  1. Ennis_TX I'll find your post on this. If I understand right a food allergy or sensitivity is to a protein in that food. So if I am sensitive to strawberry proteins it shouldn't really affect me with one kind of strawberry but not another. Why am I okay with some strawberries but react violently...
  2. Well I officially hit the "underweight" status of BMI charts a few days ago. I have BMI of 18.5 I think. I am 5 foot 7 1/2 inches and weighed 119 the other day. I'm pretty weirded out about it & trying not to be totally scared but it IS scary to me. I weighed up to 130-135 pounds until 6 months...
  3. I've already had a very bad experience with strawberry picking before I knew I had celiac disease. It was a few years ago, I was helping at a school with the children picking strawberries at some farm around London. The strawberries were on beds of straw. (I only just found out that is why they are...
  4. The black walnut site looks pretty interesting cyclinglady. I've never heard of something where people from different areas collect wild nuts and turn them in to a central place. If I'm reading that correctly. Thanks kareng, I may try that sometime.
  5. That's such a great idea. I'm all for buying locally. I only thought I might find a nut tree in a forest or something, lol. Like you do. But I'll search online for local farms that might have some, or ask at the local markets. That sounds kind of fun & could lead to finding other local stuff...
  6. Hi Ennis_TX I just looked around that site and already saw several things I want to try. I really want to try hemp seeds. I'm gonna try ordering a few things on there. I really need something to snack on and add to salads and stuff. Thanks so much.
  7. Thanks cyclinglady, that makes me feel more confident to give it a try. I really need more fat in my diet and nuts would really help right now. I'm going to try this. Yeah, there may be days when I don't want to work so hard to get nuts out of the shells! I really hope my body lets me eat some...
  8. Hi GFinDC, Thanks very much for the advice. I guess I'm a little paranoid and want to rinse the whole world off. But yeah that makes sense that the inside is protected from the elements of nature so it's probably safe from gluten too! I'll look at nuts.com. And hahaha! Gluten-free nuts! I've...
  9. Hi Has anyone had good luck with nuts in shells? Would they still need to be certified gluten free to be okay? What if I rinsed them with shells on and again with shells off? Also, what if they came from a local tree, could they still be contaminated just by the environment? Or if you know any...
