You can also use La Choy but it taste really watered down compared to normal soy sauce.

The San-J Tamari is the closest thing you will find to soy sauce. Make sure to get the gluten free kind. Most health food store carry it along with some big chain supper markets like Safeway but they carry it sporadically. The peolpe at several health food stores have recogmended the Barggs Amino to me but I have not yet used it because I do not know how to compare it in amounts to use.

Tamari is a a rich, naturally fermented soybean sauce containing little or no wheat and thicker than soy sauce. You can find it in the Asian food aisle at the grocery store.

I use San-J's wheat free tamari, lemon juice and crushed garlic as a chicken marinade. It's a gf version of Rosie the Chef's recipe (Oprah's old chef). I have La Choy tamari in the cupboard but haven't used it yet, so I can't tell you how it tastes.

San-J also has a low-sodium wheat free tamari, but it's hard for me to find. The regular tamari, like a lot of soy sauce in general, is really too high in sodium.

I know I'm going to sound silly, but what is tamari? I've never had it but I have heard of it. How would you prepare it?

HappyRacoon: You can get gf tamari from LaChoy or a health food store might have San-J brand wheat free tamari - it tastes as good. Also consider Bragg's Liquid Aminos spray?

I hear you when it comes to driving across the good ole USA. Truck stops aren't known for their fresh foods. I ate Lay's Classic chips and enjoyed it, but really found that they made me too full to eat the healthy stuff when I DID have a chance. Not good either.

After years of eating sunflower seeds by the pound, I haven't wanted any more. GF jerkey is something I should stock up on when I'm at the health food store. I also had Yoplait yogurt when I could get it. Usually I could get it at a grocery store and would/could get other fresh produce anyway. It's a pain to have to accomodate me, but I'm worth it :0).

I have to plan better when traveling on the road. Circumstances were tense and stressful so I wasn't exactly thinking straight. I will remember for the next time, believe me! My gall bladder gave me such issues and my acid reflux made an appearance that I'm not sure to forget. I don't ever want to feel like that again.

I'm actually tapering off of meat because I can't handle it. I am getting the same type of heartburn, so I'm going to work with my fruits and vegetables and soy substitutes. I can still have seafood, so I may keep that. But beef and pork are very much gone. Chicken? I have to see how that acts in my system. I can't believe that my system is so sensitive now!

I have to add, though, that I have not taken soy sauce out of my diet. I'm supposed to. Maybe my wheezing would go totally away if I did. As far as I can tell, it doesn't make me sick. And I really, really like it. I use it.

easy does it

Absolutely. What happens to me starts in my throat. It actually closes up and I can't swallow. Ever since I can remember, I had this feeling, and about my third bite of a sandwich would always take me a loooooong time to get all the way down. It doesn't close up 100%, but I would say about 60%. You can still get the food down, but you can't breathe as well. Can you believe, I was 37 years old before I felt what it was like to eat without that choking feeling? It happened within a few days of taking gluten out of my diet.

Also, like you, my chronic acid stomach, heart burn, indigestions, etc. all disappeared when I took gluten out.

When I'm on the road, I end up eating jerky, sunflower seeds, and even potato chips. The highway convenience stores in France sell produce. I think that could really work here, too. All we would have to do is whenever we see apples at one of these store, BUY THEM.

I can also relate to how it seems so mysterious that some people eat wheat just fine, while other really can't. Wheat is everywhere, so it can become a real social fauxpas to even show up somewhere where the hostess is serving it. I am horrified of being impolite. But I just can't eat wheat. Then, because they can't imagine a healthy diet without it, they might start to ask a lot of questions that feel more like an interrogation. I hate when it turns out to be the topic of conversation because everybody is curious, so you're explaining and explaining while everyone is eating their crumpets and scones. I feel like a zoo animal!

Oh well. I'm healthy now. I was very sick 6 months ago!!! Thank god. And thanks to all those who figured out these cool foods that make us glufrees strong.

First, I wanted to welcome all members to this group!
I am sorry that I have been absent as of late, but I've been out of town for a bit -- which leads me to the reason for this post:

I went out of town and discovered how difficult it is to eat fresh while driving along a highway in states with smaller towns. You have to travel 50 miles into town from the highway. Because of the "inconvenience" and the fact that we were in a hurry to keep moving, I ate wherever we stopped. Consequently, I have been paying for it for the past four days.

I'm actually quite surprised that as good as I felt for the six weeks of eating no gluten, I felt twice as worse just in eating gluten over a matter of four days. Unbelievable!

So I am working to get myself back into shape. I think I was actually in a bit of denial, telling myself that I COULD eat it but I chose not to. Wen I eat gluten, I instantly get heartburn and gallbladder irritation. I also get what feels like a lump in the center of my belly. It's horrible.

I can't eat gluten. I have an intolerance to it.

Now that I've said that, I am getting myself back on track. I'm going to stick with fresh fruits and vegetables for the next few days and then slowly incorporate other foods. (I could only drink for the past two days, so I had yogurt, supplement shakes, juice, soup broth...)

I'll be back to wonderful in no time!

Is anyone else affected so strongly when they eat gluten? I know that a lot of people have been diagnosed with Celiac's and I can not say that I have been diagnosed. But my doctor had a hunch that I do have an intolerance so we did an elimination diet and discovered that it was true. It's amazing to me how something can affect me so adversely when it doesn't do anything to other people.

Anyway, done with this long ramble. Hope you all are doing well!
