SnoCoCeliac Meeting - Bothell, WA

Event details

Hello All:

The SnoCoCeliac Support group will reconvene on Tuesday, November 8 at 7pm in

a NEW, QUIETER LOCATION. After almost a month of negations with Group Health,

I'm pleased to announce that we have a meeting room at the Northshore

(Bothell) Group Health Clinic. I will meet with the Clinic Adminstrator on Thursday

to see the actual room and request additional furniture. So I will send you

another email after that meeting to tell you exactly where we will meet in that

Northshore GHC Clinic. Meanwhile I can give you directions to the clinic:

Northshore Medical Center

11913 N.E. 195th St.

Bothell, WA 98011



>From 1-405, take the Beardslee Blvd. exit.

Turn east onto N.E. 195th St.

Continue to the second stoplight.

The medical center is on the right.


Take I-5 North to 145th Street Exit.

Head east on 145th Street until you reach the Lake City Way/Bothell Way


Turn left (north) onto Bothell Way.

Go 5.6 mi into the junction of Bothell-Everett Highway, Main Street and

Bothell Way.

Go onto Main Street and go 0.3 mi.

Main Street becomes Beardslee Blvd.

Go 0.6 mi on Beardslee until it becomes 112th Ave. NE.

Go 0.2 mi on 112th NE until you reach 195th St.

Turn right on NE 195th and go 0.6 mi to the clinic at 11913 NE 195th St. on

the right.

As mentioned, I'll give you specific directions to our meeting room after my

meeting with the clinic administrator on Thursday. Since we will meet at 7pm,

after clinic hours, a security guard will let us in the clinic. Nevertheless,

a closed clinic will be QUIET.


This month we will discuss "Living and Eating with Non-Celiacs: How to

Coexist without Contamination". Let us consider questions such as: How do you

prevent cross-contamination in your kitchen where non-celiac family members or

housemates also prepare gluten-containing foods? Do you attend non-celiac parties

or dinners with friends? How do you ascertain whether there will be safe foods

for you there? How do you explain your food restrictions to non-celiacs about

your eating restrictions? How do you explain celiac disease to non-celiacs?

How do you tell your family members or friends that you're having food

intolerance reactions and don't feel well enough to attend social functions? How long

after your celiac disease diagnosis did you eat out with non-celiacs? Did you stick to

celiac friendly restaurants or did you request 'safe' food in non-celiac

restaurant? What would you tell a newly diagnosed celiac about eating/living with



Sandy Lasley will bring ALPSNACK (www.alpsnack.com) gluten and dairy free

snack bar samples for your enjoyment at our next meeting. THANKS IN ADVANCE,


Let us also consider having a holiday cookie exchange with recipes (or

ingredient lists) at the December SnoCoCeliac meeting? Remember several of us have

casein and soy or other food intolerances. So we would like that ingredient

list prominently displayed beside each batch of 1-2 dozen cookies. Ingredients

like 'margarine', 'shortening' or 'milk' should specifically say whether the

margarine or shortening is dairy or soy free and whether nondairy milks can be

substituted in the recipe. We assume you all will bring GLUTEN FREE recipes. LOL

I'll send another email later this week before our meeting on Tuesday,

November 8 with more details about our meeting location. I am looking forward to a

QUIET room in a more centrally located clinic for all our members. I'm also

happy to have another celiac support group meet at a Group Health Facility.

Hoping to see you next week
