Update: First Gluten Free Shopping Trip

Just thought I would update everyone! Been back at school 2 days and my teachers have been so supportive. Now to my grocery trip. I live in Utah and we don't have a lot of things. So I thought we wouldn't have much gluten-free at my normal grocery store. We had an entire isle! I was very suprised. I heard Van's frozen waffles were good and I used to eat eggos all the time. This morning I had one and my review is: They are 10 times better then whole wheat eggos which I had tried before being diagnosed, Van's are crumbly, and a little less sweet then normal eggos, butter and syrup make everything better. We bought all our normal recipes and tonight we are having beef stew, with gluten free gravy instead of the normal gravy it calls for. For lunch I had a corn tortilla with cheese on it. So a cheese quesida. Funny thing is I hate flour tortillas and have always ate cheese quesidillas on corn ones. Several kinds of potato chips are gluten-free. My favorite not being one. I love Barbeque chips but I'll pretend to love Sour Cream and Onion. :D For all the other newbies who are wondering whether they need to quit dairy or not, I quit dairy before I was diagnosed. Any time I would drink milk I would bloat within minutes and feel so sick. I couldn't eat anything after drinking milk. So I say: If it makes you sick don't drink it. Go gluten-free for a few weeks while still drinking milk and see how you feel. I know for me its hard getting enough carbs in and milk helps alot. I have no reaction to cheese or sour cream. Anything that isn't straight milk and I am fine. It's all about how you feel. I bought Udi's frozen bread but haven't eaten any. It's in my freezer and I was wondering do you guys unthaw it or pop it in the toaster frozen? Do you always toast it or is it good for sandwhiches? We also have a local gluten-free maker named Grandpas Kitchen. Have you ever heard of it or tried it? Give me reviews. We bought grandpas kitchen pancake mix and a flour blend. We bought betty crocker chocolate chip cookie mix. Reviews on any of this would be cool. Tell me what else you like too!

If you live in the Salt Lake City area, there are several bakeries and a gluten-free store. The store is in Larson? A bakery with lunches in Sandy. A restaurant near ?

If you live near there, let me know & I'll get the info.

On the bread..you can toast frozen or leave it on the counter for a few minutes to thaw. Or if making a sandwich for school, make it on the frozen bread & it will thaw by lunch.

A lot of stuff we ate was gluten-free already or was easier tweaked. A lazy snack is put a slice of cheese or some shredded cheese on a corn tortilla and microwave, Fold quickly. Sometimes I put salsa on it before I microwave. Or some cooked chicken with the cheese.

IMO, Betty Crocker makes a good product.. Dairy may be an issue in many processed foods... Check out the Gluten Free BuckWheat flour & pancake mixes... Beware that gluten-free portions of processed foods are smaller or one's waist may get wider...

I've heard of the bakery in Sandy and plan to try it out in January when I go up to visit friends and family. The Betty Crocker cookies, brownies and cakes are great. In Salt Lake is one of The Original Pancake House restaurants. They have gluten free pancakes that ae fantastic. I always make corn tortilla quesadillas flat (2 tortillas) and cut like a pizza. The kids will eat them with me like that. I also love to go to The Old Spaghetti Factory in Trolley Square in Salt Lake as well. As I said in a previous post, they have gluten free noodles and I was told that all their sauces (except meatball sauce) are gluten free and no croutons on the salad of course. I get the bread, but only eat it toasted. This is a personal opinion, but it seems to have the consistency of the regular old wheat flour bread when warmed. It has always seemed too dry just thawed. We had a beach trip one day and my wife had made sandwiches for the family. This was when we were first getting used to the gluten free thing. I got my sandwich out of the cooler and took a bite,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,. It was too dry for me and I just ate the meat and cheese out of it. There is Kettle Brand potato chips in all different flavors including Bar-B-Q, it says gluten free on the front-side advertisment. I also buy the UDIs bagels. Their great for breakfast.

Have fun!

Ray :D

I like to put something moist on my bread. Cream cheese, flavored cream cheese like Aloutte, Better Buttah ( flavored butter), iceberg lettuce, jelly.

I grew up in West Valley & still have family there, so am always interested in hearing about what gluten-free options are available there.

Dinty Moore Beef Stew is labeled gluten-free.

If I remember right, Lay's stax bbq chips are labeled gluten-free. (please correct me if I'm wrong.)

