    Gluten free

    I've gone gluten free. Not to be faddish I do have several 1st degree family relatives with true celiac disease and the last 3 years have been having severe stomach issues with no clear diagnosis. So at my Aunts persistent suggestion I said I try eliminating gluten and surprisingly I'm better than I've been in many many months so any one have some "sweet" recipes? I've checked gluten free mixes and they are very expensive. For example a sugar cookie mix is $9.95 at the health food store. Any suggestions? Thanks for the help!

    I, too, have felt better than I have in years. I just troll the Internet and find the recipes that I need. Congratulations on going gluten free. It was easier than I thought it would be.

    ​I do a regular peanut butter cookie recipe but substitute corn flour instead of wheat flour. Corn flour is a little grainier but it still makes tasty peanut butter cookies.

    Be cautious about "gluten free" foods, they can be very high in carbohydrates as they are typically made with corn starch, tapioca starch, potato starch which are all high on the glycemic index. Check out Wheat Belly Blog and Gourmet Girl for recipes. I gave up wheat about 1 1/2 yrs ago and feel much better because of it.

    I was diagnosed with celiac about 10 years ago and have found the most economical cookies to make are the ones that are naturally gluten free. I make peanut butter cookies and chocolate cookies without flour and no bake cookies with gluten free oats.

    A good friend of mine has celiac disease, and says restaurants are not exactly forthcoming when it comes to telling the truth about whether their food is actually completely gluten free.

    Oh my goodness thank you to all for the links and tips! I had not thought about the raising of the glycemic index and I do need to watch that also. Oy if it's not one thing it's another! I checked out the links luvtoquilt and they have some tasty looking ideas. So I bookmarked them. Hadn't thought much about restaurants either. I just try to order very plain. I'll be careful. Many thanks to each of you and if I'm desperate I'll try the frosting! After I check the carbs! Raine
