Yesterday I was in a rush all day. Hubbs and I had a big plan for dinner and it just didn't pan out. So he ended out having a pizza thing we have had in the freezer , I had a Gluten Free Pizza in the other Freezer. I took one or two bites of mine and pitched it!! It was disgusting!! So it was getting late so I ate a banana then a lil later  I had some gluten-free, Corn Chips. Well I woke up about 4 am with the worst gut ache!! It felt like someone punched me in the gut. Lucky for me it was "Just Gas" lol but now this is the second time this has happened to me!! The 1st time I don't know what I ate. I do know I am not used to eating prepackaged foods. So maby that was it? Maby all the salt that was in it? What would make me get so bloated and full of gas? OMG it was so painful!! Then in a couple hrs I was fine! :) Thank goodness!! I will not eat anymore Corn chips or a bite of another frozen gluten-free pizza!! Thats for sure!! Maby just a fluke? Sure was weird!!

It may have been a delayed reaction from the Taco Bell that you recently ate. For some of us our reactions can be delayed by days so it isn't always the last thing we ate that we are reacting to.

You may not be able to handle processed food for now.  I tried a bar once and found no need to try that again!  Sometimes even things that don't list gluten are cross contaminated.  Be happy with what you can cook at home is my motto!

Ohhhh Ok really ? I understand about the processed food. But b4 gluten-free It would just hit me like a rock! Hmm Well either way I guess that won't happen again!! I should of just eaten a banana and been done! Maby had another banana. I will learn! Sometime! Generally I don't eat processed foods. Or very often anyway. Only because b4 going gluten-free I knew processed was bothering me. I didn't know it was Gluten.  Maby I am healing so it didn't hit me like a rock? Anyway well I am glad it didn't go thru me like usual thats for sure. Thanks!! And really I didn't even put the TAco Bell experience into the equation. I always think the night b4. I guess I need to think beyond that. Altho I have been really really careful lately. Trying anyway ^_^

When I first went gluten free (for about 4-5 months) a little corn didn't bother me.  Fresh local corn was good.  But too much other corn products bothered me.  Bananas give me a lot of the Celiac symptoms.  I'm not saying that bananas have gluten - its just a food I know I have never had good luck with. 

 

Eating at Taco Bell makes me wonder where else you might be eating?  Maybe you should cut that stuff out for a few months and give your gut a chance to heal?

Yes KarenG Usually it is a restaurant that I get a salad from. And I usually order a salad that just doesn't come with croutons. And of course the dressing on the side. This is actually the 1st time I had went to a fast food in months. Well unless I get a pop. So yea I don't think I have been Glutening myself from eating out. I thought I was being good by checking. but Oopsi! I won't do it again... I have been trying to take care of myself!! I didn't know about the banana's I have been putting them in my smoothies, but not all the time. I have been pretty gassy also but nothing like the other night. And the corn chips were the Gluten Free Frito's ...Like I said I don't eat that stuff.. But I did because I thought they were all Gluten free .... gluten-free doesn't always mean safe I guess... I will watch the banana's Thanks for the tip.

A salad isn't always safe in some places.

 

I did not mean to say that you need to watch bananas! In fact most of that answer isn't what I said.  I just tried to show that there are other foods that sometimes can cause the same "symptoms" in some people!

 

I think about all I can say right now, as this is getting frustrating for me,  is - Use some common sense!

Fritos chips didn't sit well with me.  So I don't eat them anymore.  You might like Mission brand chips as an alternative.  If you think the pizza might be a problem, keep the ingredient list and review it next time you have an issue.  See if there are matches to any of the ingredients.  Also, if it was an Amy's pizza, that might be the problem.  Some people have reported issues with Amy's products in the past.

    • Hi Matt,  Thanks for taking the time to reply!  I completely agree haha.  Thanks for the links - I'll give them a read over!  I think it was a mixture of the first time travelling with being gluten-free and the added bonus of the language barrier, it made me dread meal times when usually food is the first thing I think about when travelling to new places! Again, I think the planning element was also a factor, not being able to walk past a nice bakery without walking in - why do most Berlin train stations have bakeries in everyone?!?! THE SMELL!!!  Haha, good excuse! Could have used that in the hotel restaurant (arrived late the first night) and the only avail dish was a dry chicken Caesar salad (literally 3 thin slices of chicken, 5 cherry tomatoes and a plate of lettuce).  I am I'll give the website a look over too - thank you! My app's with my consultant are every 6 months, basically was just sent away with no info/advice given and feeling the struggle now that reality has set in that this is for good!  Hope you are well! 
    • Gluten is a protein smaller then blood,bleach does not kill it as it is not a germ. I would replace scratched pans. baking dishes, tubaware, wooden utensils, colanders, etc. Throw out crumby condiment jars and any non gluten-free spices and condiments. Cast Iron can be saved and some metal utensils by putting in your oven self clean cycle, 500F will destroy the protein. I always tell people easy ways to get started on new cookware, nordicware microwave cook ware, omelette makers, steamers, rice cookers, grilling plates (do not forgot the splatter cover), This way you can have a cheap and easy meals, a new crockpot and use crockpot liners is great for soups, I suggested a combo rice cooker/crockpot/steamer as a great investment. OH if you want a nice clean safe prep area/counter/eating place mat, look up freezer paper/butcher paper. I did a post on where to get it in bulk awhile back. But laying it out is perfects, and makes clean up a breeze. Foil sheets in baking dishes works great for a extra precaution but if you have any with baked on stuff or scratched look at getting new ones. PS took me over  months to start feeling much better. Sometimes the improvement is minor and you have to think back to the worst you had. It does improve but normally big changes are after a year.

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!
