#290441 In N Out

Posted by gf4life on 12 April 2007 - 08:18 AM

The sauce would be gluten free, except they slap it on with a spatula out of a vat, then the spatula goes back in the vat, etc...so it gets a lot of CC from the buns. The ketchup and mustard are in squeeze bottles and are gluten free.

I order mine : Double-Double, protein style, ketchup & mustard instead of sauce (sometimes with, sometimes without onion). This is about the only time I ever eat cheese, but it is so worth it!

I love their burgers. I only have a few fries that I steal from my kids. They are gluten free, but I try to limit my unhealthy fats, and the burger with cheese is plenty! The drinks and shakes are also gluten free. Pretty much everything but the buns and anything that comes in contact with the buns...

#15434 Panda Express

Posted by gf4life on 26 August 2004 - 03:34 PM

My in-laws recently moved to a new town. We went to visit them for my FIL's birthday and he wanted chinese food. I was going to try to get the restaraunt to custom make some gluten-free dishes for us, but we ended up at Panda Express. :rolleyes: I knew that there wasn't going to be anything for my kids and I to eat, but we went anyhow. The steamed rice was fine. It was kept in a separate area away from the other foods and served on the plates first with its own separate scoop (also kept away from the other foods). So we just had rice. I had brought beef jerky for us in the car, so we ate that and had juice. The staff was concerned that we weren't ordering, but after making sure that every other dish contained soy sauce, except the egg rolls which contained wheat, I just got the rice. They didn't offer plain steamed veggies and I wasn't going to risk trying to get them to make a special dish. I could see right into the kitchen area and the risk of cross-contamination was very high!

On a side note, my MIL who never seemed to understand why we don't eat their food at their parties started to understand what I mean when I say "NO GLUTEN/WHEAT/DAIRY". After two days of watching what we eat and having me check labels and verify everything we put in our mouths maybe she will understand a bit more next time we come over and she won't get so offended when we don't eat their Philippino dishes filled with soy sauce and wheat flour. Of course they finished the night with Coconut Cream Pie and offered it to me and my kids! Wouldn't it be funny if my husband ever gets tested and finds that most of his family also has problems with gluten and dairy! They buy Pepto Bismol by the case to deal with all their gastro problems!

God bless,

#4964 Fruit Snacks

Posted by gf4life on 19 March 2004 - 11:18 AM

Kathleen,

Where do you get the "flat fruit"? I would like to get the real fruit bars since they are healthier, and Costco used to sell then, but they stopped a few years back. I can usually only find them in healthfood stores now and they are very pricey. With three kids (who want to eat them everyday) I can't afford $.50(and up) each. That would be around $50.00 a month just for fruit snacks! I'll keep looking for ones in bulk. If you know of anywhere online that sells them please let me know.

God bless,
Mariann :)

#4731 Fruit Snacks

Posted by gf4life on 16 March 2004 - 09:42 AM

Hi everyone, I have contacted General Mills, Kellogg's, and Kraft/Nabisco about their fruit snacks. My kids don't want to have to give them up, and I know that General Mills Fruit Roll Ups are gluten and casein free. But does any one know about the others? Those are the brands that my kids eat regularly and that is the one treat they are allowed daily, since I limit their candy consumption. I am now looking at putting the extras into a pinata at my daughters b-day party next month, and telling my kids not to grab any of them. They are doing well on the switch over to the gluten free and dairy free lifestyle. My boys informed their sunday school teacher that they could not eat any cookies or crackers unless mom send them , and that they had to save the candy until after church so mom could check if it was safe. :D I'm so proud of them. Even my 4 year old daughter did not eat the cookie's at the snack time!

If you know if any of these fruit snacks are safe, please let me know.

God bless,
Mariann
