Learning To Make The Breads, What About The Meat?
0

7 posts in this topic

The topic title pretty much says it all. I am a huge fan of sandwiches and despite having not been diagnosed for sure yet am on a gluten-free diet. If I don't get to eat sandwiches soon I will cry!! How do I know what deli meats are okay and what aren't? are they all processed? are the slicers contaminated? Where does everyone else buy their meat or is most meat okay? Also cheese, now that I think of it. Is it always gluten-free?

:rolleyes: I'm desperate for my sandwiches!! (= Thanks for any help anyone can give!

Hillshire Farm Lunchmeats are gluten free. They are good. I make a roll-up with them. Lay out the meat, put some cheese inside and roll up. You can also put a layer of lettuce on the outside which is tasty. I absolutely can't stand gluten-free bread so I just avoid it! ha

I use kraft cheese slices in my roll-ups. Also velveeta is gluten-free.

Enjoy!

I live on the Boar's Head Tavern Ham deli meat. You'll have to check which other ones are gluten-free.

Frebey brand deli meats are gluten-free, lactose free and MSG free. It states this on the label. They are sold in most grocery stores in British Columbia. I don't know about anywhere else.

Diestel's lunch meats are gluten-free as well. (To the best of my knowledge, you may consider double checking with the company.)

Thanks everyone for the replies!! I think that the Boars Head and Hillshire Farm brands are available here in Nebraska. Do most of you purchase chicken breast and roasts and such at health food chains? I never realized until the other day that meat even had any gluten in it, but thanks to reading all of your disscussions I've been able to find several sources of gluten in my diet that I didn't realize were there. This board is my most valuable assett and I don't think I would be coping nearly as well without it. Thanks for the advice and if anyone has any more on meat please feel free to add!!

Hormel meat is either gluten free or the gluten is clearly labeled. That includes Oscar Meyer deli meats that are prepackaged.

Yes the slicer gets contaminated from some of the meats and also the scale and the gloves that the workers are wearing. I ask them to change their gloves and put a clean sheet of wax paper on the scale and hope that the person ahead of me got a gluten-free meat. ;)

I try to eliminate any hidden gluten but at some point I think we have to just be realistic. I read soewhere unless we pick the grains ourselves or butcher the animals ourselves, we have to to acknowledge that we will never be able to eliminate gluten entirely but we can make ourselves crazy if we worry about it too much.

I guess what I am saying is I try to do my best and trust God for the rest cause we just never really know where most of our food has been before we get it home.

    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      In light of the studies that found some probiotics that are labeled gluten-free yet tested over 20ppm I wouldn't touch them. Now those would be the powder or pill forms. Yogurt is not affected by that. Since you don't have a problem with dairy then I would say eat some yogurt every day. I like Chobani Greek because it has more kinds of cultures. Remember now that powder or pill forms of probiotics do not come under the gluten-free labeling law. The same for OTC & prescription meds. You need to check every single one of those. There are a few online sites where you can check things like that or ask here but as far as prescription meds -- call the manufacturer EVERY TIME. I also wanted to tell you in case you didn't already know that since celiac is genetic and can present at ANY age then all your first degree relatives need to be tested every 2 years in the absence of symptoms and immediately if symptoms present between the 2 year periods. As far as the digestive enzymes go, I tried Digest Gold for a short time & it really didn't seem to do anything for me however I will say I had a lot of issues going on at the time so I might not know if they helped or not. I decided to quit them in order to take that out of the equation so I could try to pin down what was causing me distress. The fewer things in the mix you know. I have heard people report the same as your consultant said. Some say they helped & some say they didn't. Remember Jammy, you're just in the beginning stages. I KNOW you want to heal & heal FAST. Been there, done that! It's like this: you didn't get sick overnight & you're not going to heal overnight. Patience is the watchword here. It's hard I know! You just want to get on with your life. We can all relate.  Again, I'm going to say to eat foods easy on your gut. WELL cooked foods. No raw carrots, coconut, nuts & stuff like that. Easier on your gut would be nut butters.... peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter etc.... It's sort of like being a baby ---  soft, easy to digest foods. Bone broth is a great healer for you gut & extremely nutritious as well as being easy on the digestion. Here's just one recipe: http://wellnessmama.com/5888/how-to-make-bone-broth/
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Thanks for the tip! Will try that out in the next few days. By the way, has anyone had any joy with probiotics or digestive enzymes in terms of symptom relief/speeding up the healing process? I asked my consultant about this when I saw him last week and he said that some people find them beneficial while others don't, but obviously I'm keen to try anything that may help, with uncomfortable fullness/bloating/gas still being my main issue  - is it worth giving them a go?
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      I realize that this is an old thread but I would just like to say something about label reading. Just because a product says gluten free on the label doesn't mean that you don't have to read any further and can have complete trust in the product.  There are a lot of products that state that they are gluten free on the package and then you find out that they are processed in plants that also produce wheat products. If you are super sensitive, you need to know that information. I am afraid that there is no escaping reading labels in supermarkets unless you know that the company makes it's products in a truly gluten free environment (even then you should read labels because ingredients can and do change, even in products made in gluten free facilities), It's a pain to stand there and read labels but if you are super sensitive, you might just have to do that. For example, I am gluten and lactose intolerant but also sensitive to nuts and sesame. While it may be fine for other gluten intolerant people to eat something that's labeled gluten free which is produced in a gluten free facility that also processes nuts, for me it is not.. 
    • Golden Bell Pepper Soup (Gluten-Free)
      Dipping your spoon into this bell pepper–sweet potato combo is like dipping into a bowl of sunshine. It's stunning—and the perfect antidote to a gloomy winter's day. This soup also freezes well, so if you're not serving a crowd, store the leftovers for a later date (or make a double batch). I like to enjoy this soup accompanied by my Massaged Kale Salad with Spicy Hazelnuts View the full article

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
