Eat 'n Park Problems, Again

19 April 2014 - 02:36 AM

I posted about Eat 'n Park some time ago (they had something on their gluten free menu that wasn't gluten-free). So I went there again yesterday with my mother who is also gluten free. (I'm in Pittsburgh visiting her). She likes Eat 'n Park so even though I don't we went there because she wanted to. :)


We looked on the gluten-free menu and it said omelets were gluten free. I double checked with the waitress, she said yes they were. Also the breakfast potatoes. So we ordered, then waited forever (which is usual for Eat 'n Park). Finally our food came and right there on her plate next to her omelet were not breakfast potatoes but hash browns. They were only touching one end of the omelet and she didn't want to send it all back and have to wait forever again for a replacement. So I cut off that end of the omelet and gave it and the potatoes to my son. I mentioned it to the waitress when she came back, and then a few minutes later one of the managers came by and gave us our check with the cost of the omelet deducted. Nice of them, but still no help about the gluten. Fortunately my mother was fine with it this morning since she didn't actually eat any. (she's not diagnosed with celiac but went gluten-free after I was diagnosed, and feels 100% better so never went back to it).


I ordered ordinary eggs, bacon, and the potatoes and feel fine this morning so I guess that was okay. (except that the eggs were not cooked well, and my tea was hardly hot). But I would advise avoiding Eat 'n Park unless you absolutely have no choice, especially if you are very sensitive to gluten.


Found A Wonderful New-To-Me Cookie! Wow Lemon Burst...

30 July 2013 - 01:09 PM

These just appeared on the gluten free shelf in my grocery store. I've never seen them before. The company is WOW -- apparently that means "without wheat", lol.  (although they aren't just "wheat free" they're gluten free). It says made on a dedicated gluten free facility. They're soft and chewy and lemony. And all the ingredients are things I can pronounce. And, the package says "these cookies have more friends" and shows other types -- snickerdoodles, peanut butter, ginger molasses, and chocolate chip. Next time I'm at the grocery I'm going to request to the manager that he order some of the other kind.


Anyway, that's my new food find. They are perfect with a cup of tea in the afternoon. :wub:



Do You Think A Person Can "recover" From Gluten Intolerance?

28 May 2013 - 01:42 PM

This is kind of a spin-off of another post here, the one whose friend eats gluten even though she says she has celiac.


I have a friend who says she *was* gluten intolerant. She swears that she was cured of her symptoms -- joint aches, migraines, intestinal issues -- after going gluten free. She's been gluten free for over a year. Then just a few weeks ago she ate some bread because she "couldn't stand it any longer" (her words). And lo and behold, no symptoms. So she ate another piece the next day. Still no symptoms. Then she tried some pasta. Nothing.


What do you think? I'm wondering if she ever was really experiencing those symptoms, although there are a lot of them on her list. All the same ones I got rid of, in fact. But I am NOT willing ever to try eating a piece of bread :ph34r:  since I know how bad I feel when I get accidentally glutened.


I've googled around, but can't really find anything reliable on whether or not someone can recover from being gluten intolerant.


My thought is maybe someone could recover from being gluten intolerant, but not from having celiac?


Well, I don't know, but I do know that I am not ever eating gluten again. Just wondered what you all think, those of you who know so much more than I do about this whole subject. :)


edited to add: I am diagnosed with celiac by a blood test. I never had the endoscopy because I wasn't willing to eat gluten for weeks and weeks and weeks just for that. My doctor agreed, and said the blood test was enough.
