Hi Mary Fran
I cant imagine not having a cookie in 3 years. You have some strong willpower. Look forward to getting to know you!

Welcome to the team! Check around on other threads for recipes. There are cookies that you can make that are gluten/wheat free but usually it is better to stick to natural foods - protein and plain fruit and vegetables for a while until you can tell what is causing problems for you. There is still plenty to eat!

I just found this group today, and am hoping to learn lots!

I am allergic to wheat (the hives, the red puffy face and the (mildly) swollen throat). I live with my parents while I go back to school. My mom has IBS and can't have gluten, dairy or soy and my dad was diagnosed with an allergy disorder a couple of weeks ago, at age 55, that causes scarring in the esophagus and his biggest reaction at the allergist? Wheat. He also can't have oats, pork or beans, so eating out just got really interesting.

At least now I know there aren't hidden cookies in the house that want me to eat them. Because, really, I haven't had a good cookie in 3 years and I am starting to miss them terribly.

Anyways, I look forward to learning all of your tricks and maybe sharing a few of mine!

"Do not worry; eat three square meals a day; say your prayers; be courteous to your creditors; keep your digestion good; exercise; go slow and easy. Maybe there are other things your special case requires to make you happy, but my friend, these I reckon will give you a good lift." - Abraham Lincoln

I'm on my way.
