I drove 2 hours to get there, since there only one city in Louisiana that has one. When I walked in I swear I was in gluten-free heaven!! They even had gluten-free mac and cheese, all ready made bread, PIZZA, cereal, cookies, crackers, omg you name it. My husband and I decided that we will go once a month just to shop. Who ever told me about this place I call heaven a big thank you from Sabastian. I even got him some noodles that he LOVES to slirp up. If you could have seen the look on his face when his daily snack wasnt the same old rice crackers that is all I could find. He LOVED them. So big thank you from Sabastian and a happy mommy!!!

Wonderful! Enjoy! Just beware that you can get fat on that stuff if you enjoy too much. That's what happened to me.

Whole Foods has a Whole Foods Generic Brand (365) cereal called Honey Frosted Flakes that are Gluten Free and fabulous. It's the only cereal I eat. If you buy a case (12), you get 10% off. I don't know if Sebastian is too young for sweetened cereal like that, but just thought you might want to know about it.

Good luck. Kim.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm on a business trip in Detroit, and barely made it to the Whole Foods in Troy after picking up my rental car last night, but was so happy to have a store like that be such a large chain that I can fly four hours and still KNOW that I'll be able to get gluten-free pasta, and gluten-free cereal, and other stuff I get at home that I know to be gluten-free. (Though, it amuses me to walk into grocery stores across the country and see California produce. :-) )

I love Whole Foods! I have never talked to a clerk that didn't know what I was talking about when I asked about a particular gluten-free item. They always recommend asking for a special purchase if they don't carry it. I like their produce also because there is such a variety of organic and often times it is cheaper than the local stores and produce stands.

I bought some coffee beans there and half the price went directly to a local enviornmental group.

You might ask about gluten-free cooking classes there. Our store has classes, haven't seen a gluten-free one yet but plan to ask when I have the time.

Just curious, where is the store in LA? I am visiting family in Mississippi right now and might drive down there if it's not too far.

My girlfriend took me to whole foods when I was visiting and I thought I had died and gone to food heaven. LOL That was when I was just into whole foods cooking. Now that I might have celiac it's nice to know they have gluten-free foods. I was in there a week ago. I see that Molly is in San Mateo. I go to the one on Stevens Creek by De Anza college. Too bad I live 3 hours a way. They have no plans on putting one closer. I e-mailed them a few years ago and found that out. My mother lives in Santa Clara and my hubby works down there and stays at her house. I'm also going to an allergist in Sunnyvale which gives me a reason for comming down. We live in Sonora. Comming down I always stop at whole foods. My daughter and I have this ritual of getting a smoothie there each time we come. Hugs, Carol B

    • I live in a house where some people eat bread.  I do not use the toaster that toasts regular bread. All sandwiches are made in a special area of the kitchen and I do not prepare any of our other food there. If you have touched bread, you have to wash your hands before you touch anything else in the kitchen.  After you eat bread, the dishes go directly (and only) into the sink.  I rinse any plates and forks extremely well that have had bread on them and then I put them in the dishwasher (they essentially get washed twice). Then I rinse out the sink.  I have a separate dish scrubber that I use when the plates have had anything with gluten on them.  We don't cook with flour or bake with real flour(except once a year when I let my kids make their birthday cakes). The flour goes everywhere and coats the surface of countertops.  Do you make all your soups from scratch? A lot of soups have flour as a thickener. Also Nuts are often times made in facilities that process wheat. Planters nuts seem to be pretty safe or shop at Nuts.com - they have quite a few options. Hope you feel better soon!
    • If you're like me, you've already tried all multiple options without very good answers, thus the reason you are on the boards...
    • Yes, I was. I had two weak positive blood work, then an endoscopy not for celiac but was very inflamed, and one positive genetic for celiac. My diet is very limited right now. I am almost paleo. I am really struggling to find food that I can eat and not bother my stomach. I eat a lot of nuts, peanuts, beans, chicken, veggies, fruit, and soups. I have cleaned out the house from gluten (except for my dad's rolls  ) I can not change out pans and cookware. I could try to get my own personal but it would be hard. How did you get glutened? 
    • thleensd, If you have POTS you should look into Magnesium. Here is a thread started by Ennis_Tx that talks about some of it's many benefits. Also see this link from the affibers.org website that mentions specifically Magnesium Taurate's role in arrhythymia's. http://afibbers.org/resources/taurine.pdf I also recommend trying some some Niacinamide and/or a 100 B-complex 3/day.  B vitamins help us manage our stress. If it (Niacinamide) or the B-100 or B-50  causes you to burp in 2 or 3 months (which has Niacinamide in them) then your symptom's could be caused by co-morbid pellagra. Knitty Kitty has given you good advice as well since Celiac's are low in many nutrient's often. Here is my blog post that explains what I believe happened to me. I hope it helps you thleensd the way it did me. Take a B-complex for couple months to see if it helps. Frequency is more important than the amount. 2x day of of a b-complex will allow your serum levels to stay high throughout the day helping you recover 2x as fast as once a day.  Do the same with Magnesium Glycinate or Magnesium Taurate  (2 to 3 times a day in divided doses) and I think your fatigue will greatly improve or at least your energy levels will increase greatly. I hope this is helpful. ****this is not  medical advice only some of the things I did to help myself. I am too sharing in hopes that other people will hear my story and believe . . . 2 Timothy 2: 7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • First were you diagnosed with celiac? Second what is you basic diet right now, there are some other common issues that go along with celiac food intolerance wise we might be able to narrow this down. Third did you read hte 101 and make 100% sure that nothing is contaminated? This sounds like you might have contaminated a common used prep surface, utensil, pot. Or have a contaminated spice, condiment, or something new in your house like a cleaner, hygiene product. etc that might be leading to more issues. I can only say if you can get your antibodies checked to see if still elevated to know if it is gluten or something else. Imodium will help with the D, Anise (the spice) and gas X can help with bloating, pepto bismal can help overall. These can help to make it more manageable. \ I might suggest trying to eliminate the chance of it being cookware by getting some cheap new microwave cook ware like a steam tray and omelette maker and just having steamed veggies, eggs, and perhaps a baked sweet potato. Avoid condiments and spices for a bit and see if you can clear it up taking it down to whole unprocessed foods. I find doing this and resetting helps after a issue (I got glutened this last weekend and did the egg and veggie diet with avocado and almonds). Bonus of cooking in the microwave is you get softer end product that is more moist, less burnt and oxidized making digestion easier in my opinion.
