Gluteous maximus

So, I have on-going belly issues. I won't describe them in any detail - suffice to say I'm uncomfortable a great deal of the time.

I've been to the doctor twice, and have another appointment with a specialist in about two weeks. We've ruled out lactose intolerance, giardia and other belly bacteria of the particularly nasty sort. BMG wonders if it is a gluten allergy - too much gluten = sore belly.

I hope that isn't it (and the evidence doesn't point to this). Do you have any idea how many products have gluten in them? In my fridge alone there is a frozen burrito and frozen waffles, half a loaf of bed and tortillas. If I threw these things away (or gave them to neighbors with fewer belly problems), I'd be left with applesauce, yogurt and fat-free 1/2 & 1/2.

I'm afraid I'll starve!
