Here's an important question...what's a good brand of mac & cheese? I'll die if I can't have mac & cheese.

There are a few good threads with information in them floating around. I know Ive posted in them, but I dont recal when.
I think this is a great idea. I was hoping your dr. would do this.

And thanks Terra. I hope they check into this thread.

and of course, any Whole Foods or health food store should have a gluten free section.
you don't have to change the kinds of food you eat. (meaning, you can still eat bagels and whatnot, you just have to be specific about the ingredients you're eating).
Allison & Claire both know more about the specific details of what is what. and also, everyone is different. some celiac peoples are fine with eating spouted wheat whereas others may get super sick.
sorry, that wasn't what you were talking about
(oh, PS. i have no allergies that i know of. i've just worked at super anal health food stores on and off for the past 10+ years.)

If I can quit smoking and go vegan at the same time, you can totally go gluten free!

I dunno...I see his frustration, since he's the one who cooks for us. It's not only a change for me, it would be a big change for him. (And of course add in the fact that I suck at following "diets" and will probably binge on a bag of oreos or bread in the closet by the 2nd day. )

i simply do not eat bread anymore, i lost lots of weight when i made that change. there are gluten free breads, so far they all taste like cardboard, really not even worth the calories.
i use corn starch for 'flouring' and thickening. corn flakes (crushed up) for bread crumbs (MUCH tastier than bread)
with a little creativity most recipes can be gluten free, unless you like to bake. wheat flour will always be the best for baking due to the gluten which is what gives wheat flour it's texture.

Bah. This whole thing is strange and I want my damn Dr. to call me back!

The biggest reaction to it is malabsorption of nutrients because they villi in the stomach cant get to the nutrients because the walls of the large intestine are inflamed or covered in mucus making the villi stick to the walls.

Yay to dropping weight, though, since I won't be able to eat the normal shit I love.

Shoot me an email, georgi. I will connect you with my friend Jill, she has tons of sources.

It sucks that I can't have beer ( ) and Twisted Teas, BUT...we found listings of gluten-free beer, and my favorite sweet-tea infused vodka is actually gluten free, and that tastes JUST like Twisted Teas!
This is definitely going to be a big adjustment, but the benefits of it are going to be amazing. Most of my favorite foods that I can't eat anymore I shouldn't eat anymore anyways. I think this is going to be great for me, and us!
We're going to tear up Whole Foods on Sunday.

Tonight we are making some bread!
AND...OMG...I absolutely LOVE my gluten-free beer! We bought 2 kinds for me to sample. Budweiser makes "Redbridge", and then we bought New Grist beer...SO FREAKIN' GOOD! I love them BOTH!!! I'm sad that I can't have twisted teas anymore, BUT...we found a sweet-tea infused vodka...TASTES JUST LIKE THEM IF NOT BETTER!!!
I love this diet already.
Hopefully as I'm detoxing the wheat out of me, my sinuses will clear. I've been dealing with pressure in them for the past week!
Yay for being healthy!!! (Or at least getting on the road to being healthy)