Winger's should have a gluten-free menu-- ask for it when the server seats you.

My favorite breakfast is Van's toasted waffles, with a quick peanut butter spread and jelly or honey. Throw a half banana, or a strip or two of bacon, and you can eat it on the run as a sandwich......and yummy.

Sounds like you are good Booghead! :) And lucky to have such gluten free options available.

I read somewhere that Lay's Stax are gluten free too! I will have to grab some.

I love Wingers. We had one right by us in North Ogden and they sold it to someone else and then it became a dive and now its out of business. But there is one in Brigham City only a 30 minute drive from here. I am excited to try it out! Though my favorite meal is probably not gluten free. >.< I like all their salads too.

Salt Lake CIty is about an hour and 15 min. away from us. We go once or twice a year and a visit always includes going to the old spagetti factory. I am glad to here they have gluten free! Never been to the pancake house but will have to try it! Thanks for the input. If I remember West Valley City is about 2 1/2 hours from here. Went there on a field trip and the majority of the field trip was on a bus :rolleyes: Sandy isn't too far out of SLC so when we are up there I will insist on going to that bakery.

Check back later or tomorrow. I have a busy day today. I'll post the names & locations of a few places in te SLC area. If you are in the area, you could check them out.

I don't live there, I just go skiing there.

There is a big grocery chain there that seems to have alot of gluten-free stuff. I can't think of the name but I think its in my notes. Maybe thats your local grocery.

Here's the store. Its in Layton. They gave me a list of places that have gluten-free food - restauraunts and bakeries. You might email them for suggestions. They are a really nice family. Jenny has kids about your age so mention your age and maybe a 2 sentence intro if you email.

Udi's bread I always pop into the toaster frozen . For sandwiches I also toast it lightly.

Bisquick makes a mix that although is expensive is quite good. Betty Crocker mixes are also quite good. (Both do contain soy)

Van's Waffles are great, I take a toasted one to work and put apple butter on it when I'm ready to eat. I also used them a few weeks ago as bread crumbs for stuffed pork chops. (when I was new and didn't have bread crumbs). A great bread crumb is Aleia's, you can always save the ends of bread (I like Udi's) and make your own. I've tried Brown Rice Tortillas and they are horrible. I've used Maria and Ricardo's soft taco tortillas and they are great, I'm lucky enough to have a Whole Foods and Trader Joe's within 20 miles.

Good luck you sound so happy and there are many here you can help you w/ your local area. Stay Well. Cathey

