Salsarita's

I just need a place to vent where other people will actually know how I feel. There's a mexican place where I live called Salsarita's which is mexican and kind of a fast food. like subway, you order your food and they make it in fron of you. well i looked it up online to decide which foods i could safely have. The chips were safe and the queso. Some of the meats were but none of the beans. My husband and sister and her bpyofriend and i all decided to try it.

When i got up to place my order i asked the girl who was going to put mine together to please change her gloves for me because she had just handled a flour tortilla. She gave me a very dirty look like i was trying to play some kind of joke on her. After she changed her gloves, i apologized for the inconvenience ans said i had a wheat allergy ad was just being careful. She then told me she did not need to take her gloves off for getting chips for me. I told her again, i am sorry but i have to be careful of contamination and she rolled her eyes at me. It was very embarrassing for me. I was not trying to cause a big scene or anything i just didn't want wheat particles on my chips!

The food was very good and the others behind the counter looked apologetic but i was just hoping to hear some encouragement from others who understood. I have had waitresses and waiters go look up ingredients and all kinds of other things. I would think changing plastic gloves wouldn't be such a hardship.

oh well, that's life. I will be going back though because i am sure she was just having a bad day. and the queso was AWESOME!

I feel ya. Grats you enjoyed your food and didn't' get sick! I can't find good mexican here that doesn't make me sick. I have reverted to making my own..LOL.

I feel your pain. This last weekend my hubby and me went camping out of town. We had our bestfriend watch the house and the dog. <_< Bad idea. Last night I went to make myself peanut butter and jelly on gluten-free waffels (my favorite comfort food), all the jelly was gone.... :ph34r: OK......I know he had real bread in the house because I saw the wrapper in the trash...OK....I call him ask him if he used my peanut butter on his "normal" bread...OF COURSE he did...what was I thinking...*trash*, OK how about the butter? OF COURSE...*trash*. I must have thrown away a ton of now contaminated food. GRR. And the frustrating part besides not getting my pb & j....he (my bestfriend), is telling me I am overreacting and gets angry at me because I am asking him all of the stuff he used in my house and was offended that I threw them away!!!!! :blink:

*sigh* I feel ya.

:* OK......I know he had real bread in the house because I saw the wrapper in the trash...OK....I call him ask him if he used my peanut butter on his "normal" bread...OF COURSE he did...*

I was informed yesterday that I may as well buy my own butter since my wife figures there's no way to keep crumbs out of the tub, what with the kids and all. She's probably right, but kids can be trained, hopefully. Adults, on the other hand, can be too self-serving to think about things like that-- really, if they're not inclined to be accomodating about other things, something like gluten which they barely understand, if at all, is barely going to make a dent.

I feel you there! I always had to ask when i lived with my parents. now that i am married my husband has his butter which he is allowed to gluten to his little hearts' content and i have my own nice clean safe butter. i did however convince him to get enough peanut butter out of the jar with the first swipe of the clean knife! :lol:

i know its not something most people have to think about. but like with people in a restaurant, if you say to not put tomatoes because you dont like them, then no big deal. but if you ask for no bread for actual medical reasons that's just so weird. :rolleyes: doesn't seem like it should so different

    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!
