    long island, NY
  1. i am so happy to be home on long island (however short lived ) b well in plainview has hands down the best chicken salad in the world.
  2. Also you should never take a pro-biotic at the same time you take an anti-biotic. the AB will just kill the PB. they should be taken at least two hours apart. also a general rule of thumb, take a PB for at least twice as long as the AB. ie Ten day cycle of an AB should reslut in a twenty days of a PB.
  3. hi all i just tried a new bread by the grainless baker and it is awsome. it is the regular sandwich type i and it just mybe the best i have ever had
  4. for the first few months i was gluten-free i put up with there products. i could not find anyone else making gluten-free stuffed shells or ravioli. then i found safe harbor foods and have never turned back. if i absoultly had to have ravioli and couldn't find anyone else i guess i would buy dietary specialties again.
  5. hi nancy i use kirkman labs DPP-IV Forte. it says the activity is 60,000 HUT. i saw glutenease at the store the other day, when i run out of what i have i was going to try it.
  6. just GI symptoms, and i have never tried after glutened. i always take before eating out. i get very minor queasiness and i know of CC and feel thankful for the pill.
  7. Solgar 5-htp

    if im not to late 5-Hydroxytryptophan is a "natural" SSRI, and from what i understand it is not effective unless enteric coated. I was also told although B6 is usefull it should be taken at a differnet time then 5-HTP
  8. like jkmunchkin i was also not planing to join this topic...that said here i go. Please do not YELL at me as I am NOT writing this as FACT . It is only a guess that I have because of a product I already take everytime i go out to eat. I take the enzyme DPP-IV and it is wonderful for ME when i get CC at restaurants. My guess is that the research is based on that enzyme. Here is some info from the company. Dipeptidyl peptidase (DPP-IV) is a protein that has multiple functions in the body. It is known under different names depending on where it is found. When DPP-IV is on the surface of the T-cell (lymphocyte), it is called CD26, and supports immune function. When this enzyme is found on and imbedded on the epithelial brush boarder mucosal membrane of the intestinal tract lining it is known as DPP-IV. The importance of DPP-IV is that it has primary function in breaking down casein and side chain activity in breaking down gluten. Thus the use of a DPP-IV containing enzyme will support the digestion of casein-containing milk products as well as the protein in gluten-containing grains. please fell free to correct me if you have additional info
  9. Quinoa....yuck

    I second everything said
  10. Grocery Shopping

    yes: i do but my DD although not offically celiac is also gluten-free no: I have a wonderful shop Dr B Wells. dedicated section as well as clearly posted gluten-free in each isle yes: and already do
  11. Long Island Restaurants?

    mama's is the best better then baldo's in my opinon. that being said i have never had better ravioli then the safe harbor foods brand. i have only found them at b wells in plainview, not sure if it is there own brand or not. call before you go, they seem to run out quickly.
  12. Breads?

    i use kinnikinnick white sandwich bread (ditto on the butter trick) i also use foods by george english muffins.
  13. i have seen them at my local store. i believe the company is joesph's bakery.
  14. a company call natural balance has had the same thing on the market for at least seven years, at it taste exactly like butter.
  15. muir glen and bio nature are both gluten-free and readily available.
