Gluten free places to eat at those places please and thank you!!!

 

I can only help you with UK based restaurants but there is a chain called Cafe Rouge which has a gluten free menu and a very good one at that.  They are good with CC issues and are very knowledgable, in general, of Celiac Disease. I am an extremely sensitive, diagnosed Celiac and have never gotten sick there.  Over a few trips I ate there about 5 times.  It is French style peasant food and very good.  Google the name and you can find out what cities they are in but they are all over the place in England.

 

I have been to the last 4 cities on your list and can honestly say it is very easy to eat gluten-free in Britain.  Most people will know exactly what you are talking about.  Edinburgh was easy and you can't go wrong with their salmon.....some of the best in the world.  I found it not very hard to walk into any restaurant and get a really gluten-free meal.  Eat simply and you should be fine.  No language barrier unless you don't speak good English but I doubt that's a problem for you. :)

 

Here are some links for you...I am going across the Pond in September so did some recent research.

 

http://www.leonrestaurants.co.uk/menu/  Haven't eaten here before but wanted some cheaper eats for London.  Menu looks pretty good.

 

http://www.da-mario.co.uk/  Haven't eaten here either but these restaurants I got off a Celiac Society website so the source was good.  Not sure if they have a specific gluten-free menu but are willing to adapt their menu items for gluten-free.

 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sponsored/in-the-know/london-dining/9469450/london-gluten-free-restaurants.html  I aim to try some of these when I go over.  Not sure what your budget is but if you go to a higher end place, the odds of a gluten hit are slim to none.  I have been eating in the UK since 1994 and was diagnosed in 2005...haven't had much of a problem in many trips.

 

http://www.mermaidstail.co.uk/  I had gluten-free Fish and Chips here on my last trip in 2010 and it was fabulous.  They have a dedicated fryer for the gluten-free stuff.

 

 http://www.hazev.com/index.htm  I am trying this one for the first time in September.  It was recommended to me by UK friends.  I contacted the manager and they were great.  Told me to come in and they would make sure I got a gluten-free meal and already told me what items I couldn't have. There is a lot on the menu that can be made gluten-free and it looks fabulous.

 

Always ask to speak to the manager for your needs and that should work well for you.  You can Google the other cities and get listings for gluten-free food.  I visited them pre-gluten-free so can't give you any more for those places.  Have a wonderful time!  You've chosen some amazing places to visit and I hope you have as good of a time as I did!

There's a gluten free bakery in Paris called Helmut Newcake.  They have a lunch menu and sell food to go, as well as having a ton of pasteries and other baked goods.  Very tasty and owner is celiac. 

 

Paris also has a certified gluten free restaurant called Noglu that I haven't tried.  I think it's only been open for a few months.

 

Celiac isn't really well known in France yet, but restuarant cards should get you what you need.  I ate a lot of grilled fish, steak, french fries and salad and was fine.

We were in London two years ago.  I thought it was as easy to be gluten free there as in most big cities in the U.S.   (I live in Minneapolis and it's very easy to be gluten free here...probably because I mostly eat at home)

 

The one thing about London/England was that we could always get a steak and chips (fries) or potatoes in pubs that never caused a big problem.  Also, we determined that if we could find an Indian restaurant we were generally good to go.   The only thing I can say is that when we got home after two weeks in England I didn't eat steak or potatoes for several months.   I did pack up a lot of bars from home that I carried along with me.  My little girl and I are both gluten free and we made it through two weeks without issue.  (Except losing a little weight...because it's definitely harder to eat)

    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      As you doubtless know now, there are so many ways celiac can present, here's as big a list as I could find online. It would probably be quicker to list what isn't a factor For me personally, nausua, check, left sided back hip pain (my laymans theory here is that celiac is affecting the sciatic nerve which runs from lower back down leg) , check, chest pain also - but for me this comes in short bursts more I guess like heartburn - I thought I was having heart attacks... Check to the rest too... And, for what its worth, other things like being prone to bronchial infection oh hell yes.  I'm currently in the glutened / affected by something group myself so I can only share the advice I've been given. Start a food diary and see if you can track down anything diet related that may be affecting you. Eat as clean as you can, ease up on alcohol, just try and give yourself the best chance of recovery. Have a google of 'heal my gut' diet tips too, you're in the recovery phase at the moment. All the best, at least there's comfort in knowing you're not alone!   Matt  
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for the advice Matt, I will be sure to take it all onboard. It's really good to talk to others that have had similar experiences. I'm currently upping my b12 and also taking a additional (gluten free) multi and b complex, also omega 3s and Vitiam D3. I had been noticing small improvements that I forgot to mention in my previous post. I noticed that I fall asleep now much easier than before going gluten-free, I also have moments where my body feels more calm, then blood in my stool has stopped I haven't had any in 10 weeks. My mind was constantly fixated on negative thoughts for the past 2 years and they slowly began lifting from all day negative thoughts to maybe half a day of negative thoughts if that makes sense, but this pass week and a half they have come back, I'm also finding my self very nervous again around other people I'm hoping this will pass. The anxiety / depression is the worst symptom for me I would not wish it on my worst enemy, if that went away I would be the happiest man in the world. I found it very hard to talk to people about my mental health issues at work before I lost my job as I found some people stigmatise me and don't understand or really care, but I figure i don't need narrow minded people like that anyway, and as a man its hard to open up but my wife is very supportive and encouraging. Thanks again for the advice really apricate it
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      G'day Chris and welcome to the forum. You have found what I think is the single best resource on the web for advice, support and understanding for this condition. There is so much info here it's difficult to know where to start, but that's what this thread is for, please check it out. I think I got the recommendation for 'Real life with Celiac Disease' by Dennis and Leffler there, I'll second that, there's a lot of very useful info in there which helps to answer a lot of your questions. May be useful for your partner also. Chapters are short and informative so you can dip in and out.  There will doubtless be more advice to come from others with more experience but there's a few things which occur. Firstly, 10 weeks is very early days. Your body has been under an assault for many, many years. Your immune system has been working overtime and like so many others you've only reached diagnosis after reaching a crisis point. You are now healing but it won't be instant and it won't be without ups and downs, speedier and slower phases.  Second, being strict on gluten is essential, but it's only one part of the puzzle. You also need to eat really healthily and try to heal your gut. As you remove gluten you may find that your body starts telling you that other foods are also an issue. Don't panic, it doesn't mean that will always be the case. But you need to approach the next 6 months as a period where you're giving your body the easiest ride possible. That may mean taking probiotics, bone broths or it could also mean avoiding dairy or other foods, at least until your body has had a chance to heal. If you think you may still be getting gluteny effects keeping a food diary, noting what you eat, when and how you feel would help to track down any further issues.  I too battled through the anxiety, had an all too brief moment of bliss as the diet kicked in, then faced a bumpier recovery period in the weeks that followed. It gets easier but it's still difficult for me from time to time. I tried to articulate some of this recently here, it's a long read but maybe some of it will strike a chord. It will get better and you will become better equipped to deal with it. If you're like me you'll find other things getting better over time that you would never have thought to connect to gluten. Now, I've been exceedlingly nice here and not mentioned the England Rugby drubbing but I can feel my self control beginning to slip. So I'll leave it there   Matt
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      Thanks for the advice Irene. I will look into that book. I know I'm a long away from healed but I got my hopes up when I felt better in that first week, it's just constantly a battle. I am hoping and praying that I get better soon 
    • Celiac - How many symptoms can there be?
      Do you take digestive enzymes and probiotics? That may help. Have you met with a dietician for help figuring out how you're getting glutened?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
