Hi again everyone. Well we've had yet another move, arrived here about 3 weeks ago but have very limited internet access at the moment.  The internet is not yet connected at my house.  In fact, we don't even have water other than tank water! So I'm using the computer at my dad's house.

 

We made it down, school went back for the year last week and my daughter has made a few friends and will be going on the upcoming school camp.  I'm not concerned about them catering to her gluten free diet because one of the staff members going is also coeliac, I'm just not sure if they'll get the whole vegan thing right.  They seem ok, but the camp provides the food, not the school.  It looks like a fun camp though.

 

So we now live in Victoria and have many adventures ahead of us.  We're going camping up Mount Franklin (where the Mt Franklin water comes from) and we have the Events Calendar with loads of activities that we'll partake in.  There are a lot of gluten free vegan options here, so much more than expected so even though I do pack an esky, most times we don't need to eat what's in it.

sounds like  you & yours  are on a adventure....My only  comment is: just  because  one  staff member  has  celiac  does  not  mean  they  will  cater  to  your  child , many  think  it  is  the  responsibility of the parents    to  insure  a  game  plan for their  child  is in place... Another thought  comes to mind! The  person  that is  celiac, do you know  this  person on a personal  level? If  not, then how  do you know they  are strict  to  the  celiac  lifestyle? You  do know  there  are  tons  of  people  who are  dx's  celiac  , understand  what  needs  to be  done to maintain health  but  just  can't  get  around  to  being  strictly gluten-free, they  just  don't  do it. They play  Russian  roulette  with their  own personal  health...

 

Sorry  this  is  a  negative  post  but I  would  hate for  you  to put  trust  someplace/someone  where  it may  come  back & bite  you in  the  end....for me  I  would  secure a plan for  my  well being. Even  at  best  that also  does  not always work  either.......

Hope  the  experience  is a great one....

Glad to hear from you!

 

I am sending you warm wishes for a great camp!  Hope for the best, but be prepared for the worst is my motto for sending the kids anywhere.  I have to say I have been pleasantly surprised that more people are getting informed for food stuffs.  (I usually send an extra foot locker of food.  There are some shelf stable microwave meals and breakfast cereals, snack bars, and I bake some stuff to send too.)

 

One of these days I would like to visit your side of the world.

That staff member is very strict with being on a gluten free diet and the place the camp is at caters to all dietary needs and have never got it wrong in the years they've been doing it, with hundreds and hundreds of kids passing through every year so I'm not really worried about it from that angle :)

    • Congratulations!  😊
    • KALE! It really is a super food. Lots of Vit C as well as other vitamins & minerals. Now I know you wanted something to drink but I'm just saying kale is hard to beat for nutrition. You can add it to liquids but yes, it does tend to have a strong flavor. As far as OJ goes, I rarely ever drink it & that includes pre-diagnosis. Every time I have tried bought OJ, it just turns me off, doesn't taste good. Actually it tastes fake to me. I did grow up where citrus grows & we were always eating oranges right off the tree or squeezing them for fresh OJ. It's hard to appreciate the store bought stuff when your palate knows the real thing.
    • Optimistic! (Insert jumping up & down with joy emoji here) You are doing GREAT!!!    Kudos!
    • 9 years ago I was over 200lbs, health started going down hill in college and dropped to under 125 3 years ago. Gaining weight again and now it is muscle. I found I had to add in KAL nutritional yeast to my meals at least 2-6tbsp a meal for the stuff I was not getting due to food intolerance and removing processed foods. Stuff really does help quite a bit. I also take liquid health supplements like the Stress & Energy. The binge eats  I STILL get years later, find myself just fixing a extra glass of protein shake and a nut flour and egg white bread when I am still hungry or mindlessly munching on almonds and seeds. Heck today was 7 egg white spinach omelette with nutritional yeast in it, 4 cups of homemade almond butter/almond milk sugar free icrecream with 3 scoops of protein powder, and then I had 3 pieces of coconut toast, a few hand fulls of pumpkin seeds, and then kept munching on a snack mix I made of hemp seeds and cocoa nibs. >.< I am gaining weight slowly again and up to 130lbs for a 5'11" male >.> I think my hunger might stem from working out alot recently. Bit of a list here from stuff I take and others https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/ PS if you new to this diet check out the 101 thread will help you out alot avoiding CC https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ I would help you out with foods but the EU/UK area I am not that familar with and sourcing I am sure some of our other members can help you out.
    • Once your tTg is in the normal range, and it's only 1 point away from that, that would be considered excellent results.  tTg just has to be in the normal range to be called a success.  The number you want to be as low as possible within the normal range is the DGP or AGA testing, as that tests for dietary compliance.  This is why it is a good idea to run both tests because it gives a more complete picture.  But with these results I would say you are doing an excellent job with the diet!
