From Mn To Pensacola, Florida And Back

5 posts in this topic

I am interested in any restaurants absolutely safe for grain free celiac around the route. I might consider visiting one on my way home, maybe. Other than that my family would be interested in organic food restaurants.

I am needing organic nutrition stores in or around Pensacola. I want to be able to buy meats, eggs, and organic vegetables. If you know of organic produce direct from nearby farms ... I would be really glad. My family and I (Seven of us) are traveling. I find it difficult to imagine that I can fit all of the food for a week into our loaded van.

We found a hotel with full kitchen, but I need to pack all of the pans I want.

I have an app for whole foods on my iphone that we've used as we travel. We go to Florida a lot, but never Pensacola. Anyhow, probably like your travel, we now make sure we have a kitchen and know where all the WF's and Outbacks are. I know that's not organic, but my daughter and I can get a steak and potato and they seem pretty aware of gluten free diets.

The thing I love about Florida is it's so easy to get fresh seafood and a salad. Honestly, that's one of the easiest states I've been too. Not that there is necessarily a huge awareness of celiac, but easy to get seafood.

In MN I shop at the co ops and get organic as much as possible, but when we travel I sort of just do the best I can. It doesn't always work as I am now dealing with muscle and joint pain from TG travel, but most trips we (daughter and I) come back in one piece. Good luck on the trip.

Thanks. I figure I might try a restaurant on the way home. I didn't know Outback was a possibility. I am glad for hotels with kitchens. Other than that I have an electric skillet and crock.

Diana,

I also have to say that I ate at PF Changs yesterday with a lot of trepidation (don't know why...just not as plain as Outback I guess) Anyhow, I had zero problems yesterday or today. I will say that I am not sure about eating grain free there. Plus $$$ for 7 people. But maybe dishes can be split? But I would say if you can cook for yourself and feed yourself on the road, that's what I'd do.

I am planning a Montana to Pensacola trip in Feb. I am wondering the same things. We (5 of us) are all gluten free and my 17 year old daughter is very sensitive to cc-ing. I plan to try to get glutinfreeda burritos and pizza rolls to take the place of eating fast food and bag or box salad with gluten-free dressings, cheese and sliced turkey or ham. I think we will travel with cereal and milk (we are not lactose intolerant) mary's gone crackers and cream cheese. Apples and peanut butter. I don't know what else. I am really afraid of restaurants.

    • I already did. Thats how i found the place. Its amazing to actually go to a restraunt again.
    • This is EXACTLY what happens to me. It has twice now and both times was after both glutening episodes but once it was the day after and the other time it was a week and a half. So I'm still not sure if it's related or strange bug bites...

      Did they stop happening when she stopped being glutened? Did you decide they were definitely related? I'm really confused by this and would love to know whether to insecticide my house or....
    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL
