I was recently tested negative for a celiac blood test, yet an allergist applied skin testing and it appears that I'm allergic to rye. What does this mean? Should I avoid all breads, crackers, and pastas in general? I haven't eaten breads, crackers, or pasta in two years. I wonder if the celiac blood test could be a false negative, since I haven't eaten breads in a few years? [more inside]
I have recently seen some benefits from dropping animal proteins from My diet. I recently spent some time in Asia where wheat gluten based mock meats Are pretty common. I became a fan but wanted some feedback from you geniuses who may Have some history with this. Is wheat protein a healthier alternative?. As an aside, sorta, Have any of you made your own? Have you developed any time saving techniques? I await you wise words, hive
So I've started baking, and in doing so I've realized that I have a problem with the gluten in fresh-baked bread. (But not commercial stuff from the store--go figure.) So I want to start baking gluten-free bread. [more inside]
As a newly diagnosed Celiac person with few cooking skills and on a budget I'm interested in sites that create GF menu plannings for a week or even a month. If it comes with shopping lists and cooking instructions for the food challenged so much the better. Does this exist? [more inside]

I seem to have acute anxiety lately, which is causing a cognition deficit for me. My memory is quite poor and lax these days - I'm not certain if it is due to my vegan diet, or my ongoing intensive anxiety? Are there any tips on how to improve my memory and stabilize my anxiety? [more inside]
I can eat dairy and gluten in large quantities to no ill effect, in terms of any GI symptoms, as long as I'm doing so on a regular basis. If I cut them out completely for 2-4 weeks, the initial reintroduction (accidental or intentional) makes me sick for a day or more (bloating, diarrhea, etc.). [more inside]
A close relative is following a gluten-free diet. It's been two years and she feels the same as she did when she started. She's starting to think that maybe she's *not* gluten intolerant after all and got caught up in the hype. Have you or anyone close to you abandoned a GF diet? Did you/then wean back on or go all-in? [more inside]
Greetings All: I have been reading up on transitioning to a vegan diet and there are so many things to think about. One of the best comments I received from someone on a previous post is that eating vegan does not equal being healthy necessarily. So I have been reading some books about eating a healthy vegan diet. I would also like to avoid gluten and somehow work on making this a slow-carb diet if at all possible. [more inside]
So after all of the recent hubbub about how gluten may not be the culprit in many cases of indigestion/discomfort, I learned for the first time about FODMAPs and realized, "Wait a minute... I have gotten painfully bloated from eating ALL of those high FODMAP foods!" BUT. When I search the internet for FODMAP resources I find a lot of woo and a lot of really bland recipes. Is there a way to try a low FODMAP diet without dying of boredom? [more inside]
I'm being forced to acknowledge that dairy and wheat products are probably the source of my constantly stuffy nose and eczema. Some days the sneezing and runny nose are so bad that I can't function. So I'd like to hear from others who have gone down this path: What is it like after quitting dairy and wheat products? Because honestly those are two of my favorite things in life and I don't how I'm going to handle it, should I go down this route.
We are looking for shelf-stable, packaged proteins and veggies that are gluten free to go in lunches. We know about GoPicnic already, but we'd like some more variety and real vegetables of some sort! Proteins are mostly easy (spreads, dips, cheeses, jerkies), but finding the individual packed shelf stable ones are tough. We have found no veggies that fit the bill at all- we were thinking freeze dried veggies, but that sounds unappetizing and looks really expensive (also not individually packaged).
I've started eating vegetarian, but I've really been missing meat. Recently I ate mock duck at a chinese resturant and it was delicious. I looked up it's ingredients and found out it is made of wheat gluten. I looked up how to make wheat gluten at home and came across this article. I tried using this to make wheat gluten, but the end result looks unappitizing. Without being too crude, it looks like excriment. I attempted a couple of times to shape the gluten to be more like that of a strip of chicken or similar meat, but the shape would't hold and no matter how I shaped it the gluten ended up lumpy and slightly tubular. I assume there must be a way to form wheat gluten I make into a more appealing shape. How do I go about doing this?
I am gluten intolerant. I want pizza tonight and have volunteered to find a GF pizza dough recipe and make it for us. My husband is unconvinced, citing that while I make really good gluten free foods, every first attempt at a new GF recipe has been a flop (he's not wrong) so he suspects that the pizza won't be so good. Oh my god, I want to prove him wrong. [more inside]

I'd like to add flour to this gluten free cake recipe, but I'm not sure how much to use. The current recipe makes a very wet batter. Also, would I need to adjust baking powder amount after adding flour?
My son and I are both gluten-free and incredibly sensitive to cross-contamination. We are going to a big family thanksgiving where the food will not be GF and cross-contamination will ruin the food that normally is. (a serving spoon being shared between dishes or someone dropping bread crumbs on an open dish would leave me very sick). I would like to bring dishes so my son and I can enjoy a traditional Thanksgiving meal. I don't mind spending this whole weekend cooking and freezing so he has a nice Thanksgiving. The only problem is that everything we bring has to be microwavable... So help me MFites. What are your favorite Thanksgiving recipes that would hold up well to being warmed up from frozen in a microwave. (Don't worry about the recipe being gluten-free -- I'm pretty good at converting recipes).

I love Canyon House 7 grain bread and the Udis Whole Grain Bread (Gluten Free, both of them). I love them, wonderful breads, the only trouble is it's hard to justify spending $6+ a week on bread that is gluten free. I have a gluten intolerance so I need to eat gluten free. I love to cook/bake, an have lots of flours and mixes. What's the best recipe that is most similar to Udis (any one) or Canyon House that is gluten free? I am looking for bread that doesn't fall apart, looks at tastes like sandwhich bread. Any Ideas? [more inside]
