"This is an awful recipe. Just doesn't work at all. The whole thing still looked just like flour after adding the amount of liquid in the recipe. Wasted a load of ingredients trying it so you don't have to."
"Has anyone used a pasta machine to roll this out? I have had success with egg based GF pasta (with enough xanthan gum) to roll carefully through the pasta machine. Wondering if theres enough hold to do it with this one. Looking forward to trying!"
"This recipe needs a lot of work. The proportions are not correct and the instructions need more work and clarity."

When you follow a gluten free lifestyle, you take certain precautionary measures to ensure that you don't accidentally ingest gluten. However, at some point, the inevitable will happen: you will consume gluten. Whether your order was prepared incorrectly at a restaurant or you took a bite of a cookie with gluten in it, the aftermath is pretty much the same.
Unfortunately, there isn't a magic cure for accidental gluten intake. The best "cure" when you've ingested gluten is time. Depending on the severity of your allergy or intolerance, the time that it takes to pass will differ. However, there are a few things that you can do to either make the symptoms more bearable or help them subside faster.
To ensure that you don't get glutened in your own kitchen, here's a handy guide to help you out: 10 Ways to Prevent Cross Contamination in Your Gluten Free Kitchen
Let yourself rest
Just like any other time you feel sick, rest is your best friend. If you can afford to do so, take time off of work or school. If not, try to lessen your workload for the first couple of days when you feel the worst. Go to bed earlier each night and sleep as late into the morning as you can. The body will naturally repair itself during sleep, so by getting more sleep each night, you are decreasing your recovery time.
Drink plenty of fluids
This is all starting to sound familiar, isn't it? Water is one of the best ways "flush" toxins out of your body, so be sure to be drinking a lot of it! Certain types of tea, such as peppermint and ginger, may also alleviate nausea. Shy away from strongly flavored juices and sports drinks that may have added sodium and sugar as they may further upset your stomach.
Keep an eye on your dairy intake
Due to the hypersensitivity that your intestines are experiencing, you may become temporarily lactose intolerant. It's a good idea to avoid consuming any dairy products like cheese, milk, and yogurt until you are starting to feel better.
Eat "safe" foods
It's a good idea to eat whole and naturally gluten free foods when you are recovering from gluten exposure. This is also not the time to "take a chance" on a new food or restaurant that claims to be gluten free. Be cognizant of your body's needs during this time. Eating mild or bland foods may also help, or at the very least, shouldn't make things worse.

Thank you for these tips. I did accidentally eat a rusk. In South Africa rusks are very common, especially eaten at breakfast time with coffee. A rusk is basically a twice baked sweet bread. I really did suffer but I was new to this and getting rid of old habits can be tough when you are not concentrating on what you are doing. I felt so disappointed, like I had to start from the beginning again. At least I know that there are remedies and it does happen. I am going to take the advice of no dairy as well if it happens again.
