Hi,

I live in a hurricane evacuation zone, so I am always looking for ready-to-eat meals for our evacuation kit. In light of the fires out west, thought some people might appreciate the additional convenience food option.

I just saw these ready to eat meals from Hormel and thought they would work great for evacuations or emergency lunches at school. I called Hormel to verify they are gluten-free and they will label for dairy (we need gluten-free/CF). I found these at Wal-mart. They are small microwavable containers.

Chicken and Rice

BBQ Beef and Beans

Sweet and Sour Chicken

Dinty Moore Beef Stew

Thoughts and prayer to all those who have been evacuated for the fires.

I have had the beef stew and it was good. Nice on a wintry day.

The Hormel Chili is also gluten-free, there is one version that isn't, I think its the Turkey Chili. Hormel really has a nice set of things that are gluten free.

Wow! Thanks for sharing! I saw these in the store the other day but only found the beef stew. I'd love to find the sweet and sour chicken for my daughter. These would be great for those lazy nights when I want to feed the kids fast!

Some of the Healthy Choice micro-bowl soups are gluten free. I've had the beef pot roast soup and it was not too bad.

Thanks for the other ideas!

I was walking around Walgreens yesterday waiting on a prescription and i found Thai Kitchen noodle cart products, on the front of the package it says GLUTEN FREE, so naturally i grabbed one and was reading it..so I bought 3 different ones..i had the Pad Thai..it wasn't to bad..you just add boiling water. I'm sure most of you have tried these, but being a new celiac, it was exciting to me to see those. I looked in my grocery store and i never saw them there..Now i'm going back to investigate further and see if they can order in some Thai products.

Thanks for posting this! I didn't get evacuated either this time or 4 years ago, but I will definitely keep this list - and the items on it - on hand because no doubt there will be a next time!

A friend whose husband grew up in Miami told me the Cuban way to eat chili is with rice. I have tried the Hormel Chili with Minute Rice (cooking is not my thing - if you couldn't guess) and it is quite tasty and filling.

I actually talked to Red Cross recently because I wanted to hear the offical response...and officially we fit into the group called "Special needs". The emergency shelters are not able to make gluten-free meals or other allergy/diet specific meals. You are not able to bring a camping propane stove either. So in short, all of us Celiacs and severly allergic people need to apply for acceptance inthe special needs shelters or leave town before the evacuation order is given.

Consider these shelters have 1500 or more people in there. Consider the cross contamination nightmare in the food zone. For those of us with Nut allergies, every surface will be contaminated very quickly. So I for one cannot even imagine getting glutened and needing to use a portapotty for a hour. I think I would die first. Then add the high risk of my kid going into anaphylactic shock...how exactly do the EMS teams handle an emergency like that when roads are gone, hospitals inaccessible, etc. I will never step foot into a shelter. For that reason, we have a large quantity of food, juice, snacks, water, dog food, etc on hand and all the camping equipment we need to leave the danger zone and ride an emergency out in a camp site in GA if needed.

Just thought the fires in CA were a good wake up call for all of us to check out our own options for evacuations/emergencies. Hope everyone dealing with the fires made it ok.

    • So... his gp did a genetic test - positive - and has referred him to a gi. His paed and diabetes educator have ordered the genetic test and another coeliac screen for 3 months and then they will decide if he needs to see a specialist because they're still convinced its most likely a false positive. Why test at diagnosis of diabetes if they don't believe the results anyway? Why is this disease so confusing for the medical world?  Anyway we're sticking with the gp and hopefully it won't be too long before he gets into a gi.  It seems that blood tests don't matter in any situation. If they can find any excuse to invalidate them they jump at it.  Makes me so infuriated I just laugh about how I already seem to know more. 
    • Thank you! I have been considering lactose, though I'm reluctant to remove more things from her diet. She has not had the classic lactose intolerance symptoms of diarrhea, gas, or bloating, though I know she could still have trouble with it. She's been on the medication for less than a week, so it's not the cause of her symptoms. I did not call the manufacturer but it is listed as safe on glutenfreedrugs.com (under the brand name periactin). It was prescribed by a pediatric GI who specializes in celiac. The first question my daughter had for the doctor was whether the medication is gluten-free, and she told us it was.   
    • cyclinglady, I think Joseph is hoping to exclude celiac disease.   I feel for him, as I also had a hard time accepting my daughter's celiac.      I had this gene test done hoping our GI doctor made a terrible mistake.   But now I have triple prove that my daughter really does have it! I agree with you and others, that if biopsy confirmed celiac disease, you do have celiac disease. (But on occasion, doctors can be wrong, right?) However, I have a distant relative (not related by blood) who thought she had celiac diease for 10 years (no biopsy done), lived a strict gluten free life style, but still suffered from health issues, ended up in the mayo clinic, and found out that she did not have celiac.    She did not have the celiac gene.
    • Our doctor ordered the Prometheus Celiac Plus test for us.   It is some sort of in depth celiac blood test.   This test report showed  which celiac gene my daughter has.   I think you can ask your GI for a celiac blood test with EMA.   When I asked for the EMA test, we got this Celiac plus results back.   I believe Prometheus is the name of the lab. Our insurance paid for this test.   If your insurance won't pay for it, I know there is a lab in Colorado that offer this test for a few hundred bucks.   You have to google for it.   I forgot their name.
    • Why?  Some 35% of the population carries the genes that could develop into celiac disease.  But only a few actually develop it.  It is used to exclude celiac disease and not to diagnose it.  There are some outlier genes too that have been discovered recently, so the gene test is not perfect.   My daughter has tested negative on the antibodies test.  She will have to get retested in the future. But we will not get the gene test.  It may impact her ability to get life insurance or maybe even health!  Just something to consider.