    • Feeneyja, This will be a little long but I will  try to be brief as possible. See this discussion thread that talks about how Pellagra is often diagnosed as other disease's today because doctor's rarely recognize it today in a clinical setting. Pellagra's is described as the 3 D's if you don't count the 4th D of death if it goes long enough and is not diagnosed in a timely manner. Dementia (Neurological) Digestive (GI problems), Dermatitis issues (Ezcema, Psorsias, Acne etc.) According to mdguidelines website http://www.mdguidelines.com/pellagra indicates that quoting “The diagnosis of pellagra is straightforward when the classic rash is present but may be elusive if there are only gastrointestinal and/or neurological manifestations.” And why I believe in many cases Pellagra goes undiagnosed today.  Because doctor's have forgotten how it presents. A longer researcher article about the neurological presentations of pellagra mention the many ways a Niacin deficiency can present itself. Here is the link https://www.hindawi.com/journals/cggr/2012/302875/ and I will quote some of the neurological/dementia related symptom's of an undiagnosed pellagra patient. "Mental symptoms were wider than dementia, in that depression, fatigue, psychomotor retardation, mania, obsessions, and a whole range of psychoses with auditory and visual hallucinations were well described, along with personality change and sociopathic and drug and alcohol addictive behaviours. Panic disorders were seen as was a general inability to deal with physical or mental stress. Poor brain development such as hydrocephalus or cerebral palsy was also common. Acute delirium or even coma occurred, with some patients having myoclonus and other extrapyramidal signs reminiscent of the spongiform encephalopathies. The dementias of pellagra included features akin to Lewy body, Alzheimer’s, frontotemporal, vascular, and prion diseases. Parkinsonism was also common and a festinant gait was first described in pellagrins. Tremors of various descriptions, including asymmetric rest tremors, were noted and some patients had typical paralysis agitans. Pellagrins had a characteristic expressionless facies, so some signs of parkinsonism were present in most cases. Many features of pellagra closely resemble the nonmotor aspects of PD. The neurological manifestation did not stop there because other degenerative conditions, such as an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-like picture, were described, with fasciculation of the tongue and upper and lower motor neuron signs. Cerebellar syndromes occurred and vertigo was frequent. Headaches, sensory and pain syndromes, epilepsy, and involuntary movements were noted as well as sleep disturbances. Cord lesions were also seen, as was optic atrophy, so there were multiple sclerosis (MS), like variants." It is me again. You can see the neurological symptom's of Pellagra are severe and wide ranging. Taking Niacinamide 3/day for 6 months can alleviate many of these symptom's if your daughter has subclinical pellagra and the doctor's don't know to look for it. I had deep depression for many, many years and I shudder to think now that only a Vitamin could of helped me 30+ years ago and the doctor's didn't know to look for it. Shoot it isn't just Niacin.  All B-Vitamin's help your stress levels.  IF you have stress B-Vitamins can help your stress levels. I take Folic Acid for Blood pressure problems and it keeps my BP with in a normal range. A article on celac.com discussed this topic in detail a few months ago. https://www.celiac.com/articles/24658/1/A-Differential-Diagnosis-How-Pellagra-Can-be-Confused-with-Celiac-Disease/Page1.html I hope it is helpful.  Good luck on your continued journey. If you have never heard of Pellagra you are not alone. Dr. Heaney discusses why this is so in his online article Pellagra and the 4 D's. http://blogs.creighton.edu/heaney/2013/11/18/pellagra-and-the-four-ds/ If you don't have time to read the whole hindawi article I also suggest this shorter but informative blog about why a Niacin deficiency can cause dementia related conditions. https://pellagradisease.wordpress.com/ Then decide for yourself and your daughter's sake to decide whether to take Niacinamide or not to see if it helps the D's symptom's she is experiencing (Digestive, Dementia etc.) The International Journal of Celiac Disease makes note of this in their research that Pellagra could be contributing to symptom's being diagnosed as Celiac disease today instead of a possible (co-morbid) Pellagra that causes the same symptom's. When they discuss how Pellagra and Celiac disease are related (Co-Morbid) in a Celiac diagnosis are surprised to find that in 58% of Celiac's -- can also be diagnosed with Pellagra. See this link http://pubs.sciepub.com/ijcd/3/1/6/ Quoting 3. Pellagra and celiac disease "The two diseases can be connected in two aspects. 58% of pellagra patients were shown to have malabsorption and many had intestinal pathology on biopsies [36, 37]. Alternatively, Pellagra was described in celiac disease [38]. The skin manifestations in pellagra might have some additional etiologies, since multiple nutrient deficiencies are at the origin of the cutaneous manifestations in celiac disease. The following nutritional deficiencies inducing skin rashes, were describe in celiac disease: Zinc, Iron, Vitamin A, E, B12, niacin, folate, selenium and essential fatty acids [39, 40]." If one is being diagnosed incorrectly the other co-morbid conditions can continue to cause Celiac like symptom's. But if the majority of those who have been diagnosed as Celiac could be helped by taking Niacinamide I see no you reason you shouldn't try it. Or at least research it some more. Again good luck on your continued journey. 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,

    • Color me confused.  I went to Costco yesterday and there were 2 products there that had GLUTEN FREE plastered on the box but then in the ingredients was a: May contain wheat. How is this possible?  How can they still put gluten-free on the box?  We should be able to trust gluten-free labeling no?? And second question:  How many of you would still buy that item?  I REALLY wanted to buy the Island Way Sorbet for my daughter as it is her FAVE.  But I didn't want to take the risk.  Maybe when she is healthier?  I mean it is SORBET?! LOL So frustrating!
    • JMG I have never laughed so hard! This was the best epic comment I've read! Thankyou so much!  Your all teaching me so much! Love the 'my glass to go' idea!! I will be adopting this... can't believe the mucky glasses we must be drinking from! Shocking!  Im still baffled how so many people don't understand cross contamination i.e. The crumbs on the work surface to cut the lime for your tasty beverage!  Your all amazing Thankyou x
    • Yes!  I never really had GI symptoms, but I did have palpitations and restless leg syndrome from anemia.  These went away within the first month. But myalgia and joint aches aren't better after 1 year.  Waiting to get my antibodies re-tested and see if they're negative.....
