  1. This is gluten free and casein free, to the best of my knowledge. I'm assuming you don't have issues with eggs. I use this shake for weight GAIN, not loss, but it also works for a protein shake. I am Gluten-free Casein-free and I have had some success with a combination of Rose Acre Farm dried egg whites (cage free!) mixed with Almond Breeze Chocolate (Sweetened with evaporated cane juice) Almond Milk. 1 tablespoon of the egg white powder is 50 calories and 11 grams of protein. 4oz of almond milk is 60 calories and 1 gram of protein. If you call that a "serving" you get 110 calories per serving and 12g of protein per 4oz of shake. Not much in itself but it scales up quite nicely. I typically will scale this up 3-5 times after a workout to get between 330-550 calories and 36-60 grams of protein. Not bad for 12-20oz of beverage which tastes really good and is easy to drink. Mixes fine in a shaker cup as well. I've found this to be the best (and most natural) solution for me. If you can't deal with almond milk (I like it better than soy/rice) you could choose soy/rice milk instead. You can buy the egg whites online at Rose Acre Farms website. You can buy the Almond Breeze at Trader Joe's or online at Almond Breeze's website. I have no affiliation with either. Hope that helps!
  2. I also try to avoid soy and while I do like rice milk, I eat a good amount of rice as it is and figured some variety would be good. I get mine from Trader Joe's, where I'm at in Michigan it's $1.99 per 32oz.
  3. I use Trader Joe's Castile soap (liquid). My hair is short though, and I'm a guy.
  4. I have both a gluten and casein intolerance. Like you, I also used to have very dark circles under my eyes until I eliminated both. Oddly enough I didn't even really notice, others noticed and kept telling me how much healthier I looked and specifically mentioned the circles. I'm luckier in that it's just an intolerance, and that I've found gluten to affect me much worse than casein. I also have noticed that the symptoms I feel when I eat gluten are different than the symptoms when I eat casein. Casein symptoms are more digestive related in that they cause my stomach to gurgle and growl at me like it hates me, I would also say that sometimes it is more difficult to breathe after I've eaten some dairy, but not always, and not to the degree that I get worried. Gluten symptoms are still digestive but more severe and I can feel more "pain". Next time, why not try your own Gluten-free Casein-free dressing on the Bacon Ranch salad and see if you get the same symptoms. Most fast food salad dressings, and really even storebought dressings have all kinds of bs in them (MSG, food starches, casinates), and most fast food products period have weird stuff in them (like the cheese on the salad, the bacon on the salad, etc..) You could always try to make your own bacon ranch salad at home with natural ingredients and a Gluten-free Casein-free dressing to see if the same symptoms occur. Hope that helps..

  6. I am in the same boat as a lot of you on this one, but I think I may have found a very good solution. Rose Acre Farms makes a very good "dried egg white" protein powder which you can order from them online. I started out with the 2lb one but when that runs out it will be time for the 10lb box. It is made from their own eggs, which are cage free (nice!) and there is absolutely nothing else added.. I have been mixing 1 tablespoon (11g protein) per 4 oz of Almond Breeze Chocolate (sweetened with evaporated cane juice) almond milk. It mixes (and scales) very well in these amounts in a shaker cup and actually tastes really good. You don't taste the egg at all, but part of it is foamy as others have described their egg proteins to be, not excessively though. If you're looking for egg free, this isn't going to work, but for those of you who are GFCFSF, drink it with almond milk or rice milk. If you're just Gluten-free Casein-free then you have your pick of rice, soy, or almond milk. I prefer almond milk because I really don't care for soy at all, and I eat enough rice in my diet as it is. The almond milk tastes really good and allows me to mix up my diet to hopefully avoid getting a rice allergy someday. This combo has been the best for me given all of the constraints (price, naturalness, variety from rice, taste, ease of digestion, etc...)
