I never did like coldcuts. My favorite lunchmeat is chicken that I cooked myself. I can shred it and put it on some Udi's with some melted cheddar and it beats any coldcut out there.

 

I used to like Kettle Brand Sea Salt chips the best, but it seems potatoes still bother me. But because of your DH I guess you can't have salt. I have in the past had unsalted potato chips and after the first few bites I realized I could really taste the potato. I found them to be better than salted chips. Hard to find though.

 

I've been eating Planter's cashews for my crunchy/salty snack lately. Or sometimes I get rice crackers.

Hi Bart.  WIth Dh, the thing is to avoid iodized salt so some salt is ok.  I'd have to call and see which kind of salt Kettle uses.  I have been eating Lays Stax b/c I have read on here that they are made on dedicated equipment.  They are so so.  I wish I could have nuts but I am allergic. 

 

I hear ya about cold cuts but sometimes I need something quick to grab to take with me.  I do prefer leftover chicken too.  I have been eating Hormel Naturals Roast Beef but it's a little rare for my tastes.

Not a cold cut eater, but I like Lays Classic chips. I eat way too many of them.

Another non cold-cut person but when I take sandwiches on the road I do like Natural Selections that is labeled gluten free on the package. 

 

My favourite flavours of chips are in England - roast chicken and thyme and prawn cocktail.  Here I LOVE Old Dutch ketchup chips.  I don't really like Lays that much as I prefer thicker chips.  I love to make my own chips, too.  Great - now I have a craving for chips.  :wacko:

Not a huge cold cut eater either, but when I do, I like Applegate Farms.

gluten-free, Casein free and no nitrates added and very tasty.

 

Since I cannot have foods high in histamines right now, I am not eating any deli meats at all.

 

As for potato chips, the hubs prefers Cape Cod but I like Lay's Classic.

I guess I'm different. I'm not a chip eater. I like them now and then, and when I get the urge I used to be all about the Pringles so now I just eat the Stax instead. Mostly because I am also a dipper. I don't eat chips because I want chips, I mostly use them as a dip delivery system. 

 

Meat though? Oh yeah, bring that stuff on! I stick almost exclusively to Boar's Head from the deli. I realize this isn't an option for everyone. I do one of two things to get it. I either go to the store right by my house which sells a few brands of meats, and simply show up and wait in front of the deli for it to open so I am the first customer and my meat is the first on the slicer for the day. The alternative is that there is a local store that sells exclusively Boar's Head meats. I go there most of the time as I do not do mornings. If I am truly desperate, I will go to the store by my house in the middle of the day and get them to clean a slicer for me. I've never had a problem with this, but I hate to inconvenience them.

Kettle and Zapps!!!! And don't get me going in Tostitos.

Unlike Boars Head and Trader Joes cold cuts. TJ's carries some Spanish and Italian combo meat packs marked gluten-free. Awesome.

I LOVE deli bologna but haven't had it in a very long time, afraid it might have gluten.

Try some Boar's Head Brand. The company rep assured me it was gluten-free (My Mom loves it and she wanted some)

She said it is very tasty indeed.

Why can't you have salt with DH?? I am newly diagnosed with celiac and have DH on my scalp as well but I got my diagnoses and the doctor sent me on my way. He didn't really give me a whole lot of pointers. I don't meant to take over this post but this sounds like something I should know.

Iodine is bad for DH and a lot of salt is iodized. I don't have DH and my heart breaks for those of you who do. Go to the DH section of the forum and read as many threads as you can and you will find a lot of tips on how to deal with it.

Thank you, I'll do that!! I had no idea!

Boar's Head deli meats are a huge cut above all others.  Really good stuff and I am not a big deli meat person.  I believe that all Boar's Head products are gluten-free, including their condiments.  Not cheap but safe to eat and delicious...there are no grains or fillers in them.

 

Applegate Farms are my second favorite.

    • I've had them about six or seven times at several different Starbucks locations.  My sister has, also.  Neither one of us have had any signs of getting glutened. They are served in a parchment paper bag that should be handed to you straight from the oven sealed.  I've heard many internet complaints about the bags being dusty, too many ingredients, unhealthy, etc., but honestly, they are pretty darned tasty! And, when you are traveling and hungry, they are even tastier.  They sell out quickly at most Starbucks, but I've been able to purchase one as late at 6 p.m.  
    • I wish they didn't use " gluten" as a headline.  People abuse and starve children for a variety of " reasons".  gluten-free was just one they picked, it could have been paleo or kosher or whatever... 
    • Ugh!  This again..... first ...it was one person...not a study... just someone's speculation. if I am remembering correctly - no one actually tested the retainer. The kid was a 12-16 yr old an drew could have gotten caught eating gluten, etc, etc, etc.   And then those internet folks who love to spread " bad news" or  use that stuff to further their purpose, jumped on it.  And then let's talk to a chemist or plastic scientist - if the plastic leaches our actual proteins, like gluten, wouldn't the plastic piece break down after a while? welcome to the world of Celiac internet myths.   adding - none of the Celiac Centers, Associations, etc have warned people not to use a retainers.
    • Ok, so, here goes. Today I had my teeth cleaned, and this was my first time there since I've been diagnosed. I double checked that their tooth polish is gluten free, and they told me it's safe. I feel fine. Tonight I was at Walmart looking at buying some mouth wash (I was scolded, as per usual), and I Googled gluten free mouth wash. I stumbled upon an article about gluten free products and dental stuff. The person mentioned a study that was released stating that a child's retainer was making her sick because it contained gluten - in the plastic. I had braces when I was a teenager and had them out about 12 years ago. I got one of those old school retainers. The kind with the plastic part for the roof of your mouth and the metal wire that goes around the front. It's cuuuuute. Let me tell you. Anyway, I decided to delve into this more, because I don't know if my retainer is safe now. I found an old thread on here where it looks like people were debating this, and for the most part, seasoned Celiac's agree that it's a bunch of bunk.  Do people have opinions? I know that many of you do a great deal of research into Celiac and that you may have some information. I'm looking for real science - not fear tactics. I wear my retainer religiously, My mom paid almost $5,000 for my teeth to look like they do, and I'm not about to let them get shnaggled again. I'm 29, but they still move if I don't wear my retainer. I've been debating getting a new one - one of the plastic ones that you can't really see, but I don't want to shell out the dough for that until I have to. I'm shocked mine has held up as long as it has.  When I was diagnosed back in November my TTG was >100. Two months later it was 12. So I assume that my little retainer isn't causing much damage, as that's pretty significant. I have to go back in July to have my blood tested again. In the meantime, is this something to stew over? I have no idea where my retainer was made, or who made it. It was a long time ago and I bet if I called my orthodontist to find out who the manufacturer was they wouldn't be able to tell me. Maybe I'm wrong. It was 2004 or 2005, so I'm assuming they won't know at this point. But I could check if people think I should. I feel fine, for the most part. But I was a silent Celiac when I was diagnosed so I don't trust my body to not tell me if I'm being glutened. I'll just say that.  Thanks!
    • They are awesome! But they are not available at Starbucks at some places--like hospitals. Pity!
