    I went out for dinner with my family-in-law yesterday. (only dessert was an indulgence)... My BF's cousin has Rheumatoid arthritis and all sorts of allergies. I told her about my health adventures with Paleo and she was really open to changing her diet. She had even asked her doctor to change to a gluten free diet (it's a start) and that she wanted to do a sugar free diet as well.
    her doctor actually forbid her to do that!!
    I asked her why.
    Her doctor had said: "there is no use in changing your diet while your body is still adjusting to the medication. We need to let the meds do their job first before looking elsewhere."

    *facepalm*!!!!!!
    I have RA and take Methotrexate and Humira.
    I started Paleo in Jan and in the spring began lowering my medications. I now take half the Methotrexate and have gone from every 2 weeks to every 3 weeks on the Humira.
    My Rheumatologist (who is older than dirt and quite old school) said "what ever you're doing keep doing, I consider you in remission". So meds gave me my life back and nutrition put me in remission!
    Please have you BF encourage his cousin to find a Rheumy who is more open!! Feel free to share my story.
    *Cranky*. Man it ticks me off when Rheumys won't look at nutrition

Ugh.
      Last time I was at the supermarket I noticed that the tins of tuna have a warning that they 'may contain fish'. I should bloody well hope so!!

      • I think my favorite is the carton of eggs that says "May contain eggs." well, what the hell else would be in it?
        Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

        • Picked up a packet of gummy candies for a possible indulgence; immediately put it down because the first ingredient is "glucose syrup (wheat)" along with 50 other ingredients.

            LOW FAT DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MUFFIN
            I just stood there smiling

            And at school almost all the girls I walked past by at lunch held a plain salad in there hand while I was heading home to have salmon steak with stir fry veggies I kinda felt sad for them :/

                That said, I am not sure why you would need three different types of oil in a cupcake unless one was used in the frosting and the other in the cake? Or perhaps different cakes were frosted/made differently? Sounds odd. I'd call them up and ask because a well-made cake is a fantastic thing (yeah, not a fantastic primal thing but I'll get over it the couple of times a year I eat cake.)
                I'm guessing that the three different flavors are made with different oils... But, I checked the package again and saw that they were 3 months past their expiration date... thanks, coworker.

                I was just a bit annoyed by the "may contain eggs" statement because no matter how many times I checked, I couldn't find eggs in the ingredient list.

                Another CW moment

                Milka muffins. That's all I'm gonna say.

                Seriously, people. Milka muffins. Ugh.

                I eat a sandwich for break-fast
                And then I have a sugar blast!
                I eat toasted bread for lunch
                And enjoy my mid-day crunch!
                At dinner I eat pasta

                  Well, it is a legal disclaimer so people with allergies can't sue. You can't bring a products liabilities case and claim you didn't know bc you didn't read (contributory negligence or causation). If it was processed in a facility that also produced on other products with eggs, it will disclaim eggs.

                      Pretty sure that's not going to make much difference to anything.

                        So I can't sue people for throwing wheat/gluten in just about everything, because they list it? ... Damn.
                        But I get it. I wonder how long it took the companies to figure it out. :P


                        Marielle:

                        I really liked Milka when I was younger, but then I found out that I liked dark chocolate more.
                        Don't worry: the muffins looked absolutely disgusting. Like a normal muffin, but with a gob of hardened milka chocolate on it, that looked like it'd fallen out of the sky and squashed the muffin. :S

                        You're right, they still look fine. And before the cupcakes, there were chocolate bon-bons that had been expired for 1 year, and one of my coworkers ate one and said it tasted fine.

                        ... I'm actually waiting for one of the bon-bons to crawl or slither away. Or for a nuclear disaster, only to find out that the bon-bons and the cupcakes survived it.

                            Most companies have lawyers in house to work on this. When I was working in house this summer we spent all our time figuring out how to prevent Litigation.
