Topics I've Started

Dining Out

15 August 2013 - 04:18 PM

I don't know if this has been discussed specifically, so let's see.....


Every time - and I mean _every_ single time - I go out to eat, no matter where or when - I get sick the next day.  It's almost flu-like... with the fatigue, D & V & aches/pains (all over) the next day (or two).


I can go to Chipotle (an old fave) & ask for them to change gloves, get a new bowl (untouched) & one person fill it (rice, meat, tomato salsa, lettuce & cilantro ... no cheese, no legumes) and I'm ill the next day.  I understand going to places like Outback (which seems to be a popular one on this thread) can have CC - no matter how many times I ask questions, show my card, give explicit blah-blah-blahs...


ANY restaurant, ANY time (of day/year) I can guarantee being ill.


Sadly, I have friends/family/coworkers who love eating out & I'm not one to talk about D&V at the dinner table - so they don't fully understand & I'm not gonna whine about "I'm gonna be excreting from every orifice tmrw!"  EWW!  LOL   And many times these outings are expected (work/fam). 


Ideas? Recommendations? 

Yes, I usually eat prior to going out - even just ordering a salad makes me ill (yes I check the dressing, meat/seasonings, etc.)  I'm not new to this.  Just frustrated.  And I've never been to a restaurant that permits me to bring in anything.  I've had a couple embarrasing moments where the Mgr once asked me to leave & another told me never to bring anything in again. 

You'd think w/all the new info/research folks would be a little more understanding/compassionate.

gluten-free Foods Cause Gi Issues

30 December 2012 - 08:40 AM

Ok, I've been gluten-free for a couple yrs now & feel pretty confident that I'm mostly aware of hidden wheat/gluten.

I was wondering if anyone has noticed GI problems when eating "gluten-free" foods (a la Amy's brand, which uses mostly rice flour)? (pain, bloating, the infamous 'D' - up to 2 days after eating)

I've used bob's red mill flours to make biscuits, pancakes, etc. and haven't had much of an issue (unless I eat more than one or two portions in a day).

I don't use these products frequently (maybe once a month - if that!), I eat real foods otherwise (fruits, veggies, protein, fats).

Any ideas?
