Breckendridge, Co

3 posts in this topic

I am going to Breckenridge, Colorado next week. Does anyone know of any restaurants in the area that have a good Gluten Free Menu?

I will be cooking most of our meals at our lodge, but I'm sure we will eat out at some point. Side note - has anyone noticed how much easier it is for a Celiac just to rent a place with a kitchen!

We were just there in March. We went to Mi Casa. It was good but not great. It is not cheesy Mexican. They bring you your own chips and bowl of salsa. They are just Tostitos but it was nice to be able to eat chips and salsa.

At Breckinridge ski resort, there is a little place inside the Ski Hil Grill that has gluten-free chili, and paninis made with Sandwich Petals. It looks like a coffee place. Not sure if its open in the summer. That is probably a main base for summer activities, too. Not cheap, but nothing in that area is.

We always get a condo so we can cook. We did that before Celiac. Its just easier, when you are tired, to stay in. You eat better, too. How often does a person have a burger and fries and an apple when they eat out?

I just got a set of backpacking pans. They fit inside each other and are light weight. I have found that the pans in rentals are often well worn teflon. I, also, bring a cutting mat, collapsable colander, some cooking spoons/spatuals, and toastit bags. Get foil when you are there and you can put 2 layers of foil on the cookie sheet and make Ore-Ida fries in the oven. I got some foil grilling pans. Hub lines them up in the grill so the holes are between the slats and opens them a bit more to let grease out. Some grills are so gross, I can't imagine anyone wanting to put food on them.

Forgot: There is a Bubba Gumps in Breck. I have not been to one but I have heard they are good for gluten-free.

We have not been to Breckenridge, but if there is a Bubba Gumps there, we would recommend it. We ate at Bubba Gumps for an entire week while in California on vacation in the Universal Studio area. We are sensitive to cross contact, and never got sick. My kids enjoyed it also.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
