Hi,

Are there any other adults with gluten sensitivity living in or near the radius of Middletown, New York?

If so, I would love to chat with you and possibly meet you.

Hey Virginia,

I live in Poughkeepsie too! Have you been to the health food store on Rt. 9 in the Bugaboo Creek Plaza? I actually went there this morning, they have some good stuff in there! Well, I just noticed you were from Pok and wanted to say hello!

Wow, I see that we are really spread out. But be that as it may, it is still a great opportunity for us.

I ate at Bugaboo Creek when I was first diagnosed with gluten and the Manager and staff were great at accommodating my dietary needs!

Once in a blue moon we travel out to Poughkeepsie because it is a bit of hike for us. They do have a great comedy club not far from Bugaboo Creek.

I don't know if they still have the monthly celiac support group meetings in Middletown.

I look forward to making a connection with other people with gluten sensitivity and other health related disorders.

Hey local Celiacs! This is my first post on celiac.com, however, I have been gluten free for 6 yrs. I am 23 and live in New Windsor. I went to one or two of those Middletown support group meetings, but my parents really helped me out and we have learned so much along the way. There is probably THE best health food store off 17K in Newburgh (off exit 6 or 7 on 84 depending where you are coming from). The prices at that store are the lowest and they seem to have a great selection.

If any of you need help with anything, please shoot me an email. I work for a liquor distributor and go out to eat a couple times a week. Basically you just need to explain your food allergy to the staff and have them check for you so you will be fine.

Also, for those Celiacs or wheat sensitive people, I just saw in the paper that a completely Gluten free/Wheat free bakery will be opening in Chester soon. Their number is 845-469-1992. I just signed up on their mailing list by calling them.

Hi NYers I haven't been back to the site in awhile. I would love to chat or meet up with you all. My email address is smorecamping@frontiernet.net. I know the 17k healthfood store your right it is the best for me too...also I drove all the way out to Chester from Poughkeepsie today and found out the gluten-free bakery will not be open until June 23. I think my mouth was watering the whole ride hoping I would find a really good bread or more and then nothing. Well I did get on their mailing list. Do you have their web address I'd love to check that out in the meantime? Take care!

Hey Virginia!

Sorry to hear you went all the way to Chester only to find out the bakery isn't open! Good to know it will open the 23rd though.

http://www.gfbreadbasket.com/ is the website...

How old are you and what do you do for a living?

I live in Marlboro, New York. That's on 9W, midway between Mid-Hudson and Newburgh-Beacon bridges. About 45 mins from anything in Poughkeepsie.

Haven't seen any info about a meeting yet, but would be interested.

Wow! what a surprise to hear from everyone and see that we are all over! No problem though. I posted another topic regarding getting together for the Christmas Holiday. So I will extend that offer here as well!

I have a few ideas for what might be fun for the whole group. But first, we need to find a central meeting point. I need to know where people are coming from and how far they are willing to drive. Also, I need to know what day and what weekend is better for you.

Remember only 7 weekends before Christmas Eve!!!!!!!!!

Let's have some fun!

I live in new paltz.

Is there a support group near there?

How about a good doctor or group of doctors near there who are keen to celiac disease and related symptoms?

I have seen too many doctors over the past 11 months and would finally like to feel confident in my doctor(s).

any suggestions?

Johnny

FYI that gluten-free bakery in Chester is closed now. :( Apparently they couldn't keep up with the costs. Just wanted to add that in case any of you read this and were planning a trip out there.

That is sad, Cougar. But there is apparently a baker in Highland that makes gluten-free goodies on Wednesdays (not sure what they do to protect from cross-contamination though) and there is an alternative baker in Kingston that makes gluten-free stuff...

