  1. Hi, Thought I'd add my experience: I developed HELLP syndrome and my daughter was born at 34 weeks (4 lb). This was before I was diagnosed as celiac... I am not a doctor, but have been reading up on possible connections. My daughter is now 4 and she's amazing. I'm gluten free and feel great. So all in all a great outcome!
  2. Hi again, Just updating in case people are searching for Santa Fe... Chocolate Maven - had a really nice breakfast with my daughter there yesterday. The waiter brought me some wonderful home-made corn tortillas instead of toast, though. I searched for the gluten free desserts, but there were only macaroons. Udi's Bread - my absolute favorite sandwich/toast bread (whole grain) - they have this at Whole Foods. The bread is in the bread section, but in the frozen section they also have Udi's blueberry muffins. Vinaigrette - GREAT! I could eat nearly everything (and at the moment I'm dairy-free, too). Really wonderful salads, and all but two dressings were gluten and dairy free. It's kind of hidden, but right near downtown. Paisano's in Albuquerque - I haven't tried this yet, but someone told me about it. I looked at the website, and I'm really excited to try it if we get down to Albuquerque. India Palace - they have a lunch buffet and I could eat everything but the Naan (and the tandoori chicken because of the yogurt - so it's only a dairy issue). They cook with ghee, not butter. The buffet is really great - a sort of upscale buffet. You can also order from the menu at lunch time, so if you want pakora - chickpea flour! - you can add that. Kohnami - Guadalupe St. - A sushi place. I bring my own wheat-free soy sauce. I never asked if they had any - probably should ask and stop carrying this little container around!! I'm not even including New Mexican restaurants, because there are a lot of options, and if you stick to corn tortillas and be sure to ask how they thicken their chile sauce (flour v. cornstarch) then it's pretty safe. Hope this helps people who are visiting our city - enjoy!
  3. Chocolate Maven has gluten-free desserts... what a wonderful bakery! And I just heard (but haven't confirmed) that Harry's Roadhouse (locals' favorite!) has gluten-free baked goods, too.
