  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Edmonton

    I was just in Edmonton this past weekend and I was TOTALLY impressed with all of the places where you can get gluten free foods! We ate at OPM... AMAZING!! Joey's and Milestones and there were literally about 5 more places that my friend pointed out to me as we were driving by that had gluten free menus. She had looked them up before I came and I was totally impressed. I liked that OPM and Joey's had gluten free menus done up that had lots of choices and looked nice and professional. I wish I could move those places into Regina!! Just wanted to share for those who are in Edmonton or going there for a trip
  3. Regina Restuarants

    Good to know! Thank you. I won't worry about Teppanyaki. I have not heard of the "Wok Box" but I will defininetly look it up! Is there anything I need to look out for? I have not had any of this type of food since going gluten free and don't know any concerns other than soy sauce. Do they know about celiac disease?
  4. Regina Restuarants

    Just wanted to let fellow Regina people know that there is a new restuarant on the East side called "The Black Pepper" and it is a pasta place...very good! Ate there a week ago and had a really good meat sauce. Also, I talked to the manager at "The Freehouse" and he can prepare gluten free dishes and is very well informed about celiac disease as his aunt has it. I have not eaten there yet but am excited to! Does anyone know of any asian type food resturants in Regina that have gluten free food? I really miss asian food. I have friends going to Teppanyaki this weekend. I looked up the menu and it looks questionable. Does anyone know anything about it?
  5. I have been eating campbell's chicken with wild rice and bean with bacon soups b/c i saw them on a gluten free list quite some time ago and I haven't noticed a reaction to either. Do others eat these ones? I am a little nervous now myself. Courtney
  6. Vancouver - Ubc

    WOW! thank you so much everyone!!! that is a GREAT help!
  7. hello, I have been checking all of the posts about gluten free restaurants in vancouver and am very excited to check out "serenity natural foods deli/cafe." I am moving to Vancouver to go to the University of British Columbia for 2 months this summer and am wondering if anyone knows of a health food store near this area or in Vancouver. Somewhere to get pasta, flour, etc? I am a little nervous about the move and not knowing where to find anything gluten free. I am hoping that there will be something on campus! That would be a nice change! Any comments would be great please!! Thax
  8. just checking to see if my pic worked!
  9. I have read on here many times that all kinds of hershey's chocolate bars are safe, for example: eat more, oh henry, reese's peanut butter cups, and hte list goes on and on. But i wanted to contact hershey's to make sure and when i phoned she said she could mail me the list of gluten-free hershey products. So i was excited... until i got the list yesturday which lists "chipits - semi sweet baking chocolate, hershey chocolate syryp, hershy kisses chocolate, hershy milk choc. bar and milk choc. bar with almonds, and jolly rancher hard candy." This is great to have some things, but now I am wondering if all those other hershey products are not safe. I am wondering if anyone can shed any light on this from what they know or have researched. Thanks
  10. Thanks so much for all of your suggestions! I think that is a great idea to take tea bags in your purse to restuarants... then you dont' have to worry. Sometimes i feel like a "freak" though having to take all my "special things" with me everywhere. Oh well! Better safe than sorry
  11. hi, i have recently found that drinking tea really soothes my stomache. especially peppermint tea... for stomache aches and bloating, really helps. and i am starting to get a little bored with always drinking this flavour, so i was goign to drink some blueberry tea i found in the cupboard. but then i saw that there was flavouring in the tea packet. do you worry about flavour in tea? i cna't think of what could be in tea bags that would have gluten??
  12. i am finding out more and more that having celiac disease really is a lot more than being careful with foods. it is starting to really get me down. i am starting to examine my hair products, lotions, etc and many have wheat listed on the bottles. then others don't bu ti have no clue what most of hte ingredients are, so i don't know if they are safe or not. i don't have the skin condition associated with celiac, but feel i shoudl just be careful and convert to all gluten free products in every aspect of my life. something that i was trying to find out about was clinique oil free mosturizer b/c it is the only one that i can use on my face that doesn't make me break out, and this is the email they sent back: Thank you for taking the time to contact Clinique. Enclosed is the ingredient list that you requested. We trust this will answer your question, however, please do not hesitate to contact us should you require additional information. We appreciate this opportunity to have been of assistance. We look forward to having you visit the Clinique counter or our website in the near future.

  13. i just placed my order and can't wait to get them! i ordered digestive enzymes and probioitcs from NOW! do you find these really make a difference?
  14. thanks so much! i am going to check out the website right now!
  15. just to let you all know that i have been taking digestive enzymes for about 5 days now and was SUPER SICK, but had been really sick before, so i thought they just took time. well, the health food store informed me they were gluten free and it said "wheat free" on the bottle (organika, digestive enzymes). but i made the mistake of trusting that and finally decided to contact the company. turns out there is gluten in them. so don't use! does anyone know a gluten free brand? preferably in canada? same with probiotics.. i was accidentaly using one with gluten in it. errr! i can't find a gluten free one in canada.
