Gluten Free Eating In Ontario?
0

8 posts in this topic

My son was recently diagnosed with celiac. We have been going gluten free at home but we are a family who eats out alot and especially when we are away at the arena for hockey games. But we have been avoiding eating out because it is too overwhelming just yet. But we are heading to Hamilton for a hockey tournament during March break and I'm a little nervous being away from home for a weekend. I have been told that swiss chalet would be a good choice and that pizza pizza and boston pizza have a gluten free pizza. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated espesially for the Hamilton area.

Pizza Nova also have a gluten-free crust available. I have not tried it. The Pizza Pizza one is okay, but I much prefer the Boston Pizza one.

Swiss Chalet is everywhere, and the rotisserie chicken is gluten-free, as is the dipping sauce (but NOT the gravy). The fries are not on the gluten-free list because a few small locations share fryers, but in full-sized ones with table service you should find a dedicated fryer.

McDonalds can provide some options. For breakfast, you can order the Big Breakfast without the English muffin. Some locations will allow you to substitute a second hash brown at no additional cost. The eggs, sausage patties and hash browns are gluten-free. All McDonalds locations, even small ones, have dedicated fryers for potato products.

Mmmmmm Swiss Chalet is gluten free? I am visiting Toronto in July and haven't been back home in many years. My mouth still waters when I think of Swiss Chalet. You can be sure that I will be having all the quarter chicken white with extra dipping sauce that I can get in three days!!!! Their fries are the best.. even better than McD's. Thanks for the good news! :)

Swiss Chalet's fries are fried in the same oil as chicken fingers, and their baked potatoes are not gluten free, they brush them with oil that is also used on items that contain gluten.

I am from Hamilton so I know quite a few places that are gluten free. Jack Astors has a gluten free menu, just be careful with the nachos- they say they are gluten free but they are fried in the same oil as chicken fingers.

The Keg also has a gluten free menu, a bit more fancy but you can get a really nice meal.

Montana's also has gluten free choices, their potato skins are and they are amazing

Wendy's has gluten free choices- chili, baked potatoes, hamburger patty, salads, frostys.

Thanks Brittany we were there on the weekend and had such a good time. We ate right at the hotel to have more time in the pool and just had plain steak and potatoe he loved it. We also hit Boston Pizza and he didn't even want the gluten free pizza he wanted moms special salad with grilled chicken. It is huge and he ate the whole thing practically! lol

That's good! I'm glad you got along well, it really isn't as hard as it seems. I travel a lot too and it is pretty easy to find items to eat! Where are you from?

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?  
    • Oh, and as I mentioned in my own post on pain, xanax. I swear. I tried it just to deal with the occasional panic I had at weird scary symptoms and clueless doctors. I am not a fan of long term use. But I recently found that .25 mg seems to aid with the neuropathic pain. It does not go away, but it helps. 
    • It does sound like a Glutening and you are just a few months into the diet.  It might help if you read our Newbie 101 thread under the "Coping" section.   Here is some information about rice milk: https://www.verywell.com/is-rice-dream-gluten-free-562354 Many, many celiacs are often lactose intolerant temorarily or permanently if you are naturally genetically inclined.  When I am glutened, I lose the ability to digest lactose for a while.   Salad?  Great but it can be rough on a sore gut!  Think soups, stews, easy-to-digest foods that you prepare yourself until you feel better.  Did your folks give you salad after a bout of flu?  Or did you stick with jello and broth?  I am intolerant still after three years to garlic and onions (the lactose resolved, thankfully).  You have a leaky gut (Google zonulin and Dr. Fasano who is a leading celiac researcher to verify that this is true) and that means you can become intolerant to anything (hopefully, just temporarily).   If you are 100% sure that you have had no access to gluten....did you eat out lately?.....then see your doctor.  Remember, celiac disease symptoms can change.  And here is the biggie.....it can take weeks, months or years to heal from celiac disease.  Two months in is nothing, really.  Why?  It takes time to figure out the diet and time for antibodies to come down.  celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder triggerEd by gluten.  once triggered it can go on and on damaging your gut especially with repeated glutenings (accidental or through cross contamination). I hope you feel better soon!  
    • I concur! I literally feel your pain as well. Like, at the moment, lol. Did you have an endo to see inflammation or damage? I am close to begging my GI for carafate or something to coat and protect. How about testing your antibodies to see if they are still rising? I read somewhere here rice milk may not be a good option.  Folks here have also suggested to me to stick with whole foods. Limit processed. Especially stuff that is not certified gluten-free, like chex. I think small amounts of gluten are in processed foids and can add up. I too reacted to lettuce the other day like I was ingesting glass. My sibling  had a food sensitivity panel done and it came back positive for a few things he had been eating a lot of. He can now eat them, but had to cut them out of his diet. Lettuce is probably on mine.  I have been drinking carrot and pomegranate juice,  dandelion root tea with hiney, aloe water, lots of squash, fish. Mild, no garlic, no onions or hot sauce. No coffee. It sucks.  Inflammation can tick off other organs, you mention a "Pain below". Not exactly sure which side, but certainly call your doc Monday. Sooner if the pain increases.
