Thankfully I have a total notch omelet maker in house.  If I didn't, those sound pretty good.

My husband makes the BEST omelets ever...he's gotten quite good at it.  However, he doesn't like egg white omelets so doesn't make those. I use these when time is limited...which is often.  I was very surprised at how good these are. They can be difficult to keep in stock at my local grocery store.....I think the gluten-free people have discovered them.  ;)

I think they would be good for work or traveling, too. I haven't seen them but I'll look.

I have not had an egg roll in a LONG time! I hope I can find those at a store near me! We went to the city today, over 2 hours round trip and found the frozen Bistro meals! We do buy some processed foods because my poor husband does most of the cooking (I am not able to do it any longer)  plus he works 11 hours a day, 6 days per week at 62 years old so he needs the break sometimes.

 

Thanks for the suggestion Bunnie. :D

 

Edited to add, I checked on locations of the egg rolls and none are sold within a 100 miles of me.

I am currently eating an Artisan Bistro gluten-free frozen " meal". This one is the Cheddar Beef Bake. I microwaved it and its pretty tasty. Not very big or cheesy but has a nice spicyness. Only 250 calories so it can't be very big. Not sure about the price as I got them on sale for about $2.89.

Organic, grass- fed no hormone beef.

I will buy more.

Oh wow!  Finally something my daughter can eat!  Between her needing whole grains, picky eating and food intolerances there isn't much in the way of convenience foods for her.  But it looks like she can eat the tuna bake.  And tuna isn't something that she gets often because I can't eat it.  But she loves it.  And she loves peas.  And they sell it at a store near where my dad is.  So I'll look for it.  Thanks!

Thanks Karen, these sound really good!  I am like someone else who posted, I don't even look at most things like this anymore.  But it might be time to change that.

I just tried Tandoor Chef Chicken Pad Thai and it was really good.  It says "Gluten Free" though not certified and it does say made in a facility that processes tree nuts, milk, wheat and sesame, so not for everyone.

 

Ingredients are:  Rice Noodles, Chicken Breast, Onions, Bean Sprouts, Milled Cane Sugar, Scallions, Peanuts, Carrots, Canola Oil, Vinegar, Radishes, Organic Wheat-Free Soy Sauce, Red Chili, Coriander, Garlic, Salt, Tamarind, Ginger, Basil, Potato Starch, Dextrose.

 

Have Celiac and I'm still pretty new to this - did I take a foolish chance given the "made in a facility..." warning?  Ate about 90 minutes ago and feel fine.  I'd like to have this again.

 

Can anyone advise?

 

Thanks.

I don't think that is foolish at all.  All the ingredients are gluten-free and the CYA of shared facility doesn't mean wheat ever gets near that particular product.  Someone very wise has posted -- most of our kitchens are "shared facilities".

 

Should you find you are reacting to products with a shared facility stmt...then remove them.

I love frozen meals, because they make it easy to come home to a quick meal and keep me from trying to get takeout, which can be a challenge and still sometimes turns out badly from a gluten-free standpoint. Amy's are my favorites since I'm vegetarian as well -- I find that a lot of the ones without a "Gluten Free" banner across the top are gluten-free...they'll have it on the bottom corner of the package instead. They do have some dairy free and soy free options. Not sure about corn free but I would think there would at least be a couple of options there. I really like their DF/SF/gluten-free mac and cheese, but I don't have it often because it's high fat/calorie.

Thank you for posting the info karen:-)

I have a teenager who is eating a lot. Growing a lot too. So I am having a hard time keeping up with home cooked meals for him. I feel better when he is out at a friends house to send food with him.

Have you tried these? More like what the other teens would be eating.

Now I just have to find some of those products.  It look's like there has been another merger/buyout between Julie's and Glutenfreeda.  Now I have to figure out when this happened?

I think quite some time ago, judging based on the ice cream sandwiches made

with Glutenfreeda cookies and Julie's ice cream I've seen on shelves for a few

years now. That may have been a precursor to a merger or something tho. I do

know that Julie's ice cream is quite tasty!

    • Chipolte New Marinade
      I don't think any of their food was " certified" gluten-free?  
    • "Pre-Celiac" & scared
      Is there anyone else "pre-celiac" and asymptomatic like me who has had long-term success without losing their mind and still enjoying eating out without feeling like you have to stay in a plastic bubble?  This site has been helpful to me these past months.   I don't have it "Yet" and I am scared.  Sorry this is long but I wanted to be thorough: Two years ago I started experiencing GERD (heart burn, pain under my left rib cage, and regurgitation).  After trying probiotics, kambucha, kefir, apple cider vinegar, aloe juice, eliminating chocolate, citrus, tomatoes, spices, cinnamon, mint, alcohol, not eating 3 hours before bed, I was no better. I got an endoscopy/colonoscopy.  The dr found gastritis and esophagitis.  No hernia, infection or ulcer.  He started me on PPI.  I got 99% relief.  After 6 months I decided to go off PPI.  After suffering for 3 months, I went back to dr and back on PPIs for a year.  Because I am young, 39, and the PPIs have side effects, he discussed surgery with me. I went to a specialist. All the tests showed my esophagus was normal but my lower esophageal sphincter was not closing properly.  I was a good candidate and decided on the MUSE, (Endoscopically stapling the esophagus to prevent reflux) When the specialist did his endoscopy (1 year after previous one and before I was on PPIs regularly)  he saw villi damage that looked like textbook Celiac.  HUH?  I don't have ANY symptoms.  No cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, bloating, gas, discomfort, NOTHING.  He took biopsies and the results were "non-specific" perhaps "clinically latent celiac sprue" or a number of other things. So I took blood tests.  The celiac gene test was "susceptible" and I had "high" antibodies, but not positive.  Dr said go gluten-free to prevent  celiac. Did the PPIs cause the villi damage because I couldn't absorb the wheat properly and triggered celiac in me?  It sounds reasonable.   I wonder if now that I have had the MUSE and may be able to stop PPIs, will I be able to digest gluten better? Very interesting.  I plan to call a celiac specialist where I live to discuss this with him. I have not eaten gluten intentionally for 2.5 months now.  It did not help my GERD before the surgery.  Dr said they were unrelated anyway.  I am concerned about CC, breathing in, and accidental ingestion, but since I have no symptoms, I can never tell.  So I take glutenease when I eat out and glutamine powder to try to repair the damage.  How careful should I be since I don't have it "yet"? Amy's gluten-free frozen foods are great, and I read every label at Trader Joe's, eat off the gluten-free menu, corn tortillas @ Mexican, no soy sauce or imitation crab @ sushi, steamed veggies @ Chinese, & gluten-free pasta @ Italian. Member Lisa wrote, "Even though you eat as gluten free as possible, you probably consume close to that amount of gluten due to cross contamination in processed gluten free food and other exposures. ...Eating 100% gluten free is a total improbability. "
      Most people with Celiac can handle 20ppm.  So is that equivalent to breathing in flour?  Having a half a teaspoon of soy sauce by accident in Asian food?  I can live without bread and cookies, but gluten is IN  so many things. Some on this site with Celiac have separate toasters, don't eat out, and don't walk into bakeries while there are others that eat out and eat fries made in shared oil at BK.  Even I haven't done that.  Isn't it dangerous? Thank you for you help!!
    • Pins And Needles
      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.

      Chipotle is changing their preparation methods including how the marinade for the chicken and steak. Does anyone know if it's been certified gluten free?
