  1. At the gluten-free expo in Dallas this weekend there is a new product called Quakers that is like goldfish.
  2. I totally agree with everyone, I have Raynauds and am always cold! One time I was at a science museum and held up my hands to the heat sensor and they were black! Scary!!!! But a gluten free diet does help and bundling up!
  3. I know, the problem is when they bring it out on the special plate and it is still wrong! Still I love both PF Changs and Pei Wei, although I wish PF Changs had spring rolls and Pei Wei chicken lettuce wraps. What an interesting conversation about the soy sauces too!
  4. Hello friends! I recently dined out at the PF Changs in Allen, TX. I ordered the Buddha's Feast and I ate most of it before I found out I was served one not gluten free! I have been served a stir-fried one before and I knew that was not gluten free, however this one had tofu. Now I have been served one with tofu, but last night I did not eat any since I particularly don't like it. The manager noticed that I had pushed it to the side and rushed over to apologize to say that it should never have tofu. None of the items at PF Changs with tofu should be gluten free. I was shocked!!!! I was thinking well at least I didn't eat it, but look at all the cross-contamination. The manager did pay for my parties meal and give free dessert (which I partook of), I mean if I am going to be sick I might as well have chocolate beforehand. Needless to say I have not been feeling good for two days, from something I had eaten. Anyway, I just wanted to give everyone a head's up because this was something that I was completely unaware of!!!!
  5. There are a lot of options in Dallas, Company Cafe, Kozy Kitchen, Asain Mint, Extreme Pizza, PF Changs, Cantina Loredo, Iron Cactus. Just PM me if you want to mind out more.
  6. I am going to seminary to be a pastor and so whenever I lead communion, I plan it being gluten free too!
  7. Where in TX, I live in Dallas!
  8. Hello friends! Has anyone had any success at Vietnamese restaurants? If you live or have been to Dallas has anyone successfully gone to a Vietnamese restaurant?
  9. For those that live in Dallas, I went to the one in Preston Shopping Center and the staff was very knowledgeable. One of the manager's wife has Celiac so he was very familiar with the process. It is so nice to go out for pizza!
  10. I have a probablem with eating fats. I have to be really careful or be within a bathroom really really fast. I can't eat beef or milk fat like in cheese either. So I add fat throughout the day and not at one time.
  11. My liver enzymes get elevated when I have gluten, that was one of the signs that helped the doctors test for Celiac Disease. As long as I don't ingest gluten I am okay though. Good luck!
  12. I have not had a period for the last 5-6 years and I am only 25. The doctors have diagnosed me with hypothalamic dysfunction, basically my brain doesn't work right. Good luck.
  13. I just went Sunday to one in Plano, TX and it was disappointing too.
  14. I have worked with two churches and would happy to help you. Our church recently shifted one service to entirely gluten free using Glutino crackers and then all the other services have that option, with a separate cup to dip in.
  15. Does anybody have any good restaurants that they recommend in Santa Fe, NM? I will be going there later this week.
