I probably should get the SWAMI to answer this question.  A few weeks ago I bought parmesan cheese crisps at WF and felt OK about them.  Really I could have gobbled up a whole package but wisely bought the small container.  Last week I found what I'm pretty sure was ok parmesan at the co-op.  I got diarrhea a day or so later   but think it could have been because of something in the gluten free mac n cheese or the gluten free brownie..... I didn't check the ingredients really closely.  It could have been spelt.  

I would like to have cheese at least weekly and wondered if anyone has any input about that.

Also, gluten free products:  are they more trouble than they are worth?

I avoid "products". Check your labels.

Better to make something yourself.

It couldn't have been spelt in a gluten-free product, but it could have been corn, potato, "avoid" bean foulr, and/or  gums or stablizers. The only "products" I buy are rice cakes, puffed rice, and chocolate chips (for the kids.)

I have problems with glutenfree products; the oils, the gums, etc. I don't think it was the cheese.

Most commercial GF mixes and products are loaded with corn derivatives, avoid flours or ingredients and gums. But I understand about birthdays and indulgence. If you want to have an occasional treat, I'd say your best bet is to invest in a bottle of Deflect. It minimizes the damage taken before and after whatever you're eating that's not so good for you.

It was my birthday.  



My birthday was this past Sunday.  My daughter made one of my favorite cakes, a lemon glazed cake and it was delicious!  I had a piece after dinner and then the next day I had a fairly large piece to finish off the cake.  By that afternoon I had serious gas.  Next morning, diarrhea.  I am still not sure if it was all the sugar, white wheat flour or the extra magnesium I took.  I guess the only way to find out is next year on my birthday, I will skip the magnesium  

Happy belated birthday, Sahara!

Happy Birthday!

It's fine to have "avoids" a few times a year, such as for your birthday. Just be aware that there could be consequences. My past birthday, DD1 and I shared a pint of coconut milk ice cream. It wasn't as tasty as I remember it from a few years ago, and I didn't feel so good after eating it. I think I'll skip it next year. By the time my Hebrew birthday rolled around, and all 3 kids were home, I was in no mood for another birthday celebration. We stuck a candle in my beef burger and called it a day.

Happy belated birthday Sahara and Patty!

My DH is an O-Hunter and has sensitivities sort of like mine....especially to gluten and cow dairy. We eat sheep cheese...no problems. Some gluten free products do have so many avoids and actually don't taste very good.

Happy belated birthday Sahara and Patty H!!!  

Gluten-free stuff can be quite nasty on the whole (store bought that is) - I find the corn/maize products they use in them will usually induce a dodgy tummy with me!  Best to avoid.  Except if one is inclined to exercise one's birthday prerogative that is    Then of course you'll have to pay the price later!

Yes..... makes me think I should get SWAMI.  I had goat's milk last night for fun....  my meal planning is better.... am constipated today.  Yes, I know, goat milk is an avoid.  OT slightly.  
The GF products combined with some parmesan cheese I had over the weekend seem to have kicked up some celiac type/IBS diarrhea symptoms I haven't had in a while.
