Aww, I’m sorry! Gluten shows up in lots of foods too. ):

I’m going to stalk this thread since I may consider removing gluten from my diet. I read a book on the horrors of celiac disease. ):

I have family who must revolve their lives around their allergies to gluten. It seems so tough!

Is it hard staying healthy without a lot of foods w/ gluten?

It does seem tough… one of my friends has resolved to live her life gluten free and she often can’t eat with me and other friends.

I would feel left out. Like going out to eat and stuff. That would suck. But I do think some places are aware of that and have created at least a few entrees for non-glutes.

I eat gluten, but I am Vegan so I already have the whole “I can’t go out and eat with you thing” down to a T

I know there’s almond flour that is apparently really good, I haven’t had it myself though.

I’m not allergic to gluten, and its really unfortunate. I know that there is this brand of foods called envirokids or something that’s organic and gluten-free. It all like…crispy bars and cereals and stuff and its really good.

That’s the problem today, people are developing gluten problems left and right because companies use it as a filler and everyone is over-exposed…

I have a gluten allergy— it’s taken me a little while to get used to it..but it’s not too hard now—-eating out can be tricky, but not impossible!

i recommend quinoa!!! you can get a coffee blender and grind it up… excellent wheat flour replacement and tastes yummy!!!
rice flour works to but my fav is quinoa!!

Hey,

I also have a gluten allergy. I also agree that it takes geting used to but what I’ve had the joy of doing is getting familiar again with the food I consume and purchase. Luckily I have a great gluten free shop where I can buy my breads, flours, and salad dressings.

Advice I have is find out if you have a celiac association nearby. They may be able to provide you with a listing of stores/restaurants etc. Also you can google some gluten free receipes. I went on allrecipes.com and picked up a chocolate chip recipe from there… I also have a banana recipe that I picked up from this website http://www.yadneverknow.com/. If you need more tips just let me know

It is tough, but takes adjusting to :)

My mom is also allergic, she has keliac or something. We bought all these baking recipes for her and there’s a large selection in Europe for her type of allergies.

Enter my giveaway!

Mum does not eat gluten (or dairy). I occasionally join her on this, as it is a refreshing and rather odd way of eating. I like it though, because knocking out gluten can take a lot of unhealthy, nefarious things out of your diet. :)

If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, they conveniently mark all of their products such as “vegan” “gluten free” etc. very handy. Also try health food stores, you should be able to find a lot of clearly labeled options. When traveling abroad last summer I found many restaurants in Europe to be very accommodating of gluten allergies—dairy allergies (which is what I’m allergic to) not so much.

My sister is allergic to gluten and at first was very tough but six years after discovering the allergy and removing gluten/wheat from her diet, she says she honestly doesn’t miss it. She is creative and very flexible when eating out. We recently took a vacation together and I was impressed by how easily she navigated menus to find the items she could eat. Stick with the diet and you will find it is possible to eat with ease and still plenty of great flavor and variety. Best of luck!
