In Topic: Gluten Free...just Because

26 April 2011 - 03:54 PM

Ok, so my MIL asked me AGAIN today if I was sticking to this "diet" and why her neighbor down the road can't eat gluten either but will occasionally have a bowl of pasta when they go out and just say that she has to be good for awhile now - like it was some high fat dessert or something *rolls eyes*

In Topic: Losing Friends Because Of My Food Restrictions

I am sorry about your losing a friend. That said, why do you turn down social invites? Either just don't eat (eat beforehand so you aren't hungry) or bring your own safe food. Don't isolate yourself because you will lose a lot more friends than this one if you do :( BTW......{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}

Mu MIL said to me at Easter, "Oh! You are still doing that?" in reference to my not eating gluten. I said, "Yeah, it is either not eat gluten or die so I choose gluten free forever!"

In Topic: Easter Dinner Sure Is Easier Than Thanksgiving And Christmas!

25 April 2011 - 02:40 PM

I was very apprehensive about Easter at my in-law's house. I ended up taking a yummy appetizer that I could eat and my own meal (grilled chicken and fresh salad made just the way picky me likes it). Doesn't sound very exciting, but my husband's family are not renowned for their cooking skills and so my dish looked better than the actual meal (dried out roast and goopy sides). Dessert was slightly depressing, but since it was all store bought I didn't feel too bad - I rewarded myself with some Coconut Bliss dark chocolate ice cream when I got home. Posted Image

I fared well, other than taking a sip of vodka before realizing it was distilled from wheat (and I was trying to avoid potential casein problems by skipping the wine)! I had some minor stomach pain and didn't sleep great, but didn't experience most of my other symptoms, so I seem to have lucked out.

The family was very cool - maybe because they're not a "foodie" family they were just fine about me bringing my food. Won't be so easy with my own family, but I've got time to train my mother before Thanksgiving!

Can someone please explain the above statement in bold to me? I can't have casein either and now I can't have WINE because of it???

In Topic: Truncated Ingredients Lists

I just bought a big bag of Lay's salt and vinegar the other week and it did not say wheat on the ingredients list.
