Hello all! I just wanted to drop in and introduce myself. I'm more of a lurker, but I might chime in from time to time. I was just diagnosed with a host of food allergies in addition to a high likelihood (waiting for the GI appt in 3 months!) celiac disease. Even if it comes back negative for the disease portion, I will probably be gluten free because I feel so much better without it in my life.
I'm also allergic to all nuts (except coconut, oddly), eggs, wheat, citrus, dairy (intolerance), and some fish. So, even the substitutes often used for gluten free cooking, like almond flour, are off limits for me. Even the allergist told me to just eat veggies, meat, and fruit for a year or so to see how I feel. I'm afraid I won't get enough nutrition doing that, though, so if anybody has any thoughts, I'd LOVE them!
I WILL make it this time!! I promise myself that I will!
