  1. I would not eat anything by Amy's. I tried their pizza one time and had severe hives the rest of the night. Yes, the food may not have wheat in it but I think the cross contamination at Amy's is a huge problem. Maybe they've gotten better but either way, I won't eat anything of Amy's. If you're looking for a good pizza, I love the Glutino brand (and it isn't $10).
  2. Developing Intolerances?

    Thank you for the information. I will cut these foods out for a bit and hopefully I'll be feeling better soon.
  3. I was wondering if it is possible to develop an allergy or intolerance by eating a large amount of a certain food? I am now allergic to wheat and I was wondering if it was because I was eating pasta, bread, or some wheat product every single day, often times at multiple meals, then one day in class I had pretzels and broke out in severe hives. After that, everytime I had anything with wheat in it, I was covered in hives head to toe in a matter of minutes. So, I stopped eating wheat and was much better. I have been eating a lot of brown rice products in pasta and bread as well as products with potato. Lately I have been having bad 'D' and stomach pain and I have come to the conclusion that I am having these bouts right after I eat brown rice/brown rice flour or potatoes. I ate mostly applesauce and drank water all of last week because I was feeling so sick and was feeling much better. Today, I had a brown rice tortilla wrap for lunch and my dad made beef stew for dinner (with potatoes) and feel horrible. Is it possible I have developed an intolerance to these things as well? Thanks for any input...I'm so tired and frustrated of dealing with this and I really just wish I could pinpoint what was causing these symptoms. Thanks.
  4. I don't have a recipe but the brown rice wraps by Food for Life are the best I have found.
  5. Hey everyone. So, I love the Bell & Evans gluten-free chicken tenders however I find them much too expensive (around $8 for a box of, maybe 5, tenders) so I rarely get them. I was at Costco the other day and they had a 3.25 lb bag of Bell & Evans gluten-free chicken tenders for $13.99. I was so excited and thought if anyone else were a Costco member it might be worth it to go out and pick up a bag or two!
  6. I have eaten Junior Mints without any problems many times, and I have also been fine with the peanut butter m&m's. I have never had a problem with any candy as long as there is no barley malt, wheat, obviously, or been processed in a facility with wheat.
  7. I had an immediate reaction to Amy's...wound up covered in hives the rest of the night. I'll never buy Amy's products again.
  8. When I first found out I was allergic to wheat I went out and got an Amy's pizza, which claims it is gluten-free but if you read the label it states that it was made in a facility where wheat is present. Needless to say, within an hour I was covered in hives and my face and hands were totally swollen. I don't think I will ever attempt to eat anything by Amy's again.
  9. Pf Changs

    That's unfortunate you had a negative experience at PF Changs. I've been eating there for a little bit now and I have never had any problems. They always put bright orange stickers on the containers that say gluten-free and when I am picking it up they always go through the order with me so I can see everything is gluten-free. And as for the difference between the gluten-free and not gluten-free noodles, I would assume the wheat comes from the sauce. If it were me though, I would have gone back to the restaurant and made them make me a new order with gluten-free ingredients. Oh, and I would try the fried rice with chicken and veggies, it's delicious =).
