I am so angry right now. It seems like the harder I try to stay gluten-free the more I fail. This afternoon i went and got a salad from Subway and then went and bought salad dressing with ingredients that I could actually read, you know all natural stuff. So I am sitting here eating my yummy salad and right when i am done, I read the ingredients again and there is SOY SAUCE in it. How dumb can I be.

I go to all the trouble to tryand eat gluten-free then I fall flat on my face. It is so frustrating.

Then the other night (this one is my fault) I cooked a healthy fish dinner with some good veggies while my husband had some crossiants. When he was cleaning and I was feeding the leftover bread to the dogs, I snuck a piece (it could not have even been a quarter of the whole roll) Then of course 30 minutes later I was sick.

Maybe I should think of that one as a good thing, because I will never cheat like that again, and if I was that sensitive then maybe it because my body is adjusting to a gluten-free lifestyle.

Thanks for reading, I just needed to vent.

On top of all that I'd advise you not to eat anything at all at Subway. Too much cross contamination.

Anything you don't prepare yourself from scratch from known-to-be gluten-free items runs the risk of getting you sick. That's not to say that's your ONLY choice, but remember it's a choice. There's a risk associate with choosing items someone else has control over, but life is a set of calculated risks anyway. Try not to be angry at yourself; we can't know with 100% certainty the outcome of our choices. Just take it as a learning lesson. (I've been gluten-free nearly one and a half years, and still miss "soy sauce" in things before I buy them, on occasion.)
