Are you stating that Torani's website is out of date? If so, what is your source?

 

http://www.torani.com/faqs Under product-related questions.

I  am stating that caramel color and vanilla flavoring are not a gluten concern any more.   If you review the thread, you may find some valuable information that you seek. :)

 

EDIT:  Peter provided some relevent links, while I pondered my reply.

I'm just not entirely sure that caramel color or vanilla flavoring is the issue with the Torani syrups. The list of the ones that contain it isn't all inclusive of all of the tan or caramel-colored syrups or ones with vanilla flavor, for that matter. I'll just stay away from them -- I was just bringing it up as an example of gluten-containing ingredients not being disclosed on the label when the manufacturer states on their website that it does contain gluten.

 

For example, the salted caramel does not contain gluten.

It can be if you use a lot of specialty items. However, most meals can be made gluten free. Rice or potatoes are good as a starch for meals.

Do you have a crock pot? Toss in some chicken, with some sort of veggie, and let it cook it.

And don't forget, ziplock bags are your friends. Make big meals, portion them out and freeze them. I only cook once or twice a week. I have a freezer full of meals I made myself that I just grab and microwave during the work week.

In my area of northern California, I find Sprouts supermarket to be reasonable. One of our big costs is bread... my wife loves bread and has not been able to give it up even though I try to cook other whole foods. They often have Udi's bread on sale and I buy a whole bunch and freeze it.

 

I agree with other people who have posted here. There are lots of foods that are naturally gluten free, so switch to those kinds of foods. If you stick to things that are traditionally made from wheat it get's difficult to keep food costs low.

 

For instance, buy corn tortillas which are gluten free from several low cost brands rather than a tortilla made from a mix of other gluten free flours and made to "look" like other wheat tortillas or wraps.

 

I have a question to anyone out there that may be able to answer it. How does anyone afford to shop glutin free is there a good place to shop that is affordable. I have a house of 5 and my pockets aren't deep enough to afford the cost of glutin free foods. Help

It does sound like you're getting glutened by something -- I would start digging. Check for sources of cross contamination first. Pots that have had pasta cooked in them previously (I was reacting to mine because it had a white film inside that we could not scrub off that I can only assume is gluten from wheat pasta), strainers, anything porous. Check your medications and/or vitamins. Do you drink herbal tea? Some of those have gluten. Lipstick/gloss/balm?

I thought I had all of the gluten out of my diet and then 6 months in I began accidentally glutening myself with some fries I thought I had checked. It was minute amounts, and only every few days, but it was enough to make me feel slightly ill. I had to go back to checking every label before I ate anything (not a bad practice anyway). I think you might want to recheck your labels and cooking appliances.  Check your baking suppies too - sometimes stuff like sugar or baking powder can be contaminated.

 

As for the cost of easy meals on the go, I agree with the others that you'll need to do prep work and use things like crockpots. We eat a LOT of leftovers, and that helps. You can always push back dinner and eat later and make some protein bars or smoothies to pack along on the go.

are you keeping a food journal?  oh, snap, are you kissing your husband.  that got me in the beginning!   

 

honestly, everybody starts out bumpy.  i cried in the grocery store :(  i quit eating, too, for a day or so - i still do every now and again when something has got me and i can't figure it out.  even now, i get all carried away and eat something with many components (ie:  cuban sandwich yummmmmm) but it made me sick so i ate one of the components (ham, cheese, pork, pickles, olive salad) each day to see what was giving me heartache.  (turns out it was the vinegar in a particular brand of olive salad - said it was gluten free but my guts begged to differ loolz)  so i switch brands or make my own.  

 

hope you are feeling better soon

It is so frustrating to me. I cant figure it out and I read everything but then I hear that there are other things that seem to give people problems. Like Whey because things i get glutin free say they have whey in them and also diary. I take lactose pills but im not sure if it's helping......
