  1. So I wanted to be sure that the Swanson 100% Natural Beef Broth I had in the cupboard (purchased before I went gluten free) was OK. It said it had no MSG, but nothing about Gluten. I was wary of the discussion about "yeast extract" so I called the "1-800 #" provided above. She was great, she took the UPC code and then let me know that this container of Beef Broth was NOT gluten-free. RATS!! Just wanted to share that there were other "Natural Goodness" from Swanson for Beef Stock that was gluten free (per the lady at Campbells). guess I'll be going shopping before I finish my Beef Stroganoff for tonight.
  2. Newbie With A Question

    Except my favorite Fritos - Chili Cheese
  3. Glutened - Help! Can't Deal With It!

    I also got "glutened" at Applebees a few weeks ago. I went online and saw their "gluten free" menu and was excited! I ordered the santa fe chicken and while I suspect the chicken was fine, no one mentioned the rice on the plate. My guess is that had something "seasonings in it" UGH! I feel your pain. So, I have just od'd on water the next few days so will have to look into these suggested items to speed the process along. Luckily, I have been gluten-free for a few months so it was bad, not horrible.
  4. Trying New Things..

    I've started doing that too, when they bring out the gluten-free menu (if they have one) I initially thought of it as limiting, but now I've taken the same approach. Why not try something new! Tried Bourbon Chicken at LeeAnn Chin's yesterday and it was yummy (not quite 5-Star, but good nonetheless)
  5. About a month ago a new Pizza Ranch opened in the NW suburbs of Minneapolis. My family moved to the Twin Cities about 4 years ago from Iowa and were so excited to hear about this, especially when we learned they were offering a gluten free crust. We went, I ate, no stomach issues BUT, ended up with an extreme allergic reaction which involved an Epi-Pen and a drip to the ER (course, I was in a rush and accidently poked my thumb instead of my thigh which I don't recommend). I have looked everywhere for a list of ingredients, but I will say this has happened one other time with a gluten free mix. So I don't know what I'm allergic too in these products. I am highly allergic to nuts, melons, kiwis, bananas and sensitive to raw tomatoes. Thoughts for the next step here? I am getting to know the folks at the ER way too well.
  6. Just Wondering Who's From Minnesota

    I'm in the NW suburbs and work downtown. I've had great luck eating at Chipotle, LeeAnn Chin's, Jimmy Johns (Unwich) and Good to go. I know I need to get better at bringing my lunch, which I do frequently, but it is nice to know there are good places to walk to eat. I have lots of food allergies, so eating out is an eternal mindfield.
  7. I'm totally new at this, started eating Gluten Free last October. But I have dropped 3 sizes. I have peanut allergies and am often fearful of processed foods, having had a reaction to a few gluten free mixes. So I typically just eat meat, veges, fruit and some rice pasta. I also notice that I'm not as hungry as I used to be, so I can eat less and feel full.
  8. Lee Ann Chins

    I had to respond, not only am I planning a visit today to the Downtown LeeAnn Chin's in Minneapolis, I was also diagnosed in October. Thanks for paving the way, can't wait!!
