In Topic: Traveling For Business To Seattle/bellevue (Suggestions)--Newly Diagnosed

Moderately adventurous: Something either uniquely Pacific NW or something not readily available gluten free. For the latter, I saw "biscuit bitch" online.

I will have a lengthy layover at the Seattle airport in late October.  Allowing for a comfortable cushion on travel by the light rail, I could have 3-4 hours.  Any suggestions for lunch in the downtown area?


In Topic: gluten-free Options In Gluten-Using Restaurants

I think the way to think about it is that risk is not a yes/no question but a scale.

If you cook in your home and have a totally gluten free house, the risk is very low but if anyone leave your house or visits, opportunities for contamination start to creep in. If humans work in the production of your gluten free ingredients, there is some level of risk.

If you get something gluten free from a business that uses flour directly, you have lots of risk. If all of the flour based products are prepared off site, the risk for their gluten-free options is somewhere in between.

The best you can do is get lots of advice then make informed decisions about what you are being exposed to.

In Topic: Travelling On "Carnival Victory"

I just finished a seven day cruise with Carnival (Glory). My experience was completely opposite from what Deb experienced.

I did talk to some of the staff and they generally have a contract for several months and then they rotate out. Just like any land based restaurant personnel turnover introduces risk.
