Where are my educated GF tex mex lovers?
Where are my educated GF tex mex lovers??
Tex Mex is my favorite food, and I’ve been blessed because there seems to be a lot of GF options within tex mex. Just substitute corn tortillas for flour and viola! Or so I thought…
Tonight I reacted to something… trying to figure out what is was. I ate tamales, then about 30 minutes later chocolate milk (go ahead and judge me for that combination, don’t blame you?). When I researched tamales, everything I found said tamales were GF since masa is made from corn. When i check the ingredient list for my H-E-B store bought tamales, nothing alarmed. I’ve been eating tamales frequently over the last few weeks, and not reacted. Tamales from different places (not just store bought H-E-B, some from mom and pop places), but still. Now for the milk, it was regular skim milk flavored with the powdered Nesquik. I checked and double check the ingredients and nothing got my attention.
I felt fine all day. 30 minutes after dinner, my stomach hurts and I’m nauseous.
Am I missing something??

Side note- I have been “cheating” more often the last week. Holidays and being away from my GF home and with family members that aren’t GF knowledgable. I’ve had mild stomach aches and minor GI issues but nothing like what I’m feeling right now, which is why my mind is leading me to the tamales or chocolate milk.
