French Fries

Recommended Posts

I have gone out to eat twice this week. I'm finding it more and more difficult to do this. Not much to choose from! Anyway, I ordered a seasoned chicken breast and french fries. I just assumed the fries would be o.k.! But, after both meals my energy shot down and I was pretty tired. Was I wrong to assume french fries were o.k.?!

Yes you were. FF are generally gluten-free, BUT they have to be cooked in a dedicated fryer and many places do not do that. There are also fries that have a wheat coating. You have to check.

Even though potatoes are gluten free, those fries were most likely fried in oil that also fries other breaded foods such as onion rings, chicken tenders, fish stick...you get the picture.

I don't orded fries at a restaurant unless they assure me that they have a dedicated frier and unseasoned, just for the french fries.

It's a tough world out there!

I don't know where you ate but I've found at most chain restaurants and fast food places, the chicken breast is not safe. They usually come frozen with wheat and sometimes milk in them. There are a few places here that make chicken from scratch and it is fine.

The fries may or may not be safe. You'd have to check to see if they were done in a dedicated fryer.

We seldom eat out, but I want to be as safe as I can if I do go to any restaurant. Personally, I feel that the best way to be sure that I get gluten-free food is to order salad greens or vegetables that I know are cooked from fresh. I feel better when I've had a conversation with the manager to get his/her recommendations for gluten-free dressings, seasonings on grilled meat, etc. If I order a hamburger, steak, or chicken, it is only after being assured that there are no meat fillers and that no seasonings are used. Usually, the cooks add lots of fresh vegetables on the side that I can add to flavor the meat.

It is not unusual for me to take my own little bag with pine nuts or almonds, dressing, sauce, seasoning to add to foods. It is so much easier to cook at home and rest assured that my food is safe to eat. - Just my opinion.
