I live in Georgetown, and there's a health food place called The Herbery on Williams Drive, west of IH35. I saw a post on here a while ago that mentioned the place, so I went and checked it out, and it's great! They have so many gluten-free products that even Whole Foods doesn't have, such as Gluten Free Pantry mixes, Pamela's mixes, tons of rice crackers, and every sort of Kinnickinick (sp?) bread/rolls/bagels/donuts/brownies....

I can't wait to pay off my credit card bill so I can go get some goodies! :D

Hello fellow board members!!!

I'm new here, and so excited you mentioned Austin, Texas!!!!

Yes, I live in Ausitn, no I have not heard of the Herbery on Williams Drive!

It sounds great though, I'll have to check it out now!!! :)

Mightymorg have you heard of the Wild Wood Bakery and Art Cafe on 360 it is pretty good, it carries gluten free cookies and brownies, and some entree's.

Send me an email if you'd like:

kimhines@austin.rr.com

I'd love to hear from fellow gluten-free people close to my area!

Hello tiffjake: :)

My name is Kim, I'm brand new to this Celiac board.

I'm thrilled to here that there are people close to the austin area.

I here you live in Killeen.

How far away is that from Austin, if you don't mind me asking??

Have you heard of the WildWood Bakery and ArtCafe?? You probably have since you have been to some meetings in Austin. I would love to meet some more people with Celiac Disease in my area. Anyway, the bakery carries some cookies, brownies, entree's that are gluten free, it's fun to go there sometimes.

I wish there were more meetings in Austin, I hate that there are only 4 a year!!!

If you want email me at kimhines@austin.rr.com,

Nice to know your not alone, :)

Aren't they great there (the herbery)? They really need some better advertising, though, as they're a bit of a secret. Make sure you get one of their punch cards for frequent shoppers, $ off gluten-free food is always a nice thing! They will special order for you too if you have a request. Also, I really recommend a trip to Wild Wood for anyone in the area, I love their hamburger buns and Gluten-free Casein-free ding dongs... oh, I miss TX!!!

Yea for all the replies! :D I have heard about Wild Woods, though I have not taken a look at them yet...it's so great to hear there are other options than paying an arm and a leg at Whole Foods or ordering online!

I'd love to go to the Austin meeting! I'm not officially dx yet (waiting on results)...is that okay? I'd love to be in contact with others having these problems!

And thanks for the heads up about the punch-card at the Herbery! That's fantastic. :)

Hey 'mightymorg'

Wild Wood is nice, it's literally the only place where gluten free bakery items, (brownies, blondies, cookies, ding dongs, entree's, bread, pizza crusts) are sold in Austin. I have had a gluten free sandwich there, it's pretty nice. It's really nice when it's the ONLY place in Austin!!! I've never been to the Herbery, so that will be something I will do very soon!

I don't know what you guys are talking about a punch-card?

Anyways mightymorg feel free to email me if you want anytime kimhines@autin.rr.com. Of course that's fine that your not diagnosed yet. Hopefully they will for you be good results!!! :) The problem with Austin is there are not very many meetings. Only about 4 a year here. But if you feel like this diet is the right thing for you, or if unfortunately your diagnosed with Celiac, then its always nice to know other people so you can give each other the support to get through this disease and learn the diet. So you can write me anytime if you want.

I live in Pflugerville and I love both the herberry and wild wood...wild wood has the most delicious gluten-free Chicken Salad sandwich...I had it just the other day and was in HEAVEN!!! YUMMY!

I go to the herberry to stock up on kinnikinnick...it was so nice to find them and that punch card is a nice thing to have...any kind of saving money is worth it!

Kim,

When you're checking out at the herbery, just ask the person at the counter for a punch-card... they make a mark in it every time you spend $ there, I think it is one punch for every $25 (or maybe it was $15, I can't remember...) and when the card is full, you get a certain amount of $ off your next purchase (again, 15 or 25, just ask them and they'll explain it to you). They also have loads of supplements and stuff like that.

Mightymorg,

The people at the Austin meeting I went to were really nice, a mix of how and when people were diagnosed, too.

Try out the gluten-free cooking class at Central Market, it was cool, like a live cooking show, and you get to eat some of everything they make!

Also, products I've found in AZ that I never saw in TX but are worth mail ordering (in my opinion) manna by anna bread, if you don't want to have to go to wildwood every week to buy more :), 123 gluten free brownies, and cause you're special biscuits and yellow cake. yummy.

Noelle,

Have a chicken salad for me, please!!! I miss wildwood, I used to go there at least once a week when we lived in Georgetown (and about once a month when we were in Killeen.)

Hi Mightymorg....

You'll want to check out alamoceliac.org (it's austin, san antonio and corpus)

also the austin celiac listserve:

http://mylist.net/listinfo/austin-tx-celiac

and if you have any celiac kids we just got a ROCK (raising our celiac kids) group started and that is at

http://www.austinceliackids.com/

There is a meeting Wednesday night for the Alamo Celiac in Austin:

The next meeting of Alamo Celiac, GIG® in Austin is scheduled for April 19, 2006 at 7 p.m. We will be meeting in a different location, the Cambridge Towers.

Cambridge Towers is located at 1801 Lavaca on the southeast corner of Lavaca and Martin Luther King Blvd. (19th St.), directly behind the Texas State History Museum. The meeting room is towards the rear of the foyer, to the right. There is parking on the street and there is a large State parking lot in the back of the Tower, off Colorado Street. Parking is free in State lots and meters after 6:00 pm.

Our topic for the meeting is Gluten-free medications. Lori Prager, pharmacist at People's Pharmacy on North Lamar, will provide a presentation to the group regarding problems that celiacs encounter with medications. If there is no alternative available to a gluten-containing medication, she will explain how that problem can be addressed with compounding. She plans to work up a list of common medication ingredients that contain gluten, to hand out to the attendees at the meeting.

Please bring a gluten free snack to share. It is important that included with each snack is a listing of ingredients. Some of our members need to avoid more than just gluten. If the recipe is either original or has been changed at least 3 times, please bring the recipe. We can publish these recipes in the recipe exchange section of our monthly newsletter.

If you have any questions, please contact Francie Kelley at fkelley@austin.rr.com or

(512) 301-2224. We hope to see you at the meeting.

Do any of y'all have the contact info for the support groups? I'd love to know where they're held, who runs them, etc... :)

Kinnikinnick is my favorite! I order from them online. Also, Wheatsville Coop has "Wheat-free Wednesdays" and offers gluten-free baked goods (cookies, brownies, muffins, cakes, etc). And you don't have to be a coop member to shop there.
