  1. We don't have uptons in Hawaii but do have The Jackfruit Company (by Global Village Fruit, Inc.) which Ive never had a problem with. Dont get it often since we grow our own. Tried one other companies too with no problem.
  2. avocados have high oil content, especially when freshly harvested this time of year. That will push things through faster than the body can digest them-- system is messe
  3. If you talk to chef Eric at Fleetwoods on front St they also prepare great gluten-free meals. Bistro Cassanova has hand made gluten-free noodles and an excellent ceasers salad -- minus croutons of course.
  4. its not like smoking or dieting, if you cheat with celiac, you get sick. sometimes very sick. If you have pizza it better be a gluten free one otherwise you will suffer from the throat problem or in my case severe cramps. good luck
  5. Ifyour using local agricultural products check into sare.org and your state dept of ag. You can also check grants.gov to see the types of projects that are available. GOOD LUCK
  6. I would talk directly to the executive chef. Generally a place of that caliber would know a thing or two about celiac but its usually best to gauge what the chef knows. They will make sure the staff knows to watch out for you. Always good to re-enforce the things you cant have on your food like soy sauce & flour thickeners. Some places use pre-mixed roux and other sauces and even the chef does not always realize whats in it. Good luck
  7. I think there are 3 types but not sure of the details. you might be able to order things you need or get seeds to grow your own veggies. There are a number of veggiews form south india like bitter melon which are used to control blood sugar. many things are geared towards individual problems like diabetes. good luck
  8. Those who follow ayurvedic medicine in South india are about 70% vegetarian and the remainder are vegan. They use a fruit called kokum (Garcinia indica) related to mangosteen to help with detox. They also use many unusual vegetables not often found in other countries. The diets use a lot of moringa, okra, amaranth, chick pea flour (Chana Besam) and small red shallots as well as dal/split peas and beans. If there is an Indian area in your town you might check to see what they have.
  9. Never did have burning when I was first diagnosed by endoscopic exam about 12 years ago but my testosterone level was literally wiped out. Other basic hormones where dangerously ow and had to go on replacement therapy. You might want to have your levels check as a precaution. Not sure if the burning could be related but it might be possible. Good luck.
  10. i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have gluten-free options on the menu. Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive. excellent but very expensive. Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well. We did find many options at both Oahu whole foods -- mostly with tofu. the only thing there is to be aware of cross contamination with things next to it. they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae spoons and tongs i found more at down to earth in peal city than by University ave
  11. Hi, I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck
  12. My wife has been using Bob's and another one we get in hawaii which she is out of. Sorry I cant remember the name but if its 100% almond then no problem. Im highly sensitive to gluten and never had problems. Oh its the King Arther almond flour which she likes best.
  13. have a great trip!
  14. Any time, Have a great trip
