In Topic: Restaurant Recommendations In Denver, Co?

22 February 2015 - 09:44 AM

For those monitoring this thread, here are some options:


  • Panzano (higher-end, owner has Celiac)
  • PF Chang's, 15th and Market (near free shuttle stop)
  • Chipotle, multi
  • Maggiano's (middle of 16th St pedestrian mall, near theater)
  • Spaghetti Factory (have not been to this location)
  • BTW, Coor's Field has one dedicated gluten-free food outlet on the main concourse, limited selection, but ALL gluten-free choices incl beer.

I prefer Outback. I've dined there dozens of times without one issue of C/C.


Love Outback!


PS: Yes, you have to still be careful and verify everything when you order and when it arrives at table. I do this at mom's house too!

Boulder Sausage is great, Costco may have it in the cheese aisle (it's local to me).


Jones is another that is easy to find.


BTW: Hormel Pepperoni is easy to find and is gluten free.

My two cents. In the beginning (especially), don't eat ANY foods that are clearly marked "made in a facility that shares....".


If you don't, you're only guessing that these foods aren't the problem. Then, you can add them in one at a time if you like.


I was diagnosed about 8 years ago and I still won't eat these foods. There are other choices and I don't want to play Russian Roulette.


Until it's mandated that equipment is sanitized to under 20 ppm or lower, I don't trust manufacturers to police themselves for our benefit.


Good luck.

In Topic: Does Anyone Else Get Sick From Eating Bananas?

22 February 2015 - 08:56 AM

My discovering this was about 15 years after I first had symptoms of a food allergy. It started with banana and fresh orange, both made my mouth sensitive and my tongue swollen a bit. It wasn't critical, but noticiable.


Then it went to colored bell peppers, except for green. Even cooked. Ultimately, the final straw was watermelon closing my airway enough to make me sound hoarse (which is what I thought it was, I was at an all day bbq and I was yelling a lot). I found out later that hoarse = bad news.


Interestingly, I never noticed GI symptoms with this. I just stopped eating uncooked fruits, which sucks, but it's better than needing an EPI Pen.


If you Wiki OAS, you'll get more info. Everyone's symptoms are different, but I'm also allergic to certain trees/pollen/ragweed etc and there are tables out there that will help match up the fruit/veg and the plants, they share proteins (so in my non-physician explanation, eating a raw strawberry that you're allergic to is like breathing in an entire tree you're allergic too).


Find a good allergist and do the skin testing, you'll then be on your way. Best. J
