How About New Jersey?

I might be interested in a Union group, I don't think that is too far from where I live (in the Long Valley area). By the way, if anyone is in Hackettstown, Mama's pizzeria has a new and seemingly very good gluten free menu with pizza. It looks good.

Hi Karen & Deb-

I live in New Providence & work in Summit. Would love to meet some other Celiacs. I was diagnosed in 6/07 & have been doing this all by myself -- didn't know this chat room was here. There is a Whole Foods in Chatham that I use. They actually have relatively decent hamburger buns :D & there prairie bread makes great bread crumbs.

I would be very interested in a Union County support group. I am a colon cancer survivor, so Celiac Disease on top of that is a real shock! Would love to meet & talk!

I live in Vineland, NJ. Was just diagnosed a week ago.

We're in Vineland too. Have you tried Conte's Gluten free Pasta? We are using Conte's for the Pasta dish in our wedding in August. No one will be able to tell it's gluten free!

The Gluten Free Market carries Conte's products. they are in Fair Lawn. I don't know how far you are from there, but we live near Parsippany and it takes about 1/2 hour to get there, up 287 to 208 and they are right off 208. I was trying to find out their store hours the other day, though, and had typed their name into a search engine to see if they had a website (they don't seem to, I couldn't find it) but a For Sale listing for them popped up from Craigslist! I didn't know they were selling the store! I hope whoever buys it keeps it a gluten free market!

I'm recently diagnosed and I'm looking for friends in NJ :) I live in central Jersey, Metuchen, Edison area.

Hello,

My name is Kim. I know you had posted this post quite a while ago, I don't know if you found anybody from New Jersey or not Gluten Free. I know it is a bit of a small distance but I am from Burlington County area. I am also gluten free, and looking for some gluten free friends.

Well I hope to talk to you soon.

Kim

I'm in S. Jersey. Diagnosed 18 mos. ago. I knew I was in trouble when my GI doc asked me if I had a threshold for gluten containing products!!! Am having a terrible time with DH...just won't go away! Any and all help would be appreciated.

I grew up in Wayne, in North Jersey and although I don't live there anymore, I'm down there often enough to make checking this thread worthwhile. I hope to learn where to go for a good meal next time I'm there! Last time, I went to a pizza place with lots of gluten-free options on Allen St. in the L.E.S. (not in NJ).

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
