  1. I just got very sick. This morning I ate Cadbury mini eggs while filling Easter baskets. According to the ingredients, they should have been OK, but I can't think of any other reason I am so sick right now. The only other thing that could have caused a problem is the Starburst jelly beans, but I thought they were gluten-free also. I am kicking myself for doing this. How could I have eaten them without checking online first? Stupid, stupid, stupid.
  2. I do try to do that. However, I work at 5 different public schools and I can't eat most school lunches nor do I have time to go out to eat. I need to be able to bring food that is healthy and gluten-free. I have brought hemp milk with protein powder, cheese and gluten-free crackers, canned salmon and beans, fruit, gluten-free soups, and a few other things, but I am getting tired of always eating the same thing--or so it seems. The times I have bought school lunches and only eaten what I thought was gluten-free have been disasters. Once I ate tomato soup (contains wheat) and another time I ate what I thought was hamburger (it had some kind of artificial stuff in it that must have contained wheat--it was not all beef for sure). I am still learning but I do try to be very very careful. I guess I am looking for something I can easily pack into a lunchbox and still have some variety.
  3. I have been burned several times recently by foods that were supposed to be gluten-free but were not. I decided to look for an online source for gluten-free food that is reasonably priced and does not have high shipping costs. I live in Kansas. I thought a forum might be a better source of information rather than just googling for "gluten-free groceries." I would really appreciate it if you could recommend some reliable sources. I know I should search through the forum to find topics that relate to this but to be honest I am just not feeling that great and do not have the patience to do that right now. Please be kind--I have been sick for several days after eating something that clearly triggered a reaction. I would like to go back to feeling better without having to spend an arm and a leg at the local health food store. However, if I have to continue to do that, I will do so. Thank you for any assistance you can give me. I am relatively new to all of this and I want so much to continue to get my health back.
