I live in Burlington County, too! I have been to the Whole Foods in L'ville--it is huge. I normally go to the one in Marlton--it's smaller, but they're doing renovations on it now.

I"m actually finding that everything I need I can get at Wegmans. A new one opened up in Mt Laurel a few months ago, and it's great! I even get my hair and skin care products there. I love their produce dept--lots of organic.

I'll be there tonight! :D

I've been there too, but have only found a small selection. I have a friend with celiac who offered to go there with me to show me where everything is, so I'm going to take her up on that.

I haven't been concerned about beauty products, mostly because I don't know what to look for! I've given up on that for now. Anyone know where there's a GOOD COMPREHENSIVE list of what's ok and what to avoid specifically in beauty products?

Yeah Jersey!

I'm living in Deptford right now. I see a nutrionist in Moorestown and always visit the Wegman's there, which is literally across the street! I swear, everytime I go to that Wegmans, I meet someone with Celiac and end up having a 20 minute conversation!

Ha--My GI is right around the corner--on Midlantic Dr! My GP is down the street--where Main St. meets Marter Ave. I only live 15 minutes up Rte 295 from there. Small world :D

I'll be at Wegman's either tomorrow afternoon or Sunday. Have to get my organic bananas :lol:

BTW, my husband works in Moorestown :)

Mythreesuns--check out the "Natural Marketplace" section the next time you're at Wegman's. They have tons of things for us. I don't eat much processed foods, but I get my Spectrum Organic Shortening, Ener-g Potato Starch and my Zia and California Baby stuff there. They also carry Badger Balm--great lip products and the whole line is gluten-free!

Though I don't use them, I've seen Glutino, Bob's Red Mill, Pamelas, Gluten Free Pantry, Amy's, and many other brands there.

We should all get together sometime!

Or even better, you all can come eat at the Ouback in Deptford (where I work) and request me as your server and I will personally make sure your meal is prepared properly! Beware though, I will probably deliver your Chocolate Thunder to the table with a big bite out of it ;)

Yes, Union NJ.

I know Edison/Metuchen/Woodbridge area somewhat. I sometimes go to Woodbridge Center or Menlo Park. I am trying to get Whole Foods to put a location in the Clark area as there are none in all of Union and Middlesex counties. Woodbridge/Edison would be too close to Wegman's.


Husband has Celiac Disease and

Husband misdiagnosed for 27 yrs -

The misdiagnosis was: IBS or colitis

Mis-diagnosed from 1977 to 2003 by various gastros including one of the largest,

most prestigious medical groups in northern NJ which constantly advertises themselves as

being the "best." This GI told him it was "all in his head."

Serious Depressive state ensued

Finally Diagnosed with celiac disease in 2003

Other food sensitivities: almost all fruits, vegetables, spices, eggs, nuts, yeast, fried foods, roughage, soy.

Needs to gain back at least 25 lbs. of the 40 lbs pounds he lost - lost a great amout of body fat and muscle

Developed neuropathy in 2005

Now has lymphadema 2006It is my opinion that his subsequent disorders could have been avoided had he been diagnosed sooner by any of the dozen or so doctors he saw between 1977 to 2003

Isn't there a Whole Foods up there by Westfield? I went there one time. Now I go to the one in Princeton.

It's pretty close to Wild Oats.

I live by Menlo Park. I go to those malls all the time! Yeah! We should get together sometime. I like Outback.

Whole Foods is in Millburn

Trader Joe is in Westfield and it's a tiny store and I was not impressed.

Hi everyone! I'm recently diagnosed and live in Yardley, PA (just across the Delaware from Trenton). I work in Middlesex County, though, so I frequent the Whole Foods on Rte 1 in L-ville. It's been a dream come true for me. My hematologist & GI are in Langhorne, PA. There's a great Italian restaurant in Yardley's Big Oak Shopping Center called Carlucchi's. They have many gluten-free choices on their menu and are willing to accomodate requests. If you're ever up this way, it's worth a stop.

ANyway, it's nice to know that I'm not alone. If you ever do plan a night at Outback, count me in. I've never been there, but now that I know they're celiac-friendly I really want to check them out!

Regards! :)

I live in Maryland wit my almost 18 year old son (who doesn't need me anymore - so you might as well say I live alone).

I have relatives that live in Hamilton, Ewing and Lawrenceville. I only get to visit them about once a year, but they take me all over the place to buy gluten free food. They take me to Wegman's, a small health food store that has a lot of gluten free stuff, and a farmer's market that has a gluten free store (The owner's wife has Celiac). This area of New Jersey as so much to offer us. :)

Between my relatives and you guys in NJ, you're making me wonder why I'm still here in MD by myself.

P.S. Charlie Brown's has a gluten free menu!

Certainly I am a little late for your Celiacs Picnic as it is 1/3/08 now...however, I am curious if this is a yearly thing as my Wife has Celiacs and I am sure she would love to partacke in such an event as we also live in NJ.
