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. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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......
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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.
  7. 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...
  8. I know everyone is different but I found Pea protein always caused bloating and gas when my gut was unhappy. Soy you should probably avoid as a male, it can mess with your hormones. I do well on Egg White protein, and Beef Protein Isolate, along with pumpkin seed protein. I found I did best on a...
  9. Been doing a whole lot of recipe testing, carrot cake muffins took 4 tries to get right, then adjusted that to be zucchini breakfast muffins, just made up a batch of lemon cream cheese cookies (used Miyoko cream cheese to keep it diary free)...well 3 dozen. Going to be deep frying up some catfish...
  10. A bit of a idea came to me, but it seems some of us have better access to many foods in more abundance then others, perhaps we should set up a sharing/shipping post? For instance down here in Texas where I am the stores are well stocked with canned goods, canned fish, canned meats, nuts, the Entire...
  11. Check MyGerbs, they specialize in allergy free snacks and have dried fruits and seeds.
  12. Testing is done via a blood test to check for antibodies for gluten followed by a endoscopy with biopsies to check for damage to the villi in the small intestines. You do need to be eating gluten for 6-8 weeks prior at least 2 slices of bread a day. https://celiac.org/about-celiac-disease/screening...
  13. I have used it on and off for a few years when trying something not labeled, new, or from a shared facility. ...no major signs of exposure. I recently had to make it a daily regiment as I am having to turn to local brands for some foods that are made on shared facilities I do not trust and I found...
  14. I started on Ultima Electrolyte powder, I needed something sugar free and free of artificial sweeteners. Been on it for months, best deals are to wait for 20% off sales from Vitacost or Thrive Market (if a member of the latter)
  15. Been working on this for the past 4 days and got it about perfect. 120g (1 cup) Almond Flour 100g (1/2 cup) Swerve Granular (Erythritiol) 2tbsp Flax Meal 2 tsp Baking Powder 2 tsp Cinnamon Powder 1tsp Ginger Powder 1/4 tsp Nutmeg Powder 1/4 tsp Salt 60g (1/2 cup) Chopped Walnuts...
