Papa John's

OK - I just noticed an advertisement for Papa John's linked on this site. Did I miss something? Are they carrying gluten-free pizza?

Not that I know of. A while back, we tried a letter-writing campaign to get them to offer a gluten-free crust, but they pretty much blew us off.

Godfathers and Happy Joe's offers a gluten-free pizza crust.

I'm wondering if we should target Papa Murphy's. After all they've been touting keeping their prices down since they don't have ovens, so not having the cost of a special oven might win them over.

Opinions?

They don't have ovens? How do they cook the pizza? Never heard of that brand.

I thought it was odd that a Papa John's ad was on this site. Maybe I was seeing things. LOL

I don't understand the way Internet ads work. I think they sometimes come on from other magical web places.

Papa Murphy is a take and bake at home place. The one by us does have an oven because they will bake them for you for and extra buck or two.

Some places do a take and bake. I can't personally see the appeal.

Websites owners or moderators can't choose the types of ads that appear on the site (except for ads from the site's sponsors). The ads aren't handpicked--basically whatever company (say, Google) provides the ads runs an automatic scan on the website and picks up words, and the ads get matched to that. They do that so the people who are on the website will see ads that might actually interest them, and click on them, and make money for the ad companies.

So a website that has the words "gluten" or "celiac" will get ads from gluten-free bakeries or companies, and multivitamins targeting Celiacs. But we also talk a lot of "pizza" and "cookies" and "bread," etc. and so you're bound to see a regular pizza ad on here every once in awhile. Sucks, but it will happen.

It IS gluten free, but it's only safe if you buy it at the grocery store in a nice vacuum-sealed bag. I went to a DD a few times after going gluten-free, only had the coffee, and couldn't figure out what was wrong ... until it dawned on me (duh) about all the flour in the air from their kitchen! And people who work the counter work in the kitchen too.

We went to a DD tonight to get some Baskin Robbins (pre-packed) ice cream (BR is attached to DD) and to my dismay, they have a CYA allergen warning on their ice cream, so I suffered through the visual display and smells of my favorite donuts for ice cream I can't even risk eating.

    • Celiac Sensitivity?
      For dining out, check out the website: http://Www.findmeglutenfree.com.  They list restaurants with gluten free menu's and options in your area and there are reviews from other celiacs on there to help you figure out the better, safe places to eat.  Great web site!   Although it is optimal to not dine out at first, reality sometimes gets in the way.  I had booked a trip months before I got really sick and would have lost a lot of money if I did not go.  A month after diagnosis, I flew overseas and ate out for dinner only every night.  I ate plain foods but they were well prepared so still quite good. I never got sick.  I was careful and it worked. Luckily, Europe was way more gluten free knowledgeable than the US at that time and still is.  So, it can be done if you are very careful!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Thanks for the reply, melprkr! Feeling like you're still in a swimming pool moving is a good way to put it. It feels kind of like motion sickness, come to think of it, or a really bad hangover. I was curious because my experience of 'brain fog' in the context of thyroid problems feels so different than brain fog caused by gluten, and I couldn't quite figure out how to explain it. Swimming pool comes pretty close, though. Hope you feel better soon as well!
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      Brain fog is a common symptom.  I had a hamburger patty from a local restaurant and am suffering the effects.  Sometimes mine is bad and sometimes it is mild.  This one feels mild, provided I am not "glutened" again.  I have the exact same feelings when I am contaminated.  I actually had 2 good days this week to ony have to go back through this again.  The first day is just tired and want to sleep, but as each day goes on it seems like all I can do to concentrate and do anything.  TV is OK but for me just standing up or moving sometimes makes me dizzy.  Luckily I don't have the nausea but even sitting still I feel like I am in a swimming pool moving.  You know kind of like when you were a kid and you got in the pool or went roller skating but then got out and and you still felt like you in the pool or skating?  The anxiety and the depression is the worst.  I am taking things to help with it but it doesn't always help.  Only thing that seems to help sometimes is just going in to my room and laying there and not moving and just going to sleep.   It will pass.  Just be cautious about everything.  I have opted to let my family know that I will bring my OWN food when we have gatherings.  I don't mind being the odd man out because I am already the odd ball.  One thing I have learned and that is people mean well but mistakes happen and we are the ones who have to pay the price.   Hope you feel better soon.
    • gluten intolerance, dairy intolerance and fructose
      Look into The Paleo Approach by Sara Ballentyne, PhD.  Great resource and will probably answer your questions.  I have the same problem. You have to really read labels.  The only coconut milk I can use is an organic canned one.  Others have too many ingredients that are problematic.  For now, stay with meat and vegetables as someone else has recommended.  If rice works for you, great.  If not, winter squash is good.  The diet change is overwhelming at first but then it starts to make sense.  The one good thing about an intolerance versus allergy is the possibility of someday being able to add it back into your diet once your gut has healed.
    • Anyone experience brain fog like this?
      I went gluten free about a month ago, and was finally feeling *great* last week when wham -- my well-meaning Dad cooked me dinner and forgot to check the ingredients on the fish sauce he used. The upside of being glutened for the first time is that, after a couple weeks of feeling good, I feel like I can discern the symptoms a lot better now. I've noticed that the worst part, aside from the nausea, is the "brain fog," but I'm curious if my experience of brain fog is the same as or similar to what other people are feeling. For me, it becomes almost physically painful to concentrate on anything. If I try to read a book, or watch a TV show, it makes me feel dizzy, overwhelmed, and nauseous. For a couple days, I feel like all I can do is try to stay still and do as little as possible while I wait it out. It feels similar to anxiety, but not quite the same, and none of the usual tricks for getting through a panic attack help. Do any of you experience brain fog in a similar way? Where it basically makes you feel sick to try and concentrate on anything, even fun and relaxing things?

      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.
