Tater Tots And Smiley Fries
0

6 posts in this topic

Thanks to my food log, I can look back and see that the last few times I've had Tater Tots or Smiley Fries I seem to have an "epsiode" the next day or so. Which is a shame, they are tasty and one of the few "convenience" foods I have.

Does anyone else seem to have a problem with them? Is it just that's it's processed?

Shame too - I've been doing great lately and of course don't want to take one more thing away... esp. an easy food.

Ev--I eat the McCain's smily fries with no problem at all. I have not had tater tots, but Ore Ida hash browns, I believe, affected me. I stick to the McCains--any of their "blue bag" products have been fine for me. I always read the labels to make sure when trying a different one--and their customer service is very nice and helpful.

What kind of tater tots are you having?

Ore-Ida makes tater tots, and the ingredients list doesn't suggest anything bad in it, however they do not appear on their official gluten free list so I have always avoided them.

If you are near a Giant Eagle, I eat their tater tots all the time and haven't had a problem...yet!

The only other thing that I seem to have around the same time is a fruit smoothie (strawberry and bannana) made with almond milk. Last time at the store the Pacific Vanilla flavor was on sale, usually I use Blue Diamond plain almond milk. Hmmm....

I hate that the only way to test a food is to eat it and make plans to be near a bathroom :rolleyes:

I've tried Ore Ida oven bake fries and gotten sick 2x....ingredient list looked fine - but no luck.

Moving on to try McCains.

    • Over the past month or so, I have been have a fuzzy feeling in my left ear canal. The best I can describe is it feels like there is a bug in my ear, but when ear is checked, no bug but the fuzzy stays.  Any ideas?  Or is this one of those strange neurological symptoms from gluten?  Please don't tell me you need to get ti checked out, because all the doctors will say is "There's nothing wrong, everything's normal." BLAH!
    • Breakfast on the go is always trickiest for me - I go with a whole fruit - banana, apple - or a yogurt, or a small bag of nuts.  Occasionally, I have a couple of hardboiled eggs at my local pret a manger.  Much prefer breakfast at home, where I can make myself an egg and cheese sandwich with avocado on gluten free toast.  Or cereal ;-)
    • thanks for your input, the reason I do the blood test is because I found out my duagther has it recently and she carry dq2 gene,so must be from my husband or me...im in the process waiting for my genetic test back,,by the way,I do have lots of celiac symptom,so it could be gluten sensitiive you said,thanks again.  
    • No I'm in the UK, from what I've been told that's a good thing for gluten labeling and standards compliance. What you and everyone else on here says makes me sense than what the doctors are saying (a confused message at best is what they're giving me, each one with a slightly different version of it). My referral letter is in the post so on theory appointment may not be that far away. I have a load of my favourite Quorn stuff (non-gluten-free version) in the freezer so perhaps using that up may be a good way to proceed for now. I'm out at the moment and torn whether to try chips from a café, in the strict gluten-free future would probably be a no-no but in current situation probably not so bad...
    • I also only really eat one meal a day and always after I get home. I never really feel hungrey. I call it 'Pavlov's dog in reverse'.  I think it comes from so many years of food making me sick. I have gotten to the point where I now at least can eat a sandwhich and some fruit during the day but it wasn't a quick process. When folks get like that it is very important to make sure that one meal has a good amount of both calories and nutrtion.  If your diet is how you describe you are starving yourself.  You need to get yourself used to eating again.  What helped me was carrying a baggie with some nuts and dry fruit with maybe even a handful of gluten free pretzels and always some chocolate baking chips. I just ate couple pieces when I thought of it throughout the day. A little bit of cheese and a couple safe crackers, a piece of fruit or a small tin or individual serving snack pack are also good. You need to get some nutrition during the day so you can feel up to cooking a simple full meal  for dinner. I hope your feeling better soon.
