What city are you from? Any good Wisconsin gluten-free resources?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I am from Dousman. It is a small town between Milwaukee and Madison. There is a support group Milwaukee Celiac-Sprue Crew. http://www.glutenfreeinfo.com/support/states/wisconsin.htm Here is the link for information on them. I have not been to any meetings as I work most week nights. I do get the quarterly newsletters. There is some helpfull local information. It is for the entire Milwaukee Metro area. If you get a chance to visit The Gluten Free Exchange in Milwaukee, I have heard it is great.

Hope that helps!

Hi Angi!

I live in Chippewa Falls, which is in the northwestern part of the state. My dad lives in Madison though, so I get to visit him and go to whole foods and my newest find, the Silly Yak bakery. I haven't tried anything from the S Y bakery yet, but it looks good!

:rolleyes: Hi;

I am from Virginia, Minnesota...and have been a celaic (diagnosed) for 7 years. My sister lives in Hudson, Wisc. and there is a good bakery across the river in BayPort called Bread Art. It is a regular bakery and has great gluten-free baked goods, although they are not baked in a gluten-free environment.

Is that Bayport MN? I'm not sure I've heard of it. I'll check it out though, it's not far from where I live. And actually my sister lives in Minneapolis so it's right on the way to visit.

Another Wisconsinite reporting in....live in Conover, which is north of Eagle River and just south of the line where Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan come together. It is a resort area and we have long winters. As far as I know there is no support here, so this message board is all I have. It is really great. I have a good health food store whose owner is a celiac and the Pick and Save has some gluten-free products. Also there is a WalMart 45 minutes away who will be having lots of gluten-free products soon. I go to the Janesville/Madison area as often as possible and will be checking our Silly Yak bakery soon. I do like Whole Foods on University Avenue in Madison....their cinnamon rainsin bread is TO DIE FOR. I own a restaurant/tavern and go out to eat occasionally here and a lot when I go to southern Wisconsin. I chose carefully and do not let the fact that I am eating gluten-free get in my way. I am a person who likes challenges in my life and so I look at this as just another one that I can conquer.

Hi Barbara, I PM'd you a while ago about things in Madison. I'm going down to visit my dad the first week in September and I can't wait! I'm bringing a cooler to stock up on all the good stuff that I can't get around here.

Hi everyone!

I'm am from Green Bay, Wisconsin. For the first time last Monday, I went to a support group. The support group meets every month rotating between Green Bay and Appleton. I attended the meeting in Green Bay, which took place at St. Mary's Hospital. It was extremely helpful! It is always reassuring to talk to other people in your same position. Everyone was able to ask any questions that they had, and most of them were answered and discussed. I will definately be attending more meetings!

Mary Mueller, Green Bay

920/435-4861, cmueller@execpc.com

Pam Rourke, DePere

920/339-7867, mrourke@new.rr.com

(Those are the leaders of the support group and contact information! They are both very helpful and nice.)

I also get a lot of information from this message board...everyone is extremely helpful and full of information!

My diet now mainly consists of Grandma Ferdon's food and Amy's TV dinners. Grandma Ferdon's is located in Hayward, Wisconsin (http://grandmaferdons.com/). I order from that website all the time, and I usually receive the package the next day! The food is delicous, and actually tastes like "real" food (haha)! Also, the local grocery stores and a store called U-Bake carries Grandma Ferdon's products, which makes things a lot eaiser! If you haven't tried Grandma Ferdon's products yet, I would reccomend it.

Well that's all for now!

Grandma Ferdon's is awesome isn't it?? I live about an hour from there and have been up to see Julie a couple of times, she really helped me when I was first diagnosed. I thought I died and went to heaven the first time I had one of her cinnamon rolls (fresh out of the oven ;) )

I am going to try to get to the Madison bakery this Sunday. I called them last weekend and they said they have a "try before you buy" every Sunday. They close down Saturday and wash everything down. They then do only gluten-free on Sundays. I am about an hour away from there.

I am pretty excited to check it out. I have yet to have that feeling of "to die for" when I have tried anything gluten-free. :rolleyes:

Yes it is Bayport, Minnesota. Actually I put together a pretty good tapioca bread that has turned out fairly well..If you want I can send it to you. I got the idea from a bread I purchase at Bread Art. Their cookies are wonderful as well as the cinnamon/raisin bread. I think they bake every Tuesday so those days you are sure to get fresh.

I wish I was closer to Madison, it sounds like they have some good bakeries there.

It is great to be able to talk to others with the same thing.

