I will be traveling out of town and I am wondering about eating breakfast out. Are there any restaurants that you have had any experience with? Thanks for the info!

You don't mention where you're going, which would make it easier to make suggestions.

Amazingly enough, I've had goof luck at Waffle House. They make the food right there in front of you and the place where they make eggs and bacon is away from the waffles and pancakes. It's also a homey type place where they really care about the customer. The menu states that they use Hormel bacon and sausage. I also usually get an omelette and grits. Be very vlear with the waitress that toast can't touch your food, because they put toast on every dish.

I'd feel pretty safe with eggs, fruit, bacon (not at McDonald's, though, McDonald's bacon has wheat starch) and sausage almost anywhere. Check on the brand but virtually all bacon and sausage is gluten-free.

If you end up at an IHOP, beware of the omelettes. They put pancake batter in them to fluff them up. You CAN get an egg white or egg replacer omelette, though. Or maybe they'll crack some eggs just for you.

I like Bob Evans. I often get the fried mush with eggs, bacon, etc. Closest thing to bread with breakfast I've discovered.

I also go to Cracker Barrel. You can get fried potatos (not the potato cassarole), eggs, pork chops and pinto beans.

:) I just went to the Denny's Restaurant site and they have the listing of all of their food and the allergens. I am going for breakfast on Sunday, so I hope everything will be okay.

Thanks for all your suggestions! I went out of town to Phoenix, Arizona and ate breakfast at a Denny's restraunt and did great! I had hash browns, eggs and bacon. No reactions and they were very accomadating.

I just almost had a real problem with Denny's while traveling in Oklahoma City. I have eaten the Nachos without getting sick, but, last time, I got very ill.

This time, I asked first, because we were traveling from St. Louis, MO to McAllen, TX. This is a 1200 mile trip, no time to be fighting a gluten attack!

Anyway, I asked the waitress to check with the kitchen to see if they were safe or not, because I have had good and bad experiences eating them. She came back out and told me they were safe, and I KNEW she did NOT understand me at all, and had NO clue!!! I then got the manager who checked in a book and found that they are NOT safe. The manager said she was new, her 2nd day. I told the manager she really needed to educate the cooks and waitresses to refer questions like that to a manager. Anyway, I found a safe meal to eat and all is well.

BUT! I just checked with the website and they have an allergen list available. HOWEVER, they report Rice Krispies to be safe, and I know they contain malt flavoring which makes them NOT safe. I sent them an e-mail and will see what that brings.

Thanks for listening!

I have also had good experiences with several Waffle Houses. You just have to make sure that your waitress understands that white bread has wheat in it! My local IHOP has also been very accomodating, though a little more limiting than Waffle House and significantly more expensive.

Yes, Waffle House (down here in The South) is good as long as you watch them! Sometimes they use the same rags with everything and let things touch, so watch.

McDonalds is good, too. Especially since they are all over.

I really like the places that have fruit that you can pick yourself . . .I am big on bananas and apples.

Depending on the city you can find out in advance if there are places who cater to Celiacs, like in more major cities.

Talking and making your problem known is good so that they can help and make sure your order doesn't get screwed up.

    • Should I get tested for Celiac Disease?
      I wanted to come back and give an update. I decided to have my rash biopsied when I got home from vacation and the results thankfully came back positive for DH. What really prompted me to go ahead with that was how reliably the rash would worsen within mere hours of eating gluten. I figured it would be the easiest way for me to definitely know and since I could actually see the damage I was pretty confident by eating gluten until the appointment something would show up. Luckily my experiments of going multiple days here and there in the weeks prior to the test didn't effect the results. (Obviously that probably isn't recommended and I was taking a chance at inconclusive results by going ahead with it so I'm fortunate I got the positive results I expected.) The dermatologist wants me to see a GI doc but for now I'm holding off on doing that because of all the reasons I mentioned previously. It is my understanding that DH qualifies me for the tax write off for food and the small intestine biopsy would just be a technicality and see how much intestinal damage is present. I will follow up with my family doc soon to do blood work and check for any deficiencies. Since finding out I've done pretty well. I did discover gluten in my shampoo after wondering why my elbows had flared up when I hadn't eaten gluten that day. I had gluten unintentionally this weekend in some sushi and I'm recovering from that at the moment but it hasn't been too bad compared to how I've felt most days for the last year and a half while eating it. I did connect with a lady in my ED recovery group who has celiac and we have been talking about navigating gluten free in the context of recovery/remission from anorexia. I think part of me was scared I'd become afraid of food again but I think as long as my only rule is to replace gluten I will be fine.  Now my latest gluten discovery is in my home hair color. I was about to color my grays when I read the label and noticed one ingredient was wheat gluten. I guess I'll exchange that for something different. If I was getting it done at a salon I probably wouldn't worry because of the way they rinse it out with your head tipped back in the bowl but at home I think it's harder to keep the water from running into my mouth accidentally. If I hadn't had the shampoo incident I probably wouldn't be so cautious. I'm sure some people can relate to trying to get well and not wanting to make things worse again! I hope everyone here is doing well!
    • Can U A Bone Marrow Donor?
      Another reply to an old thread. We have a family friend whose son (aged 4) is struggling with leukemia. I went through the initial process (online screening question/answer form) of donating bone marrow, but was immediately rejected by the automatic screening due to my Celiac Disease. 
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      It can be difficult to refuse food from others but, with time, you can learn to not let it bother you.  Yeah, easier said than done, I know.  But your sense of humor came through in places in your post so use that to make "empowered no BS responses"!  
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      This is a common sense answer!  I used to eat Godiva years ago and was dismayed they had no interest in appealing to anyone with a food allergy/intolerance.  That's OK......Ghirardelli chocolates are very good about divulging what they do and most of their chocolates are gluten-free.  Again, you have to understand label reading and investigate further, if need be.  Turns out, I think their chocolates are just as good, if not better.
    • Children and Gluten Freedom
      How do you know when your child has gluten sensitivity, gluten intolerance, or celiac disease? If gluten issues run in your family and you know there is a predisposition to having problems with gluten in foods, then you may be alert to signs that it has been passed on to your child.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
