Hi Becca - we have two new people at our local celiac support meetings who are wheat farmer's wives - yes, it's so ironic isn't it?!

Good luck with your ventures. Keep healthy!

Welcome Becca! Its nice to see someone new in here, its been pretty quiet since I joined recently. I am not Celiac but rather anaphylactic to grains but I can follow some of the Celiac recipes and ways of eating. I can surely related to feeling better without wheat/grains in my diet!

You comment about your dad being a wheat farmer is funny and I can relate to it, I grew up in the country surrounded by wheat fields and farms...now I can't even be around during harvest!

Smiling just makes everyones day better :)

Hi and welcome Becca. There are great websites to find recipes for gluten free foods. If you also increase your veggies and some fruits that will help with your food calories being in the area it needs to be.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Hello all,

I have recently re-joined Spark and have 50 lbs. to lose. The reason for my joining this group is two-fold. My father was diagnosed and has had celiac for years. Being part of this group may help me cook for him better, as I do occasionally. Also, I believe I may be an asymptomatic (or undiagnosed) celiac, as it's genetic. I feel MUCH better not ingesting gluten; my osteoarthritis gets better, my gas/bloating subsides and I don't feel mentally "fuzzy" when I cut out the wheat.

Having celiac in my family is sort of ironic, as my father was a wheat farmer here in Eastern WA before he retired!

So I'm looking forward to chatting with some other celiacs and getting tips & recipes while losing weight!

Thanks! And have a gluten-free day!

Becca
