I Don'T Know If I Can Do This...

Recommended Posts

I think it is AWESOME that you are seeing results and finding the "light" at the end of the tunnel. It took me a couple of weeks to get over the initial shock. I am SOOOOO not perfect yet, but I am starting to see the positive side of this and am really ok with it now.

I hope everything continues to go well for you!!!

Nightingale, It is great to hear things are going well. It great that you have had so many good restaurant experiences. It is wonderful when those migraines go away!

Wow that's so great!! I'll have to write all these restaurants down as you post. ;)

In N Out is very accomodating. I called their corporate office and they were wonderful on the phone.

We haven't eaten out that much yet. I wonder if the Yard House has any gluten free beer??? With all the ones they have on tap there has to be something right?

You might not be able to have Guinness, but as I recall, most pubs have cider, and nobody will look at you weird for ordering it or asking for it. The bartenders there suggested it to me often, because in their experience, the "yanks" knew about guinness, but the cider was something new to share!

Bulmers is one of the more popular brands, and they confirm on their website that the pear cider is gluten free... they don't mention the others (the pear is new, so their FAQ is all about it), but various places on the web say it's gluten free.

* Bulmers Original Cider

* Bulmers Pear Cider

* Bulmers Mid-Strength

* Bulmers Light

* Linden Village Cider

* Strongbow Cider

* Samsons Cider

* Ritz Crisp Dry Perry

They're sold outside Ireland under the brand name Magners. I can confirm that the original, the pear, and Strongbow are all really good! A lot of the pubs here in the US carry Strongbow cider.

Also, cider sold under then name Bulmer outside Ireland (the name is owned by Heineken outside Ireland...Bulmers Ireland uses Magners outside IE) in original and pear is gluten free.

I guess when my friends are all having a beer I'll have to have cider instead. I'm a skydiver...that's going to be tough for me. Beer is part of our culture. Whenever you do something for the first time (get your license, have a parachute malfunction and use your reserve, do something really cool), we say you "owe beer", which means you bring beer for all your friends so you can all sit around the bonfire and share the beer and the story. My headaches have pretty much kept me on the ground for the last few years. Maybe going gluten free will get my butt back up in the air. I'll just have to be sure to keep some cider in the cooler.

Thank you for the cider information. It had completely slipped my mind. I have been a wine, gluten-free beer, margarita or rum drinker since starting my "diet exploration". This just gives me another option and the fun of find the one I like the best..

Going Gluten Free does not mean missing out! You will find that many no-gluten-free persons have not tried all the things you will. Ground Wheat flour is easy "sorghum" rice or almond flour is branching out trying new things and some really tasty treats as well.

that's great that you're not feeling all deprived and that you're still getting out.

Normally I don't prefer Outback (I think they're very overpriced!) but heck, if they have a gluten free menu, I might just put them back on the list of places to eat.

My Australian friends think its funny though. It's not really Australian food. ;)

Their gluten-free menu is about five pages long! There's tons of choices! It mostly tells how to modify the regular menu items, like:

"Victoria Filet Mignon, 7 or 9 oz. gluten-free- Avoid bleu cheese or horseradish crumb crust"

Or points out which items are gluten-free to begin with, like the dessert with the flourless chocolate brownie and ice cream.
