My husband was just diagnosed this week, is there a site, book, anything with restaurant listings and their gluten-free options? Also, any recommendations of the best sites, cookbooks and foods. Thanks! :unsure: [QUOTE

I have not gone to any restaurants yet, I'm still to afraid. I have called a couple of them in our area (Chicago area) and if you just explain to the manager what the allergy is, I do believe they should accomodate you without any problems. I have a restaurant card that is to be given to the chef explaining what you can and cannot have. If you'd like one, or anyone else for that matter, just let me know and I'll send you one.

The best cookbook that I have purchased is by Roben Ryberg. It has all different types of recipes from main courses to deserts, and so far what I have tried I LOVE!!! I have tasted many breads that have been made with rice flour and they have all tasted very gritty and are heavy and hard as a rock. But in theis cookbook there is a buttermilk bread that is so delicious.

I was just diagnosed in March amd I am still testing the waters. I have found that Trader Joes, I don't know if you have one in your area, has a list in the store or Gluten Free Foods, and so far I have purchased many things on the list and have been very happy.

I hope all this info can help you. But I will say, just looking at this website and getting the encouragement from all who are here, is the best help that you can get. I thank everyone for all there support. If it wasn't for them, I would be completely lost.

Good Luck to you and your husband!

Well, there's a post that contains all the gluten-free chain and fastfood restaurants (PF Changs, TJI Fridays, McDonalds, etc.).

You might find http://www.glutenfreerestaurants.org helpful....depending where you live -- they have really strict regulations to make it on their list so you know the restaurant has to be pretty safe.

Hi celiac3270, Thank for the listing, but I live in Illinois and I am not seeing any restaurants here. Is there a different website that I can look at?

Thanks
Linda

The Yahoo forum for Celiac Disease, http://health.groups...roup/SillyYaks/ , has over 100 restaurants listed and is also a good source of other information. You can log in as a member - it's very easy - and go to the files for an abundance of information.
Also, the Delphi Forum, http://forums.delphi...om/celiac/start has some great information as well.
These are the three sites I use for information - - each has a very different flavor, different interests, etc. Try them out.

I'll add a warning to this. Particularly if your husband has been sick, do NOT go and start eating out right away. Eating out even at good places carries a high risk of cross contamination. Even eating processed foods bought from a store carries that risk. Start easy with good fresh meat, vegetables and fruit.

I'll second that, richard. Sometimes you just can't help it, but limit eating out as much as you have the power to.

Yep.....also, if you get contaminated eating out, you might not know it (many people have symptoms weeks or months into the diet).....if you wait till you feel 100% better, you'll know when you get contaminated......much better than getting sick constantly and not knowing what from........
