Been thinking about where I can eat out once in a while....

Now I absolutely love sushi and sashimi. I'm thinking this should be safe, except for the big unknown of the soy sauce. Oterwise I think the rice and the fish gets marinated in rice vinegar or something like that, and the wasabi I imagine is probably not tainted, it is some kind of ground-up root I think. Perhaps someone knows?

I'm thinking I could smuggle in a very small bottle of my own soy sauce and surreptitiously use that.

My kids love other japanese fodds, it might be one of the few places we can all eat out together that is okay for me.

Any thoughts?

The only other issue I know of regarding Sushi is to avoid the imitation crab as that usually contains wheat. Most Sushi restaurants I go to don't mind if you bring your own soy sauce. Enjoy!

I don't think there's any need to "smuggle" in your own soy sauce. Just bring it. The wasabi should be safe.

The fake crab almost without exception has wheat. Anything marinated, like the eel, will be marinated in soy sauce. Some brands of the orange fish roe have wheat.

Enjoy!!

I eat sushi often and I always take my own soy sauce, I plop it right on the table and just tell them I need wheat free soy... they could care less as long as I'm ordering sushi!

Sushi is the only eating out I seem to do these days. I BMOB - "bring my own Braggs" and sometimes make cracks with the waitress about the corkage fee. One time at the sushi bar the only actual Japanese guy behind the counter wanted to take a look at my Braggs bottle as he'd never seen it before and then he kidded me about it. He thought I brought my own because it has less sodium - couldn't understand the wheat part (there was a little bit of a language issue there). Anyway, even my tacky Braggs bottle didn't put them off. I did go out though and buy a smaller glass bottle that I can fit in my purse to take with me that is a little more discreet.

I usually order rolls, sashimi, and nigiri. No "krab" and for me, no shellfish, but I definitely eat tons of the wasabi and pickled ginger is a natural for folks with stomach problems! :D

Enjoy!!!

As others have noted, be careful of imitation crab meat. Also, any of the marinated meats - like eel - will have been marinated in something with a soy sauce. Some of the rice paper wraped items can have a sauce in them that you'll need to be careful of as well. The raw fish itself isn't usually marinated in anything, and it should be just fine.

My rule of thumb is to be very careful about reading the ingredient list in the particular role. I usually cross california rolls off the list unless I can confirm they're made with read crab, not fake. (Standard california rolls are made with fake crab - it has a stronger taste; real crab often gets drowned out by the other flavors.) I also avoid anything with a sauce or marinade.

Wasabi is usually gluten-free, and I make the assumption in restaurants that it is, but in the grocery store, please check the item you get. One or two do have modified wheat starch. Pickled ginger - assuming you accept that distillation doesn't allow the protein particle to pass through to the final product - is also safe, assuming no additives.

Most places rarely use REAL wasabi -- too $$$$$$.

They use a mix. I know the mix has some type of starch, but they vary.

Be careful..

I frequent a sushi bar, which stocks San-J Tamari wheat-free soy sauce for me.

Some eel can have soy, possibly Kikomann, containg wheat.

A nice dish is Chirashi, which is a flat bowl of rice with sashimi, roe and vegs. Ask for no crab and no eel. Usually very nice bargain, most places I've been.

Careful of other sauces like eel sauce and ponzu sauce.

also, sometimes the ginger has m.s.g., which is no good. and avoid "spicy" sauce stuff (like spicy tuna, etc.)-- usually has soy sauce involved w/wheat. i love sushi too! oh, and i think the salad w/that great japanese ginger dressing is a no-no-- again, soy sauce in the dressing. i *think* miso soups are usually fine, but i'm not sure on that one... anyone??

I don't worry about MSG but the miso soup can indeed have gluten. You have to check.

I love eating sushi at Japanese restaurants and they stock San-J Wheat-Free Tamari. If not, I'll bring my own. I avoid the wasabi and ginger, although I do miss them. Miso soup is safe - it's just soy beans, water, and sea salt. Be careful if you order sushi with tofu - they usually marinate tofu in soy sauce.

