I figure the eggs are ok because at the store they're not enclosed, rather in an open cooler. I also have raw eggs in there as well. Do you think those are ok? They felt cold but not as cold as if I was home. Same with the hard boiled eggs.
I know this is silly question but I have used Dermorganic Hair Spray for so many years. I am having trouble finding it to purchase at a reasonable price. Is there anyone that can recommend a good aerosol hairspray that is gluten free? Thank you.
It makes me feel better knowing I am not alone in this. Gluten sensitivity/celiac seems to effect women more than men too. Your experiance sounds a lot like mine. Besides trying to figure out what foods were causing my problems, I am getting older, and have developed mild arthritis. I was also diagnosed with adult A.D.D. many years ago. As you know, both are symptoms of celiac! I also began a new high stress career at the same time my symptoms began. So confusing. I guess that's why its called 'The great imitator'. One bright light is the fact a lot more gluten free foods are coming out now, and some of them are actually quite good! Thanks again and please keep in touch, possibly through Facebook. BTW I see you are in the UK. My heart goes out to those poor young gals in Manchester and their parents. I have a young daughter as well.
My mini fridges usually freeze my eggs! Ugh!
You can buy hard boiled eggs in packages at some groceries.
lunch meat, canned soups - Progresso has some labelled gluten-free,
microwave rice - either frozen or in the regular rice isle - add frozen veggies and chicken lunchmeat or canned beans and salsa
A few frozen dinners are gluten-free - amys , gluten free brands like Udis, EVOL, Lean cuisine, etc
Bush's baked beans
Read the ingredients and labels - they all aren't gluten-free.
Those cooked eggs are just fine! If you want to insure that the frig is colder, add a bucket of ice. Is used to travel without the benefit of a frig. I just used a couple of ice buckets to chill milk, or whatever. It worked. If you want a hot meal, try Udi's frozen meals. Not the best, but good for hotel cooking. Several lunch meats are gluten free too at the market.
