Hello,

Social events have been a bit challenging to say the least. Do you find that you are now avoiding eating out with friends, co-workers and sometimes family members because of gluten contamination?! We are. Let's chat and if we find that we live in driving distance to each other., perhaps we can form our own social group.

We are a married couple, no children and we are both gluten sensitive. Our one and only safe and favorite restaurant serves Indian food exclusively. We are open to other recipes.

I'm not in your area, but yes, social situations become more challenging. We don't get invited over to eat as often (although our really close friends have all learned to deal with it), and the folks at the office rarely ask me out for lunch. I have to initiate it.

Do you entertain? If you ask others over then you can control what's on the menu. As for restaurants, do you have Outback, PF Chang, or Bonefish Grill in your area? They both have gluten-free menus. This doesn't mean there isn't contamination sometimes, but at least you know what you can try to eat.

Tammy-

I am a long ways away (oregon) so getting together would be hard, but your mention of indian food got me curous. I have basically given up going out to ANY ethnic food (except sushi) because I keep on fainling to be able to explain what I need to folks in the kitchen who may not speek english. I have gotten burned too many times.

I really miss indian food, my favorite!, but have been too intimidated to try. Do you have to get very specific with your requests? Is the food mostly gluten-free in the first place?

Hi Libbyk,

We love both of the Indian restaurants especially because they make most of their food withour wheat! Of course we do not eat the NAAN and the Rotis. But their pakoras are made with chickpea flour and are yummy. I do ask if the oil is fresh and not used for frying wheat products. We eat most of their menu choices and love it!
