  1. Happy to help, so glad you can eat at Bertucci
  2. Hi Gemini, That's really good news! Great to hear you are enjoying the gluten-free carry out! Yum! Which ones do you frequent? I'd love to pass on the compliments if you don't mind. Jen
  3. Italian Restaurant, Framingham Ma--Help Me!

    Hey there Brett31em That's gross if you were served and ate regular pasta. Very scary. And good luck figuring out once and for all if you have celiac or not. I'm near Framingham, too, and there are a number of restaurants that I think would do a much better job. I work at the Bertucci's headquarters and there's one right on Rt9 in Framingham. We have a gluten-free menu (no pasta or pizza yet, but lots of good stuff & dessert), find the gluten-free menu on bertuccis.com. PF Chang's & Legal Seafood do a great job, too. I've found it's always a good idea to speak with a manager before you eat, even if there is a gluten-free menu. J
  4. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  5. Ttc?

    I just had my baby boy 3 weeks ago. The hospital was awesome and didn't kill me. I planned on alternative food sources and people bringing me food, but we didn't need it. They had gluten-free bread. I was nervous because it was toasted and asked if it was toasted in the regular toaster, they checked and said it was done separately. I'm vegan, too, and I had plenty to eat, veggies, potato, fruit, hummus. It was a good time.
  6. Flax Seed Oil

    Also. . congrats on your pregnancy! I am 19 weeks now and certainly had constipation in the beginning. Eat prunes or drink prune juice. It helped me out a bit and then the problem resolved in time.
  7. Flax Seed Oil

    I agree, smells very much like spam. It's a first post. With that said, flax seed (as with everything. . .in moderation) should be perfectly fine and even beneficial for you and your baby. Here's an article stating things with omega-3's are great. http://www.providence.org/Oregon/Health_Re...y_Nutrition.htm
  8. Pregnant And Craving Cereal- Help

    My dietitian gave me a sample of cereal called "Perky O's". Not too shabby! There are plain, apple/cinnamon, and frosted flavors. She also said don't try oats while pregnant (I'm 15 wks). Bob's Red Mill claims to have gluten-free oats, so I asked about those and she recommended waiting until after giving birth. Millet and quinoa with apple/cinnamon or raisins is a good breakfast. Congrats by the way!
  9. Gluten Free In Japan?

    My dietitian told me to look out for seasoned rice. It contains a vinegar that is not gluten free. Enjoy your trip!!! I would love to go to Japan!
  10. Kosher Gluten Free In Nyc?

    Babycakes on Broome Street has is a wheat free bakery. Lots of stuff is gluten free, some stuff has spelt flower so just be aware of what you order. And. .yes, it's Kosher.
  11. I Need A Multivitamin

    I am a fan of the "Rainbow Light Prenatal One" vitamin. Congrats!
  12. Can A Vitamin D Deficiency Cause Fertility Problems?

    Hi Deergirl and all! Thank you so much for the links and I hope everyone dealing with low D levels starts absorbing soon! I will read all the info on the links soon. Also, just went to the Dr and asked about the D levels having to do with fertility problems. She said D only had to do with bones. I spent most of my life dealing with Dr.s who are not always right. The links will be a good source of info I can ask/enlighten her about. Oh you asked how my d levels are. . .found out recently they are low, and like too many here, probably from malabsorption. <3
  13. Prenatal Vitamins

    I like Rainbow Light's "Prenatal One": http://www.rainbowlight.com/Categories~Cat...c2e5553134.html Looks like a very safe dose of Vit A and they guarantee that they're gluten free Oh and you can get a good price for these at Target, and every once in a while Whole Foods has them on sale.
  14. The Other Side Cafe-boston, Ma

    I am excited to try the Oxford Spa! Also. . .Wagamama has a celiac friendly option that are very delicious. One in Gov't Center and Harvard Square. http://www.wagamama.us/food_menus.php J
