Hi,

I live in Kona and have yet to hear of otehr celiacs in Hilo -- Only know of 4 of us on the west side.

Still someone must be buying all the gluten-free foods at the health food store across from Puainako.

Maybe you can post something on the board there.

If you find any gluten-free friendly restaurants on that side please let me know too. The last time I drove over about ll I could find to eat were bananas!

take care

kenlove,

mind if i just call you ken or even kelly, as i am married? with 2 kids.

Any how , , , ,, next time you are on this side eat tai food at the one across the street from under da banyon . they have a hard name to say but i'll put thier

# 933-2424 so you could bounce off them the ing . they use in which dishs . their food is so good i usually do it take out but they do have 3 styles of eatting in, like ouside , in the middle or very cozy dim lit back section. i eat it at home 'cause i hate to waiste a drop and i love their soups . so we can eat it twice as a family of 3 ...if my girl is eatting elsewhere . then drink the gravey or put it on a packed lunch to head to work once or twice . annother choice is maui taco in prince kuhio plaza , or in a pinch i eat the steamed veggies from the little okazuya style lady.

you know there is wheat in the steamed vaggies at panda express? the only item there wheat free is egg flower soup, or white rice with seet sour sauce . ( i laughed at that 'cause mcdonalds gives a way hand fulls of those sweet sour packets...). i have yet to try their soup but had it at hilo, rice noodle soup., it's on kinoole and my stomck didn't like something so maybe the bokchoi.

i have so many questions .

do you like furikaki? did you know 11 of the 12 or so styles of it have dried shoyu granuales and there fore wheat in it ? are you real strict with your eatting style? i react on what seems like just a teaspoon size or less portion of something . did you know licerice is off limits ? did you know that meens lee hing mui powder is there fore now on my do not eat that again list.

on the other hand if you used to love oreos the ones from glutenfree mall are really good they got the outside down so perfectly but just missed the boat a little on the inside i;m tempted to use a butter knife and scrape the whites from 4 real ones and eat 4 of mine doctored up....sounds funny but a good fix of 4 i think would relly make me happy some days.

i ate one oreo just after doc said this is what i need to do and i reacted .

thanks so much for the bulliton board idea funny i hadn't thoght of it myself as that's where i just sent this colledge age friend to look for rooms to share or apartments that stdents can aford to walk to and from the campus .

hope all is well with you . how long have you been gluten free? say anything i'll read any thing you care to write. just be truth full. you know like they say Keep'in it real"

love and aloha,nancy

Hi nancy,

Oh dont worry, I'm married too -- 32 years worth. ken Love is my real name. Next timeyou look in the health food store and see the poster with all the fruit pictures you'll see my name. I make the posters and work for UH.

I spend a month or 2 in japan each year and get furikake which I know the contents of.I qalso make my own at6 times which is pretty easy. jsut depends what you like in it.

Last time I was at the Thai place place and asked them to make sure there was no flour in the food, they toook the flower off the table. I'm extremley sensitive so I never take chances. Been gluten-free for 3+ years now.

have been working in europe for more than a month and it will good to get home next week

take care

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
