Going To The Cinema
0

12 posts in this topic

I wasn't sure which forum to put this post in since it's not about recipes or about restaurants. Sorry if this is the wrong place.

My husband has been wanting to go to the cinema since Friday, and I've been putting it off, basically because I had no idea what snack to take with me while I'm on the elimination diet. To me part of going to see a film is having munchies. I basically eat veggies (no corn, and carrots or peppers since they make my throat sore) and meat.

I was thinking.. would it be a bad idea to have a coca cola zero? :-(

Anyone else have a bad experience from cola or any type of diet soda?

Any ideas on interesting snacks I can take? :-)

:) yay movies! My newest favorite gluten-free munchy: Bangkock Sweet Chile Rice Chips by Snapdragon. Our kids love Pirates Booty (but I think it has corn, so double check the ingredients list). For a more healthy choice I love jicama slices. Jicama can be sweet and crunchy and has lots of water in it! Jicama, like carrot, is a root, so I'm not sure your throat will like it.

Instead of cola/soda could you find a more "natural" soda like a ginger ale?

Have fun at the movies!

I haven't had any issues from Coke or any other colas, although to my knowledge so far I don't have any additional food allergies or interferences. I do love Izze sodas though, they're pretty much carbonated water and juice with no additional sweetener.

If you can't do corn, soda is a bad idea due to high fructose corn syrup and regular corn syrup.

Neither of those should be an issue since she mentioned getting Coke Zero. I haven't looked up the ingredients but I am assuming that zero calories = zero corn syrup. There also isn't any corn syrup in the Izze soda, it doesn't have any sweeteners.

No I don't think diet sodas contain corn syrup.. I can't do any sugar or corn.

I also live in sweden, we don't have Izze soda but perhaps there is something close to it :-) Thanks!

Whenever I do have a soda, depending where you are you can find Sierra Mist Natural or Pepsi throwback cola. They are made with real sugar. I also like Crunchmaster 7th Ancient grain lightly salted cracker. It has no corn, no nuts or soy! I'm not sure if you're eating any graines, but this has been the best for me.

Nope no grains.

ah, I missed the "zero" part up there. I myself don't do fake sugars because I cannot stand the taste (splenda and saccharin are the worst, but aspertame sucks too). I wouldn't think such a chemical concoction would be good for an elimination diet, but hey if you don't get symptoms, good on you.

you didn't mention if you're off ALL sugar, such as the sugar in, say, strawberries, or just cane sugar/added sugar. I often substitute blueberries when I get a skittles craving. a handful of nuts or berries or something like that could do for a substitute for movie theatre candy anyway.

I'm off all sugar. Really good suggestion on the berries though, thanks :-) I was thinking of adding rice next but I think it's better to start with fruit... Which makes me wonder, when I add berries, means I can have all berries? or all fruits?

I know the OP isn't drinking soda, but I want to point out that the ingredients in Coke, Pepsi etc. in the US are completely different from the ingredients in Coke, Pepsi, etc. in Sweden. Coke in your country isn't the same as Coke in someone else's country. Just important to keep in mind when giving people advice about specific products. :)

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:  
    • I never worried about cross contamination because i was originally told i was just intolerant. after going gluten free i felt so much better up until this last march. dairy and fructose have been giving me problems but both lactose and fructose test came back negative.  this is what my gi doctor emailed me today 
    • Any place you know of to find more info? Seems like I am still in so much pain/bloat, I am not even sure if I would pick the right 5 foods!
    • Don't freak out worrying about other maladies yet. You would be absolutely amazed at the things that can/will resolve on the gluten free diet. Some take longer than others -- neurological seem to take the longest for most people but really, I guarantee, there will be things you had no idea or expectation of resolving will. There were tons for me and then there were things I sort of "woke up one day" & said, "hey, that's gone and that & that & that". Other, larger things had taken my attention so I hadn't paid attention to the smaller things until...... On the other hand, not everything is related to celiac but I bet you wouldn't find a handful of celiacs who didn't say something very similar to what I said above. Yes, thyroid problems are common with celiac but I'll also tell you there are/have been people on here who were hypothyroid before dx but after being gluten-free for a while they actually went back to normal thyroid numbers. My husband is one (yes, we both are celiac - it happens). He was on synthroid for 20 years or more. Guess what? He's not on it anymore. We've had his thyroid panel done several times since about a year gluten-free & he is no longer hypothyroid. 
    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
