Thoughts on Gluten free Restaurants and eating out!
I have had a lot of people approach me, with questions about eating out and remaining Gluten free! Well, as I’ve said in other articles, today it isn’t quite as challenging as it used to be. I could give you a list of restaurants that have gluten free menu’s, but I’m not sure it’s necessary! I’ll explain why! Today most restaurants seem to be aware of the gluten free diet and many of them even understand the cross contamination issue. Many cook your orders in a separate part of the kitchen to ensure the gluten free safety. What I do is first, choose a restaurant I’d like to visit! Then I look up the restaurant online to see if they have a gluten free menu. If they do have one, at that point I will call and ask about how they are with preparing the food separately from other gluten containing foods. Most restaurants are glad to answer those questions. If you can’t get a clear answer, if they don’t seem to understand, then it’s best to avoid that place for now. Also, it’s a good idea to check back with the restaurant periodically to see that nothing has changed. Sometimes they change hands, or the menu. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me on the comment section of this blog! Thanks so much and Happy Gluten free Living! Iris
