  1. Does anyone out there have any good slow cooker recipes? I got one a couple months ago and love it but I found trouble tryting to find quick prep times combined with easy recipes. I tried the paleo sites but they always have a strange ingriediant or take a certain skill set to cook it abd have it...
  2. So I hear a lot of back and forth on whether it's okay to drink coffee or not. There was even a back and forth from 2007 on this site. Now things are different than they were back then so I decided to put this out there. IS COFFEE SAFE FOR SOMEONE WITH celiac disease? I would love to have some...
  3. I forgot about Oreo cereal! Going out and getting some tomorrow! I'm not doing this to tease anyone. I've been there and still might have celiac disease. For whatever reason I react to tomato sauce, garlic, and onions. Still avoiding those foods right now. I had my SIBO breath test today and will...
  4. I'm a big soda lover too. Most soda is gluten-free to 20ppm. I personally drink too much Dr. Pepper. Why give up every thing you like? Personally, I tried the Zevia and hated it. It's no regular soda. I agree with Ennis though, flavored sparkling water is a nice alternative and doesn't cost that...
  5. I'm on the same page as a few of you. I've had a couple different kinds of bread now. Sorry Ennis but there are no Bennigans up here in Ky. I have eaten there when I was stationed at Ft. Hood though and that sandwich sounds awesome. White Castle does sound great but whether you have celiac disease...
  6. I'm 1 week into the gluten challenge to put this diagnosis to bed. All of us were able to eat real food at one time or another and I'm sure you can remember the taste as I do. What would you eat if you were doing the gluten challenge? Real Pizza Deserts Cookies Hawiian rolls ...
  7. Turns out the reason a biopsy wasn't taken the 1st scope 6 years ago is that everything looked normal. I'm still moving along with this gluten challenge and so far nothing has changed. The symptoms of these "flare ups" are still the same whether gluten is there or not. I actually improved slightly...
  8. In my last post I told the story about how I had almost every possible test done and there was no sign of Celaic Disease that they could find. In fact, my diagnosis stems from a single blood test taken over six years ago. One test. I told this story in which some people said that I should ignore...
  9. All biopsies are normal and negative for celiac disease. No damage was seen. This current GI doctor ran every test except for the breath test which is scheduled for June 15th. As far as the original doctor, he is only going off the 1st blood test I got, and this was the only positive test. No biopsy...
  10. So I was diagnosed about 6 years ago and have been putting up with the same symptoms ever since. I was very surprised when the GI doctor was going over a battery of tests I had done when she came to the conclusion that I never had celiac disease. I had to ask her to repeat that several times. All...
  11. So anyway, I've been having some problems with my diet. A doctor told me to go on a low FODMAP diet. I didn't know what in the hell it was til I looked it up and thought to my self there was no way I was going to restrict my diet anymore than it already is. Well I've had enough to where I'm going...
  12. Well I had the whole work up this week. Scopes on both ends appear to be normal but many biopsies were done and they're not going to be in for about a week. There were a couple of ulcers but that's it for the most part. They took a lot of blood and also are running the genetic test for celiac disease...
  13. I've been on a strict gluten-free diet now for years since I was given the diagnosis of celiac disease. This was a diagnosis I questioned from the start. My blood tests came back positive, the highest numbers the GI doctor had ever seen. He told me that I had to go on a gluten-free diet and get a...
  14. Has anyone ever tried any of the Food for Life products advertised on this site? I know that not all their products are gluten-free but they have many options that are. https://www.foodforlife.com/about_us/gluten-free-difference
  15. I had the same issue. I was eating at least one a day and then started with the gas and bloating about 6 months ago. It's the alcohol. There's a lot of protein bars out there that will cause the same issue. Some of the bars even warn you of this reaction. I can't remember the brand but that's how...
