  1. Am I losing my mind, or did someone on the message board say that Sweet Baby Ray's is gluten free? I picked up a bottle (the original) while shopping on Friday and one of the ingredients is modified food starch. I thought this was an unsafe ingredient? sign me confused, Lily
  2. Thanks for your replies everyone. I still have problems sometimes from products who say they are gluten free. I guess I need to stay away from processed foods. Thanks! Lily
  3. I bought a baking stone from Pampered Chef. Since purchasing it, I won't use a regular pan anymore. It toasts things evenly, doesn't burn, etc. Also, if you bake something like french fries, it gets nice and crispy because the moisture from freezing it is absorbed into the stone. Cookies are great baked on the stone also. I highly suggest it and am actually planning on buying another, sometimes 1 just isn't enough! Lily
  4. I use Herbamare seasoned salt. It's pretty good and comes highly recommened by my nutritionist. It's made with herbs and sea salt. Good luck! Lily
  5. Jif creamy is gluten-free, Jif Crunch is NOT...........I got horribly sick from it.
  6. Kinnick Kinnick makes a good blueberry muffin.
  7. Hi, Has anyone tried Veganaise brand mayonnaise? It has mustard flour in it and I was reading on the site earlier to avoid mustard powder. Any ideas? Thanks! Lily
  8. For the first 2-4 weeks I went gluten free, I felt worse than ever. My nutritionist says it was my body detoxifying. I was only eating potatos, rice, carrots and apples. But when I finally started healing, boy did it feel good. Nothing actually hurt. Processed foods made me sick right away again when I added them back in.......even though they say gluten free. I hope you feel better soon so you know you're doing the right thing. Blessings, Lily
  9. It happened to me while eating dairy when my gut wasn't healed. I'm finally healing though and it does get better! Lily

    Be careful of Wendy's. I got zapped there a couple weeks ago and still feeling the effects. I had the chili and a baked potato. I know they say their chili is gluten free, but I don't think it was. It seemed a little watery that day (to make it stretch maybe?) so I'm wondering if someone got too much water in it and used flour to thicken it up. Just a guess, but I know my body isn't wrong. Good luck, Lily
  11. All corn chips bother me except for this new one I found. It's called Green Mountan Gringo.......they make a gluten-free salsa too. Lily

    I couldn't find it either so I had to subscribe. It only comes out quarterly. Lily
  13. I saw it and was very pleased to see this. Makes us not feel so alone when others are hearing about it. Thanks QE! Lily
  14. Great idea KayJay!!! Anything Oprah endorses is as good as gold, I shall email them today. Thanks for the great idea! Lily
  15. Kel, I see lots of people recommending chicken, but if you look closely at most grocery store chicken, it is injected with a chicken broth solution (to make it juicy when it cooks) and I won't touch it with a 10 foot pole. I don't trust anyone coating or braising, injecting anything into my food. Are you feeling any better? Lily
  16. I use Oregon Health plant enzymes, recommended by my nutritionist. Lily
  17. Kel, I was still having the same problems as you going gluten free. I started noticing relief when I cut out processed foods as well. Chips, cookies,, ANYTHING processed seems to upset my system. It's hard having to make everything from scratch to put in your mouth when you don't have the energy to do it, but it's getting better. Hang in there. Don't give up. It took me several weeks of eating this way to feel an improvement. Blessings Lily
  18. Just a side note, Bob. It was no miraculous cure , but there was noticeable improvement. I'm still healing and am waiting for that day to actually feel GOOD and I can't wait! Good luck! Lily
  19. Heather, I've had both procedures done and they are painless. The medicine they gave me to put me under put me out like a light and I have no memory of it. I came home and had the best nap I've had in years . I have to have a follow up biopsy in 6-8 months to see if my villi are growing back. I had a barely noticeable sore throat the next day but those were the only side effects I noticed. I wanted to have everything looked at so I could know where I stand. I too was/am scared of cancer and glad they were looking around. Better to know what you're dealing with than to wonder what it could be, don't you think? Here's a big hug . Lily
  20. Knudsen juices are the best, nothing added and taste very good. The apple is my favorite. Lily
  21. Yes, mine is right under my ribcage. When my intestines are more inflamed than usual, it feels like they are pushing on my ribs and my ribs get sore. Soda doesn't seem to agree with me, so I need to take it back out of my diet. One gets tired of being on such a bland diet. Any processed foods I try also make it flare up. Sigh. Hope you feel better soon! Lily
  22. My shiners have gotten much better being gluten free. Lily
  23. I did the elimination diet and that's when I felt the best. My problem is I added some food in too fast because I had to travel and got sick again. It definitely works though and I would highly suggest it to anyone with food sensitivities. Lily
  24. Yes, I get vertigo when poisoned, and get the shakes and my heart races like crazy. Lily
  25. My specialist says that edema is part of Celiac. Blessings, Lily
