So here I was microwaving some wheat bran because I was revamping my meal worm colonies; (I grow them for chicken treats) the container melted so not thinking I scooped it up with my hands and put it into another container. OMG I am soooo sore today and I couldnt figure out why...DUH! Just had to vent! T
SO I cook at a retirement facility and I need to taste test some stuff occasionally that I obviously cannot eat. I am wondering what the consensus is on testing pasta? If I bite it and rinse my mouth do you think I would be contaminated?
What about a soup or sauce? If I taste a little in the "front" of my mouth, spit it out and rinse; does it still get in my system if I never actually swallow any of it?
Sometimes I have another person in the kitchen with me that can test but lately there has been only me. This is really tough...Thanks! Terri O
A friend on another site sent me this and I am intrigued. Has anyone tried this? Anyone heard of it? Maybe I am grasping at straws but what the video says seems to make sense to me...thanks for your opinions! Terri O
I have been gluten-free for 3 weeks or so and the other day I had the worst thirst ever! I usually drink a fair amount of water but now am finding myself drinking water ALL day long! This is fine with me, but I am just wondering if others have had this "cotton mouth" as a side effect of going gluten-free...and does it stop? Thanks! Terri O
THe other day I purchased a bag of brown rice (generic) and ground it up in my vita-mix into flour. In anyone's opinion...am I poisoning myself eating this and using it for baking? DO you all call every manufacturer? I dont have too much $$ to buy the specialty flours and such so I thought I might grind my own?
Do these companies really know if their food is contaminated with wheat or not? I am so confused...
