I'm not sure what else it could be. I was tested for coeliac disease and it came back negative. A few weeks prior to the test, I had to eat a slice of bread every day to ensure the test is accurate,...

Is throwing up on about 12 different occasions after eating gluten in the space of a few months an indicator of anything, and stopping once I cut it out?

I haven't just felt sick. Actually threw...

Well, my upset stomachs stopped (with the exception of yesterday) when I cut out gluten, so I don't think it's anxiety related. I felt really sick after eating mushrooms a few weeks ago, too.

Gluten free, no mushrooms... what next?

For the past few months, I've been getting an upset stomach very often, maybe every two weeks or so. I finally figured out that gluten was the cause (and gluten-containing items were one of my...

My blood test for coeliac disease came back negative. Even if I'm not coeliac, I'm still not eating gluten again, as I am definitely intolerant (or perhaps allergic?).

That looks so healthy!

You could try adding some mango and/or orange to sweeten it if you wanted to? I personally hate orange juice, but you might like it. :)
