutrients from your food. Some people get wasting...
  11. I went with a bunch of scrambled eggs, with shredded bacon, and mashed up some avocados with them for breakfast. Lunch was weird, I had some product from my store called SPERO Scramblit Egg replacement that was nearing best buy date so I used it with some real eggs and minced leftover steaks......
  12. Meaning to reply much earlier...but issues with the site made it unable to be accessed for over 4 days. Topped with IRL issue. Seems most of thing topics were covered very well, but I wanted to point out that sometimes food intolerance and sensitives come and go and wax and wane even with a build...
  13. The blood test checks for antibodies, if your not eating gluten then your body does not go on the attack and produce the antibodies. A colonoscopy would not show any celiac damage as it is for the large intestine, a endoscopy is used going down the throat, through the stomach and checks damage...
  14. Flax Eggs are what I use in most baked goods when I get a Egg free request. You mix 1tbsp ground flax with 2 and a half tbsp water and let it congeal a bit, this works wonders in muffins, brownies, and cookies, less so in soft cakes and breads.
  15. Stick to the Eggs, veggies, fruit. in most of these, double check meats in theses, a few are safe but others have additives. I have been paleo based for years about keto with my macros though. https://www.thrivelife.com/all-products/gluten-free.html https://www.augasonfarms.com/Food-Storage/Gluten...
