Hi everyone,

I am from the carlsbad, oceanside area.

Sushi is great, I found a great little sushi place by my house, only thing is it gets very expensive. I want to start making my own sushi but the only thing is I have no idea where to buy sashimi grade fish. I've checked albertesons and ralph's. The quality of the meat and fish at Ralph's is sketchy.

Has anyone ever had a torched sushi roll? those are the best!

Mmmm, I envy you. You're close to the water. There have to be one or two fish markets, or asian markets? Asian markets often carry the freshiest fish. There was a Ranch 99 market in N. Hollywood where I lived for several years where some of the fish was still moving when they turned it out onto the table, LOL. Do you have a Ranch 99 market near you? They stock a lot of asian foods and specialty stuff and almost always have a good fish counter. The downside there is you'll probably have to debone and skin yourself, but the quality make sit worth the trouble. I've never had a torched sushi roll? What is that? I'm still struggling to make a decent seared tuna.

Sadly, I won't be having any soy sauce of any sort. My brain just woke up in early June while trying soy elimination test. So I'm NoSoyBoy from here on out!!! :) :)

But I expect to still enjoy sushi, albeit in a new way, w/ no soy/wasabi mixture. Argh! It better still be awesome!!

Try seasoned rice vinegar instead of soy sauce. It's not bad. :)

I was very skeptical of sushi for years but once I tried it I fell in love. I did alot of research about making Sushi at home and you need to get the fish from a specialized food market, like whole foods or an Asian market with a fish counter. I'm going to be traveling down to Carlsbad in a few months. Any places you'd strongly recommend for dining options?

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

:D Thank you for this post!! I can't wait to go to Maggianos for gluten-free pizza!

I just read this thread as I have just joined as well. I'm in Merced and drive to Stockton for work. I recently found a store run by a nice lady that is called "It's Gluten Free" in Turlock. The store is off of Monte Vista, west of the 99 and is in the Costco Parking/ Shopping center area. I was pleased with the amount of products available (way more than Raley's in Merced). I look forward to more learning on this forum.

    • Gluten withdrawal. It's real. I agree with what cstark said but I call it gluten withdrawal. Your body really does get "addicted" to gluten and when you go gluten-free, then the body has to cope with the withdrawal of a substance it was used to getting on a regular basis even though that substance was killing you. It isn't much different than drug addiction & the withdrawal process from that.  It sucks, I know but I promise it will get better. Rest as much as you can, drink tons of water, eat well cooked foods to ease the strain on your villi. Bone broth - home made - is a great healer of the gut & very gentle on it as well as being extremely nourishing. Just google how to make it. {{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}
    • Push for the endoscopy.  My GI said at the initial consult that he didn't think I had celiac but wanted to do the scope to "rule it out"  When he saw me immediately after the endo, while I was still in recovery, he saw enough damage to change his position and sure enough the biopsy came back positive.
    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
