In Topic: Does Anyone Else Get Sick From Eating Bananas?

20 April 2011 - 04:08 PM

I have (had?) problems with bananas too. Not crippling stomach pain, but a serious belly ache that makes me nauseous and thinking I'd feel better if I just threw up (TMI sorry).
I can eat them baked in things or fried with no problems.

I kind of wonder if this problem may have been fixed after almost 3 years of being gluten free. I haven't been brave enough to try.

In Topic: Oats At A Gluten Free Bakery

01 December 2010 - 07:27 AM

A designated gluten free kitchen and bakery have opened in my town. I was so excited because I can't seem to eat anywhere and trust that the food is safe. I was given a gift of some beautiful granola from the place and as I went to grab my first handful, I realized that it had oats in it.

I have had the Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free oats in the past and they caused a flare up so bad that my neck and shoulder were immobilized again from the pain. They also gave me gas and bloating and other stomach issues. That was the only thing I changed. I am convinced it was from the oats.

I don't think it's fair that they are deciding that their bakery is gluten free and they don't even realize some people are sensitive to oats, too. I have had cookies there and had horrible stomach pains from them.

Since being gluten free, I have gotten my life back. There is no way I would risk it for a cookie if I had known they had oats in them.

I think this is irresponsible, but maybe just on my part. Please watch where you go and what you eat. Even well-meaning people can cause you harm.

I am so sorry that you are ill, but I do want to point something out here.

YOU need to take personal responsibility also. You said in your post that BRM gluten-free Oats have made you ill in the past, so common sense would say that you should take the time to ask for a list of ingredients before eating anything, or take the risk and possibly have a reaction.
If this bakery is catering to a gluten free crowd, I would bet that they would be perfectly happy to provide you with an ingredient list so that you can make an informed decision.

I understand about being excited about trying a new place or product, but if you get so excited that you forget to ask about ingredients, then it's not fair to blame the bakery.

The reminder to be careful is a good one, but personal responsibility has to come in to play here.

I hope you recover soon. It sucks to be sick from your food. :(

In Topic: Hamburger Bun Emergency!

16 November 2010 - 07:18 AM

I use Udi's whole grain bread as I've never found anything that was like a "real" burger bun that was gluten free.

As soon as the burgers are done, I assemble everything, then butter the outsides of the bread and throw the whole thing in a skillet for a couple minutes on each side (think grilled cheese) - YUMMY patty melt style!

In Topic: Funny You Don't Look Sick?

The restuarant is going in the old Pizza Inn (being re-done) at Park & Midway.
They have just started (Monday) looking into what it will take to do gluten-free. I hope its not too discouraging.

I hope not too! Please let them know that if they need any help, I would be willing - whether it be just ideas or actual labor in getting the place set up!
