I saw online that they have simple and fit vegetable omelette with a side of mixed fruit. It says it doesn't contain gluten or wheat. I want to try it but i want to know if anyone tried it. I don't think im cross-contaminate sensitive because my mother has made me gluten free food on the same griddle she use gluten containing food, and i didnt react. I think at first i was reacting because i had a lot of food sensitives.But now im better.

Just because you didn't react then, doesn't mean you won't now.

 

I wouldn't do it. I've heard that some chains add pancake batter to omelettes and such. Even then, the high risk of CC would not be worth it to me.

I have, while traveling and have not had a problem.  I do remind them that I need fresh eggs, nothing from a container or mix and not the omlette eggs with the batter in them.   Do I take a chance ABSOLUTLY, but I do that anytime I eat out.  

 

Eating out is like russian roulette, I ask the right questions and double check everything, but I still have no control over what happens behind those kitchen doors, or that the person is telling me the truth.   That is just my own experience.  

 

A month ago while traveling I ate the best gluten free pasta I have even had, but when I ordered it, it came out with breadcrumbs on top and had to be remade.   They knew it was gluten free becuase it was marked all over my slip (and the slip was even a different color) and the upcharge for the gluten-free pasta, but it still didn't stop someone from adding breadcrumbs.   So even a place with more awareness than others can make a mistake, thank goodness I caught it before I ate it.   

 

By the way, I eat breakfast out more often than other meals, and I have yet to find a place other than IHOP that adds batter to their omlettes, most of them look at me like I have three heads when I ask that question :mellow:

"Food sensitivities"? is not the same as celiac.

Do you have celiac disease??

 

Because if you have Celiac Disease, you should not risk cross contamination, no matter if 

"you do not react".  You are still sparking the inflammatory process in your gut.

 

As a celiac, I would never eat food made on the same griddle as gluten containing food. Never.

 

That's just unwise.

 

P.S. Hope this sounds "helpful" and not "scolding"  :) because that was not my intention.

My gluten-free husband was traveling and was talking to one of the chef's at one of the hotel chains.  While requesting gluten-free eggs (to be prepared in separate pan), the chef mentioned that the oils he was using had barley in them.  He reminded my husband to make sure future egg orders are fried in butter.  Who would have guessed?

No clue, but the chef actually showed the cooking oil package to my husband.

I wish I knew the name of that oil because that's a new one on me. (and kind of weird.Why would someone put barley in a pure cooking oil?)

 

That was just a rhetorical question, BTW. I often wonder aloud about the crazy things found in food items.  :D Just makes no sense to me.

I think eating at an IHOP if you have Celiac is far more of a Russian roulette than eating out at a high end restaurant that makes all their food from scratch and understand cc.  There are different levels of risk and I still have trouble understanding why anyone would eat at ANY fast food place if they are a diagnosed Celiac.  CC is guaranteed at places like that. The people employed there have zero food training and haven't even been to school for culinary arts....where they learn all about cc.  The only place I eat breakfast out are places that are 100% gluten-free...and there aren't too many of those.

Actually had a similar thing happen to me at a hotel.  Hubby was getting me some scrambled eggs and the chef asked if he wanted toast with that. Hubby said no, it was for his gluten free wife.  The chef said that I couldn't eat the eggs because the oil (or maybe it was butter) they cooked the eggs in had barley in it.  He got a clean pan and made some eggs without the gluten specially for me.  Luckily this chef had a nephew with Celiac and knew what he was talking about.

Thought the above was funny.  It really doesn't do any of those things if you have Celiac.  In fact, it makes many of them worse.

I once had to leave my daughter with my mom for a little while, while I had a flat tire repaired.  Daughter was sick to her stomach at the time but now I can't remember why or if we even figured out why.  For many years she was sick to her stomach a lot. Although she doesn't have celiac, she had a gluten as well as a wheat intolerance.  And one of her symptoms if she ate it was getting sick to her stomach!  I came home to find the two of them fighting big time and daughter was in tears.  My mom was trying to feed her Saltines to settle her stomach.  Neither daughter nor I could get through to my mom that they would *not* settle her stomach!

    • Favorite Hamburger Buns?
      What brand of hamburger buns does everyone like?  I have not yet found one that I like after a few bites.  Maybe it takes time to get used to the different texture/flavor of the gluten-free bun?  I would love to hear if people have found brands that they really enjoy so I can try them! 
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam,  I second everything that Cyclinglady has told you, but just to let you know that I be me intolerant to dairy before my diagnosis for coeliac disease. The 2npositive tests, were they both blood tests or one blood test and one endoscopy? If you are waiting to see them in the Endocsopy department, I think they will want to do one if you haven't had one already and in order to do this and get the correct result, you must eat gluten for at least 6 weeks before you can have the test done, because it is the gluten that causes the auto-immune result.  I too have a thyroid disorder, which was diagnosed long before I had been diagnosed with coeliacs disease. Also a couple of years after diagnosis I became intolerant to soya and xanthan gum and E464 (hydroxypropl methyl cellulose) which is quite often found in gluten free baking produce, including bread. A food diary is a good start, which has also been suggested, but don't jump the gun if you haven't had an endoscopy with biopsies yet. It is still possible to carry on with gluten free and dairy free diet if you are vegetarian, but it makes it a little harder and don't forget dairy free milk is usually fortified with vitamins and minerals.
    • Are The Following Gluten-free?
      You might have a corn intolerance or reacting to something else like gums or preservatives.   Just something to consider.  
    • Blood results - odd
      The OP's hemoglobin levels are below range indicating anemia.  Her ferrtin levels (iron storage) is very low.  Like you, my body processes iron just fine.  It was absorbing it that was my issue due to celiac disease.   This explains it better. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/anemia/symptoms-causes/dxc-20183157 Excellent recommendation regarding the Vitamin D.  Other vitamins and minerals should be checked too.  What was odd, and perhaps you can clarify since you are in GB, can you not purchase iron supplements in a drugstore like Boots?    
    • A good diet for avoiding type 2 diabetes
      Fat.  Seriously.  It is what keeps you satiated and does NOT raise blood sugar.  I have been on a Low Carb, High Fat diet for 2-1/2 years.  I eat to my "meter".  I did a lot of testing the first month to see which foods raise my blood glucose levels (no surprise, everyone is different).  Buy a cheap meter and strips at Walmart and test it yourself.   I eat protein in normal amounts (too much and the blood can convert it to glucose), veggies, nuts, dairy, and some fruit.  I do cheat on this diet, but NEVER on the gluten-free diet.  My blood sugar has been close to normal ever since.   Butter melted on my veggies.  Heavy cream.  Avocados, olive oil, meat drippings, bacon.    Yum!   Finally, the American Diabetic Association is recommending this diet for some people.  Why not for all?  They thinks it is too hard to maintain it (they should try maintaining a gluten-free diet!) and to be honest, there is not a one size fits all for diabetics just like celiac disease (we all have our various tolerances beside the need to be gluten-free).   My GP disapproved at first.  Now, he says to keep doing what I am doing.  My cholesterol levels are terrific!  (Normal compared to being super low before I was diagnosed).   I started this LCHF diet because I know that I want to avoid medications for diabetes (insulin excluded).    My gut just can not take it.   I have been weaning my family off all the excess sugar that is so prominent in the Standard American..British..you name it .... diet.  I felt best when I went on this diet after being gluten-free for a year.   So, do your research.  Do what is best for you -- not for the herd!

      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.
      https://youtu.be/IU6jVEwpjnE Thank You,
