In Topic: How To Deal With Servers Who Don't Think Celiac Is Real

05 June 2014 - 07:23 PM

We have actually had to walk out of many restaurants that have a "gluten free menu". Don't be afraid to. Yes, its frustrating, and disappointing, but If I can't talk with someone who understands, or they laugh it off as in your case, we don't chance it. I am sick for 2-3 days, and so is my daughter. I am extra careful because of my daughter. Good luck with this life long journey. It does get easier, and as you feel better, the more easier it is! You find out quickly you don't want to be sick~ We have a few restaurants that we trust that we go to when we travel or if we go out in our own town. We typically just don't eat out, but we travel, so its hard.  We have been doing this for years, and you will see all kinds of responses from people in restaurants, from those who really want to help you, and those who don't believe or laugh it off.  So sorry.


In Topic: Is There Anything Safe To Eat At Ice Cream Or Frozen Yogurt Shops?

07 May 2014 - 06:32 PM

We are very careful due to cross contact; But we have found a few places we love. Not sure what part of the country you live in. Here in Arizona we have a place called Zoyo yogurt. You go in and they say right on the label if it is gluten free or not. They do a great job of cleaning. We have eaten there many times (too many!! haha) and have never had a problem. We NEVER get the toppings. They are all in a shared area, and everything spills into all the different containers. So what could be safe, is never safe.  But we love the yogurt. I've tried other places. You really just ought to go in and talk to someone. Some places are more knowledgeable than others. Some have no idea!! Hope you can find a safe place close to you. Its a fun date night with the kiddos. And my teenage daughter likes it since she can go with friends and actually enjoy something thats good and safe!

I have never seen one, but would love to know also if there is one that exist!  We have to be so very careful also with gluten-free and cross contact. But I would love a restaurant that does it right! We have a local restaurant here that does pancakes, but they are not a chain.
