In Topic: Most Ridiculous Gluten Comment I've Heard

27 May 2015 - 10:24 AM

While out of town I went to a restaurant I had researched online to not only have gluten free options but good comments from people who had eaten gluten free there.  When we entered  I asked for a gluten free menu, the hostess told me the manager would come to our table.   Great!   Until she got there, she asked if I had anything other than gluten I could not eat, then proceeded to tell me I could not have the pasta dishes, anything breaded, any of the their bread items or any fried items.....duh????   Guess she though I said this was my first day gluten free??????? :wacko:


She could not answer any of the questions I had about other items on the menu, like the seasoning on the steak, or the salad dressings.   Needless to say we left.  

In Topic: Carnival Cruise Gluten Free Experience

Thank you so much!   This information will really help.   We just returned from a very successful week in Branson MO.   But restaurants are easy to research, cruising is different.   I am excited.     I will report back on the sandwich station after I return.

Thank you for taking the time to post this, I leave on Carnival Valor in 2 weeks, and never would have thought about the deli or the Lido deck buffet.   Awesome info and now I know to ask for a manager for the buffet.     What did you do the first night?  Everything I see online and speaking with Carnival they just tell me to let them know the first night, which makes me wonder what I eat the first night (since I can't prepick my meal prior to departure)   

In Topic: Help Me Pack Snacks For My Trip?

21 May 2015 - 02:41 AM

I just returned from flying both flights had early departures and thanks to airline changes long layovers here are some things I took:

I froze cheese sticks and they were my "ice pack" for my insulated soft cooler

Hard boiled egg I had peeled the night before

Small bags of Smartpop Popcorn

Kind Bars

Chex Mix Granola.

gluten-free Trail mix


I saw a lady with three small children traveling, she had brought sliced apples and oranges.  


Due to the long layovers I was able to explore the airports, all had fresh fruit, lara bars, kind bars, caveman bars, and or course chips and candy that were all gluten free.   Only one airport was a large international airport the others were small regional and they had these items too, so I was surprised.  

In Topic: Help With My Daughter's 5Th Birthday Cake!

I am not sure how to copy a website to this, but a really good dairy free, gluten free vanilla cake I have made is from the Primalpalate.com   It is the coconut cake, it sounds like it would be strong coconut flavor but it is not and it is very good.   I bought the premade frosting and have used other flavors that what she suggest with no problem.  It is my go to when I take cupcakes to work.  I have also made her carrot cake from this site, it is great too.    Not sure why I was able to post the recipe and not the link....user error, I am sure :wacko:
