  1. Hey guys, I'm not sure if this is a silly question, but is it possible to get glutened from carrying closed pizza boxes containing regular wheat pizza? As part of my office job, I occasionally have to carry delivered pizzas into conference rooms (holding them for only 1-2 minutes). There's not necessarily any visible crumbs on the boxes, and I wash my hands immediately after. I just wasn't sure if the proximity to the wheat or the pizza smell could cause anything. Any insight is appreciated! P.S. Even after being diagnosed with Celiac for almost 9 years, I still have questions like these!
  2. Hey guys, Somewhat of a teenage-celiac problem here. I was just set up to go to a fraternity formal this week, most of which involves a sit down dinner. I just met the guy I was set up to go with, so would it sound annoying to bring up my celiac ahead of time, since we just met and I don't want to sound picky? I know the answer should feel obvious, "Tell him ahead of time!" but I don't want to make a big deal out of anything, and I'd honestly just feel more comfortable/safe eating ahead of time. Any advice on how to deal with this? Thanks! ~Ashlyn
  3. Gluten Free In Boston

    Thanks so much for the advice/help! (I apologize for responding so late...) Luckily, the waitress I had at the restaurant was very accommodating, although she did tell me to "eat at my own discretion, since there is wheat flying around the kitchen." (a very interesting way to put it haha.) I received my dinner and ate it with no problems (yay!) which was definitely nice and reassuring that I could eat at a restaurant without a specific gluten-free menu. Also on a side note, gluten free registry is such a great website, I'm definitely adding a bunch of the Boston restaurants to my list of places to go in the city! Again, thanks so much and I really appreciate your help!
  4. Gluten Free In Boston

    Hi everyone! This is my first official post on this forum (yay!) Since being diagnosed with Celiac almost exactly 3 years ago (Nov. 13th, 2008) I've always come to this site researching pretty much anything you can think of, and it's so great to have so much support and answers from everyone. Ok, time for a question! I'm currently a college student in Boston, and I'm going out to dinner with friends at a restaurant they recommended, Woody's Grill and Tap. Like my usual self, I researched the menu online and unfortunately, there is nothing specifically stated as being "gluten free." However, I did see a menu item that appeared gluten free: "Roasted Half Chicken- herb oil rubbed with garlic potato and french green beans." First off, does this seem like it could possibly be containing any "secret" gluten ingredients? Of course I'll ask the waiter at the restaurant, but is there anything specific I should ask, like does anyone see any cross contamination issues that could possibly arise? Since getting to college I've had to adjust to eating at restaurants that do not specifically have gluten free menus, so I'm just a little nervous. Any advice on eating out would be incredibly appreciated!! Thanks so much guys.
