Thanks - no, sadly, she won't get tested.  I pretty much had to bribe her (with my own weight loss)  to try going gluten-free til the end of May to see if she feels any better.  She believes this is all just old age.

I take Levothyroxine from Mylan with no problem.  Is that generic?

In Topic: Trader Joe's Turkey Bolognese Sauce?

23 April 2015 - 12:24 PM

Got a great reply from TJs - much as we suspected:



Thank you for contacting us with your product inquiry.  In response, our "Just Sauce" Turkey Bolognese Sauce does not contain any gluten ingredients or sources, and there is no gluten present in the vendor facility.  However, the product does not make the claim "gluten free" on the label, as the supplier does not conduct this specific type of testing.



I'm looking forward to trying it!

In Topic: Annoyance With Fad Dieters

It's the upside and the downside - the upside is there's this wonderful new market created by these people for prepared foods and menus that you and I can benefit from.  The downside is that chefs, waiters, etc., don't take the risk of cross-contamination seriously and that there are eye-rollers out there who just don't get that I'd LOVE to not have to eat this way.


I've even found that my old stand-bye of telling a waiter I'm doing this for MEDICAL reason (and this is why they need to be extra careful) and not just for the diet can backfire - as when a recent waiter then answered me that well, his wife is gluten free for diet reasons so he 'gets it', but I could clearly tell he thought I was making fun of her.  Hope he didn't spit in my food ;-)


For now, I just choose to be grateful that these people have motivated business to provide gluten-free foods, Certified gluten-free labelling, menus and training, and motivated government to respond my codifiying labelling rules.

I eat out a lot, but I won't go to a pizzeria that has regular pizza unless I can see clearly that the areas are kept very separate, gloves are changed, etc.  There's just too much flour floating around.


I usually just have a canned soda when I'm with people in these places, and eat at home.
