Hi TrishF and welcome to this site
I bought a cookbook called "Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook". It is all done with a slow cooker. There are alot of good recipes that are not real high in carbs and you can substitute what you can have, for instance the flour just use your gf flour mix and soups just use the gf soups etc.
Believe me I did not like to cook and now I am actually enjoying it. This a first for me as if I want to enjoy something I have to learn to cook so I can eat. My hubby is not gf but he eats what I fix as he is not fussy. Thank goodness for that.
I hope that this has been of some help to you.

Hi! I also signed up for SP a while ago, and then promptly forgot all about it! I recently got an email about the new book, and the email alone was so motivating, I just had to come back! I think I have seriously tried everything out there, diet-wise. I was never skinny, but when I was dx'ed with celiac 8 years ago, I put on 40 pounds in 2 years. I'm the only fat celiac I know! I hope, no wait...PRAY that this will be the program that works. I really can't take it anymore...
I joined SP a couple of yrs ago, then just stopped using the site. Recently, I started trying to eliminate gluten from my diet, because of symptoms I was having, and have felt much better since.
Now, I'm concentrating on losing the wgt that has crept up on me again. This time, I'd like it to be a permanent change in my lifestyle.
I'd love to hear from anyone who feels the urge to write, wants a dieting buddy, or has awesome GF recipes to share. One of the things I haven't found yet are any pre-made GF breads that I actually enjoy eating, and that don't cost $6 or more per loaf...

I'm new to sprkpeople but not to the challenges of trying to live gluten free. I was diagnosed with celiac disease about five years ago after a long, long struggle to find out what was wrong with me.
I am luck enough to have several vendors at my local farmers market that make really good, tasty GF breads and baked goods and the restuarants here are getting better and better at providing altrnative for those who are GF. I can even go out for pizza and beer!

Hi, I am new to Sparkpeople and having a hard time with the tracking diet because I am gluten free and have been for almost 4 years. I eat Quinoa for breakfast almost every morning and I can't figure out how even to enter it in the breakfast diet. How can I enter my own diet, which works well in keeping me gluten free and has kept me healthy even now when I can't exercise because of my pending knee replacement? To anyone who is new to living gluten free . . . life gets better every day. Everytime I am tempted by the smell of pizza or fresh bread, I just remember all of the joint pain and stomach problems and the desire passes. I hope this site will help me to loose the weight I keep gaining due to sugar issues and to finally keep it off. Regards

Hi All, I've been gluten free since January of 2009 and Dairy free since June, 2009. It's October and I'm still trying to figure this all out.
I've always been told that you are what you eat, but never that you feel as good as you eat. After 40 years I'm hoping to feel better....

Many years ago, I was told that I was wheat sensitive, which I managed to ignore until recently. After being sick for most of the past year, symptoms started appearing, and finally the bell rang!
Since giving up gluten (1st day was 7/14/09), I have been healthy, and lost many of my previous issues.
I am not 'living without'. For me, it's all about what I can have.
I write about being gluten free for Examiner.com. Check out some of my recipes there, all are gluten free. I am Examiner #21375. If anyone else would like to write for Examiner, drop me a note...happy to refer you in!

Hi I've been gluten free for 2 years now for arthritis and gastro issues. I'm new to SparkPeople and I am losing the weight I've gained from too many GF muffins and not enough exercise :) I find being GF pretty easy, but I'm always keen for new recipes and ideas! Gillian

I'm Allison, fairly new to this, haven't gotten the results back yet from my doctor, but i have also cut out gluten, moms idea, im anemic,lactose intolerant and gluten/wheat. I just recently started a blog, check it out, and i would love to keep talking and discuss different recipes and stuff!
Hi. My name is Lynn Benefield. I have been sick for years now and to many different docs. No one was able to figure out what was wrong, but I have had 8 surgeries (all abdominal). I decided on my own to cut out gluten and it's made ALL the difference in the world!!!! I am getting my energy back, my stomach does not hurt anymore and I have my LIFE back! :) I want to share ideas, stories, recipes etc. and connect with others who have the same problems as me. :) God Bless you all! Thanks for joining!
