  1. Starbucks Can Kiss My ....

    I went to a Starbucks the other day, for the first time since I was diagnosed Celiac. I ordered an iced mocha and felt really dizzy and sick about 20 minutes after drinking half of it. So I would have to agree that CC is pretty risky at these places. During the fall, they always have seasonal drinks that have little crumbly toppings etc. Blargh. I miss my mocha drinks though - need to find a place that can guarantee gluten free!!
  2. Completely gluten-free Resturaunts?

    Sweet Sin Bakery in Baltimore, MD. It's soooo good! Not only do they have amazing cupcakes and desserts, but they also crank out super-tastey breakfast, lunch and dinner options. They also make really good breads! I love eating there because I can relax and not worry about CC. It's unfortunately about 30 minutes away - so I only get to go occasionally. Also, Lillit Cafe in Bethesda, MD specialized in gluten free stuff. They have a little market inside where they sell gluten-free goods - their menu is pretty extensive. They make the best gluten-free crabcakes! (they also have a regular menu - so not totally gluten free.)
  3. Uno's Restaurant

    I recently ate at an UNO's, but just decided to order the cob salad and felt fine afterward. I did notice that there was a veggie gluten-free pizza option on the menu too. (I live in the DC area.) It's just so easy to get CC in restaurants, it always makes me nervous to eat out anymore unless I know they have dedicated a separate part of their kitchen for gluten free cooking/meal prep.
  4. I've had pretty good luck with this brand. I especially like their pad thai. One thing to mention is that not all of their stuff is gluten free. You need to be sure it specifies it as such on the box and then I always double-check! My husband had brought home a sweet chili one that actually had soy sauce in it.
  5. I have always thought that wheat fields were so beautiful...swaying in the sun. Kinda depressing that they'll make us sick! But yeah, be careful on windy days when it stirs up particles!
  6. I recently bought the 365 everyday herbal mint scent of shampoo from Whole Foods. It's basically their generic brand. I love the smell and the fact that the products are natural and sulfide free. But I read on a different post that the 365 shampoo is not gluten free. Here's the ingredients: Ingredients: Aqua (water), sodium myristoyl sarcosinate, cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, disodium cocoamphodipropionate, sodium cocoamphoacetate, sodium chloride, glucono- lactone, sodium benzoate, phenethyl alcohol, glyceryl caprylate, citric acid, hydrolyzed soy protein, panthenol, arnica montana (arnica flower extract), thymus vulgaris (thyme extract), polysorbate 20, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary oil), mentha piperita (peppermint oil), mentha spicata (spearmint oil), mentha arvensis (cornmint oil), citrus medica limonum (lemon oil), lavandula angustifolia (lavender oil), thymus vulgaris (thyme oil). anybody see anything in there that means wheat, barley, rye or oats??? I do not see anything.... I am just hoping that there isn't anything as I bought the shampoo, conditioner AND lotion! They had some other shampoos (dessert essence brand) listed as gluten free with a little tag, but when I read the ingredients, they had hydrogenated wheat protein in them. I wasn't so sure about that!! Help!! Can I safely use 365 brand??
