Spaghetti Sauce Settles It
0

18 posts in this topic

After eating gluten-free rice noodles last night with the most delicious tomato sauce on the planet and getting sick, I was confused as ever. Sick? Over spaghetti? :o

I looked at the ingredients of the tomato sauce. Sure enough: soybean oil. I guess the dilemma over whether it's soy that makes me sick in addition to casein is solved, but I just want to cry. I feel like there's so many things I can't eat that it's just ridculous. I'm really depressed and frustrated. :(

But *hopefully* if I go soy-, dairy- and gluten-free, I'll feel better. I just hope.

Just thinking about it now and that also could explain why I sometimes react to potato chips -- fried in soybean oil.

I sympathize. When I realized I reacted to the oil, it seemed to take a lot of possible foods out of the equation. I'm a vegetarian and my favorite local veggie restaurant uses soybean oil exclusively. They only have one entree that can be made without soy, it seems, and it isn't nearly as good as any of the many other items I've had over the years.

I essentially go to restaurants with cuisines that believe in olive oil and look at me with an offended expression if I ask what is soy free.

What brand of sauce was it? I have this problem too, I always feel gassy, bloated and sick after eating rice pasta and sauce, and its usually because I can't find any sauces that dont use soybean oil! Bertolli sauces actually use olive oil instead of soybean oil, which would make sense, helloooo Italian!! A few Classico ones are also soy-free, as well as one from Whole Foods 365 brand-I believe the Roasted Red Pepper ones. I LOVE the Prego Meat one, but alas it gives me a stomachache : (

The spaghetti sauce is actually a department store brand -- Wegmans. It just has this most delicious taste that I've never had in a spaghetti sauce. I'm sure I can find some soy-free substitutes, but this one just really stinks because it's soooooooo good.

OK, are there any potato chips that are gluten-free, casein-free and soy-free? Lay's has those sunflower chips. Are those OK? I'm just looking for a new late afternoon snack other than fruit, which I eat for breakfast. I've also been using potato chips when we're out and have to grab a quick bite to eat for Thomas. It makes it so much easier to pass up on french fries.

Also, what oil would you use at home for frying? Vegetable oil has soy in it, right? Peanut oil?

I don't eat chips or fry things. My reaction to high fat foods is kinda nasty sometimes. What you have to do is read labels. Soy is a major allergen and so has to be listed on food labels if it is present. If it is in chips or a particular oil, it would say.

For snacks beyond fruit, I use popcorn (microwaved without oil), Larabars, or Glutino breakfast bars. Sometimes if I'm really hungry I will nuke a potato & put some refried beans, bean dip, or salsa on top. I used to use corn thins and spread them with a little hummus or something. But I found those things to be too addictive to keep around the house.

Hi!

I love the Lays chips, I eat them whenever I find myself needing a carb b/c I am sick of eating salads all the time or if I am on the go. They run a close second to my all time favorite Cape Cod Potato Chips-I am a native Cape Codder! Do you like corn chips? I always have a bag of tostitos or comprable corn chip on hand to munch on too.

For frying, do you mean making fried foods?? Can't say I fry a lot at all, though recently my sisters boyfriend who is a chef made me fried scallops with rice flour and corn starch. Soo Good.

I had the same reaction I thought to soy but it ended up being the oil only. Lays staxx are made with sunflower oil and they are gluten free.

Another good snack is Ener-g caramel apple bars, they are really good.

You could use peanut oil or coconut oil. Coconut oil is expensive but it has health benefits to it.

I've been using unrefined coconut oil for everything lately! It's very good, and it doesn't always taste sweet, just depends on what you are using it for/with.

I used to only use Classico sauces, until I stopped soy too! There are a few that are soy free, and I usually get those, they're made with olive oil.

I like to have a rice cake with fresh ground peanut butter for an afternoon snack. Not quite chips, but still crunchy. Sometimes I'll put a little jelly on it too, and it's kinda a mini pbj!

Woah, wait a minute. Diet Mountain Dew lists brominated vegetable oil as an ingredient. Does that mean soy? Pepsi does not list it as an allergen on its Web site.

If they included soy, it would have to be listed on the label because of the federal labeling law for major allergens.

    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)

    • I had a biopsy done (2 samples, 1 on a lesion and 1 next to lesions), and also more bloodwork done. All came back negative. However, I only had been eating gluten for 2 weeks prior, and it took a week of gluten for lesions to reappear. I also used a topical steroid off and on (1x a week approximately) for a month or so before testing. The dermatologist told me to stay off gluten though, and said she wants to do more allergy testing (her next open testing appt is in 6 months!!). I know I'm not the DR, but I dont think it's allergies...without a doubt, my skin begins clearing about 2 weeks post gluten-free diet...this is without changing anything else in my lifestyle. And when i had to go back on gluten before my biopsy, it took about a week, but did reappear. Now, about 2 weeks post biopsy and gluten-free, it had begun clearing until i worked outside all day in heat, humidity,  sweat etc and it has definitely irritated all the places that were healing (not new breakouts, just aggravating what was going away!). All that being said, i have a friend who is an MD( who's hobby is to attend conferences on skin conditions!), and she has told me that without a doubt, I have celiac/DH.  I think I just feel like I need test results and paperwork to show for it...especially to show family members who are unsupportive (gross understatement!) of the extreme changes I've had to make!
    • Sorry ! I have never cruised before.  Just wanting to follow your topic.  Good luck! Have a great,  safe vacation.  
    • Hi there, I hope you're all having a good day! I'll be heading on a week-long Carnival cruise shortly and had a few questions: -What is the tipping protocol? I've prepaid gratuities, but feel like the food request will warrant something extra. Should I tip the headwaiter? Hostess? Regular waiter? Chef? Those cooking at, say, the sandwich or pasta bars? If so, how much is appropriate, and should I tip at the beginning of the cruise, the end, or split it up? -It looks like the main dining room will be closed during lunch hours on most days. Any recommendations on safe bets for midday meals? I'll be on the Carnival Sunshine, for what that's worth. Thank you so much for any information you can share!
