I have recently been given the celiac and gluten intolerance diagnosis for all the diaherria and bloating problems I have been having. I am still at the elementary level of learning where gluten is hidden and am still saying you have got to be kidding me, when going through my own pantry. I hope to learn from people in this group. This is why I love spark people I learn more here than I do from anywhere else.

If you haven't got a smile on your face and laughter in your heart, then you are just a sour old fart!

Although I don't eat 100% GF (I don't have Celiac Disease), I do eat almost all GF at home and splurge on gluten about 3x per week, when I go out to eat.

I don't ever purchase the GF products that are available in grocery stores or health food stores. And, I don't have a lot of unique recipes. However, I just choose to eat mostly vegetable and meat meals. I tend to like vegetable salads (that are not the traditional tossed salad kinds of things). And, I often do meat in the crockpot. Chicken breasts, or pork loin that the grocery store slices up for me, etc.

Or, I do quesadilla kinds of things on corn tortillas.

Welcome to the team. You can always make them and freeze the left overs

Dorothy

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.

I sure know what you mean about buy something only to throw it away. I have had to do that way too many times.

Just wanted to say Hi! I am especially interested in unique recipes, u know something other than quinoa. I will have to eat this way for the rest of my life. I have Lupus and Celiacs disease. I am also interested in tasty, unique, little known finds- snacks etc. Since gluten free stuff is so expensive I am not enthusiastic about spending 6 dollars on something and then finding it taste like card board. So any help would be greatly appreciated.
