What about hot dogs?
I’ve tried Beyond Organic, Applegate, and Boarshead – all claim to be gluten free.

I also wanted to add this question: Is rice milk off limits as well?
My ALCAT showed reactions to almonds and coconut so I’m about of options (I don’t do soy) for a milk type product.

Rice milk would not be a good option for a true gluten free diet. If you are able to have cashews, I love cashew milk. It is very easy to make also. Just google it. I think it has the best flavor too. (more creamy)

Best wishes,

Lori

oops forgot about the hotdogs, I occasionally eat the applegate farms beef hot dogs. I do not like the turkey dogs.  I just can’t get past the thought of eating hot dogs not being good for you, so I save them for special occasions, like camping and picnics. I don’t know maybe they are fine, but old habits are hard to break.

Thank you Lori!! :-)

 

YEAH!  I was concerned the rice milk would fall in the grain category.
I have a sensitivity to cashews as well. It never ends…..
Yes, I do the applegate hot dogs and bacon.

Anyone tried the Dandy Blend herbal coffee? It says gluten free but it’s roasted barley and rye which seems counter intuitive.

Now for another food question:
Does anyone think the McDonald’s latte’s have gluten? I get them non-fat with sugar-free vanilla. Thanks!

 

What about 90% dark chocolate?  Does it automatically have gluten?

McDonald’s lattes?  I wouldn’t trust anything that comes from McDonalds.  You can check out the ingredients in their foods at nutrition.mcdonalds.com.  I looked up the sugar free vanilla latte and the ingredients are whole milk, espresso and sugar free vanilla syrup.  The question is in what the syrup contains.  A lot of those have fillers/thickeners like modified corn starch, dextrose, etc. 

 

Chocolate doesn’t automatically have gluten.  It depends on where the chocolate comes from and again if it has corn starches/dextrose or high fructose corn syrup, etc in it.  There are several sources of true grain free chocolate online.

Are your sensitivities perhaps delayed allergies that can be eliminated under the right conditions?  I have 13 delayed allergies, including sugar cane, and I’m doing 6 months without the allergenic foods/environmental allergies, while sticking to a grain free diet.  The idea is to heal so that my allergies will go away since the lymphocytes that react have a six month life span.

 

All the best to you!

Thank you so much thychamp. I love your posts, btw. Thanks for clariying about the filler ingredients. I just watched Dr. O’s video from the pantry, one of my favorite ones so far, and learn much about the code words for CORN SUGAR. WOW!

Grain Free Chocolate? Now that’s a label I’ve never seen. I will do some googling on that one. Thanks!

What are lymphocytes? And yes, I have to stay off certain foods for six months. BINGO! But, my SEVERE intolerances included wheat and moderate inolerance to gluten/gladin so that I want out for the long haul. You are the first person who explained the six month rule! Thank you!

Stephanie, perhaps try to NOT eat prepared foods. NEVER eat at fast [junk] food restaurants, ever. You hungry? drive past chic-fil-a, mcdonalds, etc, and go to the market. Buy some berries, some grapes, and some raw almonds. Some filtered [chlorine, chloramines free, non-fluoridated] water. Makes a great snack, and won’t mess with blood sugar levels.

Once you get out of the habit of always reaching for prepared, prepackaged foods, you will be happier with your choices.
