I'm An Idiot - Chicken !

Recommended Posts

:huh:

Note to self - when I feel like crap, look at what I'm eating !!!

Extra Foods baked chicken - makes for an easy supper BUT has gluten. Last week I was feeling so tired - the kind of tired where you can't barely sit up - and my sinuses were bad, but dry. I was also having stomach cramps but my kids all had the flu so I just thought I was next. Fast forward to this week - bought another chicken two days ago. Yep, started feeling tired again - of course, we had some for supper, I nibbled on some for lunch the next day, and then last night at work I had more and suddenly I was so nauseous, ugh. I have had stomach cramps all night and light headedness, terrible sleep, 'guck' in my chest and my sinuses hurt. :( Good thing I took the skin off, where all the spices are, or it'd be worse.

Anyway - my point is to beware of those convenient baked chickens AND if you feel just a little ill, think about what you've eaten so you don't keep eating it and feel a LOT ill. :blink:

Glad you were able to figure it out. Hope you are feeling better and thanks for the heads up. I'm always tempted to try those chickens because they look so yummy and are convenient, now I won't give it a thought!

The same thing happened to me with a Sam's club chicken, I wouldn't trust those store rotisserie chickens at all. That was my worst glutening ever because I ate so bloody much of it. We bought a rotisserie toaster oven. So there, Sam's.

Costco chickens are fine ~ and less expensive that many of the others. :)

If you have a Costco near you their Rotissare Chicken's are gluten free.

Glad you found out what the problem was, I did the same thing shortly after being diagnosed-I was buying the chicken's from Sam's Club and they are not gluten free.

Our Stop-and-Shop, the plain ones are okay...but the 'italian' ones have all kinds of spices & "natural flavors" and etc and don't work with my system. And the barbecue ones are even worse (well, for length of ingredient list - never tried as I don't like sweet stuff on my meat). Not sure I trust the rotisserie to keep everything separate...so haven't had since going gluten-free.


gluten-free (except unintentionally) from 7 Dec 2007

3 gluten-free cousins and counting (1 gold standard, 1 pos blood/no endo, 1 self/dietary diagnosed)

suspect mother was celiac (also, cousin suspects my mother's twin is celiac)

Feb 08 testing 'normal range' for gluten antibodies, IBD and food allergies

Staying off gluten - dietary reaction is compelling for me!

I don't trust the rotisserie itself, it must be impossible to clean those things enough to make them safe.

Costco chickens are safe? WOOHOO!!!!

Costco eh ??? I wish I had one here in town - closest one is over an hour away...but I will have to check it out.

Thing is, those Extra Foods chickens USED to be ok - I've been having celiac symptoms for over 3 years and never had a major problem with them and we ate a lot of them during the summer ! However, once I'm glutened, it is definitely off my list. :( Extra Foods/Superstore does not seem to be jumping on the bandwagon to list gluten in its ingredients on any of its products and there is enough food out there that I am not going to take the time to research every little item of theirs.
