I will be traveling out of town and I am wondering about eating breakfast out. Are there any restaurants that you have had any experience with? Thanks for the info!

You don't mention where you're going, which would make it easier to make suggestions.

Amazingly enough, I've had goof luck at Waffle House. They make the food right there in front of you and the place where they make eggs and bacon is away from the waffles and pancakes. It's also a homey type place where they really care about the customer. The menu states that they use Hormel bacon and sausage. I also usually get an omelette and grits. Be very vlear with the waitress that toast can't touch your food, because they put toast on every dish.

I'd feel pretty safe with eggs, fruit, bacon (not at McDonald's, though, McDonald's bacon has wheat starch) and sausage almost anywhere. Check on the brand but virtually all bacon and sausage is gluten-free.

If you end up at an IHOP, beware of the omelettes. They put pancake batter in them to fluff them up. You CAN get an egg white or egg replacer omelette, though. Or maybe they'll crack some eggs just for you.

I like Bob Evans. I often get the fried mush with eggs, bacon, etc. Closest thing to bread with breakfast I've discovered.

I also go to Cracker Barrel. You can get fried potatos (not the potato cassarole), eggs, pork chops and pinto beans.

:) I just went to the Denny's Restaurant site and they have the listing of all of their food and the allergens. I am going for breakfast on Sunday, so I hope everything will be okay.

Thanks for all your suggestions! I went out of town to Phoenix, Arizona and ate breakfast at a Denny's restraunt and did great! I had hash browns, eggs and bacon. No reactions and they were very accomadating.

I just almost had a real problem with Denny's while traveling in Oklahoma City. I have eaten the Nachos without getting sick, but, last time, I got very ill.

This time, I asked first, because we were traveling from St. Louis, MO to McAllen, TX. This is a 1200 mile trip, no time to be fighting a gluten attack!

Anyway, I asked the waitress to check with the kitchen to see if they were safe or not, because I have had good and bad experiences eating them. She came back out and told me they were safe, and I KNEW she did NOT understand me at all, and had NO clue!!! I then got the manager who checked in a book and found that they are NOT safe. The manager said she was new, her 2nd day. I told the manager she really needed to educate the cooks and waitresses to refer questions like that to a manager. Anyway, I found a safe meal to eat and all is well.

BUT! I just checked with the website and they have an allergen list available. HOWEVER, they report Rice Krispies to be safe, and I know they contain malt flavoring which makes them NOT safe. I sent them an e-mail and will see what that brings.

Thanks for listening!

I have also had good experiences with several Waffle Houses. You just have to make sure that your waitress understands that white bread has wheat in it! My local IHOP has also been very accomodating, though a little more limiting than Waffle House and significantly more expensive.

Yes, Waffle House (down here in The South) is good as long as you watch them! Sometimes they use the same rags with everything and let things touch, so watch.

McDonalds is good, too. Especially since they are all over.

I really like the places that have fruit that you can pick yourself . . .I am big on bananas and apples.

Depending on the city you can find out in advance if there are places who cater to Celiacs, like in more major cities.

Talking and making your problem known is good so that they can help and make sure your order doesn't get screwed up.

    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
    • When you're looking for answers the negative endoscopy may seem like bad news in a funny way, it did for me when the doctor told me, but really as CL said it's good.  Keep working with your doctors.  From what you've said before gluten could still be the problem.  Now you've eliminated celiac you can try removing it from your diet, but it's important that you do it safely. You don't want to cause a problem while trying to fix one. Most people get a lot of B vitamins in particular from gluten foods. So if you make a change to your diet do it with your mom, ideally involve your doctor or a dietician and keep a diary of your symptoms too, sometimes called a food journal. You may still have found your answer, don't panic and don't lose heart. Best of luck Matt
