In Topic: Most Ridiculous Gluten Comment I've Heard

Haha, so I'm a dietitian, and I work with other dietitians. Once had a dietitian (an old boss, who has a MASTERS DEGREE in nutrition mind you) give me a bag of chocolate covered pretzels as a gift. "I'm not sure if they're gluten free or not...."


They most certainly were not. Let's just hope she's not counseling any celiacs any time soon.

Oh my.....it's been a long time since I've posted on this site but I HAD to after reading this thread.


1) Once asked a waitress what salads were gluten free. She pointed them out, then told me a couple I couldn't have because they contained Romaine. Apparently Romaine contains gluten.....? I actually wanted to order one of the salads that had Romaine in it and she refused to serve it to me because she didn't want me to get sick. I finally ordered the spinach salad, and then she brings me a basket full of breadsticks <_<  


2) Was in NYC a couple of weeks ago. Hostess says they've got a ton of gluten free options and to just ask the waiter once we're seated. So I do. His response? "Look at the menu, you know what you can eat better than I do". That guy got a cruddy tip.
