Gluten Free Diners?

Recommended Posts

Being both vegan and gluten free makes it extra hard for me to enjoy the foods I liked when I ate meat, and now all the alternatives to meat I cant eat either because most have wheat/gluten in them.

I was at this diner called Vertical Cafe here in Utah and the waitress has celiac's also. She showed me that half the food on the menu is un-contaminated gluten free food! I loved it!

Anyone else have stories like this, that you found a new place to eat catering to our special diets?

Not quite. I heard about a restaurant that is about 40 minutes away that is vegetarian and actually has things that are gluten, dairy, egg, and soy free or can be made that way. I haven't tried it yet ... still convincing my husband that the extra time is worth it. Given my experiences recently in a vegetarian and a Thai restaurant, they will give you something without soy, but then it has no flavor <_< I wish I hadn't have had that soy intolerance test :lol:

I may have to actually start cooking more. Oh dear :( What I'm worried about is a vacation next summer where I'm going to be on a river cruise, eating either on this small ship or in assorted non-English speaking cities. I can have international dining cards to deal with the gluten issue. But they say on there that I can have meat, dairy, egg, soy, etc. and I either don't want to or can't.

Sorry -- you wanted happy experiences :rolleyes: I did find two dishes at local restaurants where the dishes didn't have to be changed and were tasty. I have some other ideas as well. (I'm still relatively new at all this and so still scoping out local places.) I discovered a coop store close to where I live that has a lot of gluten-free vegan items.

Actually, I'm finding the soy thing a lot harder than eating vegan, and then adding gluten-free to that. I'm glad Enterolab doesn't have a test for corn B)

There's a Yahoo group you might be interested in if you aren't already aware of it. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Vegan-and-Gluten-Free/
