  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Hello, I am going to a wedding in Memphis...not familiar with my dining options at all..any suggestions are appreciated!
  3. Taco Bell

    I dont know how true this is and I forgot where I heard it from but I heard that Taco Bell meat has a lot of filler in it and the filler is supposedly oats, so just from hearing that I stay away and like others said there arent many options for us anyhow.
  4. I've been to this restaurant before finding out I had celiac disease and it was always very good. When I went to a celiac disease walk in Long Island, NY, I purchased a raffle ticket and tried to win a $100 gift card to Il Fornetto. And I won!!! So I just went there last night and have only excellent things to say about them. The owner Angelo met with me and spoke with me before, during, and after my dinner and he is so kind and so willing to accomodate gluten free needs. He made sure to oversee everything that was done in the kitchen. He read my Triumph dining cards that I let him borrow in English and Italian and he made copies of them to keep on hand. I will say that the owner does not know everything there is to know about being gluten free but you just ask what the ingredients are and how you want your food prepared and your wish is their command. They are so willing to make everything perfect and healthy for you, no odd looks or inconvenienced feeling. He actually asked me what products he should purchase to make it easier for celiacs to eat more things off the menu and I told him gluten-free pizza dough, breadcrumbs, and pasta. I forgot to mention rice flour to thicken sauces. I liked how he was very interested in learning about where gluten hides and that he wants to purchase products. we received excellent service and did not order dessert, but they brought a delicious fresh fruit tray on the house. My food was cooked to perfection and everything came exactly how I asked for it. I definitely recommend this restaurant. Angelo and his waitstaff make you feel special and offer excellent service. Just remember to explain how you want your food prepared because this restaurant does not yet have gluten free dinner specials and they are still in the learning process. You must understand that before you go. The great part is they are willing to accomodate you 100%. Hopefully he will order some of the things I mentioned because they do have a large pizza and pasta selection that would be worthless to us otherwise. If you go, tell them Michelle that won the gift card recommended you there. =) Thanks! And enjoy! Michelle
  5. ingredients: modified corn starch, tapioca starch, vegetable oil (contains one or more of the following: corn, cottonseed, soybean or sunflower oil), onion powder, potato flour, salt, sugar, torula yeast, hydrolyzed torula yeast proteins, hydrolyzed brewers yeast proteins, monosodium glutamate, garlic powder, paprika, spice extractive flavorings, yellow 5, yellow 6, red 3, blue 1. What is the yeast? Is this gluten free?
  6. I am going to the Dominican Republic and have spoken via email with the management there. This is a resort that I trust and explained my entire celiac disease situation to. I think the food issue will be fine based on their extreme willingness and desire to make my stay excellent. However, a weird situation has come up with alcoholic drinks. I wanted to know what drink mixes they may use if any and they explained they only used concentrated juices, not a store bought mix. They don't use natural juices because they say the concentrated juices make the drinks taste better.Then they told me they would prefer to make my drinks with natural juices to avoid any problems with the concentrated juices. First question: What are they referring to when they say concentrate juice? Do they mean like Tropicana orange juice? Or do they mean something from a can that they add water to? And secondly, are these concentrated juices typically safe?
  7. I went on a celiac walk on Sunday and won a huge basket of baking goods from cherrybrook kitchens: frosting mixes, cake mixes, cookie mix. Has anybody made baked good with this company? Is it good? Any recommendations? Looks like I'll be doing a a whole lot of baking soon!!!! LOL
  8. I went to a celiac walk on Sunday at Little Bay Park in queens. I won a $100 gift card to a wonderful restaurant, il Fornetto, that I used to go to before finding out I had celiac disease. The owner's wife was there and isnt ever at the restaurant so she couldnt give me too much information. I know for sure they do not have a gluten free menu but she told they will accomodate me and cook my food plain/naked if they have to. They want to understand celiac disease and be able to accomodate their customers so they sponsored the walk. i thought that was really nice. So has anyone been there with a gluten free experience? I kind of just want a big broiled lobster with butter, a baked potato and veggies anyway, so that would be fine to eat regardless probably. I'll splurge on lobster on my rare occasion that i won something.
  9. Which products do you find best from these brands: Schar Glutino Glutano Pamela's Ener-G Barkat Gillian's Any other really good brands that ar dedicated gluten free?
  10. Thanks for all the tips..a friend of mine's mother just left for italy and gave me all of her schar products that she had before she left because she spends half the year in italy and the items would go bad..I have yet to find these items on websites..I think it is only sold in Italy and not imported. It is the duo lunch rolls and panini burger buns.
  11. What are your favorite websites to purchase hard to find food brands/items? Also, I want to try some of Schar's products. I hear they are awesome. Where can I buy them retail? Online for decent prices?
  12. Just wanted to share some places I heard about and/or went to... D. Coluccio & Sons Wholesale-Retail Quality italian food products 1218 60th st. Bklyn (cyker Heights Area) - they sell some imported italian gluten free products- Galbusera brand, delicious wafers and crackers I tried so far. Everybody Eats www.everybodyeats-inc.com- all gluten free, going there next week Josef's Bakery - http://www.josefsglutenfree.com/
  13. There are no ingredients listed. I called Brite Smile and they have no clue. They gave me the name of the company that makes it - Discus Dental. I called them and they do not release ingredients for it because of patents and I asked how they could be allowed to do that when people have allergies? and she just kind of hushed me, put me on hold, and then came back and said its gluten free, and I asked her how she found out and she didnt really have an answer. But she did say that the place I bought it from can call them and obtain the ingredients, but I cant directly. It was a very strange experience. ANyone know about tooth whitening pens?
  14. I will be visiting Hartford CT in June for a weekend. So far I've found Carrabba's, Aleia's, and Ion Restaurant (vegetarian) with gluten free menus and I'm hoping knowledgeable waitstaffs. I'm so terrified of being contaminated because I just started this diet a little over a month ago. I also know Aleia's has a gluten free bakery. Any other places to try or look into? Also, are there any good stores to buy gluten-free goodies in case I'm hungry in between. I plan on bringing some snack foods in a cooler and in my bag as well to snack on in between. I'm also bringing my cereal for breakfast and will pick up Lactaid milk. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.
