  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Hello, Just wanted to add to your list of great restaurants. I have eaten at many "Gluten Free" places and most fail to deliver to my satisfaction. I have to say that the Blue Bonnet (Mexican food) exceeded my expectations! They hired the Gluten Free Detectives to come in and certify the menu and kitchen. They have by far the most educated staff i've seen. It starts with the owners who come to my table every time I'm there (twice a week) and care so much about my experience. They have an area of the kitchen dedicated to gluten free food and utinsels. The greatest thing is that all of their normal food is served on white dishes, where as the gluten free dishes are served on yellow or red dishes that way there's less confusion. They even serve seperate chips that are gluten free and home made! The Gluten Free Detectives spent two weeks with the entire staff educating them on our special needs. Please show your support and get in there for some great mexican food to keep the dream alive! Keep on keeping on!
  3. That's awesome! I have been craving Tokyo Joe's! I live in Denver, and I will contact the location downtown. Thanks for the info!
  4. Jay Robb makes an egg white based protein bar. I have tried the powders and they taste great!
  5. Jay Robb, offers a protein powder derived from eggs. I hear it's really good. I have tried the vanilla whey, and I am very satisfied. They sell his products at Wild Oats, or you can purchase online. He also has gluten free protein bars!
  6. I would be happy to help! Feel free to email me. Rooallee@yahoo.com

  11. I'm 6'1" and I went through a huge growth spurt my junior and senior year in High school. I still have knee and back pain! I think I developed Celiac a little bit later in life.
  12. Steve-O, I can empathize with you. I have been battling weight gain my whole life! It's a constant effort. I'm 6'1" and 170lbs. I had neck surgery in October and wasn't able to hit the weights or eat properly for 2 months. Prior to surgery I was 183lbs! I am now trying to gain it back. Just last month I was 165lbs. The only way you are going to gain quality weight, is by consuming more lean protein and healthy fats. I foud a great web site to help track your consumption www.fitday.com. The math is pretty simple, if you burn more calories than you are getting, you will loose or only maintain your current weight. There is a difference between gaining empty calories and gaining quality lean muscle. The goal is to consume 1gm of protein per pound of your body weight, or desired weight. It's difficult to eat that much protein with food alone. I also am very sensitive to protein supplements. However, I have found an excellent protein powder made by Nature's Best. It's called Perfect Zero Carb Isopure. It's more expensive than most of the supplements on the market, but it gives you 50grams of high quality protein. It's very clean and simple and gives me no problems. They also add a substantial amount of glutamine, which is great for intestinal repair. You can order it at a discount from vitaminshopp.com. Also consider creatine supplements. This really helps with strength and muscle gain Are you lifting weights? I apologize if you have already posted that. I saw the first message and had to start writing! Strength training is a key ingredient to gaining weight. If your interested, I would be happy to help you design a strength training program and share some of my eating habbits with you. I have been in the fitness industry for 7 years, and have aquired alot of knowlege on health and fitness in general. I am excited to share my knowlege with you! To your health!
  13. Hello, I had a great experience at Tamayo, located on 14th & Larimar. The Executive Chef was extremely helpful. They serve upscale Mexican cuisine. I had the filet mignon with avocado and corn enchiladas. There are only a couple of dishes that are served with flour tortillas. The chef was very concerned and curious about Celiac disease. He wanted to make sure I had a wonderful experience, and I did! He was also interested in developing a gluten free menu! I have had positive experiences at Ted's of Montana, which is also on 14th & Larimar. I have the Bison burger with cheddar and all the fixins! The burgers are prepared in a seperate area. The chef and Manager have been very helpful and understanding. I also read that The Vesta Dipping Grill will cater to our needs. Can't wait to try it! Cheers!
