Going To Pheonix - Restaurant Suggestions?
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi!

My family rented a house for a week in the Queen's Creek area (Pheonix) and I am looking for some good restaurant suggestions please. I already know that Sprouts is great for gluten-free and so is Whole Foods, but what lunch meat and hot dogs are safe to eat in the U.S? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

:D Paula

Boar's Head meat it gluten free. It is sold at Fry's and Bashas grocery stores.

If you can make it to Tempe you should check out Picazzo's. They have a HUGE gluten free menu, everything from pizza, to pasta, to bread. They serve gluten free bread with appetizers if you order the gluten free version of the app. They don't even make regular pasta, all of their pasta dishes are served with quinoa pasta. It's my favorite restaurant.

Barro's Pizza is a large local chain that does gluten free pizza. There are 2 in Queen Creek.

Uncle Bear's Grill and Bar is in Queen Creek. They have a gluten free menu including hamburger buns and pizzas.

There are quite a few more restaurants but then you're getting awfully far from QC area. There are the regular chains that cater to gluten free too. PF Changs, Red Robin, Outback, Carrabba's, Old Spaghetti Factory, Olive Garden (though I'm not impressed with their gluten-free options), Chipotle, Pei Wei.

As far as hot dog brands I think most are gluten free. I haven't found any that contain gluten. I know for sure Hebrew National, Ball Park and Oscar Mayer are gluten-free (though not positive about the cheese filled Oscar Mayer). The Jennie-O turkey dogs are gluten-free too.

Thanks so much! Do you know of any good Barbeque places too?

Joe's Real Barbeque in Gilbert is my favorite. Joe actually owns 3 restaurants and they are all great. Joe's Real Barbeque, Joe's Farm Grill, and Liberty Market. All 3 have allergen listings or gluten free menus. They aren't huge menus with bread substitutes, but they do tell you how to order safely. At the barbeque place you can eat all the meats, just not on bread obviously, and most of the sides except mac and cheese and the cheesy potatoes.

I don't know the Queen Creek area that well, but there is a gluten free store in Gilbert. It's called the Gluten Free Country Store. They also carry gluten-free baked goods from local gluten-free bakers. My favorite baked goods are by Julia - good cupcakes and cinnamon rolls. Their website is gfcountrystore.com if you want to check them out before driving over.

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
