I don't know what that is, but can you go there (if it's a restaurant) and get everything but the outside?

Why couldn't you make your own burritos? Or get a burrito bowl from chipotle and use a gluten free wrap.

It's not the same, but I usually make burrittos using corn tortillas. Since the only brown rice torillas I ever found (Food For Life) made me sick. I have heard that Trader Joes has gluten-free brown rice tortillas as well but I have never found them there. To make the burritos out of corn: Get all your ingredints ready. Cut up what needs to be cut up and heat up what needs to be warm--beans, meat, etc. Put enough oil to coat the bottom of a small frying pan. Let the oil heat up for a couple minutes on medium low. Put the corn tortilla in the oil and heat just a few seconds until warm, then flip it over. Pull it out and blot any extra oil with a paper towel. Then fill with filling and eat before the tortilla cools too much. When it cools it is more likely to break up. You can also heat tortillas in the microwave or the oven but they will tear more easily unless you fill them with meat/beans/cheese while still warm and put in the oven until cripsy. Top with salsa, sour cream, lettuce, etc after they cook.

Amy's makes a great gluten-free burrito. One with cheese and one without.

The GlutenFrieda burritos are the most like "real" burritos I have tasted. Very good!

I usually do burrito bowls. I pile them up with cheese, sour cream, and guacaomole...I don't even miss the tortillas!

For some reason I want the tortilla ... if that makes sense? I think it's a textural thing. Being pregnant is WEIRD! LOL I'll pick up an Amy's one later today and hopefully that'll help with the craving.

K8 - that baby sure wNts some crazy foods! He is going to come out wanting a pizza and Gatorade with a burrito for dessert! :)

I tried some tortills at a food show but haven't found them yet. I think the name was French Meadows or something similar. They are frozen.

When that baby starts wanting margritas, get some limade.

... I have heard that Trader Joes has gluten-free brown rice tortillas as well but I have never found them there. ...

You might have to ask at the store where they keep them. In one of my local stores they are kept on the bottom shelf of rack near the wine and meat cooler. not refrigerated though. Why, I don't know. Everywhere else I've been the tortillas are frozen or in a cooler. But these are just on a shelf in the middle of an isle with lots of other non-gluten-free things on it.

Thanks, I will ask next time I go. My Trader Joes is tiny and always packed with people so I never bothered finding someone to ask.

There are a few different gluten free tortillas you can use - the ivory teff ones (I forget who makes them) came closest to a flour tortilla for a burrito for me. Good luck!!

I've been eating the Amys Tamales with no reaction, but then again being pregnant does mask some of my symptoms. I'll stick to only eating her to fulfill a craving :)

    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.  
    • Exactly what are your allergy symptoms?  Were they IgG or IgE?  Allergy testing as a whole is not super accurate -- especially the IgG.  Were you on any H1 or H2 antihistamines for the last five days  when you were tested?   As far as celiac testing, four days without consuming gluten probably would not impact testing.  
    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way.
