  1. Shady Brook Turkeys say gluten free on the front of the packaging. I tried this brand for the first time and it was quite good.
  2. My husband and I both love sweet potatoes and sometimes I make him fries with them. I recently found a frozen version of these by McCain and Ore Ida but am not sure they are safe for my husband to eat. Does anyone know if these are gluten-free or not? I went to the Ore Ida site but couldn't find any info. Thanks.
  3. I recently had a hot dog for the first time in many years. I used to have migraines quite often and found lunch meats and hot dogs were one of the triggers because of the nitrates so I stayed away from them. I decided to "test" myself at friend's house and ate one of the hot dogs. No problems. She told me they are the Deutschmacher brand which is sold in the deli department of markets mostly. I used to eat this brand about 20 years ago and loved them. Now, I would like to find out if these hotdogs are gluten free so I can buy them for home and my husband can also enjoy them. I can't find any info online except they were suppose to be bought by Tyson. According to the threads I have read here, all except Nathan's are safe. I just want to confirm this brand. Thanks for the help with this.
  4. I have a Big Lots not far from me. Thanks. I'll check them out.
  5. My husband bought a couple of bags to try and is raving how they taste almost like regular pasta. He really didn't like the rice ones that much.
  6. I found a new to me gluten free pasta made by Sam Mills. It's made from 100% corn. My husband has tried it and really liked the taste and has had no problems so far. The texture is much better than the rice pasta. Has anyone tried it or had any problems from it? The package says it's free of Dairy, GMO, Cholesterol, Egg, and gluten. There are several shapes to choose from.
  7. I've cooked the Honeysuckle White turkey for a few meals now and my husband has had no problems with it. To me, it tastes as good as the Butterball. Thanks for the list, especially the pumpkin filling. I'm thinking of making a pumpkin mousse and wasn't sure how to go about it. Now I can use the filling and cool whip in the recipe. There is no crust to worry about and it's delicious. I was also thinking of making a pie for the holiday with apples, raisins, and cranberries. Which crust mix do you recommend? I made this fruit mixture before and served it warm. It's a simple easy dessert to make. Just slice the apples into bite size pieces, put them in a good size pan with some sugar, cinammon,and water, let them get to a boil, throw in the fresh cranberries, turn the stove down to simmer, throw in the raisins and a bit of corn starch to thicken. Simmer until the cranberries are popped open, remove from heat and allow to cool a bit before serving. It will thicken more while cooling. I did put a bit of Cool Whip on mine. Yummy.
  8. I found Dietz & Watson at my local Shaw's deli counter. This store took the slicer apart and sterilized it in front of me when I asked for a clean dedicated slicer. I was told any deli will do this if you ask. The staff said even if they are busy, if I request this service due to medical reasons, they have no problem with it. The only meat listed on the site as not gluten-free was a couple of flavored Chicken Breasts. The Bacon Lover's Turkey, Virginia Ham, Roast Beef, and Pastrami are great. I put some of the turkey and ham along with Cracker Barrel cheese pieces in a salad for my husband. Makes a good meal. I tasted a slice of the Sante Fe Turkey and while it's good, it's a bit too spicy for me. Here's their site if you want to check them out. www.dietz&watson.net
  9. I keep checking the food lists just in case they add new brands. I think all of them have been listed, but I am still not feeding my dogs and cats canned until I know it's safe. I have a 16 year old Peke who is having trouble chewing the dry right now. I am using the puppy's (5 Months old) dry for her right now and giving her people food to suppliment. I was thinking about going gluten free for them. I am presently using IAMS. What brands do you suggest? My husband usually feeds them and has not had any problems yet. I told him I would feed them from now on. I never associated animal food with gluten until reading about it here. I was shocked to hear about the rat poison. Just glad they have a cause and can straighten it out. My heart goes out to anyone who has a pet sickened from this terrible thing.
  10. Thanks for this letter. My husband has tested negative for celiac. but has symptoms if he eats gluten items. He also has lactose intolerance. I try very hard to make foods he can eat. I have diabetes and when I was diagnosed 7 years ago, he didn't know how to handle it. He just told me it was my thing and he had no idea what to do for me. Over time, he has learned alot about the disease and understands it better. When he first started having problems, I was right there to learn about celiac and help him any way I could. A side effect of our 2 different problems is that he is more aware of each other's dietary needs now. This letter could apply to many different diseases including fibro, celiac, diabetes, and several other life altering diseases. Thanks again for sharing. I plan to copy it so my friend with MS can have a copy to show her husband.
  11. I just found this site and want to say a big thanks to everyone for this food list. My husband is gluten and lactose free. We didn't know some of these foods were o.k. for him to have. He tested negative, which we were told is possible. He follows the diet anyway because he feels sick (stomach pains, etc.) if he eats the wrong foods. I'm diabetic and salt restricted. This makes for interesting meals at my house. lol I saw Prego sauce listed in a post with a suggestion for pizza. Is Prego gluten-free? We usually get Amy's or Enrico's for him. I actually like the taste of both of them better than my regular jar sauce. Thanks again for the info.
