I had horrible heart burn all three times I was pregnant. HORRIBLE.
My last one, we had a friend who was a naturopath. He recommended Braggs...take 1 tbs, chased with 8 oz water (do not dilute FIRST then drink...take the tablespoon, count to 5 and then drink the water).
I took that at about 7 months (he told me at three but it took a few months for me to work up the nerve to try it!).
Within an hour I had no heartburn. none. Not even a smidge.
And it didn't return for 18 months.
Now I do it every couple of months as a preventative measure, and I haven't had heartburn again!
I have 3 kids (8, 6 and 3)...we eat there maybe once a month.
They have a "kids" menu...but basically will make ANYTHING based on the ingredients they use.
My kids usually get the carnitas soft tacos (or crunchy, depending on mood). My eldest is brave enough for the guacamole - but it has a tendency to be on the spicy side.
The restaurant is like most fast food on a tray type places (well...except for McD's, maybe!)....but there's places to sit, high chairs, etc....they are very accomodating!
My husband always does the ordering, has the person behind the counter change gloves and do my order first (a bowl, almost always!). Then he has them cover it while they do the others (so that nothing slaps into it). In ours you work with one person for your whole order and the only thing they touch with gloved hands is cheese and lettuce...everything else is spooned. They are ALWAYS accomodating...so far I haven't gotten sick from them at all.
I learned to make some of the stuff myself, though, because I could eat at Chipotle every day!!! I love thier carnitas!!! I'm still perfecting, but it's getting pretty darn close!
I SAW A BOX TODAY! It was $4 something in my regular store...I'm going to check out Wally World tomorrow and see if they have Rice Chex (mine isn't a superW, so don't know if they carry everything...they have a few groceries...but not all of them).
I'm so excited that I dont have to pay $6 a box for cereal anymore!
I'm curious why they don't make their corn ones gluten free too....it just seems to make sense to me.
First...I am REALLY sorry that your family won't join you in your gluten free eating! How sad. Now...I have more time than you...and I homeschool too...so I know all about the activites!
I do cook gluten free for my whole family. I do allow them to have bread, cereal and waffles that aren't gluten-free...but I cook one meal for dinner and that is it. Don' t like it...don't eat. MEAN MOMMA!
That in mind, I try REALLY hard to cook things that we ALL like. My one child was never hip on pasta...so even that's a minimum.
I make chili, tacos, carnitas (mexican pork), baked lasagna (tinkyada lasagna noodles). I try really hard to take some of the leftovers to freeze for on the quick meals. Stews and soups are great for on the go too.
I'm kinda busy today - my husband just tore our kitchen to the floor boards yesterday! I can post a few recipes later that you could make in big batches and freeze single servings for yourself.
Okay...I was a nay-sayer before about how hair and skin care products couldn't gluten you...not anymore.
So...hair and body care...and make up...what do you use?
(I have the everyday minerals sample...I'm reacting to it...but I just read that whole other post on it - I'm wondering if I'm reacting to the brushes! My sister gave me a set of Bare Minerals brushes for Christmas...where do I get a good brush that won't cause hay allergies?).
(oh...and I cannot afford A rbonne...as much as I'd LOVE to....I cannot).
Hi there! Unless you know an "allergen" caterer I think you'd be better off doing the food yourself. I've done meals for more than that and it is really not hard.
Think finger foods...
Veggie tray with dip (there are some that are gluten free or you could make your own)
Fruit Tray with dip
Chips/tortilla chips with dips or salsas
Big salad w/ variety of dressings
Meal stuff could be:
OR Meat and cheese tray
Or you could go themed with the food and prep it all ahead so all you have to do is warm up the day of the party.
I have some recipes I'd be more than happy to share.
I've thrown a few showers in my day and even before being gluten free did all the food myself.
