I'm From California (walnut Creek) ... Are You?

Recommended Posts

Hello. I've just found out I have Celiacs. Been gluten free for 2 months and already many sympoms have either improved or disappeared. I would love to find friends (male or female) who'd be interested in sometimes cooking and maybe eating together.

I am a single woman, 43 years old, and going to all the trouble of gluten free shopping and cooking just for myself is really boring <_ though I have always followed a healthy lifestyle and eating habits (other than all the gluten I ate). I am absolutely committed to improving my health - in fact I am very excited to now know what I need to do to make myself feel so much better. I just think it could be a lot more fun and I'd feel more motivated with company.

(I have one child whom I suspect might also have gluten issues but not diagnosed yet.)

Hope to hear from someone in my area! Also, I visit my parents (my mom has Celiacs too) who live in Galt, CA which is close to Stockton. So I'd be interested in meeting people from around there too.

Hope to hear from someone!

-Thanks for reading

Hi. I'm in Los Angeles. I was diagnosed about 6 years ago and was in complete denial up until last month when my new dr confirmed the original diagnosis. I've had the monumental task (or so it seems) of clearing all hidden sources of gluten from my household and completely remove lactose as well. Fortunately, I am feeling much better (finally), but I tire of cooking EVERYTHING from complete scratch and shopping for lettuce and tomatoes can be a complete bore. I welcome recipe exchange, shopping and dining out experiences and advice. :)

Hi! I live in Martinez and work in Pleasant Hill. I've been gluten free for six years and have attended numerous conferences all over the country on celiac. Let me know if you'd like to meet up for lunch sometime.

I attended the celiac conference at Stanford last Saturday, and I learned from someone that there's a support group for celiacs in Walnut Creek. If I can find any information on it, I'll let you know.
