Hi Hacilar - I am from Seattle, WA. Good to know that there are at least two of us in WA that have this problem ;) How long have you been at this and how are you getting along? I've only been "confirmed" since June of this year, so I have some mental adjusting to this to do yet.

We are in South King County just north of Tacoma. There are several from the Evergreen State here. :)

As my tag implies, I am indeed a Seattelite in Ballard, WA. Please, please, please contact me with any and all news re: gluten free in this town. The Flying Apron is an abomination in my opinion. Impromptu is wonderful but pricey. PF Changs - good but not for more than once a month. I recently was in Portland and was amazed at the choices available. It's not that I eat out every night, but when we do go out, I want to eat. You had to see the gluten-free menu Red Robin presented to me yesterday. The entire front page was a disclaimer. I left, telling the befuddled waiter that I was going to get sick if I ate in his restaurant. I'd really love to have someone locally who can help me navigate these waters, so message me! I was finally diagnosed in March via a genetic test. I had been sick since childhood, but no-one had ever put all of the pieces together. Hope to hear from you.

Karen, in Lovely Ballard

Karen - sorry I can't help with the restaurant question. I only eat out at the local health food store deli and Outback (very occasionally). You might want to take a trip to Kent to try out Haley's Corner bakery. I think their stuff is way better than the Flying Apron.

I like the stuff at Flying Apron in Fremont. (The packaged stuff in the store isn't as good, imho. But the fresh stuff, including just going their for lunch, is good.)

There's Pizza Pi in the u-district (the soy cheese isn't very good, but the rest of it's fine ;) ).

There's Chaco Canyon Cafe between Fremont and the U-District.

There's DaVinci's bakery (I don't know the neighborhood), which I don't like as much as Flying Apron myself, which mostly demonstrates that you just have to figure out what *you* like, since gluten-free foods can be so different.

There's Sunlight Cafe just west of Ravenna that has a number of options.

I like the sushi options at Rolls & Rolls Sushi Plus in Bellevue.

I haven't been to Cafe Flora, but I hear it's good, if expensive.

There's regularly a few things I get at Thai Ginger, one in Bellevue, Redmond, or Seattle.

There's a Pizza Works in Bothell.

I hear Portage Bay Cafe has gluten-free options as well.

And there's Sunny Valley Wheat Free in Maple Valley, which I haven't been to yet.

Of course, there's often a number of gluten-free options at the Whole Foods hot bar too. ;) (The one in Ravenna is my favorite, the one near REI is good too.)

The stuff at Haley's Corner in Kent is good too.

Z'Tejas has a gluten free menu as well, and I've enjoyed a couple of meals there.

Remember that a lot of places don't necessarily have "gluten free menus" but may still know about gluten and can help you - at least, this can be the case in small places that are picky about their ingredients.

Madame K's in Ballard offers a gluten-free rice tortillia crust pizza and some gluten free pasta. (I haven't been in a long time so you may want to call and confirm they still have it). Garlic Jim's in Mukilteo on Mukilteo Speedway has a gluten free pizza crust. Manna Mills health food store in Montlake Terrace has a huge selection of gluten-free stuff, including rolls, doughnuts, pastas, crackers, cookies, etc.

I am newly diagnosed and new to the board of course, :D I live in Mill Creek.

I am only into week three of figuring this all out so any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi neighbor! Central Market has a lot of gluten-free stuff. Also Tru Health in Bothell. The owner has celiac. They are very good to special order things if they don't have them in stock.

I like some of the stuff from Flying Apron. And shame on Central Market for no longer carrying their stuff! Daughter liked the triangular scones and the round berry pastries. Also the cupcakes. More recently we went to PCC in Edmonds. I got her some kind of apricot pastry and she liked it all but the apricots on the top. Got 3 other things that were different than what they used to sell at Central Market, but no report back on those yet.

We have ordered birthday cakes from there several times. They are crumbly, but... We do have additional food allergies and they are the only thing that fit our diet. I couldn't make any better myself. I don't normally like or eat cake, but I do like those. We have only ever gotten the chocolate. Once with mint frosting. I think that was a mistake! But it was good.

I have not actually been to the bakery, but my parents have and they brought us back some stuff. A couple of pizzas. I loved them. Daughter hated. Some sort of thing that I thought would be a cookie, but it was thick and hard. Not so good. And a loaf of bread that was like a brick. They have bought the cinnamon rolls and said they were good but very crumbly.

Hello All,

I live on the Kipsap Peninsula, and have not yet been diagnosed. My mom has had some tests come back positive, and since doing all my follow up work, I am amazed with all the things that could be explained that I have experienced. My local doctors blow! I have had to re-schedule an appt. twice due to thier neglegence. Could anyone recommend a good doctor that I could visit and skip all the back-country practitioners out here in no-man's land? I am sooooo frustrated right now. I have been seen by incompetent doctors starting in 1990! when I was in the Navy. I managed to escape from the Navy with the loss of only one organ! (Appendectomy) Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. My mom did give me the info on the tests I need......... I will rant more if someone out there is interested! no need to bore most of you with the details, just be assured I have been miserable just like many of you.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Lfortson, I assume you are on the gluten-free diet?  So no wheat, rye or barley?  That's good, but there are about 10% of celiacs who react to oats also.  So you might want to get rid of oats for several months and see if things improve. Another somewhat common food issue is dairy.  Some people can't digest lactose (cow milk sugar), and some can't digest casein (cow milk protein).  So it might help to eliminate all dairy for several months also.  Almond milk is a possible substitute
    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.
