I Ate Lunch At Wendy's

Recommended Posts

Hi, today at work we had lunch from Wendy's. I ordered the ultimate chicken grill with no bun with sauce and tomato and lettuce. I had a baked potato with nothing on it, cause I can't do dairy, plus a diet coke.

I had lunch through Subways a couple weeks ago not even thinking of the cross-contamination issues, so I think I did much better eating from Wendy;s.

It sounds like what you ordered is safe, but I personally steer clear of fast food restaurants. They are just too busy and their staff is usually not trained on gluten-free food prep. Having had experience at working for McDonalds when I was in high school, I've seen the level of competence working behind the counter, and it is scary!


2010- Gluten, Soy, Corn, Dairy, Eggs, Nut free. Sugar, non-gluten grains lite(Yes, still plenty to eat!)

2010-Doctor diagnosed me as Celiac then took diagnoses back, then said avoid gluten for life

Wendy's is probably a little safer than Subway just because they don't bake fresh bread on site so they don't have flour floating around in the air like Subway. It's still a relatively risky place to eat. Though, I must admit, I don't think I've ever been glutened at a Wendy's.

Sure thing! I posted the recipe here a few weeks ago. Waffle Recipe Enjoy! I topped mine with blueberries and GV brand whipped cream. I believe Reddi Whip is gluten free as well. Any fruit would work. I like the canned stuff that's already sweetened, though unsweetened fruit is probably much better for you. I'm sure any fruit would work.

Angie,

Those waffles do look yummy! Do you have a hard time keeping them on the table?

Let's just say there are never many leftovers. Luckily, I make the waffles the day before I'm planning on serving them, and then I freeze them. A batch makes 10 waffles. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't get a bite because I'm always the last to eat when I cook breakfast. :)

thank you so much! i think i'm going to give them a try this weekend.... but sorry, one more question--does anyone know an addition/variation you could add to this to make them "belgiun waffles"? (i don't know if i spelled that right) i don't know exactly what makes them different than regular waffles.... thanks again!! :D
