gluten-free Ready To Eat Meals From Hormel

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.

    • Solid advice. Wish that more people would consider that this might be necessary for some and not entirely paranoid. Could very well be airborne, but most likely culprit is something you're eating. That said, baking, construction/open drywall, farms/animal food and bulk/flour aisles in grocery stores are legitimate worries. I was recently having frustrating problems with random but minor flare-ups, and have eliminated almost all packaged food (even gluten-free) for a bit. It has helped tremendously. I hope that perhaps my sensitivity levels will calm down in a few years, but not being itchy and scabby is worth almost any cumbersome restriction. I think for me the problem has largely been to do with the use of oats in many dedicated factories (even gluten-free oats make me very, very sick). I came to this when lodging a complaint/notifying a company that I'd had an issue with one of their GFCO certified products. I figured that mistakes could happen, and could not imagine anything else I'd eaten that day could be a culprit (had only eaten veggies/rice/meat) so I contacted them to report it. Their response made me quite sure that the lot my food came from was fine from a legal/GFCO gluten-free perspective, but revealed that they make all their gluten-free products on the same line - which include granolas, oat flour etc. When I investigated it a bit more, I realized that many of the gluten-free products that I suspected were causing me problems (but had no real basis for why) were all made by companies that also make lots of gluten-free oat products. Previously, I had only avoided gluten-free products that contained oats as an explicit ingredient, and had never considered that the residues from gluten-free oats could be problematic. Unfortunately, now that gluten-free oats have been legalized in Canada, it is very difficult to find companies that do not use them in some capacity, which is why I axed most of the processed gluten-free stuff. Presumably, because the oats are considered gluten-free, there is no reason to clean the line or employ any allergen food safety practices from the company's perspective. While this may not be a concern outside of those who are super sensitive, it might worth considering if you are still having problems or have a known issue with oats. At the very least, avoiding most processed gluten-free foods (breads/flours/pastas/baked goods) seems to have helped me a lot, even if minor contamination with oats is not the true culprit. I would vouch for mostly sticking with rice, dry beans, root veggies and fresh corn (from the cob) as complex carbohydrate sources for a bit, even though it's a bit inconvenient.   
    • Hi everyone! I'm obviously new to the forums, but I'm also new to the idea of celiac/gluten free/etc.  Lemme give you the Cliff Notes version of my journey: 1992: I'm diagnosed with CFS/ME. It sucks and I'm tired and sick all the time. 2014: I'm still tired and sick all the time, so I decide to become a vegetarian. Maybe that'll help, right? I began getting deathly ill when I ate. Vomiting and diarrhea, everything I eat seems to be a problem.  I go to a doctor who runs a million tests. Nothing turns up. In among those tests is a celiac panel which has this result: no antibody detected and no serological evidence of celiac disease. No cause is ever found. I continue to suffer. Later in 2014: I notice that my stomach issues are triggered every time I eat a raw vegetable. I can eat bread or pasta no problem. Fake chicken? Great. Have a salad? I'm dying. This is a problem, as I'm a vegetarian. I nix the fresh veggies and continue to live my life. 2015: I'm diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I realize that the problem with vegetables is worse than I thought. I can no longer eat cooked spinach, can't have lettuce on my sandwich, and stealing a single slice of cucumber set my stomach on edge for days. I'm becoming hypersensitive to veggies in food and protecting myself from their evil influence; my stomach thanks me. 2017: After a relative peaceful period, the stomach issues are back, worse. So I go to a new doctor (I've moved) and he recommends a colonoscopy and EGD (no labs). This was done yesterday. The full results will of course have to wait for the biopsies to be examined, but apparently there is scalloping "through the entire duodenum".  Doc told my partner that he believes I have celiac and discharged me with orders to go gluten free. Now I'm sitting here alternately considering drinking alone in the dark and throwing things--I guess I'm wavering between the stages of depression and anger on my trip through grief for my lost favorite foods. But here's where the confusion comes in...everything I'm seeing says that I should give up bread and eat more veggies, but veggies make me sick. Does anyone else have this reaction to vegetables? Meanwhile I'm thinking back to the labs done in 2014 and wondering if its possible to have a negative test and still be positive for celiac? Also, what actually happens if you DON'T go gluten free?
    • Hi Guys, I just thought of giving update on my case. I finally got my EGD done and unfortunately, the conclusion is I have Celiac. There was Villus atrophy and presence of Inflammatory Cells, looks like the atrophy of Villi isn't that worse yet, but of course, I need to get on strict gluten free diet right away. I am planning to see a Dietitian next week to have a healthy gluten free diet plan. Any suggestions from the experts in here are most welcome and appreciated. Thanks  
    • Hi this is my first time commenting but I just had to. I too get chest tightness. I have had it flare up several times with no answers. I was diagnosed with celiac about 6 months ago and am pretty confident this is a glutening symptom for me. Last month it was so bad... Started with random chest pains for a couple days then chest tightness that last for two weeks. I ended up going to the emergency room ( again) because I started worrying about my heart. Felt like my bra was so tight, bloated belly, trapped gas like pain in chest, swollen lump under sternum and no relief. EKG, chest xray and blood tests showed heart was fine. GI said he didn't think it was GI related. I give up on doctors. I've had this before and I'm sure I will again. It's like inflammation in there or something but it makes you anxious and uncomfortable. I truly hope you are okay and I hope it will give you some comfort to know you aren't the only one with this.
    • While I agree that getting more sleep when ill or stressed is a must, many people can easily get by on 6 hours of sleep a night.  Not everyone needs 8 hours of sleep.  Sleep needs, like the gluten-free diet, is different for everyone.  Nursing school can be very tough so it may be hard to get 8 hours every night.  I think the most important thing is to make sure no gluten is getting into your diet at all so you feel well and can manage your schedule better.  Good luck to you!
