Wow a celiac nutritionist that is awesome. She must have a lot of knowledge. I was diagnosed in February of '08. It will be 3 years next month I know it sounds weird but I think I should have some sort of ceremony. Anyone have any suggestions? Could be serious or light hearted I am up for anything.
Hello, Thank you very much for the encouraging words & information. I have a very good Nutritionist whose, Mom has celiac disease. I am learning that the label wording can be tricky. So, I may have to read it 4 times. I've learned to bake my chicken so, that it is brown & juicy. It's delicious. I've tried GF Flour for fried chicken but, not the same. Yes, our options go way beyond rice cakes. Take care of yourself & thanks for helping me. When were you diagnosed?
Welcome to the team! I think it is easy to make a list of gluten free foods that you like in various categories and pick from there to make your menus. I could tell what I eat but you might not like the same things.

My heart goes out to you Ester. When I was diagnosed I was losing weight rapidly too except I didn't look it so no one knew to check me for the disease.
One product that has helped me is Living Without Magazine it is so helpful. Be sure to find a good Nutritionist who is knowledgeable about Celiac. Read your labels twice. Be open minded your options go way beyond rice cakes. Be sure to check with the manufacturer of any medication you are taking. Take care of yourself and I hope this has helped.
Hello Hannah! I was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease 4 Nov 2010. Dr. Stafford felt that I had been misdiagnosed over the years. The disease turned for the worse & at 55 yrs. of age I was at 93 lbs. at 5'2". Dr. Stafford has sent referrals to the nutritionist, lab tests, etc... I am 104 lbs. I'm learning a new life style change. Please,feel free to help me because, I'm learning to really read labels,etc... Thank you very much! Ester
There is a thread in the recipe section I believe for posting what you ate today. I sometimes contribute but forget about it...We could get that going again! The SP menus are really not so great...I didn't like them BEFORE being diagnosed last February. We aren't missing out at all!
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.

SP actually replied back to all the inquiries for a GF list and I don't remember exactly what was said, but basically it was really too difficult to do.
Personally, I do not like the menus as I would never eat 1/2 a banana. I'm really weird about my banana's to boot, have to have a little green still, no brown spots. only eating half would have the other half going brown....eewww
That, and my BF won't touch 1/2 the stuff I have seen in the menus. I have to plan according to him and I just make it GF.
Hello I'm Hannah! Well in February I will have known that I have Celiac for 3 years even though I have had it my whole life. Yes I was one of those people who had to wait a long time to find out what was wrong with them.
I feel passionately about spreading Celiac awareness and supporting any gluten free product or group I can. I still have a lot to learn even after this short while.
I think Spark People should add some gluten free menu ideas and really get the topic out there only through awareness will people learn! If I weren't diagnosed when I was I might not be here today.
On to the light hearted stuff I love meeting new people and having new experiences. Feel free to reply. :)
