So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose. Your insecurities they try to alter you.
But you know you're made for more- so don't be afraid to move.
Your faith is all it takes and you can walk on the water to.

Hey, listen to the audio book by Barbara Kingsolver about modern food and the gas economy. I am delighted to hear that I am not alone in the shame game that the industrial agriculture does to our true health,

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;

My favorite two brands are Tinkyada pasta and Pamela's mixes. I buy them off of Amazon in bulk. I feel with pasta and baked goods life is pretty good.

Hi Every Special One of You,
I am brand new and not even blood test diagnosed but the light is down this tunnel for me. I have all the signs plus moreÖ
Here are some of my current favorite books and laugh at the contradictions between opinions.
1) Living Well with Celiac Disease Abundance beyond Wheat and Gluten, By Claudine Crangle, copy right 2002. I mentioned this one at the last meeting. A Celiac over thirty years since weaning and is an active member of the Canadian Celiac Assoc and a notable TV spokes person for detoxification diets. Light hearted humor and worth reading.

And 2) Celiac Disease A hidden Epidemic, by Peter H.R. Green, M.D. and Rory Jones, copy right 2006. They cover inter-actions of many other illnesses overlap with Celiac Disease. Both of these books are available when I am done. They have really verified things for me!

On another note about library books: I have discovered more and different details of other allergies books. I recognize in myself over and above Celiac to complicate my personal journey. Our members may benefit from knowing about these other books for further pain relief and questions to direct to their doctors.

3)Food Allergies The Complete Guide to Understanding and Relieving Your Food Allergies, by William E. Walsh, M.D., copy right 2000. His informal sort of humorous approach to his own practice as an Allergist has explained many things and leaves room for more questions.

4) The Yeast Connection and Women's Health, by deceased William G. Crook, M.D. with His Daughter and her associate for this book Elizabeth B. Crook and Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D. Copy right 2005. They cover the history of the human connection between this yeast and its violent impact on the human body that the 90% of the US doctors today choose not to address. Even this condition is stealing lives in ways we do not act on. Fat, thin, new born, elderly, man, woman, everyone is affected.

Here's a link to the Cecelia's shopping guide - I've only read about it, so thanks for sharing. It looks like it'd be esp helpful for a newbie.

1. My number ONE all time MUST have book is Cecelia's "Gluten Free Grocery Shopping Guide" it is a small size book I carry in my purse and have another copy in my kitchen that I use religiously! It has a huge easy to find and read list of brand name gluten free products.

2. Wheat free Gluten free cookbook for kids and busy adults...simple recipes but because my husband tends to be picky its easier to feed him foods that children like...shhh dont tell him I said that!

3. I DO NOT LIKE the Esential Gluten free Grocery Guide. I found this very user "unfriendly". A waste of money in fact.

My grocery store just introduced a soup line by Pacific Foods. They are all organic. Although it doesn't say they are GF on the cans if you go to their website they are listed as GF. Has anyone else tried these soups? So far I've only eaten the Chicken Fajita one. It was delicious. 300 calories for the can, 150 calories per serving.

Organic Savory Chicken & Wild Rice
Organic Savory White Bean with Smoked Bacon
Organic Spicy Chicken Fajita
Organic Spicy Black Bean with Chicken Sausage
Organic Split Pea with Ham & Swiss Cheese

i'm reading this good book called Body for Life for Women, and i'm going to try to implemnt the principals into my GF lifestyle, since i'm still searching for something that works for me, the book talks about the 4 hormonal stages of a womens life and how that affect our weight and our cravings, also goes into stress issues, and the need for exercise and healthy eating. the eating part is similar to glycemic index, where they want you to make sure that your eating smart protein with your meals or snacks, and talk about limiting your carbs to 5 smart carbs a day. i know that weight is an issue for a lot of us, and for myself switching from high fiber wheat product to rice products has made weight loss a struggle for me since a lot of the gluten free products have more calories and of course less fiber so i'm hungery more often. (when it say 5 smart carbs an example is 2 fruits, 1 starchy veggie, and 2 grain items)they do allow you a snack size hershey bar or something similar when your craving choc. etc. but limit processed foods, process meats, full fat meats,dairy,cheese, and any foods with trans fats. i know we've decussed meal suggesions and the need for protein to help us stay full longer, and am excited to have found a book that addresses womens issues with stress, weight, healthy eating, and exercise, it's easy to understand and makes a lot of sense, just thought it might help some of the rest of you out there that are struggling, trying to figure out how to eat a healthy balance, using her eating plan can easily be done eating GF, and mental thing regarding stress and exercise are great too!

