Traveling To The Grand Canyon, Where To Eat
0

3 posts in this topic

Hi all - My husband and I are taking a trip to Las Vegas in September.  I am all set with the many food choices there. 

 

However I am nervous about the 2 days we will spend traveling to the Grand Canyon.  We are staying overnight in Tusayan, Arizona and the hotel has a fridge.   I know to pack a cooler and that there is a Safeway in Williams.  But we also want to dine out.  Can anyone recommend or know of a restaurant that is in Tusayan and vicinity that would work?

 

Thanks so much ! :)

Will you have a microwave?  If so, you can buy a rotisserie chicken at Safeway (check the label to see if it's still gluten-free).   Grab a bag of self steaming micro veggies, salad, and potatoes.  I did this in Williams, but at the time we were in an RV.  There are a few restaurants in Williams, but not sure how many are gluten-free.  You can always order soft tacos (corn tortillas) and ask about the meat and possible gluten.  Don't eat any fried tacos or chips because of cc issues (usually)

 

 If you want to eat out go to the El Tovar Hotel in the park for plenty of gluten-free options.  You must walk around this historic hotel when you're on the south rim.  It was built by the Fred Harvey Company (remember, Judy Garland in the movie "The Harvey Girls"?)  Folks used to disembark on the old Santa Fe train for food and accommodations.  The hotel is still run by the Fred Harvey Company.    Besides the great dining room, there is a café which also has gluten-free options.

 

Have fun!  Bring water and DON'T HIKE DOWN TO THE CANYON DURING THE DAY IN SEPTEMBER!  If you must go to the bottom, take a night hike and bring plenty of water, and wear headlamps and bring flashlights.  Sturdy boots, pants are a must since rattlers are out, along with scorpions and tarantulas.  It's an experience you'll never forget!

 

If you're going through Kingman when it's time to eat check out In-n-Out.  Dedicated fryer for fries.  They'll wrap your burger in lettuce (protein style) and tell them you have an allergy.  It's written on the ticket and they'll grill it on a separate grille and change their gloves.  Stop by the visitor's center there as it's all about Route 66.  It's well worth it and you can even bring your dog inside.  There's an ghost town off US 93 (coming from Hoover Dam to Kingman) call Chloride.  It's a fun stop and we at lunch there and didn't get glutened but it's not as good as eating at In-n-Out considering the options.  If you have time, visit Oatman off old Rt 66 (follow the signs) another Ghost Town famous for their wild donkeys/mules.  Plus, you'll pass Cool Springs which inspired Radiator Springs in the movie "Cars". 

 

Have lots of fun!

Hi - Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my post!  You gave me such great information!

I am adding the El Tovar hotel to my list for when we go to the Grand Canyon.  We had already planned to stop in Kingman and Williams so I will add your tips from there as well.

I also appreciate your information regarding the Grand Canyon and Route 66.  We definitely will check out the ghost towns.

 

Thank you again!

    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      Hello... 3 weeks ago I was diagnosed with Celiac. Looking at the various flours used to replace traditional flour is a bit overwhelming. I have a Retsel grain mill and I'm considering milling my own gluten-free flour. I have a few questions. First and foremost, would it be cost effective? Obviously, buying flour already processed is more convenient but terribly expensive. Does anyone here have experience with how accessible the ingredients are to do the milling yourself? Rice is readily accessible as well as many varieties of beans. What about milling coconut flour and some of the more exotic flours? Secondly, I'm wondering if milling at home will produce a fine enough product to be comparable to what can be purchased in store. Any experiences or suggestions would be appreciated.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      A very good suggestion GFinDC. I have thought for some time that I should have made the title of the topic night vision celiac because it may have nothing to do with celiac disease even if it started at the same time. Key words are so important. I will search first and may post on one of these sites later. I have now searched quite extensively and have not so far discovered anything helpful except that if you google night vision scotomas you get to this topic!
    • Anxiously waiting
      I'll check withthe Doctor tomorrow. So weird coz i feel ok today. In a weird way i hope the endoscopy is positive at least then I'll know what the issue is lol.
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Sorry  To give you more info I had the endoscopy because I was diagnosed last year with Barretts Esophagus and gastritis. I've been on medication since but still had issues so they went back in to check how everything was going and to make sure the Barretts hadn't turned into anything nasty. I had a celiac blood test in 2014 ( negative) and the endoscopy in 2015 didn't show lymphocytes in the duodenum well that's if he biopsied that. I also had a colonoscopy with this years endo and all of that came back fine - I thought if I was celiac that would be affected also? As far as I know the biopsy only showed lymphocytes (white blood cells?) in the duodenum no damage to the villi but he used many big words that I didn't understand so he could have said more. With the blood test all I know is that I had a blood test for Celiac - I didn't know there were different tests for it. I'm a complete newbie with all this stuff so I just don't get what questions to ask him.  I'm so impatient I just want to know. I have a big family, a husband that is FIFO and I'm a stresser. 
    • Help interpreting biopsy results after gluten-free for 7 months
      Hi there, Just got my follow up biopsy results after being dx with celiac 7 months ago (dx with blood test + biopsy). Could anyone help interpret these new results as the doc wasn't much help... Basically he said good news is it looks like gut has healed up due to gluten-free diet. Bad news is that he has no explanation as to why I still have all of my symptoms.  Any help interpreting the attached results would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

      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.
