Well a Big Texas welcome to ya! I live in Rockwall....a growing town just East of Dallas.

Denton will have the usual Outback Steakhouse, Wendy's, and other reasonable chains so you will do fine.

I do not go to Denton often but if you are going to be in Texas find you a good Steakhouse. I have had great experiences and Texas is know for good beef.

If you come as far down as Frisco, Kangaroo Court was very receptive when I was at Stonebriar Mall and I had a fantastic steak and steamed brocolli there. Yummy!

Have a good time and enjoy a good steak. ;)

That is where I live :D Although I must admit that I just moved to Denton and I and new at eating gluten-free. I have gone to the OUtback and they do have a gluten-free menu if you ask and it was great! Also I have eaten at a place called Bistro cafe or something like that they have some unique salads and I had success eating them. Be sure to let them know what you can and can't have. It is a small place so they make sure you get what you want. I went with my in-laws and husband and they all loved their food.

It is off I-35E and L00P 288

Go south on Loop 288 and it is in the Albertson's shopping center. I think it is called Bistro something (sorry I am not sure) There is also a Chilis in the same parking lot, although I haven't eaten there I hear they have gluten-free foods also.

That is only about a mile from where my house is :D

I hope you enjoy your stay in Denton Texas!!!

Thank you very much! As much help as I can get. My family will be with me, and they will be eating whatever, and I just want things to be simple if I can.

Laura, I am not sure if you are famililar with the area but Denton is close to Fort Worth and Dallas and everything in between. Almost any restaurant you can think of is around here. I am sure you and your family will find plenty of good choices.

enjoy your visit,

kayla

    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!
    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
