    I went gf due to migraines (gf already so too late to test-migraines were gone, didn't want them back) then found out my father has celiac....I also found out, from hives and itchy mouth, that I have a wheat allergy!

    I can give ideas! Add me! ;)

    Hi, I'm not celiac but I have to be on a fodmap diet (no wheat, among lots of other things) due to severe ibs/gerd and tummy issues. It's restrictive for some things, but the gluten-free aspect is hard. It's actually not the gluten but the wheat that I can't have. Would love more friends that understand how difficult it can be, to eat out, recipes, etc :) Anyone can add me!

    Stop relying on free-from foods and start eating more natural foods (meat/veg/fruit/dairy etc etc)

    Free-from foods are often worse than the "real thing".

    There is a great gluten free group on here. I stick to mainly home made items which helps alot.
