kicksmile: As a miserable glutard, I approve of this.

Peekoo: All you gluten-free haters are far more annoying than the gluten-avoiders. It seems just seeing the word "gluten" on a box sets you off, yet I've never heard a word from the people actually avoiding the stuff.

Some of us actually ARE allergic.


So much hate.......If I could swill barrels of beer and choke down loaves of warm developed bread without spewing my intestinal lining and breaking out in horrible blisters I would. Fark you haters, hope you develop a soy allergy so you can eat less than me.

/bitter like this farking salad which I hate so goddamuch.


Your allergies aren't real. When I was a kid, I don't remember so many people having all these allergies, so that means that they didn't exist, and are therefore a figment of your imagination.

EdNortonsTwin: thornhill: plewis: WHAT THE FARK IS IT ABOUT GLUTEN FREE ANYWAY? That whole thing is just stupid for 99.9% of the people in the world without celiac disease (or however the fark you spell it - lazy). It is, quite simply THE ONLY protein you get from a vegan diet that's worth a crap.

I guess people are just dying to appear to be healthy in the eyes of their equally ignorant peers.

I really don't get it. I know people who claim that they suddenly were tired/low energy all the time, saw a doctor, and now act as if they come into contact with flour dust they'll be dead in 5 minutes.

Not to jump to conspiracy theories, but given how my local Whole Foods has an entire aisle dedicated to glutton free food products, there's a lot of money in play here.

I suspect one of my wee ones may have gluten intolerance. She's a picky eater too. Any GF foods that are scrumptious anyone would like to recommend?
We'd be mighty grateful. :-)


The wheat belly cookbook is great, the book is also worth a read: http://www.amazon.com/Wheat-Belly-Cookbook-Recipes-Weight/dp/160961936 6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1357329320&sr=8-2&keywords=wheat+belly

Also, if you are going to take her for the gluten drug test, make sure she eats a lot of breadhand. My blood test came up negative for Gluten sensitivity but the issue was that my parents put me on a GF diet immediately 2 weeks beforehand when I was released from the hospital following my first IBS attack, so no anti-bodies in my bloodstream. Some doctors recommend eating bread with every meal for 3 weeks before the blood test to make sure there's enough antibodies for a positive result.

Also check for corn, tree nut, and dairy allergies (Lactose and caesin).

One of my best friends is starting an elimination diet to try to sort our her many, many allergies. She can no longer eat the following: gluten, dairy, soy, eggs, corn, pork, beef, chicken, beans/lentils, coffee, citrus fruits, nuts, and nightshade vegetables.

At least we're both trying to save money these days by cooking at home.

Oh believe me...she's not happy about it. She's going to be drinking a lot of coconut milk smoothies and eating a lot of fish and salads since that's about what's left on the menu. Ugh...I do not envy her.

The idea behind an elimination food diet is that you go without for a while then slowly add back a food group one at a time to see if it has a reaction or not. It's not supposed to be permanent (unless you're very unlucky and are allergic to all of them).

The paleo diet is silly. To truly lose weight, I guarantee the cambrian diet: you're allowed to eat as much as you want as long as it's trilobites.

NashMcNash: I like bacon just as much as the next guy. I also really like potatoes, but I don't own any merchandise with pictures of potatoes.


It is truly amazing what a public relations coup the Pork Council has pulled off with bacon.

I don't know if there is usally gluten in ice-cream, but there's a sugar-free coconut ice cream at our local gluten-free store that is yummy. I pick up a box of ice cream bars once or twice every summer.

Bonus: tastes good but does not make you feel like you treated your diet like a 5-yr-old treats a piñata.

My friend is on the anti-Candida diet. This means no caffeine, no dairy, no gluten, no sugar, and I think only certain kinds of vinegar. She went from being sick/run down on an almost constant basis to getting sick maybe once a year.

I tried it for a month to see if it'd help with my energy levels. It did, by quite a bit, but it wasn't enough of a difference to change the way I live. Though it did help me switch out some bad habits with better ones (guac or hummas with snacks instead of a heavier dip, brown rice pasta instead of regular, coconut ice cream instead of regular, etc...)

Now she's slowly adding things back in to see what makes the biggest difference for her.

/giving up iced-tea was the hardest
//now I have caffeine-free iced tea

Ant: /amateur baker


Before you bake it, you need to take a razor and score it. For a round loaf like that, make a square on top with the lines overlapping at the ends. It'll look neat. Just score it lightly, don't go too deep.

I make a great pancake but since the waffle iron has come into my life via the local thrift store, I am done making them as they're far too time consuming, but-coconut milk waffles? My waffle iron is so old that the hipsters would find it ironic. (70 years old, yo) and I'm wondering how that would play out. Decisions, decisions. But with enough PAM anything is possible. I may have to give that a spin. Food for thought. I just don't want to spend half a Sunday scrubbing out encrusted coconut waffle batter from my iron on a whim.
