I've heard that at Arby's you can order the meat, without a bun. Supposedly they put it in a plastic container for you. But I don't know this for sure, as I haven't ordered anything from there for myself since before I went gluten free.
A couple of items I don't have problems w/ at our mall's food court: (I am not very sensitive to cc)
Drinks from Orange Juilous and A& W (as well as other drinks).
French fries & fry sauce from the great steak and potato company (I asked the manager once about other items, he told me the other sides & salads also do not contain wheat/ gluten-- the only thing that does is their sandwhiches (obviously)- but the only item of theirs that I have tried so far is the fries and fry sauce).
I never knew the target snack bar had things like that I could eat. I've enver eaten there, so had no idea what they have, other than ice cream cones & the oh so yummy smelling popcorn (which now I know I can eat! Thank you!) will have to give them a try sometime!
1. yes-- every spring since I was a teen, I would get a rash on my hands and arms... I've been gluten free for 2 years now, the only ime I've gotten that rash was the week of the 4th of July when I accidentally glutened myself.
for dinner tonight-
2 slices gluten-free sliced honey ham (can't remember what brand), cheese & fried egg on a toasted & buttered peice of Rudi's multigrain bread.
your appetite sounds like mine.... some times I'm hungry, most of the time (at least lately) not so much. It's weird for me because I've always been a fairly big eater. So this is definately an adjustment. But at least it's keeping me from re-gaining too much weight!!
Yeah, I'm hoping I have somewhat of an appetite on Thanksgiving/ Christmas/ New Year's, as I'm sure you do, too!I'd like to be able to fill my plate like I used to (which wasn't super- piled up, just full), and eat all of it, and then some pie later .
kinda glad to know I'm not the only one...
just saw this thread.... I, too, have FM issues.
Yes, sometimes a FM reaction doesn't occur until the next day. That usually when it's the worst for me!! For me, gassy in the morning means I ate something the day before that gives me problems.
reactions can occur within a few hours, or take as long as 3 days to occur.
Larabars cause me problems, too-- but not bad enough that I won't eat them once in a great while!
Wendy's Chili--- half of which I ate on the way home .... so when I got home, I added about 1/2 can of kidney beans to it (think I might try to do that more often, makes it less spciy/ oniony for me)... and also had a piece of Rudi's Multigrain bread , toasted, w/ butter--- just bought the bread for the 1st time today-- it actually smelled like bread when I opened the package!
finally got a chance to weigh myself yesterday--247.4-- much as I hate that #(it means I've regained 40 lbs, give or take!! (I'm tall, my goal weight is 182, higest known weight was about 289, lowest weight since starting to loose weight 5 years ago was about 209)--- I'm happy with it b/c honestly, I thought it would be in th 250's, or even 260. Now I just gotta get it going back down, instead of up!
HAven't had much energy lately, but I have been able to do some light exercise 3 days this week. hoping I can go out for a walk this evening.
