  1. I always bring my own food. I bring a salad, and I have never been questioned. Then you can eat and drink with the group, be safe, and not sit there just watching everyone eat. It's never worth it to me to take the risk of getting sick.
  2. I do not see any bad ingredients in these, but has anyone else tried them? I buy them all the time for my guys, but haven't tried them myself.
  3. I have been gluten free for more than three years now. Early on I found I had reactions to Amy's and decided to stay away from them. I have a tiny variety of foods that I eat every day, a gluten free kitchen, and as many of you, over a long process of elimination (including never eating at restaurants, or anything that anyone else made), I have not been sick in almost a year, until this week. Over the past two years I probably have been sick only a couple of times. Over the past couple of months I started eating Amy's again, only the gluten free, dairy free Mexican dishes -- and yesterday I was sick. I think I had a few stomach pangs after eating Amy's over the past couple of months' however, I did not get sick, but yesterday knocked me out and today I am feeling iffy. I am wondering if I have been having mild reactions to Amy's, since I have been so good for so long, and the last meal caught me- I made it up and over into the bad reaction threshold. It really does concern me that when I am feeling good for so long that I may be slowly poisoning myself with Amy's foods. I will not purchase any more of those convenient meals. I am going to stick with my instincts when it comes to certain foods. Merry Christmas- Happy Holidays to all!
  4. Has anyone tried the Frozen Quick and Easy Angus Burger patties from Costco? I don't see any gluten ingredients - but...
  5. I definitely react to oats. I have been gluten-free for 2 1/2 years, and I very recently bought some certified gluten-free Oats for the first time since going gluten-free, and I reacted immediately to them. Those oats moved through my system like a freight train Yikes! But I recovered quickly. I recall having the same reaction at times when I used to eat them pre-gluten free.
  6. Hi there, Thought I would update the Hall's Cough Drop discussion. On October 8, 2008 I received this response to my inquiry from Halls: >>>All of the Halls products are gluten-free. If any of our products contain gluten, the source of it will be on the ingredients as wheat, rye, barley, etc. If the allergen is not in the product but manufactured in facility that handles the allergen, then the product will state a warning that it may contain trace of the allergen. If there is neither declaration, then the product is free of the allergen. Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We hope that you will continue to purchase and enjoy our products. Sincerely, Consumer Relations
  7. Just another thought. If you are using Jam or other products that may have been used prior to your going gluten free, you may have some cross contamination issues in your jars/containers. Also, there are some foods I eat that are stated "gluten free" like the ginger snaps from Trader Joe's or Lays potato chips, and I have to say, sometimes they bother me, and sometimes they don't. I just figure that there are some cc issues when these products are made on the same lines as wheat products. Just a guess... so I don't trust them, especially in the beginning. When beginning to go gluten free it is up and down. I think my stomach was so much more sensitive the first 6 months or so to everything I ate. I cut out soy, dairy, potatoes, and caffeine. On one hand it is so great to feel so good for a change, but getting sick seems to wipe out any sense of feeling good. Hang in there, be diligent, and it will get better over time!
  8. I am speechless... I realize it is difficult for others to really grasp the sacrifice we make for our health and all we MUST give up -- which is everything we used to enjoy. My house is a gluten free house, and my family is fine with it. They watched me suffer for years before I gave up gluten and they understand the impact gluten has had on my life. It isn't even a question for them. They are welcome to eat anywhere, anytime they want and consume all the gluten they want outside the home. I do not have that luxury or convenience -- ever. Is that fair? What are the options? Well, we all know the answer to that one! People... sometimes they just don't get it, bless their little hearts. My family knows that I would not have never given up birthday cake if I didn't have too = So they take this very seriously because they know I have The only thing that matters is having the support of your family in your own home and having a safe place to eat. That's the least (or maybe the most) we can have! Ever! Take care
  9. Where do you find rice wraps?
  10. Does anyone have good recipe for gluten free/dairy free fish tacos? I just got the taco thing down, but now I would like to try fish tacos, but I don't know what the sauces are made of. Also, what would be the best way to cook the fish if I were to fry it? I have never made them before, and I miss them :-)
  11. I make my own taco seasoning since every packet I have ever seen has whey in it and I don't do the dairy thing. 1TB minced dried onion 2 tsp Chili Powder 1 tsp Garlic Powder 1 tsp Cornstarch 1 tsp cumin 1/2 to 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper I also add about 1/2 tsp salt, which the recipe didn't call for, but I thought it really needed it. This recipe is equivalent to a package of taco seasoning. I add about 3/4 cups of water when I use it to season meat. I also add it to my rice cooker when I make Spanish rice along with 1 can of diced tomatoes for 2 cups of rice. (If you double it to 4 cups rice then double the seasoning and cans of diced tomatoes.) Also, my son came up with a good idea... we like to buy the crunchy Mission Taco shells, but they break, so we also use the soft corn tortillas. We use a little refried beans or guac (as a glue) on the base of the soft corn tortilla, then we fold the soft tortilla onto the outside of the hard shell, that way the hard shell sticks to the soft one and nothing breaks... it's a little more filling, but it is actually really good ---
  12. Are you drinking coffee? I don't eat much in the morning either. Maybe a banana, apple Lara bar, or soy yogurt.
  13. I use Sweet Baby Rays all the time and haven't had any problems. Is Ken's Thousand Island Dressing gluten free? That was my favorite. I haven't had it since going gluten-free.
  14. Hi there My doctor just gave me some Femcon BC pill samples and I am trying to find out if anyone knows of they are gluten-free? I am desperately trying to stop hemorrhaging due to a fibroid that is giving me a ton of trouble and hoping this one will help... I am stuck in the house... geez get rid of one problem with diet, then this! I have been on Yaz, Seasonique, now I am hoping this one works -
