A lot of people always ask me why I decided to run a business and website about the gluten free diet.
A lot of people ask me how I’m able to get up every morning and work my butt off to build the greatest gluten free restaurant menu directory in the world.
And a lot of people ask me why I focus so much on making your dining experiences a lot safer and healthier..
Well, here’s why.
It’s words and emails and messages like these that encourages me to keep doing what I’m doing…
This is an absolutely wonderful blog. To make my story short, I have been diagnosed with numerous typed of coinfections associated with Lyme Disease. My doctor recommended I go to a gluten, dairy, and sugar free diet. She said my sugar levels are good now. (She knows I do use a teaspoon of sugar in my decaf. coffee) she is fine with that. She insists I stay gluten free however. It is costly, time consuming, and so on. I would imagine you get the picture. I also have Fibromyalgia throughout my body and I am just not the same person. I am however learning to cook more gluten free with the help of a few good friends and family. My fiance is all on board with this.
The only problem we were having was trying to find restaurants we could go to that had gluten free menus. Thank you so very much for doing all of this hard work. Perhaps the better way to put it is, time consuming work. ‘
Thank you again Adam
I came across your blog by a simple search. Our family is now gluten free and it hasn’t been easy. Thanks so much for all of your info. It’s so confusing trying to figure out what is gluten free and not gluten free! I just wanted to let you know you ROCK! thanks for all of the tips and menus, etc.
Keep it up!
It is truly amazing to find all of this wonderful info in one place. Awesome job man! Thanks so much!!!
Have you thought about creating an iphone app? I would buy it in a heartbeat.
I cant believe it took me three years to find this blog!
Just wanted to send you a quick note to say THANK YOU for creating your posts on the gluten free menus at restaurants. I’m new to being gluten free and your posts are helping me immensely. Keep up the amazing work!!!
Just want to say thank you for your website! I am coming to America next year (from New Zealand) and wanted to badly to try all the different fast food chains (we have hardly any here) but didn’t want to spend my whole holiday sick! This is going to help so much and my partner will be happy because he is not wheat free, so now he wont feel guilty for wanting to go and try all the different food!!
This has been a great help so far, I love that you give more information than what types of food are gluten-free and give modern restaurant recommendations. Thank you for running this marvelous site, you are doing a spectacular job
I’ve just started a gluten free diet after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, which I didn’t even know was a thing until some medical person casually mentioned that I have it. I did some research on my own and discovered that my symptoms may be alleviated by a gluten free diet. I’m excited to try! I live in central Oklahoma, so some of the restaurants that you have posted menus for are not available here. I have virtually no friends or family who are GF (except for my husband ‘s cousin’s husband, who lives in Illinois–he might as well live on the moon and cannot be my GF buddy; and a Facebook friend who I may have had a class or two with in law school), so I need all the help that I can get.
Thank you for creating and maintaining your site! I used your suggestions for eating at Panera the other day and it went well.
And this regards to my book…
I keep this copy of this small book in my car. It is so helpful that I just bought a second copy to keep in my husband’s car and a third copy to give to a friend who also has to eat gluten free.
It has made me realize what a scam some of the companies that produce “healthy” foods are running. I bought “gluten-free” ice cream, which costs more and tastes awful, thinking I could never eat real ice cream again. Thanks to this book, I discovered that almost all flavors of Baskin Robins ice cream are gluten free. I also discovered Jason’s Deli. There is one close to our house, but I had never eaten there. The had the best gluten-free bread I have eaten. Tastes almost like real bread.
Great, helpful book! Book was exactly as described and was very helpful in helping determine what my son could and could not eat when eating out.
And lastly this…
Nice little book you can carry in your purse. Has wealth of information. Used it at lunch today. I highly recommend it.
So to answer those people’s question, all I can say is that I care about YOU way too much to let you down.
I didn’t write this to brag, but instead show you why I work so hard to keep this site running.
So here’s to you! 🙂
Thank you for taking the time to compile all of this information. I was recently told by my doc that due to some stomach issues, I need to avoid gluten and dairy for a while, and my first thought was “what am I supposed to eat then???” My family and I went out to dinner last night and it was overwhelming trying to figure out what I could eat in a restaurant that serves predominantly burgers and sandwiches. A simple search for gluten-free chain restaurant menus brought up your site and I was able to figure out something to order that wasn’t just a plain dinner salad. I’ve already bookmarked about 20 of your restaurant menu pages. Thanks again!
An app would be amazing…I would buy it for sure. This is the first REAL site I have read in over 12 years of celiac. I find some restaurants are either so clueless they poison me, or so scared of poisoning me they give me the option of boiled chicken and some carrots. I love this site, and really appreciate the time you are taking to build it. Let me know if you want some Canadian content! I know we have some differences even within chains. Oh – BTW – McDonald’s fries and hash browns are GF and in a dedicated fryer in Canada, unfortunately, the recipe for the US market contains wheat to make them more crispy. Next time you visit your neighbours to the North, don’t forget to get fries with that.
