Colorado Springs

Recommended Posts

I need info on were to eat in colorado springs and what hotels would be a good place to stay. I have not went out of town since i was diagnosed and having some anixety on the whole thing. I know they have an whole foods i can shop at and an outback to eat at, but what other places will be safe. And should i take pots and pans to cook with, or maybe cook some stuff up tonight that i can warm up once we are there. And then just eat basic snack foods from whole foods the other times. Or does whole foods sell prepackaged meals that are gluten, casein and soy free.

Any help would be appreciated.

I do not live in Colo Sprgs but my mom does. Besides the Whole Foods there is also a Vitamin Cottage (tend to be a little cheaper) grocery that carries many gluten-free items. There is a gluten-free bakery called out of the breadbox as well.

One word of caution I have not heard good things about the PF Chang's in Colo Sprgs. My mom and several people she knows have gotten very sick from there (different occasions). Eating out is always a risk. Not sure if this location has a lax manager or unclean gluten-free area. Has anyone had a good experience there?

There's a Biaggi's in the Briargate shopping center which has a gluten-free menu. I've never gotten sick at the PF Chang's there. Also in Briargate is a Champp's - I've done fine with a salad, cheeseburger (no bun, of course) and side of veggies.

There's a Chipotle somewhere down there in the Springs as well.

thanks steve i will look at those places. Briagate is not that far from memorial, so i think i will be fine going there. I just dont want to be up there and me get totally sick and make it miserable for everyone else. I havent ate out at all since i was diagnosed so i have some anxiety.

If you're hesitant to eat out, just hit the grocery store, get some gluten free items (lunchmeat, tortillas, whatnot) and eat in your room. I've done that before when traveling and just expense my groceries as my meals. My old standby is a jar of peanut butter...perfect with some apples or rice cakes. Safe travels - you'll do well.
