    Hard day

    You poor thing! I have had that happen too! It's ok. I now only eat at dedicated gluten free places as I have been glutened while eating out. Both of the places where I was glutened are supposed to be very knowledgeable about gluten free. When I am glutened it is terrible. With 3 kids to take care of I can't afford to be sick like that. So now I eat before I go. I get something to drink and keep a snack in my purse in case. You definitely did the right thing for you!
  2. Hi Mvh9! I'm so sorry that you are suffering like this! ((((Hugs)))) Definitely get that GI appointment scheduled sooner rather than later. Ask for a repeat celiac panel. You should get one yearly. My GI doc does that along with CBC, Metabolic Panel, Iron and Ferritin and Vitamin D and B12 yearly. It would be a good idea for you to have all of those. There could certainly be something else going on as well and it could be autoimmune. It does seem like many people with autoimmune diseases have more than 1. Have you had a full thyroid workup? Not just TSH. It would include: TSH Free T3 Free T4 TPO Ab TGAb A lot of celiacs seem to also have thyroid issues. I have Hashimotos. When my thyroid is out of whack I get bad headaches, joint pain, severe fatigue. The thyroid is involved in every process that your body does so having it in a good place is really important. I hope that you get some answers soon and start to feel better!
  3. Congratulations! That is such great news! I'm sure that you feel great getting that result and knowing your hard work has paid off. ?
  4. Oh my goodness! Definitely a croissant! Also, go out to eat anywhere and order anything without asking questions. I miss that the most...

    Bread question

    I haven't, but they looked really good online.

    Bread question

    They have, yes. I love Canon's bagels so much! If you order by the case it's a much better price than the store. That's what we do. My store sells them for $7 For a 4 pack. But I can get a case of 24 online for $28.50 and sometimes can find a coupon code to save more. I love them toasted with sunbutter and I use them to make pizza bagels for my kids.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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!
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. 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
