Hi Mzz K - If you'd like a handy carry-around reference, I recommend a quick read: Living Gluten-Free for Dummies by Danna Korn. Also, this link might serve your needs: www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
Welcome to our world :)
KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB!
One person's food is another person's poison.
Celiac Disease: An autoimmune reaction from eating gluten grains: wheat, rye, barley and contaminated oats=nutrient deficiency=cancer. Have 1 of 300 symptoms? bit.ly/cdsymptoms
CD stories: bit.ly/cdstories
My hope is that you have a nutritionist who is knowledgeable of CD and how to eat. So many will tell you can eat spelt and that is a big no! Go to www.celiac.com and look at the links on the bottom of the first page. Click on the 'safe and forbidden foods list' link and read what is safe and not. On Delphi Forums celiac community they have a downloadable food list by brand name that is constantly being updated. They have great conversations too!
Stay in touch. Don't think you will be perfect at first, but work into getting it right. I've been at it for 6 plus years now and I still get it wrong occasionally.

For a really good rice pasta to replace wheat pastas try Bionature. It is the best we have found. www.clanthompson.com

welcome to gluten-sensitive people! try your library for Betty Hagman's series of Gluten Free Gourmet books. The bakes bread one is great and includes pizza. Check all labels for "modified food starch" (wheat most likely) and other hidden gluten. San-J is the only soy sauce you can buy. Nature's Path is your only corn flake brand. Certain corn tortillas have wheat (!). Tinkyada is the best rice pasta I have found... I do see others out there I haven't tried though... of course asian rice noodles are different; Tinkyada emulates wheat pasta. Rice noodles you soak warm and then fry or boil less than a minute. Making Pad Thai a lot lately...
I just found out and let me tell you...the information that's out there on what you can and cannot eat is a jumbled mess. Can't wait to see the nutritionist next week!! If anyone has any info that is correct could ya pass it on!! It is muchly appreciated! Thanks.
Life is for having a great time....and so I will!!!
