Anyone In Md Or East Coast?

Recommended Posts

I'm 22, and not recently diagnosed at all! Been diagnosed for about 20 years now.

I live in Southern Pennsylvania, but find myself often in South Jersey where I grew up (in Washington Township). I'm always looking for new friends, not to mention people to meet and talk to who understand the plight of eating gluten free :)

Hey Samantha! I just moved from Deptford, NJ to the Maryland area, and my parents live in south-central PA. Are you more toward Philly?

Hey everyone!

"Home" for me is Gettysburg, PA, I work in Howard County, MD, I go to school in Philadelphia, and I'm moving to New Jersey soon. So yep, I've got Maryland and the East Coast covered! :)

I'm 23, enjoy reading, horseback riding, horses and animals in general. I work for a horse magazine.

Kaiti - do you go to school in Frederick? I'm pretty familiar with Frederick - I drive through there to get to work and I sometimes go there to shop, etc. (b/c there is no civilization around me!) In fact, I'm going there to see a movie tomorrow :D

Hi there. I live 20 minutes North of Philadelphia and about 20 minutes from Trenton. So I've got those 2 states covered. My 2 stepcousins and Aunt love to ride horses. They have 2 and do a show every weekend it seems. My Aunt also shoots all the shows and then has a website business where people can buy her photos. Here is her link if you're interested or have run across her in shows http://www.sheriwheeler.ifp3.com/

Philadelphia and the New Jersey area has a lot to offer for gluten-free people. If you have any questions just let me know!

Oh wow, how cool! Where does your Aunt live? I'm wondering if I've seen her at some shows before. I was looking at her website, but didn't see a location. You can PM me if you prefer.

(By the way, since my quote post was originally made in 9/05, I have moved to New Jersey, and recently back to Maryland, now in Frederick since Jan of this year. Time flies...)

I live in Marshall, VA. It's about 45 min. west of D.C. and really not too far from those who live in Fairfax :) I am new to this site and to the Celiac life and would like to know of places to eat out! I feel so alone in this!

My parents live in Marshall, VA, and I go up there to visit fairly often. While I don't eat out anymore (too many other intolerances), the IGA in town has a fairly good gluten-free selection, as does Bloom. IGA used to have even more products, when I was first diagnosed, but they do take special requests/orders.

When I was still eating out, I went to the Outback in Warrenton, Fairfax, and Centreville, never having a problem at any of them. There's also a Bonefish in Gainesville, which has a gluten-free menu, but I got sick from that one.

No way! I wonder if I know them ;) We've only lived here for 6 years this Dec. though :)

I have noticed that IGA does carry a good amount of specialties but they are expensive!!!! Bloom has some stuff too but I still find myself going to Whole Foods to get a bunch of stuff to suppliment. I can't find everything I want/need around here.

The Outback recommendations are great! Thank you :) I've never been to Bonefish before, all seafood huh? It's nice to "meet" you :)

Yeah, it's a small world! My parents have lived there about 7 or 8 years now, I guess. It would be funny if you knew them!

IGA *is* expensive. I buy certain things there when I'm up that way, but I still do a lot of shopping at the Whole Foods in Fairfax.

I hope the Outbacks work for you; I got glutened horribly by one down here where I live, but I was okay with the ones up in that area. I would just be very clear with your needs and try to go during an off time.

Bonefish had great food--it's mostly seafood, and it's a bit pricey, but it's good. However, since I got sick there, I haven't been back. This was shortly after they opened, so hopefully they are better with the gluten-free options now.
