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.

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! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
