    Hi There,

    I’m a newly diagnosed celiac that isn’t doing too well with just a gluten free diet. I’ve gone from no GI symptoms to feeling sick no matter what I eat (and I only eat GF). By sick, I mean, I get stomach cramps and nausea and feeling like I need to puke. Thankfully that’s been the extent of my symptoms though it’s been very hard to function.

    I should be getting my BTVC book today or tomorrow from Amazon which should be helpful. I’ve poured over the SCD and BTVC websites and am trying to implement what I can. I don’t have a yogurt maker and I can’t find farmer’s cheese (though my stores are supposed to carry it).

    The friday my family and I (hubby and 4 kids who are all gluten free now) are traveling from MIami to Chicago, the Rockford/Crystal Lake area. I’m wondering if you know of places there where I can get farmer’s cheese? Would you have any suggestions on how to survive our trip without being able to fully implement SCD till I get back?

    Thanks for any help.

    I have to admit that I haven’t tried to find farmer’s cheese (dry curd cottage cheese, aka DCCC) outside of my local grocery stores in central IL (which do not carry it). I do hear good things about a store called “Trader Joe’s”. See this google map for locations in the Chicago area :,-87.919464&spn=0.79178,1.389771&z=10 . They also have stores in Georgia and Indiana. Their website is To save you time and frustration, I’d give them a call first to see if they carry DCCC.

    Also here is a web page listing places you can find DCCC :

    Let me answer your travel survival question by telling you how I travel by car from IL to MN. First of all we will stay in places that have some sort of cooking facilities. When we camp, I have a small cook stove. When we are using hotels, we stay in ones that have a kitchenette.

    You need to have lots of food ready to go to take with you or plan on grocery shopping and cooking when you arrive at your destinations. You need to think of foods you can eat cold while traveling like beef jerky, cheese, fresh fruits and dried fruits. I have several coolers to keep this food fresh as we travel. I have to travel without thinking of all those convenience stores and restaurants. I generally don’t trust any chain restaurant to be knowledgeable enough about their products to serve me something that is 100% legal.

    When I travel by plane I have enough food on me to make it to my destination. Things I carry include dry fruits, fresh fruits, cheese and beef jerky. You can find small flexible coolers just for this.

    I’ve not tried a partial implementation of the diet myself, so I don’t know what sort of results you will achieve. As you may have already gleaned from the BTVC website, the philosophy of the SCD is that any straying even a little from the diet will prevent you from achieving desired results.

    Given that you have so little time to prepare before your major trip, you may want to consider not starting the diet until you have more lead time. I only offer this as a possible way to prevent frustration. For example, when I found out about the SCD is was late summer and I decided not to try to start the diet until after thanksgiving and xmas. Of course you will know what is best for you and your family.

    Best of luck to you,
    Paul Stocker
