I'm about a hour and a half away, but we go to Norfolk/Chesapeake about once a week.

If I can help you in any way, I'd be glad too...and Welcome!

Yup. Virginia Beach here. Canary in the kitchen when it comes to gluten. I've learned that most of my food has to be cooked "from scratch" -- Organic Food Depot on Commuter Drive (right off Holland Road & Independance Dr. is a great place to shop, best prices on gluten free pasta & other goodies. I know that level of sensitivity varies, and many of us have other sensitivities as well. Been trying to be gluten free for 18 yrs, and have been successful the last 4 (had to divorce somebody to do that).

I'd be glad to help.

Oh, my name is Ellen Honeycutt. If you want you can add me on Facebook.

    • Have him read about the disease and the multitude of repercussions that occur from gluten consumption that have nothing to do with "classic stomach" issues. Not following a strict gluten free diet can lead to terrible diseases because your body will be so weak and damaged. When my son was diagnosed, reading about the disease made a big impact on our family members. Good luck and stay strong!
    • When I get glutened, I cough. Loud.  for 20-30 minutes.  Once people hear that, they take it seriously.  Refer your son to the newbie thread. If he still doesn't get it, kick him in the posterior. Hard!  
    • How about cooked fruits? You could even cook bananas. This is just something to think about. This may sound rambling for a bit but stick with me please.: I feed my dog a raw diet and part of that raw diet is all kinds of fruits & veggies. The catch is that the fruits & veggies have to be frozen & then I thaw it for her to eat. So what I do is take the fruits & veggies & put them in the Ninja & it comes out as what I call goop. Spoon it into sandwich ziplock & stick them in the freezer to freeze, then thaw as needed. Why do I freeze it? Freezing it breaks down the cellular walls which makes the nutrients more available as it passes through her digestive tract. Now I can't say with any certainty that the same would be true of humans but it would be a reasonable assumption. So to sum up..... I'm thinking it might be worth a shot to try freezing fruits & veggies & see if then you could tolerate them, especially if you pureed them first. 
    • I am 7 weeks diagnosed with silent celiac.  I am doing great and feel like  I have a good handle on everything.  What I am struggling with is my 21 year old son not understanding my diagnosis and the importance of avoiding cross contamination and why all of a sudden I can't have a Cookie, piece of cake, etc..   Since I don't have physical symptoms, he doesn't think it will hurt to have a piece of cake or something else.  He doesn't yet know that I have contacted our doctor to have both my kids blood tested.  Is there any advice on how to convince him the severity of following a strict gluten free diet.
