Be sure to let the world know when you find it.

I have no problems with anything I eat. Wheat isn't my favorite grain but that's just my taste. I must admit, I do like quinoa when I've been working hard and have expended a lot of energy. I find it very satisfying and filling.

Gluten free by recommendation (intollerance, but not celliac)

Anybody still around?

Hi,

Is that recommendation from a friend or your doctor? How long have you known of your gluten intolerance?

I don't know if any coeliac-disease people or gluten intolerant people are still around. My daughter is one of the former.

It's from a doctor. I do NOT have celiac, but he suspected some sort of intolerance. I'm restricting lots of foods at the moment, and yet because it's so overwhelming, I've been cheating too. (sorry, it's really hard following multiple diets at once) Gluten has been the one I most try to avoid though, as I can seem to see what it does to me.

Ok, I gotcha. Well, I think I read someone saying I can post and will just see from there. Thanks for checking in!

I know you don't have coeliac disease. I imagine it's bad enough having an intolerance to gluten. Have you been given a list of what you can eat and what you can't eat?

What other diet are you following?

short answer, yes. I'd have to dig out all my paperwork, but the main ones are glutenfree and this anti-inflammatory diet by Dr. Weil. Dr. Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Food Pyramid - DrWeil.com
and just for quick viewing sake https://celiac.org/live-gluten-free/.../food-options/
I'm also to cut sugar, so fruits are to be limited with no oranges, and dairy. Fats? Well, I'm not supposed to eat potato chips. Deepfried stuff is common sense, but I've only ever had this occasionally anyway.

I was doing pretty well for a few months, but it was getting boring. As of today, I have gotten pretty lazy, except that I still have my "approved" breakfast everyday and I mostly eat ok foods, but I need more vegetables and I've become addicted to some gluten-free snacks, but not sugarfree or low sodium. bah! It's very difficult when the approved foods are far and few between or I don't know how to cook them or keep them fresh (veggies)!

Hi, sorry I am coming in here a little late but I have been cooking and baking gluten-free for over 12 years now. I have promised some recipes so mcrx but have been under the weather the last while. I just got a horrid toothache and am going to medicate myself to sleep so tomorrow I will see what I can come up with!
