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..

    • I agree, it's very unlikely she doesn't have celiac disease.  Can you find a local celiac group to get a doctor recommendation from?  They might have the best idea of a local doctor who is familiar with celiac disease.  There is also a doctors sub-section of this forum which might help find one.  http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/forum/6-celiac-disease-doctors/
    • Hi I'm newly diagnosed with coeliacs only 5 days ago so I have had 4 days gluten free , I felt more energised pretty quick but today have gone back to that sluggish feeling lethargic, could this be a withdrawal effect also did anyone have swelling whilst on gluten ?
    • Thank you! I will call and ask for a full panel and see where it leads!!
    • I think the idea of grinding your own at home stems from the thought that flavored coffees might be ground on the same machines.  The grinders in the grocery are not cleaned between uses.  However, I have not found a flavored coffee bean that had gluten, so it's probably not a real concern.  For coffee that comes from a factory ground, I wouldn't worry at all.   Machines would be cleaned between flavors and nothing but coffee could be made on the machines or even in the same building ( everything made would taste/ smell like coffee). if you still have doubts - I went to the International Celiac Disease Symposium a few years back.  This is held every few years in different countries for medical professionals that study and treat Celiac.  They present research, etc.  All food served was gluten-free.  We drank a lot of plain, already ground, coffee!  A lot!   Coffee is not on any lists as a gluten containing food.  Talking legitimate organizations - not some blogger or pseudo- science website.   After all this, if you still doubt that coffee is gluten free...... Then don't drink it!  It leaves more for me!    
    • To answer some of your questions.... Non celiac gluten sensitivity does not cause any damage to the small intestine so that is not the source of the "little holes or bumps".  You need to get her records including the report of the endoscopy to see exactly what it says as well as the pathology report of the biopsies. You should always get medical records anyway & keep a copy for yourself. How many biopsies did he take? There should be a minimum of 4, ideally 6. The small intestine is very vast even in a small child. An adults is the size of a tennis court! That's a whole lot of territory so biopsies can miss damage especially when enough of them are not taken! She has 2 positives on the serum panel. This crap about "weak" positives should be thrown out of the nomenclature! A positive is a positive, weak or not! Her DgP IGG is way over the range and extremely telling. As far as my knowledge goes, there is nothing else that causes a positive DgP IGG other than celiac disease. False positives are really rare and to have 2 false positives would be astronomically rare! You are right & smart that she really does need an official diagnosis! IMHO, keep her on gluten for right now. Get a second opinion pronto & I believe you'll be able to get her a dx based on the 4 out of 5 rule if nothing else. I wouldn't think it's going to take more than a month to get to see another doc for a second opinion. Then you can take her off gluten. Kids heal up really fast, way faster than us old geezers! I'm sure as others  wake up & get on their computers they will be along to voice their knowledge. I am in the eastern time zone & rise before the birds so I was on here early. Hang in there mom! You're doing the right thing!
