When I have to eat out at work I opt for places like Red Lobster where I can eat peel and eat shrimp, crab legs or lobster with butter...it's tough to avoid those biscuits though! I have also had them cook a plain chicken breast with plain rice and veggies (no sauce) and I salt and pepper it at the table.

Be careful about rice -- although rice itself is gluten-free, be sure that it's not cooked in chicken broth....make sure it's cooked in water.

If you don't live in New York, you can check for resturants in your area at http://glutenfreerestaurants.org. You said that you prefer to eat out, so I thought this might be helpful. I personally dislike eating out, so I haven't really consulted these lists and can't offer any advice....

I don't cook much either. Do you have a Trader Joe's near you? You can check their website for locations. They have a list of gluten-free foods available at their stores, and on their website. There are some frozen rice bowls, which you can heat in the microwave. Also, some boxed meals by Tasty Bite, which you can easily heat up in the microwave. I like the frozen tamales, too. As you can tell, I'm not very ambitious! :lol: Good luck.

I've been doing this Gluten free diet for awhile now. Everyone has had some wonderful suggestions. When I am not low carbing I llke to take gluten free pasta and do a stir fry and add the pasta. You can add a gluten free sauce and you have a complete meal. Or chilli is always good. I only cook glutenfree so it's been awhile since my hubby has had any gluten, only when we eat out. At a restaurant if I'm not sure of the menu I order A chefs salad. Of course I'm probably not the one to answer your delimma on what to cook because I am an ex chef and cooking doesn't bother me. It's always nice to know what other people do when we have those days that we just don't seem to have enough time to prepare a proper meal. I found some really great helpful information. The only thing I will say is this (I guess I feel compelled to state the obvious) that staying gluten free is essential for us because our lives may depend on it. We cannot digest the protein found in gluten and it plays havoc with our villi, not to mention alot of other things. So please try to find a way to stick with the diet for your own health and well being. Back in 93 and 94 I was angry and decided that I was going to eat what I wanted anyway. It wasn't fair that everyone else could eat anything they wanted and I couldn't. It took a hospital stay, and a lecture from my doctor and dietitian to make me see the light. So don't do what I did, the diet is essential. I'm thru lecturing sorry :( :( I just shiver everytime I hear of someone not adhereing to the diet because I know how sick you can get. Have a great day Cybergran10
