Nor do they claim to be. Guess I should have checked here http://www.tacobell.com/nutrition/allergens before going there! I thought "meat, cheese, lettuce, corn tortilla...these should be okay." Wrong!
I guess as you have probably already guessed, I had a couple crunchy taco's yesterday and spent the afternoon sicker than sick. It seems the further I get from my gluten days, the sicker gluten is making me (when I accidentally ingest it). Gone are the days when I thought I might cheat to have a slice of pizza. It is just not worth it. Yesterday, I ate my tacos, came home and suddenly had a case of (what I thought was) pink-eye. I immediately put colloidal silver in it (which works great for pink-eye) and laid down. I fell into this sort of weird sleep where I was in and out and just felt kind of out of it. When I woke up, I felt like I was going to throw out (as my dear little daughter used to say). I gulped down an Emergen-C and later took a ginger, a couple milk thistle and some digestive enzymes. I slept horribly last night, waking up often, which I do not normally do. Even this morning my stomach is still churning and crampy.
Taco, you definitely were not worth it! I would like to mention here that we actually very rarely eat out. We rarely ate out before going gluten-free, so even more so now. But yesterday my floors were being refinished and I didn't have time to pack us something to eat before we left because I was trying to get everything up and out of the way. I spent my "gluten-drunk" afternoon sleeping it off in my camper where my little girls and I ended up spending the night (floor fumes). Not my best day, but now I know and you do too!
Update: 2 days later and I still have that "just been run over by a Mac truck" feeling. I'm having pains in my legs, fuzzy head and stomach woes. I once questioned whether a little gluten could really make you "that" sick. Well, now I know...it makes you THAT sick! I will definitely be exercising more caution in regards to what goes in my mouth!
