Aaaah! Glutened Twice This Week!

Recommended Posts

This diet is so frustrating sometimes!! I think I got either glutened or food poisoned at taco bell...all I had were the pinto beans w/ cheese, and i had my own chips at home. Got pretty sick from that. Then, I either got sick from chic-fil-a's fries (which I have eaten numerous times and been fine...) or else I got CC from making tacos (flour tortillas for DH)...this is a pain!

hey sweetfudge,

im soooo sorry. wow, what a bummer. it can be so frustrating...

sounds like all of your possibilites are very possible. i have gotten horribly sick at both chick fil a and taco bell..I finally had to tell myself than any glutenings are just not worth it because I get sick...plus making flour things *can* be risky.

I wish I could make it all better....its one of those "I'll never do that again" moments (like, "I'll never drink again" when we are hungover....;))

Hey Sweetfudge: For the most part, I don't cook/bake with anything containing gluten...the exception is Christmas baking with my kids. I wear one of those face masks, make the kids pour and mix the flour in the garage :rolleyes: and wipe the counters etc real often with paper towel and soap and water--yeah I'm a bit of a freak in that department but it really helps.

Dear Sweetfudge,

I feel for you! I can so relate (as can all of us on the forum). It is a pain. My parents are not gluten-free. My mother treats me like a hypochondriac. Dad is coming around a bit more now.

She has always been convinced that I am crazy, though. She is obsessed with it. She labels everyone with some form of psychological disorder. Since she went to beauty school, she does not apply for a mental health professional. However, many hairdressers must often act as therapists! I got glutened the other week, and could not figure out how! Then, the other night, Mom used my Smart Balance Light so now I have to get new butter! UUURGGGGHHH!!! People are just not careful! I just do not go out to eat! My cousin and Aunt came to visit, but they always go out to eat. So, I did not end up going. It sucks having to explain yourself to everyone all of the time.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl

Sorry your mom isn't any better. I know, I screamed at my husband the other day for using HIS butterknife to butter his bread with MY butter!

I don't go out to eat often, but I miss it a lot!

Congrats on the business! Wow you have a lot of stuff on there! Do you make it all or just sell it? I'm gonna have to put in an order once I get some extra money :) Hopefully I'll get christmas cash from relatives!!
