I have been GF since July 21st of this year. It is awesome. I do not eat out, I'd rather eat at home! Just because the foods in restaurants are GF doesn't mean they are calorie free or portion controlled! I have only eaten out once in the month and whatever days since I started, and I was scared! But Hardee's has an awesome low cal hamburg wrapped in lettuce with tomato! Went online to see the calories and nearly fainted! LOL

Have a GF Spark Day! :)

I think I got really dry skin after I made myself zucchini bread with gluten free cafe baking mix. Yummy!
Disappointed with gluten free pizza at lost dog cafe in mclean va. Flavir not used to.
Very happy with senza gluten free pizza at bella italia in Annapolis md. Delicious & a nicely textured crust!
I saw the website for the crust. 5eregon might want to buy some to have on hand.

You are correct that matzoh is not gluten free. It is made with wheat. I think all the Manischewitz products are made with matzoh flour and thus are not gluten free. As I am not Jewish, I just look for the special Passover section this time of year and read the labels. In past years, I have gotten some wonderful cookies and cakes that I packaged into portions and froze.

What brands have you found of Passover things which are GF? As far as I can tell, matzoh is not. I am always looking for new things to try.
The Kinnikinnick graham crumbs made an awesome crust mixed with almond mea.
Also, if you have a Costco membership, or know someone who does, the Rudy's multigrain bread is 2 loaves for $7. My friend who had a reaction to buckwheat did not have it in this bread. There is a 6 ounce greater amount per loaf than Udi's. Smells like bread, feels like bread, tastes like bread!

Just a reminder that this is a great time to stock up on gluten-free cakes and cookies. Many grocery stores have supplies of Kosher for Passover baked goods. A number of these are gluten free. For example, I tried an Osem Pound Cake today. Quite tasty. I cut it into servings and will freeze some of them for the months to come.

Of course, you can get recipes for these baked goods and bake them yourself, but sometimes it is just handy to be able to buy a prepared food.

Haven't tried the graham/marshmallow, but haven't liked any of that brand I've tried. Glutino lemon wafers are totally yummy! I like the Pamela's mini chocolate chip cookies-way less sweet.
I'd rather have some very, very dark chocolate to much of the prefab stuff.

Just tried Mi-Del Gluten-Free S'Mores cookies today. The box says "Chocolate Graham Cookies with Marshmallows". Well each little package has these little hard chocolate disks with little hard white things in them. I assume those are the marshmallows. What a disappointment. I would have been better to waste the calories on a Hershey bar.

Could you have used any products with things like dextrose, malt, dextrin (may have MSG), autolyzed yeast, plant protein, hydrolized protein, just to name a few?
Did you use a personal care product which may have had something? I ask, because I had a miserable night. I fixed a fast food, as I'm not feeling great. I didn't see any wheat words that I knew. It had food starch, but I've read that now labels have to say if it's wheat. Well, there was something in there which made me ill. Still feeling pretty bad, and the headache is back. Oh, caramel coloring is another one of the questionables.
It's because we've played so fast and loose with our food that more and more people are getting autoimmune conditions and allergies and intolerances. Also, in an article I read this evening, it said that most of the stuff used to treat or "modify" food starch comes from China, and we know how careful they are there!
It's not always possible to control everything we eat, much as we try. For example, at Trader Joe's, there is a risotto in the frozen foods. Now, I'm a pretty dab hand at making it, but thought that it'd be nice to have for an emergency. Good thing we checked ingredients! There it was: wheat. Now, why in the world would you need to put wheat in a rice dish? Hmmmmm.
Hope you feel better. BTW, what we had was the Schwann's fire roasted vegetables, which is a fave of the guys. The things I added I know are GF. So much for trying to cut some corners.

We went to my best friend's house for Christmas Eve visiting and her daughter's birthday. They made a GF gingerbread using the Namaste spice cake. It was so moist, and everyone loved it; not just the GF group!
They also found a recipe for roll-out cookies, and gave us a few. Haven't tried them yet, but they look like real cookies!

