  1. Seriously, how did that doctor get his medical license? Celiac Disease does NOT always have "poop problems" as a symptom. I have Celiac Disease and never had a bathroom issue before diagnosis. I had horrible stomach pains when I ate and severe malnutrition. I was 30 pounds under the healthy weight range for my height. It's a shame that TLC (the learning channel) would not learn anything about the topic of their episode. Poor girl probably DOES have celiac disease. She's gaining weight rapidly and has pains when she eats wheat. It's not a "fad" but more people are being diagnosed now that wheat is modified to have such high gluten content. We have modified our food so much that people are getting sick from it. And I am so over hearing people doubt my gluten intolerance. People don't do the same for peanut allergy or lactose intolerance. Why is gluten the target?? Because the public is uneducated - get your act together TLC!!!
  2. Bar Bao In Nyc

    Hi, for all you NYC Celiacs - I contacted Bar Bao on 100 West 82nd and Columbus and apparently they have a HUGE gluten free menu! They said they use different fryers and everything. So happy to see another restaurant taking part in the gluten free movement! Happy Eating.
  3. Nassau Bahamas Travel Tips

    I recently went to Sheraton at Nassau, Bahamas and I thought I'd share some of the gluten free restaurants I went to there. Try the fish fry! You can get some good food at great prices and I did not have ANY reactions to gluten! I went to the Twin Brothers and had surf and turf as well as the Bahamian Baked Chicken another night. For sides I got rice and peas and colesaw. I also had the Steak at Seafood Haven. I had NO issues! Get the Miami Vice drinks from Twin Brothers, they are so good. only complaint is that you have to leave the restaurant to use the restrooms across the street. My boyfriend had to stay at the table so I was chased by local guys the whole way (nice for ego, bad for safety) Also, my best surprise was at humidor churrascaria at Graycliff. All of the meats were gluten-free (or at least I had no reactions). They bring by all of these meats that are roasted, none breaded. Be careful of the salad bar at the beginning. The restaurant was romantic and so much fun when the kept on brining by the meats. I am very sensitive to gluten so I was so shocked that I had no gluten reactions at any restaurants. Oh, and I also had lobster and rice at Conch Fritters with no reaction. Be sure to check before eating, but these dishes were tested by me and passed the test. ENJOY!
  4. Traveling To The Bahamas

    Chrissy, How did your vacation go? Any tips? I am traveling to the Sheraton in the Bahamas and would love any tips you have on finding gluten free food there! I do not want to get sick on my vacation. Thanks!
