So I've done a few emails because I'm trying to find out if some things I liked prior to going gluten-free are still edible for me. I'll list what I can here, please contribute. please note that I personally do not have a sensitivity to cross-contamination, so take that into account.

Dillettante Chocolate - this place sells pastries, they're the chocolate version of a Starbuck's. On the other hand, I was pleased to find out from their website that their delicious caramel sauce is gluten-free. So I can still have my caramel latte. No gluten-free pastries, though.

Taco del Mar - they have a HUGE and comprehensive "allergen chart" on their website. I'd say a good 85-90% of the menu is gluten-free, which is awesome. Baja fresh mexican food!

Specialty's - yes, it's a bakery, so I can't have any pastries/bread/etc. :( BUT an email to them confirmed that while the cross-contamination is a factor, there is no gluten actually IN their delightful mini-quiches. YUM.

Red Mango - Red Mango frozen yogurt is all-natural, nonfat or lowfat, kosher and certified gluten-free. please note that the additions you can get for the yogurt may not be, as I know they have waffle cones and graham cracker crust bites. But the fresh fruit is sooooo good.

Anyone else have any locations or singular items, especially in Downtown Seattle? (where I work)

Thanks,

Meg

PF Chang's in Westlake Mall has an extensive gluten free menu. I have celiac disease plus diagnosed reactions to dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. PFC is so allergy friendly. If you ask the waiter for gluten free menu and mention you have other allergies, the manager almost instantly appears at your table to talk to about which entrees will work for you. I also carry a laminated allergy awareness list of my allergens, which I send with my waiter to the chef preparing myfood. If gluten is your only concern PFC will be easy for you.

There are a whole bunch of places in Seattle. Off the top of my head:

Chaco Canyon Cafe (West Seattle and U District) have a lot of raw and gluten free items.

Flying Apron Cafe (Fremont and Redmond) have a lot of gluten free baked goods (they're entirely gluten free).

We went to Cactus this past weekend in Kirkland. It has a fantastic and extensive gluten free menu. And the food was delicious! I believe they are also located in Madison Park.

I've been meaning to also try Blue Moon Burgers.

There's a little place in Sumner called "The Buttered Buscuit" with a good gluten-free menu. Their gluten-free crepes are just to-die-for...

And there's a new yarn store in the north Kent / south Renton area that's putting in a gluten-free bakery.

I would also like to add a couple more to the list

 

Portage Bay Cafe -several locations in Seattle - I had the buckwheat pancakes - but they also make gluten-free french toast. All these come with their "fruit bar" ( fresh fruit toppings)They have a nice selection of gluten-free items for breakfast!

 

Wildfin - in Issaquah and Renton - has en extensive gluten-free menu. However there is a disclaimer that the food is not prepared separately - and when I asked, they do not have a designated fryer. But - with that said - I felt like there were plenty of safe options. I had clam chowder for the first time in seven months :D

    • I got WELL!!
      It sounds like things are looking up for you. Happy dance, happy dance! Happy Valentines Day!
    • Help understanding test results??
      I forgot to add this...I only had one positive on the complete celiac panel.  I had a positive on the DGP IgA test, my visual endoscopy "looked fine" but my biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe villi damage).  My symptom at the time was anemia.   Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  This is really important!   Hang in there!    
    • SO HUNGRY. All. The. Time.
      Over my 6 gluten-free years, I have endured this "Starving Syndrome" several times.  Actually, I have lost count.  I am 5'4" and frequently eat more than my 6'4" husband.  My weight has gone from a low of 93 lbs. to my current high of 105 lbs.  I eat as much as I possibly can.   I agree about the fats helping me to feel full.  I'm beginning to test out the "grain hypothesis" as mentioned above. It seems (feels) to me that when I go through a major healing spurt, my body just wants more food!  No idea if this is actually what is happening.  Still, I have come to look at it as a "good thing" when my body wants lots of food.  I just relax and try to give my SMART body what it wants.
    • I got WELL!!
      Update on my progress: 1.  By thorough and consistent evaluation of my food diary (every item ingested for 6 years); I've finally figured out that both dairy and nightshades cause me PAIN!  I had tried eliminating these previously; but it was no help.  I tried again anyway...and IT WORKED!!  Maybe because I'm healthier now?  Never was lactose intolerant; but BOTH these items cause me PAIN!  All over, wish-I-were-dead PAIN! 2.  Just completed 2 courses of Xifaxin.  One in November and one in February.  The first course helped some with the Buddha Belly.  This second course helped a lot!  Fingers crossed that things will only continue to improve.  (I actually think it may be helping reduce the fatigue!  But I won't mention it as I don't want to jinx it!) 3.  Added back rice.  Had been grain-free for 3 years.  Seems fine and maybe even beneficial.  I'm pursuing adding more variety to my diet.  Looking at amaranth and buckwheat.  Plan to discuss diet with nutritionist after my next GI appt.  to get tips on this.  (Had to postpone this appt. due to bad headcold--first in many years!) 4.  Plan to discuss changing levothyroxine brand at next internist appt. in a couple weeks.  Currently taking Tirosint--and love it.  But...investigating other options like Levoxyl since I may have felt better on that.  Sadly, Pfizer was NOT helpful the last 2 times I called them to discuss gluten content/contamination.  Mylan generic was VERY helpful!  Choice to be determined.  Goal is to reduce fatigue. 5.  Continuing with exercise, meditation, drawing, etc.  Paying attention to mindset and emotional calm.  Optimism is my friend. 6.  On a humorous note, my hairline continues to advance!  I always had the highest of foreheads.  Ha!  Now my hairline is moving, from all directions, closer to my eyes!  i actually have developed a widow's peak!  This is too funny.  Sixty-six years old and my hairline keeps getting thicker and more extensive!  Mother Nature toys with me! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to everyone!!   Remember to love yourself!
    • I got WELL!!
      Posterboy, Many, many thanks for providing such complete information.  Your efforts won't go to waste.  I will look into each item you mentioned. Not sure the iodine is an issue as I no longer have a thyroid.  And too much iodine can aggravate my intermittent rashes.  (Never was tested for DH.  Didn't see the point as I was already diagnosed with Celiac.) Thanks again!
