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.

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.

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.

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.

    • About 10 days ago I think I ate most of a wheat tortilla (the restaurant stuck to their story that it was a corn tortilla like I had ordered, but I don't believe them - I'm pretty sure it was wheat). Nothing happened in the first couple of days, then I developed intermittent chest tightness, which was one of my primary symptoms before my diagnosis, the others being bloating, food sitting like a rock in my stomach after eating, exercise intolerance, and weight loss.  Anyone else get chest tightness as a symptom of being glutened? I haven't felt this symptom since I became very strict with cross-contamination.
    • I had 23andme testing which showed I have genes DQ2.5 and DQ8. When I learned this I decided to stop eating gluten to PREVENT getting celiac, but didn't worry about cross-contamination. A year later I got sick, and eventually had an endoscopy which showed Marsh 1. My blood tests were negative, as one would expect for anyone eating gluten-free. My gastroenterologist told me I could either decide to live like a celiac, or do the full 12-week gluten challenge. I cleaned up my kitchen and started being very careful with eating away from home, and my symptoms went away.
    • The beginning of your story sounds very much like mine. I stopped eating gluten regularly when I adopted a mostly paleo diet years ago (bonus: my lifelong canker sores disappeared!). When I got 23andme testing done and learned I have both high-risk celiac genes, I stopped eating gluten altogether, thinking I couldn't trigger celiac if I didn't have gluten exposure. But, since I didn't have a celiac diagnosis or symptoms, I wasn't careful about cross-contamination.  Then I got sick. My symptoms were vague: bloating, food sitting like a rock in my stomach after eating, exercise intolerance, weight loss, chest tightness. I had a bunch of tests, tried omeprazole, and eventually had an endoscopy. Because I hadn't eaten gluten in a year, I didn't expect any results suggesting celiac, but sure enough, my biopsies came back as Marsh 1: inconclusive, but all the other reasons to cause this result had already been ruled out or were very unlikely. I then had bloodwork for celiac, which was negative, as expected for anyone on a gluten-free diet. At this point I was sent to a gastroenterologist, who said she could not definitively diagnose me with celiac, and that my options were either to assume I have celiac and live like a celiac, or to do the full 12-week gluten challenge and then repeat all the testing. i didn't want to take the risk of triggering another autoimmune disease by doing the gluten challenge, so I cleaned up my kitchen, replaced my cutting boards, cast iron pans, and anything plastic or silicone, and confined gluten to one corner of the counter. I started being the annoying person at restaurants and potlucks asking a thousand questions. And my symptoms went away. i still don't know whether I have celiac. I struggle with the restrictions it places on my life outside of my home (travel, social life). Periodically I wonder whether I shoukd just do the gluten challenge so I know. But I'm afraid of the possible risks. Your allergist did you a great disservice my telling you to go on a gluten-free diet without testing you for celiac. But that ship has sailed. At this point I would say your choices are the same as mine: either do a complete 12-week gluten challenge and then retest, or decide to live as if you had a firm celiac diagnosis. It can be a tough decision. Good luck and I hope you figure it out and get better very soon!
