"No, No Wheat In There, Just Bread."

So, this is my first holiday season since being gluten-free. I just went to a neighborhood brunch, which we do every year. It's one of these very casual things so I wasn't concerned about eating or not. It's only three blocks from my house and I wasn't planning to stay long because I need to cook my turkey, etc. So I had some fruit, and was eying the egg/casserole things. I asked the host about her egg dish -- I said "is there any wheat in this?" She replied "no, no wheat, just eggs, cheese, and bread." um... :blink::lol::rolleyes:

Some people seem believe that if the bread isn't called "wheat bread," then it doesn't actually have bread. Like white and oatmeal breads. Kind of baffling.

I had a convo while in GA during my last visit with my Dad's sister (who is supposedly a nurse?) that went like this:

Me: I can't have ANY wheat

Her: So you can have white bread?

Me: No, white bread is just bleached wheat

Her: So you can have boxed mac and cheese?

Me: No, noodles are made from wheat

Her: But you can still have Betty Crocker boxed mixes right?!?

Me: *head palm* No

Needless to say I didn't let her cook for me ever....

sounds alot like my thanksgiving with grandma. She saved some halloween candy for the kids and she wanted to give some to my 13 month old who is gluten intolerant. "Can she have a kit kat bar?"

Me "no, those have wheat in them"

Her "no, it has cookie in it not bread.."

Me "the cookie has wheat flour in it"

Her, "oh, can she have a twix bar, those are different"

Me, "no those have cookie too"

Her, "oh, well she can just lick the chocolate off then"

Me, "no that would still cause problems"

Her, "why?"

I was just diagnosed on November 2nd. At the big family Thanksgiving dinner I was told I was being "too picky". Pretty sure I got some gluten at dinner. It was either from the shortening they used in the green beans (I had no idea some people put shortening in green beans) or the crumbs left by an uncle who used the same utensil for all of the food. :( He was unfortunately getting his food before I had a chance to set out serving spoons. Lesson learned next time I'll bring my own food and wait to set it out until after that uncle gets his plate.

Reminds me of a story I overhead once on the subway. It went something like this:

So I'm trying to eat healthier these days. You know, whole wheat bread, and whole wheat rice. And there's this woman at work that is allergic to wheat. So she can't have any whole wheat bread. Only white bread.

Or the cafe I went to in England.

- Do you have anything gluten-free?

- Yes, we have soda bread!

ummmm, right, and thats made with soda flour?

A Song of Thanksgiving It's Over

Oh beautiful for spacious pies

and amber fields of... bread

for purple mountain majesties

Above the loaves, she said

America, America,

We shed ingredients on thee

And crown thy food with sorghumdough

From casserole to casserole !

Oh beautiful for what to eat

Whose frantic impassioned stress

A thoroughfare for gluten free

Across the wilderness

America, America

God mend thy ev'ry flaw

Confirm thy soul in self control

And pass the cabbage slaw

O beautiful for party dream

That sees beyond this year's

Thine alabaster frostings gleam

Undimmed by human tears.

America! America!

We shed ingredients on thee,

And crown thy good with safe substitutes

From sea to shining sea.

My first gluten-free Thanksgiving too and I was ready -- with my own serving spoon, and digging into the part of the plates that had not been touched. Then I stepped away from the table and when I came back, a relative next to me was so nice to serve my plate with all of the dishes passing by. Ug! Lesson learned - guard your plate!

Really - people are so well meaning. I've been there where I didn't get it.

But, so glad that event is over! Food-wise.

Excellent! Thank you!

I live in a state with wheat stalks on my liscense plate! We all had a good laugh about that last night. :)

    • Thank you for your replies, everyone! It was very helpful. I don't think I am comfortable with passing the whole gluten introduction diet again and getting that rash. Or, even getting the rash on my face flared up again. It actually might be a good thing I got 'glutened' at that bd party so I could finally make connection with all the symptoms. As I thought back about my 'allergy' rashes I start wondering if it could be related to gluten all those years but no one even suspected. For example, at some point I started getting itchy rash around my knees, spreading down to ankles (front of the legs) in summer. The dermatologist and GP said it is 'sun allergy'. The usual allergic treatments helped for the itch and the patchy scales slowly healed but it flared up on the same place during the summer multiple times. The strange thing is that it never flared up when I went hiking, or walking in the sun in the city (I have extremely low vit D levels and I need to supplement, so it was no-no to stay completely covered no matter the rash...I needed my natural vit D). The rash only appeared after beach visits. At some point I started washing and drying my skin with a towel every time I went out from the sea, the rash still appeared but I was able to control it so it showed up on day 4-5 when vacation was almost over. Then, last summer after I was completely gluten and dairy free for approximately 9-10 months, and I was annoyed of washing my skin each and every time and getting those weird looks on the beach, I stopped doing it. I was prepared with medicine and creams for that rash but guess what - my 'sun allergy' was mysteriously gone. Not a single blister, not a patch of itchy skin, nothing. Another 'allergy' case of mine is that I found from my own bad experience I got very bad rash from red dyes (in food or cosmetics). If it is food it shows on my face, if it is cosmetics (soaps, perfumes)...whenever I applied it. I am now reading that people with dh should stay away from red dyes. Mere coincidence? I don't know, I am more and more suspicious I could have this DH thing going on for years, if that is DH. I am just annoyed that all the dermatologists I went to during all those years never made connection. No one even suspected. It was the usual path - cortisone creams, pills, etc. At some point cortisone creams were no longer working so they started prescribing some mixtures made in the pharmacy specifically for me with sulfur. That worked like a charm but I couldn't walk around all covered in white cream looking like a mummy (long sleeves in summer here where I live and summer = 35-38 C, is not fun). Then, I tried homeopathy....it worked like a charm but of course those rashes kept appearing and disappearing, I was only able to control the itchy skin so I don't scratch, scratch, scratch...looong, long journey! Sorry about my rant...and, one more time thank you everyone who found the time to reply and share your opinion! Much appreciated!
    • Found this old thread when researching for my daughter who might be having an endoscopy in September. I'm curious to know what the results were?
    • Actually "flour" is not a common ingredient in soy sauce.   Accusing a manufacturer of "lying" about ingredients is a serious charge.  If you actually have proof that this company is not listing ingredients, you should report it to the FDA.
    • Ok guys, I messed up. I ate a bag of marshmallows the same day... low and behold, with wheat starch. I did not expect that. Sneaky sneaky marshmallows with with wheat starch. fml
    • The L-Glutamine may have gluten in it.  Try drinking bone broth daily instead.
