I have tested a couple of recipes in small quantities and I think I have a problem with wheat. I have a birthday coming up and hope to have a dessert but can't really think of anything that doesn't have wheat, eggs, dairy, nuts, or any fruit that I have tried....I think I may be able to tolerate butter but not cheese, I'm not sure. Also, can't tell if I can tolerate oats or not. Any suggestions would be helpful.

You can make the Magic Cake in our book using rice flour...it doesn't call for eggs. I would use half wheat and rice flour...it's a bit crumbly made with all rice. You can also use some almond meal in it and some apple sauce for some of the water. Kristy, what kind of doctor have you been seeing?

What about the chocolate pudding or mocha mousse?http://www.elanaspantry.com/category/desserts http://www.elanaspantry.com/accidental-mocha-mousse

My favorite sweet thing. Yes, it's cheating but seriously I like them even better than chocolate.

Thanks for all the great suggestions. I'm making chocolate coconut cream ice cream - I have coconut flakes, walnuts and cacao nibs for toppings. I made granola a few days ago and I don't think I am having any problems with it. I had forgotten about the yellow cake because I tried it a while ago with lemon before I found vanilla and I can't tolerate lemon. I think I will have to try it with pure ground vanilla. Maybe I could even whip up chocolate icing. I'm not sure how I'll do with wheat but I do have alternative flours to use.
Deb, I was seeing a diagnostician that I found thru a lyme disease support group listing. When I first found him I was researching some of the most unusual symptoms that I was having (ear cartilage pain, foot pain (arches) when first waking) because I thought I would have more luck finding out what I had that way. I had not had any luck with any other doctors before and would have given up if my daughter's symptoms weren't getting worse, too. (The worse I felt the more we relied on packaged foods so the vicious cycle...) Anyway, he seemed to be really interested in solving the puzzle of our symptoms and did extensive blood work. He was pretty good about not putting me on heavy drugs to mask the symptoms and had a different thing to try each visit. As smart as he was, he was still clueless about food even though I told him that I was becoming allergic to everything and that I was gaining weight even though I ate about 1/4 the amount that everyone else ate with a very limited diet. Looking back on it now, we couldn't figure out why I started to decline again but it was after he suggested I drink Diet Rite cola when I wanted something sweet.
After my blood tests, he prescribed folic acid and b12 supplements and indomethecin (sp?). He had me on diabetes meds for a short time but discontinued them when he saw my glucose was pretty stable. He treated me for H. Pylori and lyme disease (tons of antibiotics - shudder...) but nothing helped of course.
Now I am losing weight so fast that even my hats and shoes are too big. My daughter and son have lost a lot of weight, too and we don't go hungry. We are so amazed at all the changes. I keep meaning to go back and have some more blood work done so that he can see the changes and I will have clinical documentation of the positive changes but I just haven't done it yet. I especially want him to see that Krista's asthma has been cured - she hasn't needed an inhaler since January. It is just mind-blowing that a sincere, smart doctor has no idea about all this. I can't help but wonder how many MSG victims he has treated for chronic lyme disease.

Wow, Kristy! I'm so glad to hear that you are feeling so much better now. That's great news about the weight loss too.
Good luck with your birthday dinner, it sounds yummy!

Kristy, That is wonderful news about you and your children. Can't wait to hear what your doctor has to say and how the blood work comes back (when you go) although it's not really all that important at this point, is it? I think your story would be a great addition to the topic "Share Your MSG Story/Recovery".

Glad you and your family are doing so well. Indomethacin can tear up your stomach, and antibiotics can cause severe reactions, too. Doctors need to look at everything that's going on, not just symptoms.

I like the idea of those no-bake oatmeal cookies. Easy to google.
