#637860 What's Your Favorite gluten-free "mainstream" Meal?

Posted by modiddly16 on 08 September 2010 - 04:15 AM

I like to make taco soup, buffalo chicken baked potatoes, steak, rotisserie chickens and stir fry all the time! I also love breakfast for dinner :) I think its easy to sneak by those gluten eaters...at least, I know it is for my gluten eater because I do all the cooking :D

#637589 Udi's gluten-free Bagels And Severe Nausea?

Posted by modiddly16 on 07 September 2010 - 05:18 AM

There is a thread on here that discusses this. You're not alone. You will, however, get bombarded by people on this thread telling you that you have to have another intolerence aside from gluten. I don't have any other intolerances and am just convinced that despite Udi's being a trusted gluten free company that I love...I cannot handle their products.

#631318 Too Quick Of A Reaction?

Posted by modiddly16 on 13 August 2010 - 03:51 AM

When I was first diagnosed and still not healed, I'd have a reaction within 20 minutes...but I also wasn't technically "officially" dianosed and it was long enough ago that we all still thought Rice Krispie treats were safe (they are not!) so it's not too soon. Now a reaction for me, depending on how much I injest is pretty slow.

#628609 "glutened" For First Time

Posted by modiddly16 on 03 August 2010 - 03:55 AM

I've been gluten free for 6 1/2 years and I can't count how many times this has happened to me. One week, I was on a garlic bread kick...I had my Against the Grain bread, butter spread and McCormick's garlic bread powder....little did I know that had bread crumbs in it!!! Seasonings can be very tricky!! I hope you feel better

#611790 Grrr...wegmans Hunt Valley Maryland

Posted by modiddly16 on 20 May 2010 - 03:23 AM

Oh, that totally stinks. I'm so sorry she and you had to go through that. Wegman's is usually really good for the gluten free community. Hopefully they will be more careful in the future.



I think its great that Wegeman's is offering you that kind of compensation and while it's really unfortunate that your child and yourself have gotten so sick...I think we, as celiacs, have the responsibility to read the labels even if its advertised gluten free. I've been in a lot of stores, including this particular Wegeman's, that have GLUTEN FREE signs but not all the products on that display are gluten free. It's a pain but it's better to be safe than sorry. I really hope all of you start to feel better soon!!!

#608987 I Can't Commit To Gluten Free Without Some Sweets!

Posted by modiddly16 on 05 May 2010 - 03:44 AM

You can't find any gluten free sweets? Sweets is what gluten free does best...I've never had a problem finding gluten free desserts anywhere that sells gluten free food. Granted, sometimes you have to make them yourself but cookies and brownies are really so easy to make. You really need to stop going to cinnabun and all that and start being healthy or you're really going to do some serious damage!

#606411 Your Significant Other

Posted by modiddly16 on 23 April 2010 - 03:56 AM

My boyfriend and I live together and our kitchen is whatever. I do the majority of the cooking, with no complaints from him...and I tend to make meals that are gluten free. However, just because its gluten free doesn't mean you have to cook any differently than you would normally, it's easy to avoid gluten containing items when you eat shrimp, chicken, meat, etc... Our kitchen isn't gluten free strictly but my boyfriend does an amazing job at cleaning up on a regular basis if he has anything containing gluten. I don't have separate pots and pans either, pans I typically use aluminum foil as an extra precaution and pots/dishes/utensils get double washed. First by hand and then in the dishwasher.

I know I'm in the minority with this and a lot of people have separate items but I don't. I've noticed that if your significant other loves you and supports you in general, going gluten free won't be as challenging as it seems.

#500627 Homeless Celiacs

Posted by modiddly16 on 14 January 2009 - 03:57 PM

I'm not trying to be insensitive here....but if you're homeless do you really care about the fact that you're a celiac. I mean if you're homeless...wouldn't you be more concerned with just eating in general...I don't know. I thought about this once before when I was visiting Atlanta and saw a bunch of homeless people. I just think if I was homeless...I'd probably worry about just eating in general. I think when y ou're homeless, your body might just react a lot different...I imagine when you're homeless you just learn to adjust and your body is a lot different
