My Friend has a problem

Postby The Dead Parrot on Sat Dec 09, 2006 1:48 am

One of my friends is allergic to Gluten, which is normally in pasta. This means he cannot eat pasta, or the bread that goes with it! Whatever shall he do! He cannot fully accept the High Communion of Pastafarianism!
During the Space Race, American astronauts were faced with the problem that ink from their pens would not stay on the pentip.
After spending millions of dollars and a few years in research, they came up with the ballpoint pen. This solved the problem.

The Soviets, faced with the same problem, used a pencil.

There is such a thing as gluten-free pasta. It is made from a grain that doesn't contain gluten. If your friend has a pasta machine, he can make it himself or he can look in the "crunchy" aisle of his local grocer. Also available at Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Wild Oats, or Sunflower should he have one of those stores in his area.

I've eaten it before. It's not quite as satisfying as pasta made from semolina but it's pretty good if the alternative is no pasta at all.

Eat in good health. RAmen.

Also, anything in the shape of pasta can be considered pasta. Twizzlers, for example, capture the feeling of pasta and so can be used as a replacement when in dire need.

Or you could trick your friend into thinking he's eating pasta, when in fact he's eating cereal or something, because it's the thought that counts. :o

I never knew that. Maybe I should start eating twizzlers more often.

Do Pop-Tarts count, since they look like pasta before it is cut?

Actually - Twizzlers CONTAIN GLUTEN. Please don't reccomend that! I too am allergic to wheat gluten and closely related items.

Whole Foods, Trader Joes and doubtless many local markets will have spelt, kamut (too close to wheat for me) and rice, corn, quinoa and other grains to play with.

*read every label*. That's the only thing I can say. Been away from wheat for a decade and my health is so much better than it had been before. There are great bakeries (if you're in the middle or east coast of the usa try Berlin Bakery in berlin ohio) which cater to specific needs like this.
Am I to burn in noodly hell because I am allergic to Wheat? Am I condemned to a life and afterlife without beer? Is there no cheese without the holy liquid from cows that I can substitute? *cries*

As stated above, there are a great many gluten free products on the market, which include Pasta. Actually it's quite good. I know 'cause for a time it was thoguht that my daughter might have a gluten allergy (turns out she did not) and thus we tried many gluten free products. The pasta was one of the better ones.

I, too, am allergic to gluten and when eating vegetable pasta just don't feel the same connection to His Noodliness. It is indeed a cruel state of affairs; have I done something to incite His disfavour?

Having just read it, well, the answer is in the FAQhttp://www.venganza.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=3517.
Welcome to my signature.
If you wish to read it in its entirety you will probably be disappointed. I'm not going to put anything witty or profound in here for a while. Any time you want to stop reading, be my guest. You won't find anything interesting here. I plan on adding something funny eventually, maybe when I can actually be original. Are you bored yet? Why are you even reading this?
If you skipped to this line you'll be disappointed.
There's nothing here either.

What is a twizzler? oh and vowels - hand out dictionaries to our mobile only citizens - might be good for the curriculum to have them learn to spell - I know lawyers, senior naval officers and corporate managers who have trouble spelling - text talk must perish.

Twizzlers are a brand of fruit snack, apparently, though I would have called them licorice before I Wiki-ed it just now.
