Hi Tica -

I do not know of any in Breckenridge per se. I know this question came up last Winter/Spring as well so do a search.

Here is a link to a previous thread with one restaurant idea:

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.php?showtopic=40300

I will let you know, in Silverthorne (you would need a car to get there) there is a place called the Sunshine Cafe. In my pre-gluten-free days I used to love eating there when I was in the mountains. Back in November as my Dad and I kicked off the ski season we decided to stop there. I figured I would gamble and worse case order a naked burger or something.

While waiting for our table I talked to (I believe the owner) and asked if they had a gluten-free menu, he said not yet, but they are working on getting one together sometime Q1 2009.

We sat down to eat and everyone there is always really nice, the server was very helpful as I decided to order the enchiladas. She was able to confirm the green chile that came on them was made with no gluten ingredients and the corn tortillas were gluten-free as well as the chicken or chorizo options.

I love Mexican food so that's why I went for this option. Based on certain events in my life I do not guarantee that this stuff was in fact gluten-free, but they are aware of what being gluten-free is and are willing to check on ingredients.

Good luck and have a safe trip. The mountians are getting some good snow today, hopefully it will continue so your trip will be perfect.

Thanks so much for the link. We had already planned on going to City Market upon our arrival to Breckenridge.

I was glad to see that Mi Casa has a gluten-free menu. We'll be sure to go there one night.

I don't know how helpful this will be but when we were last year we went to a restaurant where one of the waitresses was a celiac. (Of couse, I don't know if she is still there). She wsa very helpful, the food was good, and I didn't have any problems.

Of course, I can't remember the name of the restaurant but it is on the main street of Breckenridge on the lower level of the building. I think it may be a man's name, like Bob's, or something. The restaurant has lots of old signs on the walls from the businesses that have gone out of business in the town over the years. Maybe someone familiar with Breck knows the name of the place.

I just googled and I think it is Downstairs at Eric's. downstairsaterics.com

    • Update: I have been taking Chanca Piedra (specifically, Royal Break-Stone, by Whole World Botanicals) on an empty stomach in the morning for the liver-gall bladder and surprisingly my lips are almost normal. I know the peeling lips may be caused by different issues but I hope this info helps someone.
    • Hi Cristiana, I'm so sorry that you are still not feeling well.  When do you go back to your Dr? I wish I could help more, but it's so hard to know what was what when I was on the PPI.  I was diagnosed with celiac and h. Pylori on the same day so I was already feeling awful.  Then I was put on 2 antibiotics with the  PPI.  I do remember feeling terribly nauseous, but just assumed it was the antibiotics.  When I started tapering, I still wasn't feeling well.  It really took months before I started to feel decent.  But I assume that it was the celiac. I really hope you start to see some improvement...((((hugs))))
    • @scorpio it has now been almost 2 years and I am curious if you ever found something that worked for you. My boyfriend suffers from EC as well and I am desperate to find a resolution for his sake. He's been dealing with it for over a year now and it is taking a toll on his work and social life.   Any updates would be helpful
    • I am going through the diagnosis stage as well. My family has strong history for celiac disease, and while I always had discomfort and other symptoms ( some of which i didnt know about) I wasn't tested until recently because I was DEATHLY afraid of needles. The results are highly positive but I am still getting a biopsy in early August. From what I have learned about it is that the endoscopy is beneficial to looking for not only signs of celiac but also other diseases that have similar symptoms to celiac. Because of your mixed result it wouldn't hurt to get a biopsy but it really is personal preference. I understand what you are going through and didn't like the idea much either but I really think it is something that can help you in the long run. P.S. There are lots of testing being done for new medications or other ways to "cure" celiac other than a gluten-free diet. It is my understanding that this can only be covered by insurance with a confirmed diagnosis (biopsy) but I don't need to get into that. The bottom line is that a biopsy is confirmatory especially since the doctors could see in the intestine, so to me, I feel better knowing that there's no chance of going gluten-free for nothing.
    • Hi Everyone!  Thank you for all your responses!  This site is so helpful and I appreciate everyone who replied to my post.   I was able to get an earlier appt with Maureen Leonard who was absolutely wonderful like you all said and after more testing and even a genetics test, my son now has a diagnosis of celiac disease.  He's been gluten free now for a few weeks.  He is doing very well on the diet so far.  He does seem to be sleeping better which was always a problem since he was an infant, so that is a good sign!  We test in 3 months and I hope that his iron levels go up.
