  1. Stowe Vermont And Boston

    That sounds like a great idea!!! I am sort of tired of the blank stares when I tell the waiter or kitchen staff that my daughter can't eat gluten. If only more people would more aware of celiac disease, then life for those who eat gluten-free would be easier.
  2. Hi there, My family will be traveling to Stowe Vermont in April. I would like to know of places to eat and/or buy groceries while there. My daughter has celiac and I like to know ahead of time where to eat so that she does not feel as if she is under a spot light. We will be flying into Boston and spenfing a day there also. So any Boston info will be appreciated as well.
  3. Garlic Jim's

    "I can't imagine that it would be safe to eat ANYTHING that came out of a pizzaria if you were extremely sensitive to cross-contamination." I met with the owner of our local Garlic Jim's. He was VERY nice and knowledgeable reagrding CC. He gave me a tour of the premises. He showed me where they store and process their flour for the regular pizzas and where they keep the gluten-free dough. There is also separate counter-top and utensils and sauce is kept in squeez bottles to aviod CC. They apparently tried a variety of crusts before they decided on the one they are currently selling. So I guess that each restaurant uses different gluten-free crusts. We love the crust and my daughter is thrilled to eat pizza again.
  4. Is anyone familiar with "BAJA FRESH- Mexican Grill" I was given a gift card and we have two restaurants here in Miami. The website was not very helpfull with specific ingredients. I emailed them and I am waiting for their response. But I trust you guys more LOL.
  5. Tarpon Springs Florida

    Yes, they are. It's actually a pita bread. I am more interested in finding out about the meat. Do real (not chain) greek rest have gluten in the gyro meat?
  6. Anyone know if Greek gyros are gluten-free? We are going to Tarpon Springs, FL in a few days and would love to have some greek food while there.
  7. Hi there, does anyone know of any restaurants that would have gluten-free food in the tarpon Springs area? My daugther loves gyros but has not had one since she was diagnosed last year. We will be visiting Tarpon Springs next week and are looking for gluten-free greek food.

  9. Gluten Free In Miami, Florida

  10. Is anyone familiar with places to eat in Puerto Rico. Restaurants, health food grocery stores etc. Any ideas will be welcomed.

  12. Starbucks response: We heard that it was too much of a treat, and not a nutritious snack. The KindSnacks bar is replacing it. And what do they consider their Frapuccinos with hazle nut syrup, whipped cream and milk, a healthy drink? I think that we can determine if we are in the mood for a healthy snack and eat the kindsnack or are in the mood for a treat and have the valencia orange gluten-free cake. What Starbucks wants to "think" for me now, too? I putting my vote in.. Thanks for posting the link.
  13. Hi everyone, Starbucks has decided to pull their new gluten-free Valencia orange cake. If you are interested and able to, please visit their website and send them a message. They need to know that we need products like this. They claim that it was not selling as well as they had expected. Maybe they should have advertised more and given the product more that a couple of months to get going. Please, try to spread the word and get as many people as possible to try to convince Starbucks to bring the cake back and maybe even offer more gluten-free variety. http://mystarbucksidea.force.com/
  14. Travel To Ireland

    Hi everyone. Does anyone have any experience traveling to Ireland on a gluten-free diet? I would like to plan a trip with my family and my 12 year old daughter has celiac. Thanks for your help. Tica
  15. I can tell you from personal experience that pediatricians, and doctors in general, are NOT very knowledgeable when it comes to breastfeeding. Your best bet is to find a lactation consultant (LC). Supplementing will lower your milk production even more. A lactation consultant will help you increase your milk production without having to resort to formula. Try calling 1800-LaLeche for a LC near you. What your pediatrician can do is monitor your babies weight gain and growth while you are working with the lactation consultant to resolve your milk supply issues. Good Luck.
