East Orange, Nj-where To Eat?


Recommended Posts

Next month I will have to be in East Orange, NJ with my husband for a few days. I am very apprehensive because I have never been to this area of the country before and have no idea what restaurants will be willing to prepare gluten-free meals for me or have any idea what I'm talking about when ordering. We will be staying near the Veterans Administration Medical Center and I'm not sure whether we will have a rental car or have to take taxis either.

Can anyone offer any help or suggestions? New Experience for me!

I posted a private message to you.

Deb Midge (I am from that area in NJ)

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

Thanks for the help guys. The idea of this trip makes me very nervous. It's my first trip since going gluten-free and I really don't want to end up sick if I can help it.

Midge, did you post that message here or through email. It isn't appearing in my messages on this board.

Thanks, Stephanie
