    My daughter, who is gluten intolerant, had a bad experience with lip gloss a few weeks ago. It had wheat germ wax as an ingredient. Needless to say we got rid of it! I’d love to find out more information on what to do when you do get gluten by accident. Are there ways to help the body deal with it easier?

    I linked up a very old post with an update from today. It’s about how I went gluten-free and still had some issues so I took my diet one step further. Just thought if anyone wasn’t getting full results on a gluten-free diet it might be of interest to them. Lots of gluten-free recipes on my site too.

    I don’t think I’m ready to go gluten free, but I definitely have a number of friends who rave about how much better they feel after doing so. I think I’m definitely interested in trying some recipes that are delicious but just happen to be gluten free.

    Amy,
    I thought linking up our Elimination Diet post might be helpful. There are a number of linked gluten-free, dairy-free, etc. recipes there. Please don’t enter me in the drawing for the coconut flour, I already have so much! :)

    So I just found your blog through Kitchen Stewardship and read your story. I am pretty sure I could have written it myself complete with Weight Watcher Points. About a year and a half ago I switched to a completely whole foods, almost Vegan diet… we are loving it. But my husband has lost like 40 lbs and I am struggling keeping my 15 off. I have all the food cravings too. Given how we eat there is no reason why I should still be overweight, I am 5’2″ and struggle to maintain 150.
    So after reading your story I want to try it for 3 months and see what kind of a difference it makes. I don’t think I will have to change too much… just eliminating whole wheat flour.
    Where can I find a list of the ingredients you do use? Like what flours you use (for what), what (if any) sweeteners you use, and how do you eat out (we rarely do anyways), what about feeding children is there anything I should know.
    I am also excited to be trying out your almond milk recipe.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Great post! Just one thing that you said that is not always true from my experience. Eating gluten free means eating more whole foods. Fortunately or unfortunately, however you look at it,there are now tons of processed gluten free foods available. A lot of folks that make the switch to living gluten free just go from their original processed foods to the gluten free versions instead of making it themselves from whole foods. Those raw ingredients that are naturally gluten free are the ones that do make you feel better. I totally agree with you there. Our bodies really do need those types of gluten free foods.

    Thank you for sharing so many options for gluten free foods that are not processed.

    For everyone taking that step to live gluten free, do yourself a favor and stick as closely as you can to real food!

    @Diane-The W.H.O.L.E. Gang, Diane, you nailed it! I know so many people who want to go gluten-free and their first inclination is to start trying every processed gluten-free product they can find. First I have to agree with make it yourself. And second, the focus on whole real food made a huge difference for me. Our bodies need nutrition when recovering from illness.

    Thank you so much for the information. I am not gluten free at this time but I am researching it. I was diagnosed with IBS in 2001 (because they couldn’t figure out anything else that was wrong) but some of the trigger foods don’t bother me. I have been wondering for a while now if it is the gluten that causes my stomach/digestive problems. Thank you for the resources.

    Hi,
    I posted a recipe for easy yummy rice porridge. Please pray for my daughter- your story reminds me of her. She is 11, 5’1″ and 165 pounds. She started gaining weight excessively, slowly, starting when she was 8 but this year she has gained 30+ lbs. I am 5’2″ & 110 lbs. & my husband is also slim. We keep real, healthy food in the house- but she always wants to eat & will get junk food whenever/however she can. We try to help her but it has to come from her will also.

    Amy, this is such a great post! I can see that many are finding it helpful and I hope many more will find their way here. Thanks so much for the mentions of my blog and specific posts. I linked up my recipe from today that is healthier with Slightly Indulgent in mind. But after I saw your request for gluten-free info as well as recipes, I linked up my post on 50+ meals that are gfe. I really believe that being able to eat gluten free is all about seeing it in a different way and finally realizing that it is easily doable.

    I do want to add that malabsorption and inflammation in some folks can mean that they are overweight, but their bodies are literally starving despite the weight because they are no absorbing the vitamins and minerals that they should be. While the gf diet is not necessarily a weight loss diet, weight loss can be the case for some people. Likewise, underweight people who are not absorbing vitamins/minerals can start absorbing them and gain needed weight. In fact, most (if not all) symptoms/illnesses are related to the malabsorption issues caused by gluten; e.g., depression–B, osteoporosis–calcium, D, K, anemia–iron. Much more to be said, of course, but thanks so much for this post! I’d love to try some coconut flour. :-)

    I know I don’t count for the giveaway, but this week I linked to my 2 years of being gluten-free post. It was supposed to be exciting, but the week before, I got glutened, so I shared my experiences with that. I wouldn’t normally say this, but the comments are really worth reading. Many others shared their stories about getting glutened and how their body reacts to the fateful protein. It’s a tough thing, but it can be nice to know that there are others out there, even if you wouldn’t want anyone to experience it.

    Thanks for the mention as well =D.

    Thanks Karina for including my recipe for banana bread on your website. For March, I’ve posted a recipe for oatmeal cranberry muffins. I adapted these muffins from Karina’s gluten-free-goddess cookie recipe by replacing 1.5 cups of brown sugar with 1/3 cup of agave and 2/3 cup apple juice. I made a few other adaptions which can be found on my new to the blogging world blog at http://cleanfoodkitchen.blogspot.com/. My goal for the blog is to mainly showcase gluten-free, sugar-free, and/or dairy free recipes.

    Cheers! Cindy

    I have been having digestive problems, and I heard about Elizabeth Hasselbeck’s G-Free Diet. Ever since reading it, I’ve decided that even if gluten intolerance/celiac disease is not my diagnosis, I can still feel a lot better with gluten-free foods! It’s more fun to eat different things, though, anyway!

    Again, if your website is fantastic and therapy for anxiety really engages tthe visitor,
    you will need to buy a list that beats your minimum requirement.
    Just look for the most suitable choice and youre truly rready to deliver
    your company and brand to the viewers for a brief
    moment. For businesses being able to get printing and mailing costs, how much your product
    sells for, and what to beware of.
