  1. Good Friend's Wedding Menu...help?

    ugh... i am also feeling the "food uncertanty" with weddings. I am in three weddings next summer (hello stress and a lot of dresses). My couzin has already told me that she will have a gluten free option for me and my sister-in-law and if anyone else need be. Though one of my good friends (2nd wedding i am in) told me nothing on her menu was gluten free (she thought) nor did she want to call the cateror or give me the info.... hmmmm wierd i know! too much work? i was a bit baffeld at her for this. but i am wondering... sitting at the head table would it be better to accomodate myself... or to just not eat and eat before? I am very torn on the issue as I do not want to upset anyone nor do i want others to be like "why is that girl not eating?" Its not my day and im not one who likes the spotlight but am a bit self concious about it. Any suggestions? (this wedding is also on a very suburban farm in the middle of iowa... not much goin on oin the food world) O yea the 3rd wedding... its a block away from my dad's house. i can be my own chef:) Thanks for all the support already from everyone on this site!!!! lu

  3. Celiac And Overweight

    It is so great to hear that there are others out there with the same problems on top of our celiac disease. My largest worry is I am with someone very serious and we speak of getting married soon. I have wanted nothing more in my life than to wear my mothers wedding dress (she has passed away and i know it would mean the world to her) Fortunately she was the same body structure as myself. Unfortunately i have a bit to go before the zipper gets all the way up and it can become a reality to wear it. Does anyone have any suggestions out there for me? I eat nothing but gluten free things though i do eat a good amount of cheese and only have a treat pry once a week and gluten free pasta once a week. Other than that its basically fruits veggies and lean meats. Im stuck and am really looking for some help.
  4. Gluten Free In Iowa

    Well this is my first blog and I just wanted to share with everyone what a great time I had at Granite City. I ordered a steak w/out the onion strings and my waiter asked right off the bat if I had celiac disease. I said yes and he was like , well, let me go and ask the chef if you can have anything else. My steak and the potatoes I had with it were gluten free and I also had a small cup of the chilli. It was so nice to go out (it was my bf's bday) and have a real meal with someone special and have my waiter care enough to meet my needs. My tummy is the happiest its been in a couple months:) Thank you for the posts from everyone else you all have been extremely helpful!