    • Sounds like gluten ataxia, or the form of celiac I have where it also attacks my nervous system and brain. I would get a celiac test if I was you, you have to be eating at least half a slice of bread or a few crackers for 12 weeks before hand and go to your doctor and ask for a full celiac panel. From there you need to be eating it for still and get a endoscope with biopsies to check for intestinal damage. Now to help with the mental issues I will tell your right now a good b-vitamin supplement will help you with the fog and depression a bit. I suggest Liquid Health Stress & Energy and the Neurological support one. Take 1 tbsp each 3 times a day. You will notice a huge difference in it. Being liquid it is easier absorbed by your body, if you have celaic then your intestines will also be damaged making where getting these nutrients is more difficult for you body. NOW as to the cheesy bread I hear you on that. I love eating Juilans bakery toasted read with dayia cheese on it.... I was using hte provolone for awhile but am now using the almond bread with daiya dairy free swiss. Love a good cheesy toast and egg white open sandwich with some avocado myself. I also posted a recipe in the baking section where you melt the daiya dairy free cheese shreds and mix them in with the flour blend I use that is gluten-free and make cheesy bread rolls out of them. I have a garlic and cheddar one.....you name just inspired the idea of using a bit of turkey bacon in the cheddar biscuit version.....would be epic

    • Hi,   my history is the following: I used to eat a lot of foods with gluten & cheese together. They would make me seriously happy and and I was extremely content just eating a pizza and bread with cheese and things like this... Now obviously I'd have cycles... where I eat tons of gluten/cheese foods in combination... feel super content and thats it... Then the effects would wear off and I had to start a diet.. where I'd do modified versions of fasting or so for a few weeks... During that phase I'd get very depressed... but after a few weeks of no-gluten... I'd eat bread with cheese again and I felt like I was in heaven. I'd get extremely high from this stuff... like seriously I'd feel amazing... (I guess it's the morphine like effects of this foods)  but after some when I hit age 22 or so I started to get serious trouble... ....   I started getting serious neurological issues from it... like I could't put my words together... I'd have paranoia & feel like everything is unreal... I've been diagnosed with numerus psychiatric issues since then... My main problem right now is that my brain isn't functioning... I can't comprehend what people are saying and when I want to say something my words don't come easily... Like if I am in a conversation for a longer time this issues is barely noticable at all... But if I wake up... and I try to talk... there's no way.. if I haven't talked for a while it's like you could ask me and I couldn't comprehend what you say and couldn't put my words together in the way I'd like to... I feel kinda stupid sometimes... because I know I'm rather smart but when I have a conversation my speech seems very unsophisticated... --- I tried to change my diet.. with varying success... like I would feel great in the morning and feel completely depressed in the evening for no apparent reason whatsoever... at all! And I feel I can attribute this to traces of gluten which feels like this:   ---- When I have traces of gluten inadvertently... I suddenly feel like everything is kind of unreal around me... I feel depressed in a "opiate withdrawal" kind of way... I don't know how to explain it... it's just painful in the sense that I can't just enjoy having a conversation... like I have a conversation but I don't feel "the thrill"... everything is totally bland and I just feel depressed in the background... like I don't want to do anything and no matter what I do.. it feels completely pointless because I can't comprehend why I suddenly feel this way...    And it's not like I feel this way 24/7... that's the thing... it comes and goes and comes and goes... sometimes I feel completely fine in the morning or even for 2 days or so.... and then I feel completely like s$#& and devoid off all satisfaction for 3 days where I feel I'm going completely crazy & I can't talk.. can't comprehend... feel super weird when talking to people... and then the next days I just feel suddenly "normal"... like this relaxed and easy-going feeling in your body and wanting to be social and to communicate and just have fun... but then... when I eat some food and I feel it has gluten.. it hits me in a subtle way... where I suddenly loose all joy in life for days... and then it just dissapears... I've been struggling with this for years now and I can't seem to comprehend or get on top of this issue... Do some of you guys have similar experiences?        
    • Having experienced autoimmune hives (not sure if celiac-related) daily for the last four months (now controlled by a cocktail of antihistamines, thankfully), I would be super diligent about my gluten-free diet if I had DH.  What do I mean?  Like Squirmingitch indicated -- no eating if you did not prepare it..  The itching can drive you crazy.  In my case, I never knew that you can get hives on the soles of your feet.   I hope you feel better soon.  
    • A celiac diagnosis is hard to absorb even for adults.  She is old enough to understand and she now knows that she is different (that's so hard when you just want to be like everyone else).  There is a grieving period that is normal.   Be patient.  If things do not improve, get her some help.  It might be better to hear it from another trusted adult than from Mom.  You are doing everything right.  I know you are loving her and being supportive.  Stay strong and do take some time for yourself, even if it is heading to the bookstore for a hour or so or taking a walk.   Within a few months, there should be some improvement.  Be sure she gets a follow-up test three months after her diagnosis and then another three months later.  Learn more: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/how-often-should-follow-up-testing-occur/ Hugs!
