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

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

Carol - PNS is still expensive. I think in general health food is expensive. However, it is handy. They have the Amy's frozen meals. That is great for me for lunches. They are about $4.00. The bread is $5.00 and Amy's Cheese Pizza is $6.50. I love it for the convenience. We are always on the go. It is great to make and know that I will be gluten-free and safe! :D

Good luck!

Hi and Welcome!

We are pretty close. I am from Dousman. Just curious who diagnosed you and what office they are from. Dr. Medhi from Medical Associates diagnosed me from an EGD scope looking for ulcers. I am just curious where other people from Waukesha County are getting a dx.

Thanks!

Angi - I have found I cannot eat the gluten-free breads out there because of yeast or malt flavoring, which is also a no-no for me. I've been experimenting with different flours from the gluten-free breadmaker cookbook by Bette Hagman with limited success so far. Also good is Kinni-Kwik bread/bisquit mix. CP B)

Hi!
I also live in Chippewa Falls WI. We moved here last July and really love it.
I belong to a celiac support group from Minnesota because when we lived there I just renewed my membership and I wanted to keep it up because they have a great newsletter. I was told there is a celiac support group in Bloomer WI which is about 12 miles from here, but I have never gone. I love this website it is very informative. :D
