#861738 Silly Question Re: Turkey

Posted by anna34 on 03 April 2013 - 02:12 PM

Thanks for all the replies.  I've learned my lesson.  No more being polite when the in-laws "forget" that I have Celiac.  They can watch me eat steamed veggies at Christmas!   :rolleyes:

 

On a positive note, the gluten-free carrot cake I made for dessert turned out great!

#705605 Your Top Two Pieces Of Advice

Posted by anna34 on 04 June 2011 - 04:48 AM

1. Embrace the change and look forward with excitement to all of the new food and cooking adventures you have before you!

2. If you are doing this for/with your children, the less of a big deal you make of it, the less they're going to resist. It's just food - and food is tasty. We're so lucky that we can change the course of our health through diet alone. :)

#690367 Wdw Was A Great Experience

Posted by anna34 on 07 April 2011 - 07:33 AM

I just phoned the cruise line and they were totally aware of celiac disease. Right away she said "that means gluten-free right?" and she put it into their computer system. She said that the head server will visit our table each time we sit down to eat and if we choose to eat from the buffet, the chef will answer any questions we have about the items. It was so easy! They also put an "alert" on my daughter's file so that the kids' club will be aware that she can't eat anything with gluten. I'll still be packing snack foods for the shore excursions, but I'm glad to know the food on the ship will be safe.
