My advice to you is to eat well, fresh fruits and veggies, lean meats and as high in fibre as you can find that is GF. Cook one meal at dinner etc so the whole family is eating the same thing. It makes it so much harder if you are cooking two meals at all times; one for them and one for you. The only thing I cook seperate is pasta. I'd rather my family have whole grain, or multigrain pastas then the rice or corn ones. Keep it simple.

One of my first needs was new recipes. Due to resources on the internet, I'm developed a core set of recipes especially for bakery goods.
Check out the recipes at Celiac.com
Also try www.recipezaar.com - search for 'gluten free'
Do the same for www.allrecipes.com

It has so much information in the archives however there is every range of opinion on anything related to Celiac or Gluten Intolerance.
I don't recommend the DIGEST format as you can't save individual emails that you might want to keep. I'd rather get them all and delete those I don't want. The digest has them all in email, 90% of which you'll probably not want to keep.

This is quite a change - just went through it myself. Sassibrix has some great sites for references.

Here's one of my faves for recipes:

I also like for reference: http://jccglutenfree.googlepages.com
and
www.glutensensitivity.net

Google for a support group in your area: celiac + "city name" -- getting in touch with others can really help you find local resources and ideas. Knowing you have support is crucial!

If you have any questions, we all have opinions (and our stories to diagnosis are probably all different)!

Keep taking care. Peace.

I sympathize with you at this time. I had a really hard time figuring out what I can eat without gluten. There are numerous places to go for information. I have a listing of places I have used over the years. They include many resource groups for people with the same problem. I am not sure what problems you are having finding proper nutrition, but there are so many better grains out there than wheat, barley, oats, etc. I find I use alot of quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, and rice. And I shop at the local health food store for GF foods that we would not ordinarily think contain gluten.

Here are a few resources:

I've only included a few of the resources online for gluten-free foods. There are dozens out there and the local health food markets carry many gluten-free products now. I have even seen Gf products in the specialty section of the local grocery stores now. I am sure there are others here who have good resources online.

Hi! I just found out 4 days ago from a doctor that I was gluten intolerant, and was put on a very strict diet of things I can and cannot eat. The list of 'NOs' is very long... emoticon It's been really hard to organize healthy meals and well balanced meals and get all the recommended daily amounts of all the vitamins, minerals, etc. I could really use some sage advice.

Thanks!

Lara
