Marie Callender's Frozen Dinners

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was at the grocery store last night picking up some ice cream and for kicks read some labels on Marie Callendar's frozen dinners.

There were a few with gluten-free ingredients (and I can't remember the life of me which ones, I'm thinking sliced beef pot roast, potatoes and broccoli, stuff like that).

Has anyone tried these before? They are made by ConAgra so I trust the ingredients, just wondering about the x-contamination factor since so many of the Marie Callender's meals DO have gluten.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

These would be a great add to have around for quick meals.

The only one that I know of is the Chicken, cheese, broccoli, wild rice dinner. I have been eating it with no problem. It would be nice if there were others. Sometimes I have no leftovers for my lunch.

Seriously, this is gluten-free? Pre-gluten-free days, whenever I felt lousy and my tummy felt gross, this meal was always my standby that I'd get at the store. Heat it up, tons of salt and for some reason, my stomach felt better then. Hmm, it all makes sense now.

Wow, that sounds good. I miss that Uncle Ben's rice bowl they used to make with cheese and rice. Come to think of it, I don't think they make rice bowls anymore period.

thanks for the responses. i am going to pay much better attention at the store this weekend and report back with the ones i think have gluten-free ingredients. i think it is con-agra so it should be safe, but i'll probably call directly just to make sure.

there were seriously 2-3 meals with meat and potatoes and maybe a rice/chicken one and stuff! i was seriously excited because quick meals are a thing of the past at our house and that would buy us just a little bit of freedom. it's not necessarily super healthy, but nice to have around in a pinch.

i looked for the uncle ben's rice bowls and didn't see them either. i LOVED those!

I know on the Chicken, Wild rice, broccoli, cheese dinner I saw it posted on some celiac site. I have no idea which one now. I try to take leftovers for my lunch, but try to keep them on hand when I don't have any. It would be great to know it they have other ones too. Wendy

I looked today and the chicken, cheese and rice was the only one that didn't list wheat in the ingredients. Sorry.

    What are your iron results?  Was ferritin (iron stores) taken?  Are you actually anemic (low hemoglobin)?  The results you posted are your Immunoglobulins.  Looks like your IgE is high, but then it is Spring and allergy season is supposed to be pretty bad this year (at least in the US).  What riggers your allergies (e.g. cats, horses, mold, etc.)? Have other autoimmune issues been ruled out that could cause tendinitis or vertigo?    
    The EMA test is the most expensive of the celiac blood tests because it is not machine run, but done by humans.  A lab mistake could have been made.  With negative genes, the rest of the panel and symptoms eliminated, chances are you do not have celiac disease, but you can always get retested in six months, if you have symptoms or think celiac disease could be an issue.   Making dietary changes can have adverse reactions to anyone.  Consuming too much of a good thing can easily make you sic
Hey there ! hope all is well for you.  I’ve been struggling with all sorts of tenidinitis and vertigo issues so I haven’t been on the computer much, but I would love any advice if possible. I have been on a very strict gluten free diet for 6 or 7 months. Still have low iron and just got results back. Would love your opinion. I prepare all food myself except once where I was likely glutened. I am seeing haematologist next week, but I was wondering what you think. Parasites have been eliminat
