  1. Do some research! Search something like "gluten free menu (your zip code)" into Google, or go onto your favorite restaurant's website and peruse the menu. If you like salads, you'll always be able to find something, just be sure to order a hearty one without croutons and a simple dressing, or even just tossed with olive oil or a touch of honey. Call up some local restaurants and see if they have a gluten free menu. Also, I would suggest getting a card. I have one from the Gluten Intolerance Group that lists the foods that are not okay, and it always settles any issues with the chef. It's really, really rude to bring food with you, and I'm sure if you talk with the manager/chef ahead of time, they'll be able to come up with something. Whenever you go out to eat, even if there is a gluten-free menu or gluten-free options, there is always a chance of cross-contamination, just because there's no way to ensure that the area and tools that they used to prepare your meal are entirely free of any and all gluten. If they take the proper precautions, your meal will be gluten-free, and any contamination will be minimal. If you don't make a habit of eating glutenous foods, you shouldn't encounter health problems with a small amount of gluten from cross contamination
  2. Any Celiac Teens Out There?

    Hey! I'm Janine, I'm 16, and I've been diagnosed for about 11 1/2 years now. I live in Northern California, so if there's anyone in the area, contact me!
  3. I live in the Bay Area, but it's kind of far from Oregon :/
