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 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.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
