ChelseaS added a topic in Gluten-Free Foods, Products, Shopping & MedicationsGluten Free Sushi?I am wondering is sushi is gluten free? Specifically spicy tuna and spicy salmon rolls, those are my favorite. I know obviously I can't have any of the fried sushi rolls or anything with the crunchy onions they put on top (I checked and they fry those onions with wheat flour). I have gluten free soy sauce so I know that is fine. And as far as I know wasabi is gluten free isn't it? I really miss sushi so any info here on what's safe would be great!

ChelseaS added a topic in Gluten-Free RestaurantsHow To Deal With Servers Who Don't Think Celiac Is RealI just found out I have celiac a month ago. So far the diet hasn't been that difficult, except for when I go out to restaurants. I have seen a lot of articles and posts on Facebook about people saying gluten free eating is just a fad diet and that gluten sensitivity doesn't really exist. Obviously, this isn't true, but I seem to be treated like that when I go to restaurants. I actually had a waiter laugh at me the other day when I asked him if he was absolutely sure that the chips were 100% corn. He laughed and said sarcastically, "I love people who just found out they can't eat gluten! Don't worry, hun, you're fine."
I feel stupid for believing this waiter now, as the next 24 hours were not fun. I know I could have called the manager over and said my whole speech about celiac and CC and how they have to clean their prep areas and change gloves, etc. but I hate doing that. I have always been a quiet and well-mannered person in restaurants and I never complain. I hate the feeling I get when these servers are looking at me like the "bitchy" customer with too many demands who is just doing this for attention.
So my question is this: How do you deal with servers who don't take celiac seriously?
Thanks for ideas!
