#702659 How Often Do You Cheat?

Posted by Coleslawcat on 26 May 2011 - 02:08 PM

Although I do not experience GI issues with gluten, I WOULD NEVER CHEAT! To me it is all or nothing. I think long term. My husband and family need me.


I feel the same way. I have fairly minor outward reactions to gluten. I probably could cheat regularly without feeling all that bad. But I look at my 3 kids and imagine how selfish it would be to take years away from my time with them and it is very easy for me to pass on gluten.

You need to decide for yourself if you are willing to have children with someone who doesn't worry about her longterm health. If she has a change of heart and starts taking this seriously she can go a long way to reversing the damage she has done, but if she's not willing to then I would run the other way.

#702519 Develop Celiac Disease At 35

Posted by Coleslawcat on 26 May 2011 - 09:26 AM

I was 31 when I was diagnosed. I was largely asymptomatic, or so I thought. It wasn't until after I went gluten free that certain things I thought were normal (regular headaches, frequent random nausea, joint pain, fatigue) actually weren't normal and were caused by celiac. Looking back I'm nearly positive I've had this since I was 21 and had a severe case of mono.

#696798 Fast Food Places

Posted by Coleslawcat on 04 May 2011 - 06:56 AM

Some reason I don't feel like cooking dinner today and looking to get some fast food. Wendys and Chic Fillet are the two that most go to, both are really good, but was wondering if anyone knew of any good fast food places they like to go to, or that at least offer a good amount of gluten free stuff other than the salad and drinks? :)


Chipotle! The entire menu except for the flour tortillas is gluten free. I tell them I have a wheat allergy when I order and they wash their hsnds, change gloves and serve me from fresh bins of food rather than the ones that havfe been out and may be contaminated. I've been to several and they are all accomodating.

#589493 What Chains Are Offering Gluten-Free Meals Nowadays?

Posted by Coleslawcat on 31 January 2010 - 09:42 AM

I've been gluten free for about 4 years now and have been successfully eating out in restaurants for the past 2 fairly frequently but just recently realized there are probably a number of options I don't know about. I've incidentally stumbled upon places like Johnny Carino's and Boston's Pizza (a sports bar with gluten free pizza!) through friends and from checking this forum briefly, just saw that Olive Garden also has a gluten free menu.

So the chains I know of are outback, pf changs, carabbas, bonefish grille, cheesecake factory, red robin, charlie browns, johnny carino's, boston's pizza, olive garden. What else is out there and seems to have at least an inkling of a clue as to what they're doing (I don't think I'm that sensitive to a little cc).


Macaroni Grill, Chili's, Maggiano's, On The Border, and Chevy's. Locally in Phoenix there is Barro's Pizza, Picazzo Pizza, and Sourdough Pizza. I'm pretty new to this and I've been pleasently surprised by all of the gluten free dining options.
