M&M Meats (For Canadians)

8 posts in this topic

I went into M&M meats yesterday and asked if they could help me find something gluten free to throw on the BBQ. Well they were lovely, the lady went into the back and printed up a list of 170 gluten free items carried by the store.

I had a few different types of kabobs and the gourmet stuffed potatoes yesterday afternoon and felt great! I only had a few bites of eat item because I wasn't super hungry but I would now feel confident buying some more food from them.

I picked up:

maple salmon skewers (maple flavour was too strong in my opinion)

marinated BBQ pork kabob (very nice)

marinated buffalo chicken kabob (boring)

gourmet stuffed potatoes (pretty good)

loaded baked potato soup

sirloin burgers

strawberry fruit juice bars (yum!)

They also had these little foil BBQ trays called grill buddies (I'm sure I've seen them elsewhere) that you can take with you so you can grill your food on a possibly contaminated grill or maybe to have someone grill a gluteny item on your clean grill at home.

That's great!!! I had been wondering about their food as well.

And those grill thingies sound wonderful. We are very new to the gluten-free diet and last week I grilling my son's hot dog on a piece of aluminum foil, but it didn't work that great and it took quite a bit longer than our hot dogs which were cooked right on the grill.

Thanks for the information!

I also picked up some Rotisserie flavoured chicken wings. They are gluten free, and are fantastic!

I read on another website somewhere that their honey garlic wings are gluten free, but when I went to go pick some up, the package said "may contain wheat", so I didn't buy it, and I'm sensitive to things cross contaminated, so I didn't want to take a chance!

I'm also glad to see the burgers are safe. Over the summer I brought President's Choice sirloin burgers, it didn't say on the package anything about fillers, but apparently beef extract isn't gluten free. I was sick for 3 days after that. Never buying PC burgers again.

I buy pre-made and frozen burgers from CostCo and FreshCo. They have only one ingredient: beef. I haven't tried the M&M burgers lately, but we have bought a few things there from their gluten free list.

    • It sounds like you're doing great. That's amazing that your anxiety has decreased like that. You're obviously doing something really good for your health. With the other things I'm sure they will get better in time. After I gave up gluten I had a bad year but overall it got better. Things like anxiety and insomnia massively improved over time with being gluten free. However, going Paleo (which you are on your way to with the no dairy too) really helped my anxiety, as did running and self-taught acupressure. In particular I found processed gluten free foods were awful for my mood. I know you have to find your own way but I really want to encourage you to see how you feel without that if you haven't already. I also can't afford therapy but when I did have it, that helped too but just being well, gives you the chance to sort your own thoughts and feelings out even without a therapist. Good luck
    • Thank you so much guys. Reading that last response and those from forum members who seemed to be mind-bogglingly sensitive to gluten at times helps me feel like less of a freak  Perhaps worse than the symptoms themselves was my fear that I'm the only person on earth who has gone through this and that if it continues, I will end up with all of my friends and family washing their hands of me because it would look to them like I'm the only one with this and so I must be crazy. It's really good to hear that the sensitivity can go down too. I've been holding onto this idea through the tough times, reminding myself that I also had really bad hayfever for a few years, and asthma at a different time and they both got better.  It has been a whole month since I had a bad reaction to gluten. It has also been two weeks since I even had a small reaction and I'm feeling SO much better. I'm still going to take every precaution I can but this feels worlds away from how it was. At my most risk averse, I had a day on holiday where I only ate bananas and avocados because I could eat them without them having been touched by human hands, even my own! (This was straight after getting sicker and sicker and hunting down what it was that made me ill. I found the refill bottles of soap in the house where I was staying and read that they had wheat in them - not an airborne reaction I imagine but when I washed my hands to prepare food it was probably contaminating my food. Plus because I didn't speak the language, I couldn't be sure the new soap I bought was gluten free.) Now, I am still avoiding environments with lots of gluten and staying clear of grains, but I have reintroduced rice using the food challenge method as directed by my dietician (since I understand that rice is, according to Dr Fasano, the lowest risk of gluten contamination of all the grains) and I am building my weight back up. My Paleo+Fasano diet has been assessed by a registered dietician to include every nutrient and micronutrient that I need so I guess having a really good diet is helping too. My husband has been able to see also that the last time he cooked gluten in the house was the last time I got ill. So it is reassuring for him to see that the sacrifice he is making is making such a difference to me. I also took the advice about new cooking utensils - thanks! I have my fingers crossed for me. I want this better health to continue but right now I'm happy to know that there is a break in the clouds and to know that I can feel like me again. A lot of the steps I have taken to avoid gluten would be seen by some as over the top but I can say that for me, when I introduced these steps, that's when I stopped getting reactions and it's all worth it. Good luck to everyone, sensitive or not, who gets into a bad place with managing their reactions. Hang on in there!        
    • Hello all  I have been living gluten free now for 6 months, as directed by my family doctor after a 6 week elimination diet revealed that I may be celiac or gluten sensitive. I was tested by blood work,  which showed nothing, and am awaiting a specialist to get a biopsy done. I am no where close to getting into see her as it is cased as a non emergency. I have been constantly having bowel problems, rashes all over my body, low iron, weight fluctuations, no energy, depression  and anxiety now for 6 years. Have been a huge nuisance(imo) to my doctor requiring constant antibiotics for this,  creams for this "mystery rash" and either laxatives for constipation that would sometimes go on for over a week to diarrhea that would keep my home- no in between . It hasn't been easy, especially whenever doctors are so quick to blame all symptoms as mental illness. Even though I have continuously told them I feel my issues are something simple...  not a mental illness. Anyways long story short, after going gluten free I have had somewhat Nnormal bowel functions, less rashes around my stomach, been able to cut back drastically on my depression medications and anxiety meds, and energy has taken a huge improvement  which all is great! But .... I am constantly HUngry have gained 20 lbs and can no longer fit into most of my clothes. This is really bothering me because I am afraid I am approaching a weight problem.  At only 5'5" weighing 165lbs is large to begin with. Especially whenever I have two children and have only EVER weighed this much while being pregnant with them. I am 26 years old and just tired of not being myself. I am physically healthy and just would like my body to act it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I said I am only 6 months into my journey and have definitely re exposed myself to gluten (accidently) many times in between. Much love. 
    • I'm not sure I just had the endoscopy, and I've had a  songram. 
    • Thanks and I'm seeing a doctor in three months may have to make it sooner.    Thanks for all the replies.
