Salt Lake City Area

4 posts in this topic

We're going to be near Taylorsville and West Valley City area for 5 to 8 nights with a family of 5, 2 of us gluten free. We will be staying in a hotel, and we'll be eating all our meals either in our room (lunch) or out at restaurants (dinner). For breakfast, the 2 of us that are gluten-free will just bring gluten-free cereal and eat that while the others eat at the hotel breakfast. I also plan to bring my toaster, so we can make toast in our room. There is a microwave and a small refrigerator. I was hoping some of you might have some suggestions as to safe places we can eat and also some stores we can shop at to get things to make in our room! I have never been to Salt Lake City before! This is a business trip for my husband. Thanks so much!!

Your in luck for buying gluten free food in Taylorsville. There is a completly gluten free grocery store in Taylorsville:

Against The Grain

2292 West 5400 South

Taylorsville, Utah 84118

Phone: (801) 955-4418

We shop there when we are in town.

We travel to SLC about 2 or 3 times a year, and here are some places we eat at while we are there. Of course you have your standard places Like ChickFilA (there was one realy close to our hotel and we ate there several times) and Outback and PFChangs. There is also a pizza place we like Pier 49 Pizza;

Here are the sites for the resturants;

Outback - The one we visit is in Sandy, but thats not too far from Taylorsville

I haven't eaten at the ZTejas in SLC, but the ones in Phoneix are good, but limited menu.

Great place for Hamburgers and French Fries and there is one close to Taylorsville

The PFChangs we visit frequently when in SLC. It is downtown, and they always do a great job of having our meals completly gluten-free...

Also, if you are down in the Provo/Orem area, there is a good BBQ place we like..

Wallaby's Smokehouse

Hope you have a great trip. I know traveling can be daunting when trying to find gluten-free places to eat...and you want to feel good on your trip! We bought the Udi's bread at Against the Grain and kept it in our fridge at the motel and had sandwhiches alot. Also, the people at that store might be able to give you a list of the resturants in the area that have gluten free menus. When we visited last time, they gave us a list.

Have fun!

You might call ahead of time and check the hours of Against The Grain because they are not open like regular grocery stores. It is in a strip mall, in the corner, but easy to find. There is a lot to do in SLC, and the canyons and mountains are beautiful, so hope you enjoy your stay. Good luck!

    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Hi!  I know I'll never forget the day I was told after an endo- and colonoscopy that I indeed had celiac disease.  I immediately went to a Trader Joe's grocery store and bought some gluten-free things to eat. about a month later I had a Total meltdown in my car outside a grocery store---feeling So Sorry for myself!   I cried and said I'll Never to able to eat what I want to again! that was 10 years ago and gluten-free foods have come a long way.... I love having a gluten-free everything bagel and delicious gluten-free 'Oreo cookies'----neither of which there were 10years ago. Everyone who has responded so far have Great Tips!  The best news is that your Diet will cure you!  I do not know of any other condition where this is true!! BTW---some of your friends and family Will understand and will make sure you aren't hung out to dry foodwise........and others just won't/can't understand and will think that just avoiding bread is enough..... Be kind, but don't risk your health to be nice to someone who forgot or doesn't understand. keep reading!  Keep trying different gluten-free foods to find what you like!   Best wishes!!  
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      It has never even been turned on. As I recall, it is capable of milling oats as well as popcorn. I don't know about coconut or other nuts but I can find out.
    • Milling vs buying gluten-free flour
      The very first question is.... Was that Retsel grain mill used for gluten before your diagnosis? If the answer is yes then the 2nd question is can it be COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED and cleaned in every single nook & cranny? If the answer to that is no, then you can't use that grain mill because you will be continually cross contaminating yourself.  3rd question: Will that mill do things like coconut? The grains that are oily. Some mills won't. Better check that out. I got a NutriMill & it can not do oily grains or things like coconut. No oats as they're oily, same for nuts. Rice flour it does a great job on & gets it as fine as I can buy it.
    • Food tolerance issues post-diagnosis
      Boy, you've sure had a rough time of it! My heart goes out to you! I love your positive attitude about coping until your villi heal more. THAT is your greatest ally in this journey. Okay, now to your problems...... Your gut is still damaged. You aren't healed yet - you know that as you've stated it. It can be really wonky for the first 6 months to a year. It's like being on a roller coaster ride & you can have good days & sucko days & good weeks & weeks that are the absolute pits. My advice would be to ditch all the processed gluten free foods. You'll heal faster & have less problems eating "whole foods" --- fresh or frozen fruits & veggies, meats & dairy as long as you can tolerate it. Forget the corn flakes & rice krispies. They may be gluten free but it's still processed food & therefore full of all kinds of chemicals & preservatives & stuff you don't need. We always tell people to spend at least the 1st 6 months avoiding the processed foods. Time enough to get into those after you heal right? How about for breakfast you have a couple eggs, either fried or pan scrambled. Some fruit -- bananas, pears, whatever floats your boat, a glass of milk, some yogurt. You may need to have well cooked foods for a while & that means mushy veggies as well as fruit. From the sound of the extent of damage you had I would say that's where you ought to be at this point. You don't want to make things any harder on your gut than necessary for the time being. You do have one great big thing in your favor & that's your age. You're young & will by all rights heal up much faster than us old geezers who weren't diagnosed until our 50's, 60's & 70's after a lifetime of damage. Please read our Newbie 101 & follow the links contained within the threads. This will give you a ton of valuable information. Just click on it:  
    • Biopsy confirmed?
      Okay, this makes more sense now. Was the celiac test in 2014 part of the checking to find out what was wrong with you which resulted in the Barrets dx?  NO, a colonoscopy will not diagnose celiac disease at all. The biopsies for celiac disease are taken in the small intestine not the colon. You need to get your records, both past & present. If you could post them here then we'd have a much better idea of what's going on and be more able to tell you what you might be looking at. When we say you might not have been given the right celiac blood panel, we mean the FULL, CURRENT panel and not just a primary screening. The screening is good but it does miss celiacs. We have members who tested negative on all but the DgP portions so when one has a situation like yours, you need to cover all the bases & have the complete panel done. Here it is: Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgA
      Anti-Gliadin (AGA) IgG
      Anti-Endomysial (EMA) IgA
      Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG
      Total Serum IgA   
      Also can be termed this way: Endomysial Antibody IgA
      Tissue Transglutaminase IgA 
      GLIADIN IgG
      GLIADIN IgA
      Total Serum IgA 
      Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and IgG   If you post your results on the blood work make sure to post the reference ranges listed because different labs have different ranges. It would be imperative to know if the doc took biopsies for celiac when he was doing the endoscopy. How many & where exactly from? Some docs just rely on visual & that's not good enough to dx celiac disease. Biopsies are the only way.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      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.