    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.
    Ingredients:
    2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand) 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped 6 ounces chicken meat, browned ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled ½ cup queso fresco, diced 1 medium onion, diced ⅓ cup green onions, minced ¼ cup radishes, sliced 1 tablespoon cooking oil 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving ¼ cup cilantro, chopped 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas  ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.
    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.
    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 
    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.
    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.
    Remove from the oven when tender. 
    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.
    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.
    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.
    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.
    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 
    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.
    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.
    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.
    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.
    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.
    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.
    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.
    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    Celiac.com 06/22/2018 - The rise of food allergies means that many people are avoiding gluten in recent times. In fact, the number of Americans who have stopped eating gluten has tripled in eight years between 2009 and 2017.
    Whatever your rationale for avoiding gluten, whether its celiac disease, a sensitivity to the protein, or any other reason, it can be really hard to find suitable places to eat out. When you’re on holiday in a new and unknown environment, this can be near impossible. As awareness of celiac disease grows around the world, however, more and more cities are opening their doors to gluten-free lifestyles, none more so than the 10 locations on the list below.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, the U.S is a hotbed of gluten-free options, with four cities making the top 10, as well as the Hawaiian island of Maui. Chicago, in particular, is a real haven of gluten-free fare, with 240 coeliac-safe eateries throughout this huge city. The super hip city of Portland also ranks highly on this list, with the capital of counterculture rich in gluten-free cuisine, with San Francisco and Denver also included. Outside of the states, several prominent European capitals also rank very highly on the list, including Prague, the picturesque and historic capital of the Czech Republic, which boasts the best-reviewed restaurants on this list.
    The Irish capital of Dublin, meanwhile, has the most gluten-free establishments, with a huge 330 to choose from, while Amsterdam and Barcelona also feature prominently thanks to their variety of top-notch gluten-free fodder.
    Finally, a special mention must go to Auckland, the sole representative of Australasia in this list, with the largest city in New Zealand rounding out the top 10 thanks to its 180 coeliacsafe eateries.
    The full top ten gluten-free cities are shown in the graphic below:

    Celiac.com 06/21/2018 - Would you buy a house advertised as ‘gluten-free’? Yes, there really is such a house for sale. 
    It seems a Phoenix realtor Mike D’Elena is hoping that his trendy claim will catch the eye of a buyer hungry to avoid gluten, or, at least one with a sense of humor. D’Elena said he crafted the ads as a way to “be funny and to draw attention.” The idea, D’Elena said, is to “make it memorable.” 
    Though D’Elena’s marketing seeks to capitalizes on the gluten-free trend, he knows Celiac disease is a serious health issue for some people. “[W]e’re not here to offend anybody….this is just something we're just trying to do to draw attention and do what's best for our clients," he said. 
    Still, the signs seem to be working. D'elena had fielded six offers within a few days of listing the west Phoenix home.
    "Buying can sometimes be the most stressful thing you do in your entire life so why not have some fun with it," he said. 
    What do you think? Clever? Funny?

    Celiac.com 06/20/2018 - Currently, the only way to manage celiac disease is to eliminate gluten from the diet. That could be set to change as clinical trials begin in Australia for a new vaccine that aims to switch off the immune response to gluten. 
    The trials are set to begin at Australia’s University of the Sunshine Coast Clinical Trials Centre. The vaccine is designed to allow people with celiac disease to consume gluten with no adverse effects. A successful vaccine could be the beginning of the end for the gluten-free diet as the only currently viable treatment for celiac disease. That could be a massive breakthrough for people with celiac disease.
    USC’s Clinical Trials Centre Director Lucas Litewka said trial participants would receive an injection of the vaccine twice a week for seven weeks. The trials will be conducted alongside gastroenterologist Dr. James Daveson, who called the vaccine “a very exciting potential new therapy that has been undergoing clinical trials for several years now.”
    Dr. Daveson said the investigational vaccine might potentially restore gluten tolerance to people with celiac disease.The trial is open to adults between the ages of 18 and 70 who have clinically diagnosed celiac disease, and have followed a strict gluten-free diet for at least 12 months. Anyone interested in participating can go to www.joinourtrials.com.
