What Should I Ask For At Whole Foods?

I am flying up to Louisville on Thursday for a company meeting and flying back on Saturday. The secretary offered to go to Whole Foods for me and pick me up some food so I will have something to eat because I won't have a car. I will need to make 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches out of what she brings me. I will have a fridge and microwave. I am also nursing my son so I eat like a truck driver and am especially conscious about eating lots of organic fruits & veggies. I wouldn't say I'm a vegetarian, but I don't really like meat & I love dairy. I need the 4 meals plus about 4 snacks a day. I can bring food from home but I'm trying to limit that as much as possible. I don't eat Amy's or anything produced on shared equipment because I'm very, very sensitive. I typically eat rice or Tinkyada w/veggies and cheese for most meals.

I was thinking of asking for kefir and yogurt and I love their sandwich bread. Do they have sliced cheese that is gluten-free there? I even thought of lunch meat because it will be easy, do they carry some sort of pre-packaged nitrate free gluten-free lunch meat? I'm going to bring some nuts & Lara bars with me and they will have bananas I can snag at the hotel. What else should I ask for? Specific brands would be helpful.

Thanks!

Glutino frozen Mac N Cheese.

Glutino pretzels.

Kinnickinnick donuts.

Annie Chungs rice bowls (microwaveable brown and sticky rice).

Fresh fruits and veggies.

gluten-free chicken nuggets (there are a few kinds at whole foods).

You might think about buying a cheap toaster while you're there. Maybe can find one under $10. That would open up your options for gluten-free toast and such, or some gluten-free waffles.

They have Welshire Farms meats and various cheeses that are sliced and sealed in pkg.s.(I don't buy them because I'm dairy free) Foods by George individual pizzas. That's all I can think of at the moment. What brands and products do you use? There is a healthfood store just down the street from WF called Rainbow Blossom that carries Kinnickkinnick, Glutino and more vegan and vegetarian oriented products as well as a very good selection of gluten-free.

glutenfreelouisville.org is the local website.

You can select items yourself:

EDIT: Their gluten-free list is available at each store and apparently not available online. Sorry.

Applegate Farms http://www.applegatefarms.com/ has gluten free, nitrate free pre-packaged lunch-meat. I've gotten it at Whole Foods and some normal Kroeger's type grocery stores. oscar meyer also has a new line of nitrate free, gluten free prepackaged lunch-meats but I haven't seen it at Whole Foods.

How about canned tuna or other fish? Progresso Chicken Rice soup is gluten-free. Taste of Thai packaged noodles are good. Also, Tasty Bite has pouches of Indian-style curry; they even have some with precooked rice. Most are vegetarian, some are vegan.

Whole Foods usually has Ian's chicken and fish nuggets gluten free.

You could try Amy's frozen rice mac and cheese or rice lasagna and rice crust pizza. There are probably frozen gluten-free bagels and Van's waffles as well as lots of gluten-free cereals - you could ask for the ones like Rice Krispies or like Cheerios to steer your designated shopper. Plenty of gluten-free cookies (Pamela's are good) as well. Greek yogurt is wonderful. There are also muffins and other baked goods from Whole Foods' own bakery in the freezer. Don't forget canned tuna and baked beans (Bush and B&M are safe, but I don't remember if WF carries them). Blocks of cheddar or other cheese.

Lara bars are a great snack. Just raw nuts and dates. How about organic eggs. Even though I hate to microwave my food, in a pinch at a hotel I will micro a couple eggs (scrambled) and put them in a warmed Food For Life brown rice toritilla (at Whole Foods).

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
