For me it only sucks when I feel I have to eat grains and sweets at all. Grains are in breads, cakes, cookies and cereals. There's also usually sugar in these things too. If we can work on getting most all that stuff out of our diets then we won't be worrying so much about calories. Even for non-gluten intolerant people this is our biggest hurdle in weight loss--grains and sugar. I am not gluten intolerant but I feel lots healthier when I cut it down severely and stick to veggies, legumes, eggs, meat, nuts. It's not easy though; the craving for those starchy carbs and refined carbs is hard to resist.

I've always been amazed at how much junky stuff celiac folks are willing to eat just to avoid gluten. It reminds me of vegans who eat a lot of refined, processed junky foods just to avoid animal products. I just don't understand that, though I know for celiacs it's a much more serious food issue; life threatening even for some.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I've found that, too. That's the part that sucks the most.

This bakery is dedicated gluten free. So there's no chance of cross-contamination from gluten processing.

I know that for the goodies, e.g., cupcakes and cookies, you could buy these and serve to anyone. I think so, anyway. The bread I got is definitely denser than sandwich bread. It is delicious and I tried it toasted this evening.

Sounds good; I'll have to check it out next time I'm down town.

At lunch, I had the most delicious bread. It's the teff-based bread from New Cascadia gluten-free bakery. I found nutrient info for Bob's Red Mill gf bread and used that, but I figure someone here probably has more accurate info than that.

Thanks! emoticon
