Staying At Relatives...
0

7 posts in this topic

Okay, we're going on vacation to our relatives house for 4 days...it's not the cleanest house (not dirty either), but has lots of crumbs...what do you bring when you're going for an extended stay to eat? I thought of cereal...but what else?

I'm cheap and I'd rather bring everything I need than have to buy it there.

I eat a lot of fruit and eggs. I either bring my own pan or stick to one of their pans (that is safe for me to use) and am the only one to use it for my stay.

I have read that Teflon pans are unsafe. Why? If you clean them in super hot water and soap, wouldn't that remove gluten?

The problem is that Teflon pans get scratches and gluten can get stuck in the scratches and be hard to remove. I don't know what the amount is that can be left as residue in these scratches but for myself just don't use them anymore. I did, however, use a cast iron pan at my uncle's house and got really sick off of that (they use soy sauce a lot).

I think it's better to be safe than to be sorry...

I bring my own pot, spoon and colander when I travel. Bring along a bag of Tinkyada pasta. Teflon also releases toxic poisons. Isn't there a lawsuit against DuPont now?

I make food ahead of time and freeze it in those ziplock throw away containers. I too bring my own pot, fry pan, and utensils. My daughter is ultra sensitive and therefore all must be gluten-free. I bake an assortment cookies and muffins and bring potato chips and chocolate bars. Not the healthiest but we eat healthy at home.

When I am away for a few days I bring lots of genisoy bars, yogurt, Amy's frozen entrees, rice cakes and peanut butter and some bagged salad. Also, I'll bring a homemade pasta casserole that everybody might enjoy. Good luck.

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
