Thank you so much Jessica

Hi there Jess,

You have been so helpful. I certainly will try doing gravy that way. Since I don't have any meat juices to use, I will try a stock cube or tamari or something and thicken it.

I decided to go back on my yeast free diet that I tried 16 yrs ago and was on for 2 yrs to see if I could stop the bloating, etc I have suffered for most of my life. Tried so many diets, Doc said it was just IBS and live with it. But after a few days without wheat, the symptoms have gone away. Had a touch of them back last night, but realised that I had put a dry soup mix in the dinner and thought, it must be the wheat. Since I have been having wheat free, yeast free bread, I assume it is not a gluten problem.

From what I am reading, food makes a bit difference to our quality of life.

My husband was very fortunate to get a warning sign and to live. I am thankful for that everyday.

I will look up those sites you sent me as I have time.

I really appreciate your help so much.

Hi Sharon,

I'm so glad that you liked the links. I can totally get where you are coming from, one of the medical conditions I eat for is IBS, it (the IBS) has improved dramatically as a result of diet (and peppermint, and one prescription med - MP if you want more info in this direction). There is tons!!! You can do for IBS in terms of diet, and elemintating wheat is one thing that some people have luck with...have you been tested for Celiac's disease just to rule that possiblity out?

From what I am reading, food makes a bit difference to our quality of life.
Absolutely. I've gone years now with out things like alcohol (not even for cooking), coffee, carbonated drinks, etc and I feel sooooo much better because of it!

I wish you both so much luck and success as you introduce a new way of looking at food and eating into your life! Believe me it is well worth the effort.

Have you experienced any problems with rice flour? I absolutely love it for homemade breads, biscuits and crackers

Diana-Kate, welcome to our family!
I can almost surely guarantee you'll clean your monitor weekly from spitting your beverage onto it from the silly jokes folks put on this board!
We're all so glad you are here!!!

Sharon, welcome to you too!
I'm terribly sorry to hear about your husband's condition, but it is a wonderful thing that you found our (and now your) home here. Everyone is so helpful (as you can see by Jess' example!) and those who have any input will most certainly be there when you need them. I suggest you copy/paste your original inquiry into it's own posting so more folks will see it.

How many meats eaters do you need to change a lightbulb?
None--they'd rather not see how their food is made.
