I Had A Great Time In San Diego!

I just got home from 6 days at a convention in San Diego and I had a wonderful time. I was really worried about eating well down there so I went down well armed with GoPicnic Humus and Cracker meals and lots of protein shake pouches and meal replacement bars (from a brand which is apparently a lame advertisement when mentioned here. :rolleyes: )

I was with my mom who is also gluten free which was nice.

I did have a shake for breakfast every morning because it was definitely hard to find safe breakfast but we were also just a 10 minute walk away from a Ralphs's so we loaded up the hotel fridge with yogurt, fruit, juice and snacks.

I had 3 wonderful meals at Roy's. The have a great gluten free menu, the filet mignon with mashed potatoes and demi glace was to die for and I finished off each of those three meals with a gluten free chocolate souffle.

We also ate at Joe's Crab shack which has a great gluten free menu and several other places which didn't have gluten-free menus but did their very best to help me out even if it just meant that I ate ceviche with tortilla chips and maybe a plate of mussels steamed with butter and wine.

Also had a wonderful meal in the nice restaurant beside the visitor center in Balboa park before going to the zoo. They had many gluten-free options on the menu.

I had a great time, my back is a little sore but that's to be expected. I have traveled quite a bit over the past couple of weeks and have eaten at least 25 meals at restaurants so some cc is inevitable.

Just want to let anyone who is travelling to San Deigo and staying around the Gaslamp District or the Convention center that you will be well cared for.

Awesome news, Sara! I was wondering how you were managing.

Thanks for thinking of me.

I also ordered a bunch of stuff off Amazon and brought back a 45 pound box of gluten free food as checked baggage. A few bottles of amazing balsamic vinegar from a little store in SD, 12 pounds of Pamela's pancake mix (my kids' favourite but expensive here), gluten free worchestershire sauce, Udi's granola, 250 individual pouches of gluten free tamari so I can go out for sushi and some other stuff. The TSA cut my box open and repacked it less than carefully and one of the bags of pancake mix split open but other than that it all survived.

You obviously planned ahead! I have not been to the US in ages but when my in-laws go for the winter they stock up and bring back gluten-free Worcestershire, etc. as well. It is sickening how much cheaper things are there, too!

    • Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. Once I get glutened I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I have carbs once a day rather than every meal to save time. I can hear in your tone this tired, fed up tone that I recognise so well from when I get glutened. I know what it's like to dream of living in a far away gluten free bubble. I felt like that but after a couple of months (which were a hard adjustment) I got to a stage of knowing what I needed to do. Your medical background will help you methodically work out what you need to cut out and what is safe and you will get there. Stick with college. Don't let this crappy stage take that away.   The thing that saved me though over everything was finding this article: https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-40
    • Thanks to both of you. Ok, so I was feeling not great and went grain free for 5 weeks. Then slowly started to introduce grains. All seemed ok, then I had an issue after 3 weeks, with blood in my stool. Celiac wasn't on my radar. In fact, rice and oats are what seem to bother me most. But the Dr added on the celiac test and it was indeterminate. So I was sent for endoscopy and colonoscopy. I consumed gluten for just over two weeks, then went back to my grain free, dairy free diet. I saw my Dr this am and she said my bowels were healthy, that the Dr had taken 'several' samples and that all is well on both ends.  (No celiac, but also not H Pylori, crohn's, etc). She is running all kinds of other bloodwork, because I am still feeling terrible, and obviously the assumption I had made was that it was celiac. I'm going to stay off gluten for now, in hopes that I'll start to feel better. My GI symptoms are worse this week than they have been in ages...so something is up, but apparently I'm healthy??! I am pretty sure my Dr. would not refer me to another GI. She's not the best, but it's very hard to find another Dr. here, especially if you already have a Dr. (Canada) I am going to ask her for a copy of the report though, as well as the rest of the bloodwork she's sending me for. 
    • This is exactly what I'm wondering also.
    • I'm confused. You don't have celiac? Have you had a blood test or biopsy? Have you been diagnosed with DH?  What were you diagnosed with 9 years ago? If it was celiac or DH why have you only been gluten-free for 6 months? We need a better picture of what's going on here to help you more successfully.
    • Okay good point. I did not know that about ketosis. Thanks for educating me.
