  1. What irritates me about this scenario is that people who say they have celiac disease and then eat gluten make the people who REALLY have celiac disease and have to be a MILLION percent complaint seem like worry warts and obsessive. I don't care if that's what I look like, but it's hard not to call...
  2. My rule is that if I don't make it, I won't eat it. I take all of my own food to work and won't even use cooking stuff there. I have two friends I trust to cook for me... real foodies who totally get gluten-free.
  3. I've been happily buying Jimmy John's "Unwiches" for several months now. The folks were incredibly nice when I asked the sandwich makers to change gloves. Now I always say, "I'm the one who always asks that the servers change their gloves," and they ask, "Oh, you're allergic to wheat?" "Sure," I...
  4. I've eaten McD's French fries more times than I care to admit and have never had a single problem... and I am SUPER sensitive. I believe them when they say their French fries are fried in a dedicated fryer. One mistake and I'll be ALL OVER THEM!!
  5. I still miss certain foods terribly. I've been gluten-free for more than 13 years but don't look forward to Thanksgiving anymore cause I can't have the stuffing that was the best part of the meal. I've tried about 13 different stuffing/dressing and it simply cannot be duplicated. Same with chocolate...
  6. Oh, how I MISS Olga's gyros!! I can't wait to try this!!
  7. That's my worst nightmare and why we almost NEVER eat out. I'd have been tempted to stay there and let them SEE what happens when they don't take your gluten free needs seriously... but, for me, it's so severe and explosive (from both ends... sorry for the TMI) that they'd have to scrape me off the...
  8. I've read several articles over the last year linking GMOs and Monsanto crap and the incredible rise of celiac disease in people. It's made me more aware and willing to eat cleaner and healthier... no matter what the cost in my rural area of the U.S.
  9. I have another observation. Hubs and I ate at Outback Steak House the other night. We NEVER eat out so it was a real treat. The staff was knowledgeable and I felt safe. What bugged me was the delicious looking loaf of bread they brought out for Hubs. I am not above picking it up and taking a huge...
  10. My at-home frustration is the ridiculous cost of good gluten-free flour blends. I love Better Batter flour blend but it is absurdly expensive. As far as eating out goes... we don't go. I'll eat at PF Changs and Outback Steak House on very rare occasions ... with trepidation as wait staff and managers...
  11. There aren't any Sprouts... or any other stores where I live. We have WalMart... I get Namaste pizza crust mix from the health food store. It's great!
  12. Not to mention... Udi's pizza crusts are terrible!! I've been to pizza places where I trust their practices and they often used Against the Grain crusts (which are only for businesses... not individuals... to purchase). Those are awesome! Udi's... not so much.
  13. Papa Murphy's is the pizza place where you go in and choose the pizza toppings you like. Then you take the pizza home and bake it in your own oven. They've just come out w/ a Udi's gluten-free crust and are advertising they can give you a gluten-free pizza. Of course, there are tons of us commenting...
  14. I've read these articles and the scientific study posted in the Publications forum. It's SCARY. After reading them, I vowed to go GMO free, organic, to raise chickens for meat and eggs, to grow most, if not all, of our veggies. A few days later, when I'd calmed down a little (haha)... and found organic...
  15. I live in west bum-#($* Arkansas and Walmart is about all we have. They have a disclaimer on their rotisserie chicken thingy so I never buy it. I do buy it sometimes from our smaller Harps grocery. Funny... I never make it home w/ 2 drumsticks on it... one flies off and into my hand on the way home...
