Gluten Intolerance

Is this real? I have always thought it was the new lifestyle fad.

I was diagnosed with dermatitis herpietiformis. Now what? I need to go gluten free? Sounds like a pain. My kids also have acne/eczema that's probably the same thing. I'm not even sure I can go gluten free. It sounds like a disaster. Help!

My daughter legit has to be gluten free. It’s actually not as much of a pain as I thought it would be.

Where did you even start? I have no idea every little thing that has gluten in it. It's stressing me out.

Well we just stopped having bread, pasta, etc. focused on veggies, potatoes and meat. We still do pasta, crackers, etc and just get the gluten free kind for her. Same with waffles, chicken nuggets, etc. we use a lot of corn tortillas.

It's very real. My son is very allergic to wheat, so we are gluten free for the most part. It's not easy, or a pain as you put it, but it's not a choice when it comes to my sons health.

Question: my son is inviting a little boy from school to his birthday party. He is on a gluten free diet as well. I don't know how many other kids from his class are GF that he invited, but I would like to do a GF cake for everyone. What's the difference taste wise?

Yeah these symptoms are no fun at all. I just don't know what I'm doing. Had to be diagnosed 2 days before thanksgiving too

Well I buy the GF mix and can’t really notice. For my daughter I usually just get a normal cake and then buy her a couple GF cupcakes

I don't believe that. Otherwise you'd just get gf for everyone it's easier and inclusive. I think it tastes odd.

It's not. Sometimes the texture can be a little different, but usually not. Gluten free has come a long way in a short amount of time!
