I love In-N-Out, I know a lot of us do. Now, I'm not all save the animals and such, obviously since I eat them! And I also understand that person's humane treatment can be another person's inhumane treatment. For some (who imo are extremists) animals who are "caged" at all are treated inhumanely. I grew up on a beef farm, we rarely had a sick or injured cow but if we did and it was beyond the scope of our expertise we immediately called a vet. They'd be left to roam 100 acres at a time of pastures and woods and checked on at least twice a day, being sure every last moo was accounted for. I'd say our cows were very humanly treated can cared for.

Knowing how easy it is to treat cows kindly and with the respect that our food should be treated is what makes this so disturbing for me. And yet so heartening because a company did what was right. In-N-Out saw a company treating their cows badly (outright abuse) and cut ties. Just like that, just said we're not buying from you any more. This is the news story I found, beware it shows a few clips of the cows. I wouldn't let a kid watch it and I wouldn't watch it if you're sensitive. It broke my heart to see those poor cows, they should be put down so they don't suffer any more.

Anyway, I wanted to share for those of us who value companies with values. In-N-Out stood up and did the right thing in a difficult situation for a large company. So, on top of providing awesome milkshakes (for those of us not dairy free) and kick butt burgers, they're making every effort to give us humanely cared for and slaughtered beef. I just may have to go out to eat today, it isn't really in my budget but I want to show my support for what they did and the best way to do that is always with money. Besides, awesome milkshakes.

Ugh, that company's still selling their cows to SOMEone.

Kudos to In-n-Out. Interesting to get your beef farm background perspective, too. :)

It was my understanding from the news story that the "farm" is actually shut down pending the results of an investigation. So no one is buying their cows. :D With any luck someone with a brain and some humanity will be put in charge and stop electrocuting them. What I don't understand is in what world mistreating even a single cow is worth it in the end. Each individual cow is worth thousands of dollars, I know these companies are worth millions but as an accountant this really gets to me even if it didn't bother me otherwise. The cows can become sick or otherwise uneatable. Then it isn't just the money of the cow lost, it's the cost of disposing of it, the manpower etc. If I were this companies accountant I'd be having a real problem with this for a whole different list of reasons. It simply is bad business and costs too much.

In N Out is our go to fast food place. They are so careful about allergies, etc. Their fries are gluten free and who can beat those burgers?

NEVER get their spread on your burger. It is full of crumbs from spreading it on buns and dipping the spatula. I always get no spread and ask for a packet on the side. They have individual packets by the register.

    • I recently took a blood test and went over the results with my GI doctor who will be performing and endoscopy and colonoscopy on me soon. I can't remember exactly what she said, but I believe she was talking about my IGA-TTG levels. She said the normal range was under 10 but mine was 639. I think she was talking about IGA-TTG but I'm not sure. For people who have done this test what were your high levels?  Thanks! Female, 16
    • I can not help you with the Candida  issues (except to advise reducing sugar from your diet and talk to your doctor about antifungals).  I can tell you that my folate and B vitamin levels were off the chart.  No, I did not have cancer, which is what you will find if you google).  Yes, I have autoimmune  issues and maybe I have the MRTHR gene (never tested....why bother?).  Instead, I gave up all supplements even those found in processed foods.   My lab reports are all normal after a year.    I am not deficient in anything at this time.   Vitamins and supplements are a good thing, but they are not for everyone.  There is no “one-size-fits all”.   Consider changing your diet to include just whole, unprocessed foods like the ones your Great-Grandparents ate.  Eat a varied diet full of vegetables, fruit, nusts, seeds, meats, fish and grains.  See if things improve.  Work in the Candida diet into this Whole Foods diet, but find out why you think you have a Candida issue.  This should be diagnosed by a medical doctor.  Systemic Candida is rare and is usually found in people with immune-related illnesses.   If you suspect celiac disease, get tested.  It is a simple blood test.  Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/        
    • It could be celiac disease related or not.  The fact is her antibodies are still elevated.  They have come down dramatically (great job!) and she has had some  intestinal healing, but she is not completely healed.  She probably needs more time.  She is under a lot of stress which is known to affect menstrual cycles even excluding celiac disease.   She has been malnourished (think concentration camps...extreme, but you get it)  and still is based on her eating habits you described.    She  is a student who is away from home and has to deal with celiac disease every single moment on her own.    Every bite of food must be checked.  That can be exhausting!  It will get better, but it takes time.  It can take a long time to heal.   The fact that it occurred when she stopped gluten is probably a coincidence.  It probably added even more stress.  Can you imagine a life-long dietary change?  Ever dieted?  How long did the diet last?   Give it more time for her antibodies to come down.  She is still being attacked. They are not in the normal range.    Most take a year or longer to heal.  Ask anyone here.  Read through forum comments.   How about baking her some chocolate chip gluten-free cookies and shipping them to her?  Or mail a fruit basket.  You both will feel a bit better.   Hugs!!!!
    • Done and wish you luck. I moved to a full on keto/paleo diet after also. This might be why it does not come back, once you get rid of it probiotics help keep it in check as they eat the yeast.
    • Ennis_TX   Can you please delete the post that you just created as I had my name attached to it and have edited that out of my original post?  I unfortunately cannot edit your post.  Also, thanks for the candida diet suggestions.  I've looked at the link and have gone that route before.
