Rusty,

Not celiac as far as we know.  Amy and I have just cut out wheat and other carbs and feel better for it.  Really, we have found it's not that difficult.  If you want more carbs our favorites are white and sweet potatoes.  We also do rice.  We have really cut back on the carbs and upped the natural fats like coconut oil, butter, almonds, avocados, etc.  -Brandon

Was trying to figure out how to design my diet now that I need to be really careful, but I see that you are successful...maybe I can be,too!
