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.

Having eye problems is not fun and putting drops that burn in is terrible but have to do it. Hope they find out what is going on with your eyes and that it is something simple to fix.

Is that what is happening. Food is jumping into my body. LOL I knew something was going on. Guess I need to put locks on all the doors. I feel like I have to take it hour by hour many days.

Hope all is doing good. My days are very full since I started taking care of a 6 week old. I had hoped she would sleep a lot, but that isn't being the case. This is only a short time job.

Just mostly stopping in to say HI.

Good night, Donna

I have a 'Spa Day' tomorrow thanks to one of my best buds...Then off to Mum's on Sunday for a quick overnight visit courtesy of my darling daughter...This is a much needed break for me in this very wintery week of cloudy weather and damp doldrums...What are your plans for the 3-day weekend?...And if you had a choice of a fantasy get-away what would it be this time of year?

Just checking in to see what has been going on. I have been out of town for the last 8 days. Good to be back in my own bread and in control of what is in my food.

Have a great day.

I just googled a comparison of nutrients in various oils, and found a list that showed that butter has fewer calories, less total fat, and less saturated fat than coconut oil. I know Dr. Oz says that using butter is ok, and better than using many margarines. That's his opinion, anyway. I use olive oil a great deal, though, even in baking.
The big thing to worry about is Partially hydrogenated vegetable oils or Hydrolized Oils. Some Coconut oils are often sold in Hydrolized form. That is not healthy.
Try to find non-Hydrolized oils.
Canola is considered a healthy oil. I think most work well for moistness, but a cake's moistness is often connected to other factors.
Have you tried oil free baking? I've baked fat/oil-free cakes and brownies with applesauce or pureed pumpkin or sweet potatoes, and gotten a really moist product, especially if you add just a tiny bit of honey, because honey is hygroscopic, meaning it attracts water, and so it will retain a bit more moisture in the cake. This does work very well with mixes, too, and gluten free cakes and brownies.

For those who have been baking for a while, does it really make a difference what oil you use ie canola or coconut for moisture content in cakes, muffins etc?

I just ordered some GF pasta and a few other GF products from Vitacost.com. Anyone else ever order from them? Some items were on sale and were cheaper than I can get them locally, and if one orders enough then the shipping is free, so I saved a bit of money.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful February and a great Friday...has been so quiet on this post...how is the gluten free eating going for everyone? I enjoyed making gluten free pie crust in January and made a pie for my brother, my husband and my daughter and her boyfriend...they were all apple pies and delicious. I also made gluten free sandwich rolls and have enjoyed having Turkey sandwiches this month. Hope you are eating well in 2012 and enjoying some new recipes...Smiles Barb

Cookbooks
1000 Gluten Free Recipes by Carol Fenster
Blackbird Bakery Gluten Free by Karen Morgan

I also love Pamela's mixes...Pamela's baking mix for pancakes, muffins and waffles
and Pamela's bread mix...I use the "sweet" recipe and make rolls to make sandwiches on...I add gluten free oats to this to add fiber.
I use almond breeze almond milk in all of my cooking to substitute for milk and it works great cup for cup.
I buy Costco Pecorino Romano Cheese that is made with sheeps milk to substitute for dairy cheese and manchego sheep chesse as well from Whole Foods.

My favorite bread in RUDI's Multigrain Gluten free bread that is in the freezer section at my natural market. Taste closest to multigrain regular bread that I have found.

Hope this information helps you....MISSLILSTAMPER...any other foods you are missing just let someone know and we can share a recipe or what product we buy at the store. Smiles Barb

Hi Everyone!

I'm new to this team :) I recently found out that I have a slight allergy to wheat .... this makes me very sad :( I do love bread. and I know there are other alternatives....but it's a hard adjustment....

do you guys have any good recipes to share?? it also needs to be dairy free too....

Next time ask for the manager and then they will make sure that you don't get any gluten on your plate.

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.

