Ahhhhhhhhh Bali .. . ...I've been there a few times - just spectacular. It was years before gluten-free so no specific tips I'm afraid.

But if you're staying at an east-side resort, I'd bet it'll be pretty easy.

Good luck tho, and have a great time.

<ahhhhhhhhhhhhh Bali . ....>

Celiac 1st diagnosed as a toddler, in the 60s. Docs then, between bloodletting & leech-tending, said "he'll grow out of it" & I was back on gluten & mostly fine for 30yrs.

Gluten-free since 12-03

Dairy-free since 10-04

Soy-free since 5-07

IF your 5 year old likes fruit, she will be able to try some of the best in the world like mangosteen, duku, sweet white guava and salak.

There are plenty of rice dishes and rice noodles too although they may have to tone down the spices for her.

Good luck and have a great trip

I am new to all of this, just being diagnosed and I am getting married in a few weeks and going to Bali as well for our honeymoon. Did you receive any responses or help with your question? Can you pass any of it on to me? Thank you!

Hi there Lynne,

I am new to this forum, Just joined a couple of minutes ago.

I know that this posting is about 3-4 months behind. I read with interest on your plight before such a trip, given the circumstances. I just have to add my 2 cents worth. May come in useful for future trip to Indonesia.

In Bali (Indonesia), it is not difficult to have gluten free meals. The important part is to ask for it during ordering, and making very sure that the restaurant staff understood the request.

Do not be bashful or shy in asking. Balinese are traditionally very helpful and kind.

Do tell me how was your holiday in Bali. Enjoyed the great food over there? I bet you did !!

Cheers ... Giovanni John B)

Hi Kerry,

I wrote a reply earlier on but was removed. Probably violated some of the board rules.

Anyway, Bali is very exposed to the international community. As such, the Balinese are quite informed and will provide you with Gluten-Free foods. However, You have to let the restaurant staff know and more importantly, you have to make sure that they understand your request.

Have a great holiday in Bali and enjoy the food and sun there ... and have a swell HoneyMoon !!

Good Lucks and Cheers ... B)
