My take is a little different - I would go out with them, eat a little something before you go and have a coffee and bring a Kind bar or two to nosh on while you're at the table. It's important not to give up your social life - you become resentful and isolated.  And in corporate jobs, these kind of bonding experiences are important.  It's likely because you're young that they are asking about your diet and trying to get you to eat - if you develop that 'armor' a pp mentioned, eventually, they'll realize you're not to be swayed and not even notice what you eat.  I make it clear that I've learned that meals out are about the company, not the food.  With a smile "thank you anyway, I'm good".

There's got to still be gluten going on there.  I think he should be bringing his meals to the firehouse and also looking for sources of hidden gluten.  Soy sauce is a big one.  I don't drink beer, but I've heard even the supposed 'gluten free' ones can be risky (please don't flame me - I don't know if this is true), licorice, etc.,  places people wouldn't expect it.


Good luck.

He should contact the Celiac Foundations of major countries for advice.  I've done this.  Also stop into grocery stores when he arrives -- Schar products are widely available, in my experience.  Good luck!

Could it be related to your morning coffee?  Does it to me.

Oh, and favorite breads are canyon bakehouse rye like bread and schar deli style.  The things I miss most are madeleines to dunk in my coffee and a really good, flaky croissant.  Well, those are the food items I miss most. 


What I really miss most is spontenaity (sp?) and feeling safe when I eat out.  And not having to explain myself to the waitstaff.
