I’m going on a family vacation soon, and I’m the only one with dietary restrictions. What grocery store would you recommend going to for gluten and dairy free stuff? Is there a really good family restaurant to visit? Any other recommendations?

I believe a Costco store is nearby your location and they offer a variety of gluten-free breads and sandwich meat items as well as other products throughout the store.  You may have to have an employee for assistance regarding finding the products.  Also, Safeway stores offer gluten free products as well.  I consume lots of fresh veggies and fruits along with gluten-free products.  As for restaurants that can be recommended, you can search that out on the net and read the reviews.  I sometimes find a restaurant and then I phone them and ask them how they prepare the food before I arrive to ensure I don't get sick.  Hope this helps and good luck!

Are you in Utah?  I don't think there is a Costco or Safeway anywhere near Moab.

 

You could certainly stock up in a bigger city on the way.  Salt Lake City has a lot of good groceries and a few gluten-free bakeries.  If you are coming from that direction.

If you end up as far North as Provo/Orem, I can tell you everywhere to go. Probably not likely, I don't know where you're coming from though and where you'll drive through. If you come up from the south, check out things in St. George, maybe there's a Real Foods store down there, the selection isn't super but what they have is awesome. Good Earth is great too, or Sprouts. I'm not sure how they do things down in St. George, but up here most regular grocery stores have a good selection of gluten free options. There is for sure a Harmon's down there, they're great. But if you come from the north, Provo/Orem is your last bastion of real civilization so stop in Orem (our options are better than Provo's) and stock up. If you're coming through Grand Junction, I can't help.

 

Also, if you're coming down from the north, DO NOT miss Eleanor's in Sandy and Sweet Cakes in Salt Lake City. I promise, they are well worth it. Eleanor's is a little tricky to find in a brick building, but is really quick off the freeway and both have to die for cupcakes. Eleanor's also has real food too, so you can grab lunch. You won't be sorry!

You guessed it, I'll be coming from Grand Junction, unless we make an extremely random side-trip to some other state. I'll keep these in mind anyway :D thank you!!

I think that wouldn't be too bad of an idea! I don't know how many cars we'll be taking, but maybe I can talk everyone in to letting me keep my own cooler with product from a Costco or Sam's Club or something.

We always travel with a cooler -- even before we went gluten-free. We now travel in a RV which makes it super easy, but I went on girl's weekend (kids too) and I was the only one who had celiac disease. I brought the cooler, used the hotel frig and tailgates when I was not able to find safe food.

I also kept a GO Picnic and other shelf stable foods in my purse.

    • This subject is often raised on this site, especially by women.  I am prompted to raise it again today, having spoken to my doctor who has said that she has noticed that celiacs often have thin hair, especially in later years.   Rather than just accept what she thinks is just the inevitable I would really like to hear from anyone who really has seen great improvement in their own hair and what they did. There are lots of tips on line but I am particularly interested in hearing from someone who has actually been there, done that, and now has better hair!

    • Oh i hope so!! I'm really anxious about the procedure as I've never done it before. I've been through operations but never an endoscopy and the thought of it is really scaring me! Thank you for giving me some courage! 
    • You are right, the tests could be invalid.   All the celiac tests require you to be on a gluten-containing diet.  It is up to you to decide if you want to go gluten free.  You can do it.  Believe me, I know.  Hubby is not officially diagnosed.  He went gluten-free 15 years ago, based on the rather poor advice from my allergist and his GP.  It worked though.  But he would be the first to tell you that I have had way more support in terms of family and medical.    We think he has it.  Both of our families are riddled with autoimmine disorders.  I am the first to be diagnosed.   My Aunt went gluten free per the advice of her Chiropractor.  Her other doctors never suspected celiac disease.  The diet obviously worked for her.  Her daughter (my cousin) is a nurse.  She had an endoscopy but they did not check for celiac disease.  She chose to go gluten-free too since it worked for her mom.  Both will not do a gluten challenge.  However, my diagnosis has helped them get proper medical treatment.  My Aunt is very active in a celiac support group.    Now everyone in my family knows about celiac disease.  My own niece was just diagnosed with Crohn's, but her GI did test and will continue to test her for celiac disease.  You can develop additional autoimmune disorders at any time.   So far, a few other members have been tested.  No one else had had a celiac disease diagnosis yet.  Time will tell.  If I can save someone from the misery of struggling to get a diagnosis, then I can feel good.   Now, an official diagnosis will help you adhere to the diet .  You can get follow-up care.  Get checked for other things like SIBO, H. Pylori and cancer.  But ultimately, it is up to you.   Whatever you decided to do, please consider a family health history chart.  You might someday help a grandchild.   The stool tests?  In all my research, leading celiac experts do not recommend them.  http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/ gene testing?  Some 30% of the poulation carries the celiac genes.  It just tells you that you have the chance to develop celiac disease.  It can not diagnose you.    
    • The procedure is a breeze. You will go in, be sedated and go to sleep for a short nap and then it's over. Some people will have a bit of a sore throat but not everyone does. For me the hardest part of the endo was not being able to drink coffee when I got up. You seem to have been back on gluten for long enough to have the test but as CLady said there is a good chance your blood work may be negative. In your case you may want to continue eating gluten after the biopsy at least until you get your blood results. If they are negative consider going a bit longer and getting them redone.
