Hi,
I have been a vegetarian for most of my adult life (I am 60). I was diagnosed with MC in 2005 and took Asacol and Entocort. In 2009 after my divorce I had remission and remained drug free for 4 years. Now I have a flare up and don't want to go back to drugs. I have been experimenting with a gluten free diet for a month now and I feel much better most of the time, but I am making mistakes. I had a good friend with celiac disease so I thought I pretty much understood the diet, but I thought oats were OK. I have been keeping a diary and after reading about oats on this site, went back and saw that oatmeal did correspond to problems. Fortunately I don't have a sweet tooth and never eat cakes, cookies or pastries, but I did use pasta and bread more than I ever realized. I used to have pizza a couple of times a month.

My biggest problem is that I travel a lot and eating away from home is a challenge. I have found that some servers are understanding and help me with menu choices. One warned me off rice pilaf, because she had checked it for another customer and there was wheat in the flavor mixture they used. I am so grateful for all the advice on this site.

In August I am going to Asia for three weeks. Does anyone have advice about airline gf meals? Any experience with Asian (Thailand and Myanmar) foods being gf? I would hope that I would be okay if I avoid noodles.

Hi,

Most cruise lines offer dependable, safe, and well-planned meals for passengers who have food sensitivities. Unfortunately though, most airlines seem to operate at the opposite extreme, with rather poor service for passengers who have food sensitivities. Typical gluten-free options on most flights include salads, fruit, and/or dairy products, none of which are good choices for most of us, especially while we are still in the recovery stage.

As a result, most members here who book flights usually take their own food and/or snacks to be eaten on the plane. Of course, that has to be done properly, in order to get through security checkpoints at various airports. You might find some of the threads in the forum at the following link to be helpful:

http://www.perskyfarms.com/phpBB2/viewforum.php?f=62

You would probably receive more helpful responses to your specific questions if you post your questions on the Main Message Board, because most members only look in this forum to find recipes.

We have one member who originally hails from England, but mostly works in Hong Kong. I believe he is having a new condominium built in Thailand, and he travels extensively in that part of the world. Unfortunately he hasn't posted lately, because like many of us, he tends to get busy, but I'm sure he would respond to a personal message (PM) or an email and he would be more than happy to answer any of your questions. His username is ant.

There's a security feature built into the code of this discussion board that prevents new members from being able to see other member's contact information until after they have written at least 5 posts. That feature is inconvenient for new members, but it helps to prevent spammers from being able to register and "harvest" contact information from the members here before they can be detected and their membership removed. At any rate, after you write 2 more posts, you will be able to send PMs or emails to other members who are not currently posting, or to ask for help with issues that you don't want to post on a public forum. And you will have full access to the search function so that you can search the archives for past threads where certain topics have been discussed previously.

Incidentally, are you aware that there are 1 or 2 brands of GF pasta available based on corn flour, that many members prefer over wheat-based pasta? In general, corn-based pasta products seem to have better texture and flavor than similar products made from rice.

Ant, a member who visits the board periodically, lives in Hong Kong and might be able to give you some tips. BTW, Ant is a nickname for Anthony. He is from Great Britain, but presently lives in Hong Kong.

Here is a post he wrote recently: http://www.perskyfarms.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=17743

Dee:
Condiments- Heinz ketsup, Plochman's or French's mustard, Hellman's Mayo, Vlassic pickles, Black & Green Olives, Smucker's jellies, Bush's original baked beans, Crisco, Domino white and brown sugar, Sweet Baby Ray's b-b-q sauce, Golden Griddle pancake syrup or pure maple syrup, Classico or Barilla pasta sauce...
Let me know what I've forgotten because the list seems to be endless and I'm just getting started.

As stated above are these condiments GF/DF? I could not tell from reading the post.
