Before you go out to eat, there are 5 things you need to do (or consider to do) before you go out to eat. To ensure the best and safest gluten free dining experience possibly, you really need to make sure that the restaurant you are going to caters to all you dietary needs.
Here are the things you should do.
5 Pre-Gluten Free Dining Steps
Plain and simple, here are 5 pre-dining things you should really consider doing.
1. Call ahead
It’s always very important to call a restaurant ahead of time to see if they have a gluten free menu and to see if they can accommodate your special gluten free dietary needs. That way you can at least ensure that you can have a very safe gluten free dining experience.
2. Bring your own gluten free bread
This will work in 2 ways. First, if you know that you are going to a burger place and they don’t have gluten free bread, then bring a gluten free hamburger bun and just order your burger without the bun. Second if you know that other people in your party are going to be eating bread, don’t leave yourself out. Just bring your own bread that you can snack on. You can also bring crackers too.
3. Eat before you go
If the restaurant that you are going to has limited gluten free selections, then you should consider eating before you go. It doesn’t have to be a full pre-meal, but at least eat enough to reduce your hunger pains.
4. Research the restaurant that you are going to
It’s always very important to research whether or not the restaurant you are going to is gluten free or not. That’s why it’s always best to know before you go. And what better source is there than this epic gluten free menu post.
5. Plan your meal before you go
If you know that you are going to a certain restaurant, and they have an online menu (gluten free preferably) then you should consider planning your meal before you go. That way you don’t have to worry about trying to find the best and safest thing to order. It’s a pretty good time saver but it leaves all the hassle of trying to find the perfect entree at home.
And that’s it