She offers a free one when you sign up for her e-mail (worthwhile).

- I also bought her e-book...
but check out her free recipe - I use "kefir" to start it up - not water kefir - so it makes the process much easier if you do that! If you buy kefir - Lifeways is a good brand..

I did this because I only got asthma after I went gluten free and I started to suspected the xanthan gum might be playing a role...

I'm not strictly against xanthan gum - but I don't eat it daily or even weekly any more...

If you get her free recipe - I will share some of my own tips

A visiting friend who knows of my GF lifestyle told me he had seen Quaker GF oats in his supermarket in the St. Louis area. Has anyone seen these? Also, I have some GF oat groats, and they don't seem to cook very well. My friend has the flakes, and says they're great. Thanks.

I was thumbing through the Gluten Free Living magazine Friday night and saw an add for the Gluten Free Grocery Shopping Guide at http://www.ceceliasmarketplace.com/gluten-

It tells you which regular store brands are actually gluten free. That sounds really helpful. Does anyone have this book?

Thank you. With not being able to have the corn and nuts it does limit you a lot more. And I can see how it would be much harder to be accommodated for. But they should still be accepting and take it as a sign that they care for you by making the accommodations.

Thanks for understanding, Mark. My husband drove in, and I'm flying in. I'm bringing as many snacks as I can, but without corn and nuts, I'm somewhat more limited. I did get a few things, including some bread from Udi's bakery out of Colorado. Our Vitamin Cottage carries a few of there things. I'm not allowed to do any cooking there, so we are arranging to have most meals elsewhere. Ug!
I found a bread made with tapioca, brown rice and teff. Haven't tried it yet, but it sounded way better than plain rice bread.
It's so much easier to be the one who entertains than the one being entertained. I'm not as sensitive as some of you, for which I thank God. You all are the best. Each time you share your GF story, especially with humor, you tell the cause forward. Blessings

Panera Bread also has some salads and fruit cups that are safe but they are really limited. It is hard when someone is so set in there ways that they are not welling to make adjustments to accommodate you. I have put up with that for 8 years with my in-laws. My MIL just can not understand why I need to be gluten free and thinks a little will not hurt.

I traveled in July and my companions insisted on Panera for breakfast one morning. Nothing I could eat at all. At some locations for lunch you can get soup and an apple instead of the usual piece of bread, but remember, the person who will handle that apple has been handling bread all day and isn't going to change gloves for you.

If they like fast food, try to steer them toward Wendy's instead of McDs. You can at least get chili and a baked potato.

What I do is bring a big Ziploc of rice crackers and a jar of peanut butter, or GF breakfast bars, or I buy cheese and fruit en route. Then you can go eat with them, but eat your own safe foods.

Hope this helps. Traveling is a pain.

Well, I'm trying to remain gluten free. I'm travelling for the first time since adopting this lifestyle. My in-laws love Panera bakery and sandwich shop for dinner. They are old, and don't like to vary things. Any suggestions? I went to the website, but, I am unable to access it. When one uses a screen reader, as I do, because of vision impairment (total), flash websites can't be read. They are images, and the screen reader can't decode them.
My in-laws will be offended if I don't eat with them, and won't like my providing my own stuff. I'm taking lots of other stuff for breakfast, and will buy some bread from Whole Foods when I get there. But, we have several dinner engagements with folks. (In-laws are wonderful, but the most difficult.) Thanks!

WOW! Glad I checked out this older string! I've been looking forever for a site with gluten free menu plans! And the Amino Acid thing is like a huge light bulb. I sometimes take amino acids as part pf my vitamin plan (I'm bad about actually taking them regularly) and when I do I find I am less 'hungry' for junk food.
A favorite resource when I was first starting out GF was clanthompson.com which has a celiac section. I subscribed my first year or two to their databases of gluten free foods and things, it was well worth it until I had found a pool of familiar staples and understood better how to tell what was ok or not. There is a lot of free info as well and info is targeted separately for US and Canadian brand lines.
