Salt Lake City Area

We're going to be near Taylorsville and West Valley City area for 5 to 8 nights with a family of 5, 2 of us gluten free. We will be staying in a hotel, and we'll be eating all our meals either in our room (lunch) or out at restaurants (dinner). For breakfast, the 2 of us that are gluten-free will just bring gluten-free cereal and eat that while the others eat at the hotel breakfast. I also plan to bring my toaster, so we can make toast in our room. There is a microwave and a small refrigerator. I was hoping some of you might have some suggestions as to safe places we can eat and also some stores we can shop at to get things to make in our room! I have never been to Salt Lake City before! This is a business trip for my husband. Thanks so much!!

Your in luck for buying gluten free food in Taylorsville. There is a completly gluten free grocery store in Taylorsville:

Against The Grain

2292 West 5400 South

Taylorsville, Utah 84118

Phone: (801) 955-4418

We shop there when we are in town.

We travel to SLC about 2 or 3 times a year, and here are some places we eat at while we are there. Of course you have your standard places Like ChickFilA (there was one realy close to our hotel and we ate there several times) and Outback and PFChangs. There is also a pizza place we like Pier 49 Pizza;

Here are the sites for the resturants;

Outback - The one we visit is in Sandy, but thats not too far from Taylorsville

I haven't eaten at the ZTejas in SLC, but the ones in Phoneix are good, but limited menu.

Great place for Hamburgers and French Fries and there is one close to Taylorsville

The PFChangs we visit frequently when in SLC. It is downtown, and they always do a great job of having our meals completly gluten-free...

Also, if you are down in the Provo/Orem area, there is a good BBQ place we like..

Wallaby's Smokehouse

Hope you have a great trip. I know traveling can be daunting when trying to find gluten-free places to eat...and you want to feel good on your trip! We bought the Udi's bread at Against the Grain and kept it in our fridge at the motel and had sandwhiches alot. Also, the people at that store might be able to give you a list of the resturants in the area that have gluten free menus. When we visited last time, they gave us a list.

Have fun!

You might call ahead of time and check the hours of Against The Grain because they are not open like regular grocery stores. It is in a strip mall, in the corner, but easy to find. There is a lot to do in SLC, and the canyons and mountains are beautiful, so hope you enjoy your stay. Good luck!

    • I was completely floored by the realisation after I went gluten free of just how badly it had been affecting me. Before then I had all these different things which I was either barely coping with, ignoring, trying to pretend they weren't there etc. I went gluten free and suddenly all sorts of different things started to resolve. It blew my mind! Try and get a blood test now before cutting it, its so much easier than going back on it for a gluten challenge.  If the test is negative, don't assume its not an issue for you. My test was negative but I responded to the diet.  Lots of help and advice here if you need it Best of luck! Matt
    • Gemma......if you are ever in London, please check out this place.  It is a 100% gluten free bakery and the food is out of this world!  I can't get bread like this in the States and it certainly is worth a road trip for anyone living in the Uk, within reasonable distance from London.  It will easily satisfy all of your bakery cravings and I bet the bread freezes well. http://www.beyondbread.co.uk/
    • Celiac disease can be dormant for years til a strain/stress to the immune system makes it come out. Many of us have had this issues, your infection run in might have triggered the dormant genes for the disease if you had them. I would follow up with the testing, see about getting a full celiac blood panel if you can, you have to be eating gluten for 12 weeks daily prior to testing. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/

        If not celiac it could be another food intolerance/sensitivity I suggest keeping a food diary and tracking what you eat, seasonings, how it is cooked etc. And how you feel later. Change up our diet more and look for patterns.  Here is stuff to read up on. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Yeah , i will look into getting tested - like you say there is no harm in it . What I found very interesting is the part where you say "Later I got pains in the stomach, usually a dull ache although I could get a fierce stabbing pain there too. When I went gluten free those pains stopped. as did my chronic sciatic backache which Ive subsequently realised was probably due to inflamed tissues pressing on nerves." - I also started to get chronic sciatic nerve pain on the right side over a similar time period and am wondering if its the same kind of thing. If I could solve both those things it would be life changing for me
    • Hi ,  i was thinking that an intolerance and allergy were about the same thing really but sorry if im wrong. I know celiac is an autoimmune disease but was thinking that is different again, more serious and was erring on the side of my possible issue not being that but more of the intolerance type. Clearly im just guessing though and dont know about this stuff , hence the posting for advice, The problem with trying to get tested is that in bolivia there are very limited tests and doctors are unreliable so you have to rely on yourself to certain degree. I have heard of a test here and was planning on looking into that but it made sense to try to get some opinions and advice online first so Im in a better position to understand if any tests here are actually reliable enough. I dont think there is an issue with travel parasites etc as I have already taken the medications thats would kill them like a course of albendazol and praziquantel and that was after a 2 week anti parasite cleanse. That did feel like it got rid of anything and the only issue I have been left with is this pain as described.
