Missie, that's awful...though, doesn't chocolate have milk in it? Or was it carob in the brownies?
My mom did some form of special blood work that went through all the strange allergies people have. She had to eliminate everything for 3 months that showed up as an allergy. Supposedly, after 3 months of the diet you can slowly add stuff back in one at a time. Long as you don't 'react' to the added food product, you can continue to keep it in your diet. Could that theory work as well with the wheat/lactose/etc free diet? I know when I was younger, I had issues with my stomach and I had to go completely dairy free for 6 months...I was fine for a long time and now I have to severely limit any dairy intake.
As for bread, what about spelt? Isn't that wheat/gluten free? You have to toast it though - otherwise it is AWFUL, strangely enough, toasting it makes it MUCH better. Kudos on keeping at it, I need to be doing the same and I haven't been able to make and keep the switch. I know it would do wonders if I did.
