  1. Be sure to eat at the Liberty Tree in the Magic Kingdom!! My husband was treated like a king there!! I even took a picture of him with all of his gluten free food. The chef came out and talked to him before hand and talked with him about what he'll be served. He had ham, turkey, roast, mashed potatoes, green beans, macaroni and cheese and a roll. For dessert he had a brownie with ice cream. I asked the chef if I could have her roll recipe. She told me they were prepackaged and she brought out an empty package of EnerG Tapioca rolls so I could buy them when I got home. I know this sounds strange but I almost started tearing up at how he was treated. He felt safe. You know when you go somewhere and there's always that thought in the back of your mind "Is it really gluten free? Do they really know about the gluten free diet?" There were no doubts there. Disney was wonderful!! My husband was also able to get a gluten free pizza at Pizza Planet in the MGM near the Toy Story stuff. Every sit down restaurant we went to was very helpful. WDW restaurants seem to be very knowledgable about the gluten-free diet. I wish all restaurants were!! Enjoy your trip!
  2. A friend of a friend who has Celiac said that she takes the supplement Multizyme to breakdown gluten. Said she got it from a chiropractor that studied kinesiology. I am curious if anyone has tried this and if it really works or not. Thanks!
  3. We will be staying in Washington DC next week. Any suggestions for gluten-free restaurants out there? We've thought about carrying a lunch with us but so many places will not let you bring food in. Thanks for the help!
  4. We are headed to DC in July. Are there any gluten-free dinning spots there? Also, any ideas on what to see or what not to see would be appreciated too! Thanks!
  5. Branson, Mo

    We are going to Branson in August and was wondering if any of you had any gluten-free suggestions. We are staying at the Stillwaters Lakefront Resort and I know we are going to Silver Dollar City. I am also hoping to go on the Showboat Branson Belle. Thanks for you help.
  6. Looking for something good (gluten-free of course) to make for our super bowl party. What are you bringing? Also, I've been craving that Hormel Chili cheese dip but it has oats and wheat in it I think. Does anyone have another recipe that is similiar to it? Go Giants!
  7. Butt Pain... Tmi

    Okay, this is an embarassing topic but we need to know. Dh has celiac. He's been gluten-free for about 1.5 years. He has done real good about staying gluten-free but lately if he is accidentally glutened he gets sick for a week. The problem that lingers on so long is his butt pain. He doesn't think it's hemrroids. He swears (and this is the TMI part) that up inside his butt tightens, therefore he can't poop. He said he's not constipated, that his BM is soft but again swears it's up inside that's tight. Can anyone help us with this? Is this a symptom of celiac? What can we do to help him? For a week afterwards it is very hard for him to sit and is very painful. Thanks so much for your input.
  8. Wisconsin Dells

    We are going to the Dells in February and staying at the Great Wolf Lodge. I haven't called the restaurant there yet but will soon. Any other suggestions for eating gluten-free in the Dells?
  9. Here is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. You've got to try it. The cookies are awesome and they stay soft and chewy for days. I think they are better than "gluten" cookies. 1 c. butter 3/4 c packed brown sugar 1/4 c sugar 1 package (3.4 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix 2 eggs 1 t vanilla 2 1/4 c gluten-free flour (*I use Bette Hagaman's Featherlight rice flour mix-see below) 1 t baking soda 1/2 t xanthum gum 2 c semisweet choco chips Cream butter, sugars, and pudding mix. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and xanthum gum; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. *Bette's Featherlight mix - Exchange "gluten" flour in recipes cup for cup with this flour mix. Rice flour (1 part) Tapioca flour (1 part) Cornstarch (1 part) Potato flour-NOT starch (1 teas per cup) I usually make 12 cups worth at a time which would be 4 cups each rice, tapioca and cornstarch and 4 tablespoons potato flour.
  10. Thank you so much for the great advice. I love this board!!
  11. I have been making some AWESOME (if I do say so myself ) gluten-free choco chip cookies for my dh but lately he has been feeling glutened after eating them. I thought Nestle semi sweet were gluten-free but now am doubting my "gluten-free knowledge". One of the ingredients is vanillin-an artificial flavor. Is this gluten-free? What kind of chocolate chips do you use? Also, does Heinz ketchup bother anyone? He has been waking up with terrible reflux during the night after having Heinz ketchup. I do think he is sensitive to tomato products but was still wondering about Heinz. Thanks so much for your help. This site has been a Godsend to us.
  12. We went down to Disney last week and were just thrilled with how accomadating they were!! Our favorite resturant was in Magic Kingdom, Liberty Tree Tavern. My celiac husband was very spoiled there. We even took a picture of him with all of his gluten free food. The head chef came out and spoke to him and brought him all of his gluten-free food. His rolls were awesome. I asked the chef for her recipe and she told me they were premade and gave me the empty bag so I could find them somewhere. (They were EnerG.) He also had roast, turkey, and ham with gravy, mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, green beans and for dessert a delicious brownie with ice cream. Dh was treated like a king there! At MGM, Pizza Planet made him a gluten-free pizza that was very good. And for supper we ate at Hollywood and Vine. The chef came out and took my dh down the buffet and told him what he could have. The chef also made fish for dh. He also got dessert there but I forgot what it was. We were so impressed with Disney! We'd definately go back.
  13. Trip To Wisconsin Dells

    My husband has celiac. We've been gluten free since June 2006. We went to the Dells last summer. We packed a lot of food for him to eat. Bread, lunch meat, chips, peanut butter and jelly, etc. We stayed at Mount Olympus so when it was lunch time we went back to the room and ate. It worked out well for us. It was a lot to bring but gives him peace of mind knowing he's not going to get sick on vacation. A lot of times when we go to resturants to eat he will get a salad with chicken. Kraft dressings are good about labeling their foods. Hope this helps!
  14. I am wanting to try lorka's bread recipe but want to know if there is a difference between Flax Seed Meal and Milled Flax Seed. If so, where can I find Flax Seed Meal? Thanks for your help!
  15. Can someone tell me if there is a difference between "Flax Seed Meal" and "Milled Flax Seed"? If so, where can I find Flax Seed Meal at? Thanks so much. I can't wait to make this bread.