Just a couple of my favorite cookbooks.

"Cooking Free" by Carol Fenster

"Gluten-Free Sugar Free Cooking" by Susan O'Brien

Actually any recipes by Susan O'Brien are winners.

Haven't made a recipe I didn't like and have had many requests for them even from friends who are not GF.

My favorite websites, so far! (Many are blogs with recipes.)
I know several of these have already been posted, but I am sharing them again because they are what I have found so far in my search for healthy living.
The reason I share them is that they have been a huge encouragement to me, either in learning to have a healthy attitude and positive outlook, or the great recipes and resources they have given me!

Just wondering if any of you have bought your gluten free product from www.vitacost.com the prices are cheaper than what i can get in the store, they carry De Boles pastas and Glutino brand, and their shipping is only $4.99 ; i haven't ordered anything of my product on-line yet and just wondering what everyone else does.

I've got to second Tinkyada brand pasta. I've tried many brands and this is the ONLY one that doesn't get disgustingly mushy and actually TASTES like the real thing. emoticon

For baked goods, http://www.kinnikinnick.com/ brand is amazing.

Also, I have a friend of the family that has grandchildren with celiac. She's an amazing baker and has started her own GF bakery biz: http://gfgreatbakes.com/
It's expensive to be shipped, because for it to be fresh and taste - well - real, you have to cook it yourself. But it is SOOOOOO goooood. I have yet to try her Pizza crust though. And honestly, I couldn't tell you the calorie information.

I hope this helps someone.

Trish, Someone in here posted a while back, that when you first go GF, it is really helpful to not eat bread for a couple weeks. It doesn't taste the same. It is not what we are use to. but, if we can wait, it tastes a whole heck of a lot better. I think there is a thread here about GF bread. Good luck.

hi, i'm new to the gluten free diet. i've been eating the high fiber low fat diet for the past 20 some years for my IBS and now they figure it out that's my problem. so saying good bye to my kashi, all bran and high fiber bread is really throughing me a curve. i love to cook and bake,i'm just so overwelmed with the choices for making bread products and don't want to be wasting a lot of money trying thing with expensive ingredient. i'd appreciate any "good" bread receipes that you can pass on to me, and i'm looking forward to getting to know everyone better. thanks trish

I must say that I have only read one actual "book" on being Gluten Free. It was Living Gluten Free For Dummies by Donna Korn. It was incredibly helpful when I first went GF. The diet can be really confusing and it helped me understand what I can and cannot eat.
I have several GF cookbooks, but I can't say that any one of them is all that great. My hubby usually looks online for different recipes and we try them out.

Barb, I do apologize. You may have to subscribe to one of their magazines to access the site and the gluten-free forum. I just realized I do subscribe to their magazine "Cooking for 2" which is one of their magazines. (I had forgotten I do subscribe to this.) If you can't acces it, that is probably why. Again, I'm sorry...that is probably why.

No, it does not require a subscription to the magazine. I don't subscribe. I have signed up to receive emails from taste of home to receive recipes so I have a username and password. You do have to have a password to log into the forum discussions and participate but you don't just to search the website. I just go to www.tasteofhome.com and then click on the tab for health and then diet specific and you can go to the forums. I've had no problem with the site. Hope you can view it cause it is very interesting. I think they just added the gluten free forum within the past week or so.

I'm sorry but I tried the link and all I got was more links. So I can search for gluten free or go to the healthy section but it is only links to more links. Does it need a subscription?

Or more likely this is one of the sites that gets advertising money everytime someone clicks on something. My popup blocker was going crazy.

What a GREAT resource - for newbies and for anyone else who wants to spread their GF wings and try new brands or products.

I recently bought the Gluten Free Grocery Shopping Guide, it's very helpful. It's set up like a dictionary, you just find what type of product you're looking for then it lists all brands & flavors that are gluten free.

the website where you can buy it is

Hi!!

