That's great that you are working with a naturopath. We have had to kiss a lot of medical and holistic frogs but we think we finally found a good dietician and homeopath to work with. The leaky gut seems to be the issue that has caused the others, so hopefully once that is fixed, the rest will heal too.

DJ2SEW4HEALTH I am anaphylactic so I react differently to grains, but I have also found that all grains seem to bother me to different degrees and I have basically cut all of them out leaving a rather boring diet. Living like this isn't really good for a person long term so I am seeing a naturopath to try and get my diet back on track. Her plan is to work up to non glutinous grains slowly with the main hope being that I may be able to have some quinoa and hemp seed in the future because these two are the most un-allergenic.

Smiling just makes everyones day better :)

Trader Joes also has a good GF waffle if you have one near you. I tried Quenoa flakes which is somewhat like oatmeal. It wasn't bad. This whole GF thing is new to us. My son needs to be GF but he also has to stay clear of milk products, eggs and sugar (amoung other things), so we are having to get very creative. We make a lot of muffins with the GF baking mix. I add in garbanzo bean flour for added nutrition and protein. A great cookbook is "Gluten Free/Sugar Free Cooking" by Susan O'Brien. "The Gluten Free Gourmet" by Bette Hagman is another good one.

I am starting to have trouble with other types of grains and now I just eat only veggies, fruits and protein. I don't like waking up in pain from eating any grains so I am staying away from them for awhile until my system settles down.

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.

Ians makes a gluten free french toast found in the freezer section of some local HFS's if you don't have time to make it yourself from scratch... I like the frozen Food for Life Brown Rice bread. But I can only eat it toasted....

I haven't tried the Van's yet, but Wild Oats Buckwheat Blueberry GF waffles are AWESOME--there aren't even words for how good they are. I've heard Whole Foods has a large GF bread line that's very popular--you might be able to find substitutes there, too.

Ezekiel's bread is the best I've found so far (it's not fabulous, but it's edible, which is better than the white rice bread I tried first); it's sturdy enough I bet you could make French Toast with it the good old-fashioned way.

When I first went gf, I liked Van's wheat/gluten free waffles (Wal-Mart and Target have them in my town) topped with Yoplait yogurt or real maple syrup. I also liked Bob's Red Mill Mighty Hot Cereal (also at Target, not sure about Wal-Mart; or it was the other way around, can't remember).

Not sure of your circumstances, but if you can tolerate oatmeal, there are gf versions at health food stores (just google gf oatmeal).

I also liked to put brown rice with lots of water in a slow cooker for the night: add what you want of chopped green apples (won't turn to mush), butter, cinammon, raisins, walnuts, goji berries or cranberries, etc. You awaken to such a nice smell.

There's a bread I like called "Garbo" sunflower or Sport found in the freezer section of my health food store. The Sport is a darker color. Sunflower would be good made as French toast I think - haven't tried it. The health food freezer section might also have gf versions of bagels and other biscuits. Look for Kinninnick brand.

I have been doing really well staying gluten free for about a month. I have appreciated the help from the members of this group. So I am going to ask the group for any suggestions on my newest issue. Breakfast has always been my favorite meal. I enjoyed french toast, oatmeal and bagels. I am wondering what others have replaced these foods with?

If I can dream it I can do it.
