  1. I've totally done that!

    Low blood pressure

    To the OP--since you stand a lot for your job, I'm sure you are aware of moving around and not "locking" your knees... I've seen quite a few people pass out from standing too long with their knees locked.

    I agree with the others... salt your food and make sure you drink enough water (and I'm sure you know that coffee dehydrates you... a little bit can help but too much makes it worse!) I have this same problem and have even passed out a few times, but as long as I'm hydrated and salt my food I'm fine.

    The crazy things people say

    This thread makes me laugh and feel sad simultaneously!

    The crazy things people say

    That's hilarious! I picture them announcing over the loudspeaker "this person actually has real food with them!" and a big, Far-Side style red arrow suddenly pointing at your head as everyone turns to look at you! Hooray for planning ahead!

    "People who aren't celiac but don't eat gluten are doing themselves a disservice" -- coworker of mine
  8. This is an awesome thread! -- they know what carageen, soy lecithin, kohlrabi, and chard are -- they don't complain about feeling bloated or lethargic -- they are really disappointed when spaghetti squash is out of season and thrilled when strawberries come into season -- they find themself standing in front of the refrigerator saying "man I wish I had a cauliflower!" -- an egg is warming on their counter because they are going to make mayo

    unsweetened iced tea?

    I've lost many of my favorite teas because of soy lecithin (so long Country Peach Passion!). It's a bummer!

    Couple of items: pickles, V8

    We buy Bubbie's at Sunflower Market. They are really good. Tom, do you have an easy pickle recipe? We have cucumbers in the garden...

    Where To Go? (and what to eat)

    A Trader Joe's coming to the next town over from us--hooray! Our family of five needs a place to go after late volleyball games, climbing comps, school plays... sometimes we can cover it with the Crockpot and sometimes it just makes for an awfully late night for the kids. I'm still grieving over the loss of Chipotle I really thought they were a good option. Sorry for the whining... Subway is a possibility (lol, I can't believe I'm saying that either!) or now I'm wondering about the salad bar at the regular grocery store.
  13. I've posted a few times about how bummed I am about Chipotle... it was just such a quick staple for emergency times! I thought perhaps a thread about where to go and what to eat when fast food is necessary would be helpful... Currently the only thing I'm confident in (and it's a shaky confidence) is going to Tokyo Joes and getting a bowl with lettuce instead of noodles or rice, veggies, and meat. Then I get one of the curry sauces--the ingredients seem okay. Where do you eat out if you have to?

    I do Chipotle all the time... and I'm really disappointed to hear about the soybean oil! Arg!
