  1. Cravng Gluten!

    I am in the same boat with everyone on here. I am 12 weeks prego and have been craving all kinds of gluten infested foods. I have also been haveing dreams about eating gluten food too. Its weird how alot of us are doing that. But I have a serious problem. I am a picky eater. And i am scared that i am not getting anough nutrients for the baby. I am taking Neevo vitamins everymorning but i am only eating 3 meals a day, and not very big meals bc i havent been hungry. What snacks are yall eating? I am eating eddy's real fruit popsicles, oranges, and probably way too much candy. I am sick of the same meals chicken with italian dressing, and a hamburger patty and hotdogs (no bun of coars) I am lost in a world of gluten! HELP ME PLEASE!
  2. HEY!! I have heard about garden cove but i just havent had time to make it over there. and kroger did have a lot of stuff but it was so $$$$. I go to star market some so get my pancake mix and pizza crust. But i have found that wal-mart deffinitly has the most and the best price. do you go to outback a lot>? i am a regular there. and caraba's and chili's. i have been to landry's some too. they dont have a gluten-free menu but i get grilled shrimp and their house salad with house dressing which is sooo good. and i have not had any problems with it. but thats just about the only places i eat out at. there is a bbq place in athens called lawlers and they know as soon as i walk in to change their gloves and not touch any bread. i get their shredded ham. anyways... i do not know of any support group in this area either. but just having someone from this area to email is a plus!!
  3. THANKS! I am from Athens, neighbors to Huntsville. Anyone from Athens on here with celiac disease? So I have found a lot to eat since becoming gluten-free but I still have my moments when I just want to cry about it. It really stinks to have to eat a plain potato or what-not at a restaurant while everyone else is having pasta's and such. But I would rather be gluten-free than be in pain. I'm always telling people "It could be worse". I am so glad to have joined this forum. I hope that it is very beneficial to me and everyone else. Thanks a bunch!
  4. Hey! I am from Northern Alabama and just diagnosed with Celiac this past August. My aunt who lives here also has it too. And my 5 year old cousin had a positive blood test but negative biopsy saying she will develop celiac eventually. There are no support groups here but would love to start one too. Wish we had a Whole Food Market here. I have been going to Wal-Mart a lot lately. And there is so much gluten-free food there. I get the Van waffles ($1.98 compared to $3.99 at the health food store down the street). But all the Great Valley brand stuff labels gluten-free if it is. I was so excited to see that. But anyways... let me know if you hear of anything else in Alabama that is good to shop for food or vacation.
