nthei added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithEtiquette Advice PleaseIt's Assistance Day and I'm an assistant!
I work for a lawfirm who were wonderful enough to take us assistants out and also send us wonderful looking cookie baskets. Yep a COOKIE basket. It did have a box of chocolates enclosed, however, the ingrediants listed FLOUR, so no go on ANY of it for me. Since I'm Celiac, and yes the firm does know this, I decided to share my basket with the rest of the assistants and put my basket in the kitchen for all to partake. I don't have any one to give them to at home, so I thought that was the best idea.
However, when I was taking my boss to get his car, it hit me all the sudden that that act of putting the basket in the kitchen was rude. I swear I thanked him for it verbally. And I am truly thankful and grateful they thought of me, unfortunately I can't have that stuff and I don't have any one to give it to and didn't want to waste it.
Was that rude?
Should I maybe give a little thank you note or something to smooth out the edges?

nthei added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsL-glutamenI purchased L-Glutamen powder from G N C. It says no wheat or gluten and only list L-Glutamen as the ingredient. I didn't do well with it. I didn't get extremly ill, just seemed to produce a lot of acid on my stomach and a little ach. Is it naturally hard to digest? I'm checking with G N C on cross-contamination. I would really like to use it as a supplement if I can find one that is pure.
The benefits seem worth it.
Any one tried the Pioneer supplements that sponse this site?
Have a great day!
Much great health to you all!

nthei added a topic in Gluten-Free Ingredients & Food Labeling IssuesCosmetics/body Care/cleaning AidsI have found much wonderful information on this board on what to avoid and some great cosmetic and cleaning suggestions. But is there a shopping guide/list that I can buy or a good on - line link to one? I have Clan Thompsons. I know the lists are not be all, end all, but they do provide a good basis in concert with me reading lables, especially when you are on the go.
I don't know if you all have this, here are two responses I have received from manufacturers (which I didn't already see on the boards, but apologize if they are duplicate): (though I would share some, since I'm asking to be shared with)

nthei added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsSchnappsForgive my ignorance. But what is schnapps? I used to like to have a Sour apple purcker shote with 7-up before going gluten-free. Is Dekuyper (sp?) apple pucker gluten free? I haven't had it since being diagnosed, but just wondering. I went to the web site and they do not list ingredients.
Have a great day!
Good health to you all!
