Rudi's bread is a bit larger in size and seems a bit fluffier and the multigrain seemed to have more texure and fiber. I loved whole grain breads before I was diagnosed with celiac and this is the closest I've come to experiencing a bread with similar texture. I guess you can tell I liked it! Hope that help's you Cindy. Smiles Barb

I still haven't found Udi bread - I must not be paying attention. Will go to Sunflower one of these days again and see what I can find.

Hey I tried the new bread from Rudi's Bakery this week. Rudi's Multigrain Gluten Free Bread was in the freezer section of my health food store in Washington State. It is dairy and gluten free and delicious. I made myself a real sandwich and I didn't have to bake the bread and it was good! Rudi's Bakery has a web site so you can check if the bread will be available in your area and they have coupons too. I also found out that Costco is suppose to start selling this bread. There are 3 kinds: Multigrain, Original and Cinnamon Raisin. Try some if you get a chance...so yummy and only 90 calories a slice. Smiles Barb

I love almond milk. It has such a pleasing flavor. I just had the Silk chocolate almond and it is so rich and creamy, it makes me think i am really doing something naughty, but i am always careful to portion control that and not pour a giant glass. I don't have any problems so far with dairy, but i watch it close, cause my mom has lactose intolerance. Glad to hear you are doing so good! the Happy dance is a dance we can all tap our toes to.

I use Vanilla Almond Milk on my oatmeal, to drink and to make hot chocolate and Plain almond milk in all of my cooking. I buy the brand Almond Breeze which is available in the 1/2 gallons in the refrigerator section at my store and in non refrigerated cartons in our cereal aisles. I eat coconut milk ice cream. Lactose intolerance and allergy seem to result in the same thing...find some other form of dairy. Smiles Barb

Thanks Barb -- well that leaves me out of dairy anyway. I do use coconut milk for milk substitute in cooking so I'm okay there. A friend in Wisconsin said her husband just brought home and actual 1/2 gallon of coconut milk. I think that will be great not to have to have cans. But, haven't heard of it here in AZ yet.

People keep talking about some of the gf foods being high in calories, but I find the calorie count and other things fit right into my quota. Even my doc checked some things out for me and said I'm okay. So I won't have to worry about that as long as I keep reading labels and calculate everything.

Hi Echo- I found this information on line for you at the Allergy site. "Milk from mammals including cows, goats, sheep and humans contain lactose. This means that goats’ milk and sheep milk aren’t suitable alternatives to cows’ milk for people who are intolerant to lactose."
If you are just allergic to cow's milk substituting goat and sheep milk work for some people but if you have a lactose intolerance this substitution would not work for you. Hope this info helps. Smiles Barb

Glad to hear that you are feeling better BEE. It is a process to learn what helps your body work best. I have to stay away from dairy, corn and peanuts as well as gluten and then all is well. It is SO nice to feel better!

Glad you are feeling better BEE! It is a learning process and all of us go through it! I had a bit of a head start as my Mom was Celiac also before she passed away in 2004. A lot has changed since then so i still had to learn a lot, plus we had different symptoms. Still, I was already somewhat familiar with the NO NO lists...glad you are working it out!

Thanks for your post. The Gluten-Free life has been a process for me. I have been on and off "good" for five years. I re-committed about 6 months ago to being totally gluten-free and feel great. But also I've been taking B-12 and D supplements (common Celiac deficiencies). I have learned more from this Spark Team than anywhere else. So you've picked a great place to be! It takes a while to learn what you can and can't eat. Best of luck to you!

I do not have sheep cheese in my town but if it is as good as Goat cheese. I would so love that. Yummie.

No trips to the powder room all night or after math of eating supper it all. Slept like a Baby till 8 this morning. Happy shoes me is dancing.
So seeing finally after so many days to make a week and weekend gone . I am improving.
