Newbie Needing Advice For Hurricane Season
0

9 posts in this topic

Greetings,

While I am new here, I am also new to having Celiac's and I do have a lot of questions but they will come in time as well. However after recently being dx'd at the start of the Atlantic hurricane season, I am needing help getting things ready incase we get hit this year in Louisiana. To complicate things a little more for myself I am also a vegan and planning a gluten free and vegan friendly  food stash for incase of a hurricane feels overwhelming so any suggestions is highly  appreciated.

 

 

Thank you,

 

Serielda

Welcome to the forum!  I sent you a private message with a few names of sites that have stuff just like this.  One of them has been banned from this site and would have been removed.

 

If you are a newbie I would read the newbie 101 thread and read up about cross contamination.  You could also search vegan on here because I have read that a few on here are strictly vegan.

 

I hope you have luck finding what you need.

Im not too helpful other than listing the obvious things. I'd keep cans of fruit, veggies, and beans. You can stock up different nuts or make your own trail mix and store it. You can possibly find some gluten-free crackers and protein bars that are vegan, also. Those are the things I'll go for if a storm hits the gulf.

I think Go Picnic has a few vegan options, too. 

 

If it makes you feel better, this is my first hurricane season, too...just moved to Florida last fall, so I am working on my

own "disaster go-to bag"...as well as the cat's.lol

Actually, the whole message would not have been removed, just so you know.You could list your ideas here so other vegans could read it too.

 

It would just say something like this:

 

(website removed banned from forum) but the content of your message would remain.

 

Sometimes when I link to a ma zon, it says that.message...so I type it like that...a ma zon. Just a suggestion.  ;)

 

(they are banned BTW because they spammed the forum.)

I'm pretty new to this as well, I have discovered Larabars, the ones without chocolate chips are vegan according to their website, I like to get these when they are on sale for $1 each and keep them in. Some have more sugar then others, but they are great in an emergency!

Go picnic has some that are vegan & gluten-free.  You can get them lots of places -even Target & Walmart.  Also, look at what they have in them to give you ideas of things you could get.

 

Whatever you get, you will want to remember to rotate them out and eat them before they go bad.  I speak from experience here!

 

 

 

 

They make little squeeze packs of all kinds of deliciousness.  And the dark chocolate PB cups look to be vegan.

Shelf stable jars of hummus are a good option. Canned beans, canned vegan/gluten-free chili, dried fruits, nuts, etc. are all good choices as well.

    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I'm sure going to have a long talk with my doctor.  Then I'll find a new one that will support me and make sure that my daughter and I both have the proper testing done yearly.  
    • also:  glutendude - i don't get it.  shouldn't it be glutenfreedude?  lolz i eat out few and far between.  most of the times i've been glutened it's been eating out.  this weekend i'm getting my bacon cheeseburger on at red robin  i always get my 'good' waitress - lucky, i guess, paula takes good care of me   and i will eat at bonefish but they have a limited 'safe' menu.  look for places that have the 'GiG'  training they know their stuff.  mellow mushroom, melting pot, california pizza kitchen, pf changs are all supposed to be trained that way.  they know to avoid cc and change their gloves, etc.  
    • I have Common variable immune deficiency (CVID) which has impaired my IgA and my IgG. I have infusions monthly for immunoglobulins. I had a blood test for celiac which showed negative however, I have nearly every celiac symptom. Everything else I have been tested for and believe me I have been tested. Kidneys, Gallbladder, emptying studies, and on and on have all been o.k.    I did go partially gluten free once a long while ago and I did feel better. I wonder if I just go gluten free if it would make a big difference.
