Delightfully Gluten-free
0

11 posts in this topic

Being gluten-free isn't always fun. In fact it is hardly a blessing at all. I have been gluten-free for 10 years now and I sometimes I struggle with eating well. Usually I live on corn tortillas and cheese. I have also not been so lucky to live in a city with an abundance of gluten-free stores such as people in New York or Los Angeles get to experience. But occasionally I have the pleasure of finding something gluten-free that had been right under my nose for years.

The purpose of this post is for everyone to share a hopeful story that shows that being gluten-free is becoming more popular as more people find out about it. So if you have a story of being delightfully surprised by something gluten-free please share. I will go first.

I was at a restaurant near my house called Rose's Deli and they had a "wheatless chocolate torte" on the menu. We asked the waitress to bring back the ingredients hoping that maybe, just maybe I could eat it. She came back and said, "The cook said it's gluten-free....whatever that means."

Please share...I would love to hear.

I have a couple stories taking place in restaurants.

One time we were eating at PF Changs. (chinese restaurant) and our waitress walked up to us and we asked for the gluten-free menu. she was very familiar with it in fact she was on the gluten-free diet herself and said that tons of kids who come here are also gluten-free.

okay the second story.

We decided to eat out at Outback once we found out alot of their food is gluten-free. We told our waiter about celiac and took our orders. He walked away saying "Ill come back shortly with some bread." We started laughing and he rushed back apologizing and laughing as well :rolleyes: .

Now were in Oklahoma (vaccation) to visit my grandparents. Theres a little town called Woodward that had a whole food store full of gluten free food.Boy was my mom surprised.

Hey!

Well, I do not know if you know this, but some places there are whole restaurants that are gluten-free!!! I was so excited to here that, especially since there is one in NYC because I am going on vacation there and I thought that I wouldn't be able to go out. :D

Also, there is WONDERFUL gluten-free bread at Whole Foods, but it is only served in some states (unfortunately not CA, where I live :( ) But its really good. B)

Yeah, there's an entirely gluten free restaurant north of Seattle, if anybody around here hasn't heard of it. Kaili's Kitchen in Lynnwood. I their website is wheatlessinseattle.com. It's very nice not to have to explain everything and just order a hamburger and fries or chicken strips. They also sell take away products like bread and stuff. Unfortunately, I'm over an hour away so I've only been once.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
