In Topic: Destin Area Restaurants

18 May 2010 - 11:32 AM

We were in Destin last summer and ate at Jim & Nicks BBQ and Pompano Joes and had a great experience at both places. Jim & Nicks (http://www.jimnnicks.com/) doesn't have a gluten-free menu on their website, but if you email them they will email back a very extensive list of what you can eat. The servers were very helpful as well. Pompano Joes is right on the beach and they were very well informed of what I could and could not have. The manager took care of us personally. I had grilled fish and veggies that were really yummy! Hope you have a great time, it's so beautiful there!

In Topic: Olive Garden

I have a friend that works at Olive Garden and he said that the meals are frozen, they zap them in the microwave and they have strict instructions to use fresh utensils, etc., so that no cross-contamination occurs. I have eaten it 3 times with no stomach issues, but I did have a waitress look at me like I had 2 heads when I said I needed the gluten-free menu. I remembered it being under garden fare on the website. That made more sense to her, she brought me the garden fare menu and I could point it out and show her what I meant. It isn't that tasty (especially when my husband has regular pasta with marinara and it smells amazing!), but it is nice to have another resturant option to eat at. :)

I ate at the Rainforest at Downtown Disney in Orlando about a year ago. The staff was very nice, a chef came right out when I told our waiter that I needed something gluten-free. I ate a steak, mashed potatoes (no gravy), and mixed veggies. Now it doesn't sound very exciting, but it was wonderful. Would definately go back, but without my little girls...they were afraid of the thunderstorm :)

In Topic: Prenatal Vitamin.......gluten Free?

20 September 2009 - 03:01 PM

Congrats on the pregnancy! I am 16 weeks with baby #3 and I take GNC prenatal vitamins w/ iron. It clearly states No Wheat, No Gluten. I took them with baby #2 as well and have had no problems. They are sold at all GNC stores and are $17.99 (I think!) for 120 caplets.

In Topic: Pediasure Substitute? Vitamins?

17 September 2009 - 10:22 AM

I'm confused, because according to the Pediasure website and someone I spoke with on the phone, Pediasure does NOT contain gluten. My daugher won't drink straight milk, so we mix it half and half with Pediasure (strawberry) and we have never had any problems.
