    I love my two labs, they are my babies. I also love to cook and I am glad I do, since I have to make all of my meals. I recently discovered that I enjoy painting with acrylics. In addition to this I like to walk, fish and ride my bike when the weather is good.

  1. I get sick every time I eat there. Even if the employee changes gloves and is careful with my food. I love the food since it is good but not worth it to me.
  2. Glutened By Vapors

    Gemini and Irishheart. I did not respond to this post to stir up everyone
  3. Glutened By Vapors

    I am glad I dont use this site for support anymore... Some come off as rude these days and not helpful.
  4. Glutened By Vapors

    After reading all of the comments and being a member on this board for a few years I have a couple of comments for this post. 1. From my understanding Chopper was venting about their glutening and just wanted some support. This is a support group. 2. I understand why people reacted the way they did. If newbies come on this site and read vapors glutened someone they are going to assume the same can happen with them. 3. I myself know that I have over reacted to situations and have felt like I have been glutened but I wasnt. 4. I can see why Chopper felt attacked on this board. Please remember people have feelings and even if they are not relevant to you they are to the poster.
  5. Unbelievable! Some compaines think we are stupid enough to believe this. I bought rice pudding about 4 years ago and it said gluten free on the label but had wheat listed on the label. How can it be gluten-free??? That is amazing this company told you that. So frustratring.
  6. I used to watch Dr. Oz until I realized how everything in the world is good one day and then bad the next or how many diets this man has promoted. I am sure he is only talking about gluten intolerance just so he can benefit from this too. Next thing I will hear is how Dr. Oz said to go gluten-free hahaha. Every show is different and there is always a new problem and a new solution to fix that problem. I wish he would just go away......
  7. Help With Canned Beans!

    Please see below email. Van Camp's Pork & Beans are fine to eat.... _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thank you for your email concerning our Van Camp's Pork and Beans. We understand how important it is for people who have been medically diagnosed with gluten sensitivity to obtain accurate information about our food to help plan their meals and diets. And we continue to look for ways to meet the dietary needs of our consumers. Since wheat is a major food allergen, if it is used in the product it would be listed in the contains statement following the ingredients list. The flour used in many of our products is wheat flour and you should avoid these products if you have gluten sensitivities. If any ingredient in the product includes rye or barley, it will be listed in parentheses immediately following the ingredient. Oats do not contain gluten, but they frequently have been exposed to wheat or barley and are not recommended for celiac patients. If Natural Flavors, Artificial Flavors, or Spices listed in the ingredients list contain wheat, rye or barley, these ingredients would be listed in parenthesis immediately following the ingredient. Some fermented or distilled products such as vinegar may be derived from wheat. Most of the vinegar in our products is distilled and through the distilling process protein gluten is removed. Starting January of 2012, we began producing the following brands validated as gluten-free with gluten-free printed on their labels: -Cocoa: Swiss Miss all varieties -Egg Beaters: all varieties -Tomatoes: Hunt's all varieties (excluding Pasta Sauces, Tomato Sauces and Ketchups) -Orville Redenbacher's: all Ready to Eat varieties -Pudding: Swiss Miss & Snack Pack, excludes those containing Tapioca Below is a list of some of our other products that do not contain added gluten* Category/Brand/Items -PAM Cooking Spray: all varieties except PAM Baking -Hebrew National: all items except Franks in a Blanket -Wesson oils: all varieties -Peter Pan Peanut Butter: all varieties -Popcorn: Act II microwave, Orville Redenbacher jar and microwave, excluding Crunch n Munch and Poppycock -Spreads: Parkay, Blue Bonnet, Fleischmann's and Move Over Butter -David Seeds: all varieties -Tomato Sauces: Hunt's tomato paste and sauces excluding pasta sauces -Ketchup: Hunt's all varieties -Reddi-Wip: all varieties -Ro*Tel Tomatoes (excluding sauces) *These items have been identified as not containing gluten. They are not currently routinely tested to affirm they contain less than 20ppm gluten for a 'gluten-free' claim. We always advise consumers who may have sensitivities to recheck the ingredient list on each package. Products are oftentimes reformulated and the ingredients may change. If you have additional questions about your personal dietary needs, please consult your doctor or a registered dietitian. I hope you have a great day!
  8. Ideas For Salads?

    My hubby and I love salads and I guess I would call this a garbage disposal salad since I put everything in it. Black Beans Canned beets Shredded cheese Cucumber Red Bell Pepper Mushrooms Tomato Avacado 1 boiled egg (per salad) 2 pieces of turkey bacon Red Onion The white part of green onions (hubby loves these) I no longer include lettuce with this salad. I started to pick out all of the lettuce lol, so I stopped buying it.
  9. I want to say congrats to all the people out there that have been able to kick this unhealthy habit. I finally stopped smoking in March of 2009 and have not had one since! I smoked for 14 years straight at an average of 1 pack a day. Quitting was soooo hard but I did it. And like others have said, "If you can stop eating gluten, you can stop smoking". During my quit I told myself "I only feel this way because I smoked and not because I quit." It is easy to say, I feel horrible because I stopped smoking but in reality you feel this way because you started to smoke. Good luck to you and remember it is a long process but you can do it =)
  10. Red Robin

    I am glad to hear you all have had a good experience =) I am happy RR offers buns but I probably wouldnt order my chicken sandwich with bread again because it fills me up to quickly. I love my lettuce wraps now and I cant believe I just said that lol.
  11. I eat Budding all the time and I too buy the little packs because they are perfect and have never had a problem =)
  12. Red Robin

    I agree with others on here because it all has to do with the store and management. I didnt eat there for a couple of years until I actually went in and spoke with the manager to ask if they use a dedicated fryer. What is the point having a hamburger or chicken sandwich if you cant have fries? lol. Anyways, I have enjoyed great service (Concord, CA) and they have the gluten-free buns. It is funny because I went there a few weeks ago and they didnt have them yet but now they do. In regards to the crunchy chicken salad you can get regular grilled chicken. They dont make the change on the gluten-free menu for some reason but it clearly states that you can replace it. I enjoy the gluten-free menu at RR, because they have decent options for us. BUT like all places you will always take the chance of CC anytime you go out unless the place is strictly gluten-free.
  13. I thought I wouldn't survive going gluten-free over 3 years ago. Now I see it as a blessing, I now have such a wide variety of fruit, veggies and food to choose from. If I hadn't been diagnosed with celiac I would still be eating unhealthy. I love so many different foods now that I would never have touched before. I know that I am addicted to peanut butter and have been since I was sick from eating wheat.
  14. Just had to say I just saw my first gluten free chex commercial. It was geared around kids but it was still cool. I have never seen a gluten free commercial, made me happy lol.
  15. How Often Do You Cheat?

    I went gluten-free in february 2008, I ate gluten on purpose march of 08 because I couldn't resist and I didn't understand how important it was for me to eat gluten-free. Well after march of 08 I have never eaten gluten on purpose, it is not worth getting sick or any other affects that it takes on me. It sucks because there are people out there who tell everyone they have celiac and then eat wheat. This causes some people not to take us seriously when we explain our situation.
