Hi, I was widowed young, 1 1/2 years ago, at 37. I'm now 38 and just as I was finding out that I have genes for celiac, as well as soy and dairy intolerance -- I met a nice fellow here in Atlanta, where I live. He spent most of a Braves game recently combing the stadium for some sort of gluten-free food for me. :D

We had a GREAT experience at Rathbun's in Inman Park -- they have two desserts that are gluten- and soy-free, and one of those is dairy-free, too -- the mango sorbet. They were so NICE about it, the wait staff and the chefs; very happy to oblige.

But other than that and Outback Steakhouse, geez, eating out is so hard. Is there anyone else from Atlanta who can recommend flexible, understanding restaurants here?

Thanks.

I've heard that Ruth'sChris Steakhouse is accommodating to those on a gluten free diet

When we go eat out, I tend to stick to Mexican Restaurants, or Outback. Ritter's in Marietta is also aware of celiac, and recently hosted a luncheon that was strictly gluten free. (for the members of one of the local celiac support groups). I live in Marietta, so I rarely venture into the city... but let's see... oh, I went to a play at the Shakespeare Tavern (dinner theater) and I contacted the chef ahead of time, and she said that one of her friends is celiac, and there were several things on the menu that are gluten-free.

Wow, thank you SO much. I appreciate the tips and will try these places! I should make a list of the stuff at Rathbun's that is gluten-free, too. Will call them and get them to add to what I know and post it.

Thank you again.

You are very welcome! I am seriously enjoying the challenge of finding more restaurants that are celiac friendly... I missed being able to just stop at any restaurant and eat! But I don't miss being sick!

I think that fancier places would be more accommodating and careful about making food gluten free. Some of the fancier places I have been have already had celiacs come to their resturants, so they were already familiar with the precations. At restaurants, I just say "I am celiac and no bread or gluten can touch my food or I will get very sick". I ask for my food to be plain, unless the sauce is gluten-free. I think the more we speak up and familiarize people about celiac, the better eating out will be!

I used to be terrified of eating out, but I've recently given it a try and I've only had good experiences! B)

What about having a date where you cook together? Something that requires teamwork, like making sushi, or gluten-free lasagna? My friends and I, in college, had a great time - socially - making sushi together before eating it.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
