    This is Carol, Wolfe's wife as I have celiac disease, the DH part.
    You have made wonderful improvements, things we can find in a flash which is exactly what I need.
    Angie, I had to get rid of some newsletters as I was inundated and had no time for all of them.
    Thanks so much and thank you Wolfe for making me a member.
    Sincerely,
    Carol.P.S. Great things just in time for Christmas.

    Thanks for the new look and management of recipes. I was about ready to stop my subscription because I don't have time to view the posts every day and my "save" pile is so big that it is overwhelming when I do get to check out the recipes. I'm looking forward to an new experience with your new website. Happy Holidays!!

    Help, Help, Help!! I am dealing with this issue of celiac disease, and I have a recurring infection in my small intestine. I need help planning my meals daily. I am the only family member with this issue out of 300 people. What do I do?? Super frustrated and depressed.

      Hi Lisa, I'm so sorry to hear that. Of course we cannot diagnose a condition over the internet, so you should definitely see your family doctor about that. But beyond that, please continue to read all the emails we send... many of the recipes will be useful for you.

        I am new in this new life eating process. I am sick with discouragement and a big loss of confidence. Everything I make doesn't work. Am I expecting too much? I love to make food from scratch and I am use to being successful but celiac has thrown me curve ball. I have surfed and read all I can. I intend to be successful with your help. Thanks for being here for us.

          You're welcome! Be patient with yourself, as you probably do a lot of things without thinking... now you need to re-think and re-learn. But you'll get there for sure!

    I really enjoyed the tour, and exploring the site on my own. Tonight my son and I tried out the pomegranate, hazelnut, chocolate candies..... wonderful!
    Thank you so much. I'm not great navigating websites generally, but your new site is easy for me.

    I really like your G-F site, & have saved & printed out many of the recipes. I am attempting to convert more & more to G-F recipes, even though I am not gluten-intolerant. I have quite a few friends who are, & for that reason whenever I am at a social gathering, I like to provide something that everyone can safely eat. Thank you for posting your G-F flour conversion chart.

    Fortunately I am not a celiac, but do have friends who are, so want to be able to cook so they can enjoy the same meal as the rest of us. Have talked to a number of people who have gone gluten free and are now much healthier. Also, when we visit with a couple in a different province for a week or so, even though we're not as active as when at home, we find that we don't gain weight. She said that she thought her diet would really be restricted when she was first diagnosed, but has found that with some changes the diet is actually healthier. Am learning what to look for on the 'ingredient' list. Thank you for this site so I can learn more of what I can do for my friends besides using rice cakes to make open face sandwiches when the rest of us have regular bread. I have also become very aware of how much gluten is in foods where we least suspect it. Thankfully more gluten free products are available in grocery stores and I really enjoy finding new things to share with my friends that they haven't yet found. My most interesting finds have been in small stores - they don't have too many items, but what they have is very different to the large stores.

    Hi, everyone. Im not exactly new to the gf diet, i have done it once before and was very successful with getting rid of my wheat sensitivities. I am back on it again, witht the same problems as before. Im hoping that through this website i might get some insight and maybe a little encouragment to make this diet permanent instead of temporary. I just learned about this website, and it sounds intriguing, I am looking forward to seeing alll it has to offer. Thanks (:

    I am dealing with this issue of Celia disease, and I have a recurring infection in my small intestine. I need help planning my meals daily.

    I also have to deal with Diverticulitis as well when infected .
    I went over your recipes here.

    You have gravy which I cannot have period. Not even the free Gluten. I cannot have veggies or fruit with seeds.
    Because then I get the diverticula infected . In the pockets of the bowel. Pain city.

    So I eat well going on a month. With Gluten food. Nothing fancy.

    Do you have a calorie calculator on here for us.

    Not seeing it. Other sites have it. Like Dr Oz.

    Not really seeing allot of food with having both problems. Allot of rich food for a family and sweets, sweets. I thought I would see more for people for one or two .

    With me they go hand in hand the two disease's. That is what I had to deal with before christmas and now in Emerge.

    So any suggestions? Can you better you recipes without buying all those books you have for sale. Or pay for upgrade. Most health stores. I have been too not that well educated if you ask about something they pull out a thousand page manual.

    Thanks.

    Hi Angie, It took me a few days to get back on my computer, had a problem , but everything is ok now. Missed all the up to dates but will catch up. Nice Having you there.

  22. Carolyn February 19, 2014 at 11:14 am #

    Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with cilliac ( if that's even spelled right ). I don't know were to start. My 13 year old grandson lives with us as well, this makes it harder to find things to eat. Basically all I have been able to eliminate is white bread, with store bought bread which isn't that good. I have seen some bread recipes here but I don't know what the ingredients are/or were to get them.

    Where do I start ?

  23. Jo Zimny March 5, 2014 at 1:18 pm #

    Hi:

    I have been avoiding gluten for some time now and I feel much better for it. I really love some of the recipes that are post on this site, but I have one concern. It's the "sugar". If we could all get off the sugar habit and start using less or none it would be great. But, like so many out there I have a sweet tooth and I find some foods are not palatable without something sweet added, so, I have discovered two substitutes, Stevia and Xyla. Now these products are still fairly expensive, especially the Stevia, but, you use so little of it, it goes a very long way. Stevia is made from a plant, I really like that. It has an acquired taste. The Xyla is a bit expensive, but still affordable. It's made from hardwood sap and is so much better for you than sugar. It doesn't promote tooth decay either and is low on the glycemic index. All things in moderation however, it's still a sweetener so I learned to use less. One has to take matters into their own hands to remain healthy now days, it can really save a lot of illness and financial hardship in the future.

      Really great thoughts Jo. I totally appreciate where you're coming from. I've also been reducing the amount of sugar in my life. Part of the reason we have so many recipes with sugar is that removing gluten is the highest priority for many of the people coming to our website. And giving up so many things already is difficult. But you're right, the next step for health is likely removing sugars and refined carbs as well.

      • Sheila April 21, 2014 at 8:23 pm #

        Hi Angie. Thanks for the email. I did get my account figured out and thank you so much. This site fun and very informative. Way back when I was first diagnosed the nurse told me before the test "Don't worry, that delicate stuff is so rare that you won't have that". There was hardly any information available at the time. So I am thrilled that you and others have taken the time to get this information out there. It is much appreciated by all of us in the GF community.

    Hi Angie,

    Found your site several years ago and have passed it on to many friends with gluten or other food allergies since then. They seemed quite glad to have such a good resource to help them out.
    I have no food sensitivities that I know of but have family and friends over for parties and meals quite often. Thanks for making it so much easier to prepare foods they can enjoy without worrying about after-effects.
    Looking forward to exploring your new format.
    Keep up the good work!

    Jill

    Angie, thanks for all you do. I know it's got to be a lot of work keeping up with everything. I've been GF for 2 and half years and I am gluten sensitive or intolerant. My mom was Celiac as well as other family members. I also have Crohns and a few other things. Crohns is so much better and I have more energy since going off and staying off of gluten.
