I was glutened!

Glutened is a term I've heard people mention when they are eating gluten free and they have accidentally eaten gluten.  I am now going to use it because 3 times it has happened to me since going gluten free first week of March.

It is a horrible stomach pain, undescribable and not like anything I've felt before, and it lasts 24 hours at the worst and then takes days to feel all the way better.  It also leads to trips to the bathroom and I have vomitted, along with major bloating and gas.  It is the worse feeling and I do not wish it on anyone.

I think the worst thing is that sometimes it is hard to determine what it is that caused it.  I believe the first time it was eating taco seasoning and taco shells, Old El Paso brand, which I read after the fact on their website that it is not in the "gluten free" list of their food items, ouch!  Then the second time I feel it was a Wal-Mart rotisserie chicken--which I have had a few times I believe, but this time I feel was the problem.  The third time was more minor and happened this past weekend.  I ate a gluten free meal from Cedarline-which I purchased at Publix, and it happened starting about an hour after eating that and continued all weekend.

Have any of you been "glutened" and if so what do you think was the cause of it?

I have found some products from Udi's that are so so so good that I have to share them.  I went free first of March as a lifestyle change, as I have really seen that it is not beneficial for my body, at least from the knowledge that I have so far and how I feel when I introduce it back to my body, it's not for me anymore.  Since going gluten free a few things I missed out on were Pizza and bread-bread mostly to make a sandwich with.  Well no longer do I miss those things!

I first found Udi's pizza crust in the frozen food department at a local heatlh food store.  I made myself a hawaiin pizza with it, adding bbq sauce, cheese, pineapple and ham.  It was so good and it did not taste like most gluten free bread type things (i.e. cardboard), it tasted very good and also had a good crisp to it!  Then I went looking for that at our Publix grocery store I found a 3-cheese Udi's certified organic pizza in the frozen food, but no pizza crust.  So I got it.  I LIKE.  So glad I found it!  

Then this past week I was walking in Publix by the frozen food and happened to see Udi's white sandwich bread!  I said ok, I will try it.  I also had gotten some Lloyd's BBQ chicken.  That week I ate a lot of open-faced bbq chicken sandwiches on that Udi's bread.  YUM!  That was actually better than the pizza crust or pizza.  

Anyways, maybe that will help someone looking for some Udi's products.  You can search on their site where they sell products in your area.  

More later...Love to you!
