  1. I might be able to do that on the weekends or if I know the plans ahead of time. Sometimes plans materialize spontaneously, or on a weekday, which is rough. I'm usually hungry after work, but I definitely don't have time to go home, eat, and come back out to the city. I think this is just going to...
  2. Thanks! I've actually tried them before but I'm not a huge fan of zoodles and other vegetable noodle dishes. I wish you could buy their ingredients separately because their sauces were really good. I love soba noodles and Banza pasta so I will probably rely on those a lot (though some soba noodles...
  3. That's complicated because I don't really know my extended family. My parents immigrated here in the 70s so my cousins and aunts stayed behind. My uncle passed away either last year or the year before of some kind of liver issue, but he wasn't related to me (he was my mom's sister's husband). My...
  4. Oh poor thing I'm sorry to hear that. Yes, I know I could definitely have it much worse. I know people who have multiple food allergies and diseases and are practically housebound because they can't eat any food they don't make themselves. I've known people on immunosuppressants that have...
  5. You are so right. I suffer from a lot of anxiety and tend to always jump to the worst case scenario, especially when it comes to matters of health. Good thing I have a therapy appointment this Friday cuz I need it. I am trying to remind myself that 2/3 is still a majority, and it's good that complete...
  6. Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, but no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac (which I realize does not mean they don't have it), and yet I know it's strongly hereditary. My grandparents all lived to old age and my parents are approaching their 70s. Obviously my...
  7. I just read that only 8% of celiacs recover normal intestinal function after 16 months, and only 2/3 after 5 YEARS (despite reportedly feeling better relatively quickly). That leaves 1/3 of celiacs who never fully recover. This includes those who are maintaining a strict gluten-free diet. Those who...
  8. I know it seems that way but I don't ever really cook anything very complicated so just getting that nailed down is going to be difficult for me, especially given what a terrible planner I am. I do not have a lot of free time and I have no help. It's going to be a huge adjustment. I figured I'd try...
  9. That is extreme, but I bet you have healed well. Thank you <3
  10. What a wonderful reference. Thank you! Glad to hear you've been able to make it work for you despite being so restricted. I've never been much of a prepper or planner when it comes to food. I tend to do things very spontaneously and just go by what I feel like eating that day because I get bored...
  11. BTW just wanted to throw out a general THANK YOU to everyone who is responding. I appreciate all the support, even if I'm being a bit of a sourpuss right now
  12. We have TONS of gluten-free options where I live (seriously, almost everywhere has a gluten-free menu), but the CC issue is very concerning to me. Most of these menus seem to be cashing in on the gullibility of fad dieters more than considering people with actual diseases/intolerances. Often the...
  13. When I say I don't cook, I just mean I tend to be very minimal when I do, not that I only eat frozen dinners or anything. It's going to be a lot harder and more tedious to find convenience items like sauces and condiments now, and when I do find ones that are usable, they may not taste great. I used...
  14. How do you not get hungry just sitting there and watching everyone else eat and smelling their food while you go without? I work long hours and have a long commute home so I can't just make something at home to eat before I go. Idk, maybe this isn't the right place to ask this question but it sounds...
  15. Thank you Wow, that is a lot to get hit with, especially as a baker I'm sorry. Is the diabetes related or unrelated? Were you able to put your baking skills to make some good gluten-free/sugar free treats? Much of the problem is that most of the good times I've had with friends and family...
