  1. our cats eat Wellness, which is grain free as well.
  2. Here's their feedback site http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/contact/contact.html select contact global headquarters. And get your friends and other family members to write in as well. If we get the word out, it will work.
  3. Hi - I've been searching high and low for either the Enjoy Life Ryeless Rye or the Trader Joes brand, and can't find it anywhere. Enjoy Life emailed me and confirmed they have discontinued it. Can anyone out there find any of either of these? I would really like to get some and can paypal you any money including shipping if you can come up with some for me. Thanks!
  4. Works for me every time. I use Tinkyada pasta, and freeze the extra noodles tossed with a little olive oil, in a ziploc bag. I just toss them into boiling water right from the freezer, and take them out almost immediately - leaving them in just long enough to thaw and reheat. You can undercook them just a bit if you're worried about them getting mushy. It works great for me, and saves a lot of time during the week!
  5. Rice Dreams Milk

    Definitely try Almond Breeze. It's really tasty, and great on cereal, in tea or coffee, and for cooking. It's all we use now. They eve have a chocolate version that's a super tasty indulgence too!
  6. Hi, New To The Disease

    Hi Katie - welcome! Next time, just use Tinkyada pasta for the boyfriend - he'll never know it's gluten free, and you won't have to worry about getting sick. Note too, that if he has eaten gluten, had a beer, had bread, etc, and you kiss, you can get glutened - so make him brush first.
  7. There's an article posted today on Epicurious.com about the gluten free cooking spree in New York last week. As soon as I started reading it, I was furious - because what the writer claims could not only make it even harder for us to make our point in restaurants, but it's misinformation that I think could make newbies sick. Here's the part that got me: And here's the whole article. Anyone else read this and cringe? I can just see it now. The waiter will just tell us to pick off the croutons or take the breading off the fish...
  8. Mission tortilla chips do it for me. Lundberg rice chips too. Homemade guacamole with lots of lime and a bit of salt works too. I also eat the Natural Ruffles or Lays brand potato chips, a little too much I"m sure. I'm not sure if they have CC issues though - I'm not that sensitive (yet).
  9. Thanks for all your ideas! Y'all are fast! I really appreciate it - I will print out this information and take it with us on Friday.
  10. Hi, I"m going to visit my in-laws next week, and am wondering if anyone knows somewhere I can eat safely either coming from the airport, going to Keller, or near Athens? Somewhere that serves fish would be important since I am also a vegetarian who eats fish, and also can't eat dairy. I know, I know - I just don't go out to eat anymore, but they really want to take us somewhere. Does anyone have any suggestions? Obviously texans aren't going to want to eat at Outback.... They love Pappadeaux and Poppacitos though I don't know if there is anything I can eat there either. The last time they came here to visit, we went to a mexican place, and the only thing even remotely safe on the menu was a nice salad with all sorts of great things on it - avocado and cranberries, and walnuts.... and when I ordered it they said they couldn't make that today. Humiliated, I sat at the table while they all ate their lunches. (They had already ordered, and we were on a small island - not like there were other options...) Anyway, we'd like to not repeat that. They felt terrible. Thanks in advance!
  11. gluten-free In Seattle?

    Wild Ginger has some great servers who are super ready to help you find items on the menu that you can eat. I have eaten there once since I went gluten-free, and had a wonderful experience! Their food is really fantastic. Also, I've only heard raves about Impromptu, so do try it. The Chef there is engaged to a celiac and knows all about making food safely that you can enjoy!
  12. Gluten-free Honeymoon Suggestions

