What Do You Eat?
0

8 posts in this topic

Just realized, with a bunch of us together, maybe we can help each other find safe food or share brands that we use regularly. :-)

So, again, starting off.

What works for us:

Field Day Mediterranean sea salt

Bariani Olive oil

Ancient Harvest Quinoa - in the 25 pound bags - grain for the 1 pound boxes are shipped to the USA and packaged here. The 25 pound bags are shipped straight from Bolivia.

What we're checking out:

Some beans ordered online from Rancho Gordo

Nuts in the shell, ordered online from anuts.com

Madhava agave nectar (makes me feel a little off, but might be okay for my daughter)

And that's it, really. Everything else is fresh food from our garden, local farmers, or local ranches.

It's taken us a little over a year to get here, and I'm still screwing it up a bit, because I am not sure all the time what's safe for us. My daughter may have some fructose issues (which will kill all agave nectar hopes, obviously). I might have a couple intolerances on top of allergies. We still get reactions, even on the above diet, where we only eat food from our own kitchen.

But it's slowly improving, so at least it seems to be going in the right direction. :)

sorry ... i realize this is a really old thread, but i am trying to find out if anuts.com has cross contamination issues.  the OP said they were checking it out ... and so am i.

 

i emailed anuts.com asking about gluten contamination and was told this in my first email:

 

 -------- Great question. I did a simple internet search on peanuts and they are gluten free. The roasted in shell peanuts are dry roasted so nothing is added to them.

 

i responded and asked the gentlemen - specifically - if the peanuts were processed on equipment that also processes wheat.  this is his reply:

 

---------- You will be buying them in bulk. That is how we sell them. So we use a scoop (that is washed) and we scoop the nuts into a zip lock bag. We do have dairy in our plant (and of course other nuts) but no wheat.

 

so i am no closer to getting an answer and they seem to be pretty clueless.  they also sell trail mix and flavored popcorns.  in my experience there is a high risk of cross contamination.

 

i have gotten glutened from ordering supposedly gluten free nuts from nuts.com so am very leery of placing an order with anuts.com.    

 

has anyone gotten a straight answer from anuts.com or spoken to anyone from there that really understands the issue?

Planter's. If there is any gluten they will be labeled. If they are processed in a facility that also processes gluten containing grains, it will be labeled. I eat their cashews and cocktail peanuts all the time.

I had communications with anuts in which they said that their facility if gluten free.  I looked at the ingredients in their trail mixes and flavored popcorn and I didn't see any gluten.  Your post does not specifically state that your contamination issues are with gluten only.  For extra assurance, you can buy in shell nuts.

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
