Scrubbing Potatoes...

24 October 2012 - 01:16 PM

Hi guys,

Okay, so this might be a bit of a paranoid cross-contamination question; judge as you may. My dad insists upon scrubbing the outside of the potatoes with the same scrub brush as we use for scrubbing pots, pans, and cleaning dishes. I'm thinking this may pose a cross-contamination issue because I do not live in a gluten-free household, therefore you cannot assume the brush is clean. I've been told I'm just over-emotional... <_<

Does anyone have a similar experience or insights to offer? Or perhaps you are sensitive and have had a reaction to such forms of cross-contamination? Any information would be helpful, really.

Thanks so much!!!

Gluten-Free Restaurants In Quebec (And Old Quebec)

29 December 2011 - 01:03 PM


Just wondering if anyone's had any success eating out or purchasing gluten-free products (from a grocery store)in Quebec City, or Old Quebec. We will be staying there and eating out around dinner time. We have heard of Lapin Saute, but it seems kind of pricy. Not sure if thats the norm or not. Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Still Symptomatic After 6 Months Of gluten-free Diet?

26 November 2011 - 12:15 PM


I have been following very strictly (except for today... :( ) the gluten free diet. Every time I eat a meal, I get extremely bloated directly afterwards. I don't really have any idea what is causing it. This was happening before I was diagnosed as well. Until 2 months ago, and at the direction of my GE, I was dairy free. Now I am lactose-free, and so far the bloating has not changed, which leads me to think that it isn't lactose/dairy. I'm really not sure, and I was wondering if anyone else could lend a bit of insight or perhaps they have had similar situations??
