      Hey there,

      I'm going to PSL this wknd! I dont know any specifically gluten-free places but i do know i am going to a place in Palm Beach Gardens one night called Seasons 52 - it is supposed to be a "healthy" restaurant so i'm sure they can accommodate. Other than that, i plan on going to Publix and stocking up on snacks, as i'm sure i cant eat anything at the ballparks.

      Have fun - i love spring training!

      Oh and go mets

      Stonyfield Farms Yogurt
      Hey guys,

      I just happened to check out the Stonyfield Farms website (I couldn't find the kind i used to buy and wanted to see whether it was still available) and i found this link:

      Certified Gluten Free

      Apparently, they have (finally) completed their gluten-free certification process and now ALL of their yogurts are gluten-free! I for one am ecstatic, as I am not a huge fan of plain yogurt and this has always been my favorite brand.

      Aww, thanks Deb - I definitely fall under the category of those who disappeared for a while... it's definitely a sign that I've adjusted to the diet but I have learned so much from you guys and just wanted to say thanks to everyone that helped me get to where i am with this diet. Maybe when things quiet down a little for me i'll be able to post more regularly again. In the meantime...

    4. mookie03 added a post in a topic Ny Timies Health Page   

      Funny, i laughed when they talked about using the diet to lose weight because you cant eat twinkies - i for one ate healthy before the diet and now i eat much more sugar, carbs, etc. b/c the gluten-free substitutes are simply not as healthy as their gluten-filled counterparts. I didn't love the tone of the article - i was thinking that if i didnt know anything about gluten i would have thought it was some weird fad or something. The writer seemed to think that people are blaming gluten for everything, when really i think a bigger problem is the lack of knowledge about gluten.

      But, publicity is publicity. Great to see gluten in the times!

      FYI - the Carvel at Yankee stadium and shea are gluten-free...had some today at Shea

      I have also had the popcorn without any problems (at both places). And the shelled peanuts. those are the only foods i will eat at either place though. Actually, today i also had a fruit salad because apparently you can order it from the good seats - who knew?!

    7. mookie03 added a post in a topic Glutened At Bonefish Last Night!   

      Just an FYI - the only time i have eaten at Bonefish they brought my meal out with the garnish - i had seen on the menu that it wasnt gluten-free so i asked the waiter and he INSISTED it was gluten-free - i spoke to the manager and he took it back. But the point is, my experience was that the waiters were not well-informed about gluten - the other waiter i spoke to and asked for the gluten-free menu said "i dont know what that is but i'm pretty sure we dont have one!" SO while their food may be good and their intentions are great, i dont know how well-trained the staff is. I suggest being very assertive with your waiter or speaking with the manager when you eat there.

    9. mookie03 added a post in a topic What To Eat At Sporting Events?   

      I guess shame on me too, but I eat popcorn at games all the time. I am a sports fanatic so i go to games all the time and the only things i will eat at baseball games are popcorn, soft serve ice cream and peanuts in the shell. I have never gotten sick (not that those options are so great) because i have yet to find gluten in those items - i know it could be there, but im pretty sensitive so im pretty sure i havent been glutened

      Jillian - that's awesome! And good for you for calling corporate - i thought about it but have been really busy and havent had a chance - i guess the more people that call the more likely they are to institute a policy about it. FYI, was at Woodbury Commons today and they had it at the starbucks there too...its everywhere!

      So i walk into starbucks today and the first thing i see in that little case of treats is a gluten-free Brownie called the Aztec Ancho Chili Brownie (random!) It was in the case with the rest of the pastries - wasnt touching anything but i was still a little hesitant (and not hungry). Anyway, has anyone tried it? This was in Midtown NYC. Seems like a strange flavor and i dont know if it is any good, but i was thinking if Starbucks is carrying gluten free, it really has become mainstream...

      So funny - it totally didnt strike me that way. I am from NY and i feel like everywhere i go these days, when i tell people i have celiac (or an allergy to gluten, as i do say sometimes when i'm around people who probably dont know what celiac disease is), they always say things like that - it seems like everyone knows someone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance these days. I assumed that was how it was intended - and that someone involved in the show has celiac and threw it in.

      i got 3 phone calls after that episode to tell me i needed to watch it, but no one would tell me why - they said "there is one line that made me think of you"

      NYC is wonderful for gluten-free dining. However, i am not that familiar with the area up there. The closest i can offer you is Sambuca on West 72nd and Josephina's in Lincoln Center (no gluten-free menu but very accommodating). Also Fairway market on W74th has an upstairs that has tons of gluten-free options if you need to pick up anything. I definitely recommend getting downtown to Risotteria and if you go to, you will find many other gluten-free restaurants that are only a short cab ride away.
