sunshine20 added a topic in Gluten-Free TravelTraveling To Cabo, Mexico Beginning Of MayHas anyone been to this resort specifically? Or more generally, how about Mexico? Looking forward to authentic Mexican food and I'd think it'd be less contaminated, but maybe not.
I'm going to email the resort to see about their gluten free menu items, but thought I'd also post here.
Thanks for any info or tips!

sunshine20 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Publications & PublicityYahoo Homepage 'health News' Top StoryI just logged into Yahoo and one of the top stories staring me in the face is on Celiac Disease! The link to the story is below. The quote I find most interesting...
'At Wal-Mart, "gluten-free" products are hitting the shelves this month. The retailing giant is requiring suppliers to identify whenever gluten is used in its private-label products, said Bob Anderson, general merchandise manager of the company's Great Value brand.
So far, 982 of the company's 1,254 products have been identified as gluten-free.'
That means 78% of their food items should be ok for us to eat. I'll be looking to see if they also introduce actual gluten-free food (breads, cookies) or if it'll just be 'normal' items like applesauce and canned veggies etc. Either way, once a big retailer starts a trend the others generally follow suit, so one more small battle won for us Celiac's!

sunshine20 added a topic in Gluten-Free TravelDenver, CoJust wondering if there are any celiac disease friendly restaurants and grocery stores in and around the Denver area. My husband and I are considering moving there and will be visiting for a long wknd soon, then will decide about a permanent move. I live in the Chicago 'burbs now and the selection of restaurants and grocery stores that stock food I can eat is really great. Hoping for the same out west. Thanks in advance!

sunshine20 added a topic in Celiac Disease - Post Diagnosis, Recovery/Treatment(s)Organ Donation?Not sure if this is the right category for this, but last night, my husband and I were talking about how we want to donate our organs if we would unfortunately no longer need them. Morbid subject, but hey, it's a necessary one! He asked me if I'd be able to donate my intestines because of my celiac disease. I'm not even sure a person can donate their intestines, but if so, can Celiacs? And are there any other organ donation restrictions we have - either giving or receiving?
If anyone knows, that would be great!
Hope everyone is having a great Turkey Day!

sunshine20 added a topic in Gluten-Free TravelVegas - Paris Hotel BuffetWe'll be going to the Paris hotel buffet in Las Vegas this upcoming weekend as part of a wedding party/reception. I emailed the hotel this morning, but wondered if anyone had visited there recently? I also realize in general that buffets are not the best for Celiacs, but it's a part of the wedding reception, so it's not like I can't go. And I gotta believe there's at least one thing there that I could eat!
