Tuesday I went to Panera. I got the Morrocian soup and the classic cafe salad. Both are gluten-free and I eat there frequently. At the bottom of the cup, I saw pieces of pasta! In the salad, there was a huge cruton. I have had stomach pain, fatigue, and horrible gas. I guess whoever was completing my order by accident put some of the the Vegetarian soup in first. It is time for me to stop eating out and start cooking more. :( It is too much of a risk.

Prior to being diagnosed as Celiac I use to eat there and I loved their food, but now any place with the word "bread" in their name... just isn't for me, too much change of cross contamination. I hope you feel better soon!

Speaking of Panera Bread - during my colon test last week, right before drifting off to neverland, some woman came into the room and sat down at a computer monitor. I couldn't see her but she mentioned something about eating bagels. I had hunger pains from being on the liquid diet the day before so I said 'please be quiet, I'm starving. Everyone laughed and someone said 'sorry we thought you were already out'. So when I came too and my husband came into the recovery cubicle (it's not a room as they call it) I told him I wanted to go straight to Panera for a cinnacrunch bagel. It is the best bagel in the world and it was on my list of foods to have now in case I can't have them ever again soon. I savored every delectable bite! But I know if I have to go gluten-free there is no way I could even walk into Panera again. The smell alone would make me depressed. :(

I used to just love their food, but now I can't bring myself to eat there because of the risk of contamination. I'm too scared to try it.
