Sorry, I wasn't aware, but still the safest bet would be to actually talk to the Manager face to face. If you show a concern, they may be able to change the processes at that location (not all locations are corporate owned and have more freedom as far as what they can and can't do in that store). A lot of cross contamination issues can be resolved by simply explaining it to the Managers of the restaurants. I am the Property Manager of a very large shopping mall and after moving to a rural town, they had no idea what gluten is. Once I talked to the managers face to face they were much more accomodating when I came in for a business lunch and asked for something gluten-free.

While I do agree ith you that talking to the manager may be helpful, I'm not sure that I would trust the employees to follow through. To many things are to big of a hassle for some people. Just my .02 worth.

phillysmom, I feel your pain.  My son is 11 and has apraxia with many texture issues.  He only eats a handful of foods as well... not a fruit, not a veggie, his only meat is chicken in nugget form from certain companies...it goes on and on.  Try your best to find a suitable substitute for his regulars.  It will get easier once you can get him to eat a pizza that you have made.  The Chuck E Cheese by us has a gluten free pizza that is made in a gluten free facility and shipped to them in an individual baking bag.  The staff takes the sealed pizza from the freezer, puts it in the oven and then brings it out to you still sealed in it's bag.  They bring a sealed disposable pizza cutter for you to use after you open the pizza.  You can only get a cheese pizza and it is only offered in an individual size but this might be an option for you.

As tough as this is now, it's going to keep on getting tougher for a little while, but you can get through this in baby steps. Do not eat out. Period. Not until you're a few months in and have got more of this sorted out. I'm only 5-6 months in w my daughter and we are still learning. Read everything in the newbie forum. Find the Perdue gluten free chicken tenders, udis chocolate chip cookies, and whatever other gluten-free treats he will eat. Amazingly, once he starts feeling better its likely that he will be more willing to try new foods. Come here for support and don't beat yourself up when he has a bad day.

Hi there.. I think the most important issue here is for you to not be too hard on yourself! There is so much to learn but you will learn it. I made choices in the beginning that I would not make now. That comes with knowledge.

Cross contamination is a big one for me. My friends can't understand why I won't go eat at a restuarant that has a gluten free menu. They think I am too paranoid. However, 9 times out of 10, I leave knowing I rec'd traces of gluten. They go back to their lives and I go to bed.

I live in Portland OR and we have many grocery stores that cater to healthier foods. These stores carry gluten free pizza and other rare products. Even my grocery chain has gluten free pizza crust so that all you have to do is throw on your topics of choice.

Hang in there! It really does get easier. However, I must admit that it has been life altering in many, many positive ways and a few not so positive. Eating out with friends on the spur of the moment is only a memory. :)

well, we are one week and one day into this crazy gluten-free journey! (my 12 year old son, philip, was just diagnosised last friday).......he's SUPER picky eater (he has down syndrome.....have worked in  therapy since age 2 on trying to get him to eat new foods).....he eats about 6 different foods.......anyway, pizza is his main staple food (well, at least it was a week ago).......we had a special olympics basketball tournament today and i got him a dominos pizza!.....he of course inhaled it like it was mana from God (lol!)........i have read many negative things about this pizza (cross contamination)........was i a horrible mom for giving this to him today?  and does anyone know anything about "cookie crisp" cereal??  (another one of the big 6 that philly will eat).......now the label doesn't have any wheat products, but at the bottom it says "may contain wheat products".......should this be a no-no, too???.................my head is spinning at all of this!.......i almost fainted the other day when i realized that vinager had wheat!!.....good grief........i pray that this gets easier......

I had the same problem.  My son did eat one of those pizzas and woke up irritable and his stomach hurt.  I immediately went to their corporate web site and complained.  This afternoon the manager of the local store called me.  It was a great call.  He assured me that he would do everything in his power to make sure that the gluten free pizzas that they sell are just that.  Cross contamination is a big problem.  He said their crust comes in already pre-made.  He thinks that maybe the screens they bake them on is the problem or even the cutter.  He promised to purchase screens for only the gluten free pizzas and suggested telling them to not cut the pizza, just to cut them myself.  I felt really good about the call.  He seemed to really care and want to work with me.  I suggest calling your local Dominoes and speaking with the manager.  Explain the problem and hopefully he will work with you also.  My son was diagnosed a month ago.  I hope this helped.

