I Got Sick

I came home from school yesterday and was ready to break out my toaster to make some gluten-free waffles for dinner and my mom stopped me and said that I bought you a Greek salad from where they got there pizza from. Now i have orded from here before and know that I am okay with eating there salad. well, I was finishing the last couple of bites and what do i find at the bottom of my salad a SOGGY CRUTON. I totally flipped and I am really paying for it now. It really sucks.

But needless to say my mom called and spoke with the manager and they made me a new salad and delivered it to my house. Restaurants just really dont understand how careful they need to be. But what is somthing that I could do in this case? I def. dont want this to happen again and I have eaten there many of times before and had no problems.

But I am def. hesitant about eating the new salad that they made me. Anyone have any ideas, maybe I could print out that card and give it to them and maybe that will give them a better understanding. Because they know my family in this pizza parlor, because we order from the qite offen. I need some Help!! thanks :)

P.S. celiac3270 not sure where I was supposed to post this??? hope its in the right spot B)

As much as I'm willing to occasionally deal with eating in a restaurant, I will NEVER eat food someone else ordered for me from a restaurant. (I had to turn my boss down when he did this for me one night a bunch of us worked late. I know he didn't understand, but I'm not going to get sick over it.) If _I_ can't be there to explain the situation, and guage how well the person I talked to understands my request, I ain't eatin' it. ;-) But that's how I deal with the situation... Maybe I'm just a control freak. :-) :-P

I don't think we are control freaks, ok well maybe we are, but it's because we HAVE to be in order to stay safe. I feel the same way. If I didn't order it, I am not eating it!!

Yea I understand your position, but this was my mom and she is extremely carefull and explained everthing to them. I still live at home and she goes to all of my doctors appts. with me and has been there for me the entire time, so it is def. there fault. because when she ordered the food she explained to them and that is why i guess they made me a new salad and delivered it to my house. But she is very knowledable about the diease and understands my needs because I live at home. I just think that the resaurtant just slipped up, but they took responsibility and made me a new one.

I was just looking for an idea on how better educated the pizza parlor, just so that they are extra careful everytime! Thanks :D

    • The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host Here's a good article to read.... http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/gluten-and-communion-whats-a-celiac-to-do-72220/
    • It's not the Teflon that is the problem. It is the tiny amounts of gluten that are hidden in the cracks of previously used cookware. Personally, (and I have had this confirmed by the UCLA celiac center), it is not necessary to purchase new cook ware when going gluten free. Once you have cleaned the cookware well and cooked on it a couple of times with gluten free food, all of the gluten will be gone. What IS necessary is to not continue to cook gluten containing items in those pots and pans. Now that you have your new pots and pans (and hopefully a gluten-free colander and a toaster), label them all gluten-free or not). Don't cook any gluten containing foods in your new pots and pans and you should be good to go.
    • Short answer to this:  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating? All of us!!!!!! It's mourning & it's normal. Breaking down in the grocery store & sobbing? Yep. Normal & I think we've all done it at least once if not multiple times. I would love to say more but dinner is calling me to go make it so I have to run for now. HUGS!
    • I found out roughly 3 -4 months ago by accident that I am gluten sensitive.  One day I woke up and had joint pain in just about every joint on my left side. ie, elbow, wrist, knuckles, hip, knee, ankle and feet.  I was already having issues with intense foot pain that I mistook for plantar fasciitis.  Once I googled the symptoms, and realized ALL of several other things were happening at the same time as a result of gluten as well, I knew the answer.  I had been bloating in my belly for decades, and also having migraines for years,  but as of this year, I was looking VERY pregnant after each gluten episode. This was highly upsetting.   I am 52, and fairly active otherwise.  I had Migraines, depression, anxiety and now joint pain and peripheral neuropathy.  I'm on anxiety meds, and have hypothyroidism and diabetes 2.   Getting to the bottom of the problems with my symptoms finally, has been exhilarating and exhausting at the same time.  I cannot test for Celiac because my insurance won't pay for this since I am not anemic and have no family history of Celiac.  Since I have been eating gluten-free, I have been feeling better, besides the mistakes that produce symptoms within 30 min-an hour. When I make a mistake, my symptoms come on faster and faster, and also more intense.  For example, I ate at a restaurant thinking I was okay, and by the time I got home and exited the vehicle I looked 7 months Prego, and my feet felt like I was walking on razor blades. The last week or two has been the best for not making mistakes, and finally I can eat without feeling horrible. Here's the thing:  I still can't wrap my head around this!  I comb through the forum for answers and have learned so much!  I have an extremely supportive boyfriend.  I just am in so much denial about this.  It's emotional for me and some days I just can't handle it.  I know many people with full blown Celiac's disease have it way worse than I do, I just can't deal with this very easily.  Has anyone else been through the denial phase and emotional upset upon realizing the life changes that have to happen just to feel better when eating?  What did you do about it?
    • The basic idea is that you don't want to use something that might have gluten in/on it.  Pots and pans are easy to wash and get clean - a colander is not - all those little holes full of pasta goo.  A toaster with crumbs.
