  1. Okay, I have recently had another blood test. We went on a week long cruise. Now at first it was a secret that I was breaking my diet on the trip with my cousin. But eventually she found out like all mothers do (lol). So then when we get the blood test back and we both know that i probably had 30% gluten in my 100% diet i still had a negative score. Now how is this possible? I cheated for one week. I ate chocolate chip cookies, a dinner roll or two, slices of pizza, fish and chips, and some fries with flour breading. Now I still got negative. Then I asked my mom about my original test scores and she said they were 68. Less than 5 = Negative 5-8 = Neglect Greater than 8 = Positive This time I took the test after cheating and it was a 3. Shouldn't it have been higher? Someone please explain what this means to me.
  2. I am from LA in California. Anyone else from around here?
  3. Mcdonalds

    Well I have been working for 11 months in SoCal and the Angus has been around for a while here, now its nationwide. The Seasoning is exclusively for the Angus Burgers. You cannot eat it. Just tell the cashier that you do not want any angus seasoning on the burger. It is the last piece added to the sandwich. All the other burger patties are gluten free.
  4. Mcdonalds

    Okay, I would like to be the one to clear things up here. I currently work at McDonalds and live a gluten free life also. So i am a professional at what you can and cannot eat there. In the United States there is gluten in the french fries due to the beef flavoring as previously said. I have been trying to talk to the right person about getting this taken out but so far no luck. Here are some common items you would think is gluten free but not. Some of the dressings (READ THE INGREDIENTS) French Fries Angus Burgers (If you want this to be gluten free you must obviously not get the bun but also tell them no angus seasoning) Grilled Chicken (The Chicken for the salads and sandwiches has wheat also in it >_> Go figure. I ate them for 2 months and then found out) Hash Browns Nuts in the Fruit and walnut salad (Yogurt and fruit is alright) Snicker McFlurry The Pies (DUH) All the McCafe drinks are gluten free. (I personally love the Hot Chocolate) Watch out for the cross contamination with the ice cream (My sister bought some gluten free cones, got them to make the ice cream with theres, and had it dipped in the chocolate. BIG NO NO. The Chocolate dip sauce is cross contaminated with the regular cones so there is gluten in it.) Here is what I will eat there. Parfaits (No Granola) They are extremely nice about accommodating me with lettuce wraps. I even do this for the breakfast items =D (Egg McMuffin lettuce wrapped. Tastes better than it sounds) Due to this I can eat any burger there except the chicken, fish, and the angus seasoning. Salads with no chicken and specific dressings Breakfast items are mostly gluten free besides the bread of course. That's all I can think about right now. Let me know if this helps and if there are anymore questions.
