Gluten Free Eating In Ontario?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My son was recently diagnosed with celiac. We have been going gluten free at home but we are a family who eats out alot and especially when we are away at the arena for hockey games. But we have been avoiding eating out because it is too overwhelming just yet. But we are heading to Hamilton for a hockey tournament during March break and I'm a little nervous being away from home for a weekend. I have been told that swiss chalet would be a good choice and that pizza pizza and boston pizza have a gluten free pizza. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated espesially for the Hamilton area.

Pizza Nova also have a gluten-free crust available. I have not tried it. The Pizza Pizza one is okay, but I much prefer the Boston Pizza one.

Swiss Chalet is everywhere, and the rotisserie chicken is gluten-free, as is the dipping sauce (but NOT the gravy). The fries are not on the gluten-free list because a few small locations share fryers, but in full-sized ones with table service you should find a dedicated fryer.

McDonalds can provide some options. For breakfast, you can order the Big Breakfast without the English muffin. Some locations will allow you to substitute a second hash brown at no additional cost. The eggs, sausage patties and hash browns are gluten-free. All McDonalds locations, even small ones, have dedicated fryers for potato products.

Mmmmmm Swiss Chalet is gluten free? I am visiting Toronto in July and haven't been back home in many years. My mouth still waters when I think of Swiss Chalet. You can be sure that I will be having all the quarter chicken white with extra dipping sauce that I can get in three days!!!! Their fries are the best.. even better than McD's. Thanks for the good news! :)

Swiss Chalet's fries are fried in the same oil as chicken fingers, and their baked potatoes are not gluten free, they brush them with oil that is also used on items that contain gluten.

I am from Hamilton so I know quite a few places that are gluten free. Jack Astors has a gluten free menu, just be careful with the nachos- they say they are gluten free but they are fried in the same oil as chicken fingers.

The Keg also has a gluten free menu, a bit more fancy but you can get a really nice meal.

Montana's also has gluten free choices, their potato skins are and they are amazing

Wendy's has gluten free choices- chili, baked potatoes, hamburger patty, salads, frostys.

Thanks Brittany we were there on the weekend and had such a good time. We ate right at the hotel to have more time in the pool and just had plain steak and potatoe he loved it. We also hit Boston Pizza and he didn't even want the gluten free pizza he wanted moms special salad with grilled chicken. It is huge and he ate the whole thing practically! lol

That's good! I'm glad you got along well, it really isn't as hard as it seems. I travel a lot too and it is pretty easy to find items to eat! Where are you from?

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
