Is This Normal

Recommended Posts

I am new to all of this. I have been gluten free for just over a week now. I did bc I have various issues that always arise and when researching all can be linked to gluten. After day 2 I felt horrible but after that have felt better than ever. Well today I had a taco from Moes and about 4 chips. On they way home I started feeling really bad achy almost and wanted to throw up my food. I read on here that the chips and shells may have been contaminated. Would I seriously get this bad of a reaction after only a week? I have been a HUGE bread eater all of my life and was really hoping I could still eat some gluten. Is this normal or am I just crazy? I am starting to feel a little better but never want to eat a taco there again!

Well tacos are pretty greasy, which can upset a damaged digestive system. Since you've just started, I would suggest staying away from restaurants until you have a gluten-free routine down. If it makes you feel any better, my body reacted oddly during my first week as well. Just give it time and stick to foods that you know for sure are gluten free :)

It sounds like you probably got glutened from Moe's. A lot of us react very strongly to small amounts of gluten after being gluten free. The last I checked, Moe's chips were listed as made from flour tortillas and not safe for celiacs, although maybe they changed their ingredients.

Moe's tacos are not gluten-free. They fry them in a shared fryer with gluten foods. They have gluten-free info on their website and tacos and chips are not on the list of safe foods.

You really have to research before you go anywhere, never assuming that because a food seems gluten-free, then it is. McDonald's, for example, has gluten in their fries. Taco Bell has it in all items on the menu but the mexican rice. Some places but gluten in their beef patties, and so on.