    • Yeah been there, done that, I have broken down to learning to how to cook acorns even, fall I steal pumpkins from the city decorations after halloween so I can eat the seeds and sell the meat in baked goods at the markets. I sometimes used to take produce from the grocery stores. Note you can sometimes talk with a manager and haggle on damaged produce they would toss.  I do not do steal them anymore, my family now offers to support me more now days, and the farmers market and bakery sales keep it where I can just afford food.

           It is  risky state, you have to MAKE sure you eating plenty of fat and protein. Otherwise your body eats itself, as the next best source for fats and protein is the stuff stored on your body as the fat and muscles your have. I live this way myself bit more mild since I can not eat meats. But I eat plenty of egg whites, nuts, seeds, and leafy greens. I literally eat every 4-5 hours at least a protein shake to prevent my body from turning on itself. You can actually body build in ketososis. You just need to really load on the fats and protein, it makes for a LEAN and slow building process....not as easy as carb bulking but my only choice due to my ulcerative colitis having carb, and sugar triggers.

          I am allergic to corn and break out in a rash from it....my mother is hispanic and well you see where that goes, I recall about a year ago she hugged and kissed me on the cheek....well she had eaten something with corn or drank a soda cause I ended up with a red rash in a lip imprint on my cheek bit amusing story for you.   I did a post earlier about where to bulk buy foil sheets, and freezer paper online from my supplier for my bakery I will update this later today with links for you. Buy in industrial rolls and they last you 4-6months
       
    • FYI newly diagnosed should not have oats right away. 
    • You may want to ask your doctor for a celiac panel. That would be a good start. The biopsy needs to be done next to an active lesion and they need to be looking for DH.  Unfortunately it can take a while for DH to be diagnosed because many doctors are not very knowledgeable in the skin form of celiac. Keep eating gluten until all celiac related testing is done. Then you can try the diet if the doctors haven't been able to figure things out or won't test properly.  It can take some time for DH to resolve so you might not notice a difference right away and folks with DH tend to be very sensitive to even small amounts of gluten so you must be very strict. Hope you get some relief soon as I know how miserable the rash can be.
    • Take the opportunity to get healthy!    Nuts, seeds, fruits, take these as snacks on your drive. I personally love almonds and pumpkin seeds. Or bananas and blueberries. Or if you need protein there's lots of gluten free protein bars at gas stations. I like to pack hard boiled eggs too.  One thing I do for long trips is I make sort of a granola/protein bar at home and take it with me.    1 cup oats 3 eggs two spoonfuls of peanut butter some cinnamon and a banana.   mash it all together and bake it like a cake for about 20 minutes. Chop em up into little bars and bag em for your trip. just get creative and try new things! 
    • I totally understand.    Ive noticed the same thing when I started really ramping up my fitness program.    To start, cut out the 30 day challenges. If your serious about fitness, you will incorporate it as a normal entity of life. We already have compromised immune systems so putting sudden outbursts (or challenges) of stress on it will only make you more susceptible to pathogens and ultimately, get you sick.    Take a week, only stretch, light cardio, very light strength training, and lots of rest. Next week, add a little more. Show your body that you can handle it, but do it push it by any means. This new training regime is forever, it's your lifestyle. Take it easy, and play it smart. Slowly add more intense training over time... slowly. Get to a point where you feel your nutrition and fitness needs are being satisfied, and you're productively making differences.   i personally work out 3-4 days a week. But if I go too hard, I get sick. Then I get frustrated that I can't exercise, I work out anyway, and get even more sick. It's just not smart. So I stopped that. I have respect for my immune system and its limits. I took it very slow, and increased my intensity over time. Now I'm at that golden point in my life where everything is balanced. Progress (in terms of personal aesthetics for myself and my interests) is slow, but it's progress. And it's a hell of a lot better than the go hard and get sick cycle.   Best of luck to you friend! I'm sure you will find your way! Learn your body. Know that you are strong, you are powerful, you just have to play it smart.
