Help Turning Into A Salad.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I think I am turning into a rabbit, salad is all i can seem to eat when I eat out. Also sick of eating bird seed, I mean trail mix.

I went to a dietition who though helpful saying I needed to eat more often was only able to suggest expensive gluten-free manufactured food. In two weeks I am going on a course and will be staying 5 days in a hotel, in the room I will have a fridge, microwave and coffee maker. I am sure by the end of the week I will not only be tweeting like a bird but sick of salads.

what can I eat , where can I eat. I will be in Newmarket ontario, any ideas, please. I don't look good in bunny ears.

Where are you coming from? Will you be driving or flying in? If you're driving, you could cook some meals ahead of time, freeze them, put them into a cooler with lots of ice/ice packs, throw them into the freezer compartment in the hotel and warm them in the microwave when you want them.

If you're coming from farther, and are flying in, you could ask to have a room with a small full kitchen instead. If you have a stove, you can go shopping when you get to Newmarket and then cook your meals (maybe in the evening, and then warm them up the next day).

When we went to Vancouver in May we managed to get a hotel room with a small kitchen, and it worked very well.

Unfortunately, even though Newmarket is only an hour's drive south from me, I am not there often enough to know what kind of grocery stores they have. But I will be there tomorrow for a doctor's appointment. Where will you be staying? If you want me to, I can scout things out for you, if you let me know what your options will be.

I frequently bring a small rice cooker with me and cook in my room.

I don't cook rice with it though. I go to a supermarket and get the leanest ground beef (5% fat) and frozen veggies. I just dump all ingredients into the cooker. In a few minutes it is done. It gets to be monotonous, but this is the price I gladly pay to be gluten-free. Sometimes veggies and lean ground beef is all I eat for days.

I also bring a few bowls and silverwares, and dish detergent.

Don't let the hotel management know. Always clean up and hide the evidence before room service.

Ye! I know how you feel salad is just well green. I did when they first told me no more glutens then my mind thought about it a steak does not have glutens. it just had to be in small amounts I eat more time a day. I also like gluten free taco chips it says it on the bag that way I can snak with my family. I do get tired of the no eat out thing I am getting ready to go to the beach. full kitchen yehh! I'll eat and then we all will go out. sound like fun. There are some places that are great to help you it few and far between. oh I like chocolate you have to read but oh yes. becareful at Ruby tuesday's had bad thing with them they don't listen.I also get the resturants to boil my chicken most will do it many use boiled chicken on salads.I get that served with a baked potato. do alot of asking how they fix things

Newmarket has quite a few huge grocery stores (Loblaws, Dominion, No Frills, etc) where you can buy all your fresh fruit, fresh veggies, safe deli meat and cheeses, dried pepperonies, etc. There's a great Swiss Chalet for rotisserie chicken (I can't remember the street name, but it is off of Yonge Street near the new movie theatres). In that same complex there is a good Keg restaurant where they are up on allergies. They have a big menu of steaks, chicken, fish, etc.

There is a restaurant called Il Fornello where they have gluten-free pizza. It isn't in Newmarket, but about a 15 minute drive south in Richmond Hill. There is also an Outback Restaurant nearby. I haven't been there in ages though. Newmarket has been growing like crazy over the last few years. Ask the hotel staff if there's an Outback close by.

Of course, there are lots of Starbucks, Second Cup (coffee), Timothy's Coffee, and Tim Horton's (for coffee, not the donuts).

Hope that helps.

no one ever talks to me. Once in a while i get on this site to aske a serious questions and no one will ever talk to me. I am at my wits end. Sometimes I feel like I am in the ozone and it isnt even real that it is a lymes deseise thing . Ya know how there for awhile that is what everything was.The Dr.s sent my husband and I to Los Vegas to some quack. Said that is what we had. Now I have celiac spru. I dont know. I just want to be me again. I have no personality anymore. I am just nothing. I am a nothing... I am wondering if it is bull. I know we all get into clicks but we need to talk to everyone ok. Thanks

That doesn't sound like something that happens on this site, although I know that some posts fall through the cracks.

I looked up the topics you started , and didn't see any (other than dupicate posts) that didn't have at least one reply. There were a few where you never reposted on your topic again. Maybe you weren't able to find the topic again and thought it never was responded to? You got quite a lot of responses on some of them.

If I see a post like this one that's not a response to the original topic, but a topic of it's own, I assume that the person accidentally posted a reply rather than their own topic, and will repost it as their own topic.

If you post this as your own topic, or let us know what's going on, maybe we can help you a little more.

Here's the link to your topics -

I'm sorry you're feeling down.

Nancy

Edited to add: You know, when I get glutened, I get the same thoughts and feelings that you posted about. Which really sucks at 3am when you need to sleep and all you can do is just be inundated by all of these awful thoughts, and emotional pain. Just last week, I got glutened so bad that I had to go downstairs because I was crying so hard, and I didn't want to wake hubby up. I just wanted to let you know that this might be a gluten response and you're definitely not alone. I didn't want you to feel embarassed or anything, and not come back. Hope you feel better soon. - Nancy

Thank you all for your amazingly helpfull replies. I liked the rice cooker idea and the tips on safe resurants. I will be staying at the best western and driving in so I can organise a cooler.

My body and sanity thank you

I would take along some homemade trail mix - some almonds (my fave nut), pecans, dried cranberries and raisins in a bag. I also cannot live without tortilla chips, so I'd bring a bag of those, and maybe some refried beans (you know the bean dips you can get in tuna sized cans). I would also bring some home made bread (I love fruit and zucchini bread), prefrozen and kept in the fridge. Cheese sticks would probably stay good in a cooler. That's all I can think of for now.

Good luck!

Before this I ate my fruits and veggies every day, but now its alot more. I think its because I can just grab an apple and run out the door and know that its safe and quick, ya know? One of my favorite snacks now is toasting my homeade bread with a little peanut butter and honey on it, yummmm..... :D
