Good food makes a big difference in wanting to eat gluten-free. Of course--you can have all the fresh fruit, veggies, and lean meat you want but sometimes you don't want that so here are some yummy gluten-free foods.

Pamela's Gluten-Free bread machine mix (an actual gluten-free bread that is not so dry you have to put something on it and yummy too!)

Lunderberg Rice Chips, Sante Fe Barbecue, these were my favorite chips before I found out I had Celiac. They are sweet and salty.

Act II Popcorn balls, maybe not the healthiest but only 100 calories per ball and it feels like a treat.

Simply organic banana bread it's moist and just the right amount of sweetness.

and for special occasions:

Simply organic carrot cake. I had the carrot cake at Thanksgiving. I added lots of carrots and walnuts, then frosted it with cream cheese frosting, it was to die for.

There are lots of alternatives that the gluten-free if you're willing to cook that are really yummy.

Best wishes on your new journey! I need to do the same thing--was told over 20 yrs ago that I was "allergic" to wheat, but I've just kind of cut back here and there, once in a while, you know how it goes! Linda C

Hi all! I am 36 and have quite a few health issues (lupus, fibromyalgia, GERD, arthritis, acne). I have been on numerous meds and am hoping that I will be able to reduce the number of meds by totally changing my diet. A year ago I decided to do a gluten-free trial and I felt much better, but then I was going to be tested for celiac and needed to start eating gluten again - it took me a year to finally go back to gluten free.

So I am on week two. I have gone off my antidepressant and the sleeping pill I took because my antidepressant caused insomnia. I am also attempting to go off my heartburn med. I suspected that it may have had an impact on my weight gain, and a recent study published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology confirmed that. I am working on more "natural" GERD remedies - eating apples so far...

I have two children and am starting a new career as a lactation consultant, so making major changes to my diet is definitely a challenge, but if I feel better and am able to reduce my meds that will keep me motivated.

Amy
