You should! I'll take notes and give you the full scoop when I get back. (Can't wait to go to the Le Creuset outlet there!)

Have a great trip Jen. Post plenty of photo's so I can see how Santa Rosa Island is now a Metropolis instead of just sand surrounded by water. I also want to see photo's of this huge mall in Destin. Glad that you are going to really enjoy this vacation and that you are going to be able to eat safely.

Thanks Jen :lol:

I have heard of Ft. Walton Beach, some of my family lived/vacationed there over the years, so that helps to have as a reference point.

Have a great time :)

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.
