Enjoy Life Products
0

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.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
