Hi -

Any suggestions for quick meals out for my 5 year old? Super picky so will only do grilled cheese and PBJ or a cheeseburger with no bun. Right now we do Jason's, Wendy's, and 5 Guys but looking for other options. I was surprised that so many places add wheat to their burgers!

BTW he is gluten free bc of his autism, not celiac. Small amounts of gluten doesnt seem to bother him, just large quantity, so we are not overly concerned about cross contamination.

Thanks!

Red Robin? He can eat the fries, too! If he will do Asian Pei Wei or PF Chang's.

In n out burger has always been great - only gluten there are the buns. Fries, shakes.

BJ's has great pizzas.

Will he try spaghetti? Old Spaghetti Factory has been doing gluten-free pasta for several years.

Kelley, where do you live ( if you want to say)? Some places are in certain parts of the country. beauJos is a pizza place with gluten-free cheese bread which is like a grilled cheese. I had one that only ate grilled cheese but he would eat cheese toast. Minskys pizza in the KC area.

I have found that if you take an older " kid", the younger one will try more options. My kids are now the older ones for their little cousin who will try it if M or J like it!

We are in Orlando so sadly no In n Out or Red Robin for us :(. He won't do Asian food either. We've actually been working in therapy to increase his food options and he's come a long long way but still very limited.

Honestly, we pack all our food.  Cheaper and healthier, if a lot more time consuming. :)  Ah, tradeoffs.

We usually pack our food too. But it's nice to have options when I don't have my act together. I love that Jason's has gluten free bread and wish other chains would have that option.

    • Thanks a lot for your advice and the link. I will surely check upon GCED. But, doesn't a negative HTTG (can't do IgA ttg as IgA deficiency) result mean that I am not exposed to gluten ? 
    • Thank you for going through my long post and responding. I have been both dairy and gluten-free free for 10 months now. Yes, even I was worried about other food allergies. I mentioned it to my GI doc and asked if I need food allergy test to eliminate other allergens. He said, food allergy tests give a lot of false positives and are not accurate. He said: not everything is because of food allergy and it's refractory celiac which is causing issues as the jejunum biopsy, done recently, is showing villous flattening.

      My doubt: 1. If I have so much damage in my small intestine (villous flattening) then how was I keeping fine for 6-7 months ( eating eggs, soy, rice and meat) - was constantly losing weight though - but was able to work out regularly - not much fatigue. 2. If it is other food allergens ( out of mentioned allergens, I take eggs, soy chunks, almonds only) why does it happen only few times and not always - I keep well for 7-8 days and then fall sick again - this without any change in diet.  
    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!
