Ne Cola. Sc

Recommended Posts

Are there any support groups in our area? I live outside NE Cola. and going to West Cola. is an hour drive for us. My 13 year old daughter was diagnosed with celiac 5 years ago. Now that we hit the teen years she seems to have more trouble coping. Any Info. would be helpful.

I'd love to talk to you further....i'm still relatively new to this area and am desperately seeking a dr. Was planning to just go to Charlotte but if you have some info i'd love to hear more...

Have a great weekend!

Hey,

There is a support group in West Cola. I don't have the info with me at the moment but will be at home tomarrow night and will pm you. We have not been because its so far away and is geared towards adults. :( Have you tried Earth Fare or Rosewood Market? They may not have everything but between the two we get what we need :D . My daughter will be glad to know shes not the only celiac in all of SC. :lol: She feels like it now.

I thought I was the only celiac in all of SC! HAHA!

COOL, that is great news that there is a group in W Cola & thank you for shooting me the info tomorrow or whenever you can so I can see what's happening. Sorry it tends to focus on adults...bummer! Maybe your daughter could be the pioneer for a teen group??? Just a thought....

Yes, I swing thru Earthfare for the bare essentials! It just gets so expensive....there's a bit of competition in Charlotte so sometimes prices are a bit lower & I have friends who live there so it's a mini vacation for me to get away for the day to shop gluten-free and see my friends :) When you shoot me the support group info, fill me in about Rosewood Market...never heard of it....but then again i'm still learning the area so Go Figure! HA!

Thank you again!

Rosewood has a smaller selection then Earthfare. It is not far from Earth Fare. I might have to check out Charlotte when we go to Carowinds! Is there any place in particular that is really good? And not hard to find(directions not my best virtue)

hey I'm in Columbia too, I had no idea there was a support group here... Could you PM me about it too?

I do a lot of shopping at Earthfare, but yes it gets a bit expensive. I just recently heard of a place called 14 Carrot Whole Foods in Lexington (www.14carrot.net). It looks like it might be a good possibility, although I guess it would be a little out of the way for the NE Cola people! I live closer to the NW side of town.

Hey Sara!

Thanks for posting! So exciting to FINALLY find some other celiacs around here.

I too have heard and actually passed by 14carrots. Haven't been in there yet though. The name alone screams expensive...get it? 14carrots??? 14 carats??? :lol:

Jean:

In Charlotte I like Talley's Green Grocery and they also have an Earthfare (I haven't been to that one though b/c I went to Talley's instead the last time I was up there & b/c I hit the really NICE AND BIG Earthfare in Charleston a few weekends ago). Also, I've heard the SuperTarget out in Morrisville has some gluten-free stuff way less expensive than what we pay for things at EarthFare, Whole Foods, etc. Here's the contact info:

Talley's Green Grocery

1408 East Blvd Ste C

Charlotte, NC 28203

talleys.com

** Talley's has the thing where you can apply for their MVP card thingy like you do at Food Lion, Piggly Wiggly, etc. and you can get things at the sale price.

EarthFare

12235 North Community House Road

Charlotte, NC 28277

I just got my daughter back from dads and told her there is TWO other people in Cola. that have celiac. She got so excited. She wanted to know if you where her age(13) I told her I was pretty sure you weren't. :lol::lol: She said "Thats ok I'll like them anyway." She is such a turkey! I better go finish dinner before she eats all the mac & cheese. :rolleyes:

I have news <_< . I've tried all the numbers with (are you ready?) NO SUCCESS! Apparently everybody else with celiac has been abducted by aliens :blink: So now we know. I did however find an e-mail address for a R.O.C.K group in Lexington. I've e-mailed her already may she can give some info on an adult group.

Here is her info incase you want to try:

Gail Fox

Lexington SC 29072

Maybe the aliens left her :lol:

Ooh! How exciting is this for me?!

I'm 24, live in Columbia, and I've been gluten free for like a month and a half.

I'm getting in on the end of this conversation, but can I get some info if anyone finds a support group that still exists?

And to share my findings - almost everything at El Burrito (Harden St) is gluten free (save the flour tortillas on a burrito). I'm friends with the manager and eat there almost every day. And when I started gluten-free, she was one of the few people who'd ever actually HEARD of gluten. My favorite is the salad with chicken and beans. YUM.

Also, went to Baan Sawan (Thai food - Devine St) on Saturday and had the pad basil- no reaction. Next up to try is the peanut curry...

Welcome ! Well at least we've grown from 1 all the way up to incredible number 4 !!!!(the Sesame Street Count laughs with thunder here) Can you tell we don't have cable? I still haven't heard anything from any of the groups so it might be that you 4 are the only ones in Cola. I was telling Turtle that when it cools down maybe we can get together for a picnic at Finley Park. I have to go take the short man to karate :ph34r: I YA!!

Talk to you guys later

Below is what I posted as a new topic in the event there are any other Cola Celiacs out there interested in becoming a part of our new crew:

"Thus far we've had no luck in locating a support group in the Columbia, SC area....

Sooooo we've decided to create our own little group...."The Cola Crew"!!!

If you live in Columbia, SC &/or the surrounding areas and want to be a part of the crew, please shoot me an e-mail at turtledupree@hotmail.com.

We'll see where this takes us and enjoy one another's support and have FUN!!

Can't wait to hear from you!!!"

I have a huge addiction to Jersey Mike's. Do you know if the meats, cheese, etc is gluten free? We are going to Game Day on Saturday and we always get Jersey Mike's before a game. I was hoping to just get all the "good stuff" and put it on some bread I pick up from Earth Fare. Thanks!

I haven't chanced any sandwich places...do they have a website or something you can check? for example, I know boar's heads meats are all gluten-free, and certain brands of condiments are okay. So theoretically you could get a sub from Publix on your own bread (depending on what type of condiments they use)...but it all depends on how concerned over CC you are.

Personally, I'd be wary. And I'd hate to get sick while tailgating...eww! Let us know how it goes!

Well poo :angry: ! I hardly ever think of cc, but I guess I need to start. At first I was just so concerned with cutting out the obvious! Guess it would be a horrible idea to eat from a place that is covered in bread. I really want to have a good time at the game. Does Earth Fare have a deli or something where I can pick up some lunch or any other other suggestions? Thanks for the advice.

YES! Earthfare has some awesome foods. They have a hot buffet line as well as a salad bar that I believe is up for all three meals. Things seem to be clearly labeled as to what they contain. Again CC is an issue at any buffet line, but if you asked them a question they'd probably know what you were talking about! They also have a deli where they make stuff on the spot for you - I haven't eaten there since going gluten-free but it seems like a good place to start.

good luck
