First does any one know what kind of pop corn is safe?
I was wondering if it is really important that I use gluten free make up, tooth paste, body lotion and what ever else i would use. Just wondering if that could be a reason for all the nauseas. And if it is important what do I use?

For the popcorn, I'd recommend avoiding those prepackaged, pre-seasoned things, and just make your own. Healthier, safer, and more economical too. I'm sure some are gluten-free, but I don't buy them, so can't suggest any. I've heard the microwave ones have some nasty chemicals lining the bags though.

Yes, it is important to use gluten-free toothpaste, skin/hair care products, etc. There are many threads about such products, and I'm sure you'll also get plenty of suggestions too.

Hi Valerie,

For popcorn, I buy Orville Redenbacher plain kernals in the plastic jar. I make it on top of the stove with a little light olive oil and sea salt.

I would definately check and make sure your personal care products are gluten-free. For me, this made a big difference. I use Crest toothpaste, Dove bar soap, Softsoap liquid soap for hand washing. Garnier makes lots of gluten-free products--call the 800# on the bottle to make sure (their customer service is very nice), as does Dove. I use salon haircare products by Brocato--the Spplash line is gluten-free.

A bunch of us here like Everyday Minerals--


They offer samples, so you can play and figure out what colors look best on you. I use their lip glosses, as well as Burt's Bee's Lip Shimmers. :)

I vote for making your own popcorn also. It's easy and if your pan has a glass lid it is fun to watch. You can get air poppers real cheaply also. You can use all kinds of things to season. Herbs, grated cheeses, butter etc.
It is important to use gluten free make up and toiletries. There is a thread on here for a good mineral makeup and if you do a board search you may be able to find info on whether products you like are safe or not.
