I shop at Safeway and Harris Teeter and feel like I’ve got a good bead on what’s what in terms of frozen meals, gluten-free of course. I get Evolve or Evol a lot, and sometimes Amys, and one or two others, but the boxes are gone so I can’t recall their names. But just wanted to check in with everyone to see if I’ve missed any. What I’m looking for is of course gluten-free, but also low sugar, and zero trans fats.
I would be concerned about possible long term damage rather than short term symptoms. Not everyone gets a response within hours of eating gluten. I certainly didn't. Even at the peak of trouble for me it took many weeks for things to change not hours. Certainly it's feasible in my mind that symptoms could take months when in the early stages.
Milk of magnesia is the only thing that works for me. 2Tb and a big glass of water. I used to have that problem all the time. I mean for years. Now I eat a serving of vegetable soup every day. It's homemade from bone broth we make ourselves. We get the bones from the local butcher, cover with water and cook for 24 hours. Add veggies (sometimes cooked in bacon grease!) and cook till tender. Then grind up in food processor and add coconut milk, from a can and add salt and pepper to taste. Keeps me absolutely regular unless I skip a day.
