Hi where are you in central California? I live in Manteca (near Stockton/Modesto) but spend the majority of my time in the Bay Area cuz of friends/family and work.
Welcome to the board. :)

Hey! I am in Fresno, RIGHT in the center of the state. Can't remember how far Manteca is, seems to me it's about a two-hour drive? I don't spend much time in the Bay area, used to, but not too much now. Oh, I am a little daunted by the thought of travel now....just diagnosed four days ago, what would I eat??? :o

Awww...don't feel bad. I'm gluten free for several months now and still dont know what to eat. :huh:
If you dont have other intolerances the diet is fairly easy (for me it was anyways). I got alot of other problems so its basically just meat and veggies for me right now....and yeah...no traveling. :(

Theres so much you can eat thats gluten free though. Seriously, theres a store here in the Bay Area thats got everything gluten free. Its great. Whole Foods has alot of stuff. You'll learn alot from this board. My regular grocery store hyas a big gluten free section...I never even realized it was there until I looked for gluten-free stuff. You'll be surprised at all you can eat. Its not that bad. :)

I'm near San Jose. I'm with you on the not knowing what to eat. I'm going to Disneyland in about a week and a half and am terrified even though I hear it's one of the better places to eat if you have special dietary needs, lol.

I am from Sacramento. Not far from the Bay Area. I am curious what store you are talking about. I agree, Whole Foods is great but also expensive (friends have nick named it Whole Paycheck).

Thanks!

Its a little health store in Cupertino. Its called Cupertino Nutrition. They carry alot of supplements but also the biggest selection of gluten-free foods I've seen in one place. Thats how I found out about them. They have a huge sign that reads "Biggest selection of gluten-free products in the Bay Area". :)

Thanks! I might have to check it out some time. Davis has something similar though it has more "supplements" then food.

Thanks for the info!

Wow, thanks for the link...it has some great information!

Cupertino Nutrition is WONDERFUL...they are so helpful and they did indeed have a great selection.

Pturse - I've had one of the Whole Foods employees joke about Whole Paycheck, so something tells me they've heard that before. :D

Hello I Live in Northern California and have been a "CELIAC" for about 4 years now and most of what I have learned has been trial and error and products especially the last two years have really turned around.

I loved to travel to the bay area because there is alot more to choose from but I all these products are spendy and there is nothing worse than buying products but not able to eat them so my word of advice for you is check out this site first before shopping. They rate all the products and I have found it to be a great indicator when purchasing products such as bread, snacks and so forth. Now if you order from them there is shipping and handeling where I have found a few times I have ordered to check it out such as LARABAR's and once I tasted it I was on the hunt where I just recently found these bars close to home and cheaper..

Also a year ago I broke down and purchase a gluten free dining guide which I have used several times.

I hope this information helps.

Good Luck

Hi....I'm in Nevada City (in the foothills, between Sacramento and Lake Tahoe). I went to graduate school in Fresno, so I know the area (we lived in Clovis) ! Hang in there....I think it will get easier. I'm feeling overwhelmed right now too, but I have my mom as an example...and she learned to live with celiac quite well, all alone, with no support group at all. So if she could do it, so can we all!

Hey! I'm from Central California, Dixon near Sacramento. And, yes, we can eat Mexican food. Thank God for corn tortillas. The only real Celiac store is in Davis, CA and it's called the Natural Food Works. Lots of gluten-free stuff.

Let me know where exactly you are!

I'm is Stanford, (Palo Alto) and I have been gluten free all my life. I would say that you should join the Yahoo group BayAreaCeliacs, it is a lot of help. I run the Bay Area ROCK group with my mom and other people around us. If you want to come to San Jose Area Maggianos is Santana Row best place it is Italian food, and they make gluten-free pizza and have Tinkyada pasta always there, just call ahead and make sure they know that you are gluten-free and they will make sure to have supplies. There are many other places in this area, e-mail me and I can tell you more places, but the celicbayarea is really the best place to start for places to eat out.
e-mail me and I can help more, celiacmolly08@mac.com
