Thanksgiving dinners take 18 hours to prepare.  They are consumed in 12 minutes.  Half-times take 12 minutes.  This is not a coincidence.  - Emma Bombeck

I'm over in Blue Springs, just SouthEast of the big city and have had an allergy to Gluten all my life, but only found out about two years ago what I was trying to fight. I've learned alot in this time and so if you need anything, please don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Hi everyone! I live in Shawnee and am also newly diagnosed (3 months) and am dying to find some other people in my same situation! I'm struggling to find places to eat out, where the best places to do grocery shopping are, hidden gluten-free gems, and people to talk with in general! Do any of you go to a support group or what is the best way you've found to manage a gluten-free lifestyle?

If you have a Hy-Vee in your area, most of them have newly expanded their Health Market sections, complete with a Gluten-Free section. I live just a few miles north of downtown K.C., and the Hy-Vee I shop at is great. They carry a very full line of Bob's Red Mill gluten-free flours and mixes, Pamela's baking mixes, lots of cookies and breads (including Udi's, which is the best pre-made gluten-free bread you can get), crackers, pastas, soups and gravy mixes all gluten-free, and really a lot of stuff I wouldn't have time to list. Although the prices can get pretty high is you are purchasing too many pre-made items. Best to buy the flours and learn how to make your own. There are tons of other great gluten-free blogs (Gluten Free Goddess, Gluten Free Mommy, Gluten Free Cooking School...just a few of my faves) from where I've really learned to bake some great muffins, cakes, casseroles, etc. Even my husband will eat some of these things, and he thinks going gluten-free is a waste of time. :-) I don't have Celiac, but I do have a very sensitive digestive system (blood type AB, we are complicated) and found that switching to a gluten-free lifestyle really helped a lot...AND I lost weight.

Try (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) for purchasing Bob's Red Mill and other great gluten-free flours and mixes in bulk at discount prices...Amazon offers free shipping for orders over $25. I believe this how some of the serious bakers can really afford to do all the gluten-free treats and breads.

I would also be interested in a support/meet-up group. Has anyone tried searching the MeetUp groups? Or maybe put out a Craigslist ad to try and get one together on your side of the city.

My favorites are Whole Foods (the one on 91st and Metcalf seems more gluten-friendly) and Hyvee. Their new gluten-free section is amazing. Walmart brand stuff also will say "naturally gluten free" on it most of the time. So helpful!

Where do you go?

I live by you! I usually go to the WF on 119 th just for bread. I go to Hy Vee on Stateline or 135 th & Antioch for most stuff. Target, Walmart & Hen House have a few things like pasta to grab while I'm there.

I just saw that Minsky's is doing gluten-free pizza but I haven't quizzed them yet on topping procedures.
