  1. The Chipotle's in northern CA (Sacramento area) are testing out a (shudder...) tofu burrito so they can appeal to the vegan market. I think it is called a "sofrito." Just an FYI for those gluten free people also trying to avoid soy proteins - watch out for the tofu.
  2. "Cosmetics don't enter the bloodstream.... ?" Not unless they are ingested, duh ! but the residue is always on your hands and anywhere else it's applied. My one dog got in several licks on my cheek tonight (a sneaky kiss, I don't encourage this) when I was in the car and she put her paws up between...
  3. Shorter version: These Big Ag chemical companies and Monsanto are insisting that the American public be forced to eat anonymous, unlabeled "foods" which have had other animals, plants, bacteria and fungi inserted into them, because they intend to control the seed supplies which all farmers use...
  4. DE works on the exterior of furry/feathery animals as way to kill external insect pests, like fleas, because it cuts into their exo skeletons and they dehydrate. Animals lick themselves when self- grooming, so it obviously doesn't harm them internally, but I don't think this is going to help otherwise...
  5. Starbucks serves Tazo tea in their tea bags selections. Some of the Tazo Tea flavors did have gluten per the Tazo FAQ on the Tazo website. The Tazo website has been massively overhauled since the last time I checked it. I am seeing many herbal tea blends listed with the generic "natural flavorings...
  6. Some hotels will mysteriously make a room fridge appear if you have a medical necessity. Otherwise, keep them frozen until you leave, then you can slow down the thaw with packing a little ice chest with you, then refilling it there with hotel ice - be sure to bring extra plastic bags to keep...
  7. Another thing to consider - Are you using one of the disposable razors with the "moisturizing strip" on it, by any chance ? I absolutely loathe those things, if I use one and don't rewash and rinse the area really well, I come up with a huge, red welt on my underarms with some brands. I used one...
  8. I use baking soda for deodorant, after I had a really severe topical reaction to yet another deodorant a few years back. I have no idea what the ingredient was that set me off, but I don't want a repeat reaction. Now, much to my shock, the baking soda works MUCH BETTER than any deodorant I was...
  9. I responded within a few days of a gradual lessening of the dizziness, but I had complications with my c spine being messed up. Took longer for the vision problems to partially resolve, as my eyes will still cross when I get glutened. But I slowly regained my night vision, so I can see to drive...
  10. Gelato! Husband is making chile for dinner, because we finally ran out of the Indian curries we made last thurs/friday. Our 14 year old microwave is not wanting to start anymore, so we are having to boil water on the stove for coffee.... I managed to set off the smoke alarm doing this. ...
  11. This is why we moved to another state finally, so we could just visit cold, and then come home an hour and a half later to where it may frost but seldom snows. It wasn't just the cold, it was the cold, the freezing rain ice storms in November-December that coated everything with a half inch...
  12. Speechless. Please do not eat anything that causes you to break out in hives or causes facial swelling. Please continue to keep a food diary, unless you have a death wish. Please check this dietician's professional credentials via whatever the rules are where you located, and consider filing...
  13. A GIANT GLUTEN DEFLECTO SHIELD ? I WANT ONE OF THOSE. I HAVE NO FREAKING IDEA WHAT I AM HAVING FOR DINNER. WE NEED TO GO TO THE GROCERY AND IT'S FRIDAY NIGHT AND 7 O'CLOCK ALREADY. BUT WE HAD TACO SALADS FOR LUNCH WITH A SIDE OF BLACK BEANS.
  14. As time passes, celiacs on a gluten free diet tend to react more strongly to cross contamination or glutenings.