    Don't let the media scare you off a cruise. I went on two and had a fabulous time on both of them. The stomach virus that the news likes to talk about on cruise ships is prevalent *anywhere* there are large numbers of people confined to a finite space. Institutions, hospitals, jails, and the like. When I was on the ships I was amazed at how many people would leave the bathroom without washing their hands. Seriously. Who does that?? We carried hand sanitizer in our pockets, didn't touch railings, and didn't do the buffets. After all, those same people with their dirty hands are handling all the utensils. Simple hygienic cautions will make sure you have a great time on a cruise. The best part is that you will have the same waiter and servers for your entire trip, for every meal. You won't need to tell someone every single night that you need to eat gluten free. I'd say if you want to cruise, do it. If you have kids, there are great programs that will keep them busy all day, and they will have a wonderful time. They are safe, and you can relax knowing they are having a great vacation too.
  13. I hear you there! I tried going to the local gluten-free support group once - and not only did not a single person come up and say hello, even though we were the only people there without nametags on - but it was all about what junk food we could safely eat. isn't that what got us into this mess in the first place? I don't eat meat, although I eat fish, eat gluten and dairy free, avoid sugar as much as possible, and still struggle with tomatoes - and not one thing they offered would fit into my diet - not only that, but they weren't even aware what was in things, and i was. I would have thought that people who have to be careful enough to read labels on everything would be sensitive to other people's allergies, but got the brush off when I asked if something had dairy or sugar in it.
  14. I'm on about a year off gluten now. I'm amazed reading these replies, though, at how few veggies most people eat - some don't have anything green listed at all! And we're obviously not starving in the starch department. For me, I try to limit my egg intake to two per week, and that's usually on weekends. We will do an omelet with spinach or asparagus and mushrooms and onions, with some garlic rosemary roasted potatoes, and start that with a grapefruit. We usually share a grapefruit each weekend morning. We also do pamela's pancakes on weekends. During the week though, it's pretty predictable. Breakfast - handful homemade tamari roasted almonds, banana, gluten-free/caffiene free tea. We're on mandarin orange spice Yogi tea lately, with a little honey. At work I have another cup of tea - usually numi honeybush with some almond breeze. Sometimes I have cereal - panda puffs - at work with almond breeze. lunch - usually short grain brown rice with steamed veggies - carrots, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli, and mushrooms - whatever's handy in the morning - topped with some Organicville Sesame Goddess dressing. Or some Amy's lentil soup, or black bean vegetable, with a gluten-free roll from the local co op. snacks - bumble bars, especially chocolate. Glutino cookies or pamela's cookies now and then. Mission gluten-free tortilla strips. Lundberg rice chips - especially the sesame seaweed. dinner - living in the northwest, we get salmon a lot. My default marinade is gluten-free tamari, honey, ginger, garlic, and mirin. We also will do halibut in wine and capers, or simple sauteed tilapia with garlic and pepper. I cook almost exclusively with Frantoia olive oil. We will have fish with steamed vegetables and brown rice (I eat a lot of brown rice since this all started, and it's amazing what a difference it makes in my health.) For comfort food I will make a tuna casserole with tinkyada pasta. I make a lot of soups at home in the winter - potato leek, black bean, broccoli, carrot ginger - they're great in the winter for lunches the next day. We use the gluten free pantry bread mix and I make a loaf a few times a month. We also get kinnickinnick english muffins to use as buns for salmon burgers or Sunshine burgers. I make homemade fries. We have what we call epic salads about one a week, just a huge plate of salad green with lots of veggies and whatever's around in the fridge - cold potatoes chopped and tossed with a little dijon vinaigrette (organicville), roasted beets tossed with balsamic vinegar, and some tuna makes a really great dinner salad. He likes a hardboiled egg on his. I will make rice or quinoa salads in the summer with green onions, artichoke hearts, cooked salmon, almonds, and organicville miso ginger dressing, or a quinoa/blackbean/onion/corn/red pepper salad with some cumin and coriander is a nice change too. I try to eat as many veggies as possible in a day. I put them in everywhere I can. I try to eat some short grain brown rice every day, even if it's just tossed with some steamed broccoli alongside a sunshine burger on a bun. ok. i'm rambling. hope someone gets some ideas from all of this.
  15. What Now Dentist That Said He Would

    Can someone enlighten me what the risks are with dentistry? I am totally unaware of what products may or may not contain gluten?
