Can I Go Gluten-Free Forever?

As children growing up, we were exposed to a wide array of food choices. Among all those food we learned to love and learned to hate, there surfaced our favorites. Then, at some point, you discover that something in those favorites of yours are causing you misery, they made you physically feel terrible after eating them. Sadly, those are the favorites that you love to love. What do you do? Do you cut the cold-turkey?

When it comes to diet, we always come across something that has “Moderation is key” plastered all over it. When you get rid of processed food, you also up the chance of getting rid of gluten. Always see to it that you prepare your own meal, so you know what’s getting into your food. Yes, even with the morning rush, try to squeeze in some time! After all, you don’t want to go back home and spend the entire day with your toilet just because you had a crappy gluten-laden breakfast, do you? You can still have your bread or crackers, given they are made out of grains like amaranth, quinoa, rice or millet.

Whether it be gluten-free or not, organic food, in lieu of processed food, is great news. However, it’s always best if you consult with your doctor first before going for any kind of diet, particularly when you have certain food intolerance that have a very impact on your life.

Gluten stinks and it’s the devil to people who unfortunately have gluten allergies, intolerance, and most particularly those with Celiac disease. If you’re lucky enough to not have such sensitive reactions to certain foods, you can still have gluten. However, I recommend you to steer clear of gluten, even for just a little while, and see the beautiful impact it can make.

Q&A: Gluten-free baking recipes with no flour and ingredients I am likely to have at home?

Question by Mary: Gluten-free baking recipes with no flour and ingredients I am likely to have at home?
My aunt is coming to visit and I have to bake something for her. She’s gluten-free and eats really healthy so can someone please tell me a good recipe that has no flour (we’re out of gluten-free flour), is healthy, is made from ingredients that I am likely to have at home and that tastes nice? Thanks in advance!

Best answer:

Answer by Kate
There are flourless chocolate tortes or salsa, which are the only things i can think of right now. BUT, you can go to allrecipes.com, click on “ingredients” under the search bar at the top and it gives you the option to exclude flour from your recipe search, or you can just search for all recipes that don’t have flour in them.

Does pre-made gluten free bread taste better than home made gluten free bread?

Question by DJ: Does pre-made gluten free bread taste better than home made gluten free bread?
I have recently been diagnosed with Celiac and hate the bread. We bought the pre-made stuff and it tastes horrible, so I am contemplating buying a bread maker and making my own. :/
Thanks 🙂

Answer by Cait

Some pre-made breads are worse than others. That said, toasting bread improves all of them quite a bit.

I don’t know which you’ve tried, but Udi’s is a good one, Schar is great toasted for sandwiches, and the Whole Foods brand one is pretty good too.

I’ve made the homemade stuff. It was a bit more work for me than I was interested in doing, but the bread was soft and delicious. My bread had the problem of falling apart very easily, making it a tasty snack but not the best for sandwiches. It’s worth a shot, though. Lots of different recipes or box mixes for making gluten-free bread.

Q&A: Does anyone know of a home remedy or Natural treatment or cure for celiac disease? ?

Question by Katie B: Does anyone know of a home remedy or Natural treatment or cure for celiac disease? ?
I am not talking about eliminating wheat, rye, oats etc; I am talking about a cure or some remedy close to a cure. I would appreciate any help I can get.

Answer by cjames
As far as I know there is not a “cure” for celiac disease. Avoiding all gluten in your diet is the only effective treatment.

There are a few companies trying to develop a treatment involving using an enzyme to degrade gluten after it’s been ingested — but there is nothing like this currently on the market.

Be very wary of anyone claiming to have a treatment or cure for celiac disease. I’m not saying it won’t happen in the future, but we’re not there yet.

Avoiding gluten in the diet is getting easier and easier with a huge number of products available in markets and many restaurants becoming more celiac friendly.

Good luck.
