Re: Talk to me about being Gluten free...

Go cold turkey. Trying to do it a little at a time is pointless. I still have wheat cravings a lot even though I know that it will make me sick. I want it anyway.

I buy many dry goods on amazon because it is cheaper. I have also found that it is very hard to go out to eat because people are incompetent and they cross contaminate things. Outback Steak House is great, so is PF Changs. Wendy's is the only fast food I can eat. Soy needs to be tamari.

Most of the GF flours are higher in calories so you can't eat as much. Some things greatly suck. Noodles are a hard one because many of the rice noodles just turn to mush if you want more than aldente. I like the quinoa noodles. We use a lot of rice or potatoes for sides. Family is very frustrating because they want to be helpful, but they generally aren't careful either.

I'm sorry that is a lot of rambling but I think it covers how I feel today. Most days it is not too bad but it is the state fair and I didn't get to eat a thing!
Don't drink the koolaid
