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!

    • I'm glad I found these forums!  I will spend some more time this evening reading through them.  But I wanted to get my question out there just to see if anyone else might have answers quicker than I can sift through the forum for them.      I've been feeling terrible for about a year, and after an elimination diet last month, figured out that if nothing else, gluten/wheat is a problem.  After lots of research, I abandoned the elimination diet and added gluten back in, so that I could get tested for Celiac.   I was off gluten for 3 weeks, from mid-June until early July.  I've had it back in my diet for almost 3 weeks now.    My question is this: Since I was off gluten for 3 weeks, and now back on for almost 3, is that enough time on to yield a positive Celiac blood test, if that indeed is what I have?  All the research I've done says 4-6 weeks for a gluten challenge, but is that really necessary if I was only not eating it for 3 weeks?  I am desperate to get this testing done and over with.  I feel terrible all the time and getting through the day is a struggle.  My doctor ran allergy panels already and everything came back clear except for a mild wheat allergy.  So if nothing else, I'll have to give up wheat for sure at the end of all this.  I get the feeling she doesn't know a ton about Celiac though, so I'm doing a lot of the research on my own. Any advice or information would be so appreciated! 
    • Hi Michael, That's quite a spike in blood pressure!  I haven't tested that myself and don't want to if it means I have to eat gluten.  Blood pressure testing to identify food reactions is something that has come up before.  It sounds like it might be possible but I don't know how much study has been done on it.  Probably not much since it is such a simple, straight forward idea. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Megan, Did the doctor test you for celiac disease?  You really shouldn't go gluten-free until all the testing for celiac disease is completed.  It is a little odd for a doctor to tell you to go gluten-free for no reason IMHO.  Did he/she explain the reason for it? Personally, I have learned over the years what I can eat safely and what I can't.  Occasionally I get hit but it is rare.  Simplifying your diet is a good first step.  Avoiding processed foods for a while and dairy also is good.  I suggest any change you make last for a month at least. Then try the food again. If you are eating 100 random ingredients/foods each day it is hard to figure these things out.  If you reduce it to a much smaller number of foods then things become simpler. Welcome to the forum!

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
