  1. Shakeology

    I can tell you that Shakeology made me violently ill. I only used half the packed of powder. I wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole after how sick it made me. I had never had such an intense reaction before, but had the same thing the last time I was glutened a few weeks ago.
  2. According to their website they are not certified gluten free, nor do they test for gluten. It used to have the label on it but no longer does. They do not ask their suppliers either. Some time next year they will have a form of testing in place, till then, who knows. I have noticed that it has been upsetting my stomach for the last few weeks so I switched to 8th continent. Problems gone. I have no idea about the casein, as that is not a problem for me.
  3. I would love the Urban Decay list!!!! I have emailed them several times and never received a response. Thanks!!!!!!
  4. Looking for something with good pigment and long lasting. Would def prefer a kind that self sharpens. What kind does everyone prefer these days. Tired of the powder and brush app. Thanks!!!
  5. Is It True?

    Sadly they closed the restuarant sometime in the middle of last year I think.
  6. Aldi's

    Thank you David. When I looked at the packaging of several items, not a single one had the words gluten free that I looked at. This included a variety of nuts, nut mixes, as well as items like rice cakes, cereals, meats and such. I have not been able to find any info,other than a couple of their soymilk products are supposedly labeled gluten free, but the store I was in had none, and as they make a point here in the United States to avoid customer contact.
  7. An Aldi's grocery store opened not to far from me. Other than the obvious like produce, has anyone had any experience with them? What about their labeling policies? Just trying to figure out if I should even stop there for anything other than produce. Reading some of the labels appeared safe, but not sure as if their labeling policy is upfront about gluten as well. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!!!
  8. Has anyone eaten at Flips Patio Grill? They have locations in Fort Worth and Grapevine? (TX) I have to go there Friday for a meeting. I did call but they were not very helpful... Was hoping to hear from someone with experience....
  9. Support Groups In North Texas?

    I occasionaly attent the North Texas Gluten Intolerance Group's meetings, they meet in North Richland Hills monthly. There is a group on your side of town, Lone Star Celiac, which you can look up. DFWceliac.org Both have informational websites.
  10. I picked them up last month at Sprouts. Love them with peanut butter!
  11. Progresso Creamy Mushroom Soup

    General Mills has released a website that lists specific Gluten Free products. It clearly states that Gluten Free will be on the label. This list was updated Recently, and several of Progresso's soups have been removed. Including the Creamy Mushroom. http://liveglutenfreely.com/products/ Progresso Gluten Free Soups: "Progresso® Rich & Hearty• Rich & Hearty Chicken Corn Chowder 41196-91416 Progresso® Traditional• Traditional 99% Fat Free New England Clam Chowder 41196-91184 • Traditional Chicken Cheese Enchilada 41196-91513 • Traditional Manhattan Clam Chowder 41196-91111 • Traditional Southwestern Style Chicken 41196-91504 Progresso® Vegetable Classics• Vegetable Classics 99% Fat Free Lentil 41196-91181 • Vegetable Classics French Onion 41196-91093 • Vegetable Classics Hearty Black Bean 41196-91035 • Vegetable Classics Lentil 41196-91022" Progresso's website takes you to this.
  12. Progresso Creamy Mushroom Soup

    They have now removed the gluten free labeling, and are no longer saying that their regular soups, including cream of mushroom soup, are gluten free. I just got an update for my supermarket guide(Cecilia's) and they have said to remove most of progresso's soups that have the new labels.
  13. In the past, Everyday Minerals was heavily recommended on this forum. As they have removed their Gluten Free status, are people still feeling the same way about them? I didn't think to look before I placed an order, and now that I have placed a rather large order I am hoping I didn't make a huge mistake. Any thoughts? Ideas? Input? Reassurance?? Greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
  14. Burger King!

    When I worked at Burger King, they did not have a designated fryer. Also, the onion rings are placed directly next to the fries, which is why many people find fries in their rings and rings in their fries. The only thing that had a truly designated fryer was the fish, as no one wants their chicken smelling like fish. Sonic also says their fries are gluten free, but they fry them with the onion rings as well as tater tots. I have never found a location that has a designated fryer. I also find it interesting that Wendys FINALLY took fries of their gluten free options, as I had yet to find one with a designated fryer either.
