  1. There are many Gluten free training courses available for foodservice managers and waitstaff. They should all complete appropriate courses. Many are available online. That will make you life a lot easier when it is time to meet.
  2. It could be. There are other factors as well. There are laot of false negativities in testing. It is important to notgo to a primary care doctor but a gastroenenterologist and to make sure that they have a Celiac specialist there. Request the genetic testing as well as the blood test they will want to start with and also a full blood workup as well including Vit D, B-12, potassium. Noone likes to keep going back to the Dr it is best to just hit it all at once. Alot of the symptoms you are experiencing often are caused by Low Vit D and your bodys inability to process the nutrition you are giving it. After going Gluten free it may take awhile to fell better as you have to flush out your body and start the healing process. Everyone reacts differently and in different time frames. Some within weeks and others it may take a few months. My anxiety and restlessness along with fatigue subsided within 3 weeks for the most part. It was almost a year before it completely dissapeared. It feels so good to be able to feel great again.
  3. I use world seasonings for alot of my spices. A small company out out of San Diego that makes everything fresh. Great blends. All Gluten Free.
  4. Chick-Fil-A

    Pepperjack cheese would be gluten free. Tell them you need Gluten free so they change gloves and grab you cheese that has not been sitting out.
  5. Cauliflower mash cover by 5 grilled jerk shrimp. Topped it off with a mango salsa.
  6. I'm Always Tired.

    I used to feel the same way. Spent years just dragging. I changed out my household products to all natural to eliminate toxins and started taking really good vitamin supplements. Especially extra Vitamin D. I have no issues now. I feel like I gained back 10 years of my life! I got to bed about 11pm and wake up at 5:30 with no alarm!! I am more than willing to talk with anyone who wants to know more about how I turned it around.
