Enjoy Life Products

11 posts in this topic

Before I drive 100 miles each way, I am wondering if it would be worth the trip for Enjoy Life products.  I have tried the rice milk chocolate bars and really loved those.  I am wondering about the Plentils and some of the cookies and bars.  Are these good and worth the drive?

 

Any specific ones that you like?

 

Thanks!

I like the chips. I use them to bake. That's about it. (just being honest!) the cookies just did not thrill me.

The plentils are very very good. I also liked the crunchy cookies, but not the soft ones. I also like their gluten and oat free granola (cinnamon raisin). And the chocolate, of course... :) Have fun!

Um, that's a whole lotta gas money! There are SO many websites that sell these products,

maybe go mail order before you make a 4 hour trip?

I ended up driving to get some Enjoy Life products and I am glad that I did.  I will mail order next time but I wanted to make sure that I liked them well enough.  I bought Plentils and they are very very good.  I also got a box of chocolate chip cookies and I really like those too.  I think they are keepers.

Their chocolate chips are the best, in my opinion!

I'm ok with the chocolate I think but something in either the Plentils or the cookies is causing a reaction.  

Glad I didnt buy a bunch of products.

I have tried a couple of brands of lentil chips.  Every one leaves me feeling blechy!  I don't think its gluten, just the lentils?  Flavorings?  Sometimes cheese flavorings on chips bug me.  Real dried cheese doesn't.

I don't think it's gluten either but something made me feel like crap in one of those products.  Oh well.  They were really expensive for what you get.  

The cookies have date paste in them and I have a problem with grapes and raisins so I think dates are in the same family...not sure really but the hubby can eat them....he'll eat anything.    :)

I didn't like those cookies.  They tasted like dates to me, not a chocolate cookie.

The cookies have bothered me too - I seem to be ok with one every once in awhile but any more frequently than that and I feel crappy. They are good though, IMO.

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
