Thankfully I have a total notch omelet maker in house.  If I didn't, those sound pretty good.

My husband makes the BEST omelets ever...he's gotten quite good at it.  However, he doesn't like egg white omelets so doesn't make those. I use these when time is limited...which is often.  I was very surprised at how good these are. They can be difficult to keep in stock at my local grocery store.....I think the gluten-free people have discovered them.  ;)

I think they would be good for work or traveling, too. I haven't seen them but I'll look.

I have not had an egg roll in a LONG time! I hope I can find those at a store near me! We went to the city today, over 2 hours round trip and found the frozen Bistro meals! We do buy some processed foods because my poor husband does most of the cooking (I am not able to do it any longer)  plus he works 11 hours a day, 6 days per week at 62 years old so he needs the break sometimes.

 

Thanks for the suggestion Bunnie. :D

 

Edited to add, I checked on locations of the egg rolls and none are sold within a 100 miles of me.

I am currently eating an Artisan Bistro gluten-free frozen " meal". This one is the Cheddar Beef Bake. I microwaved it and its pretty tasty. Not very big or cheesy but has a nice spicyness. Only 250 calories so it can't be very big. Not sure about the price as I got them on sale for about $2.89.

Organic, grass- fed no hormone beef.

I will buy more.

Oh wow!  Finally something my daughter can eat!  Between her needing whole grains, picky eating and food intolerances there isn't much in the way of convenience foods for her.  But it looks like she can eat the tuna bake.  And tuna isn't something that she gets often because I can't eat it.  But she loves it.  And she loves peas.  And they sell it at a store near where my dad is.  So I'll look for it.  Thanks!

Thanks Karen, these sound really good!  I am like someone else who posted, I don't even look at most things like this anymore.  But it might be time to change that.

I just tried Tandoor Chef Chicken Pad Thai and it was really good.  It says "Gluten Free" though not certified and it does say made in a facility that processes tree nuts, milk, wheat and sesame, so not for everyone.

 

Ingredients are:  Rice Noodles, Chicken Breast, Onions, Bean Sprouts, Milled Cane Sugar, Scallions, Peanuts, Carrots, Canola Oil, Vinegar, Radishes, Organic Wheat-Free Soy Sauce, Red Chili, Coriander, Garlic, Salt, Tamarind, Ginger, Basil, Potato Starch, Dextrose.

 

Have Celiac and I'm still pretty new to this - did I take a foolish chance given the "made in a facility..." warning?  Ate about 90 minutes ago and feel fine.  I'd like to have this again.

 

Can anyone advise?

 

Thanks.

I don't think that is foolish at all.  All the ingredients are gluten-free and the CYA of shared facility doesn't mean wheat ever gets near that particular product.  Someone very wise has posted -- most of our kitchens are "shared facilities".

 

Should you find you are reacting to products with a shared facility stmt...then remove them.

I love frozen meals, because they make it easy to come home to a quick meal and keep me from trying to get takeout, which can be a challenge and still sometimes turns out badly from a gluten-free standpoint. Amy's are my favorites since I'm vegetarian as well -- I find that a lot of the ones without a "Gluten Free" banner across the top are gluten-free...they'll have it on the bottom corner of the package instead. They do have some dairy free and soy free options. Not sure about corn free but I would think there would at least be a couple of options there. I really like their DF/SF/gluten-free mac and cheese, but I don't have it often because it's high fat/calorie.

Thank you for posting the info karen:-)

I have a teenager who is eating a lot. Growing a lot too. So I am having a hard time keeping up with home cooked meals for him. I feel better when he is out at a friends house to send food with him.

Have you tried these? More like what the other teens would be eating.

Now I just have to find some of those products.  It look's like there has been another merger/buyout between Julie's and Glutenfreeda.  Now I have to figure out when this happened?

I think quite some time ago, judging based on the ice cream sandwiches made

with Glutenfreeda cookies and Julie's ice cream I've seen on shelves for a few

years now. That may have been a precursor to a merger or something tho. I do

know that Julie's ice cream is quite tasty!

    • You're right on the extremes, I'm sitting in a gluten-free food festival right now and still unsure if to eat anything which I guess means I've hit the extreme end of the scale. Seem to be noticing the recovery pattern over the course of 6 weeks or so after a gluten hit. Will be very interesting to see what the blood test readings come out like when I eventually get them done again. And thanks for the good wishes
    • Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.
    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see! 
    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
