Hi, I accidentally bought chicken in a tomato sauce, which as I later discovered, contains wheat flour. Would washing away the sauce with hot water help, or is the chicken already contaminated with gluten and there's nothing to do?

A high quality, extra-virgin unrefined coconut oil will not have mold. Since the coconuts are cold-pressed while they are fresh, not dried, and without any heat sources, the coconut oil is able to maintain its natural antibiotic, antimicrobal,... (more)

I have been feeling off for about two weeks. Sinuses, headaches, anxiety problems... I couldn't figure out why. I have celiac disease so I have to worry about gluten far more than most paleo people. I traced what changed in my diet and figured I... (more)

Hm, can you think of something else you started eating when symptoms began? For example sauces often contain wheat. This evil is pervasive. If it is definitely meat that is causing problems I can think of the following alternative sources to get... (more)

It could be that they put that warning label in the bulk package because the plant the flour was milled in also mills other things. For example, Bob's Redmill's gluten free products are milled in a completely gluten free facility, and the rest of... (more)

Here at home my mother loves making pork and beans. I don't eat the beans but i'll devour the pork. The pork however still has the bean sauce on it, should I avoid this and wash it of or will it do no harm to me? (I handle carbs and gluten very well) (more)

Option a) is to hide your "hate" towards beans for the rest of his life when eating at Mum's option b) is to talk to her about this and maybe not having to lie/hide about your food choices. Both can work, the choice is, however, yours. (more)
