Where in LA? There are PF Changs and Outbacks all over the place. (Check yahoo yellow pages for the addresses.) There may well be other restaurants, like mexican places, that you can work with the staff to find something you can have. I'm sure you'll find places, but for specific recommendations, it's helpful to know where in LA you're going to be. (It's a big sprawling mess down here... ;-) )

Don't worry too much. There are more restaurants than you can shake a stick at in LA, and more health conscious, special diet options than you might think. Can be tricky to find them, but some web searches will help.

For starters, there's a PF Changs (they have a gluten-free menu) at the Beverly Center (121 N. La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048. (310) 854-6467).

There's an Outback Steakhouse (they have a gluten-free menu) ten miles from there in Burbank (1761 N. Victory Place, Burbank, CA 91504 (818)567-2717).

This site, http://www.vegparadise.com/restaurants.html, lists vegetarian restaurants, which I put as an option because they can be more accustomed to vegans asking about ingredients and are likely to be more knowledgeable about those ingredients. (No guarantees they'll help, but they're an option.)

There's a Whole Foods (which is an upscale health-food store - good selection, but can be pricey) a few miles from there (6350 West 3rd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90036, 323.964.6800).

A touch farther than that is Bristol Farms (even more upsclale than Whole Foods) though I doubt they'd have a much larger selection of gluten-free stuff than Whole Foods (7880 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046, (323) 874-6301).

From the looks of things, the Bonaventure's restaurants also could probably handle your requests - particularly if you call ahead of time and let them know about it. I'm sure a google search will find you other resources. You could try calling the Celiac Disease Foundation, based in LA at (818) 990-2354, but I don't know how helpful they will be. But this list of links, http://www.celiac.org/connections.htm, that they list might have some useful people on it.

Good luck! I'm sure with a little bit of attention, you'll be fine.

Tiffany

    • I know this is an old post but I was happy to see it here!!  There have been numerous times lately that I swell up (like 3 to 4 lbs heavier) the morning after excess salt (chips, salted nuts, pickles, etc...). This happens even when I know I haven't been exposed to gluten plus I don't have the emotional side and GI issues that come with gluten.  I deflate typically within a day or two and have just recently figured out that seems sodium related.  I am now wondering if the sensitivity to salt is related to a decrease in magnesium.  I quit taking my calcium/magnesium supplement not too long ago (not for any reason... just ran out/got lazy)
    • Ok so is this really true?!?! Conventional? Remember, the fecal transplant was first described in the 1950s, but took decades to catch on as a conventional treatment for gut disorders, such as c-dif bacteria, partly because it was seen as crude and somehow objectionable. But it proved to work. Really well. So much so that it's now a fairly conventional treatment.
    • You are super sweet. I'm sorry your extended family isn't great about get togethers and cards. My family is the same. Once my parents died I don't have anyone who really cares about me except for my husband and kids. My parents started getting really weird about stuff as they got older, and my sisters are way older than me and we didn't grow up together, so we aren't close at all. In fact one sister hates me. They didn't even come to our parents funerals. Families pretty much suck so you gotta appreciate whatever you can put together for a support system. I come here every day looking for a smile or laugh, an encouraging word, or an opportunity to give advice. You guys are definitely part of my extended family   for what it's worth I would be up for secret santa.
    • Wow everyone my memory lane stuff just keeps popping up on this forum!!!! Thanks for sharing the post op and Audrey the pic. I had what looked like this on my inner left ankle in my late 20's!  It never got diagnosed at the time. I was seeing Dr's at time early pregnancy and then missed miscarriage.  dr's I had at the time I asked didn't know what it was. Period of time I had some of the worst headaches of my life etc. I didn't know if I had been bitten by a spider (brown recluse not in my area though) , the miscarriage, or picked up something from the hospital during my follow up miscarriage stuff-stirrup /ankle. I don't have a pic of it to share. Dr's didn't know, my mom a nurse didn't know , that left my husband who is a bit more holistic based and helped me on healing it  at home. I am really shocked to see see posts and all too often say wow! That's my .... from whatever decade  I'm newly recognized/diagnosed too so this was 15 years ago! wow if any one has any active pg I wish you comfort and swift healing . Been there but didn't have the puzzle piece until you gave it to me now. so many puzzle pieces....finally .....start making an image since I joined this forum.    
    • I can guarantee you that once you get your weight back up to normal, your period will come back.  You sound really malnourished and if your weight gets too low, your periods will stop.  Don't panic.......I was down to about 92-94 pounds at diagnosis so you will be able to heal if you do the diet correctly and don't cheat. Once you start to feel better and your other problems are under control , you will find it easy to stick to the diet. Nothing beats health!  Good luck to you!