I just wanted to share 2 wonderful gluten-free resources:

"Wheat Free, Worry Free" by Danna Korn (good for the beginner/intermediate gluten-free person, also with great tips and advice for veterans haha)

"The Gluten Free Vegetarian Kitchen" by Donna Klein
(I loved this cookbook because it presents very healthy, very simple and easy dishes right up to more elaborate ones. There is also nutritional info for each recipe)

Hope these books can help simplify the craziness that this gluten-free lifestyle can seem to be! Wishing you all a happy, healthy day!

Thanks for the good info. I was reminded today that I am a "GIG" (gluten intolerant girl). I have been in denial for about 4 years. I have run my health into the ground and I am about where I was ten years ago when I was first diagnosed. Only problem is that I am ten years older. I am glad I found this group on sparkpeople. I need to connect with people who can encourage me to live gluten-free. Thanks for all of the great web sites.

I also came across an interesting website today. www.obesitysanswer.com/

This lady is also from Texas and has some very interesting things to say. Not just about obesity, but about Celiac Sprue, and other non-related topics. I found the one entitled:
Are "Quackbusters" Quacks? to be very interesting.

The book I read after learning that I needed to be GF is "The Gluten Connection." I like the book because it gives a lot of case studies on other diseases and how going GF has helped them to say by by to their conditions. Also leant about other nutrition that may need to say bye to here in the near future. Just a good book.

I just found gluten free pasta that actually tastes like pasta!!! It's a brown rice pasta and it's made by Tinkyada. They make all different kinds, shapes, even tri-color pasta.

Good pasta has been the one thing I've really missed since I went GF a month ago.

TRY IT!! You'll be happy you did :)

WHAT A BIG QUESTION! First thing is to NOT change your diet before your comprehensive celiac panel (I'm assuming that's the test you're talking about, cause I don't understand "alig").

I don't know how you came to the point to get tested, and what you've read, but reading any of these books will be a great start:

1. Living Gluten-Free for Dummies by Danna Korn (amazon link in my FAVORITES post here, but also know you can download this as an ebook as an option after buying the hardcopy. It'd be the hardcopy price + about $2 or $3 for the ebook option.)
2. Gluten-Free Bible by Jax Peters Lowell tinyurl.com/yoovdq
3. Going Against the Grain by Melissa Diane Smith
tinyurl.com/yuoqv7
etc. . .

Go to the websites we've listed in this thread and read read read! You will likely have a lot of questions for your doc after you've read them. I hope this helps.

I found this website and I wanted to get the word out about it. It's a recipe exchange website that is dedicated gluten-free. It also has a foods list where you can list foods you know are gluten-free and rate them. I Think it's a great idea! The site is really well done but it doesn't get much traffic. so here's the link... www.sprued.com/home . go check it out and, if you are active with other gluten-free groups, spread the word.

I'm working on being ready!

I just found out the Skinny Cow ice cream bars are gluten free as well as low cal. Enough said!

http://www.skinnycow.com/products.php

Obviously, the sandwiches and cones are not GF, but look on the above link at the bars. The Fudge, Mini-Fudge, Vanilla, caramel and mint dippers are GF. Now if I could only find them in a local store!

I really like Gluten Free Pantry mixes, as well as the Enjoy life brand. Enjoy Life tries to keep all of the top 10 allergens out of all of their foods. My favorite pasta brand is Tinkyada (sturdy enough to even put in soups!), which also has the closest texture to glutenous pasta. A good cracker is the Mary's Gone Crackers brand, although I still haven't found a cracker that is good for crumbling into soup.
Also, if anyone knows a GF bagel, I would be eternally grateful.

Amazon.com also has GF foods that you can buy by the case in their grocery section--just put Gluten Free as the key word, and it comes up.

YUMMY vegan GF recipes

favorite book: Incredible Edible Gluten-Free Food For Kids, by Sheri L Sanderson. I;ve read through dozens of books, but this has the BEST family-friendly (DS is GF too) recipes ever!

Favorite products: Pamela's Luscious Chocolate Cake Mix, (the BEST chocolate cake ever!) Ancient Harvest Quinoa Flakes, (reminds me of Cream of Wheat... yummy!) and Real Foods' Corn Thins. (you can make a sandwich on them & they don't disintegrate... and at 45 calories for 2 they're pretty much a "freebie" diet-wise!)

