Topics I've Started

Now Jade Riviera Maya Mexico

29 April 2013 - 02:51 PM

Hi -


I am going to Mexico in a few weeks for an all inclusive vacation.. a bit nervous about how I will be - with the food and all. Has anyone had experience with this resort in Mexico? Or this resort (Now Jade) anywhere else?


I have NO tolerance for gluten - the tiniest bit can make me very sick and all the food will be inclusive, the travel agent said it should be fine and just to let them know.. but I am nervous!! (and yes, excited too!!)





Ugh.. Celebrities!

12 March 2013 - 06:17 PM

After being sick all night, throwing up and continuing to be sick into the next day.. the first thing I saw on TV in the morning was an interview with Snooki about how she lost weight after having her baby.. her response among other things was she is careful with her diet, no carbs, dairy and she is "trying" to be gluten free... wow.. for some reason that comment really upset me.. after a night of misery from some kind of gluten cross contamination that comment completely trializes the medical need that people have to stear clear of gluten. I wish I had the luxury of avoiding it to drop a few lbs like celebrities! (sorry for the rant.. but just had to vent!)

Werther's Original Products

26 February 2013 - 07:39 AM

Do any of the Werther’s Original products contain wheat based ingredients or gluten?

All Werther’s Original products are suitable for a gluten-free diet. They do include glucose syrup, which may be derived from a wheat source. The Coeliac society states that glucose syrup sourced from wheat is suitable for the inclusion in a gluten-free diet.


I was trying to look up Werther's caramel hard candies to see if they are gluten free and this was the response on the web site... which left me confused, so does this mean they are ok??



Why Don't I Get Sick Right When I Eat Gluten?

04 February 2013 - 01:43 PM

I have always noticed that I usually don't feel sick for an hour or sometimes hours after I have eaten something that contained gluten.. I have been reading a lot of posts and it seems like a lot of people feel the effects almost immediately.. For example if I eat dinner.. I may feel fine the rest of the night and think I have successfully avoided gluten, but then I find myself awake at 1am covered in sweat and rolling around in bed with horrible stomach pains..

Is there a reason that it doesn't hit me right away? There are times when I start feeling sick within an hour and then I know i'll be stuck on the couch the rest of the night but more often it hits me later.. i'm just curious

Margherita Pepperoni

03 February 2013 - 01:12 PM

Does anyone know if Margherita's Turkey Pepperoni is gluten free? I am making pizza tonight and I forgot to check the pepperoni - I can't find it on their website and I am wondering what the "natrual flavors" are? I think the regular pepperoni is but I got the turkey on for myself and now i'm not sure if I will even use it. Let me know if anyone else has tried it with no problems, thanks!!!!!!
