Hey guys, my name is Brandon and I am new here.  I have recently been MUCH more cognizant of gluten to help my digestive process.  I became so interested in simplifying avoiding it that I started building tools to help me keep track of restaurants (my backgrounds in software) with good choices.  

 

I am curious what you all use to help with this? It seems like there are a ton of choices out there. Anything that is really good or really bad?

 

Looking forward to hearing,

 

Brandon

I keep a running Word document going, with notes, about gluten-free restaurants I've been to and/or know about. Oh, and of course, the restaurant itself is not gluten-free, there are supposedly just gluten-free options at them. 

 

If you are talking about discovering what else is out there that I don't know about, then I usually do a google search or find out from the local Yahoo list for Celiacs.

I cannot fathom having options, let alone enough to track! The nearest safe place for me to eat is 300 miles away. Thank goodness I am so passionate about cooking!

The FindMeGlutenFree app is definitely my favorite! It also has reviews from others on their success with the certain food or restaurant. Very helpful.

I do what plumbago does, but I keep a running document as a saved draft in my email account, the top half I have to send to people who want to meet up for a meal and I email it to them with options, neighborhoods, fast food/sit down etc. I have on there a short paragraph like "just because it says gluten-free doesn't mean it is safe, CC blah blah"  The bottom half is my notations like what I can eat and such.  I will probably need to put it in a word file soon, it is getting bigger as I become more comfortable eating out.

 

The apps mentioned and even review sites help sometimes.  If you are on a webpage with a ton of reviews you can hit Ctrl+F and type in gluten, see if any good/bad reviews specifically mentioning that are on there.  If you can get a hold of another Celiac who lives in your area this is the best way to get fast info on where they eat, and start there.

    • Yeah I have 2 stationary pedal bikes. I use one on the desk sometimes while watching a show and work out my arms. I keep one under the desk and pedal on it for hours a day, really helps with my restless leg issues and stress (just gotta keep moving or I start feeling like a panic attack is coming on trapped by life like a rat in a cage. If you need to know were to find the ground cocoa nibs look up crio bru, they sell it as a coffee replacement for $23 for 1.5lbs they have different origin and different roast levels so you can get different flavored cocoa nibs I get several and mix them up.
    • Yeah the histamine thing hit home a bit for me, as it mentioned everyone has their upper limits on it...explains why green canned fresh tomatoes fine...overly ripe sweet ones....instant puking, and why I have to really limit anything the citric acid, lemon, lime, garlic, onion, etc to very small amounts. Sorta funny how that works. like everything has a invisible number and if they add up to above my limit I am puking Makes eating annoying sometimes lol.  OH bit of a thought, I RARELY make almond milk cause it leaves a almond paste behind that I only have one use for and if sales at the bakery are bad I am better off just buying the stuff at the store and drinking in moderation. ANYWAY I use the almond paste mixed with coconut flour, left over almond butter batches, xylitol, apple sauce, and a tsp of a extract of choice to make the almond butter mini muffins for my bakery. They are a bit of a product of recycled foods lol. Taste great, super moist, grain free, mostly sugar free, and I can eat them no problems...they also freeze for months.   Love making them with our pirate butter (butter rum), Cheese cake butter (dairy free cheese cake extract in the almond butter) or any of the others for that matter.  
    • Did you get any of your vitamin and mineral levels checked for deficiencies?  You don't have to be Celiac to develop deficiencies.   Peripheral neuropathy may be caused by deficiencies of B12, copper, vitamin E, B6, B1 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4208100/ Not dreaming can be caused by B6 deficiency. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11883552 Tachycardia may be caused by deficiencies of B1, B12, vitamin C http://www.livestrong.com/article/503879-vitamin-deficiencies-racing-heart/ Ehlers Danlos can be helped by calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, and others https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15607555 And that funky color of your colon, melanomas coli, vitamin E deficiency https://www.researchgate.net/publication/22087649_Ceroid_enteropathy_and_vitamin_E_deficiency IMHO, doctors would rather treat the symptoms than cure the real problems. Hope this helps.

    • Absolutely nothing to apologise for Awol. I'm sorry for getting on my sugar hobby horse. In any case I'm a dreadful hypocrite, cutting out fruit juice but still indulging cravings for gluten-free cheesecakes and the like I wish I had some advice for you. Bone broth helped me, I think it can help leaky gut, maybe worth a try?  Dr Fasano's diet could be another option?
