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?

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.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
