Hi Dubai Dave - You can buy GFbeer but obviously not as good as the real stuff. I have gone onto to drinking Koppaberg pear cider - if you like cider this is better than Gaymers or Bulmers.
With regards to no effects from some gluten containing foods - I have had it drilled into me my consultant and also the dietician, that even if you do not feel any ill effect you are still damaging your gut, when eating gluten containing foods..
I do own a breadmaker and use Julvela's Fibre Mix (you can get it on presrciption); it makes very good bread, any I do not use I slice and freeze - need to freeze befoer it gets dry and crumbley, but I will try their bread flour. I use Doves GF flour for cakes and fruit crumbles.
I sympathise with you on business trips - I have the same problem when travelling abroad
Yep, I jhad to swap my Panasonic breadmaker for the g-f version - shame as there was nowt wrong with the original except it didn't make good g-f bread.
I've found that the best is the Doves recipe as on back of packet - it doesn't taste like "real bread" but is much more solid and dense and doesn't crumble.
As a coeliac I can also heartily recommend that Mrs Crimbles bread from Sainsbury's. And plenty of Cider seems to replace the need for beer!
I have been a Coeliac for around 22 years and i do not find any problems carb loading for races as I am used to all the GF foods. However my wife suffers from IBS/Colitis and she found that after taking lots of medication that cutting out tomatoes and citris has completely reduced her symtoms, may mean she was intolerant rather than suffering from Colitis but I think the food you eat does have an effect on your body. Hopefully you will find the foods that work for you
london Pride = Poison
I don't think that is a leap of faith I will ever make!