Ok, I just found Sans gluten free English muffins and oh boy are they great. I have not had an english muffin since I had to eat wheat before my biopsy. I will have 1/2 a muffin on the weekends with peanut butter. I could not believe how good this was. I rarely eat bread substitutes. I think I had a rice and almond loaf of gluten free bread in my freezer for over a year. I am just leary about carbs (lost 75 pounds going low carb). I always scope out my local grocery store's health food section to see what they have and these were there.

If you are missing an english muffins, these are worth trying.

Make it a great day.

Favorite GF substitutes for bread products: Glutino brand. Their GF pizza, bread sticks, pretzels, melba toast (they call it a "crostini" I think) etc. are among the best bread-product substitutes I've tasted.

I normally don't bother trying to find a bread replacement, but when I really need something along those lines, Glutino brand has been consistently tasty.

It works if you do it. It doesn't if you don't. It's that simple.

My new favorite cookbook is The Gluten-Free Vegetarian Kitchen, Donna Klein. I've made a few things so far and the rest just make my mouth water reading them :) It specifically lists Lacto-ovo, vegan, low carb on the recipes along with the calories, protien, fat, carbs etc...
My old favorite is called Greek Vegetarian Cooking by Alkmini Chaitow. This is not a gluten free cookbook, but lists an item as gluten free under the name of the recipe. I just love greek food, stuffed grape leaves, Moussaka, Garlic potato, etc....so this book is one of my loved cookbooks.
Wheat Free, Gluten Free, Reduced Calorie Cookbook by Connie Sarros is another one of my fav's as it lists all the calories and other info after the recipes. It has a full range of ethnic menus and plenty of vegetarian recipes for me to choose from.

I just found a restarant I hadn't tried before...You have to ask for the gluten-free menu. Cheeseburger in Paradise, they can be found online here: http://www.cheeseburgerinparadise.com/menu
.asp . Before I went back to eating vegetarian, I tried them out. The Caribbean Salad was wonderful! piled high with finely chopped lettuce, a small amt of chicken, almonds, golden raisins, (leave off the fried plantain)and tossed with a lovely curry coconut milk dressing. OMG it was so good! I took half home and discovered no oily residue at all in the box. I'm determined to make my own version of that dressing with low fat coconut milk at home.

Favorite websites:
celiac.com - Great network of resources
glutenfreegirl.blogspot.com/ - A refreshing look at Celiac disease
celiacchicks.typepad.com/ -Great recipies and very funny
graindamage.blogspot.com - my blog so I have to love it but I have a "gluten free" pantry list there for newbies!

Favorite Books:
Gluten Free Living for Dummies- Seriously the best Quick read about this disease out there. It dispels most of the myths you see online about where to find gluten. If you are a newbie its a MUST have!

Products:
-Kraft Products (will clearly label all wheat, barley, oats and Rye) so if you don't see it, its not there!
-Hershey products (same thing if you dont see it its not there)
-Tom Sawyer Flour - pre-mixed 1 for one substitute flour! Its awesome I have made a ton of things with this from Regular cookbooks and they have turned out wonderfully
-Pamelas products and Gluten free Pantry products for when you need quick mixes! They rock
-Cheebe pizza crusts! Just taste awesome!

Favorite Place to eat:
If you are ever in Arizona look up Picazzo Pizza! You can get AMAZING tasting gluten free pizza there! I know I tasted it and the gluteny one and they were both GREAT! (remember I do not have Celiac Disease so it was safe for me to test the gluteny one)

One of my favorite blogs is by the Gluten-Free Girl.
Shauna writes well, and has really been thru the mill when it comes to celiac disease. She walks her talk, and is a breath of fresh air. She has just finished a book about her experiences. On her blog page, there are tons of links for sites that you might be interested in. I have found her collection of links to be most useful.
You can find her here:

Please keep these posts concise. This will be a great resource for those new to gluten-free living; reading personal chit-chat might take away from the intent of the thread, but might also provide great info - just redirect to the General Discussion thread, k?

Once you post, please go back and edit your post if you want to add to it.

If a link becomes inactive, please let the original poster know (if that person becomes inactive, please make a post about it). Thanks everyone!
