How Do I Protect Myself In Paris?

3 posts in this topic

im spending a week with a girl im seeing in Paris the week of xmas/new yrs - her and i love food and we always go to great places. thing is Paris may be tricky with the gluten issue. I managed to survive in Germany for 3 weeks and ate out all the time so i think i can do it again in Paris. my question is are there any supplements i can take to protect my gut? - im sure im gonna get gluten in me when im out there, maybe even daily, but will obviously keep it to a minimum. I usually take digestive enzymes, probiotics, activated charcoal and N-acetyl glucosamine for gut support as well as milk thistle for liver protection. is there anything else I can take may offer protection?

Not a celiac answer, but watch your wallet on the Metro!

Can you find a translation card to hand to waiters/chefs?

It is a fantastic city, I hope you get some good advice

Try using restaurant cards, and also look up some common french foods so you can kind of figure out what is likely to be safe ahead of time. I was recently in France and Belgium, and I ate a lot of grilled steak, steamed/grilled fish and shellfish, french fries, and salad. I had them leave off all the sauces, and I didn't have any gluten issues at all over there.

Also, there's a gluten free bakery/pastry shop in Paris now. It just opened last year. It's called Helmut Newcake, and it's right off one of the metro stops so it's easy to find. Owner has celiac and speaks English. They also do small meals you can eat there or get to go.

    • Hi, I know this thread is old but I'm in Swansboro.  My husband and I moved here almost 6 years ago and I was diagnosed with Celiac 3 years ago.  I can't find a support group, meetup group or anyone else that has Celiac even close to me.  I would happily drive to Jacksonville or host a group if people are willing to come to Swansboro.  I've learned a lot during the past three years but still have trouble with groups, dining, out etc.
