#906382 Do You Have Dreams (Nightmares) About Being Glutened?

Posted by larry mac on 18 February 2014 - 08:25 AM

That's a classic NoGlutenCooties!

 

Here's one that might be called a Freudian slip in reverse. I dreamed I was at a restaurant/bar/club, and a beautiful, sexy woman sat down and started talking to me. Flirting in a very provocative way. She had a short dress on, and I started gently touching her legs. Then I said "your skin is so beautiful, feels like rolls"! Then I woke up.

 

I can't even have a wet dream without lusting after real bread instead!

#904910 Man I Was Bumbed!

Posted by larry mac on 03 February 2014 - 02:48 PM

Hubbs made some dip for "The Game" He went out and got the gooey cheese, some burger , used some of my canned Salsa and Pickled Peppers. I looked at the can of gooey cheese and yup corn in it... There was a bowl right by me! I said you guys don't know how bad I want to dig into this! I am moving it out of my reach! Lol Hubbs was nice and sent it home with the kids. Whew!! I was sick the day before. I was going to make something I could eat and share at game time. But it just didn't happen. Just a lil something I miss!! I handled it tho :)

Why not use Velveeta? It doesn't contain any corn ingredients. BTW, this isn't a "Coping with Celiac Disease" issue, per se. It is a  "Other Food Intolerance and Leaky Gut Issues" topic. Just saying.

#873235 Five Guys

Posted by larry mac on 07 June 2013 - 01:56 PM

At the risk of bringing grief on my head, I'd like to express an opinion.

 

I'm well aware of the "heebie jeebies" one can get in an eating establishment, bordering on feeling like a panic attack is imminent. Once you get that "unsafe" feeling, and just know that you're gonna get glutened if you eat there, it's impossible to ignore it. 

 

However, for me, I don't think there would be enough gluten molecules transferred from the glove to the entire grease and fries filled fryer to contaminate a few fries. If that's all I was worried about, I'd gladly just minimize my fries intake, in order to enjoy a tasty gluten free cheeseburger. Full disclosure, I'm not super sensitive. So there's that to consider. I have gotten deathly ill several times. So I'm pretty careful, and hardly ever eat out. I am partial to a good burger though.

 

best regards, lm

#787250 Celiac Means No Coffee?

Posted by larry mac on 12 April 2012 - 08:09 PM

The first thing I do in a case like this (outlandish claim) is see what they're selling. It doesn't take long. Sarah the healthy home economist is selling product links and advertising.

"Please contact Sarah at thehealthyhomeeconomist.com for a Media Kit.

Please Note: The Healthy Home Economist is part of the Real Food Media online magazine. We have paid sponsors. Unfortunately, this precludes us from doing unpaid promotions or reviews for free product."

Ie, she doesn't talk about anything she's not getting paid for.

The exciting and important news about a so-called coffee/gluten connection was revealed to her at a paleofx12 conference ( an alternative health and nutrition "disipline" based on evolutionary study (or somesuch) where she saw dr. david clark speak. He's not really a doctor, he's a chiropractor. Thus the titles of functional this and functional that in his bio. He's also selling stuff. Books and whatnot.

There's always people out there trying to make a living duping the gullible.

Try not to be the gullible!

#747804 Forum Pet Peeves

Posted by larry mac on 15 November 2011 - 10:55 AM

Threads that start with the declaration "fill in the blank" is NOT gluton free, with no more justification than "it had to be because everything else I ate yesterday was safe". And the product clearly contains no gluten ingredients.

Another one. "The person on the phone wouldn't confirm it was gluten-free". So it must have gluten, right?

#685889 What Does Everyone Eat For Breakfast?

Posted by larry mac on 22 March 2011 - 05:38 PM

Monday - Friday it's a quick bowl of Chex with 2% milk. And coffee of course (with Truvia).

Weekends might be either buttered toasted Udi's bread, or toasted Udi's bagel, with jam or agave syrup. And perhaps eggs & bacon. Or breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, and homemade salsa.

#675255 Are Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Gluten Free Or Not?

Posted by larry mac on 14 February 2011 - 02:25 PM

I think we drifted a little from the Reeses topic. And I certainly didn't intend to offend anyone.

But, they might get that impression from people having reactions to labeled gluten free products that are made in a completely gluten-free facility, for instance. The manufacturers may be asking themselves, what do we have to do to satisfy all these people?

#675169 Are Reese's Peanut Butter Cups Gluten Free Or Not?

Posted by larry mac on 14 February 2011 - 09:59 AM

Dear Shauna,

What a terrific post! I wish I had your elegance and graciousness. I thought you explained your particular situation, or category, very well. Yeah, I can see where if you tried just the "reading labels" thing, and it doesn't work for you, you have to take more extreme care.

I guess I feel like I don't want newbe's to automatically think they have to do that. You know, get the wrong impression from the more extreme posts on this forum. Everyone should do exactly what you did. Try just reading labels, and if that doesn't work try something else.

I don't want everyone to think all Celiacs are extreme nut-cases. I feel like I'm fighting for some moderation and common sense sometimes. I apologize if I inadvertainly step on some toes along the way. I will try to be more sensitive (no pun intented) to the more sensitive here.

best regards, lm

#668633 Develop Celiac Disease At 35

Posted by larry mac on 18 January 2011 - 07:51 AM

Diagnosed at 55, after 2 years sick and three doctors.

Am convinced the "trigger" was this chain of events:

1) Got bad cold.

2) Went to Doctor, got antibiotics.

3) Cold got better, but got major bad GI problems.

4) Went back to Doctor, diagnosed with C-Diff., got powerfull antibiotics to fight C-Diff.

5) C-Diff cured, but GI symptoms, albiet milder than C-Diff, started probably a few months later and continued 2 years until diagnosed with Celiac by blood tests, endoscopy, and biopsies. Got miraculously better same day went on gluten-free diet.

#645557 Rice Bloody Krispies

Posted by larry mac on 11 October 2010 - 06:19 PM

One really has to read the ingredients carefully for the words wheat, barley, rye, and malt. That goes for every product you buy at the store. It becomes automatic after a while.

#643022 Made In A Facility That Also Processes Wheat

Posted by larry mac on 29 September 2010 - 01:53 PM

I use those foods or products and haven't had a problem in almost four years. Obviously I'm not an extremely sensitive Celiac.

#636307 Canyon Bakehouse Hamburger Buns

Posted by larry mac on 01 September 2010 - 01:15 PM

I've tried many brands of gluten-free hamburger buns, and these are the best so far IMO. Nice look, kind of a swirly, kaiser top. Wheat, soy, dairy & nut free. 100% whole grains. Lots of interesting ingredients. Contains eggs. From Loveland, CO.

#632494 Taco Bell

Posted by larry mac on 17 August 2010 - 01:56 PM

Please correct me if I'm mistaken, but I think Taco Bell taco meat (not the so-called street tacos meat) contains oats. Probably as part of the thickener. Since oats can be contaminated with wheat, they might be reluctant to call it gluten-free.

Personally, I think the level of potential contamination resulting from this small an amount of oats would be inconsequential (to me). You'd probably get more gluten from the workers handling the flour tortillas.

I handle bread and gluten items on a daily basis (preparing food for my wife). Haven't been glutened once. YMMV.
