Please check out this info-graph!

Gluten is a type of protein that is commonly found in wheat, barely, rye, and oats. It gives these certain types of grains the elasticity/ability to hold together.

Some well known foods that contain gluten are, pizza, cakes, cookies, and pasta.

Some not very well known "foods" that contain gluten are, soups, seasonings, packaged meats, medications, condiments, and even candies and gum.

Isn't gluten a common food sensitivity for people with autism? Also, giving up dairy means you can't have a cheat day? Or is it okay to have dairy if you have autism. I can't have milk. It makes my stomach hurt. I only have whey protein and yogurt. I haven't had dairy today though.

Udi's has some frozen meals that are DELICIOUS, Van's crackers and granola/cereal bars are wonderful, and Glutino has a version of Oreo's that tastes better than the original.

Hey, there! I have a question, and so naturally, I am searching for answers. :-) 

Recently, I made the mistake of going to Wendy's to get some fries, even though I know they are not foolproof for Celiac disease. Chalk it up to unhealthy cravings. :-( Anyway, to serve me right, I've spent the past four hours in stomach-twisting pain, with nothing for relief, obviously… except just not doing it again! But this time, along with the stomach pain, I also experienced fatigue and a strange sensation in both arms and upper shoulders. I have had this before, but this is the first time I've associated it with consuming gluten. 

It's a little hard to describe, but it basically felt like a throb or ache all over my arm muscles and shoulders. Any thoughts? I would love to hear from you... or if you posted this in a journal and others responded, that would be great, too. :)
