Was Glutenated Yesterday And Now I'm Scared To Eat.

Recommended Posts

Something I ate for lunch must have had some cross contamination. The only thing I can think of is I had some roasted potatoes that had fried onions. I'm thinking the onions might have been thrown into a fryer to cook them quickly.

I feel better today - still a tad bit jittery and my stomach is a little tender but now I'm terrified to eat. I'm hungry and should have brought my own food to work today : (

I don't know what to do for lunch....

How about a deli and have them make a huge salad for you? Then give you oil and vinager? Or maybe there is a Chipotle around you and have them make you a rice bowl......maybe?

Or if you're scared of more cross contamination, how about just getting plain nuts and some fruit at a deli....a banana or apple so you know they are pretty safe......I know it's not that filling, but the nuts might help.....

I know that feeling well--its hard sometimes to get to the culprit! I hope you continue to feel better. I find that after being glutened, it helps if I eat something (safe and familiar in a small amount!). I don't know why, but if my stomach is empty, it's worse. :)

Ok to I decided on some mashed potatoes from Wild Oats (where all the ingredients are safely labeled) and a bag of Terra Chips. THere is a Chipotle a block from my NY office but unfortunately I had to come to my CT office today where it's not as easy.

Thanks guys. I just needed a tad bit of comfort, and knew you'd all been there.

I've had the potatoes in our cafeteria a bunch of times but these must have been a little different. I guess I got to comfortable thinking the potatoes where safe. I know it wasn't the omlette because all of the different ingredients they can add are fine and they make it right infront of you in an individual pan.
