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.
