    Default problem with wheat?

    Hi,

    can someone give me some advice please? After a lot of trial and error and food avoidance I think I have a problem with wheat, maybe yeast as well. I'm not really sure. After eating bread, pasta and pizza I feel awful. Sore throat, sore ears, tiredness, stomach pain and feeling as though I'm having trouble swallowing and getting enough air. Later on I usually get itchy skin. I also can't eat melons, tomatoes and shellfish. Can anyone please advise me on what to eat? In particular, are there any high fibre breakfast cereals out there? Is bread completely out of the question? Starting to feel as though I'm running out of food. I love baking but don't know of any good recipes which don't include wheat. So if anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

    Well the best advice i ever got was to look at what you CAN eat.

    For brekkie i make my own muesli Coles cornflakes/ricepuffs (health food section) and oats, + sultanas seeds and slivered almonds.

    Lunch try Ole Time bakery products, rice cakes, home made pancakes using gluten free flour, rice/wheat free pasta with tuna etc.

    Dinners are easy... or easier than other meals A lot of thickeners and sauces have wheat free alternatives, its just a matter of coming up with alternatives.

    Bread is hard, you can try some of the alternate grain ones but a lot have some wheat in them. The nicest bread we found was "The Real bread mix"its in a pink zip-lock pack in coles health food section.

    Its just trial and error really, dd1 is wheat free but also dairy & additive so we are a lot more restricted than you are. When you have a couple of hours free, spend it checking labels in the supermarket and googling for recipe ideas.

    Have you been tested for celiac disease? If you haven't, and you think there is a chance you will need to be, don't give up wheat yet, because the tests won't work if it's out of your system.
