    It is tough. I have a Mom who loves to cook for me and is always adapting recipes for me. I know sometimes at first it was hard for her if I didn't feel comfortable eating something or got sick, especially after her going through extra effort for me, but luckily she never doubted me. She would apologize and brainstorm where she went wrong.

    Could you tell your Mom that her food is really delicious, but you think you've been getting cross contamination despite all of her hard work? You can't quite figure out why. (Makes it less of blaming her and more of an "our problem" situation) Then, ask if you could buy some pots, pans, utensils, cooking instruments for her to use that would be devoted to allergy friendly foods. You could get some obnoxious colors so there would be no mistaking it!

    You could also fib and say you went to the dr and the dr said it seems you're still getting gluten somewhere. You couldn't think of where because you have devoted cookware for allergy free cooking. The doctor said that's great, but EVERYONE who cooks for you needs to do what they can to avoid cross contaminating your food. If that's not an option s/he recommends you prepare and bring your own meals. Unfortunately, sometimes people take what doctors say more seriously than people's self reports of how they feel.

    • LOL my mother-in-law got me a Gluten Free Cooking mag, and it actually has some interesting recipes in it... but then invites us over for Christmas Eve dinner and it's spaghetti.... with French silk pie (pie crust) as dessert. I made hubs stop at the store to pick up rice pasta so I didn't have to have JUST wine for dinner... I almost forgot about that until just now!

        • At family lunch today (awesome spread by the way) there was discussion over whether the spread was margarine or butter.

          Mum: It's butter, hostess (my sister) doesn't believe in margarine.
          Brother in law (taking a smidgen): Butter's gonna kill you.

              • My mom recently got the issues of Time with the greatest health discoveries of 2014. I actually quite liked the article where they were talking about low fat and such, and one scientist mentioned the fact that taking 'good' fats out of things and replacing them with sugar and starch doesn't help. Of course, the 'good' fat he mentioned was vegetable but whatever. What was HILARIOUS was right on the next page there was another article talking about how chocolate lovers can rejoice! Soon chocolate will have half the fat as we've learned how to remove the fat and replace it with sugar and fruit juice!

                The juxtaposition cracked me up.

                  • I was watching a Foodtv show at work called Eat Shrink and be Merry.
                    The show's premise is to take unhealthy foods and try to make them healthier.
                    I wanted to bash the women's heads as they took out the fat content meanwhile the TV graphic showed the sugar content of the foods rising.

                      I can understand how someone could think fat is "bad". I can understand how someone could think adding whole grains in place of white flour is "good". What I don't understand, is how someone couldn't think sugar isn't equally as bad as fat! Even before I knew what I know now, I knew adding refined sugar wasn't a healthier option (I may have considered equivalent) than adding fat.

                      • A guy I'm friends with on Facebook mentioned having very high blood pressure and asked for advice. Hilarity ensues.
                        (I'm paraphrasing for the most part--quoting directly seems kind of douchy[er?] somehow)

                        Response #1: passion fruit juice - apparently it lowers blood pressure "super fast" (sugar lowers blood pressure? Really?)
                        avoid salt (eh, not sure about the salt--isn't it false that it effects blood pressure?)
                        eat garlic (again, not sure about this one--I know garlic cures a lot of little problems, but not sure about this one)
                        drink lots of water - something about peeing lowers blood pressure (news to me--could be something I don't know, but it sounds weird)

                        Response #2: Eliminate stress (eh, I kind of agree, but that's more treating a symptom than the actual problem)

                        Response #3: Eat healthy and exercise (too bad most people don't know what that means)

                        Response #4: See a doctor and get some medicine to lower it (like statins? Yeah, great idea) while you work on diet and exercise (see above)

                        Response #5: Shift to a mainly plant-based diet and try to avoid animal products (this was my favorite--CW at its best)

                        Response #6: Dates and figs lower blood pressure (fruit again? Is this more CW nonsense, or is this something I don't know)

                        Response #7: Me telling him to watch the documentary Fat Head with a link to it.

                        I hope he listens to me instead of them. Tho I admit I don't know everything about how to lower blood pressure, a lot of the above (fruit, garlic, etc) sounds kind of snake oil-ish to me.

                          Haha what a load of cw cr*p. I have low blood pressure to the point that doctors always comment on it. I add salt (the pink Celtic stuff) to every meal and always have and don't understand why it's feared. People I know who have kids seem to be terrified of their kids ingesting ANY salt. I'm talking to the point of being afraid of salted butter-not advocating covering kids food in salt. My opinion-it's probably partly genetic anyway.

                          • Response #4. No statins are for cholesterol, you want a beta blocker for that.

                            • In hospital after having bub early sunday morning, and I'm brought breakfast in the birth suite. 2 midwives have already confirmed with me by this time that I am 'gluten free' (grain free was wayyyy too hard apparently)
                              Breakfast consisted of toast with condiments and weetbix with skim milk. I told the lady I was intolerant, and she picked up the milk with the apology 'I'm sorry, but I don't have any soy milk on the trolley. ..' WTF?
                              Explained it was wheat I couldn't have, so she picked up the toast with a vague murmur that they didn't have any gf toast, and to make sure my food preferences where on the system, as telling her face to face wasn't sufficient...
                              It's been in my notes since May...

                                It's stuff like this that scares me about hospitals and at the same time assures me that I won't be out of my league.
