  1. San Diego- Where to Eat?

    Thank you again CL! You've been so helpful. I can't do the Starbucks sandwich...both soy and millet in there. Millet causes me terrible pain...found that out the hard way on vacation once.
  2. San Diego- Where to Eat?

    Thank you again CL! I was just looking at Kirari! That looks great too. I do need to find out if they use oats or millet first(can't have either), but it looks delicious! I'm so excited...I do so appreciate your help! We usually cook our own stuff and plan to for the most part, but it would be nice to have a night off from the kitchen on our trip, so having some really safe ideas feels great! The older kids have fond memories of In n Out...and really want to go again. Would you eat there? I know that the only gluten they have is the buns, but I'm not sure. We don't have one here so I understand that they want to. I am also fine with eating before. I'm used to that!
  3. San Diego- Where to Eat?

    Thank you cyclinglady! You are, as always, a wealth of information! I really do appreciate your insights. I haven't been to San Diego in 8 years and it will be my first time going gluten free. We've decided to skip Sea World this time, but are doing the zoo and Balboa Park for sure. After reading your recommendation about Coronado we may just have to do that too! Our first 2 days will be in Anaheim, headed to Disney...after that we are driving down to San Diego. The 2 older kids want to go to the Santa Monica Pier...is that worth the drive from Anaheim? I'm thinking we could spend the day there before heading to San Diego. Also, have you been to Oceans and Earth restaurant in Yorba Linda? It sounds so good and am wondering if we should go. Thanks so much!
  4. San Diego- Where to Eat?

    Thank you so much again, RMJ...very helpful information!
  5. San Diego- Where to Eat?

    Thanks so much RMJ! I had looked at Healthy Creations...looks good. What do you recommend there? Also, is it kid friendly? I have 3 kids. 😊 I get horrible, long lasting symptoms from gluten, unfortunately. I was glutened on vacation 2 years ago and it ruined the rest of my trip. Any top recommendations on what to do with 3 kids? We have a long list of what everyone wants to do, but it can't be done in a week. Thanks again!
  6. San Diego- Where to Eat?

    Hi all, My family and I will be visiting San Diego in June! Although we plan to prepare a lot of our meals in the condo we rented, I would love some safe restaurant recommendations. I have been to findmeglutenfree.com already. I just want to see if anyone on here has traveled there and eaten out without any issues. Thanks so much!
  7. Hi there, I'm sorry that you have been suffering. That sounds awful! (((Hugs))) I agree with cyclinglady. Ask the Dr to order your full celiac panel. Get that started while you wait on the biopsy results. I hope that you feel better soon. Please keep us posted on your results!
  8. Thank you! That sounds delicious and like something my kids would really like! I ended up making chocolate cupcakes. I frosted half with vanilla and half with chocolate frosting and decorated each one differently. They looked so pretty and all got eaten.
  9. HI Lily...I just got an email from Canyon Bakehouse about their new sweet, Hawaiian bread and remembered you mentioning looking for a gluten-free alternative! Not the exact same as the rolls, but might work. Looks yummy! https://canyonglutenfree.com/buy-gluten-free-bread-products/stay-fresh-hawaiian-sweet
  10. Definitely do the scalloped potatoes! I am sure that your first gluten free Easter will be delicious and all of this gets easier the longer you do it!
  11. That does look yummy! I cant handle a whole lot of dairy, unfortunately. 😣 I love dairy, but it does not love me back. Lol!
  12. Hi AS, Would you be willing to share your strawberry dessert recipe? I'm still trying to figure out what to make. 😁
  13. Hi Lily, This will be my 5th gluten free Easter. Our menu is going to be the same as last year as we really enjoyed it. 😁 Grilled pork tenderloin Scalloped potatoes Roasted asparagus Glazed carrots Deviled eggs Buttermilk biscuits with homemade blueberry preserves I'm not sure what to do for dessert yet...thinking...
  14. Hi Strawberry, I had gallbladder polyps. I was diagnosed with them in the same month as celiac, as my Dr had ordered an abdominal ultrasound. My gallbladder was filled with polyps and the recommendation was to remove it, which happened about 2 weeks after my celiac diagnosis. Mine were all cholesterol polyps. Thats about all I know. My life was a blur at the time. I did not have right sided pain at the time, it was left sided, along with terrible D, bloating, etc. Since I went gluten free just before, I have no idea how having the gallbladder out affected anything. I have since been diagnosed with high cholesterol though, despite a healthy diet and am wondering if this somehow is related to the cholesterol polyps. I do hope you get all this figured out and feel better soon! Hugs!
  15. Colorado?

    I'm in Colorado 😀
