The Ups and Downs of Gluten-Free

Hi. My name is Kamilah and I am gluten-free. I became gluten-free in the summer of 2013. This was right after my second year at Penn State. I would have never thought that this would happen to me because of my love for food. I love bread. I love pasta. I love cookies. I am not sure why this happened to me, but I am willing to take the reins on my gluten-free journey. Most people are diagnosed early on with Celiac disease, gluten sensitivity, or wheat sensitivity. I am unsure when it started for me, but in my junior year of high school, I made my first emergency room visit. This was caused by severe “acid-reflux”, as explained by my doctor. I began taking lots of medication for the “acid-reflux”. I had a lot of chronic stomach pain for several years. I was afraid to eat. Every time I would eat something, I felt like I was inflicting pain upon myself. Eating cereal in the morning was a problem, too. I thought I was lactose intolerant but in reality, I was allergic to the cereal. I ignored these signs because I needed to eat. I had no idea that gluten was the problem. I saw a gastroenterologist, several doctors, and finally a nutritionist. My nutritionist found a solution. She suggested that I may be sensitive to gluten/wheat and it was true. That’s how it all started.

For the Flakers


Corn Flakes were a staple item for breakfast in my house. I remember when we upgraded to frosted flakes and that was a big deal. It is safe to say that I have found its gluten-free replacement: Nature’s Path Organic Fruit Juice Sweetened Corn Flakes. That was a mouthful but so are these corn flakes. They are just as crisp as the regular corn flakes, and I do not recommend adding sugar. I use Silk vanilla-almond milk. It adds more flavor to the corn flakes. If you’re looking for a cereal in the morning, this is one I recommend.

Waking up in the morning never tasted this good. I like these corn flakes better than the original Kellogg’s corn flakes.

Thai Kitchen


Yesterday was such a busy day and I needed to grab a quick snack before heading out around noon. I had about 15-20 minutes before I needed to leave again and decided on a quick snack: Thai Kitchen’s Instant Rice Noodles. It comes in a pack with the rice noodles, sauce, and seasoning. It takes about a minute to boil the water and two minutes to cook the rice noodles. After mixing in the sauce and seasoning, I also added some frozen shrimp. This was a good snack and easy to make.

My rating on this product: 4 – Almost There

The Gluten-Free Registry Application


I have been searching for a gluten-free application for my smart phone this summer. Going out to eat can be a challenge, and I thought that I would have to give it up. I finally found one that I liked and that was complete. The Gluten-Free Registry is a great and easy-to use application. It can be used on your iPad, iPhone, iPod, Android, or Kindle. Their motto is  “putting people and gluten-free friendly businesses together!”. I can definitely say this is the case.

The application is $1.99 and I can say this is worth it. The application has 5 tabs: Map, List, Menus, Add, and More!. On the map, you can see gluten-free locations pop up that are around you! I have the iPhone 5, and I love the way this works. You can click the red pin and get directions to the location. In the list section, the application lists the proximity of restaurants, bakeries, caterers/chefs, desserts, grocers, hospitals, or vacations. The menus section lists popular chains that have gluten-free menus, such as Applebee’s or Boston Market.  The Add section is where you can add a business yourself! I thought this was great because the gluten-free community should share good and bad experiences that they have at various places. The More! section contains information about how to contact the Gluten-Free Registry, how to read their symbols, your favorites, and how to rate or share the application.

I had a great personal experience on the application. I will be a junior this year at Penn State and I already have located my favorite restaurants from the previous two years. I was thinking to myself, “ Wow, where will I eat now?”. Thanks to the Gluten-Free Registry, I was able to find out that one of my favorite pasta places, Noodles & Company, had gluten-free options! They serve gluten-free rice noodles and fusilli with almost every dish, if you ask. I was so happy and I can not wait to see where this application takes me.
