Hey gang,

I am headed to Knott's Berry Farms tomorrow with my little brother.

Is there any place in there that accomodates gluten free folks?

Hello,

I don't know anywhere inside the park where you can eat safely, but directly across the street from Knotts Berry Farm, at 7971 Beach Blvd: NW corner of Beach Blvd and La Palma, is the Claim Jumper restaurant. You can go to their website, claimjumper.com and print a menu to take with you. Watch out, the menu doesn't always specify that a dish automatically comes with bread, so the first thing I ordered had a piece of garlic toast laying across it. The food is good and the portions are large. The waiter there told us he has run across the street to Knotts, gone on 3 rides, and been back within his lunch hour. So it is pretty close but you still can drive.

Have fun at Knotts!

p.s.

Please let us know if you actually find somewhere in the park where you can eat. I doubt it. There is Mrs. Knotts, the Fried Chicken and Boysenberry pie place, and lots of little places, but I couldn't eat in the amusement park the last time I went.

Well,

I made the trip.

First off, there is not a huge amount of choices for us there. However, I was able to find a small restaurant in the front of the park that served burgers and lay's chips. I ordered the burger with no bun.

I actually brought a backpack in the park and had some glutino cereal bars, 4 pieces of gluten free bread and some perky-o's in a ziploc bag. I was fine.

The burger was actually pretty darn good! I also had some kosher dill pickles at another place down the way from the burger place.

In addition, I drank probably 5 bottled waters and 2 vitamin waters.

Grand total for 2 burgers, 2 bags of chips, 5 bottled waters and 2 vitamin waters = $51

LOL, what a rip off...

Hope you had a good time anyway! I only go there in I think certain days in October or November, when my husband and I get in free because he is a Vet. It is too bad food choices are so limited at the Knotts. I hear better things about Disneyland.

I'm going to Knott's on Nov. 16th and did a bit of research. They do have a Johnny Rocket's in the park and I know that they will accommodate us. I'm not sure about any of the other places yet.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
