I went into M&M meats yesterday and asked if they could help me find something gluten free to throw on the BBQ. Well they were lovely, the lady went into the back and printed up a list of 170 gluten free items carried by the store.

I had a few different types of kabobs and the gourmet stuffed potatoes yesterday afternoon and felt great! I only had a few bites of eat item because I wasn't super hungry but I would now feel confident buying some more food from them.

I picked up:

maple salmon skewers (maple flavour was too strong in my opinion)

marinated BBQ pork kabob (very nice)

marinated buffalo chicken kabob (boring)

gourmet stuffed potatoes (pretty good)

loaded baked potato soup

sirloin burgers

strawberry fruit juice bars (yum!)

They also had these little foil BBQ trays called grill buddies (I'm sure I've seen them elsewhere) that you can take with you so you can grill your food on a possibly contaminated grill or maybe to have someone grill a gluteny item on your clean grill at home.

That's great!!! I had been wondering about their food as well.

And those grill thingies sound wonderful. We are very new to the gluten-free diet and last week I grilling my son's hot dog on a piece of aluminum foil, but it didn't work that great and it took quite a bit longer than our hot dogs which were cooked right on the grill.

Thanks for the information!

I also picked up some Rotisserie flavoured chicken wings. They are gluten free, and are fantastic!

I read on another website somewhere that their honey garlic wings are gluten free, but when I went to go pick some up, the package said "may contain wheat", so I didn't buy it, and I'm sensitive to things cross contaminated, so I didn't want to take a chance!

I'm also glad to see the burgers are safe. Over the summer I brought President's Choice sirloin burgers, it didn't say on the package anything about fillers, but apparently beef extract isn't gluten free. I was sick for 3 days after that. Never buying PC burgers again.

I buy pre-made and frozen burgers from CostCo and FreshCo. They have only one ingredient: beef. I haven't tried the M&M burgers lately, but we have bought a few things there from their gluten free list.

    • Hi again, I was also wondering whether having the bowel preparation will have lowered the TTG level at all? Thank you for everything.  
    • Welcome to the forum Lakme! You can find a lot of good info on celiac testing at this link. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faqs/ You do need to eat gluten for 12 weeks before the blood antibodies test.  A single slice of bread is enough gluten.  Since you have been avoiding gluten the antibodies in your bloodstream may have dropped to a point they can't be measures now.  But it's impossible to know for sure.  The celiac testing process is a celiac disease antibodies panel followed by an endoscopy to check for damage to the gut lining.  I suggest you at least get the blood antibodies tested.  If you can afford the endoscopy that is good to do also. Another important test is for vitamin and mineral levels.  Celiac disease can cause malabsorption and deficiencies in various vitamins etc. I am not clear on your skin issues?  There is a skin rash associated with celiac disease that can also be tested.  It is called dermatitis herpetiformmis or DH.  A diagnosis of DH is a diagnosis of celiac disease.  DH can be very itchy. There is also a celiac condition called gluten ataxia where eating gluten causes affects on the brain or nerves.  People with gluten ataxia may have trouble walking and coordinating muscles.  Since it affects the brain that can cause various symptoms.  I'd be guessing if I tried to describe all the possibilities there. It can be much harder/more unpleasant to get tested for celiac disease after being off gluten for a few months.  once you start feeling better and your body starts healing, the switch back to eating gluten can really knock a person down.  So it's better to be tested before stopping eating gluten.
    • Been wondering about these also, I been personally just using frozen ones from Trader Joe's. But I also have a thing with the salt, thinking a good rinse and soak in some water for 15mins should help pull it out. Would be great in omlettes, sautes, and in my pasta dishes.
    • That is the brand I use, screw all the other stuff he says. The fact is the pure pumpkin powder protein is really high in zinc, magnesium, and several key amino acids, fats, and various other nutrients. But it on amazon btw. the double or the 5lb are the best deals. It is one of the few proteins that help me to put on weight. Also a few tsp before bed makes you sleep quite deep when taken with a bit of almond milk.      You might also look into Hemp Protein, NOTE Jarrow is the only one that still makes gluten-free hemp protein. Everyone else says they might have blow over contamination from wheat. Oh if you need bars and also have issues with whey like I do Julian Makes some paleo bars. Flavor/texture can take some getting used to. Oh and if your alright with rice protein Nutrabiotic makes a full spectrum version enhanced with sprulina. If you need links to places on where to find these at the best price message me I will see if I can track down some deals.
    • Thanks Kenlove. I know you have been in Japan so you'll understand when I say the artichoke hearts were on sale for 377 yen for the two jar set. Too good to pass up! As long as I can eat them!
