Tim Hortons- Calling All Canadians! Lol

12 posts in this topic

Has anyone here eaten the chili from Tim Horton's since going gluten free? Or the potato bacon soup etc?

I know these are gluten free ingredient wise. I understand for some things cross contamination could be a worry but...wouldn't soups be in a closed container and then thrown in that closed pot they keep it in to warm it up? Should their soups and chili be pretty much safe?

I'm going home next week and absolutely want to have my favorite chili lol NOT if i'm gonna get sick though.

I have a wheat allery and had a Timmies coffee and had a severe reaction. I guess the flour is in the air and settles on the cups and every thing else. I would not risk it again.

What about a Shoppers? One of those in the mall? Some have pre-packaged fruit cup thingy's, and all that which are gluten free. However, there is also the option of SOME and not all, but SOME Chinese food take-aways have pure rice noodles, or sauteed vegetables which are gluten-free.

New York Fries does have gluten-free chips, but the seasoning counter does have gluten present, so it depends on where the counter is and where you're getting the chips from.

I THINK it's a Lawton's Drugs in the mall. Like Shoppers but not Shoppers. New York Fries I thought was a good one but then i've heard of people being glutened somehow and figured some part of the buns for the hot dogs got into the oil? i dunno...very nervous. I personally don't even need seasoning on those so I was gonna avoid it but *sighs* There IS a asian place i think tho. Hopefully some plain steamed rice or rice noodles yeah *sighs* So irritating!

A comment from the Peanut Gallery:

There are many posts on this board where somebody insists that they were glutened at such-and-such a place or by such-and-such a product. Many of these posts are by folks newly diagnosed.

Often, these people are in the early stages of healing, and during this phase, the damaged intestine may react to anything. In my early recovery, I had some violent reactions after eating plain boiled white rice. My body was just not always ready for food, gluten-free or not.

So, take these with a grain of salt. Even as a long-term veteran of the diet, when I have an issue (which is very rare), it can be difficult to be certain where the cc came from.

Yeah I wondered about that too...seems i get a tummy ache here and there so maybe i should stay away from it for now...i dunno...maybe i'll wait a while and look at it as...maybe next time i visit i'll try it. I've only been gluten free. Like really putting in the effort to be completely since I found out may 10th. So....i guess i'll bring ziplock baggies of stuff in my bookbag i carry around.

My husband really wants Tim Horton's coffee so i suggested maybe he bring a thermos and get them to fill it to lessen the risk of cups with possible flour particles from the donuts and bagels in them etc. So some things may be more do-able than others.

I was never impressed with Tim's coffee--perhaps I am not really Canadian: my mother was from Minnesota. But I do get Starbucks in my travel mug from the one near my business several times a week. Never had a problem.

Hehehe hey we're all different people with different tastes *shrug* I like both Starbucks and Timmy's. Since living down here all we can get are Starbucks...we miss the fraps though. SO FAR...my husband gets iced coffee during the summer and is fine. We're doing okay without the fraps..hopefully we're not getting glutened by the coffee somehow but I doubt it as ...well..it's just coffee? lol

I eat New York Fries all the time at the mall and have never been glutened. Also Booster Juice (just no Boosters, at least one of them has gluten) and Qoola frozen yogurt.

There's a Lawton's in ours too...are you talking about the Avalon Mall?

The New York Fries at the Avalon Mall is good, because they keep their spices separate. Also you can tell them you have an "allergy to some things in the spices", so they'll be cautious.

Second Cup might have gluten-free baked goods.

    • When it's that high, it almost always means Celiac.  Sure, you can have Crohns, too.  Just like you can have Celiac and diabetes, the common cold or a hang nail.  I wouldn't jump to Chrohns.  I don't think the tTg really has anything to do with Chrohns?  Where did you see that?  Sometimes, a slightly elevate tTg can be elevated from other issues, but >100 is not a " slightly elevated" reading
    • Hi! I'm new here, and I'm looking for some information because I'm having a hard time finding it.  Over Labor Day weekend I got some kind of intestinal bug. I didn't think much of it until the D persisted once a day up til now. I tried a priobiotic but that didn't help much. I have bad anxiety and began to think that I was just anxious and stressed. No fever, no pain, all bloodwork is normal, so no infection or anemia. My mother has 5 siblings and 3 have celiac. One other one had a high result on a blood test but was never officially diagnosed and insists she doesn't have it. So I went to my local health fair and got the ttg-iga test, just in case. My result came back at >100. So I have called and scheduled a visit with a GI for next week. Aside from the recent intestinal issues I have never thought that I had any signs of celiac. I do have dermatographism and have had that since I was 20 (I am 28). I have severe anxiety. I had PUPPPS when I was pregnant with my daughter and it was miserable. It looks much like the skin rashes that celiacs have. Again, didn't think much of it. Because of my anxiety I am terrified that this high blood test is from something else, like crohn's. I don't have diabetes, my liver and thyroid numbers are fine. I think it's much more plausible that this is celiac because of my family history. But my anxiety says "what if it's crohns?" Does anyone have any insight? Is it true that the ttg iga can be elevated from crohns and not celiac? Is >100 pretty definitive of celiac? I didn't know if crohns was the cause if the number would be this high.  I'm just freaked out. 
    • This does say it is for NCGS....so not  for Celiacs.  There is a drug being developed that may actually break down the gluten in the stomach before it hits the intestines.  However, that is still in clinical trials.
    • could be from your neck, or it is, literally, in your head. perhaps a scan is needed.
    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
