I am going on a 2 week trip all the way from San Diego to Crater Lake in Oregon. I have already done a lot of research on places to eat, bakerys and grocery stores... but if anyone has any input at all on what places are specifically good.. that would be really helpful.. thanks!

Grocery stores: besides Whole Foods there are Trader Joe's all over California, and they carry a number of gluten free items, such as their own brand of gluten free pastas and brown rice tortillas and gluten free granolas.

I'm still working on finding restaurants besides Outback and Old Spaghetti Factory that have gluten free menus....I've been scared to eat out.

Have a great trip!

Multiple autoimmune diseases, including celiac, Hashimoto's, psoriasis, autoimmune hepatitis, RA, SLE. Also have fibromyalgia.

Tested Fall 2008: bloodwork, biopsy negative; HLA DQ8. Doctor believes results negative due to prednisone and Imuran taken for autoimmune hepatitis.

Dx with celiac disease because of dietary response, genetics, and family history of celiac disease.


Dx with Lyme Disease Jan 2010; Lyme likely triggered some of the AI diseases.

Gluten free since 25 Nov 2008

http://glutenfreeinsd.com/ for restaurant's...the website is great...i'm newly gluten-free so haven't eaten out much, but we check this website before we venture out.

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

I would highly suggest West Steak House or King's Fish House in Carlsbad, CA, slightly north of San Diego. In Santa Cruz there's a great sushi place, Mobo, and they're willing to accommodate. They even have gluten-free soy sauce on the tables. In the bay area Zadin is really good, and Amici's Pizza serves my fav gluten-free pizza. Then in the greater Sacramento area I'd suggest trying the burger in a bowl at The Counter and U Food Grill. And you really should make a trip to the Gluten Free Specialty in downtown Sacramento, one of three all gluten-free markets in CA. The staff is very knowledgeable and carry a wide selection of fresh baked goods, snacks, mixes, etc. Hope you have a good trip.

Ive heard that The Cheesecake Factory is really good about accomodating food allergies. If you are in Eureka, its on the 101 between the Bay Area and Oregon, stop by Eureka Natural Foods they have tons of gluten-free items and a kick ass juice bar!

Thanks for the input everyone. I didn't know cheesecake factory accomodated.. I have one 20 minutes away from my house.. I will have to check it out. And speaking of sushi... I know if I buy it packaged... it usually has gluten in it... but is sushi usually gluten free when made fresh? Because the only ingredients are rice, fish, maybe vegies and sea weed.

You have to be careful about sushi rice, because it usually is made with a type of vinegar that has gluten in it. When I go out for sushi I order steamed rice instead of sushi rice, nothing deep fried, or with imitation crab, and no sauces, and I've never had any problems when following those guidelines.

We were is San Diego last month and there is so many choices I want to live there. There is a Pei Wei, Chipolte and a Z Pizza. In Poway there is a Red Brick pizza and in Temecula there is a Pizza Fusion. But my absolute favorite is that the Whole Foods in La Jolla (right by San Diego) serves gluten free deli sandwiches made to order! They were the best! Amazing gluten free bread and anything you want on it! I got a turkey, bacon and avacado sandwich and it was enough for lunch and dinner!
