#201314 Multivitamin That's Gluten-free, Dairy-free And Soy-free?

Posted by jenvan on 12 September 2006 - 12:56 PM

http://www.freedavitamins.com/ I would call to ck, but Freeda sells an SCD vitamin which should be free of what you listed.

#152844 Are Any Salad Dressings Ok?

Posted by jenvan on 14 June 2006 - 06:33 AM

That is hard to know...as far as what restaurants carry. They may order from a distributor and may not have or give you the ingredients to check. Some restaurants could either 1. Have verified certain dressings are gluten-free or 2. Make their own in house and can verify ingredients (and you can determine whether its safe or not) However, you won't get help in this area at some restaurants. I also take my own dressing frequently to restaurants. You can also order individual size packets of dressing from several stores online and carry those too. Pretty hand. I can post info if you are interested...

#122687 How Strict Do We Need To Be?

Posted by jenvan on 04 April 2006 - 04:56 AM

Don't get the expensive, specialty stuff. Stick with the normal, naturally gluten-free stuff that everyone naturally buys, like rice, beans, meat, dairy (if you can have it), and produce. You can make all sorts of things from normal every day items, and you don't *need* bread. ;-) (And yes, you get used to not having it.)


Yeah, even before going gluten-free...I didn't eat much bread, meat on salads, not sandwiches, and I always eat my hamburgers w/o a bun--like a steak with A1 sauce, knife and fork instead ;)

#75963 I'm Always Tired.

Posted by jenvan on 09 November 2005 - 05:09 AM

have you had a work up to check for deficiencies such as iron? anemia caused me additional fatigue and symptoms such as chewing ice and restless leg syndrome. i have been gluten-free for 8 mos, and i am still very tired. i actually felt more energized before going gluten-free! the celiac nurse i work with has mentioned that it can take up to 2 years to really feel "normal" again. you may have an additional issue going on or it your body may very well still be in a transitional period and adjusting, beginning to heal etc. you could go back and ck with your doc... deficiencies can be cked with a simple blood test.

#56029 Safe Liquids

Posted by jenvan on 02 August 2005 - 03:03 PM

here is a list of gluten-free broth/bouillon:
butterball canned ckn broth
herb ox ckn bouillon
pacific foods natural or organic free range ckn broth
safeway ckn broth
shaw's ckn broth
trader joes' ckn broth
hy-vee bouillon cubes
better than bouillon soup bases


i don't have any at home to know for sure--but ck out mccormick's bouillon cubes too. remember, they do not hide gluten ingredients, so if the ingredients listed don't contain gluten, then it should be ok.
