I May Be In Love With A Grillmaster...

8 posts in this topic

At Hy Vee today, Shane the Grillmaster was making the most wonderful smelling sandwiches outside. I decided to see if maybe, maybe I could eat it. So I asked to see the bottle of seasoning, and was so bummed to see it listed wheat and barley. So I said never mind. And then he said he could make me a ribeye with a different seasoning that was gluten free. :) I hesitated, but I was starving, so said ok. And THEN he OFFERS to clean the grill and the tongs, just for me! How cool is that! I always hesitate to ask cuz I don't want to annoy anyone.

So turns out Shane the Grillmaster did a presentation on gluen free food at college, and learned all about Celiac Disease, he could not have been more accomodating.

And he charged me $1 less since I didn't want a bun.

And the ribeye was scrumptious!!! :)

Was going to ask if he was cute but who cares - if he cooks and understands gluten-free! :D

I find that HyVee has many employees who have some understanding of gluten-free. I think because they have tried to be a supplier of gluten-free food. The one I go to in Overland Park, KS has more gluten-free speciality stuff than the WF.

Very cool. :)

Sounds delish!!!!!

I am not familiar with Hy Vee (I live in NY state)

but if you meet ANY guy who can cook, LISTEN to you, fulfill your needs, and you ATE WELL and safely? well, honey, you just hit the mother lode. Who needs a bun if you have all that?

Congrats on having a stellar day!!! :D

Yes, he was cute. But he was also about 22 and I am chasing 40 and happily married so...

;)

But it made my day to not only be able to eat prepared food, but to have someone go the extra mile to make it safe for me, without even asking!

The Hy Vee here has a pretty decent gluten-free section, and the celiac support group is headed by the Hy Vee dietician, so they are pretty helpful. But usually the cooks in the deli there are clueless, and it is always torture walking through smelling all the delicious things I can't eat! Thanks to Shane, now I have somewhere to go all summer long!

    • Hi everyone! I'm feeling very frustrated. I have been dealing with GI upset, bloating, very painful gas(that is hard to release), alternating from constipation to diarrhea for a long time now:(... my symptoms seem to be getting worse. Sometimes I get painful spasms located on my upper right quadrant of my stomach and low grade fever. I recently went to a GI doctor and he put me on a lactose free diet. He said I might be lactose intolerant and may have IBS. He did not think I would have celiac. I did relatively well on the lactose free diet for 2weeks.This diet alleviated some of my gas discomfort. Also, he had me get blood work for celiac, ulcerative colitis and H pylori. My bloodwork was positive for celiac disease. The antibody TTG was high 36.6, which is specific for celiac. My C-reactive protein was high as well 13.4--Norm is 2-7(C-reactive protein checks for inflammation anywhere in the body). They called me and told me I had to get an upper endoscopy, which biopsy showed up normal. So should I just leave it like that, or go to a different doctor and get a different opinion? I'm just wondering why TTG antibody-A  was elevated. I'm so frustrated and I really don't want my symptoms to get worse... is there a lot of false negative biopsy? What should I do:(??? Should I just give up...
    • It's all very frustrating.  I had the skin prick tests done last year and they told me I had no allergies, but I have reactions all the time, such as itching, watery, runny, itchy eyes, digestive issues, stomach cramps, IBS-type symptoms,  mental fogginess, etc.   I had blood tests done by a naturopath a few years ago and my worst food intolerance was wheat/gluten by far.  The naturopath found several other reactive foods but said most of them were mild compared to my reaction to gluten.  I looked online at the ingredients for both products, but it's confusing, the main ingredients shared by these two products were brown rice flour and potato starch.  I've used brown rice in baking with no problems, it could be the potato starch, which I don't often use, but I don't have any reaction to eating real potatoes.  
    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
