In Topic: Club Dinner, Small Buffet - To Go Or Not To Go?

My view is that if you are paying for it, they should be able to provide a suitable alternative meal. Can you contact the organisers in advance, to see what they could offer as an alternative? If they can't do that, you should not be paying money for food you can't eat, especially if you are on a tight budget, it does not seem fair.

Thank you. I didn't see much of anything on the restaurant's regular menu that was gluten/dairy free except for a salad, but it's worth asking. Otherwise, I would probably save my money. Thanks for the feedback!

Thank you both!
Tuxedocat, I really like the easy "multiple food sensitivities" statement for certain social gatherings. I just have to remember to be as meticulous when I'm around other people as when I'm on my own. And remember how cruddy I feel if I slip up.

Never give up and never give in for sure - thank you RL! I'm an athlete; I should *know* this!

Just as they say, "think before you speak," I s'pose we should also "think before we eat!"

Wishing good health to both of you! - Heather

Thanks ya'll!
Maybe I will have to be patient (not my strong suit)?
Natalie, I'd be curious to know what your doc says -- good luck! As far as other personal care products, as far as I can tell everything is gluten free now. The only suspect item is my face cleaner -- from Trader Joe's -- which lists "oat amino acid" as an ingredient. I haven't looked into whether that could be a problem. I wear my hair in a ponytail a lot since I'm pretty athletic (running, cycling). I've started wearing one of those cloth headbands when I run, which hides most of the bald back of my head. I'd be so happy just to see stubble.
