Great post HealthyMad - if you all want to add this feature, click on "edit my sparkpage" and it's at the top in the white box, right hand side, bottom: just click the two boxes. I did it.
I'm trying to give up sugar also - trying to do a modified South Beach for heart health. I've retried giving up sugar for three days now! First the yogurt for my eve. dessert and yesterday, not planning and having Peanut M&Ms when shopping and needing a snack on the go. Then I just ate whatever cause I didn't care. Sometimes I'm so strict I feel so RESTRICTED! I know not all of you are as heavy as me ... LUCKY YOU!
and about bleu cheese: here's a snippet:
Roquefort and Bleu Cheese: Although some bleu cheese/roquefort has been produced from mold on bread in the past and would be contaminated, most bleu cheese and roquefort is now started with chemicals, not bread mold.
How do you figure that one out when at a restaurant? When in doubt, leave it out!
47Lucan - maybe cause you're at the beginning of your gluten-free diet, but "taking off" glutenous things from your food might be considered contamination by some. If you didn't react, that's great, but you may not always be that way. Just fyi, that's what I've read.
KNOWLEDGE = POWER. BODY = TEMPLE. FOOD = MEDICINE. PREVENTION IS THE CURE. YOU ARE WHAT YOU ABSORB! One person's food is another person's poison. __________ Celiac Disease: An autoimmune reaction from eating gluten grains: wheat, rye, barley and contaminated oats=nutrient deficiency=cancer.

They had a checken salad that seemed to be okay, and a spinach salad which I picked off the few little noodles because I didnt know what kind they were...took a chance on the cheese being feta and not bleu...seem okay today, so must have been clean...there was also a nice fruit platter...I am finding that I can just forget about the bread, cake items and walk on by

Buffets are great for us celiacs! Just watch stuff like ribs and wings if they serve them as they are usually coated in flour. I love buffets for the variety of salads, or the ability to build my own salads. I could live off a buffet for it's salad options. I hope you find something you can indulge in.
Good for you 47LUCAN. I find when I go to picnics etc, I take a GF cereal bar, and maybe some fruit or fresh veggies along with me. That way, if all they are serving at the picnic is burgers and hotdogs, I have my own food to munch on. If they have tossed salads etc you can indulge in those, but avoid the pasta ones, as I"m sure you know.
I have a busy weekend ahead of me with food challenges at an all-day meeting today and a picnic/ballgame I'm supposed to attemd with my 85yr old dad tomorrow. Im going to try to figure out and get the tracker set up on my site to have a fresh start beginning on Monday.

I noticed that someone from another forum could do show what she ate. What another great way to be accountable. Of course, I ate wheat (and dairy) this week so I guess I'll be in trouble in this forum ! For the record I am not a celiac, just someone who avoids gluten (and dairy).

I think that's a great idea! I got on this Sparks site for the first time on New Years Eve and started doing the food tracking and then went into this whole one thing after another tests, health, flu, diagnosis with celiac...then I gound out about the celiac team and got so caught up in chatting with all these people with their stories that I have completely fallen off the diet and food tracking etc...I think sharing it would help me stick to it ( and help, like you said, get good ideas from others).
I just learned today from another team that you can now share your food tracker and fitness tracker. You set this up on your spark page. I think that is so neat. I will start to show mine next week, but I have been on a bad sugar binge this week and I am too embarassed.
It would be really neat to view other team members food trackers. Looking at others peoples food tracker would give me and I am sure others some great ideas for meals and snacks .
