Are you stating that Torani's website is out of date? If so, what is your source?

 

http://www.torani.com/faqs Under product-related questions.

I  am stating that caramel color and vanilla flavoring are not a gluten concern any more.   If you review the thread, you may find some valuable information that you seek. :)

 

EDIT:  Peter provided some relevent links, while I pondered my reply.

I'm just not entirely sure that caramel color or vanilla flavoring is the issue with the Torani syrups. The list of the ones that contain it isn't all inclusive of all of the tan or caramel-colored syrups or ones with vanilla flavor, for that matter. I'll just stay away from them -- I was just bringing it up as an example of gluten-containing ingredients not being disclosed on the label when the manufacturer states on their website that it does contain gluten.

 

For example, the salted caramel does not contain gluten.

It can be if you use a lot of specialty items. However, most meals can be made gluten free. Rice or potatoes are good as a starch for meals.

Do you have a crock pot? Toss in some chicken, with some sort of veggie, and let it cook it.

And don't forget, ziplock bags are your friends. Make big meals, portion them out and freeze them. I only cook once or twice a week. I have a freezer full of meals I made myself that I just grab and microwave during the work week.

In my area of northern California, I find Sprouts supermarket to be reasonable. One of our big costs is bread... my wife loves bread and has not been able to give it up even though I try to cook other whole foods. They often have Udi's bread on sale and I buy a whole bunch and freeze it.

 

I agree with other people who have posted here. There are lots of foods that are naturally gluten free, so switch to those kinds of foods. If you stick to things that are traditionally made from wheat it get's difficult to keep food costs low.

 

For instance, buy corn tortillas which are gluten free from several low cost brands rather than a tortilla made from a mix of other gluten free flours and made to "look" like other wheat tortillas or wraps.

 

I have a question to anyone out there that may be able to answer it. How does anyone afford to shop glutin free is there a good place to shop that is affordable. I have a house of 5 and my pockets aren't deep enough to afford the cost of glutin free foods. Help

It does sound like you're getting glutened by something -- I would start digging. Check for sources of cross contamination first. Pots that have had pasta cooked in them previously (I was reacting to mine because it had a white film inside that we could not scrub off that I can only assume is gluten from wheat pasta), strainers, anything porous. Check your medications and/or vitamins. Do you drink herbal tea? Some of those have gluten. Lipstick/gloss/balm?

I thought I had all of the gluten out of my diet and then 6 months in I began accidentally glutening myself with some fries I thought I had checked. It was minute amounts, and only every few days, but it was enough to make me feel slightly ill. I had to go back to checking every label before I ate anything (not a bad practice anyway). I think you might want to recheck your labels and cooking appliances.  Check your baking suppies too - sometimes stuff like sugar or baking powder can be contaminated.

 

As for the cost of easy meals on the go, I agree with the others that you'll need to do prep work and use things like crockpots. We eat a LOT of leftovers, and that helps. You can always push back dinner and eat later and make some protein bars or smoothies to pack along on the go.

are you keeping a food journal?  oh, snap, are you kissing your husband.  that got me in the beginning!   

 

honestly, everybody starts out bumpy.  i cried in the grocery store :(  i quit eating, too, for a day or so - i still do every now and again when something has got me and i can't figure it out.  even now, i get all carried away and eat something with many components (ie:  cuban sandwich yummmmmm) but it made me sick so i ate one of the components (ham, cheese, pork, pickles, olive salad) each day to see what was giving me heartache.  (turns out it was the vinegar in a particular brand of olive salad - said it was gluten free but my guts begged to differ loolz)  so i switch brands or make my own.  

 

hope you are feeling better soon

It is so frustrating to me. I cant figure it out and I read everything but then I hear that there are other things that seem to give people problems. Like Whey because things i get glutin free say they have whey in them and also diary. I take lactose pills but im not sure if it's helping......

    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • Thank you for your advices, Kareng and Ennis_TX. Hope you guys are still doing well with celiac. I will ask my doctor about the preparation for the Celiac screening and lymph node checking. By the way, do these test cost much? To Ennis_TX: Did you do any test or check for your lymph nodes, when you noticed them swelling. And did you have many of them? did you member their size? Were they hurt you. Sorry for asking to much. My doctor just told me do ultra sound. I dont know should I ask her to do another tests to make sure the reason of swelling lymph nodes
    • IF your still getting cramps look into supplementing with Magnesium, either Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors best in the glycinate powder. Depending on other symptoms and the way your body works depends on which form is best. Calm is best if you have hard stools, do not go daily with a BM you start it off small 1/4tsp and work it up to the full dose over a week or two. If you get loose stools cut back as you dose this to tolerance. Doctors best is easier on the stomach and will not cause D or loose stools like Calm but can cause you to really relax too much and cause very vivid dreams (this is a good sign that it is working) You will notice the cramps lessen with both of these. The cramps in combination with the numbness is a sign of magnesium deficiency which is caused by your damaged intestines normally and can be made worse by PPIs and a few other issues.
