Rachel Ray

16 posts in this topic

Today I was kinda watching the Food Network ( I watch it all day ) its always on in the backround. I kinda keep one ear on whats on the tv and whats going on in my house.

Rachel was on tv today at her usual time here 230 pm. She was making one of her famous stoups. I dont even know which one it was.

She always talks about the broth that you can buy in the stores already made for a great time saver.

Today, however, she was talking about her beef broth and she mentioned that the broth was gluten free!

I have never heard her or anyone else on the Food Network do that. I was so impressed!! It seems we are making a difference with our letters and such.

I just had to share this!! :)

Thats great! I am hoping as the years pass that celiac will be more recognized. So far this group is about the only thing thats making me feel normal lately, (recently diagnosed). Although I was in wendy's the other day, while waiting at the counter for my food a woman came in and started ordering the bunless burger, saying she had allergies, so on and so on. It was nice to see that I'm not the only person making some poor teenager behind the counter at wendy's life hell. :blink: I'm hoping as someone mentioned before here that rachael ray or someone would do a gluten free segment on their show, that would be wonderful!

I watch Rachel Ray all the time and yes, she does mention when certain ingredients are gluten free, and it usually the chicken and beef broths that she uses. Occasionally she'll mention that a veggie dish is gluten free or something like that. I like her show.

I normally can't stand her, especially on her show $40 a day; I mean c'mon, you can't have an orgasm over every morsel you put in your mouth. But I may have to change my mind on her. <_<

OMG jillian! I feel the same way about that show. She absolutely loves everything she eats. My b/f said what would she do if the dish was gross? spit it out? she does that on her regular show too.. 30 minute meals.

yeah, Rachel Ray eats on $1200 a month. I despise shows about eating out. Anthony Bourdain in particular - chef, food critic, and ugly American. I guess he maintains that refined palate by smoking 3 packs a day.

I watched her show yesterday I think it was with oprah on it. She is annoying isn't she? She was a nervous wreck though, and trying way too hard, I had to change the channel I couldn't stand to watch someone crack so badly!

I watched her new talk show for the first time today and she definitely seemed way nervous, but she seemed to do better as the show went on. By the end of the show, I was enjoying it. I like the format. I like that she still does a lot of food stuff, but isn't boxed into something like the 30 minutes or the $40 and I like that she does other fun things. I thought the CSI set visit was hilarious. I've always been lukewarm on her cooking shows, but I think I'll watch it.

Remember what a mess Dr. Phil was the first couple weeks on his show? I didn't think he would make it past the first season.

Has anyone ever noticed that on $40 a day she totally shortchanges the tip ALL THE TIME? She bugs me...so I have to find fault with her. Also, I find it odd that she mentions her broths are gluten-free as all of her products are "made up". I saw on "FOOD NETWORK UNWRAPPED" (I watch too much tv, okay) that she doesn't advertise the products she actually uses so there is someone who is employed to create and design the wrapping and packaging for all her products (to cover the real product). So...is she implying all broths are gluten-free? I think its actually not as great as it may seem!

lol, ya me too...You know the episode I watched she really was just spazing out at first with her nervousness, it was just sad to watch! I did start to enjoy it after oprah and her sat down to chat and eat the food they made. If you think about it though, she had her first week on her new talkshow, and the big O was her guest that day, I would have been nervous too.

I too saw a show where she mentioned the broth is gluten free and I was puzzled because she didn't show the brand & that's important to me, of course. It gave me impression too that had I not known, I would have thought that all broths are gluten-free.

I think FN should run a nice half hour show maybe once or twice a week about cooking gluten-free. Basic 101 gluten-free receipes and tips, hints and info like how to avoid cross contamination, etc.

I can't stand her. I don't get her appeal at all! My friends love her and will force me to watch her - she doesn't even make anything all that impressive and her cook books stink! :blink:

I like her show, "30 Minute Meals", and even her other shows on the FN, although those I haven't seen very often.

I don't care for her new show so far--maybe it'll grow on me, or she'll settle into it (and settle down some!) :ph34r:

    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!  
    • I also think that the HPV/Gardasil vaccine triggered something in my body. I had some Celiac symptoms many years before this vaccine but I felt ok. I was physically very active. However, after I received the third dose as well, I began having more problems including a more persistant pain, overall body weakness, lack of concentration, hair loss, etc.
    • OK so been to the doctor, they've sped up my referral and I should get the appointment booking form in the post shortly. They've said stay off the gluten until I have a date for the appointment then in the weeks leading up to it go back on - thoughts? Did my bit of sport last night which was a great relief to be free of any illness-related thoughts for an hour or two; didn't think I'd have the energy at the start but soon got going and was OK so that's a plus I seem to be getting some strange symptoms at the moment that have only happened since trying to remove gluten, do these sound familiar to anyone? dry forehead, just starting to go red \ itchy in places. Treating with E45-type cream tender scalp and sides of head, almost like a pulling feeling and a bit sensitive to touch. Scared this one matches the symptoms of GCA, a particularly nasty autoimmune disease that can lead to blindness 
      Edit: having said that just found this thread and funny enough did wash my hair this morning...
      http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/50920-sores-on-scalp/ one eye watering and associated fuzzy vision at times, trying to reassure myself it isn't blurred vision due to the point above sometimes bit of a lump in throat sensation, seems to come and go Been reading that some people can't handle rice - I was OK with it whilst eating gluten but have been having it for lunch each day and seem to get worse around 4-5pm so could that be a culprit? How long after coming off gluten would I be able to say I'm at a baseline to know if feeling ill is down to "glutening" vs. blaming it on the body adjusting to the change in (lack of) gluten in food?
    • First of all, welcome to the forum! it's good to have you here. Secondly, I can really relate to the fatigue portion.  it really hadn't affected me until everything hit the ceiling medically for me.  I was constantly tired all the time, and waking feeling rested in the morning. Prone to depression and anxiety, definitely.  It drove me nuts for those first few weeks.  That's when I decided to try going off the gluten to see what happened.  I still dealt with the depression, anxiety at crazy levels, and inability to focus/concentrate, but it had gotten progressively better.  The anxiety got so bad I would have panic attacks in public areas which only ramped up the anxiety because people saw what was happening.  I would encourage you and your doctor to do a full Celiac panel before you decide to try the gluten free diet.  I had my blood work done after I was off gluten for about two months or so.  Thankfully, my levels were still high to register at least a gluten sensitivity.  Since going off gluten for almost a year now, things have started to finally appear "normal".  Whatever normal means for me now.  As I am healing from the 30 years of glutenizing, I combined both natural methods with the medical methods.  If you are interested in the different avenues of natural methods, I would be willing to share with you.  I will be praying for you as you go through this journey. Let me assure you, you are not alone in this journey.  Depending on family dynamics, they can be a great source of support.  This forum is also a great place to bounce thoughts or concerns off of.  Good luck.