Take care;

jean :)

Frenchiemama---what day are you going to Madison in September? I will be down there in the southern part of the state beginning September 6. I will be driving down that day. On the 7th I have plans for a luncheon with friends, but woudn't it be fun to meet at the bakery face-to-face? If you could meet me on Thursday 9/8 that would be neat. LMKnow.....if not, then hope it could be another time. Barbara

Hi All,

I'm not in your area (northern Wisconsin/northern Minnesota) any more, but I loved Grandma Ferdon's in Hayward. There is a company in Madison that makes great gluten-free veggie burgers that I think are only available in the upper Midwest--I miss the burgers.

Jeany, where can you eat out on the Range? When I'm there all I ever end up doing is eating a salad or baked potato, are there any good gluten-free friendly places to eat out? Does the co-op in Virginia still carry a fair amount of gluten-free foods?

Best to all, wish I was back up there!

Hi fellow 'Sconnies :)

I am from Green Bay as well.

Still getting used to being gluten free - and soy, lactose free.

The Festival grocery stores in Green Bay have a nice selection of gluten-free foods - as well as Woodman's supermarkets - their aisle #18 is Huge !!!!

My son lives a few blocks away from the Whole Foods Market in Madison - I am jealous !!!!

Good to see more Wisconsinites out there - and I look forward to getting to know you all better :)

Hugs, Nancy

PS: Frenchiemama - I LOVE your Frenchies !!! Beautiful dogs. How many do you have ??? Lucky person ;)

Nancy, your son must live near my dad. My dad lives right off University on Stevens St (hope nobody stalks him now! ;) ).

Thanks for the dog compliment! I have three little FB's, and I just adore them. Two females and a male.

Dear Veggf;

Not really any places to eat that are safe in Virginia...You just take your chances..Yes the co-op has a large selection of gluten-free foods...I work there part-time as a buyer and have met a lot of customers that have gluten problems..My other job is at the clinic and it is neat for my co-workers to learn about this disease and try to understand it...Anyone out there close to Minnesota? I feel like I am in the wrong chat room..but you guys were the closest I could find...My sister lives in Hudson, Wisc. and she and her husband have an organic exporting/importing business and sell a lot of tapioca starch, so that is cool to have something in common with their business,, it helps me out :rolleyes: I went on a trip with them to South America 3 years ago and actually saw the tapioca (maniac) plant growing there. It is the best place for celiac people to live, because tapioca is their staple.

Best;

Jean

I live in the Watertown, WI area 6 mos., SW Florida 6 mos. Found a good source of fg food in Watertown, but now find I cannot tolerate anything with yeast. All my good bread recipes contain yeast. Any suggestions? Carol

Hi Carol!

I cannot help you with yeast free bread... But I did want to say hi!!

I am in Dousman. It is about 4 miles south of Oconomowoc. There are a lot of gluten-free items at the new Pick N Save in Oconomowoc. Also, if you get to Milwaukee, there is a Gluten Free Trading Company that has a lot to offer.

Sorry I couldn't help with the bread. Hopefully someone else can or try the store in Milwuakee.

Thanks Angie for the heads up on P N S in Oconomowoc, our local store has a very limited supply, and the stuff at the Health Food store is very expensive. Carol :D

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Sorry  To give you more info I had the endoscopy because I was diagnosed last year with Barretts Esophagus and gastritis. I've been on medication since but still had issues so they went back in to check how everything was going and to make sure the Barretts hadn't turned into anything nasty. I had a celiac blood test in 2014 ( negative) and the endoscopy in 2015 didn't show lymphocytes in the duodenum well that's if he biopsied that. I also had a colonoscopy with this years endo and all of that came back fine - I thought if I was celiac that would be affected also? As far as I know the biopsy only showed lymphocytes (white blood cells?) in the duodenum no damage to the villi but he used many big words that I didn't understand so he could have said more. With the blood test all I know is that I had a blood test for Celiac - I didn't know there were different tests for it. I'm a complete newbie with all this stuff so I just don't get what questions to ask him.  I'm so impatient I just want to know. I have a big family, a husband that is FIFO and I'm a stresser. 
    • Help interpreting biopsy results after gluten-free for 7 months
      Hi there, Just got my follow up biopsy results after being dx with celiac 7 months ago (dx with blood test + biopsy). Could anyone help interpret these new results as the doc wasn't much help... Basically he said good news is it looks like gut has healed up due to gluten-free diet. Bad news is that he has no explanation as to why I still have all of my symptoms.  Any help interpreting the attached results would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Right, usually they do an endoscopy after a positive blood antibody test.  The biopsy confirms the antibody results.  Doing them in the reverse order doesn't hurt anything though.  Sometimes people "fail" the antibody tests but still have gut damage.  Not everybody makes the same antibodies or in the same quantities.  Anyway, you should make sure they are doing the complete celiac antibody panel, not just a ttg test. And don't worry if the celiac tests are positive for gliaden antibodies.  Going gluten-free is an adjustment to your diet. Quite a few people around here have managed to adjust successfully.  It takes some effort, but anything worthwhile does they say.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
