Steak And Shake Southwest Chicken Salad
0

7 posts in this topic

So what am I missing? Is the gluten in the ranch dressing? The web site says the ranch dressing is gluten free but it also says there is wheat in the southwest chicken salad. I'm a little lost here.

"Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad

Grilled Chicken Fillet, Lettuce Blend, Pico de Gallo (Tomatoes, Red Onions, Jalapeno Peppers, Cilantro, Lime Juice), Corn, Black Beans, Fried Tortilla Strips, Cheddar-Jack Cheese, Chipotle Sauce, Lime, and Ranch Dressing.

Contains: wheat, milk, soy, eggs"

Maybe the " buttermilk ranch dressing " listed as gluten free is different than the ranch dressing in the salad?

It's not a complete ingredient list. Do they list the ingredients for the tortilla strips, ranch dressing, grilled chicken & chipolte sauce in another place? Doubt the black beans are just beans - usually they have salt at least. Who knows what is in these items.

That might be. Something sure got me and that's all I ate that day. After that I spent the rest of the day in pain and didnt eat anything else. Starting to feel better today, but I still have a ways to go to feel good again. I was so amazed at how good I felt after I went gluten free that when I started to have pain yesterday, I panicked. When i could not identify exactly what caused it, i was affraid that i was going back to the way i felt before and would have to start all over again trying to find a "fix". I've only been gluten-free for a little over a month and have not eaten out but a couple times. This is the second time that I've messed up. The first time I knew what I had eaten right away, but when I couldn't pin point a cause it worried me. The next time we try to eat out, we'll go somewhere else, at least until I get better at this.

i just read the title of this thread to my hubs and said "am i eating that?"  and he said 'NOOOOO'  lolz - i probably will never eat any sort of fast food again.  it only takes one mistake to knock you down, and (in my opinion) they don't pay fast food slingers enough $$ to care enough to be ever so careful not to get crumbs, etc, (harmless in their minds, in their defense) onto your food without you even knowing it.  i *do* still eat out, but i am picky! picky! and it's not that often.   do you have any other choices of restaurants?

There is a Bob Evans near by and I have eaten there once and they were great. I didn't have any problems. I don't think I'll be going back to steak and shake anymore.

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
