  1. Downtown Mpls

    Hello, If any Minnesotans can help me out it would greatly be appreciated. I'm staying in downtown MPLS for a week and need to find any gluten-free restaurants that are in walking distance around 50 south Sixth St. Can anyone help? You can email directly at tee0007@wi.rr.com as I'm new to this site and haven't checked it very often. Thanks, Trent

  3. I'm coming to visit downtown Minneapolis in December and will be staying near the RBC Dain Rauscher building on 6th St., can anyone tell me where I can eat downtown or at least give me names of restaurants that are within walking distance for mid-december weather? I'm actually staying at the Embassy Suites on 7th st (or 7th ave, something like that) if there are restaurants close to there also........otherwise I'm going to be lost and need to eat obviously. Thanks! You can email me directly at tee0007@wi.rr.com as I don't check this site very often.
  4. Anyone from southeastern WI , namely New Berlin, Franklin, Muskego or Hales Corners having a hard time finding Progresso Creamy Mushroom soup? We haven't found it in any of the Pick N Save or Sentry stores for the last couple weeks. I called Chris, the manager at the Hales Corners Pick N Save and he said he'd try to order for next time and they discontinued carrying it at his store. He was great to talk with and he said I'm not the only one to call so he's going to order. They have to buy about 70 cases and I said I'd take at least 2 if he brings it back.......anyone else shop there? Have any ideas? or recommendations? Thanks for reading.
  5. Do we now have to worry about toothpaste, are most brands filled with gluten, we have used aim, crest and colgate.....please help
  6. I just learned this from DaVinci Gourmet which produces flavored syrups if anyone is interested. It sounds like they did their research...Nice to deal with a company like this as she replied to me very quickly. http://www.davincigourmet.com/ The manufacturing processes, and all of the ingredients used in DaVinci Gourmet syrups and sauces, have been reviewed by our Quality Assurance Department and have been determined to be free of gluten. In addition, all of our ingredient suppliers have certified that their products are gluten free. The only exception to this is the Dulce De Leche flavor. Because of the raw materials used in this flavor, we can not guarantee that it gluten free. Please feel free to contact me with any further inquiries. Enjoy!

  7. Thanks for the info. I had went to the whole foods in madison since I was trying to avoid the east side drive to North Ave. Anyway, I talked to the manager and she said that 'rumour has it' that the milwaukee store was a 'test' market store and if they get enough interest they would look into putting one in another area. I told her that New Berlin would be a great location and would thrive. Give them a call and put in your 2 cents, they had a good selection as does Good Harvest. I guess I just have to get over driving more than 2 miles to the food store eh? So Pedro's was good at meeting your needs? Did you go through the whole speech or just order your food that way 'hoping' to avoid any problems? I'm still new to this whole thing, hopefully it won't be a month before I get back to check this site. So far 1 month on the gluten-free diet and only been sick twice.

  8. I use gluten-free pasta called Quinoa, they even sell it at our pick n save. I've eaten the spaghetti and also the lasagna noodles and they made the best dishes yet. Actually the kids like the spaghetti better than the old semolina type noodles. So far the only thing I really miss is the flour tortillas as I was never a real big bread lover. Being diagnosed as having a Gluten allergy hasn't been all that bad so far and the cramps etc. have stopped almost immediately.
  9. Hello, well I just signed up for this site as I've been an online freak looking for gluten-free resources since I was advised by my doc about 2 weeks ago that I have a gluten allergy. Also from the Waukesha area, so I was wondering if you found any good gluten-free stores, other than Good Harvest in Pewaukee. I'm thinking they need a whole foods in New Berlin or something. Any info would help, I will continue to read te other pages (just started reading). Glad to see many others in WI in the same dilemma. I have found Outback, Texas Roadhouse, Chili's all have info on gluten-free if you goto their websites. It's nice to know so the rest of the family doesn't have to suffer just cause I have an allergy. I'm actually kindof glad, think of all the stuff that I can't eat now that really is crappy for you in the first place. Anyway, don't even know if this will work, but will try and will post/respond to more hopefully in the future if it works.
