Topics I've Started

Pret A Manger Changed Salad Dressings ;-(

12 December 2014 - 08:00 PM

A couple of months ago I got my usual cobb salad at Pret a Manger, with a balsamic vinaigrette dressings.  The salad has a gluten-free sticker on it, and the dressing always has been gluten free.


Well, I got almost immediately sick and hadn't been back again until last week.  I picked up the cobb salad and went for the dressing and noticed that there was no gluten-free sticker on the rack card in front of the dressings.  I looked at the label and it now has soy sauce in it (with wheat).  In fact, none of the dressings are now gluten-free, I even e-mailed the company.  So strange for a company that has gone out of their way to expand their gluten-free options these last couple of years.


Anyway, I don't know when they changed the dressings, but my reaction was so bad and immediate that time in September, I'm guessing that's what got me.


It's true what they say:  You have to read the label EACH time.

Vee Tee Heat & Eat Rice Dishes?

17 November 2014 - 07:39 AM

Has anyone had these?  Our local specialty store just started offering them and  they seem like an easy, tasty solution for busy nights.

Nowhere on the packaging does it have any information about the facility though, so I wanted to see whether others have eaten them safely.  Mostly interested i n the flavored ones - Mexican Style, Peri Peri, etc.






From the FAQs: Is Veetee Heat & Eat Rice gluten free?

The following Heat & Eat products are currently gluten free: 
Basmati Rice
Long Grain Rice
Thai Jasmine Rice
Thai Lime & Herb Rice
Basmati & Wild Rice 
Peri Peri Rice 
Pilau Rice 
Spicy Mexican Style Rice
Chicken Flavour Rice

Hi - Does anyone know if Orangina is Gluten Free?  I did a search here but could only find info from 2005 and the website is no help.



Lunches To Bring To Work

14 October 2014 - 01:38 PM

It's probably been asked, but I'm looking for suggestions for lunches to bring to work.  I had been doing fine eating (carefully) off the salad bar in our cafeteria for the last year --- up 'til today.


I see that I'm going to need to bring in my own lunches from here on out.  I don't mind bringing in a turkey sandwich on gluten-free bread, but I don't want to do that every day.  Refrigeration is sometimes available, as is a microwave.


Time is extremely limited, and I can't imagine when I will prepare this, but I'm going to try.


What do you all bring in to eat for lunch?  I'd love suggestions.



Slicer At The Deli?

02 October 2014 - 02:26 PM

I've avoided eating Boars Head Turkey or Roast Beef that would need to be sliced at the deli counter, because I'm afraid they would have sliced something with gluten on the same slicer and there could be residue. But I'm wondering if I'm being over-cautious.  Do you buy cold cuts that need to be sliced, or just buy packaged (which usually means over-processed)?
