A few weeks ago we took a one week vacation to Maui (specifically the Kaanapali Beach / Lahaina area). We had an amazing time even with the tsunami warning and not really relaxing since we had our toddler with us. Anyway we are here to talk about gluten-free food:

There were may options while dining out. Most of the restaurants are small and cook from scratch. At no point did we get that blank stare, everyone knew what gluten-free was. Some highlights included:

Penne Pasta Cafe: Small counter service place with brown rice pasta.

Maui Tacos: Take out taco stand

Hula Grill: Very nice place right on the beach

Bubba Gump: I know, it's a chain but we were exhausted from the all nighter tsunami evacuation and I just wanted some simple grilled shrimp and rice. (they have an official gluten-free menu)

Foodland super market: very extensive gluten-free section.

Almost anywhere: The Fresh Fruit, Fish, etc!

There were others but rest assured if you want a vacation in an amazing setting, eating gluten-free in Maui is no problem at all.

Oh and here I am being interview on the today show about the evacuation: http://www.bing.com/videos/watch/video/hawaii-tourist-learns-of-tsunami-through-twitter/69ubxdu

Thanks! We're headed to Maui in two weeks! Where did you stay?

We stayed at the westin villas time share place. Family owns. I personally don't see the value in ownership everything there is just so expensive.

My family went back this year (without us) and said they noticed even more gluten-free options. One place is called star noodle. Bring me back some pineapple! You'll have an amazing time and don't sweat the gluten-free in Maui. A very easy location to get buy.

FYI, there's also a Costco next to the airport. Very easy to stop on the way to your destination on Maui.

    • Matt It makes me feel better knowing I am not alone in this. Gluten sensitivity/celiac seems to effect women more than men too. Your experiance sounds a lot like mine.  Besides trying to figure out what foods were causing my problems, I am getting older, and have developed mild arthritis. I was also diagnosed with adult A.D.D. many years ago. As you know, both are symptoms of celiac!  I also began a new high stress career at the same time my symptoms began. So confusing. I guess that's why its called 'The great imitator'. One bright light is the fact a lot more gluten free foods are coming out now, and some of them are actually quite good! Thanks again and please keep in touch, possibly through Facebook. BTW I see you are in the UK. My heart goes out to those poor young gals in Manchester and their parents. I have a  young daughter as well. 
    • My mini fridges usually freeze my eggs!  Ugh! You can buy hard boiled eggs in packages at some groceries.   lunch meat, canned soups - Progresso has some labelled gluten-free, microwave rice - either frozen or in the regular rice isle - add frozen veggies and chicken lunchmeat or canned beans and salsa A few frozen dinners are gluten-free - amys , gluten free brands like Udis, EVOL, Lean cuisine, etc Bush's baked beans Read the ingredients and labels - they all aren't gluten-free.
    • Those cooked eggs are just fine!  If you want to insure that the frig is colder, add a bucket of ice.  Is used to travel without the benefit of a frig.  I just used a couple of ice buckets to chill milk, or whatever.  It worked.  If you want a hot meal, try Udi's frozen meals.   Not the best, but good for hotel cooking.  Several lunch meats are gluten free too at the market.  
    • I clicked it and got re-directed to c.com  but this time I got the article.  I shouldn't copy the whole thing but here is the conclusion - "In conclusion, in the right clinical setting, symptomatic celiac disease is treatable, but we do not recommend population screening. Further data on the clinical impact of a glutenfree diet on the microbiome and the long-term health consequences in those without celiac disease are needed. The entity NCGS closely overlaps with the functional gastrointestinal disorders, and new evidence suggests that at least in some gluten may not be the culprit despite symptom improvement after beginning a gluten-free diet.We do not recommend a lifelong gluten-free diet for individuals without celiac disease."   Celiac Disease and Nonceliac Gluten or Wheat Sensitivity The Risks and Benefits of Diagnosis Nicholas J.

    • Thanks for the responses. As far as genetic testing goes I wasn't offered that as an option. They ran several labs and everything was normal. We were waiting on celiac to come back and when it did the one marker was high. Not sure who I would talk to about having a genetic test. I did a genesight test for medications and it showed folic acid was questionable. But nothing pertaining to this. Endoscopy is scheduled for Friday.
