It seems like a couple of years ago I saw a card that you could take with you to a restraunt that explains your condition. You could give the card to the chef and the staff before you ordered so they would be extra careful with the preperation and the handling of your meal. Has anyone ever tried a card, or something like this?

Mariann- that stinks that you had a bad experiance at Outback. I eat there quite a bit. The first few times I went I tried and tried to explain to the waitress that my food had to be gluten free, and that they had to be very careful. Then I realized they had a gluten free menu. When I request the menu they seemed to take my condition much more serious. I have two daughters, so when we go to McDonalds or any other fast foo chain I rearely even eat. I tried to get a hamburger patty and some fries once and the same person that was putting on the buns grabbed my patty and you could see some crumbs in it. I just don't feel comfortable at fast food restraunts. I have become accustomed to reciving a few stares as I pull out my small travel cooler with my gluten-free food in a restraunt.

I too felt better almost instantly. I was very worried at first that I was not going to be able to eat anything. I found out pretty quick that my diet did not have to be changed too drastically. I am a meat and potatoes guy anyway, so my diet stays pretty bland. I travel quite a lot, so that was a challenge at first. I always try to find an Outback Steakhouse close to my hotel when I am out of town. I like that they have a special gluten free menu. I don't eat any fast food just to stay on the safe side. If I go to a fancier retaraunt I just talk to the chef, and they are always able to accomidate you.

Blackheartedwolf- I don't drink a lot if pop, but I was glad to see I could still drink the kinds I like. I am not sure if Pepsi products are gluten free. I know most of the Coke products are.
