Yosemite, Mariposa, Mammoth, Tahoe

8 posts in this topic

Hello :)

My cute boyfriend is taking me to Yosemite next week and we will be staying in Mariposa, Mammoth - and Tahoe on the way.

Does anyone have any experience with these places that they could share? I'd love any info you could offer! :)

We'll have a cooler with us - but I'm not sure if the rooms will have kitchens or not. Probably not :rolleyes:

Please help :)

Thanks!!

- Michelle :wub:

Hey Michelle -

I think I saw it here but someone else posted recently that Yosemite is *very* accomodating about gluten free. Aparantly, you can contact any of the restaurants ahead of time to check but they have some gluten free meals and I think you can even buy Amy's frozen meals at their stores, etc. If I find the post, I'll give you a link.

Wish I could come visit you! It would be fun to meet!

Steph

Thanks Steph! :) I wish I could meet you too! :)

Okay, talked to boyfriend - looks like there will be no microwave in the room. That sucks because I love Amy's stuff!

*AND* we will be going to San Francisco on the way instead of Tahoe. Any suggestions there?

Thanks!!

Mammoth's got a sushi place near the movie theater's that has sushi that's safe (minus the soy sauce, of course). And they've got a regular grocery store and all that...

In SF you have to go to Roys, I don't think you even need to call ahead because they are so accomidating. ONe time they kept bringing out free appetizers until they found one that I could eat (strawberries). Google Roys san francisco and call ahead because it is a very busy restaruant.

Michelle,

I am going to Yosemite next week also! They will have plently of gluten free food available at the Yosemite Lodge (we will be there Monday for dinner), at Curry Village Buffet (we are planning on Tuesday for dinner) and then we are planning lunch at the Food Court on Wednesday. They like to know about a day ahead of time where you will eat, so thay can have lots of gluten-free choices for you. I am so excited about the stay. I am waiting for a return phone call from the head food service manager at Curry Village and I will tell him that more gluten-free people will be heading there way! I'll also ask if I can pass on the phone numbers to you, so you can talk with them directly.

God bless,

Mariann

i went to Yosemite last summer..there was this deli and they gave me turkey slices with a salad and chips

are you going to Lake Tahoe? If so, theres like a million restaurants, especially on the strip, so its easy to find gluten-free food there too.

Yosemite is amazing, I was just there for one day. A little advice, don't go on the hiking trails, i went on the 1 mile hiking trail and it was straight uphill the whole time.. =( took a hour..there aren't as many waterfalls in yosemite as i hear there were decades ago. a lot of them dried up but its an awesome place to visit..

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