My husband and I went to the theatre for a matinee this afternoon(Hair - it was great!). Afterwards we went to an Irish restaurant we have been to many times.
The waitress who greeted us sat and talked to us for a few minutes. We were talking about the sandwiches and I told her how good I thought their reubens were. I just order them without the bread. I need to be gluten free. But, when it came time to order, we ended up with a different waitress. I ordered a great cajun chicken kabob meal with a tossed salad...no croutons. The salad came out with this phenomenal piece of bread on the side.
Sometimes you need to tell everyone, I guess.

Cinch by the inch....hard by the yard!

Just make sure that you check the sugar content too, some of them are loaded with sugar

Not sure if this is true at all of its stores, but I just discovered that our local Ocean State Job Lots (Maine) carries a lot of GF foods, especially cereals. I was so happy to find that out! Also our local grocery stores have GF foods in their 50% off bin quite often, so I take advantage of that! Have a good weekend everyone. - Betsy

I find that most things have gluten or wheat in them. The best thing to do in a restaraunt is eat the veggies and fruit, unadulterated (no sauces) on the meat and go natural. Just like you would for the SP nutrition plan.

My son is intollerant to gluten and wheat. No allergy but definately proven intollerant. We typically don't go out to eat, but when we do, we keep the foods clean and natural.

There are books and pamphlets out there that will help you decide how to eat out. celiacs.com has a ton of information on it and books for sale. Also check your local library.

Sour cream and gluten. It seems like it is getting harder. What is going on with things that I thought were GF and now it isn't always true. I have never asked about sour cream having gluten in a restaurant.

I thought the new requirements for listing allergens on all food items would take care of things showing up we didn't know about...my friend said that when she was traveling she could not have sour cream on her bake potato at one restaurant because she asked the waitress to have the chief check to make sure she got no gluten...both the chief and my friend were very surprised that the brand of sour cream the restaurant used had wheat in it...I guess we can never assume...

I stay away from them because that might be made from corn and that caused my tongue to swell and I don't want that.

Dorothy the thing that bugs me is not telling what the modified food starch is. I do notice a few do put it in parenthesis. I think we need to push companies to trying using a starch that is GF if that is the only thing that is keeping it from being GF.

I just wish that they would put all the ingredients on the labels so that we could decide if we want it and that includes GMO"s too. I know that if it had GMO's in it I would not buy them.

Just when you think something is safe, we get reminded we have to look at the labels. The problem is when you look at the light butter there isn't a thing I see that would say, I have gluten.

Mark, glad you are getting some walks in.

I was listening to GMA this morning and Elizabeth H was doing GF cooking. She mentioned that some butter is not GF. So, I did a search and it seems that the Land O Lakes light sticks are not GF. Thrill, I use it all the time. I called them and she said it "may" have gluten at times. To be honest I don't know if I will quit.

Hi All. Making my monthly post. lol.

My Dad was in the Hospital the last two weeks of December, I am at his house now helping to take care of him and Mom. He is still week but doing better every day. My Sister brought me her and is supposed to pick me up on Sunday and take me back home. I was going to drive here myself but my car broke down. It was a good thing that my sister had business in Southern California and did not mind dropping me off even though it made her go 3 hours out of her way.

My goal for 2012 is to try and get back on spark and to keep me first as far as health issues go.

It has been awhile. I have had several deaths in my family which didn't help my depression and my mom is requiring more help/care.

I have missed you all so much.

You are right HealthyBarb1 that you do need to change what you are doing because your body gets used to what you are doing and then it slows down the weight loss or even stops it because it knows what is coming and does not expend energy to do it. So you need to change or even do burst of sudden fast work outs for about 30seconds to a minute and then slow down until you catch your breath..

What kind of goals do you all have for 2012....I am trying to break a plateau and plan to do some change up stuff and hope to decrease my prednisone some more this year so that should help me on my next step of weight loss. I love to ride my exercise bike but I think my body needs a change to get the scale moving again. Barb
